Later this week is National Re-Gifting Day. It’s the Thursday before Christmas. Now’s the time to pass on that 10 year-old fruitcake that you received last year. Some gifts that are never re-gifted are Buck Knives.
Why? Who would ever part with a gift that has many uses? Opening boxes, cutting string, trimming twigs off a tree, stripping wire. Buck Knives have a universal appeal. Most of them are American Made. So, go through your storage spaces and find those gifts that would be better off in someone else’s closet. But never give up your Buck knives.
There seems to be some lingering effects from the Covid-19 lockdown of year
2020. In that year, production levels of many products decreased. This was caused by the reduction in the workforce due to “social distancing”. Other effects were a reduction in the availability of raw materials. Shipping materials and finished products from China suffered as well.
Currently, the production time for engraved Gerber knives is 15 or more business days. Normally the production time used to be 10 business days. This additional 5 days may not be too important in the month of July. But, when the Christmas rush begins in October, those additional 5 days could affect the Christmas deadline. Imagine having a company Christmas party, and the gift knives haven’t arrived yet. My advice is to plan ahead, so you don’t get caught with this sort of inventory problem.
Buck knives come in a price range from $22.50 to $199.99. If you are planning on rewarding your labor force this Christmas, how much should you expect to spend on their gifts? The more you spend, the bigger hero you will be. The most famous of the engraved Buck knives is the Buck 110 Folding Hunter Lockback Knife. It is sometimes on sale for $81.00 each. That includes your logo laser engraved on the blade or handle. It also includes a leather sheath and a gift box.
If your employees like to hunt, or just enjoy the camouflage style, the Buck Bantam BBW Camo Knife is the best choice. It is a very popular knife. Your company logo could be laser engraved on the front of the blade. You can also have the recipient’s name engraved on the back of the blade.
Make this Christmas festive-looking simply by using a fruit knife to carve and slice up oranges, apples, mangos, watermelons…..you name it. Don’t worry about making a mistake. You can eat your mistakes!
When you want to give useful gifts to your employees this Christmas, here are 4 company logo knives to consider.
To be remembered at Christmas dinner, you would want your corporate logo visible at the carving table of all your employees. This carving set would deliver your logo right along with the turkey or ham.
Do your employees like pocket knives? If they do, then they LOVE Buck Knives. With Christmas only 7 weeks away, your employees are wondering what you might give them this year. Will it be one of these fabulous Buck knives? Will you have your company logo laser engraved on the blade?
Take advantage of multiple imprint locations. Put your company logo on the handle, and a saying on the blade, like “Merry Christmas 2019”.
Packaging is important, because it is the first impression. Case knives have optional wooden boxes and metal cans, for that perfect presentation. See the genuine Case packaging.
“Personalization”. Many pocket knives can be engraved with the recipient’s first and last name. This adds more meaning to your special gift. Plus, if someone loses their gift knife, it will probably be returned to them.
Do you own a business? Do you have some employees that frown all the time? Do you have a lot of employees that seem unhappy? You can use engraved Leatherman tools to change those frowns into smiles. Here’s how:
Pick a holiday, like Christmas, Thanksgiving, or Halloween.
Or pick another reason to get everyone together, like a safety recognition program.
Order enough engraved Leatherman tools for everyone. Don’t worry about the price. They come in all price ranges. Remember, your investment will turn those frowns into smiles. What a nice reward for your efforts.
Have your company logo laser engraved on the tools, along with a phrase like “Employee Appreciation Award” or “Safety Award 2019”.
Pass these out at the meeting and watch the tide change! You will become a hero. Your employees will love you for your generosity.
