The holiday season is an exciting and happy time filled with gift-giving and general joy. When you get older and start a career in the “real world” one of the things you might be expected to do is come up with corporate business gifts for bosses and coworkers. It’s one of those unwritten rules, sure no ones going to tel you you have to do it, but it sure can’t hurt your popularity around the office.
Coming up with an appropriate and appreciated corporate business gift has become increasingly difficult in today’s world where many people look for a reason to get offended or reason to complain in general. That’s why sweets, such as cookie gift baskets, make for a perfect option for your corporate business gift. Here are three reasons to consider it if you haven’t bought anything yet.
- History: The act of giving sweets has a long-standing history in many parts of the world. For example, since the 1930s, children have left cookies and milk on a table for Santa Claus on Christmas Eve in Canada and the United States. The chocolate chip cookie is over 75 years old and Americans alone consume over 2 billion cookies a year.
- Cost-Effective: Finding the sweet spot when it comes to the price you should spend on a gift can be hard as well. Gourmet cookie baskets allow you to spend just enough to say ‘I care’ without breaking the bank on people you may not know outside of work.
- Popular: Estimates suggest cookies are consumed in 95.2% of U.S. households. If you happen to stumble upon someone who doesn’t appreciate your gift, they’re definitely in the minority. Chances are even if someone doesn’t necessarily like them themselves they’ll have kids or a spouse that will happily enjoy your tasty corporate business gift idea.
If you’re still trying to come up with what to buy for the people you work with, think about some kind of cookie basket or sweet treat.
