You value your clients and employees so choosing the best thank you gift is important. If the gift is too valuable, you risk non-acceptance due to office policies. If it’s too small, it can appear that the recipient is of less importance. Gourmet chocolate is the perfect solution. Here’s why.
1. Perfectly Proportioned
Whether you’re sending a personal sized box to your contact or a shareable box for the entire office, gourmet chocolates fall into the perfect business gift category. Gift a 12-count box of chocolates to your contact with the option of a larger box for sharing. Because, let’s face it, no one wants to share if there isn’t enough to go around.
2. Quality and Uniqueness
You want your business contact or new employee to feel appreciated. Gourmet chocolates – especially hand-painted ones – present uniqueness and high quality! Even after all the delectable chocolates have been devoured, the memory will last on.
3. Hit on More Senses
What have you heard over and over in Marketing 101? Reach as many senses as possible for the longest lasting memory of your brand. When you gift gourmet chocolates, you start with an appealing, sometimes artful, presentation. As soon as the box is opened, the sweet smell of chocolate reaches the recipient and holds their attention. Touching the chocolates as they bring them to their mouth closes the deal for the final reward – the taste!
4. Nothing Wasted
You know your gift won’t be tossed aside or, worse, thrown out! Because who can resist chocolate? Unlike typical branding trinkets, gourmet chocolate will be enjoyed to the last piece! In some cases, the chocolate box gets re-purposed into office supply holders and desk organizers, thus reminding them over and over of your appreciation.
Unlike dinners and sporting events which can be time-consuming and often cut into personal time, gourmet chocolates can be easily shipped and then enjoyed by the recipient over days or weeks. So your name stays in front of them longer in a more efficient way.
6. Farther Reach
Chocolate often finds its way home where friends and family of the recipient can enjoy it. How does this help your business?
- You’ve not only reached your client, you’ve reached your client’s family. This puts your name in front of more people.
- When the chocolate is memorable, people look for it again and again each year. And they will fondly remember whom they were received from.
7. Chocolate is universally desired
Who doesn’t love chocolate? Seriously.
So, while we may be partial, who can blame us? The evidence speaks for itself.
