Fruit Cakes: Emerging Fast As Favorite Holiday Gifts Option http://blog.coffeecakes.com/2011/10/03/fruit-cakes-emerging-fast-as-favorite-holiday-gifts-option/ http://blog.coffeecakes.com/2011/10/03/fruit-cakes-emerging-fast-as-favorite-holiday-gifts-option/#comments Mon, 03 Oct 2011 07:10:02 +0000 Administrator http://blog.coffeecakes.com/?p=334 It is right time to plan for the forthcoming holiday celebration. Many people would be planning to enjoy a short holiday tour. I know there are many like me who are simultaneously worried about the budget also. I have special passion for traveling and to enjoy the holiday period away from regular life routine. It gives me new energy to face the challenges of professional and personal life. I also enjoy the company of family members and friends on specially planned picnic tours. However, I used to postpone much desired tour programs many times just because of limitation of budgets. I started to carry fruit cakes with me on tours and my tour expenses remarkably came down.

On the tours, we have many options for eatables to carry along with. However, I always prefer to carry fruitcake. Many reasons make this availability first choice. These can be stored for many days. The taste of fruit cakes remains same as that of fresh even after weeks time. These can be packed and carried with easily. These are more energetic than other options. Most of family members and friends including the kids like these cakes.

However to enjoy the best period during holiday season, selection of best fruit cakes is crucial. Variety is so wide that selection becomes a task. Generally, my choice differs from other family members. To solve out this problem, I buy small packs of different cakes instead of buying the one with large pack. Although smaller packs are little costlier than larger packs but it gives ultimate taste of personal liking to everyone besides creating variety. You can carry different type of small packs of cakes to please your accompanying friends. Traditional Texas, Grandma Famous Fruit & Nut, Assumption Abbey, Ultimate Fruitcake Lovers Sampleris, Texas Pre-Sliced Individually Wrapped, Fruit & Nut Original Cake Ring etc are versatile choice and likings. Chocolate Fruitcake has been the favorite to the kids.

Fruit cakes are emerging fast as favorite holiday gifts also. These are being used in corporate circles and business circles as business promotion gifts. Many reasons make the fruit cakes perfect choice for holiday gifts. It can be sent even to the distant recipients. Its long shelf life in another feature that makes it favorite choice. When you gift a fruit cake pack as holiday gift, it reflects your special thought line that is in synchronization of time. Every family likes to spend holiday period enjoying tea or coffee sessions with in- mouth melting fruit cakes.

Business Gifts: Selection Makes Remarkable Difference http://blog.coffeecakes.com/2011/09/27/business-gifts-selection-makes-remarkable-difference/ http://blog.coffeecakes.com/2011/09/27/business-gifts-selection-makes-remarkable-difference/#comments Tue, 27 Sep 2011 11:04:57 +0000 Administrator http://blog.coffeecakes.com/?p=330 Business gifts have been reliable business promotion tools since centuries. On each and every celebration, demand of these increases amazingly. Opening of new service branch, festival like Christmas, New year and Easter and launch of new products etc are some prominent occasions which are used for business promotion by distributing gifts. This time too enquiries are flooding in for the new introductions of this class. Manufacturers too are sensing the increasing demand of festive gifts. To get maximum sales at this once a year occasion of New year, they are more concerned about the introduction of new items. The affordable price is second but important concern. Coffee cups are being popular as business promotion gifts just because of their high utility for everyone and affordable price.

When we approach the stores for unique business gifts, we come across many options. Selection of gift depends upon the available budget. It shouldn’t be inspired with any particular theme like religion, occasion, place or personality. It should have utility for all. The selected gift should be used by the recipient instead of being placed in shelf because recipients forget the gift and you both after placing it in almirah. Such business promotion gifts serve no purpose. If you are in bakery business, select a delicious fruit cake or coffee cake. If you are into the travel business, think about the set of travel mugs or coffee cups. Both of these can be customized with business slogan or a particular message. Both the options have high utility value for most of recipients.

If you are promoting the business on or around some festivals, eatables are the best options to be selected as business gifts. Cinnamon Walnut is yummy selection to impress the recipients. It has been the preferred choice of kids and adults both since years. It has brown color tone with golden traces. Standard packing of most of cakes comes in 28 oz weight. Cinnamon Streusel Butter with sour whip cream coffee time cake is also a good option.

Whatsoever business gift you choose, it must be reflective. Don’t compromise with quality or look. If you have tight budget, reduce the numbers of recipients instead of reducing quality. Many organizations specialize in this trade that offer special services for customized packing and confirmed delivering. Business cards should be inserted in gift packing essentially; it helps the recipients to recognize your gift. Gym Set, Tooth Brush Timer, Marks Man Flat Clock and Tabletop Golf game, wall clocks and wall hangings etc are also gaining popularity as affordable festive business gifts.
