Better To Give

Better To Give

The holiday season is coming faster than you think. This year, fully embrace your brand when picking gifts for your employees and colleagues. We’ve chatted with a few local retailers and execs for their best gift giving suggestions, and added a few of our own for good measure.

A Good Book

Who wouldn’t love a good read over the holidays? Give your employees the option to choose the book of their liking with a gift card to a local bookseller—we love Magers and Quinn—or an iBook gift card for those who can’t seem to put down their iPad. magersandquinn.com, itunes.com
A Night Out

Give your employees the gift of a night out at one of the Twin Cities’ best steakhouses. With Parasole’s holiday gift card push, for each $100 you spend you can get an extra $25 to keep for yourself (as if you needed an excuse). mannyssteakhouse.com
Sophisticated Stationery 

Even (maybe particularly) in this digital texting age, stationery makes a classy gift, particularly when you aren’t sure what to buy someone. Getting it personalized is even better. Paperista’s new flagship at 50th and France offers both personalized and ready-made papers; and we can’t get enough of Lunalux’s Minneapolitan prints.
