On any list of traits an effective executive needs, great time management skills would have to rank near the top. The CEO has always got another meeting to get to, another plane to catch, another report to read. There just aren’t enough hours in the day. That’s one reason why a custom-engraved clock makes the perfect executive gift.

Gift Giving Superstitions
Before giving gifts, carefully consider the type of business you run and who is employed at your company. When dealing with international employees or business associates, , researching their cultural gift-giving norms is a must. The last thing you need in business is offending or miscommunicating with someone, which can put a strain on the relationship. Did you know that in many Asian countries, giving a clock or a watch as a gift is totally off-limits? For example, in China, clocks represent the quick passage of time and the word itself is close in pronunciation to the word for death. In other parts of the world, floral arrangements are an inappropriate gift. Since the flowers die within days, they are considered reminiscent of death or ending. Although a potted plant represents a growing relationship and more life. Definitely a thoughtful and widely accepted gift.
