By now we’ve all heard the saying “extra”, which typically means someone or something is a bit over the top, dramatic, or excessive.  And while that might not be the best quality for a personality trait, it’s the PERFECT quality for a holiday gift meant to impress…which is where our food gifts come in! 

Initially, food gives people warm feelings.  It’s comforting, and tasty, so it instantly makes them happy.  This year we’re focusing on how to extend that good feeling beyond the holidays, transforming it into a lasting impression.  And we’ve identified two main ways to do that:  1) high-end quality and 2) food gifts combined with tangible, branded items.

HIGH-END QUALITY: Think about the last NICE gift you got. Was it name brand? Hand crafted? Super thoughtful? The latest trend? Now imagine giving someone a food gift that was all of those things! Our newest brand, Batch and Bodega, combines quality food from small-batch makers from across the country with branded swag to create a unique (and much loved!) gift experience. With different pricing tiers, you’re sure to find something that works with your budget!

Pictured here is the Hello There: Deluxe (JYQFI-NWKKS). It includes products from Poppy Handcrafted Popcorn, Byrd’s Cookie Company, Giddy Up Nuts, Martin’s Handmade Pretzels, Little Apple Treats, Grey Ghost Bakery, and a lovely journal from OrigAudio. The box comes fully customized, making a branded impression from the start! As with all of the B&B products, you can do this full kit at the top tier, or slide down to tiers 2 or 1 with a smaller selection of products to fit a more limited budget.

Maybe a virtual holiday happy hour is on your agenda? If so, the Speakeasy: Light (HZOKD-NWXJB) is the perfect option that will make everyone feel extra special. This kit includes bourbon cookies, salted caramels, Old Fashioned infused ice cubes, and a customized flask. Upgrade to tiers 2 or 3 to add mixers, additional ice cube flavors and coasters.

And I know we’re talking holiday gifts here, but let’s face it, birthdays are a big deal! Whether it’s your employee’s, your customer’s or even better, your company’s, birthdays are a time to celebrate. So why not do it with this kit?

The Yay, You!: Regular (VZOIA-NWXJS) includes birthday cake ice cream cones, cotton candy, marshmallows, rice crispy treat, and celebratory lapel pins, along with a personalized note. Upgrade to the Deluxe for an even bigger party and add party cracker cookies and sprinkles. What better way to say “we’re glad you’re here and a part of our world!”?

Whatever the occasion, let us pair you up with some Batch & Bodega goodness for a special and memorable treat all are sure to love!

FOOD + SWAG = LOVE: Food gifts are a crowd pleaser every time! But if you want to take it to the next level, and really extend your brand’s “shelf life”, pair food with branded swag.

Let’s start with a classic… a ham or turkey. Many companies hand these out to employees at the holidays as a sign of gratitude, not just to them, but their entire family (I mean come on, who can eat one of those things alone?!). Things are a little different this year and everyone isn’t in the office, so why not let us handle drop shipping a Honey Cured Boneless Ham with Bamboo Cutting Board (MUSHC-ILNYQ) for you? There are also options for a bone-in half ham, whole ham, or smoked turkey breast.

Speaking of family, why not treat them to a movie night in? They choose the movie and you provide the popcorn with this Movie Night Gourmet Popcorn Gift Set (BCVKH-NNRGX). This set includes a reusable popcorn popper, kernels and multiple seasonings, sure to tackle any snack craving! And when the movies DO open again, they can smuggle their own snacks in using their branded tote bag (but shhhhh, don’t tell anyone!).

The holidays are a time for parties! Help get things going with the Party Starter with Bamboo Cutting Board (ITUIH-JNMOT). A little sweet, a little savory, a LOT of happy! This set comes with a variety of nuts, meat, cheese, crackers, a cutting board and a meat/cheese knife. A shelf-stable option is also available, so it’s perfect for everyone!

I’m in Michigan, so when I think of holidays, I think of cold weather and snow. But the reality is, there’s a LOT of the US that is warm in the winter, and what better option for those folks than the Bodacious BBQ Gift Set (AVPKB-NTDWJ). It comes in 8 different color schemes and includes the Grill Master Apron (complete with a bottle opener, padded oven mitt and towel), Chicago Steak & Chop Seasoning, Kansas City Classic Rub, Athenian Herb Dryglaze, Vermont Grill Dryglaze, Santa Fe Dryglaze and an All Purpose Tote.

Sometimes a tasty little sweet treat is the perfect gift, and our Bite-Sized Delights (VZVNA-MWTWK) are no exception! This set (also available in a 6 pack) comes packaged in a reusable wooden crate that’s made in the USA, complete with your logo on the front, leaving a lasting reminder once the cookies are gone (and believe me, they won’t last long!).

So whether it’s a high class, handcrafted treat, a traditional ham with a cutting board, or a less traditional barbecue kit for the warm weather folks (or the grilling die-hards!), we’ve got you covered!! And no matter what you choose, all of these are sure to be appreciated, and most importantly, remembered.

Holiday Gifting Beyond the Office

Sending gifts to clients, staff or business colleagues during the holiday season is a thoughtful way to show your appreciation.   At Barefoot Promotions Your Swag Connection we can help you select gifts that appeal to a wide target audience.  We can drop ship to you so you can personally deliver the gifts or you can provide us with a spreadsheet of names and address and we can ship to the individual recipient for you.  How easy is that?
Here we talked about food gifts that can be shared within an office, but what about if you want to give a gift that is a little more personal, one that can be delivered to your client’s home or that they can take home for the entire family to enjoy?  Well, we have that covered!  We can mold your logo into chocolate, etch it into a keepsake cutting board, print your logo on the ribbon to wrap the basket in and more.
