Corporate gift baskets help to improve profits for your company in several different ways. They improve employee morale and loyalty, solidify customer relationships, and enhance relationships with suppliers. This increases productivity, sales, loyalty, and lowers the number of mistakes to increase the company's profits. With these kinds of benefits, fruit baskets and other business gifts are well worth the cost. The biggest part of these gifts is choosing something everyone can enjoy. Here are three different edible options to consider:
Healthy Fruit Baskets
Rather than opting for the same plain old fruit from the grocery store, treat customers, suppliers, and employees with the luxury of delicious heirloom fruit. These varieties are the same flavorful varieties grandparents enjoyed as kids. They are often organic and come in a variety of different kinds including apples and pears that you just don't see anywhere else. Everyone regardless of personal tastes or age enjoys them. Heirloom fruit baskets are also a great choice for vegetarians, those who eat organic, and anyone watching their diet.
Look for fruit baskets that come in delightful vintage packaging that most people can't bear to throw out. Also, include your corporate contact information and a thank you note. This way, you will have corporate gift baskets that will be different from anything else they might receive. If you would like to send something else along with the fruit, consider adding a dessert or nice wine to compliment the natural sweetness of the apples and pears or add gourmet chocolates in the basket.
Cheeses and Smoked Meats
Gourmet cheeses and preserved meats are two great items that make delicious corporate gift baskets. These foods are not generally sold anywhere else, but in specialty stores. This makes them a delicacy that not many indulge in regularly. Cheddar and blue cheeses are just a few of the options. Smoked meats included in this type of gift can include meats such as salmon and beef jerky.
Looking for a little more to go with it? This type of basket goes perfectly with a fine bottle of wine or champagne. If you would rather stay away from alcohol, consider sending crafted tools to go with the cheeses such as knives, slicers, and cutting boards to make consuming the gift easier. Edible gifts also go well with personalized items such as fine pen sets. Avoid gifts that are simply thrown into a box. Instead, look for an attractive and professional looking packaging to top off the products and make them a gift not soon forgotten.
Addicting Gourmet Chocolates
Corporate gift baskets filled with sinfully sweet gourmet chocolates. Unlike the typical chocolate found on convenience store shelves, gourmet varieties have a soft silky texture and rich taste that shows your appreciation with each bite. This type of gift comes in all different styles from small individual pieces to larger, solid or hollow pieces that look as good as they taste.
For variety, add a mixture of chocolates including white chocolate, milk varieties, and dark shapes. Some are even available in butterscotch, mint, or colored in unusual colors such as red or blue. Other types of sweets that go well in a gift include those with filling. This includes real fruit, preserves, cream fillings, and even liquors. In some cases, you may also want to include diabetic varieties for those who cannot have chocolate.
When it comes to corporate gift baskets, look for items that can be enjoyed by everyone. They should also be different from the common gifts businesses and employees often receive throughout the year. By taking care to select memorable and delicious fruit baskets, meats and cheese, or chocolates, your appreciation will be recognized by all who enjoy your gift.
