Virgil Winston: Marketing Guru

Father’s Day is coming up faster than a mother-in-law’s insult. Fortunately for all of you procrastinators, Rush Imprint has great gifts in a hurry. There are many ways to honor dear old dad—a nicely worded note, a heartfelt thank you and a warm hug are all appreciated but let’s face it, everybody loves presents. I know I owe my own father a lot—if not for his wisdom, vision and marketing acumen, I might not have become the marketing guru I am today. In honor of Dad’s special day, I have put together a list of alternatives to the usual neckties, handprint ashtrays and golf balls.

If your Pop would rather be in Vegas but can’t get away, bring Vegas (or Atlantic City or Monte Carlo) to him by gifting your gambling Dad with a Hand-held Casino Blackjack Game. This game may be small but it’s not short on fun. The exciting sound effects provide realistic casino action all in the palm of your hand. So, he can buy insurance, split aces, surrender, and double down without ever leaving home. The Cutter & Buck Money Clip Card Case is the perfect way to show dad the money. It secures loose bills and had a pocket for credit cards and notes. It even comes with its own gift box for those of you who are wrapping impaired. Finally, for the true businessman with an appreciation for the finer things, the Cutter & Buck American Classic Executive Address Book will help Dad keep track of important appointments, contacts, and tasks. It’s made of soft genuine top grain leather and accentuated by a stainless steel buckle that bears the Cutter & Buck insignia and features internal pockets for business cards, credit cards, and currency.

Well, I’m off to the races…literally. I put down two bucks on “Marketing Magic” to win. Remember, “Any man can be a father, but it takes a special person to be a dad.”
