A More Pleasant Summer…

image of bambooLifehacker recently posted a great Top 10 Outdoor Tips for a More Pleasant Summer list, chock full of great links on everything from how to shape the perfect burger to how to build a wood-burning hot tub for your backyard (if you have a backyard, which we don’t).

What better gift for clients, customers or hard-working staff than something to increase the pleasure quotient of their summers!

With that in mind, for each of the next ten days over the next few weeks, we’ll pair suggestions of our own with each of Lifehacker’s ten tips.


Tip #10 : Master the Art of Grilling
How about a sturdy yet pliable spatula with which to flip your burgers, and a nice long apron to keep those crackling burgers or steaks from staining your new madras shorts (or your oldest pair of jeans). You might also want to think about an all-in-one picnic set, complete with compartments for wine and salt shaker!

Tip #5: Give the Gift of Giving

During hard times, charities and nonprofit organizations like the Red Cross suffer most. Why not give a gift in someone else’s name, or allow them to choose one for themselves?

Branding on a Budget: Tip #1

It’s that time of the year and with the economy on the downturn, Branding Ideas has decided to compile a list of tips for being creative and economical this holiday season. Each week we’ll unveil a new tip so check back regularly!

Tip #1: Brand Smart, Not Cheap

Just because your resources are limited, that doesn’t mean you can’t be smart when gift-giving this holiday season. Extend your brand by making a long-term investment – a 12-month promotional calendar with your brand on it will keep you on your clients and colleagues’ radars a lot longer than a fruitcake.
