Marlboro's Birthday Gift to a Non-Smoker

Motivators' director of operations and customer care, Tony, has never smoked a cigarette in his life. And yet yesterday he received a promotional birthday gift from none other than Marlboro, the largest selling brand of cigarettes on the globe. Check it out:

 

As you can see, the ashtray came in a rustic-looking tin box. A small piece of paper reads "Happy birthday from Marlboro," and, of course, features the brand's logo. Best of all, Marlboro actually customized the ashtray with Tony's initials. Talk about a personalized gift!

I don't condone smoking and I certainly don't want Tony to start just because he got a cool gift. But the unique promotional product is still worth mentioning.

I just received a personalized birthday ashtray in the tin box gift 8 days before my birthday and hate to mess it up with ashes, so I am going to keep it as a collectible.  I have been smoking Marlboro and other Phillip Morris smokes since I was 14 and the older I get, I started going with their cheaper brands because the Marlboro burns just like the rest and cost 4 times more money.  I agree, the initials on the ashtray from Marlboro is one awesome gift, especially the tin box the ashtray came in.

It really makes a great gift, and helps Marlboro stand out against the competition! Thanks for your comment, Michele.

I also received this ashtray from them! My birthday is 4/20 and I received it 4/15. Also with my initials, very cool. Last year I received a bottle opener for my basement wall. Also with my initials engraved on it. Pretty awesome that the company does this!
