Notes On-the-Go

ROYCE 2

Everyone needs a reminder. You may have been plotting out your New Year’s resolution even before 2019 ended. Now that we’re more than halfway done with the first month of 2020, do you still remember them all completely? If you happen to memorize them all, then good for you, but the truth is, not everyone has a very retentive memory. Understandably, there are a lot on everyone’s minds right now, not just the resolutions themselves, but also the insurmountable load of work which may have been left off in the recent Holiday season. With that being said, nothing would be better than to keep a handy reminder around. Reminders come in many forms. Most of us have them in our cellphones. There are apps which allow you to keep tabs on your work schedules and other important events. There are also miniature calendars which may be carried around in your bag and work files, but are you seriously going to carry a calendar in your bag? It’s the 2020’s, after all. No, you need something more efficient and lightweight, you need a sticky note. While that may have sounded a bit too simplistic at first, do not let that distract you from its various uses. Here are just a few examples:

1. An effective way to note down your work pointers.

Daily routine tends to do something to you that other forms of activity may not, it can make you bored, it can make you repetitive, it can make you complacent, too complacent that you’d make the critical mistake of not listing down your important schedules and deliverables. There are people who have the luxury of owning a planner, an organizer of some sort in which they can jot down their ideas and important work information. This would obviously be practical, if it weren’t for the fact that it takes up a huge bulk of space in your bag. You need something lightweight, something that you can carry around. You need something that would allow you to take your notes with you when needed and be nimble enough to stick on memory boards for when you need to share the information with your workmates. A sticky note would let you do just that. People tend to underestimate them since they always seem to be in one of those bookstore shelves that most onlookers would ignore, perhaps it’s due to their size. But remember, big things always come in small packages, and a sticky note is a perfect example of that.

2. A fun and creative way to remind you of your work.

We’ve already discussed about the convenience and flexibility of sticky notes when it comes to writing down important details, now it’s time to discuss about its non-conventional look compared to other blank planners. Reminders, especially about work details, tend to be dull most of the time. Do you ever find yourself lulling off to sleep during meetings due to the fact that you’re just spacing out on a blank document? White space and monotonous speaker voice aside, you are perhaps hoping to liven up your business meetings. A sticky note does something that a normal notebook or a reminder can’t. They can express creativity amidst the dull corporate routine. Have you noticed that “stickies” usually come in different colors? For the most part, it is for the sake of segregating important details from the least important ones, but aside from that, it also pops out from the normal white paper, which also indicates top priority deliverables from those which were written on plain, white paper. Go for something that catches your attention, not something that puts you to sleep.

3. A creative way to communicate.

Your usual office memo and announcements would usually come in a very formal letter form. For some, it’s just your typical paperwork or office document, something that you’d glance through once, screenshot or photo copy for the record, then proceed to pass to your workmate in the other cubicle. It’s just one of those routine paperwork that happens to get handed down every once in a while. For the most part, these messages are boring, plain and simple, it adds nothing to the interest of the employees. Some memos and announcements are even a mere sentences long, a few words for some, if the one announcing knows how to convey the context proficiently. In such case, a sticky note would be more up to the job than plain paper.

4. An eco-friendly alternative to using a whole page bond paper.

Sticky notes are a lot smaller than a bond paper. They are easier to stash away and dispose of when you’re done with the business details or pointers jotted down on them. The less paper you stash, the lesser garbage you’ll add to the environment. Of course, they are still considered garbage when thrown, but when you consider throwing away a bundle of used sticky notes than a bundle of used bond paper, the mound and size is considerably noticeable. Bond papers, while useful at most in the office, are not nifty to dispose of. Your office would need a shredder in order to dispose of them in a compact manner, especially if they contain confidential details. Sticky notes, on the other hand, are always easier to conceal.

These examples may just change your mind in choosing sticky notes for the office. If you do, however, already own one, then why not share these conveniences with others? If you’re the head of a company, a sticky note would be the perfect gift for those corporate events. We may suggest the Royce Sticky Flags as a go-to choice. It’s the best on the market nowadays and offered in high-quality. Gift Solutions can attest to that as the number one provider of gift items in both corporate and non-corporate events.

