How to Personalize a Corporate Gift

With the competitive nature of today’s corporate landscape, standing out from the crowd is a hard task. This is why it’s more important today than ever before to offer amazing customer service and allow your current and potential clients know how much they’re valued. Your company can grow and foster great business relationships by showing appreciation with corporate gift baskets customized with the following goodies.

Treat-filled coffee cups

Coffee mugs are great promotional items. Not only are they great for everyday use, but because they often sit on a client’s desk, they also provide a constant reminder of your business. Make your coffee cup even more special by pairing it with a special treat. For a simple presentation, fill mugs with a bag of our Peppermint Snow Mints, or go the extra mile by pairing them with our Ceylon Tea Collection, a couple sweeteners and a tea spoon.

Send a personal note

In the Digital Age, something as simple as a hand written letter can make a big impression. Periodically, take the time to sit down and send your clients a note of thanks. For bonus points, add in a small gift, such as a letter opener or a pen with your company’s logo.

Company apparel

Whether it’s t-shirt, polo or jacket, a piece of clothing with your company’s logo on it is a gift your clients will actually put to use. Plus, in addition to being a thoughtful gift, apparel also increases brand awareness.

Delicious gourmet treats

Food can create positive associations. You can form an instant connection by sending your customers a corporate gift basket, such as our Festive Cheese Sampler, Summer Sausage Trio Gift Box, or our Traditions of Home box. To make a bigger impression, we can personalize your gift box by adding your company’s logo and including a ribbon with a custom hang tag.

By sending your clients a Hickory Farms corporate gift box customized with your company’s logo, you can make your customers or clients feel truly appreciated.

Bake a Batch of Nutty Cookies for Cookie Month!

October is one of our favorite months here at Hickory Farms. Along with the crisp, cool days and gorgeous foliage, October is also Cookie Month, making it the perfect time to bake a batch of nutty cookies for your fall party or festive Halloween celebration. To give our customers some inspiration, we’ve chosen three recipes guaranteed to please.

Oatmeal Dried Fruit Cookies

Add some extra flavor to traditional oatmeal cookies with the addition of some dried fruit. If your mixture of oats, butter, egg, vanilla is too dry, add a splash of some almond milk to the mix. Bake the batter on an ungreased cookie sheet for approximately 10 minutes in an oven preheated to 375°. Let them cool on the cookie sheet for five minutes before transferring to a wire rack.

Cashew Cookies

These nutty favorites taste even richer with the addition of sour cream and some chopped up Hickory Farms cashews. However, the real decadence lies with the burned butter frosting. Melt butter over medium heat until light brown, then add some heavy cream, confectioner’s sugar and vanilla and spread on the cooled cookies. These deliciously rich treats are sure to get rave reviews at your next harvest gathering.

Nutty Butter Cookies

Try lifestyle maven Martha Stewart’s nutty butter cookie recipe, which can be tailored to please any palate. Select your favorite nut for the batch — anything from peanuts to roasted pistachios can be added. Martha’s secret for flavorful cookies is to first toast the oats in butter and then add them to the rest of the ingredients. Her recipe makes two dozen cookies, but could easily be doubled or tripled for a large gathering.

Celebrate Cookie Month with good friends and family and enjoy making some fun autumn memories to share with future generations.
