5 Best Holiday Gifts and How to Deliver Them

The holidays are all about showing some love and appreciation for the people in our lives, whether it’s family, friends, colleagues or clients. Gift giving is not just about giving something for the sake of it. You need to put thought and effort into it in order to convey the right sentiment. If you’re looking for the best holiday gifts and how to deliver them this year, here are our suggestions.

Gourmet Food

Food is one of the best gifts you can give, especially around the holidays. Aside from the fact that we all love food, it’s appropriate for almost any occasion and recipient. There’s such a range of items to choose from, making it easy to tailor the selection for the person you’re presenting the gift to. Gourmet food is ideal when you want to impress clients or colleagues and present something polished to deepen your loyalty and business relationships.

Liquor and Wine

Celebrations and the holidays go hand in hand, and what better way to convey your admiration for another than with a bottle of liquor or wine? This gives you the opportunity to really showcase your effort and thoughtfulness by gifting their favourite bottle, whether it’s a vintage wine or whiskey. Not sure what they like? Don’t be afraid to ask around. If it’s a colleague, boss or client, sneak it in as a question the next time you’re having a casual conversation. Alternatively, ask an assistant, friend or family member if you’re playing Secret Santa. It’s an excellent way to present something that’s high-quality, classy, and personalized.

Chocolates

Who doesn’t love getting chocolates as a gift? They are delectable, versatile and elegant, making them another favourite staple of the holiday season. The combination of velvety, smooth, rich and sweet flavours makes it a luxurious treat that will put a smile on anyone’s face. You can easily customize it, selecting different shapes, sizes and flavours, which makes it more meaningful, exciting and luxurious when they open it.

Soaps

In case you haven’t heard, natural soaps are making a huge comeback. More people than ever prefer the luxurious scents of handcrafted, natural ingredients that also benefit their skin. Opening a gift that’s filled with incredible aromas is a delight in and of itself, which is why it’s one of the best holiday gifts. There are many different varieties to choose from, dedicated to softening, moisturizing and leaving the skin silky smooth. If you work in an environmental-based industry or have a colleague, client or loved one who appreciates eco-friendly items, soaps are the perfect gift to give them. 

How to Deliver Holiday Gifts

Now that you have some ideas of what to get for the people in your life this holiday season, let’s talk about how you can best present them in a polished, elegant and beautiful way.

Use Custom Wooden Boxes

Despite what we may tell ourselves, we often judge books – and even gifts – by their covers. It’s just a natural human trait. When you put as much thought and effort into selecting the perfect gift, don’t lessen its impact by stuffing it into a cheap holiday bag or wrapping paper. Instead, finish it off with a veneer wooden gift box so you can impress your recipient before they even open their gift.

At Ekan Concepts, we specialize in crafting high-quality wooden boxes that are suitable for every occasion. Choose from different types of wood, have it customized or include your company logo to add a final touch. To learn more, browse through our website or get in touch with us today!