A Healthy Resolution for the New Year

WATERBOTTLEIt’s the start of a New Year. A fresh start, a new beginning, a brand new decade. For the most part, you may have already had a successful and fruitful decade behind you, with the opportunity to keep the ball rolling. May it be with your career or meaningful relationships, you’d definitely want to look ahead to a brighter tomorrow, a brighter prospect. The question is, what if your recent decade had been somewhat of a subpar experience? What if this new start is your main opportunity to do something big for the many aspects of your life? What if you’re really planning on finally breaking out into the world beginning this 2020? Well, no worries, as we have a few suggested items, tools of the trade as you may call them, to help you start out the year right. These particular items, as simple as they may be, may be of a great assistance in the long run, well enough to make an impact towards your New Year resolutions. Of course, results may always vary, but regardless of your end goal for the year (and even for the decade), once done consistently, you’re on your way to a brighter tomorrow:

1. Start the day right.

Most of the time, people fret going to work. Most people do not want to go through hours long traffic, just to reach work at least fifteen to thirty minutes late. The thing is, it’s not just the traffic that people are worried about, it’s also the endless stream of commuters during the morning that adds to the whole stress. More often than not, the crowd simultaneously trying to catch a ride reaches a staggering amount, with not enough taxis to accommodate the huge influx of commuters. Aside from that, the outdated condition of the local transit isn’t helping with the whole situation, adding in a huge blow to everyone who even plans on getting to work on time. Yes, it is indeed a drag going through this very problem every morning, but remember, as bad as it may be, you still have the option to make things right. The biggest catalyst for stress and illness is always a person’s outlook on every situation. If you think that the traffic will always slow you down, along with the usual crowd of commuters, then in reality, they definitely would. But if you happen to give yourself a head start, for example, then everything may go smoothly on your end. A great resolution would be to never be late for work or any appointment again for that matter, and that may be accomplished by not binge watching on your favorite shows during weeknights. Get an early good night’s rest in order to wake up early the very next day, and be able to brew a fresh cup of coffee to energize you for work. Waking up early may sound simple at first, but it obviously isn’t (it never is, especially for those who aren’t a morning person). One main thing that may help you ease things up would be that fresh cup of coffee. Get yourself a coffee press set at the beginning of the year and see wonders unfold as the sun begins to rise.

2. Organize your daily activities.

The best way to translate this resolution would be to “write things down.”  More often than not, you may find yourself burdened with daily activities, work, travel, family, they can all get mixed up if you’re not careful. If that isn’t bad enough, you may forget an important thing or two in the scramble, thus, rendering your activity for the day incomplete. Be wise about your deliverables and write it all down. Getting yourself an organizer/planner may seem like a simple choice, but watch it do wonders for you. You can list down your work pointers, you can add in your family activities for the upcoming weekend, you may even jot down important events such as your kid’s birthdays and your other-half’s wedding anniversary. A notebook doesn’t entirely have to be about your work, after all. Remember, it is merely but a compilation of blank pages, its contents are going to be based of your daily life, and all of these would involve the most important details that you’d never want to miss. Some of these details may include keywords and definitions, but most of the time, they would include dates, months, time of the day, names, and even notes about the people you’d either meet with or are part of those day-by-day plans. You just have to elaborate on these details in order to keep things organized and clear. Never miss another beat again.

3. Stay hydrated.

It’s as simple as that. You may have been skipping on your daily intake of water this past decade, but now is the perfect time to change all that. Quit on sodas and alcoholic drinks, instead, for a fresh and undeniably perfect option. A person’s regular water intake per day should be eight (8) glasses or more, so start from there. We’re not just focusing on your daily intake at home or at work, we also dwell on your hydration during workout. After a strenuous routine, have time to take a breather, sit or stand, whatever you’re comfortable with, breathe in and breathe out, and drink to refill that lost body fluid. Remember to get yourself a durable water container that you can carry around all the time. You may opt for a water bottle, for example, a lightweight choice for people who are always on-the-go. Remember, dehydration has its negative effects on the body. You’re better off drinking from time to time, instead of letting all the food intake flow in without any accompanying fluids. They tend to build up, sugar, carbs, all of those nutrients which your body should be breaking down, they aren’t able to due to lack of water.

