Short Cuts:
On the SpotWhat is the best giveaway you’ve presented at a company party?

“At a staff holiday party, we gave away a crisp $100 bill, but the winner had to spend it within the next 60 minutes and was not allowed to go straight to a bar. After the initial shock, the winner left the building and disappeared into the night. When he came back, he had to show the rest of us what he had purchased.”

“Signed Tiger Woods golf balls have proven to be the best giveaway in recent years. In fact, they’re almost becoming impossible to find. Any piece of sports memorabilia is a big hit, mainly because it is something most people do not have. The main problem at such events is finding fresh, interesting ideas.”

“We’ve given away many things as presents, but we still find that the best gifts, the items guests are most thrilled to have, are instant, digital photographs attractively presented in engraved frames. Caricatures of guests are a close second.”
