Did you know that food gifts, also known as business gifts or executive gifts, are one of the least understood and under-utilized categories in the promotional products industry?  For many years food has ranked below the “other” category in the PPAI annual survey of product categories, accounting for only 1.55% or $300 million in sales.  As a whole in 2015, our industry did about $20 billion, so food sales accounted for a very small piece of the pie.

“Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.”-Dr. SeussOur lives are filled with millions of seemingly mundane moments, everyday occurrences that we won’t remember tomorrow.

These milestone celebrations are indeed fabulous, but then we turn back to our normal, everyday lives.What if we celebrated the magic in those everyday moments?

Recently I was catching up on the final season of Downton Abbey when it hit me. One of the reasons I, and millions of others around the world, love this show is the dedication to presentation. Dinner is an event, complete with formal attire, real linens and fine china. When the meal is ready, the family is called into the dining room, where an impressive scene awaits. It’s a far cry from throwing a frozen meal into the microwave, isn’t it?
