Each holiday season, people scramble to find the perfect gift – and finding the perfect gift for a business owner can provide some unique challenges. One of the main challenges is trying to find a gift that is unique, thoughtful, and a mix of business and personal interest, without leaning too much towards either. Business owners put their heart and soul into their business, and having a gift thoughtful enough to recognize that will make them smile for years to come. Below are our tips for finding a unique and thoughtful gift for the business owner in your life.
How to Choose a Unique Gift
When giving a gift, it’s important to consider the recipient. First and foremost, listen carefully to their preferences about gifts they want or don’t want. Outside of that, a great question to ask yourself is, “What would they appreciate but never buy for themselves?” For some, that could mean a more expensive-than-usual bag of specialty coffee – for others, it could be some new pens.
Unique and Personalized Gift Ideas for Business Owners
Personalized gifts stand out and show that you have taken the time and effort to select something unique, which is always appreciated. Whether it’s a custom-made item or something that aligns with their business values, personalization adds a special touch. When selecting a gift for the business owner in your life, consider these unique options:
- Customized office decor, such as personalized desk accessories or an engraved picture frame.
- High-quality writing instruments, like a fountain pen.
- A personalized mug with a bag or pods of their favorite coffee or tea.
- Tech gadgets that enhance productivity, like noise-canceling headphones or a smart speaker.
- Subscriptions such as audiobooks, e-books, or podcasts.
- Personalized business stationery, such as letterheads or notepads.
- Ergonomic or stress-relief items like a high-end office chair or a desktop Zen Garden.
However, when choosing a truly unique gift for a business owner, stained glass is an exceptional choice.
What Makes Stained Glass A Great Gift for Business Owners?
Sometimes, opting for a unique gift can be a gamble – not with stained glass. Amidst the sea of gift cards, bath soaps, and hastily bought treats, stained glass shines as a unique, thoughtful, and mesmerizing gift.
These pieces can be designed to reflect the business and its ethos, the business owner’s personality, or to monumentalize the business. Examples include a piece featuring the year the business was founded, the storefront, or the numeric address of the business. These pieces can be displayed in the business, home, or home office, adding charm and character.
Stained glass is more than just a decorative piece; it’s an investment that can be passed down through generations. Plus, the ability to repair and restore older pieces means that your gift could last for generations, becoming a treasured family heirloom.
