I would prefer something half-useful to something that might end up
being thrown away. My favorite cool toy of this kind is the folding pen
(see http://www.core77.com/blog/object_culture/folding_pen_5888.asp),
because it has a huge "woah that's cool!" factor.

That's more expensive than stickers, but maybe we could find a
reasonable way to not give too many of them away (like ask visitors to
answer an XMPP-related trivia before giving them away).
