How about 30 extra pounds and no health care Just brainstorming here, but maybe: nice Levi's selvedge jeans ( those are still made here, right?), quality cowboy hats (or even tricorn hats), an Amish quilt, Vermont maple syrups, Spirit of St. Louis model, antique V-J Day newspaper. How about a Bowie knife? This post brought to you by Bacardi Select.
2 parts Eagle Rare bourbon, 1 part St. Germain elderflower liqueur, dash of Fee Bros. bitters, garnish w/ cherry. This was an experiment...not sure I'll be repeating it.

Sometimes the person (or in the case of HR directors, meat-with-eyes) on the other end isn't authorized to alter the base salary, so you can sometimes make it up in less conspicuous extras like that.
