Ah, the holidays are upon us and that can mean just one thing…gift buying STRESS! Well, when it comes to buying for that finicky FM on your list, we’re here to help.
As a member of the marketing department here at FacilityONE Technologies, I’ve certainly had to ponder what FM’s and facility operations managers might want to find under the ole office Christmas tree. Thankfully, I don’t have to go it alone since I’m surrounded by a creative staff and former FM’s, operations workers and folks who’ve spent a lifetime working in the trades.
Below are a few budget-friendly ideas that may be just what the FM on your list would love to receive this holiday season:
1: Robot Fidget Cube: ($6.75 ) Okay, I know…It’s a toy. Trust me, when you pick this thing up you just can’t put it down! The way it feels, the way it snaps and clicks! Think “Rock’em Sock’em Robots” and “Lincoln Logs” speed dated and had a baby. There’s no better way to spend morning conference calls than with a cup of strong coffee and one of these desktop toys! Go ahead, get one for yourself. https://bit.ly/2QxWVdN
2: Moleskine Notebook: ($25) Ready for something classy, meaningful and leather? This reliable travel companion is perfect for calculations, facility ideas and passing notes to remind co-workers of the bosses birthday. It has a cardboard bound cover with rounded corners, acid-free paper, a bookmark, an elastic closure and an expandable inner pocket that contains the Moleskine history (because you gotta have something to read when nature calls). https://bit.ly/2CmkSws
3: Light Switch Cover Plate: ($40) Make an office as unique as the FM you’re buying for with this Steampunk / Industrial-style light switch cover, featuring center cutouts. Because it is made from 1/4 inch raw steel (which is awesome), it provides an authentic Industrial look. Just flip the metal levers to turn your lights on and off! https://etsy.me/2EkjdIo
