But what are the most popular corporate Christmas gifts ? Definitely the food and wine ones. In the next lines, with the help of, we will analyze the most interesting food and wine gift ideas for employees and managers.

The importance of the corporate gift: the spirit of Christmas

In an increasingly digital world, as pointed out in the ANSA article, companies are losing their relationship with physical gifts. This behavior brings with it many disadvantages to which the most important companies fortunately stay away. What are the reasons, then, for a corporate food and wine gift?

  • Grouping: a basket, or a Christmas gift box in its physical format guarantees a cohesion of the work group and a precise identity of the company. We often forget how important it is that the work team is cohesive and feels involved in the work project in which it has fallen.
  • Loyalty: giving a natural product to your employees or managers allows you to retain human resources and make them feel in a real family.
  • Brand identity: each gift can be customized according to the needs of the reference company, guaranteeing a precise identity and why not bringing with it an indirect advertising to its services. The ability of a basket to be immediately identified by others can make the difference to highlight the company’s qualities.
  • Quality of the company: all the most important companies give food and wine products to their employees. This differentiates them not only in the elegance of thought but also in demonstrating that the company cares about valuing its workers.
  • Gratitude for work: Many underestimate the importance of a Christmas corporate gift, but this can be perceived by employees as a recognition of the work done throughout the year and good wishes for the future. A recognition that stimulates the desire to do well of human resources and encourages love for the company for which they serve.

The characteristics of a corporate gift: unity is strength

Before taking a look at the most interesting food and wine ideas for employees and company managers, it is appropriate to dwell on the characteristics to be sought. Often we get lost in gifts that are not very functional or completely out of focus, let’s see what are the characteristics of an ideal Christmas corporate gift.

  • Packaging

Among the most important features of a Christmas gift there is certainly the packaging. A real business card that identifies not only the company, but that enhances above all the content given.

Voluminous baskets with graphics dedicated to Christmas can offer a surprise effect of sure impact that managers and employees will surely appreciate.

  • Cost

In many cases, companies need to buy gifts for their employees with a fixed budget. In recent years the cost of a food and wine gift varies according to the needs of those who buy it, adapting with prices within everyone’s reach and always guaranteeing excellent products.

Surely a gift of important dimensions will have a higher cost, but you can search for your favorite products and focus only on those. We emphasize that the higher cost does not always guarantee the best solution for your company, but you must know how to adapt the gift to what you want to convey to your employees or managers.

It is therefore necessary to evaluate this aspect well and choose accordingly. Surely a large gift is suitable for business executives.

Gift ideas for employees and managers: a world in the world

Employees are the real engine of the company and we must enhance them with a tailor-made gift, but also the managers allow the machine to achieve the set objectives, how to best manage gifts?

Although many decide to buy identical gifts for employees and managers, we would like to emphasize that it is still necessary to differentiate the two types of work and relate Christmas gifts accordingly.

A gift idea for a manager focuses mainly on products of the highest quality that enhance their role, while for employees it is more appropriate to buy products of excellent quality, but that are not too intrusive either in cost or size.

Gift baskets: the beauty of simplicity

A gift basket made for Christmas can be a perfect gift idea for those who do not have much time to decide on the products and want an already balanced and functional packaging. Surely employees will appreciate and will not be able to help but try the delicacies in them.

Gift ideas for executives: you have to dare a little
