I'm not sure what the correct term for this is, or if there is one. I use it to refer to the tricks set up at the beginning of a show, which are occasionally alluded to and built up to conclude with or near the climax.

In my first show, I had a card selected near the beginning, guessed "wrong" a few times throughout the show, and then had it revealed on the tickets' QR code.

In another show, we did a bill vanish early in the show and had it reappear in a sealed envelope that had been given out earlier.

I imagine the different kinds of card/bill-to-fruit or whatever would also fill this role.

What are some other ideas?

A simple envelope or box suspended high above the audience from the start of the show can be effective. It's worked well for others in the past.
"No man, when he has lighted a candle, covers it with a vessel, or puts it under a bed; but sets it on a candlestick, that those which enter in may see the light.
For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither any thing hid, that shall not be known and come abroad."

Luke 8:16-17

I love this type of trick, especially when it is completely unexpected in the end. I have found, that memory work works well if that fits your style.