It is understandable to obtain all of them in one go for a more complete execution of your plans for the New Year. However, you may also gift them to others who you may feel would need all the help that they can get in order to improve their lifestyle this 2020. In such case, we recommend Gift Solutions and their fine lineup of customizable gift items. All of the items that we’ve mentioned (even those that weren’t) are definitely of high-quality and refined to meet the needs of those you are gifting to, may it be for corporate events or other personal celebrations.

The Corporate Kris Kringles

december 2

The holiday season is finally here! Companies left and right are planning out their parties and are trying to come up with the perfect gift for their employees. Of course, giveaways are a staple of  corporate Christmas celebrations, which is why it is the organizer’s job to make sure that everyone will have a good time with the program and that all of the employees would receive a great amount of giveaways and loot by the end of the night. May it be an elegant gift or a simple one, corporate giveaways should at least feature two main things, functionality and convenience, and both should be in favor of office activities. In such case, no need to look any further than our list of appropriate gifts this upcoming Yuletide season. Take note that these following items are tentative, and every suggestion should still be consulted with your superiors at work, unless you are given the freedom to plan everything out in one go.

1 .)Stress Balls
Christmas parties, along with the other festive events held at the office for that year, are meant to loosen up your employees and co-workers. It should be a time for them to have fun, a time for them to relax, a time for them break the ice with the people from the other department whom they might have come across with, but haven’t spoken to throughout the workdays. Indeed, parties should be a relaxing time for the employees, which is why the very first item on the list focuses on that very purpose. Stress balls are very therapeutic in the sense that employees can “squeeze” away their concerns. The thing about stress is that they tend to bottle up inside a person’s mind, inside a person’s emotion, hence, why stress balls would enable them to vent out their possible frustrations through a simple squeeze. It might seem silly at first, but there’s a reason why even company executives always have a few of these in their pockets, they know the importance of letting off steam rather than bottling them up.

2.)Stainless Mug

One of the most obvious choice for a corporate giveaway would have to be something that enables your co-workers or employees to refresh every once in a while. Being able to have their morning, afternoon, or evening fix of coffee would allow them to stay awake and be alert during the most critical parts of the day. If hot drinks aren’t their thing, however, they may also opt for a much cooler alternative, perhaps an organic fruit blend for that healthy office boost? Or how about a nice cold sip of soft drink to get that tiny dose of caffeine and sugar? With a stainless mug, the recipients would have options due to it being compatible with either hot or cold beverages. Of course, you may opt to consider the size of the container, as some of the employees may have liters in mind instead of a few ounces, but regardless, we can all agree that everyone needs their refreshments, and especially for those who would go out for meetings, a handy sturdy mug can do wonders for the day.

3.)Folding Umbrellas

Another obvious choice for a corporate giveaway, an umbrella is both fancy and functional, especially during the monsoon season. We can all agree that the Philippines has one of the most unpredictable weather patterns ever. Regardless of the weather reports earlier, you may find yourself running towards a shed due to the heavy afternoon rain, an unexpected occurrence in spite of the cool, sunny morning air. Perhaps it is just a mere indication of our tropical climate, hence, why employees should always be aware and ready when it comes to travelling outdoors. Part of the preparations should be bringing an umbrella for every meetings done outdoors. Not only would a nifty umbrella be a valuable tool to deflect the unwanted effects of the weather, it would also be a great opportunity to promote your company, as some umbrella manufacturers would allow you to customize and add in your logo, thus hitting two birds with one stone. Do keep in mind that the quality of the umbrella would also matter, as low standard materials would only flip the umbrella during strong winds. Aside from that, take note that we also specified this item as a folding umbrella, due to the fact that they are more convenient to walk around with, even compact enough to be put in your duffel bag during the trip.

