So you've been given the task to find gifts for outgoing board members and have exactly 3 weeks to have something awesome to present them at their final board meeting. This can be a daunting task, most likely you've been given little or no direction and have absolutely no idea what someone who is three times your age with 100 times your income could possibly want.
Your scenario might not be exactly like the one described above, but I bet its similar. I've been in the engraved gifts business for over 10 years and have received countless emails and phone calls from administrative assistants, HR consultants and even the directors of HR in full panic mode looking for the perfect gift for outgoing board members. Most have never ordered gifts before and aren't quite sure of the process. What type of gift is appropriate? Should they have something engraved? What should they have engraved? How long does it take? Can you work with the logo from our website? The questions go on and on. So let's take this step by step.
The newest trend in gift giving is colorful Art Glass. Combining the craftsmanship of glass blowers with the finest in optic crystal manufacturing and the skill and precision of engraving, these pieces combine individual beauty and unique coloring to Vases, Bowls and Flame Awards. Especially appropriate for innovative board members, those involved with the arts or anyone who would appreciate fine workmanship.
Engraved Crystal & Glass Bowls are traditional gifts that will forever remain popular. There is enough room to engrave a meaningful phrase, logo and recipient's name and they look elegant when displayed in a cabinet or on a table. I read an article in a magazine just recently that helped me understand why people give bowls, "every bowl recreates the act of cupping one's hands, in greeting or in gratitude" - innately we seem to know this.
4. Etched Vases
Honor the hard work board members with a crystal or glass vase that has been inscribed for your organization letting them know how much you appreciate their valuable time. Vases provide an excellent area for showcasing your insignia, logo and customized words. Like bowls, vases are a traditional gift, that are available in crystal, art glass and glass.
