Gifting food accessories should be about enhancing dining, entertainment and conversation How can you help someone enjoy their food more, or be more revered as a great host of an ultimate home dining experience? We have some thoughts.
#1 Deep Wine Glasses
Bigger the better. It's a talking point and carries a higher perceived value compared to dainty alternatives. How you fill them and what you fill them with is your business,. but when company's coming for dinner make sure they're on the table. A small, subtle, delicate engraving or print can recognize the origin of the gift, OR consider our next suggestion...
#2 Stem Charms
Be charming with your next wine glass gift. Creating or decorating a series of elegant wine charms allows you to brand an element of the table setting. Creative icons of your industry, organization or event theme can become conversation starters, or become part of a game or team assignment. This idea is more an an end to a means and it's up to you to be creative and give them meaning.
