9 Facts to Know BEFORE Purchasing Food Gifts

According to American Express Small Business Services, 50% of corporate gifts purchased during the holidays are food gifts, but many of those gifts are not purchased within the promotional products industry.  Instead, they’re purchased from brick-and-mortar retail stores, direct sellers, and various online merchants.  In fact, many clients do not realize that a promotional products distributor is able to provide them with food gifts, in addition to any other products with which you purchase from us!
1 – Convenience!
When you purchase from a brick-and-mortar store, an employee has to physically visit the store to browse the merchandise, which can be an enormous time sink– especially when dealing with holiday crowds!  Although shopping from a direct seller or online merchant saves the employee from having to leave the office, there’s still time spent searching through an overwhelming number of options and dealing with restrictions and policies that they may not fully understand.
2 – Gifts from KelseyPromo promote your company and brand, not ours.
Many direct sellers and online retailers plaster gifts with their branding; the first message the recipient sees upon opening their gift is the company that manufactured it, not the sender’s company.  Actually, the option for branding it with your logo simply isn’t there in most cases, so that the manufacturer’s logo is all that the recipient sees!
3 – Value driven pricing.
Most retail stores, direct sellers, and online retailers have flat pricing– you pay the same price whether you’re buying 10, 100, or even 1,000.  At KelseyPromo, volume purchasing allows you to purchase gifts on a sliding price scale, adding up to an even greater value.
4 – Fresher gifts taste better (and say something nice about the sender)!
Many gifts from retail stores, direct sellers, and online retailers are made up far in advance and left sitting on the shelf until your client places their order.  Not at KelseyPromo  We pack everything fresh just before your client’s order is ready to ship.  Even if the order is placed months in advance of its ship date, the order is produced to be fresh upon shipment, so your client can order well before the hectic holiday season and still be assured that they’re getting the freshest, finest-quality food, leaving quite literally the best taste in the recipient’s mouth.
5 – Our gifts are jam-packed full of the finest premium chocolates, fresh-roasted nuts and other gourmet treats.
When you purchases a gift from a retail store, mail-order company, or online merchant, it is difficult to evaluate the quality of their gift before their purchase.  All items in our gifts are delicious gourmet food.  KelseyPromo does not compromise on quality, so every item in every gift is guaranteed scrumptious, and we don’t fill our gifts with the fluff, air, or inexpensive fillers that you’ll find with many of the retail stores, mail-order companies, and online merchants. 
6 – We can arrange shipment to you or directly to each recipient.
When you purchase your gifts through us, your shipping options are nearly limitless.  We are able to ship in bulk to your client, or directly to each recipient–or any combination thereof!  We have mastered the fine art of packaging and shipping our gourmet gifts to fit your needs.
7 – No catalogs or promotional literature in your gifts.
How often have you opened a shipment and had to dig through a pile of catalogs and flyers just to get to the actual item?  By ordering through from us, you can avoid this aggravation!  With gifts from KelseyPromo, you will never have this problem; we do not include catalogs or other promotional literature in any order, so the first thing the recipient sees will be their lovely gift, not our advertisements.
8 – We will build customized gifts to meet your taste, promotion or budget.
When you purchase your gifts through a retail store, mail-order company, or online merchant, what you see is your only option; you aren’t able to make changes or substitutions.  When you order through us, however, a world of possibilities opens.  Maybe you love our Tower of Favorites but would rather have more chocolate instead of nuts.  Maybe you want our Gourmet Sampler Tower but need only kosher items.  Or maybe you want to include another promotional item or unique packaging.  KelseyPromo is happy to help!  Our years of experience go into each custom request, ensuring that you are able to have all the options you want, whatever they may be.
9 – No risk… because all gifts come with a 100% Money-Back Guarantee.
You do not need to worry– KelseyPromo stands behind our products.  Should you be unsatisfied for any reason, we’re happy to work with you to do what it takes to make it right.
