Corporate Giveaways Buyers’ Show features gift ideas for businesses

Purple Tag

Apart from excellent service and products, nothing fosters the bond between businesses and clients like a well-thought-out gift during the holiday season. Lean times come and go, but it’s when the business climate is rough that companies need to show their clients appreciation. When better days come, clients will remember you.

This year is no different, as the Corporate Giveaways Annual Buyers’ Show on Business Gifts, Premiums, Promotional Ideas & Merchandise Incentives once again gathers a specialized group of exhibitors under one roof, as they have for 26 years in a row now.

Personal Finance for Couples

Managing finances — when you’re married or in a relationship — can get tricky.

There are working spouses who get by on a weekly allowance, after turning over their entire monthly salary to their partners. I’m a working wife but count me out of that arrangement. I believe in freedom and empowerment.

But if one partner is super organized and imposes a full turnover of funds because she (or he) thinks the other will spend it buying non-essentials, that’s another story. There’s also the matter of some people just being better at taking care of every peso earned.
