2020 deserves special consideration! We are here to offer creative pathways for rebuilding and reconnecting with your teams, clients and beloved people.
With this in mind and the current changing challenges, we have
put together some festive cheer and unique ways to say thank you from sustainable gift deliveries to hybrid interactive cheer-filled online activities.
In true Delicious style, we present exciting, interactive and delightful options; whilst focusing on shared experience, eco considerations and true connectivity.
Check out our Ultimate Holiday season gifting guide – covering a range of innovative and personalised ways to gift sincere thanks to friends and employees.
Handcrafted Greetings Cards
Missing family members, close friends or colleagues this holiday season? Send a beautifully crafted, handwritten greetings card to send to them anywhere across the world, all printed sustainably on recyclable card. Our illustrator will create bespoke a selection of 3 different card designs for people to choose from, they will then be able to submit their own personalised message (up to 20 words) which our calligrapher will handwrite to be sent out to let your loved ones know you are thinking of them.
POA – variable depending on quantity and delivery locations
Option to include a charitable donation of your choice in the card as a gift
Feel Good Digital Advent Calendar
A feel good festive calendar, sent and opened digitally (or created IRL using sustainable materials), where each day there will be a wonderful gift for either the recipient or affiliated charities. One day might be a Song performed by a crowd pleaser (even if it’s the CEO!) the next a donation to a charity, the next day a digital Deliveroo voucher.
We will work with you on your budget per head and ensure that the advent is compliant with your brand ethics as well as being exciting to open each day. We can accompany this digital element with a designed & personalised card delivered to all your employees doors.
Bespoke Re-usable Gift Crackers
Reusable festive crackers, cleverly double up as napkins.
Simply “pull the cracker” then unroll the napkin ready for dinner!
Have a lower waste day and ditch wasteful cracker toys this year, with a beautifully personalised environmentally-friendly cracker. We can make it meaningful by filling it with a personal message and a gift your guests will enjoy long after their festive dinner.
Festive Eco Hampers
There’s nothing nicer than receiving a gift through the post or safely hand delivered. Our creative studio will help create and design a personal gift box for employees and associates.
Gifts that resonate with your brand ethics as well as being stylish and wellness focused.
The Gift That Keeps On Giving
With more and more people now working from home its hard to switch off sometimes and gain that work life balance. One great way of saying thank you is to offer a yearly subscription of choice. We will curate a package bespoke to your company that can have a selection of subscriptions that employers can chose from. Whether that’s a monthly magazine, beauty box, book club or snack box we can source them all.
We will manage employees choices, ensure the orders are correct and managed securely. That way your work force receives a thank you through their letter box every month.
Holiday Truck Delivery Service
Our festive holiday delivery truck service can hand deliver holiday gifts to your employees that are based in London. Think of an old-style milk carton delivery truck or one of the original coca cola holiday trucks styled beautifully in festive cheer that can drive round to guests houses and drop off employee gift boxes.
Add on music or Christmas carolling for an extra splash of festivity. This experience can be paired with any of our holiday gifting ideas.
NB: This service is only available to employees based in London.

The party will finish with a company-wide pre-recorded Thank You film featuring various vox pops from employees filmed either from their home or from a Covid secure studio space, mixed in with footage from previous holiday parties, pre-lockdown team memories or any company quizzes that may have taken place.
