You’ve made the initial call. You broke the ice. Your foot is in the door. Now what?

It’s time to book that meeting or it’s time to close the sale! But how?

What is a Foodie

Well if your prospect is a self-proclaimed foodie, we have the top 16 food lover “sends,” (Sendoso’s term for corporate gifts), that appeal to foodies with good taste.

The definition of a foodie, or food lover, is a person with a particular interest in delicious food. They typically love gourmet foods, are familiar with multiple types of cuisine, and always have a pocketful of restaurant recommendations for their friends and family – both local and abroad.

Food lovers can also be picky restaurant-goers, and can sometimes be labeled as “food snobs.” The benefits of this group of people, if they’re your prospect or customer, is they’re probably familiar with “famous” local finds, little gems, and can appreciate a locally-sourced ingredient, a farm-to-table dish, a craft beer with a story, or a single-origin chocolate bar tinged with Himalayan pink sea salt–straight from the Himalaya’s.

The 16 best corporate gifts for foodies to get your conversation started

For food lovers with a sweet tooth

Whether you are sending to customers or prospects, if you know through conversation they love sweets, here is a list of delectable confections that are sure to impress. From vegan, gluten-free, and United Kingdom (UK) based sends, these gifts for foodies cover the full range of sweet to sweeter within the Sendoso marketplace.

Foodie gifts for the fans of all things savory

9. Italian Essentials

Send with Sendoso Direct

This corporate food gift is great for the prospect who enjoys watching Italian cooking shows, making their own pasta, or is fanatical about how “extra” a virgin olive oil really is. In terms of gifts for foodies, you can’t go wrong with this gift that will literally send the taste of Italy thanks to Tasty Ribbon. Sourced and curated from small Italian businesses, this box will transport your foodie prospect to sunny Italy. They can start with some primi piatti with spaghetti or penne, with the pesto or the tomato and ricotta sauce. As they wait for the water to boil, they can enjoy a bag of tomato and oregano cookies to whet their appetite. For dessert, let them dive into the handmade vanilla cookies, the coffee and hazelnut Dragées, the decadent Cremino, and the milk chocolate bars with tangerine, coffee, or hazelnut filling.

11. A real Philly cheesesteak

Send with Sendoso Direct

If your foodie has been to Philadelphia, they’ve tried a cheesesteak. While there are turf wars and adamant claims on who has the best Philly cheesesteak, Pat’s King of Steaks’ claim as the inventor of the original cheesesteak is tough to argue. Thanks to our Goldbelly partnership, Pat’s has made a package designed for 4-6 people, which includes 4 Philly cheesesteaks 9-10” long, 1 pouch of cheese whiz (it’s not an authentic Philly cheesesteak without it, ask a local), and includes the options of choosing to have them with onions, American cheese, or even provolone cheese if you so dare. (Don’t tell a Philly you prefer provolone!)

12. Boba Milk Tea & Popcorn Chicken

Send with Sendoso Direct

When it comes to boba milk tea (aka bubble tea), you either love it, hate it, or you’ve never tried it. If your prospect is a foodie, they most assuredly have tried it. And for the boba connoisseurs out there, they know that chicken and boba pair well. If you’d like to sway a whole team, this is actually a food experience that needs an 8-person minimum thanks to our partnership with Marco. Led by a team of chefs with training and experience from San Francisco’s fine dining and Michelin-star restaurants, and Kassava’s two founders (aka boba connoisseurs), this experience will leave you with a full tummy, and full of confidence in the kitchen.

This kit includes loose-leaf tea, boba, milk base powder, boba straws, tea bags, fry mix, seasoning mix, soy sauce, and chicken.

13. Legendary Carolina BBQ Oink Sampler

Send with Sendoso Direct

There is a time and place for BBQ, and the decisions about which fork to use or what wine pairing to try go out the window when your prospect breathes in the tantalizing smell of smoky, charred, finger-licking-good BBQ. Enter Kings BBQ, the legendary BBQ restaurant that has been a mainstay in Kinston, NC since 1936. Your foodie recipient will appreciate this Oink Sampler, comprised of some of King’s bestsellers, like their hand-chopped pork BBQ, two racks of BBQ pork ribs, one pint of Brunswick stew, one pint of potato salad, one pint of slaw, and 12 King’s hushpuppies. This is another small town gem that is made nationally available thanks to our Goldbelly partnership.

14. Chicken Noodle Soup Package

Send with Sendoso Direct

While chicken noodle soup might not come to mind on a foodie’s list of favorites, there is always a special place in everyone’s hearts for comfort foods, especially when one isn’t feeling their 100% best. Thanks to Spoonful of Comfort, this gift set includes a 64 oz jar of sensational chicken noodle soup (4-6 generous servings worth), six bacci rolls, six cookies, a ladle to serve up smiles, and a personalized note card. If your prospect tells you they’re recovering from a bug or seasonal allergies, sending them this thoughtful package shows you care about their wellbeing. And again, a foodie loves food. With this send, you’ve basically guaranteed yourself a great conversation once they’re all patched up and feeling better.

15. For the discerning coffee drinkers

Send through our Send Curation team

Another option offered by our talented Send Curation team is this curated message and carefully selected coffee bundle. It’s thoughtfully designed to help you close the deal with the food lover who appreciates a delicious cup of coffee. If during your conversations they mention things like nitro brew, pour-over, or their preference for a single-origin dark roast bean, this bundle is for them (through you). This bundle includes:

  • An 8oz Joey double wall ceramic mug (Laser engraving available)
  • A Clara French Press
  • A bag of coffee – whole beans or ground
  • A clever pun or handwritten note like “Don’t sleep on us, we’d work “brew”-tifully together.
