REVIEW: The Versatile and Practical LED Pen
Marketing managers are constantly on the lookout for corporate gift ideas that effortlessly standout, are practical, and speak well of one’s brand. The smart, versatile and hybrid LED pen fits the description. This corporate gift item is worth adding into one’s marketing arsenal.
As the name suggests, the LED pen doubles as a pen on one end and a LED light on the other.
Lightweight and durable, it does the job of a handy tool that serves a variety of purposes.
As a pen, the LED pen glides smoothly on paper, allows for a comfortable, firm hold, and is small enough to be tucked inside a pocket or a folder. It can also fit nicely inside a purse or a small case.
As a LED light, it will surprise you how much illumination it can give. The light can be used as a reading light, as a probing light, or even as a search light for small areas.
Because of its dual purpose, the LED pen is a perfect travelling companion as well as a nifty tool that can be used every day in the office or at home.
As a marketing manager for a pharmaceutical company, my team and I were looking for ideas for meaningful corporate gifts to give doctors, nurses and other hospital staff members. Our considerations were that the gift should not be lavish, should promote ethical practice, and that it would be something the recipients would love to use.
We reviewed several corporate gifts ideas and suppliers and finally decided on LED pen for three reasons:
1. We were buying for over 1,000 doctors, nurses and hospital staff members and so one of the primary considerations was inevitably the price.
Of all corporate gifts ideas – including mugs, small towels, travel bags, etc. – only the LED pen delivered on the price. The LED pen offered the greatest value for money because it was relatively cheaper and yet it never failed to make our target recipients excited to receive it.
2. The LED pen is a versatile tool that can serve several purposes. Certainly, the pen can be used for signing prescriptions, taking notes, and the LED light can be used to conduct simple physical examination.
3. Paper weights, plush toys or pillows, and figurines are all good corporate gifts ideas, but let’s face it, most of the time these types of corporate gifts end up collecting dust. We chose the LED pen because of its practical uses. As our recipients use the LED pens every day, we’ve come to see how regular usage of the pen became a way of them remembering us.
After we decided that we were giving away LED pens, the next question that came up was “Where do we buy these LED pens?”
The answer was Personal Times Business Gift
Personal Times Business Gift is one of the leading online corporate gifts shops in the country. Being a pioneer in the corporate gifts business, it has expanded its product portfolio over the years. The company makes corporate gifts giving personal. I was impressed at how they spent time talking to me about what I desire to achieve from my corporate gift giving and I thought that was the best way to demonstrate personalisation. It’s the little touches that made my experience with them truly delightsome.
On a final note, you might ask, if the LED pens have a lot of great uses, could there be at least one drawback about it?
The answer is yes.
The design of this particular LED pen is so that the body can be snapped apart in the middle. The good news is, you can easily snap it back on. In fact, there really shouldn’t be any trouble for you on this design, because the pen won’t snap on its own unless you intentionally do so. In other words, leave the pen intact and it works just fine!
Over-all, the LED pen is still a great way to make corporate gifts giving personal at home and at work.
