Awards & Fine Gifts, A Source of Unique Executive Gifts, A Finalist for Small Business of the Year
25 June 2012
Awards & Fine Gifts, a company that can provide customers with unique personalized executive gifts, including engraved crystal awards, was recently chosen as a finalist for the Naperville Area Chamber of Commerce Small Business of the Year Awards in the Business-to-Business category. According to John Robbins, owner and founder of Awards and Fine Gifts, some of his most rewarding accomplishments have been helping clients find the perfect gifts for their employees, volunteers, and customers – whether they're looking for lapel pins or custom-designed unusual gifts, such as a 3 ½-foot award shaped like a French fry! Robbins approaches each client as an individual and strives to find the perfect award for each one. "I'm usually the guy behind the scenes making sure the awards or gifts are perfect for the recognition. With gratitude and appreciation, my greatest satisfaction comes from giving, whether it's exceptional customer service or a unique, high-quality gift," said Robbins ( Committed to giving back to the community, he's constantly looking for ways to volunteer his time and services to local charities, including the YMCA. One summer, the local YMCA did not reach its goal in raising funds for its Strong Kids Campaign, and, because of this shortfall, the Y was unable to send a number of children to camp. Robbins stepped up and, for three days, he worked in a local jewelry store, funneling all of his commissions to the YMCA camp fund. "Our company believes we should give as we receive – happily, optimistically and without hesitation.” Highlighting the importance and motivational value of giving awards, Robbins explained, “There is nothing better than being rewarded and recognized for a job well done. We believe we're in the people business first, and our job is to connect our clients to the best solutions for creating memorable moments. If you're looking for a unique way to show your appreciation, let us help." Awards & Fine Gifts has been providing customers with unique executive gifts for more than 25 years.
