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.

How To Save Money on Logo Chocolate Gifts

One of the questions we frequently hear is can the buyer keep the logo chocolate mold when buying company logo chocolates, because they paid the set up charge? The answer's that when you order chocolate from a catalog or internet site, the original chocolate molds have already been made by the factory and the master plates are already made. When you add your logo or text, a little plate, the dimensions of the logo or text is made to fit nicely in to the master plate and this is how your trademark or message is added to the chocolate. The chocolate mold plate, made with your emblem or message, wouldn't be helpful for any other purpose as it was only made to slot in to the master chocolate plate for the item you are ordering this time.

If you re-order again later on in the year or next year, the same chocolate item, your plate should be made available to use again without paying an extra set up fee.

But if you decide to go with a different piece of chocolate, something that will require your brand to be bigger or smaller in comparison to the piece already made or formed differently than the first to fit in your original mold, you quite likely will need to pay another set up charge. When you want a range of chocolate logo gifts in different price points you need to make use of combined quantity pricing.

When you choose more than one chocolate or candy and nut gift featuring the same size chocolate center-piece you can get a quantity discount. This way you may have different gifts at different price points for your workers and clients, but only pay for the set up charge one time.

(See TR24 and TR28, as well as TR8 and TR16. The SQ series also has the same size chocolate centerpiece as the item numbers mentioned above SQ4, SQ16, SQ32, SQ64 and you can also mix and match the FB16, FB36 and the FBTR.) Please note, that you will probably need to meet the minimum order for each size you select, but this will help you save money in the long run by not having to pay for multiple set up fees.

Best Chocolate when buying Corporate Logo Chocolate Gifts

As a company that sells logo chocolate corporate gifts all year long, we receive many questions about the taste of the chocolate and the chocolate shelf life.
We decided to put together a continuing series of short question and answer articles in regard to purchasing logo chocolate gifts.

A buyer asks, "What is the most preferred chocolate used when purchasing Corporate Chocolate Gifts"? 

ANSWER: The two preferred types of chocolate are fine Belgian Chocolate and Premium Swiss Chocolate.  Both are a higher grade of chocolate than found in the local supermarket and are also should be available as a Kosher Certified option.  You should be able to purchase all logo chocolate gifts in either milk or dark chocolate and sometimes white chocolate at no additional charge.
A buyer asks, "How long is the shelf life of the chocolate?"

ANSWER: All premium chocolate products should have a shelf life of over 1 year. It is not recommended to refrigerate chocolate, rather simply store the product at room temperature, not over 72 degrees, and keep away from direct sunlight and heating units. 

Some examples of the chocolate corporate gifts that are used for a variety of occasions would be: logo chocolate foil wrapped chocolate coins and foiled squares, chocolate business cards, chocolate wrapper bars and mini chocolate confection boxes make great tradeshow giveaways. 

Another great idea for marketing your business would be to give out full color logo chocolate wrapper bars, where you can include a coupon inside of the wrapper to promote special products or provide discounts to your customers. These would make great promotional give-always either in store or out on sales calls.

A great chocolate corporate gift would be the edible chocolate box- yes, you can eat the box. First, you take off the chocolate top and eat the truffles or confections inside. Then, you break apart the chocolate top and eat it too.  Finally, you break apart the bottom and sides of the box and share it with your co-workers.  If you have never eaten a chocolate box then you really should try it at least once. It is an experience that people will remember and talk about – so if you are looking for a corporate gift that provides the WOW Factor – this is it!
