Executive Jelly Bean Gift from Maple Ridge Farms

6 Dec

Executive Jelly Bean Dispenser Standard Multi-Color Assortment

It is the holiday season and many organizations are looking for that perfect thank you for clients and employees. Food is always a fun idea at this time of year, but of course food goes away, so from a marketing point of view the question is how do we keep our gift in front of our client for the entire year.

Pairing a food gift with a sustainable and branded container is the ideal combination of “thank you” and “reuse me.” And of course the more often a client reuses your container, the more often they see your logo and of course are reminded of the gift.

One gift that is sure to be used again and again throughout the year is the Executive Jelly Bean Dispenser, the “Business gift of the year” from Maple Ridge Farms. From their website: “This nostalgic dispenser evokes the childhood memories of the local candy store and their multi-colored array of delicious confections. Simply remove the cover, and fill the chamber with jelly beans. Turn the crank and feel like a kid again!”

Nostalgia aside, we just think it looks cool and will enjoy a prominent spot in the client’s office. Along with the wood dispenser comes a half-pound assortment of JELLY BELLY® jelly beans. To further assure that your gift is used and reused, send your client a jelly bean refill every month or so.

The dispenser is a noticeable 11″ x 6 3/4″ x 2 5/8″ and the wooden cover is firebranded with your imprint, with an printable area of 3″ x 1 1/8”.

This Holiday, Make It Last with Glass

29 Oct

Footed Square Glass Jar

What could be sweeter than a holiday gift that promotes your business or organization all year long? During the holidays, food-related gifts are popular, but it’s important to make sure that the container (and your logo) lasts long past the time the treats are devoured.

Enter the glass goody container, which can be used and displayed on office desks and kitchen counters for years to come.

The more attractive the jar, the longer it will be used and the more prominently it will be displayed. Mid-Nite Snax has many handsome glass containers to choose from (filled or empty). I am a fan of both the Footed Square Glass Jar with Sports theme candies and the classic Glass Square Jar.

While you’re on the Mid-Nite Snax website, check out their snack tins too – since metal and glass are more likely to be reused than a cardboard container, and are by their nature recyclable, they can help promote your client’s sustainable message or brand better than a tosh away container, especially if language explaining the re-usability of the contain is included with your marketing message.

If you are an ASI distributor, you can get more information about Mid-Nite Snax’s glass containers on their website. If you are interested in Mid-Nite Snax products to promote your own business, contact your local promotional items vendor or email info@proformagreen.com for information and pricing.
