All you ladies must agree with me, men are the hardest people out there to shop for. My dearest husband is not only hard to shop for but a bit complicated. There have been times when I find something I think he might like but all I’d get out of him is a stare as if saying ‘are you kidding me?’
Ty is into golf and cigars. One time I got him this pretty cool magnetic golf toy thing that goes on your desk and you move the golfers hand and shoot the ball. He never used. I am pretty sure it is somewhere under the pile of his stuff that has invaded my laundry room.
But it all changed when I found out about Executive Gift Shoppe. I am being truly honest. Mister went through all the pages in their website looking for that special something for our review ( I am such a cool wife *cough, cough* that I gave him the opportunity of doing this review). He reminded me of a little boy at a toy store. He found so many things he liked: flasks, golf putters, business card holders, cigar accesories, to name a few. They also offer desk accessories, groomsmen gifts, etc and most of their items can be personalized!
So what’s Executive gift Shoppe’s story?
Executive Gift Shoppe started as a small personalized gift store in Nanuet, NY in 1999 catering to the wedding & corporate gift industry. We built our reputation by providing unique, engraved & personalized gifts at affordable prices. Over the years, we have added thousands of new products, may personalized and many that aren’t. One thing that hasn’t changed is our commitment to quality and, more importantly, our commitment to customer service.”
They take special care of what you buy. Ty, after an hour of so of browsing, chose a lighter and a cigar ash tray. When the package arrived each item came individually in their own box which was then wrapped in tissue paper.
I asked to have the lighter engraved with Ty’s name which, in my opinion, makes it look oh so cool. The ashtray did not come engraved (not all of their products can be personalized so keep that in mind).
The Ambiance lighter is so beautiful the only thing Ty did not like about it is that it is too light. Ty likes things to feel heavy when they are in his hand. He fears that somehow the lighter will fly off his hand and break. Still, he takes his lighter with him most of the times!
The Ashtray has a black satin finish with contrasting silver accents which match his office perfectly! He rarely smokes in the house (in the patio, he is in no way allowed to smoke inside the house) but I am sure he has used it at least once and he really likes it.
Make sure to pay them a visit and check their other products out. You might find that perfect gift. And remember to keep an eye out for any stocking stuffer potentials! I am so into stocking stuffers lately!
