The Perfect Last Minute Corporate Gift | Corban & Blair
Everything is in place for next week’s visit by the potential clients/the key stakeholders/the board.
At least you thought it was.
Five minutes ago your CEO/MD/GM shot you an email. Great news that everything is on track for the meetings, lunch and site visit. But…
They know you asked before about providing a corporate gift for the seven people coming. And it seemed like overkill at the time.
But now it seems like a good idea. It’s worth going above and beyond. They’d like you to find a gift that’s different. Something unique. That’s right, by next Wednesday.
This is the kind of scenario that’s challenging on the best of days and you may not be having the best of days. It calls for a clever solution. And that’s just the kind of thing Corban & Blair loves doing. We’ve been creating beautiful and clever products for 30 years now. And we’re not stopping.
We love making corporate gifts that are authentic and real.
We’re interested in sustainability, in showcasing Australia through what we do and in creating beautiful objects that are genuinely valued by the people who receive them because they’re useful and clever.
So, our solution for the PA who has to come up with the unique-gift-in-a-hurry is to monogram one of our beautiful leather card holders, luggage tags or travel wallets with the initials of the recipients.
We’ll get onto it pronto and if it’s just a few pieces and we have the items in stock, we will turn them around to be shipped next day. Most places can’t manage that.
The point is, we’ll work with an EA who’s been put on the spot to try and meet their needs. If it’s more complicated, we’ll also work with them to come up with something more special.
There’s a trend for individuality and unique, useful items that won’t be wasted. Monogramming leather goods that feel good to use ticks that box.
