If there's one corporate gift that nearly everyone can agree on, it's food. And incentive merchants have an abundance of options, big and small, that can reward your hard-charging employees, no matter what dietary restrictions they have.
If you really want to go all out for a star at the office, dip into Williams Sonoma's corporate gifting page and snag a Fortnum & Mason Hamper with China Assortment. Fortnum & Mason is a British brand, with heritage stretching back to 1707. Its famed hampers were ridiculously luxurious picnic boxes that the extremely wealthy took to their country estates.
Williams Sonoma is the sole distributor of such hampers in the U.S., and it includes an assortment of teas, biscuits and marmalades. It's also packed with F&M's Camelia teapot, a cup and saucer, and a gold-plated strainer. It's a splurge of extreme high-end luxury that most might not want to spend on themselves -- but give it to your best employee to show how much their contribution is valued.
Another fantastic option - but no less delicious -- is the Williams Sonoma Olli Charcuterie and Cheese Crate. Prepared by Olli Salumeria, a 160-year-old Italian purveyor of fine, cured meats, this delectable collection includes prosciutto, two types of salamis, and Swiss mountain cheese, aged at least three months.
All of Olli Salumeria's pigs are pasture raised and fed with vegetables. This fantastic collection packs a whole lot of deliciousness in a simple wood box, and will surely delight the carnivores in your office.
For the seafood lovers, send a Lobster Gram. Rymax resells the company's Ship to Shore Dinner for Six with Key Lime Pie. This mouthwatering assortment includes six 6-7 ounce Maine lobster tails, six 6-ounce filet mignon steaks, three 18-ounce bowls of New England clam chowder, and a 42 ounce key lime pie. It's the perfect excuse to host a massive surf-and-turf party.
Also from Rymax, there's Dean & Deluca's 18 pack Snacks on the Run (pictured at top). It's the perfect mix of chocolate and nuts for your always-on-their feet, high-energy employee, perfect to fuel her as she makes her way across town from meeting to meeting.
The pack includes hickory smoked almonds, salted pistachios, cranberry mix, dark chocolate hazel nuts, cheese cake caramels, chocolate strawberries, mixed nuts, and much more.
It's the ideal gift to satisfy all those mid-day cravings.
