The New Norm
We were recently contacted by a company who were celebrating the 20th anniversary of their business, a pretty big deal and one which, before lockdown would have been a huge celebration in their office! They didn’t want to miss out on celebrating such an important event, so they went virtual and got everyone in their team on a zoom call and had macaroons sent through in a macarons giftbox to each of their team members so that they could all celebrate together.
Sending a macarons giftbox through to all of your team members is a great way to make everyone feel connected and let your employee know that you are thinking about them and appreciate them. You can have macaroons sent through to any employee all over the UK, with next day delivery, this can be a last minute thing if you have lots of other things on your mind!
With virtual events becoming the new norm and having spoken to some of our corporate clients, we thought we would come up with a list of 5 must do’s when hosting one!
1). Send a treat (we recommend a macarons gift box!) to your whole team
First and foremost, as zoom has become the new norm, it can sometimes feel as if you are a bit disconnected from the rest of your team, even though you are talking to one another, trust us, we know the feeling. Having chatted to some of our corporate clients, they said they wanted to bring the team together in more ways than just inviting them on a zoom call. Having macaroons sent through to each of their team members in the form of a corporate gift box which arrived in time for the event, meant that everyone in the team had something which untied them. Plus as well all know, the food is the best part of any event, why leave it out now that we’ve gone virtual?
2). Get personal with your macarons gift box
We have all begun to realise and remember how exciting receiving something in the post is again. With the UK in lockdown a treat through your letterbox is ridiculously exciting, what’s even better is when that gift has a personal message. If you are planning on sending out a sweet treat (or indeed a macarons gift box) for your employee to enjoy during the virtual event, why not add a personal message to let them know how much you’re thinking of them and how much you’ve appreciated their hard work. At Miss Macaroon, we can even do all the work for you, when you place your macarons gift box order, you can add a personal message to your employee and we will hand write this for you ourselves, a no stress process! We will then have your macarons sent through to your employee who will receive them the next day. The personal touch to gifting employees at a virtual event is so important at the moment. We have found at Miss Macaroon, having spoken with some of our employees, that the smallest things can completely brighten their day.
3). Organize a theme
In order to make your virtual event as exciting as possible, coming up with a theme for everyone to follow and sending your macarons gift box in line with that theme is a sure fire way of getting everyone involved, having fun and bringing a sense of togetherness to the event. At Miss Macaroon we are able to pantone match to any colour you request, we can also logo print onto our macaroons to give you a really bespoke gift. When you have your macaroons sent through to your employees, why not send them in the colours of your theme or even with an image printed onto them which is in line with your theme? This type of macarons gift box is an easy way to get everyone involved with the theme, plus it adds an aspect of fun to your event!
4). Macarons gift box tasting
What better way to get everyone involved in your virtual event than making part of it interactive with a tasting of the macarons gift box that you have sent out. Once you have had the macarons sent through to your employees, make sure you let them know there will be an interactive tasting of them on the zoom call. Otherwise you might find they get eaten up pretty quickly! If you want to make this part even more exciting, when ordering your macarons gift box, you could send out different flavours to each different employee, we will take care of this and it is just as easy to order multiple flavours with us and have the macarons sent through to your employees.
So there you have it, some creative tips on what to include in a virtual event that you may be holding with your company. Our macarons gift boxes are also a unique gift to give because we reinvest 100% of our profits back into providing training and jobs for long term unemployed people in Birmingham. By having your macarons sent through to your employees, you will not only be helping to boost their morale, you will also be helping to change someone’s life, take a look at our website here: www.missmacaroon.co.uk
