GIVING GIFTS to clients and business associates requires a delicate balance. The ideal present is friendly, but not too personal — functional, but not dull. Any of these options will be a memorable way to seal a business relationship, and without burdening the balance sheet.

1. SWAROVSKI

CATEGORY: USB crystalline memory stick

TELL ’EM THIS: It’s always a treat to take something utilitarian and give it a sense of fun. These portable, bedazzled USB sticks hold tons of data, but are as much fun as a frivolous accessory.

WHO’S IT FOR: Sparkle aficionados

MSRP: $59 each

2. NATICO ORIGINALS

CATEGORY: Matte silver decision maker

TELL ’EM THIS: Think of this little gadget as the contemporary answer to the Magic 8 Ball. It’s a fun desktop toy for moments when it’s tough to figure out what to do. Spin the dial and it will offer advice with options like, “pass the buck” or “sit on it.”

WHO’S IT FOR: Indecisive associates

MSRP: $25

3. SWEDA USA

CATEGORY: Mini digital photo frame

TELL ’EM THIS: Sure, a smartphone holds hundreds of pictures — that doesn’t stop anyone from wanting photos of friends and family on display. This digital frame can display up to 30 images. You can add your logo to the front of the frame, too.

WHO’S IT FOR: Photo gazers

MSRP: $29.99

4. EXUVIUS

CATEGORY: Titanium multi-tool collar stays

TELL ’EM THIS: MacGyver would have had a field day with these collar stays. Yes, they keep a collar upright, but they’re also tools that can open a bottle, turn a screw or cut a thread.

WHO’S IT FOR: Well dressed adventure seekers

MSRP: $50

5. KATE SPADE

CATEGORY: Silver-plated business card holder

TELL ’EM THIS: It’s a digital world, but every businessperson still carries cards. An elegant case to store them is preferable to rummaging through pockets to find one. A cheeky engraving that reads “let’s do lunch,” shows a sense of humor.

WHO’S IT FOR: A polished pro

MSRP: $20

6. A GIFT PERSONALIZED

CATEGORY: Carbon fiber rollerball pen

TELL ’EM THIS: Stumped for what to give? No one will ever be disappointed by a well-appointed pen. It’s composed of ultra light carbon fiber, so that it’s not a chore to carry around. Engrave the recipient’s name so it doesn’t feel nondescript.

WHO’S IT FOR: Anyone. It’s a one size fits all solution.

MSRP: $25.99

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
