The company I work for mailed me a cookie tin for my birthday. I have Celiac's so couldn't eat the cookies but instead made an awesome water heater for my chickens. The cookie tin has my firm's logo on it which I found humorous. I shared a pic of the finished product with my boss. He thought it was great, although is not planning on adding a chicken water heater to our promotional gifts. A free gift and an old busted lamp I found in our storage room. I'm not out a penny on this project!
Good story! Let's see a photo of it.
BTW, I think it's only fair if your company gets you a birthday gift that you can eat, wear, or spend — after all, how many water heaters can you use? Ha!
