Gift-giving can be tricky, especially when you don’t really know the person you are buying for. Often in business settings, we don’t get the opportunity to see what our clients or business partners might like or dislike, which only adds an extra challenge in selecting the perfect gift. It’s hard enough to come up with gifts for those we do know well, let alone those we only know in a working capacity.

Drinking does wonders for the soul. It helps people take a load off and relax. It helps people reduce stress levels. It allows people to have fun when they’re over concerned with issues regarding work, family, friends, etc. But let’s be real here for a second: Alcoholism = BAD. However, according to a new set of studies, alcohol really does put the happy in happy hour…. In moderation of course.

Researchers from the University of Kent in the United Kingdom looked at how the relationship between happiness and drinking changes over time in two studies. In the first study, they used traditional survey methods, tracking how often they drank and changes in their mood in order to assess happiness levels and drinking habits of participants over a week-long period. In the second study, they used an innovative iPhone app to track moment-to-moment changes while the participants were enjoying happy hour.

So this holiday season, give your clients something to smile about.. Literally.

Leaving an Impression Starts with the Bottle Opener:

For many, beer is quite possibly the greatest creation on Earth. It improves our daily lives in just one sip. And with the holidays just around the corner, what better way to show clients you care than through beer? Because let’s be honest, beer is a great gift anytime of the year.

For beer lovers, the holidays mean an opportunity to get their hands on new toys to fuel their obsession. But don’t go beer shopping without some idea of what you’re looking for. With hundreds of labels staring back at you, there’s just too much going on to sort through it all.
