Thoughtful Gifts for a Well-Deserved Promotion

We spend a great portion of our days interacting with our employees and co-workers, so it’s important to acknowledge their achievements over the years. One way we can do this is by giving them a thoughtful gift when they receive a promotion. You can make it a group gift from the whole team or a special surprise just from you. Below are a few suggestions from Hickory Farms for rewarding a valued employee and saying a job well done.

Thoughtful Office Accessories

Keep it businesslike and gift them with a leather portfolio, desk set or nameplate engraved with their new title. Another thoughtful idea is a picture frame, so they can display a special family photo or memorable vacation shot in style on their desk or credenza.

The Gift of Time

If you’re the supervisor or manager of an employee who just ascended another rung on the corporate ladder, consider recognizing their dedication and hard work with some additional paid time off in the form of extra vacation or personal days. They’ll appreciate your gesture and will return to work refreshed and ready to hit the ground running.

Throw a Party

Depending on the employee and the industry, throwing a bash in their honor may be a great way to celebrate their promotion. Plan a team-building office affair complete with delicious offerings from Hickory Farms’ line of promotional gift boxes like our Deluxe Smokehouse Collection with four kinds of summer sausage, five cheese varieties and two flavors of mustard. Or break out the bubbly at an after-hours celebration so spouses can join the fun.

Whichever gift idea is most appropriate remember to include a congratulatory note tucked inside a card or written on office letterhead to commemorate the occasion. They’re sure to treasure it and remember you fondly no matter where their career winds up taking them.

Corporate Gifting for the Holidays: Start Planning Now!

Savor the Season Gift Box from Hickory Farms

Fall is firmly upon us which means the holidays are quickly approaching so start planning your gourmet corporate gifts for the holiday season.

Giving corporate holiday gifts to clients and customers has many benefits, the most obvious being a stronger relationship with the client. Giving a gift shows that you value their business.

Corporate gift giving also allows you to further emphasize your brand. That does not mean showering clients with logo-bedecked items, but rather driving home your core message. Simple, high-end gifts like wine gift baskets and cheese baskets associate your company with quality and is sure to be enjoyed by the recipient.

While many businesses have eliminated corporate gifts due to the down economy, showing your appreciation for clients through corporate gift baskets illustrates that your company is going strong.

Here are a few tips to keep in mind when selecting corporate gift baskets for Christmas for clients or colleagues:

 

  • Don’t focus too much on your logo or branding. If every item is covered in branding, the gift seems like a marketing ploy rather than a sincere “Thank you.”
  • If your budget doesn’t allow for individual gifts for every employee or contact at the company, gourmet corporate gift baskets are the way to go. Not only are gift baskets easy to send, but they are also easily shared in the office and can include something for everyone.
  • When choosing corporate gifts, it’s important to work with a professional. A knowledgeable account representative can advise you on the best gifts and assist you with the entire process, even tracking each delivery.
  • Gourmet fruit selections are an elegant choice, as are wine and cheese baskets. Gift baskets filled with gourmet sausages, cheeses, mustards, and crackers are also a great treat for an office, where they may just cause an impromptu holiday party!
  • Keep in mind any dietary restrictions or food allergies your gift recipient may have. Our consultants can help you find the perfect gift for any client because we carry a variety of gluten-free and diabetic-friendly gourmet foods.
