It originated as a French tradition, charcuterie (pronounced "shahr-ku-tuh-ree") is the art of preparing and assembling finely crafted, cured meats and cheese products. The chef that prepares the meat is called a Charcutier. The charcuterie concept has become very popular outside of France, and has evolved to include a variety of foods besides just meat and cheese. In essence, a charcuterie board is an assortment of artisan dips, spreads, breads, olives and accompaniments, all delicately arranged on a serving board.

In today’s world it is so important to come up with neutral corporate gift ideas with originality and thoughtfulness in order to become an admired delicacy or treasured memory. Corporate gift baskets that comprise local and rare delicacies for your organization are a cost-effective way to strengthen relationships with your employees and clients. Corporate gifts are a valuable investment for most businesses and can also serve as a tax deduction.

Even though the pandemic is slowly passing us by, the work from home mentality is here to stay. Company’s such as Amazon, Google and the likes are allowing many of their employees to work a few days per week from their own homes. This is slowly now becoming the new reality. Corporate gifts for employees working from home are a great way to keep the staff connected. Many organizations have implemented programs and surprise events that improve remote work, making it healthier, more efficient, and more fun. Often people working from home may feel disconnected, if not interacted with for a long period of time. Here are some great gifts that can keep remote staff connected and engaged.
What is it? A box filled with goodies for a virtual happy hour that delivers as much fun as you can find at any local bar. An individual charcuterie that is ideal for an employee zoom call. This allows all staff members to receive individualized gift charcuteries that can be simultaneously shared during a celebratory video call. Why employees working from home love this: They’ll love the ease and simplicity of popping open this box and finding everything they need for an instant party, including delicious treats, a beverage and even engaging icebreakers.
What is it? A beautiful gift box stuffed with high quality local charcuterie snacks, and wine paired perfectly. This employee gift will not only support small batches and local artisans but it will be thoroughly enjoyed by your coworkers when they’re curled up around a nice fire or on a comfy couch at home. Why employees working from home love this: The perfect balance of a robust and smooth wine will complement the succulent sweetness of the organic snacks, chocolate, and delicately roasted almonds. Not to mention, your employees will feel good knowing the box has helped support local companies.
As some companies are creating back to the office programs, there are numerous ways to engage employees and get that sense of togetherness back from a long time away from the office. Individual Boxes for staff/client meetings These snack boxes are great for longer meetings with clients or staff! The value of these boxes are perceived far greater than most snack options and are engaging. Having a thoughtful snack provided by a company for either a long meeting, training/onboarding new employees really goes a long way by showing care and appreciation.
As employees are getting vaccinated and the scare of Covid is slowly fading away, boards to share amongst a group of people is a great alternative to individual boxes. Employees get the opportunity to get together and share and feel engaged at work and most of all appreciate the thoughtfulness of the company they work at.
