The Leather Portfolio: A Classy Gift

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Imagine two office workers at a meeting. One has to scramble around,
scribbling comments on sticky notes or scrap paper. The other comes
prepared with a notepad and pen encased in a sleek leather portfolio.
Who's getting points for looking organized, even before the first note
is taken?

For many others, it's time to graduate from plastic binders that look
like they've weathered a year at school to the more executive look of
leather. This shows they're ready to fit in to the highest level
meetings and make a strong contribution.

If you have some professionals on your gift-giving list, think of
enhancing their look with a leather portfolio. Portfolios bridge the
accessory arena between the notepad and the briefcase. Made to look
neat and to tuck under your arm when walking, portfolios generally
include a notepad, some pockets, and a place to stash a pen. From
there, the variety of features is endless. Portfolios range from the
very slim to almost the size of a carrying case.

When it's time to get organized, few things make a better impression
than the smooth elegance of leather. You can help the professionals in
your life make that strong first impression with this distinctive gift
in a wide variety of styles.

For the New Executive
When you've just moved from middle management to executive level, the
first thing you want to do is upgrade all your accessories to reflect
your new status. Give the new executive a sleek portfolio for business
meetings. Don=92t make it too clunky=97it needs to make the executive look
managerial rather than down in the trenches. Features to look for:
space to place a pad of paper, a pen loop, and an inside pocket for
handouts or business cards.

For the Graduate
The graduate taking his or her first job is generally woefully under-
accessorized. You may have trouble convincing them to wear a leather
belt, let alone gather business accessories. However, their first day
on the job makes an indelible impression. Sending them along with a
leather portfolio that includes pockets for cell phones, paper, pens,
business cards, file folders
