Readers offer ideal gifts for industry pros from Kris Kringle and his subordinate Clauses
You’ve got just a few shopping days left. But don’t worry. If you’re scrambling for gift ideas, we can help.

“I have found that the most important part of gift giving as a corporate communicator is the personalized, handwritten note I write inside the holiday card for each client,” says Stephanie Grayson, a corporate communications professional. “Writing a personalized note is not simply about ‘leading by example’ as communicators; more importantly, it’s about taking that moment out of our busy schedules to express sincere holiday cheer and gratitude in a personal and genuine way.”

Sherry Gavanditti, PR and media specialist at Menorah Park Campus, suggests giving a “sweet note of thanks, a funny card, a magnet offering motivational words, a small organizer or calendar or a coffee mug.”
