Why Choose Us?

Why shop with Executiveawards.com by Gilson’s? It’s really quite simple.

Locally Owned and Operated

Gilson’s Executive Awards was founded by Tony Gilson in 1974 in downtown Cincinnati. That means we have almost 50 years of experience in creating unique corporate gifts and awards for the people and businesses of Ohio and beyond. We may have grown – we ship trophies and plaques all across the country now – but we haven’t forgotten our roots. When you buy from Gilson’s, you’re supporting real people on a local level, and we always make sure you’re treated like an important individual as well.

Quick Turnaround, Quality Products

Executiveawards.com has a rapid turnaround policy. Simple engraving can take us as little as one day to complete and ship back out, because all our engraving is done in-house. Most products need at least one stage of proofing to make sure you’re getting exactly what you want, but even given this requirement, if you need something now, we’re here to help.

We also understand that orders for gifts and recognition items can be highly personal and detailed. So we want to give you all the options you need to make sure you get the perfect piece, instead of using a cookie cutter order form that doesn’t give you nearly as much choice. You can work one-on-one with a professional to design and create exactly the piece(s) you need. And you never have to worry about the quality of your order, whether it’s a trophy, award or gift, because we are just as meticulous about our materials as we are about creating our pieces.

Hand Engraving – an Elegant Option

We offer hand engraving, one of the most beautiful and long-lasting styles of engraving for sterling silver, pewter and other metals. Tony Gilson, our hand engraver, is a masterful artist who can transform any award item into a paragon of excellence.

We pride ourselves on quality products here at Executiveawards.com. We hold ourselves to a higher standard than other big companies that might sell products that are not as long lasting. That’s because we are treat each order as a unique priority, as if we were the ones presenting it to the recipient, and you’ll see that passion in our customer service and our products.

Call us during business hours, or email at any time, and you will get hands-on personal attention from our dedicated department of corporate sales. You will get a real person every time you call, and the most helpful and friendly assistance with your order, no matter how big or small.
