WE HAVE A WINNER! Thank you to everyone who entered our little contest via Twitter and the blog comments. You made us laugh and shake our heads. Plastic frog? Folding pens? Who thinks of these things? But the prize goes to Amber who wrote:
"A 6" chunk of a wood 2x4. Yep, I got it in the mail too! Not only did they waste the wood, but they paid postage to send it to me. But, not to worry, I used it in a campfire! Looking forward to some practical business gifts from LE!"
Thanks for the entry, Amber! We're turning your piece of firewood into a $50 gift card.
It's there on your desk. Quietly mocking you. The smiling fingertip puppet from the team offsite. Or maybe a glitter pen stuffed in your last conference registration bag. Some of you even have a drawer full of these things to be forgotten until you move cubes (or companies). Fess up: what’s the worst promo product (aka tchotchke) you’re still holding?
In early August, you'll have access to a host of more tasteful, professional and useful items perfect for employee or client giveaways from Lands' End. But in the meantime, that tacky one might just pay off for you.
Between now and Friday July 24, 2009, tell us about the worst giveaway product you've ever received and you'll be entered to win a $50 Lands' End gift card.
You can enter in a few simple ways:
- Follow us on Twitter and tweet your entry. You must include #lamegift in your tweet to be entered. Feeling crafty? Post a pic of the product on TwitPic.
- Post a comment below. Tell us your story in the comments section on this blog and you'll be entered as well. Feel free to post a link to your own blog or a link to a picture as well.
UPDATE: As this is all in fun, please do not include specific names of companies in your tweet or comment. Thanks!