The Season of Giving

DECEMBER 1

For employees and executives alike, nothing can be more exciting than the most anticipated yearly Christmas parties. Not only would it give everyone a well-deserved break from all of the hard work and stress brought about by deadlines and fierce negotiations, it would also be a perfect opportunity for co-workers to see what their officemates are like when not enclosed in a very professional demeanor.

The thing about parties is that people would be willing to show their wacky side, even amongst their most serious co-workers, further breaking the ice in an otherwise humorless setting. For the most part, fun is fun when the bosses decide to chime in as well, and all gloves are off to celebrate another Yuletide season. In lieu of this, nothing can provide more smiles in a company gathering other than gifts and giveaways.

Of course, it would fall on the boss and party organizers to decide which gifts would best fit the occasion, but if ever you’re one of the assigned committees to organize the whole thing and you have no idea whatsoever regarding the right corporate giveaways, worry no more, as we’ve enlisted a few suggestions for you.

1.) A Crafty Paperweight

While it may not be the obvious choice for an office equipment, paperweights usually do their job well, staying true to their purpose of setting documents in their place. No one wants to lose an important contract, no one wants to lose a valuable invoice, no one wants to lose those critical “minutes of the meeting.”

Yes, they may be considered as a lowly ornament at times, but even this lowly ornament does wonders that goes unappreciated most of the time. Of course, you wouldn’t want to give your employees something as boring as a circular rock, so instead, you’d go for one of those porcelain or plastic paperweights which comes in many designs and colors. Take note, however, that the boss or company executive may also have a say in this, so if ever they would want a customized paperweight with the company logo and color etched on it, then you may have to go for that instead. After all, the boss will definitely be always right.

2.) A Desk Calendar

Here something trivial, yet very functional that the employees would greatly appreciate, at least for the upcoming new year. A desk calendar would provide that well-needed reminder, especially if they’re the ones who are usually sent to outdoor meetings. Clients and business partners are meticulous when it comes to time, and what better way to show face then to show up on time, at the right date, at the right appointment. Marking down meetings in a calendar has been an act that has been done through the decades, with the rise of smartphones, people began to transition towards their “digital reminders,” but time and time again, studies have proven that information written down has a far better chance of being remembered than those which are merely typewritten. We also have to mention that desk calendar are customizable as well. You may even color code office events accordingly, this would of course have to be consulted with the higher ups of the company, since schedules should always be confirmed without further announcements and notices.

3.) Duffel Bag

Here’s something that employees would greatly appreciate, especially those who are sent to meetings almost on a daily basis. A duffel bag would greatly come in handy, due to the fact that it would be able to carry all of the necessities needed for the said appointment. An average employee would at least need to bring a cellphone, a pen and notebook set, the important documents for the meeting, a laptop, a wallet, and a flash drive.

These things may seem small, but if they were to be brought simultaneously in one go, the person carrying them would need a high-quality bag to contain them all. As a part of the organizing committee who would oversee the corporate giveaways, you may need to think about this carefully, a bag made of a strong, light weight material wouldn’t be too bad, especially as it would need to withstand the weight of the items being carried.

The Write Choices

NOVEMBER 2

For an employee, nothing is more important than a good pen and a notebook. Anything that would help them write down the takeaways from a meeting, anything that’ll help them remember the key points, anything that would remind them of appointments., Nothing would beat the retentive advantages of writing down information, an age old knowledge that has been proven from time and time again. In such case, if you happen to know someone whose job usually involves this type of activity, then you might be planning on going for a gift hunt, just to scout on the right writing tools and materials to present during the holidays. No worries, as we have come up with a list of suggestions to help you out in your search.

