My team loved zip up track jackets. I use a company Yeti and water bottle all the time. 200 bucks, I’d take a Patagonia jacket. I like company gear given to me over money though because no way I’d use my own money for that. I think it’s fun to sport company gear..

Call me crazy but I actually like getting things client - related for certain projects. For instance, on aviation projects, when someone rolls off we give them a model plane of that client. For a waste company we gave out model garbage trucks; same thing for oil and gas. It's a fun way to collect the memories and make it unique.

This is simple, cheap swag but I love it and use so so much: a usb charger with multiple ends for micro usb, lighting, mini usb, etc. I can throw this in my bag every week instead of remembering 3 different cords. Genius!

Damn. This looks so much better than the crappy one we got in Australia.

Quality thermoses are also great- Yeti or Swells. I would avoid any color outside of black, white, silver, grey. They logo can be in brand colors but I do find I use things that are not loud. Classy pins, cuff links, and socks are also cool.

He is in his 50's and doesn't want to make a move unless there is some runway to keep working. He basically could work as long as he wants where he is at. The pay increase would be significant for him to jump to but if he is mandatorily forced out in a few years it might not be worth it.
