Celebrate National Cocoa Day with Personalized ChocolatePosted December 13, 2010 | | Promotional Products, Promotions by Theme or Event
In light of today being National Cocoa Day, I thought it would be appropriate to discuss the merits and some possible uses of Personalized Chocolate, the sweet brown stuff that warms the pleasure center of the brain like nothing else.
Why Custom Chocolate?
Given that the holidays are upon us, you should consider sending personalized chocolate as corporate gifts to your clients to thank them for their continued business throughout the year—and to lay the groundwork for an even more profitable relationship in the year to come. Edibles are a great idea because, among other things, the holidays are all about bonding over food. In fact, you’d be hard-pressed to think of an office or business that doesn’t look forward to holiday treats.
Corporate gifts aren’t the only use for custom chocolate; we also receive orders for personalized chocolate wedding favors frequently. If you are planning a wedding, personalized chocolate gifts will help your guests remember the event with a smile on their face. If anything else, some custom chocolate candy tucked in their wedding goodie bag will keep your out-of-town guests from digging too far into their mini-bars.
Here at InkHead Promotional Products, we have a handsome selection of distinctive chocolates that we can wrap with your logo and a message or in some cases even impress your logo onto the chocolate itself.
Personalized Chocolate Gifts Carried by InkHead
Custom Promotional Chocolate Bars like the one by Goya pictured here will help sweeten any deal you have to make with a client. The item below is 5 oz. of milk chocolate, sized 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″ and comes packaged in a handsome gold gift box. What makes this item remarkable is that both the bar and the gift box (imprinting optional) can receive your graphic for a memorable impression. The chocolate may not hang around for long, but your customers will definitely remember who gave it to them.
Chocolate shaped like other things is fun. The kids may get chocolate bunnies at Easter and chocolate Santas at Christmastime, but what about grown-ups? A great gift around New Year’s, the Auberge Chocolate Champagne Bottle – 8 oz below comes wrapped in gold foil and packaged in a gift box. The item takes a one-color imprint on one of several stock labels with holiday messages for occasions throughout the year, including “Season’s Greetings” and “Happy New Year.” Additional imprinting can be done on the gift box. This is an unusual corporate gift that is sure to be remembered. You may also think about using this particular item as personalized chocolate wedding favors and pass them out as mementos at the rehearsal dinner or the wedding reception.
Another great chocolate item we all love is a bag of Custom Chocolate Coins. InkHead has a wide selection available.
So you want to give your customers a holiday gift that will make a lasting impression throughout the year but doesn’t look like blatant “marketing?” Done and done. Our Custom Gumball Machine can be filled with gumballs or chocolate candies and has such retro style that it will sit prominently on reception desks and in employee breakrooms, dispensing treats while making impressions again and again. This item would also make a great installation at any office party!
The Bottom Line
Custom Chocolate will make your customers remember your brand or business because you made them feel so good. When ordering chocolate, it’s best to coordinate with our Promotions Specialists to determine availability and to discuss shipping, as most chocolate items will require insulated cold-boxes for safe, melt-free delivery. Don’t forget that the items featured in this post are subject to availability, so they may not be in stock at the time of ordering. Be sure to check with your Promotions Specialist to ensure that they are.
Note also that our Promotions Specialists are in no way responsible for any of your customers’ post-chocolate remorse. That’s a problem you’ll have to work out on your own.
