No, not The OC, though I must admit I never missed an episode. The real Orange County. When I was a little younger, I used to enjoy some of the greatest shows of my life at The Chain Reaction. Now, I am much more appreciative of the county’s beautiful residences, thriving business structure, and great shopping. Of course, however, I will never be too old for Disney.
Orange County is home to many of the country’s most noteworthy businesses such as Ingram Micro, Quicksilver, Linksys, Mitsubishi, Oakley, and Activision. The list goes on, but the point is clear. Business thrives here.
Shopping is stellar too, with South Coast Plaza, Fashion Plaza, and Brea Mall at the residents’ pleasurable disposal. The county really benefits from shopping probably as accessible as that in London. The school system is among the best; attractions are ample; what more could one want?
If you are a happy, hard-working Orange County resident, you may come to a point when you would like to show your appreciation for your fellow co-workers. In a city with such booming business, buying executive gifts is simply common place. How can you possibly stand out from the crowd? The foremost two methods are as follows:
- Make it personal. In the business word, it is so easy for things to feel mundane and impersonal. The aforementioned businesses have an unbelievable number of employees. If you know the recipient well, try to find a gift that will fit into their hobbies. Cigar accessories, wine accessories, flasks, etc are all great gifts which are small, simple, and personal if chosen wisely.
- Get it personalized. No matter the gift, if it says their name on it, it’s already ten-times more personalized. Put that together with method number one, and you are looking at some awesome executive gifts. Work gifts such as personalized pens and pencils, personalized leather desk sets, personalized clocks, personalized book ends, personalized picture frames and photo albums, and personalized business card holders are all perfect executive gifts that are sure to be appreciated.
As a bonus tip, think about upcoming occasions. Valentine’s Day is coming up; Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, anniversaries, weddings, and birthdays are all occasions where the above tips should help as well.
Enjoy your day, especially if you are in the great Orange County. Once the recent storms fully subside the weather will return to paradise. I’m patiently waiting.
