The editors at Prevue are in an enviable position to evaluate holiday gift ideas, between choosing amenities for our own Visionary Summits and sampling the many creative gifts at meeting industry events.
These gifts and experiences will impress your clients and employees long after the holiday season has passed.
During the amenity experience at the Incentive Research Foundation’s Annual Invitational had a chance to choose between Tiffany jewelry and four red or white glasses, and the glasses were quite the hot ticket! This elegant all-purpose white wine glass of handmade, mouth-blown crystal glass is 13 ounces and will make just the right impression.
The ultimate gift for spa lovers? A weekend getaway to Sparkling Hill Resort near Lake Okanagan in British Columbia, conceived and created by Gernot Langes-Swarovski, patriarch of the famous crystal empire. In addition to its Cryo Chamber, popular in Europe, the spa’s signature treatments include, of course, a crystal scrub. Or relax by the crystal fireplace, toasty and warm as the snow blankets the peaks outside. We were introduced to the one-of-a kind spa resort during Incentive Canada and couldn’t imagine a more elegant getaway gift.
Our room amenity during Prevue’s Chicago Summit was the locally made Garrett’s Popcorn, which serves up a variety of holiday gift packages, including the “Together Town Bundle” with one classic tin of Garrett Mix and one petite tin of Hot Cocoa CaramelCrisp Mix. In addition to being delicious, it’s gluten free and preservative free with non-GMO kernels.
Flavours of Langham
Prevue held its Global Meeting Planning Summit at the Langham Huntington Pasadena in August, and attendees left with lovely gifts from its on-site store, Flavours of Langham. These same gifts are available online, from this ginger flower candle made from soya wax, to organic baby bibs to silk ties. All in Langham’s signature pink, of course.
Give sunglasses that give back! Each pair of Tom’s sunglasses helps restore sight to an individual through sight-saving surgery, prescription glasses or medical treatment. Prevue’s conference partner, International Gifting Company, offers a Tom’s sunglass amenity experience, among many others with a give-back component.
