Corporate Gifts of Prestige and Precision

An award is more than just a plaque. Like a gift, it is a reflection of the appreciation for the act or person it congratulates. Give your best with corporate gifts that convey the value and professionalism the recipient deserves.

Such appreciation is best when it’s personal. When a business or corporation gives a gift of gratitude to an esteemed or valued employee, the more uniquely tailored the gift is, the better the statement of appreciation. It needs to be customized, portraying not only company logos, but even well known sayings, sports team preferences, personal interests to personalize the award to the recipient.

Custom engraved gifts and awards create a personal impression that speaks to the specialness of the occasion. Each of our awards or business gifts is either machine engraved, or upon special request, personally hand engraved by our master artisan Tony Gilson. Special designs, logos, sayings and personalization are available upon request.

A Tradition of Excellence

Ever since our founder Tony Gilson, opened his first store in Downtown Cincinnati in the Dixie Terminal Building in 1974, we have strived to produce every piece we create with precision, quality and craftsmanship you don’t often see in the awards space. The way we see it is a great award recognizes excellence. Its quality and craftsmanship is not only a reflection of that greatness but the appreciation of the business or organization that is recognizing it in the first place.

Because the purpose of an award is not just to recognize the already accomplished ac, it is to inspire the next success. It benefits not only the receiver but the entire team that then strives to follow in the footsteps of excellence and achieve the next level of greatness. It is a self-perpetuating cycle. Greatness bestows beauty, which then strives for greatness and so on. And that inspiration is directly connected to the quality of the award itself.

That is why we hold ourselves to such high standards. All eyes are on the award. It represents not only that moment of success but the spirit of the organization and the camaraderie of the team. Give the very best with Gilson’s at We have been the leaders in executive awards ideas for the last 40 years.