1.) A Ballpoint Pen

Yes, you’ve read that right, we specified the first one on the list as a ballpoint pen, and there’s a valuable reason why. We’ll get to that in a bit, but first, let us look into the importance of this specific pen. It is the most common choice when it comes to both students and employees. A few decades ago, pencils were a much preferred option, but due to the common phase of sharpening them after extensive use, people began to see the advantage of using a writing tool that doesn’t require you to wring repetitively each time the point dulls out. With ball pens, someone who needs to write immediately pull it out of their pockets, take out the cap, and proceed to take notes. Of course, more variety of ballpoint pens were made along the way, different colors and sizes were manufactured according to the needs of the people, and some were even sold in a set.

2.) A Notebook

What would writing materials be without notebooks? Yes, you may have bought your friend or co-worker a fancy-looking pen, but if they do not have any notebook then where are they going to jot down their notes? When it comes to notebooks, you actually have a lot of options. Some notebooks come with a hardcover, some notebooks come with the opposite, and some notebooks are either padded or quilted, either way, your main priority when selecting one as a gift would be the number of pages. If the recipient is one to write on a daily basis, then you’d need something that exceeds a hundred pages. Aside from that, you should also consider the quality, the thing about notebooks is that the paper quality affects the surface area, and a low quality paper may be easy to tear, something that could very well be an obstacle during extensive meetings, so you should choose wisely.

3.) Memo Pad Set

Now, here is something that the gift recipient may appreciate. A memo pad set is something so compact, yet so useful. They are basically useful during those times in which you’re being given very specific details, instructions, and information, and the only thing that you can do is to write them down and analyze them later. May it be for personal thoughts and ideas on the run, or particulars for or about your co-workers, family, and friends, a memo pad set is your go-to solution to preserve those details. Some of these details are even vital for daily activities, like a to-do list or reminders referring to scheduled appointments.

Gift Ideas On-the-Go

NOVEMBER 1
As an employer, one of the best things that you may give your employees this upcoming holiday season would be corporate giveaways. Not straying far from showing the spirit of giving, not only would these gifts act as a Yuletide gesture, it would also be considered a token of appreciation for all of the hard work that they have done during the whole year. Of course, it isn’t just about choosing a random item and then giving them straightaway after the Christmas party, but rather, presenting something that you’re sure they’d be most thankful for in the long run. “How may I accomplish this then?” you may ask. Simply put, by presenting them with something that they would be able to use on a daily basis. Office items which they can utilize to further their work, for example. Either that or you may provide them with a valuable work tool that would help them reach out to clients far better than before. In short, a gift that would amplify their skills, talent, and hard work tenfold. If your employees are the type to set up a meeting with potential clients and long-time business partners, choosing the right gift in the aforementioned manner would be very vital, which is why we had enumerated an appropriate list for you, for those driven employees who are always on-the-go.

1. An Elegant Wallet

Understandably, not all employees own a car. Whether it’s due to economic reasons or environmental ones, your hardworking employees aren’t always going to ride a comfortable air conditioned car. In such case, why not give them something that they may bring along in their travels? The fact that they’re usually outdoors for meeting, they may need to commute more often than not, hence, why an elegant wallet would be very practical and functional, holding in their fare money while comfortably sitting in their pockets. Wallets come in many shapes and sizes, though you should consider one which would match your employees fashion sense. The thing about wallets is that, they are not only mere containers for money, but rather, they are also considered a status symbol. Leather ones will always strike as a costlier adage rather than those which are made from other materials. And don’t even get us started on the metal finishes that some elegant wallets have, even going as far as to contain gold platings on the corners.

2. An Umbrella

We weren’t kidding when we said that this specific list would be for your employees who are always on-the-go. The Philippines has one of the most unpredictable weather patterns ever known to mankind. One minute you’re walking on sunshine, and then running towards a safety shed the next hour. Sudden rain and strong winds are a staple of the Philippine islands, an unavoidable indication of our tropical climate, hence, why employees should always be aware and ready when I comes to travelling outdoors. As their employer, they are your responsibility, and this is where umbrellas would come in. Not only would a nifty umbrella be a valuable tool to deflect the unwanted effects of the weather, it would also be a great opportunity to promote your company, as some umbrella manufacturers would allow you to customize and add in your logo, thus hitting two birds with one stone. Do keep in mind that the quality of the umbrella would also matter, as low standard materials would only flip the umbrella during strong winds.

