Corporate Gift Ideas

Im running a sales contest with a customer and am looking for ideas for the winner.

All men between 35-45 years old.
Located in WI-west side of the state
$300 value
Smaller is better since I may have to mail it

Ideas I have so far:
Digital Camera
Portable GPS
WI Dells over night stay
Steaks
Lobsters

Other ideas?

people like ipods. even if they already have one, they have kids, or friends, or family that would like it. It's a common corporate gift.

Get the paper ones from the Federal Reserve.. there are plenty of locations all around that you can insert a piece of plastic into and it will spit them out.

They rock.

nice idea but they live through out the state
cash lacks pizzazz. Silly as it sounds it also doesnt motivate these guys. Unique gifts do. I have a feeling the $$ goes to the wives or into the family funds and they are looking for something for themselves.

Only if they're dumb enough to tell her about it

Meet half way.. $300 in GAS cards

Everyone uses it, even if they already have one, they'll use it.

if they are all golfers, a snazzy new driver could be a consideration. Those can run $300 plus easily...

outside of sports suggestions, camcorders can be had for around $300, so can nice radar detectors (if these guys travel)

TiVO with a years service perhaps?

GPS, everyone drives and can use one. Golf stuff is cool but for those who do not play it would be wasted. Digital camera are something almost everyone already has.

Yeah, my suggestion is assuming everyone plays golf. If not, yeah, it would kind of be a waste.

I have won many sales spiffs in the past. The best ones are cash or amex gift cards. If you choose a gift only half of the people like the other half won't try that hard for it. Everyone likes cash.
