It is common for new people who join the Board to be showered with newbie gifts. Depending on the gift, they might be useful, fun, dangerous, or any combination thereof. Bumper stickers, lembas, Canon Cookies, and mongeese were once popular newbie gifts, but their popularity has decreased to the point of obscurity.
Some Boarders give particular, iconic gifts.
- Tawaki gives plovers.
- Ailavyn Siniyash gives lined Infinite Notebooks, often coloured in some eye-searing colour.
- Iximaz used to give animals that sound weird, but now hands out plates of SPaGhetti.
- Desdendelle gives tea: whether it is predatory or confused Lapsang Souchong depends on his mood.
- SkarmorySilver gives his own shed feathers, and occasionally a complimentary kit of Spikes.
- Voyd gives magic shovels, with enhancement modifiers and special weapon qualities.
- Matt Cipher gives slices of Infinite Pizza.
