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 5 standouts will make a memorable impression on your clients and employees long after the holiday season has passed.
Lili Bermuda Perfume
Hawaiian Sea Salt
Traditionally Hawaiian Salt was used in ceremonial blessing and even today, a gift of salt is a symbol of good luck. The sampler pack, which includes three two-ounce glass bottles of ‘Alaea, Kona and Uahi salts, was a nice surprise for attendees during a recent FICP luncheon. $23.95 retail.
We thought an umbrella was just…an umbrella—until we discovered Blunt. They are designed in New Zealand and made to withstand the most turbulent weather (each prototype is actually tested in wind tunnels and on the hills of Auckland). Their look, sans sharp edges, is unquestionably unique. Prices depend on the style; the basic black Metro is $60 retail.
Diane Katzman Jewelry
Diane Katzman‘s custom art bracelets are truly a treasure, and she includes complementary artist cards with your corporate message. There’s no minimum on the beaded pieces, which are made in the U.S. in her St. Louis studio. She is also has won multiple awards in the promotional products industry for her custom-designed and hand-cast logoed jewelry. Prices vary.
Stash Essential Case
These leather pouches were the hit of the party when we gave them to attendees during the opening reception of our Houston Summit in May. They’re made of buttery leather, can be folded over to create a clutch and are available in a variety of colors from Stash, a Houston boutique that specializes in handcrafted artisan leather goods. $99 retail.
