Awards and gifts are both tokens of esteem. But while an award is something earned, a gift is more a spontaneous expression of gratitude and appreciation on the part of the giver. As such, it should embody the high value that’s placed on the team or person who’s receiving it. So it needs to be unique and noteworthy, to reflect the qualities for which it’s being awarded.
One way to achieve this is with a customized corporate gift. When a business or corporation gives a gift of gratitude to an esteemed or valued employee, the more uniquely personalized the employee gift choice is, the clearer the statement of appreciation. Inscribe the gift in a way that makes it meaningful to the recipient – perhaps by etching not only a company logo, but perhaps a well-known quote or saying, a sports team preference, a personal interest, or something else that holds a special significance for those getting the gift. This helps make clear that this is a reward for a particular individual or group, not a one-size-fits-all tribute.
Custom engraved gifts and awards make a personal connection that speaks to the significance 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 corporate awards space. The way we see it, a great business award recognizes excellence. Its quality and craftsmanship are not only a reflection of that greatness but also of the appreciation felt by the business or organization bestowing it.
Because the purpose of a corporate award is not just to recognize the already accomplished, 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 recognition award itself.
That is why we hold ourselves to such high standards. All eyes are on the unique and personalized 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 Executive Awards. We have been the leaders in executive awards ideas for the last 40 years.