3. Drawstring Bag

For a gift that screams on-the-go, this would be the perfect candidate. Bags are always a good thing to carry around, especially when your employees are usually assigned to attend outdoor meetings. Just think about it, with all of the stuff that they’d bring along for the ride, their pens and notebooks, their cellphones, their documents, their wallets, and even their tumblers, all of these wouldn’t fit in their coat pockets, let alone be practical enough to carry around by hand, hence, why a lightweight drawstring bag would be a great choice as a giveaway. Aside from the practicality of the design, you may also choose the colors that would match with the company motif, a sort of uniformed fashion statement, if you will. This would also serve as a way to show your clients and business partners that everyone in your company is united by a common goal of delivering exemplary service and great business, without sacrificing style and elegance.

A Mini Christmas: Pocket Gift Ideas for the Yuletide Season

Giveaways to Motivate

It’s not the size of the gift that matters, it would always be the thought that counts. This is true for the most part, as many of us are busy nowadays to even think up of a fairly sized gift for our loved ones, as a way to prepare for the upcoming holidays. In this case, any gift that involves glitz, glamor, and functionality would stand out the most, as long as it’s given straight from the heart. With this in mind, you might be trying to figure out what sort of gift would show your biggest appreciation towards them. Would ornaments suffice? Would the brand and model make up for the budget? Different questions, various gift ideas, and even lesser time to prepare (Christmas is just a 2 months away, after all). Well, set your worries aside as we’ve got you covered, with a few pocket-sized gifts that would really show your families, friends, workmates, and loved ones how much they mean to you.

1. A USB Drive

Modern problems require modern solutions. This gift really proves that big things comes in small packages. If the intended recipient is one to carry around huge data and important files for the whole duration of a work shift then this would be the perfect gift for them. Imagine all of the work reports, all of the contracts, all of the invoices, compiled and compressed into their soft copy versions. Ask around any student or employee, and they’ll tell you the very same thing – USBs are one of the most useful devices to ever graze a classroom and an office space. Of course, you’d have to avail high-quality ones, unless you want your recipient to have corrupted memory dilemmas all the time.

2. A Card Case

Out of all the things that your gift recipient may need, a card case may very well be one of it. This pocket-sized item wouldn’t only keep and organize all of their calling cards, it would also keep their ATM cards, valid IDs, and credit cards safe, especially during this modern era of financial scams. Some card cases even have a modified and enhanced casing, which keeps credit cards and ATM cash cards safe from RFID skimming devices. Of course, there are some who would prefer to avail a customized version for their loved ones, and there’s nothing wrong about that. By inquiring about the services offered by these card case shops, you may even get a wonderful deal, card case and customization packaged into one purchase.

3. Post-it

Another pocket-sized item that the intended recipient can use both at work or on-the-go. Let us tell you the significance of memo pads, first of all. While organizers and notebooks are the usual preferred items to write on during meetings, they are not really easy to carry around. Some hardcover versions of organizers are even heavy, and imagine carrying that around on a meeting-filled day. And let us not even get started on notebooks. Much like organizers, some of them are bulky enough to be called a paperweight. Another thing about notebooks is that they are meticulous to carry around, especially those which are not padded. To clarify, padded notebooks are those which ends are glued together, unlike those which are quilted. Most common notebooks are quilted and are a stubborn bunch, with the metal rounds in the end getting caught in fabric during crowded walks and elevator rides. Avoid the embarrassment and go for a memo pad. Easy to use, easy to carry around, and are practical to use, especially the ones which leaves are color coded (Post-it, in particular, have four main colors, pink, green, orange, and yellow). – avoid comparing item to notebooks and journals since these are also some of the items we offer.

