The conventional assorted dry fruit boxes have now given way to some new and quirky gifts. Gourmet hampers are in this season, with many corporates choosing premium food items like decadent chocolates, high-end coffee, chocolate-coated dates, almonds or cashews, and more to add a sweet note to the festivities. You, too, can skip the traditional gifts and opt for a more gourmet experience for your clients or customers.

Employees aren’t confined to their office desks any longer. They are working from home, cafeterias, holiday homes, offshore locations and more during the pandemic.

Employees who stay away from home go back to their hometown and their family is often elated to see the gift their company has given them. In such cases, home essentials and electronics are super loved gifting items. Think of toasters, coffee makers, hand blenders, air fryers, cookware, tiffins, and more. They are considered auspicious during the festival and also usher goodwill at home!
