Christmas is a time for family, friends, and of course… food. Nowadays, with the busy lifestyles of people everywhere, it’s hard to make time to celebrate with loved ones. However, there is one way you can show your gratitude towards your employees this Christmas season- by sending out corporate gift basket!
No need to break the bank or go all out on price here- just send some goodies that your employees will enjoy. From wine and chocolate to cheese and crackers, find the perfect hamper for your company below!
Why should you send a corporate gift hamper?
If you’re a large company, sending a hamper is a nice gesture to show your employees you care. You can send them to their homes or workplaces, and employees who work late during the week and don’t have time to go home and cook their dinner can enjoy your hamper.
If you have a smaller company and you want to show your appreciation towards your employees, corporate gifting isn’t a bad idea, either. It may not seem as expensive or as difficult as personal gifts to pick out, but it’s much appreciated by your employees.
The types of corporate gifts you can send are endless. You can get hamper labels printed or choose to take pictures of a seasonal decoration for your staff to keep.
What do you include in your hamper?
Don’t worry, we’ve come to the rescue of your Christmas hamper shopping list! You don’t need to be ashamed of the fact that you don’t know everything, so we’ve taken the guesswork out for you by letting you know what you can buy for your Christmas hamper…
1. Wine and chocolate
According to Lloyds Bank, the average Brit will enjoy over 11,000 Christmas dinners this year, and with many people adding a glass of wine to their meal, it’s not surprising that the Christmas party season is the perfect time to include some of these fine wines and chocolates in the hamper!
Or how about some mulled wine?
2. Cheese and crackers
According to research by Ocado, the average Brit will have cheese with their Christmas dinner on 24 out of December.
Tips for making the most of your hamper
Make sure your food hampers are something your employees can enjoy on a personal level, as well as on a professional one. Start with what you know and don’t ask for more or else you’re setting yourself up for a tough time in the days leading up to Christmas.
It might seem like a small gesture, but sending your employees a hamper is a great way of getting to know your people. You could also combine your annual hamper with a Santa’s sack- with a box of chocolates in one bag and some fun gifts in the other.
Giving your employees a little something extra for Christmas isn’t just the kind thing to do… it’s the right thing to do! Make sure you let everyone know about the hamper that is set to be sent out, and leave the wrapping and returns up to them. If your employees take some time out of their holidays to wrap and label the hamper, all the better!
