Being an elf is not a job for the weak. For weeks now, Terry has been in the midst of designing holiday gift baskets for an array of clients.
Once again we are designing a whole holiday catalog for Universal Studios, a variety of baskets in all shapes, sizes and price points.
The wine gift basket pictured here features two Universal branded wines and great foods in a striking basket made from barrel staves.
Barnes & Nobles has just brought us an exciting opportunity to package their Nook electronic reader for the corporate market. Ususally when we design a corporate gift basket such as this it’s for promotional use by the company we’re designing for. But placing the incredibly user friendly Nook, with its various accoutrements, in an attractive container with coffee, tea, possibly wine and such makes a fantastic gift basket good for the holidays, a birthday or a get well gift basket. We look forward to offering this to our clients this holiday season.
There are other projects afoot as well, including one for Heineken that will involve clear ice buckets and fake ice… Exciting! What can we design for you?
Corporate Gift Baskets:
Include your Logo Items
Sending something with your logo that can be used year round is a great idea. But, clients may be deluged with such items. If you pick something useful and package it for impact, then you get more for your money.
Including your items in custom gift baskets gets you more attention. Sending a mug is fine, but why not package it with some tea or coffee and a cookie or two? This will make your client put it to use immediately and you will be in his hands and on his desk. There are a myriad of companies promoting ad specialty items. Many clients leave their logo items with us so we can include them in their gift baskets. If you don’t have your own logo items, we can have them made for you and package them in a beautiful gift basket at the same time. We can also get ribbon with your name on it or use your stationery for the card message. We are happy to do anything that helps you stand out. Call and ask us for help. As we have stated before, Business is Personal and we mean it.
In our ongoing quest for artisan products, we recently came across Beehive Cheese, a small-batch cheese company from Uintah, Utah. Brothers-in-law Pat and Tim are perfecting old world craftsmanship to create some of the most irresistible and unusual artisan cheeses on the market. They use only first-grade-quality whole Jersey milk from their local creamery.
Fancifull carries these wildly popular flavors, but check with us when ordering because they sell out quickly. These cheeses are also featured in our gourmet gift baskets.
A new American Original that is hand rubbed with Espresso and Lavender. Buzzes your tongue with a nutty, exotic and bold flavor
An Irish style cheese made with whole Jersey cow milk. Buttery, full-bodied and lively with snappy, citrus-like and fruity notes. Melts on your tongue and leaves a subtle sharp note in your mouth
Seahive is hand rubbed with Beehive Wildflower Honey and local Redmond RealSalt. The honey is harvested from a local farm where the bees visit wildflowers and fruit orchards. The salt is from an ancient sea bed near Redmond, Utah, and contains unique flecks of color that are the result of more than 50 natural trace minerals.
These two elements impart a subtle rich flavor.
We have featured these cheeses in a great seagrass box (often used for our cheese gift baskets) and you can add it to any of our other gift baskets or come by and get some for yourself.
The most fun custom gift basket we created this week was delivered to the set of Glee for Kevin McHale who plays Artie on the show.
Our client had the small wheelchair, Glee megaphones and cheerleader pompoms. What happened next you can see here.
The Cristal champagne is sitting in the wheelchair that has Artie’s picture on it. The rest is strictly high school (or is it high camp?), containing lots of high-schoolish candies and snacks to set the right tone.
Gift basket projects like this keep things very fresh and lively here at Fancifull. Do you have a challenge for us? Maybe yours will be featured here as gift basket of the week!
We get to have a lot of fun here at Fancifull. Of course there are all the wine and gourmet products we taste (hey, have to make sure all the wine and gourmet gift baskets are properly stocked with great foods!) But we also get a kick out of all the custom gift baskets we get to design. This week’s winner as the most fun gift basket was the one we did for Greene and Associates for Big Love. It contained four dolls which were just downright eerie – but then there was that big bottle of Cristal. Take a look at the photo we snapped. How fun is that?
Need a customized gift for your business or production? We do corporate gift baskets also.
Fancifull has long been known for artful presentations, which you might say is one of our specialties. But DiSaronno really challenged us when they came to us for a corporate gift basket that would communicate a summer fun message and promote DiSaronno Amaretto with Moet Champagne as a fun summer drink (it does sound good, doesn’t it?). Sand and shells seemed like just the ticket, and we eliminated the basket in favor of a glass bowl, which allowed us to display our “beach scene” for maximum effect. We do a lot of corporate gifting, especially where the company has logo items and wants a display that has impact. We seem to do a lot of corporate gift baskets for auctions and giveaways – where an eye-catching display is paramount.
The Food Network has included small refrigerators in their gift baskets and studios often send fifty dvds to be displayed with the appropriate movie-watching candy. Wally always tells people to challenge us. I cringe a bit, but we always seem up to the task.
