Christmas luxury corporate gifts: how to choose them?
It is almost Christmas time and it’s time to think about corporate gifts. We all know that gifting food is always a great gesture, but we need to select products and manufacturers with great care. Our choices can reflect our taste and show how much we care about the gift recipient. Whether it is with a co-worker or a client, it is always important to make a good impression.
Let’s do it right! Choosing excellent products and manufacturers means gifting more than food, but rather a feeling, an unforgettable sensory experience. Let’s take a look at some high-quality Christmas corporate baskets.
Products and manufacturers: what does excellence mean?
Christmas hampers should celebrate Italian gastronomy and enhance the most excellent delicacies and the wisdom, art and passion that they stand for. Only an exceptional manufacturer can make an exceptional product – that’s a fact.
That’s why it is paramount to select prime-quality brands. We have selected some manufacturers to join Italy Bite’s assortment, which fully respect the territory and ingredients. They process their raw materials manually as far as possible and the ingredients are strictly selected after constant research.
Slow Food Presidia, Protected Designation of Origin or Protected Geographical Indication: labels truly matter and guarantee high quality. Whoever receives this gift is sure to be holding a piece of Italian culinary history.
Let’s talk about luxury Christmas hampers (luxurious not because of the price, but because of the quality) - the best way to say: “Merry Christmas!”.
Food that is gifted, regardless whichever type it is, has a much bigger purpose than just being eaten. Good food has a unique evocative power. Flavours make precious memories that will last for a long time. It goes far beyond the primary function of nourishing people; an excellent product is a tool to enjoy a sensory experience.
That’s why gifting food is such a meaningful gesture, even more so if it is a corporate gift. People who we work with – colleagues, employees or clients – have to understand the message that we are sending them: we appreciate them, we are thankful for them and we hold them in high esteem.
Food hampers: how to make them?
So far, we have talked about individual ingredients, but an overall vision is essential when we make a food hamper. It is easy to pick the right products individually, but it’s much more difficult to properly pair them, in order to create a harmonious composition of flavours, taste and traditions.
It’s not enough to own the best instruments in the world, they also need to sound good together. A hamper is like an orchestra conducted by a director. The foodstuffs in a gift hamper must pair well, they must tell the same story and bring you on the same journey and they must convey the same compelling feeling.
You can either pick the foodstuffs yourself or you can trust whoever knows flavours very well. We at Italy Bite have prepared Christmas hampers showcasing delicacies from all over Italy.
Do you have a colleague who is in love with Southern Italy? There is a perfect Christmas hamper for them: Diving in the Mediterranean celebrates the most intense flavours of Southern Italy. Do you have a client who is obsessed with mountains? Mountain scents with many delicacies from Northern Italy is the right solution. We have the right hamper for any request, need or wish!
You can make thoughtful gifts for anyone. And receiving a tailored gift instead of a standard one truly makes the difference.
Another option is gifting the ingredients to make a great recipe. This will be a double gift for all those people that love cooking, since they will be able to create with their own hands and with extraordinary ingredients an iconic dish from Italy’s culinary tradition and they get to enjoy it, too!
Enough with randomly-paired flavours; it’s time to go for a complete, consistent and harmonic proposition. If you want to make original food gifts, think of each ingredient as having a voice. Find those ingredients whose voices sound good together.
As far as corporate gifts are concerned, quality is of course the main feature. How much does service matter, though? How important is a trustworthy, accurate delivery that is on time? And how important is having customised and flexible solutions?
They all matter a lot, especially if it is an important order and you're in a hurry. You need to find a responsive company that is able to meet their clients half way. That’s why we at Italy Bite have thought of everything in order to facilitate your orders as much as possible.
First of all, hampers come in different sizes, to meet any needs related to weight or prices. Then, a very important feature: all our packages are 100% customisable in order to fit any dietary need, whether it be vegetarian, lactose-intolerant or gluten-free.
We offer a fully guaranteed shipping. We ship fresh and perishable food all over the world using isothermal packaging and synthetic ice, when necessary. Each package is made with care and we pay the greatest attention to food preservation.
If you want to impress your co-workers or clients with original food gifts, flavourful delicacies or iconic dishes of the culinary tradition of our country, you’ve come to the right place. A package from Italy Bite is always a gift, but even more so at Christmas time.
