  • Promotional Edible Gifts for the Holidays

    Promotional Edible Gifts for the HolidaysTis' the season when company offices become flooded with holiday gifts and goodies from clients, business associates and vendors, particularly those hoping to develop a business relationship in the New Year. Many companies consider the holiday season the culmination of their annual marketing campaigns, a time to show gratitude for customers, patronage throughout the year and to create a sense of goodwill going into the New Year.

    Edible treats are part of nearly all holiday celebrations, and often a popular choice for corporate holiday gifts because of the warm fuzzy feelings they bring when people gather around to share a taste; of the holiday spirit. With so many delectable goodies to choose from, it is easy to find something to satisfy everyone's taste; but to do so in a way that is both memorable and delicious can sometimes prove to be more difficult.

    In order to maximize the impact of your holiday marketing budget, you need to make sure your company's offering in the smorgasbord of holiday goodies stands out from the competition. As in any good branding strategy, it is important to have the company name and/or logo positioned in a prominent location. Our corporate gift experts can help your business create a perfectly branded assortment of edible gifts that will make your company sparkle this holiday season! Examples may include candy such as buttered toffee, chocolates or peppermint bark, or other snacks including flavored popcorn, a selection of nuts or pretzels. Our elves can also help you add a personalized touch by working with you to create your company's own custom label.

    Promotional edible gifts are a tasty and budget-friendly way to share your holiday greetings with companies of any size. You may not deal directly with everyone at a given office, or even within a given department, but chances are you deal indirectly with people working behind the scenes, and it is a nice reminder to them that your company appreciates their business.

    Promotional gifts are also a great way for companies to provide their employees with a little taste of holiday cheer. With the added stress and pressures which are typical in the busy holiday season, it is nice to have goodies for employees who may not have time to eat lunch, or just need a little boost late in the day. We can ship boxes of fresh frosted cookies or brownies with your company's logo, or decorative tins filled with an assortment of chocolates, nuts or pretzels. We offer a variety of container sizes so that you can easily place them in the breakroom, kitchen or anywhere throughout the office. Not only will your employees enjoy these tasty selections, but they serve as a great reminder of your company's gratitude for all of their hard work and dedication throughout the year.
