The ideal business gift seals a business relationship without burdening the balance sheet.




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.

Six Jewelry Gift Ideas for Business Clients


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

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

(212) 685-5308 |


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

(626) 357-9999 |



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


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

(866) 999-5283 |


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

Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
