Board Appreciation Gifts

I need some ideas of gifts to give Board Members who are rotating off of our board of directors. Any ideas are helpful.

    We've done cutting boards for gifts too. I use a guy in Heber Springs. He has several different designs and he can do the Arkansas shape. His number is 501-206-9880.

    We give the standard pen engraved with their name and the association name. A friend told me to go to Vanness Pen Shop for a variety of prices.

    Depending upon your budget, I really like to give locally sourced Arkansas items like Miller's Mud Pottery from Dumas or a bowl or other item from James Hayes. There are TONS of wonderful Arkansas artists that offer great choices and perhaps something more personal and meaningful than a plaque or desk clock, etc. Below is a website that has several options.

    We gave bamboo cutting boards in the shape of Arkansas with our Logo laser-engraved. They were a huge hit.

      Where did you buy them or have them made?

    Derek, The cheapest and easiest thing is a "Presidential Citation" signed by the President recognizing them for their service. it can be done on Parchment type paper, in-house, with official sounding language. You can put it in a nice frame and present it at their last board meeting.
