When it comes to the holiday season, every one seems busier and busier as the end of December approaches. By mid December, that precarious time for holiday shipments to arrive on time, buyers are in a rush to just click on the button and pay now to get it shipped in time without having to pay outrageous fees. When it comes to presents that can really keep them remebering you throughout the year and a good gift to keep the receiver comfortable all year, why not consider an ergonomic office chair.
I gave my friend an office chair for Christmas just last year. I have been selling office furniture for years now and had an extra traditional leather bankers office chair sitting in the box, brand new in the back form a return. The customer had not liked the burgundy color once it arrived and at Sit On This Ergonomics, my eBay Store, we feature a 15-day guarantee, so hence I have chairs from time to time just sitting around the office or even my garage if space seems limited. Suddenly, it seemed the perfect gift when I heard him mention the need for one.
He had been complaining about having re-organized his office workspace including painting, buying a new desk and new wall hangings and carpet. It all looked so nice and professional, but of course he had failed to order a new office chair and his old shabby task chair looked about 10 times worse with all of the fresh style all around. Christmas was only weeks away and needless to say, I have no patience and I arrived at his doorstep in a couple of days with a bow and a new chair and well, I won’t mention where I put the bow or how “good” of friends we were at the time but he did enjoy that chair.
The point of this silly story is that for weeks if not months I got calls from him from the office exclaiming how comfortable he was and how happy he was with his new chair. He is a larger sized man, over 6 feet tall and has always had trouble finding an office chair to fit his height. The model of chair that I had given him had a tall cylinder and was similar in design to those that you would see featured in a typical Hollywood film when viewing the Oval Office of the White House or an executive office suite full of lawyers. A traditional leather chair with button tufting, pillow top and wood arms and casters, this chair was large and built to last. And it fit his body frame and type well, and the style of his new office interior, how could I go wrong?
I had given a ton of gifts that Christmas and yet this one in particular was the one that I heard about not only the most times but also for quite a long time. It is nice when giving of yourself, especially during the holiday season when it seems necessary no matter what to give, to find that the person who has received your gift has appreciated the thought and found enjoyment. Finding the right present for that hard to buy relative or office employee can be no harder than finding the right office chair to order online and have shipped directly to the office where the person has the most need. With how easy it can be and with all of the deals online and office chair sellers on sites such as eBay, it is time to start finding the right office chair for your gift recipient.
