Saturday, August 29, 2020

With the number of employees working from home on the rise, sending a gift to celebrate a special occasion is the perfect way to boost your workers’ self-esteem, show your appreciation and reassure them that, while they may not be seen, you haven’t forgotten them.  If you are looking for birthday ideas, need thank you gifts for your remote employees, or simply want to brighten someone’s day, we have a range of delicious baked goods that are sure to put a smile on their face and create a lasting memory of your thoughtfulness.

While traditional gifts such as drink bottles, gift cards and tech items can be an easy go-to option, decadent cakes and pastries show that you have thought outside the box when it comes to gift ideas and they are sure to be something that every employee loves.  We know that receiving a decadent layer cake in the mail is a lot more exciting than receiving a mug! You can also create an enduring connection between your company and employees as every time they smell the sweet aroma of a cake or pastry, they will remember your generous gift.

Gifts for Employees Working from Home

Surprising your employees at home is easy and simple with our assortment of scrumptious and mouth watering treats that make the ideal gift.

Coffee Cakes

Danish Crown Cake

What better way to celebrate a company milestone or anniversary than with a Danish Crown cake that is fit for royalty?  We use our secret family recipe to create a delicious, incredibly soft and moist Bundt cake that your employees will love.  These cakes are ideal when you want to share the success of your business’ achievements with a little remote celebration for your employees.  Our crown cakes are beautifully offset with Danish-inspired flavors such as our vanilla and cream cheese Copenhagen Crown cake.  Of course, our Scandinavian Almond Crown Cake, Imperial Chocolate Crown cake with premium chocolate chunks and our classic Danish Crown cake with buttery sweet cinnamon and golden walnuts are sure to awaken your employees’ taste buds and have them equally as excited to celebrate a work anniversary.

Layer Cake

Kringles make any celebration better.  You can send these to your employees as a delicious ‘just because treat’ to remind them they are a treasured part of your team.  With more than thirteen tasty flavors to choose from, everyone is sure to have a favorite.  The flaky, rich and buttery pastry dough is crafted over three consecutive days to result in the perfect casing for our various homemade fillings.  Once you start sending these out to your employees, be ready for the influx of emails saying how good they taste!
