Do you want to surprise your clients this Easter? You’ve probably come up with a list of Easter gift hamper ideas for your clients that have left you wondering which one is the best. Surprising your clients with a wine gift hamper is a fancy way to let them know how much you appreciate them.
This gesture, small as it may seem, can lead to a stronger relationship with your clients and more business opportunities. Keep in mind that each of your clients has different tastes. It would impress them even more if you presented them with a wine hamper they would enjoy and not give away. The great thing about most wine-hamper suppliers is that they can custom build your basket.
The first step is to choose the right packaging for your wine gift hamper. The options to choose from include a wooden box, a picnic basket, a wicker basket, and more. What’s your client’s personality? Which one would they appreciate? Remember to line the bottom of your preferred packaging with tissue paper to cushion the bottles and prevent damage.
You don’t want to go wrong with the main gift. Determine whether your client prefers red, white, or rose wine. Do they like it sweet or dry? You can include two of their favorite and one they can try out. Choose a Chardonnay or Merlot if your client is new to wine. However, if he/she is a wine connoisseur, you can give them more complex varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon.
Alternatively, consider the season. For example, across most areas in Australia, April (Easter time) to September is usually warm. This calls for a crisp, light and refreshing wine like Sauvignon Rose or Sauvignon Blanc. During the cold months, though, a heavier wine like Cabernet Sauvignon is ideal.
The Foodie Goodies
Why not add a few snacks that your client can enjoy with their wine? Cheese is excellent, especially the non-perishable ones like gouda. Nuts like walnuts, pistachios, peanuts, and almonds are also appropriate. Other snacks include crackers, crispbreads, olives, and chocolates. Dark chocolates match best with red wine like Merlot, while white/milk chocolates go well with white wine like Sauvignon Blanc.
Complete your client’s wine gift hamper with some wine accessories. They include wine glasses (should match the type of wine in the hamper), aerators, wine openers, and corkscrews.
Finally, personalize your wine gift hamper with your company logo or a few promotional items. Your gift hamper provider can print your logo on the card and ribbon. They can also provide a branded basket.
Consider the Wine Lover hamper that includes a 750ml bottle of Pepperjack Cabernet Sauvignon Barossa, 2 wine glasses, a VinOair Wine Aerator, Port Willunga Boxed Salted Pistachios 100g, Maggie Beer Quince Paste 100g, and Falwasser Sesame Crispbread 120g. All this goodness is elegantly presented in a Gourmet Basket Signature Gift Box with tissue, a ribbon, and a gift card.
This surprise will wow your clients and benefit your company in the long run. Make sure the contents of the hamper are actually what your clients enjoy. Imagine receiving a type of wine you completely dislike! Don’t let that happen. Take the time to investigate what kind of wine they like and what other goodies they will appreciate.