4. A Ball Pen

What would a post-it be without a ball pen? You’d need something to write with, after all. A well-made ball pen would usually write on any form of page or surface, no problem. It’s the ink capacity that you will have to worry about. Here’s the thing about pens, the more you use them, the lesser their ink would be. In such case, a high quality pen would be a much better choice. Due to a) having a slower rate of ink blot, thus saving them in the long run, and b) and the well-made structure which would survive any accidental falls from your pockets. Some pens would even stop writing after a few falls, and they can be a real hassle, especially if you have a lot of pointers and reminders to write down after an important meeting.

Quick Christmas Gift Ideas for the Busy Entrepreneur

Water Bottle

For the busy entrepreneur, time is money, time is gold. Things are always fast-paced, everyone’s a connection, and all opportunities are open to challenges and success. Yes, determined employees are focused and driven, which is why trying to catch their attention, would be a difficult task. This difficulty is even more amplified if you consider the fact that they’re included in your Christmas list of people who have been nice to you all year and are deserving of a nice gift. It doesn’t seem problematic at first, but coming up with a gift for people who are always busy and on-the-go would greatly stretch your imagination to its fullest. Well, you’re in luck, as we’ve got just the right list for you, a plethora of Christmas gifts which would catch the attention of even the busiest person you’ve ever known.

1. A Wristwatch
This is one gift idea which we can all agree would be fit for any busy entrepreneur who loves to make the most out of their time. Being the most obvious choice in the list, it would be an injustice not to put it as the first one. Wristwatches are definitely useful, but not in the most specific reason that people give them credit for. Yes, they tell the time, the most obvious use of a watch, but others also use them as personal accessories. Most of the time, you’d see well-dressed corporate people walking around in lavish office halls, carrying their suitcases and swinging their arms as if they’re the CEO of the building, as if they’re the “man of the hour.” And, believe it or not, this actually works. Style is emanated from people who are confident about themselves and are confident about their fashion choices as well. You may find it hilarious and trivial, at best, but small things such as wristwatches can actually function as an elegant piece, a fashion statement.

2. Water Bottle
What do you give a person who is always on-the-go? Why, a handy water bottle, of course. Usually, corporate people are holed up in their comfortable offices, enjoying the soft, laid back office chair. Depending on their position and job description, employees would need to go out and travel towards a business partner to either provide progress reports or negotiate more deals. If your supposed gift recipient falls under the category of the latter, then, do them a favor and buy them this magnificent water bottle. The thing about travels is that they can really take a lot out of you. Energy, vigor, and sweat, you name it, employees on-the-go are exhausted by the end of the day due to constant travels, and every once in a while, they may need to rehydrate. This is where a nifty water bottle would come in handy. Of course, you also have to make sure that they get a proper amount of liquid each day. In that case, a Water Bottle would be a definite choice, featuring 1 Liter worth of liquid space.

3. A Powerbank
People on-the-go are mostly glued to their cellphones. If they’re not asking for directions towards the next destination for the day, they might be waiting for more text updates regarding the agenda of the upcoming meeting. And we all know what happens to smartphones with frequent use. Yup, the battery usually runs out! Good thing there are now such things as powerbanks. This has become a necessity nowadays. You may call it a device, an accessory to another device, etc. but one thing’s for sure, it’s definitely a life saver. If you ever consider gifting a powerbank, keep in mind that they come in different sizes, both literally and in terms of their mAh (milliampere hour). Bulky powerbanks are good if the recipient carries around a suitcase or bag to work every day. If they don’t, then you are better off giving them a smaller version and model. For the mAh (milliampere hour), basically it indicates the amount of energy stored in the powerbank itself. Know the type of cellphone that your gift recipient uses and how often they use their cellphones. These would important information, especially when you’re shopping for the right powerbank. Some of them come in 2,000 mAh, 3,000 mAh, etc. Feel free to ask the store personnel as well if you’re not sure about the type and model.

