Did you know that CEShoppes has 2 Different Corporate Gift Blogs?

Just like we have many different corporate gift websites that cater to niche markets, we also have blogs that do the same. If you are in to cooking and great food, you will want to check out our Gourmet Food Gift People Blog – featuring “Cooking with Tristan”. Tristan is our 14 year old son who loves to cook and bring you new recipes a few times a month. His latest episode was about “How to Make Smoked BBQ Ribs,” and they were absolutely delicious! He has quite a few more recipes up his sleeve and more that are now playing on our YouTube/Gourmet Food Gifts Channel. For the best of both worlds, check out his recipe pages, that explain each recipe,  notes about what he might not have mentioned as he was making the meal on video and any other little tips or hints – you can also watch the video right from the recipes page.

The Gourmet Food Gifts blog also has the latest in business food gift ideas, and new product launches for the holiday season.  Check it out today!

Finding the Right Holiday Corporate Food Gift

The holiday season is a time when every business wants to thank their clients and employees. The number one business gift for the holiday season is food.  Even more so, it seems to be chocolate! Many customers come to us year after year looking for holiday business food gifts that really stand out from the competitions gift in the break room. Sitting side by side you want your gift to be the most remembered gift they receive this holiday season.

GourmetFoodGiftPeople.com offers the best tasting chocolate logo gifts and corporate holiday food gifts made to order.  They have not been sitting on the shelf for months at a time. You may not realize that these food items that you find at the membership clubs and big box stores have been sitting on a warehouse shelf for 6-7 months before you purchase them. I guarantee you this will not be the gift you were hoping to give your clients when trying to make an impression.

The exciting thing about corporate chocolate gifts and gourmet food business gifts is that they can be personalized for your industry. There are many types of chocolate molds that feature a wide range of industry themes that could pertain to what your business does for its clients. The gourmet food gifts from Maple Ridge Farms can be branded with your logo on the side of a handmade wooden vehicle, or a wooden box filled with candy and nuts. You can also add your logo or text message to ribbons on boxes of gourmet food gifts, and sometimes even on the boxes themselves. The ideas for making your holiday business food gift uniquely yours are endless.

Business Holiday Food Gift Ideas from CEShoppes

Every year just before the holiday season, we have customers ask us how they can get their business clients excited about the gifts they send out, as a thank you for their continued business.  If you are getting lackluster results with your holiday gift selections here is an idea that you should consider.

One of the best gifts you can send to your clients at the holidays is a food gift. You should plan on purchasing the very best tasting items that are made when ordered, and have not been sitting on the shelf for months at a time.  What many people don’t realize is that the food items you find at the membership clubs and big box stores have been sitting on a warehouse shelf for 6-7 months before you purchase them. If this is how you have done your holiday shopping for the past few holiday seasons, your customers and employees will be surprised when you present them with fresh – made when ordered, food gifts.

The exciting thing about corporate chocolate gifts is that they can be molded and engraved just like fine crystal.  You can even add not only your logo to the chocolate, but in many cases you can add chocolate industry theme designs to the chocolate assortments, creating that WOW effect you have been looking  to achieve.  Recipients are wowed by the intricacy and level of detail, and often rush to show their gift to others in the office, saying, ‘This is too beautiful to eat’. Eventually they do eat the chocolate, and break into the rich taste of great milk or dark chocolate. Most importantly, they’ll remember the message and who gave it to them.

Other food gift ideas are show on our gourmetfoodgiftpeople.com website. We have even added steaks, chicken dinners and fresh live Maine Lobster to our offerings at the request of customers who wish to have more than chocolates and cookies to send this holiday season.

Recipes . . .

I just finished reading an article in one of the on-line magazines about building a better web business. It made me feel right on track. A couple of months ago, when we finished writing www.GourmetFoodGiftPeople.com I wanted the website to be more than just products. So, I added a section that included recipes and I just included a recipe for Maple Ridge Farms Ham with Raspberry Glaze in our last email newsletter. Amazingly enough, the article I just read said that at this time of year consumers are flocking to websites with recipes. They said it didn’t matter if you sold nuts and bolts or mattresses, but to add some recipes to your website and to your newsletters and your customers will love you. – I just felt like I had been validated!

 

We are always trying to figure out ways to attract customers to our websites. We don’t want to always try to sell you a product, but engage you in what you are passionate about and where we can contribute. Today, I added seven new recipes that are from my family’s collection. Aunts, grandmothers and my mother are all contributors to these family recipes. Many recipes are older than I am – (not telling you how old!) but I am sure it will bring back many memories of early childhood for many of you when you read through them or give them a try.

If you have a recipe that you would like to share with other Creative Expressions customers, please feel free to email us at recipe@gourmetfoodgiftpeople.com Please put RECIPE in the subject line.
