Giving someone a photo of just your (admittedly handsome) self as a gift would be a joke.
But people at exhibition stands give me pens with their own name on all the time.
Pens are cheap and easy. A pen is inclusive to all. Everyone might need one, therefore no one does. They’re everywhere. And ironically, people who truly care about pens will be the least interested.
A better gift is something riskier. Something that most people won’t want, but that a few will find absolutely fascinating.
Whether it’s merch or a whole business concept – give people something that they find remarkable, indispensable or personalised to them – not yourself.