Elegant Corporate Gift Ideas for the Christmas Season

SEPT 1_ Elegant Corporate Gift Ideas for the Christmas Season_Revised
As an executive or owner of your own company, you might be wondering about the most appropriate gifts to give your employees this holiday season. While it may not be that much of a daunting task, you still want to show your employees that you care, that their efforts these past few months were greatly appreciated, and that they are some of the most valuable assets in your company. You try to think of a gift that maybe one or two of them may enjoy, but you definitely want to give them something that can generally be accepted with open arms and a warm appreciation. No worries, as we have prepared a few elegant gift ideas for the holidays:

1. A Simon Travel Bag and Luggage Essentials Set
During the holiday season, your employees may decide to take a leave. This is normal, especially for those hoping to have quality time with their families, away from the stress of work and the urban life. If this is the case then you might want to provide them with a useful item, something that can contain all of their belongings in one go. A Simon Travel Bag and Luggage Essentials Set would basically carry all of their stuff, from clothing to small socks, and even their travel essentials such as their documents and passports. It is a hand carry, so they’ll be able to keep it with them at all times, unless, of course, it gets too heavy.

2. A Slate Cheeseboard with Knives Set
Executives are very much like their regular employees, they also enjoy the simple things in life, like food for example. The manner in which they enjoy these things is what sets them apart, however. Regular employees would prefer to dine out in fast foods, while higher ups would choose restaurants. This is already a mere indication of what you can give the latter, especially this holiday season. A Slate Cheeseboard with Knives Set would be the perfect gift, as most formal dinners usually involve wine, steak, and cheese, and what better way to prepare and entertain these line up than with an elegant set.

3. A Grab Emergency Kit
No matter how cautious a person may be, he/she may still find himself in an accident. This may even happen during one’s vacation, which is why you should also consider giving your employees a Grab Emergency Kit. It is basically an emergency kit with a water bottle. Some may add a whistle, a Swiss Army knife, a compass, a few first aid ointments and band aids and some would even have a modern multi-purpose metal card the size of your typical driver’s license. Not only would your employees (who are about to embark on their Yuletide vacation) appreciate the gesture, they would also know that you care about their well-being, even when they’re thousands of miles away.

Corporate Giveaways that Your Employees May Use During their Holiday Trips

Must have items for rainy season

With the holiday season right around the corner, you might be thinking of the most appropriate gift ideas for your employees. You wouldn’t want your employees to think of work while they’re having quality time with their family. No, you would prefer for them to be well-rested, well-energized, and de-stressed during their short holiday vacation, which is why you should consider giving them something that may provide complete function and convenience during their trips. Here are just a few examples:
 
1. A Durable Customized Watch
Usually, vacationers would organize an itinerary in order for their trip to go smoothly. It’s just one way of making sure that no valuable time would be wasted during such a short vacation period. You can bet that your employees filing for a leave as early as now already has an itinerary up their sleeves. In such case, why not give them something that they can use along with their planners and holiday timetables. To ensure that they would never miss a flight, a durable watch would be the most appropriate company giveaway before or during the holidays. And take note, we mentioned the word “durable,” for your more adventurous employees who are looking to sky dive or rock climb during their vacation. Speaking of which.
 
2. A Custom Water Bottle
Help your employees stay rehydrated during their vacation. It doesn’t matter if they’ll be spending their Yuletide season in the warm climate of Boracay or the cold green lands of New Zealand, they’d be always on the move. And when they find themselves burning the calories during these travels, they might as well have a portable water bottle with them at all times. This is critical, especially for those who are looking to be involved in strenuous activities during the holidays, jet skiing, bob sledding, ice skating, and even the simplest act of swimming would require them to drink water every once in a while.
 
3.A Grab Emergency Kit
Accidents may occur anywhere at any time. Even the most cautious person may end up being involved in a sudden collision, thus rendering them in shock and distress. This may even happen during one’s vacation, which is why you should also consider giving your employees a Grab Emergency Kit. It is basically an emergency kit with a water bottle. Some may add a whistle, a Swiss Army knife, a compass, a few first aid ointments and band aids and some would even have a modern multi-purpose metal card the size of your typical driver’s license. Not only would your employees (who are about to embark on their Yuletide vacation) appreciate the gesture, they would also know that you care about their well-being, even when they’re thousands of miles away.
