It’s certainly easy to shop for those you love this holiday season: you either know exactly what they want or they give you a curated wish list. But what isn’t as easy is giving to those you do not know. Today is Giving Tuesday, so consider this:
Find a non-profit or charity whose cause you support
Order custom logo knives and donate them to your charity of choice
There are many holidays where schools, students, and parents all join together to celebrate our nation’s teachers. We have National Teacher Day, National Teacher Appreciation Week, and even daily, teachers receive thoughtful gifts from their students. They are hard-working, caring, and put their students first.
But what about our substitute teachers who step in last-minute when needed? Today is their day: it’s Substitute Educator Day. These people do not usually have time to prepare, nor do they know the students that they will be instructing. These educators deserve a day of their own as well, so let’s celebrate them today.
Buy them some strong coffee to get them through the morning
Order them a yummy lunch
Make them a “thank-you” goodie bag with company logo knives with your school’s logo, plus other things to show your appreciation.
knife is intended for each person whose name is engraved on it. The reason for this statement is that some people want their logo on 100 knives, and they call that personalizing. It’s not really personalizing unless each knife has the name of each recipient on it.
If you want your logo engraved on 100 knives, it is more accurate to call that “engraving” or “logo-ing”.
Some traits and skills we are fortunate enough to be naturally born with. Many people are innately good with numbers, fine arts, or public speaking. But for those skills that we are not born with, we must train our brains to learn them. Today is National Train Your Brain Day- what will you choose to learn today?
What are the best qualities a neighbor can have? Trustworthy, considerate, and tidy are a few that come to my mind. How will your neighborhood celebrate Good Neighbor Day today? -Host a block party with food & music -Coordinate a neighborhood garage sale -Encourage your neighbors to support your business by passing out free company logo knives
Personalized Pocket Knives have your logo on them, so you can give them away and advertise your business at the same time. This is a great advertising idea, but here are some problems that can occur. Also the solutions and ways to prevent future problems.
Your knives did not arrive in time for your trade show. If the engraver promised a ship date, and failed to make it, then you deserve your money back. If however, he shipped on time, but UPS or Fedex took too long, then we are all victims of that situation. UPS currently doesn’t guarantee even a 2-day shipping method.
Your logo was engraved in the wrong location. You deserve your money back, or a discount on the knives. Or, the engraver can redo your order.
The knives are too big (or too small). The size of the knives is mentioned on the websites of all knife retailers. Next time, pay close attention to that. Sometimes the looks of a picture don’t convey the size of something.
The knives don’t look like the picture. The only time this can happen is when the handle material is natural wood or natural bone. Each knife handle can vary from each other and from the picture. If there is another variation, attributed to a misleading picture, then you deserve compensation.
So you like to keep a pocket knife on you at all times. It is handy to open packages, cut string and rope, and get someone out of a seat belt after an accident. When you fly on a commercial airline, what does TSA (Transportation Security Administration) have to say about your habit?
You may not have them in your carry-on bags. The final decision rests with the TSA officer on whether an item will be allowed past the checkpoint.
Since I sell pocket knives, one time I tested the system. When I travel by air, I like to take my fingernail clippers and toenail clippers. In the same shaving pouch I have a small inexpensive multi-knife. It has a small non-locking blade, scissors, and nail file. It is about 2″ closed. I normally put this shaving pouch in my checked bag. This time, I put it in my carry-on bag. Mainly because I was going on a short trip and didn’t need to use a checked bag. Surprise..I was able to go through the checkpoint. It worked that time, but who knows if TSA would allow this knife to pass every time.
What happens if you remember that you have an expensive knife in your pocket, and you are already in the TSA line? It’s too late to put it in your checked bag.
Get out of line and hide it somewhere in the airport, like a flower pot, above a ceiling tile, behind some furniture, or any other place you can think of.
Go outside and bury it in the ground.
On your return trip, your knife might be gone, but it might still be there. It’s better odds than forfeiting it to the TSA agent.
