Affordable Gift Idea Series:
Nothing says holiday better than food! ‘Tis the season, no matter what time of year, to give the gift of delicious treats. When you have a lot of people to shop for, like an office group or family gathering , it makes sense to get the most out of your gift budget and find an affordable gift. Choosing gourmet popcorn tins will allow you to do this. Perfect for any office party or break room, a tin of gourmet popcorn is a wonderfully efficient way to say thank you, congratulations, good work, or happy holidays.
Popcorn tins abound during the holidays; we see them in every department, discount, and box store. They typically come in a cute tin with three standard flavors: caramel, white cheese, and orange cheese. While this is a good snack, you may want to boost the quality for your office gift. Choosing gourmet blends not only adds elegance and class to the gift, it also adds tremendously to the recipients’ enjoyment of it!
Expect to spend around $50 to $60 on a large popcorn tin. This may seem expensive for popcorn, but you will not be able to find another gourmet arrangement, whether a fruit basket or a chocolate sampler, that can feed an office full of people for less. Another option is to get a sampler pack. Still, this is by no means “cheap” popcorn, but it is a relatively cost-effective holiday treat for an office gathering.
When choosing your holiday popcorn tin, look for:
- Freshness. Ideally, the company will pop their corn fresh everyday so you get the best, most flavorful popcorn to send to your recipients.
- Variety. What types of flavors are available? Are there old favorites as well as innovative blends? Are there sampler blends available so you can send a little bit of all different kinds?
- Quantity. Are you going to be able to feed an entire office? Look at the serving recommendations to see how many people you can serve so you can effectively compare costs and volume size.
- Price. Again, popcorn, even delicious gourmet popcorn, typically costs less than other gourmet treats, such as fruit, chocolate, or cheeses, but do stick to your budget. If you do a little searching, you can find a company that can suits all your needs for your holiday popcorn gift.
Gourmet popcorn is guaranteed to be a success at any office gathering. Show some holiday cheer and go with the good stuff!
