Picking the Right Food Gifts
Find the perfect food gifts.
Are you looking for the perfect holiday gift to share with clients, business partners or employees? Food gifts are always a welcome choice. But there are so many options out there. How do you choose the best one for your recipient?
Things to consider when giving food gifts:
Spicy is hot right now, but it’s not for everyone – While some things are nearly universally loved (chocolate chip cookies, anyone?), other things are more subjective. Some people love spicy goods, the hotter the better. Others break into a sweat just looking at a jalapeño. Do you know the tastes and preferences of the person you’re giving the gift to? If so, a targeted item like branded hot sauce may be just the thing. If not, you may be better served with a less polarizing food item like popcorn.
Sour is a bold choice – From lemon hard candies to flavored gummies, there are a lot of options for sour candies. Sour may be the perfect choice for a food gift, but if you’re not sure if it will be appreciated, consider including sour candies in with an assortment of more traditional sweets.
Coffee or tea, the debate rages on – Most people love a hot beverage from time to time. Coffee and tea are the most popular choices. (Fun fact: tea is the second most consumed beverage in the world after water.) Give your business partners the gift of a morning jolt of caffeine with gourmet coffee or tea.
Sweet or savory, the hardest question ever – Chocolate or potato chips? Cupcakes or pretzels? Sugar or salt? Someone has to ask the hard questions. You really can’t go wrong either way, but if you just can’t decide, you can always go with both. The Sweet and Salty Sensation box is the best of both worlds.
You really can’t go wrong with food gifts. Tasty and useful, they’re perfect for sharing and a great way to show appreciation, reward people or just spread the message of your brand. For more ideas on finding the perfect edible gift, explore the 2016 Festive Food Guide, Share the Season.
