Lewisville, TX (PressExposure) November 30, 2007 -- Business leaders looking for a gift idea, which is different from the usual coffee mug, to give to their customers or employees as a "thank you" should consider a business book. Although most business gifts are appreciated by the receiver, items such as candy, cookies, and other types of food baskets are quickly gone. If the purpose of the gift is a quick "thank you", then a mug or food may be enough. To say more, consider business books which not only provide a simple thank you but they can be educational or motivational as well.
To aid in professional growth, the best gift books will make the individual's job easier or improve how they work. Look for a book that meets a practical need in the business world today and everyday. One that helps the individual in their everyday work, such as managing meetings will be appreciated for months to come. Shirley Fine Lee has produced a book titled "R.A!R.A! A Meeting Wizard's Approach" (ISBN 1-4196-5367-9 available on Amazon.com). This book gives tips on planning, leading, and follow-through for meetings.
Although coffee mugs or food are a nice way to say thanks, one can get too many of these and little benefit. If the purpose is to do more than say thanks, a business book makes sense A business library of helpful books is always welcome. When business leaders are looking for a gift to give, they should remember everyone can appreciate a book which will help them to grow. When saying thanks with a book of improvement, the educational or motivational message is also received with gratitude by the customer or employee.
