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.

Put it in Writing

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.

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.

Gifts for Employees

You run a tight ship and expect everyone to pitch in and give their all for your new project, so it’s nice to show your thanks for great results by giving your team a gift certificate to a nice restaurant. They’ll appreciate the opportunity to enjoy some downtime with their families.

Gifts for Valued Coworkers

Hard-working team players keep you up to date on missed meetings and cover you when you need to duck out early for PTA, so thank them with a day at the spa or a round of golf at a local course.

For the Boss

It never hurts to show a good boss that he or she is appreciated. Consider the Vintner’s Savory Selection Gift Box with our Signature Beef Summer Sausage, Sweet Hot Mustard and two types of cheese that pair wonderfully with the gift’s bottle of Lucinda & Millie’s Cabernet Sauvignon.
