With the holidays over, many of us now turn our attention to Valentine’s Day. Valentine’s day is fast becoming as popular in the work place as many other traditional holidays. More and more businesses are using Valentine’s Day to show appreciation for those who help make them successful.
Valentine’s Day is a day to reflect on and show appreciation for the relationships in our lives. It celebrates the commitments we make, and the time and effort we put in to keeping those relationships strong and solid. These relationships are similar to the relationships needed in the workplace: Strong, committed relationships where both parties wish the other to succeed. The more relationships a company has, the better off it is. Vendors, customers, and employees are essential to a business and create a unique sense of kinship. Business owners and executives realize their importance and are starting to celebrate the Valentine’s Day holiday to recognize these special relationships.
Sending a gift to those who have helped in your success throughout the year is a great way to show your appreciation. Ensuring that partners feel valued is a great way to solidify these relationships and ensure that they continue well into the future.
Party platters are a wonderful gift to send to an office full of friends and allies, and there are usually options to fitwithin most budgets. Breakfast platters tend to be less expensive, and people tend to eat less in the morning as well. Sending an array of breakfast platters will start their day off feeling appreciated!
For those with a larger budget, a catered lunch is always a welcomed gift! Receiving a spread of sandwiches, salads, and side dishes at a corporate meeting is sure to make their day! For offices with little time for gathering around the breakroom, Box Lunches are a great way to go. This allows vendors or employees to grab their lunch on the run and eat it at their convenience.
The most traditional gift to send for Valentine’s day is an assortment of sweets. A basket of cookies, chocolate or brownies is a gift that anyone can appreciate and is easily shared by the office. A platter of Chocolate Dipped Strawberries is a decadent offering, and a little more on the healthy side than most other sweets commonly sent.
Whether choosing to give a breakfast buffet or a basket of goodies, choosing the right caterer is always a good place to start. Caterers often have Valentine’s Day specials and can prepare and deliver your gift of sweets or savories. Corporate caterers such as Ingallina’s Box Lunch even offer free delivery to the metro areas of Seattle, Portland, Los Angeles, and Phoenix with low minimum orders.
This Valentine’s Day, don’t forget to include those business associates who dedicate their time and effort to helping you succeed. Solidifying these relationships is key to future successes!
