FAQ Sustainable customer gifts
Your most frequently asked questions about chocolate gifts for (potential) customers, business partners and corporate customers 🎁
What can you give a customer in 2023?
Let's be honest: Your current and potential customers have seldom had such a large selection of services as they do today. Conversely, this means that companies have to work even harder to stand out from the competition and build deeper customer relationships or maintain good customer loyalty. And if we learned one thing early on: Great gifts keep friendships going.
Due to increasing digitization - not least also intensified by the pandemic - it is becoming increasingly difficult to keep customer relationships personal and human. Personal customer gifts that have been chosen with care are all the more important these days. This is how you can show your customers that you are willing to go the extra mile for them, even at a distance. Not only in a business context, but especially in relation to your personal relationships with them.
So what are good customer gifts in 2022? They are gifts that are surprising, special, original and above all delicious. Because people are more and more happy about (culinary) experiences that they can share with friends and family. And what would be more suitable than a gift box from Theyo?
How expensive can a customer gift be so that it is tax deductible.
Of course, customer gifts are also tax deductible. But what price level is allowed for customer gifts? We have put together the most important information and tips for you here . We also regularly share useful tips about business gifts on LinkedIn.
What occasions are Theyo's customer gifts suitable for?
Unlike traditional gift baskets, Theyo's innovative and individual gift boxes are suitable for almost any occasion because they are unique and unforgettable. Some of the best occasions for giving a culinary gift box are:
Birthday gift boxes :
An individual birthday gift box is always the perfect solution because you can put the individual products together to create a gift that is tailored precisely to the recipient's preferences and personality. For your birthday, you can add sustainable confetti, glitter or (non-alcoholic) sparkling wine to the culinary delicacies to make the gift even more festive. If you are not there for the handover, please send a (digital) birthday card with it.
Thank you gift boxes :
Individually designed thank you gifts can be used as a small gift for customers, as a thank you for employees, as party favors and simply whenever you want to show someone your appreciation. Sometimes a “small customer gift” is enough to put a smile on the recipient’s face.
Gift boxes for special occasions:
Life is full of small and large successes: promotions, project completion, business goals achieved and much more. And each of these successes is an opportunity to strengthen your interpersonal relationships by recognizing these milestones of your corporate customers with an individual gift! You can particularly stand out with gifts for smaller occasions.
Individual care packages
If you notice that your customers are missing work for a long time, a care package can brighten their day and show that you are thinking about them. And what could be better than a chocolate care package? Fine chocolates as a company gift for your customers, perhaps complemented by a book or coffee/tea, is the perfect gift to sweeten the recipient's day!
What belongs in a successful customer gift?
The great thing about our gift boxes is that we can customize the contents.
The following tasting boxes are among the most popular combinations or themes:
Gifts for foodies :
Food is a universal language and sharing food has always been a way to maintain relationships and create a sense of community. For this reason, culinary gift boxes for foodies are suitable for any occasion. You can either put these boxes together yourself or use our curated boxes, which we use to tell delicious culinary stories.
Coffee and tea gifts + chocolate:
Warm drinks in winter are a total no-brainer. But how can they be topped? Exactly, by complementing them with the perfect chocolate. Almost a match made in heaven!
Wine & Chocolate
Especially when there is something to celebrate, our customers like to use the well-known and much-loved combination of wine and chocolate. Because a really good red wine, accompanied by the finest chocolate, always works. With this winning combination you are guaranteed to reach the hearts of all wine fans among your customers.
Wellness and mindfulness gifts
Especially during the Corona period, the demand for wellness and mindfulness gifts has increased rapidly. And while our fine chocolates invite you to be mindful with the accompanying enjoyment instructions, we also have other products with a self-care character. We also offer dedicated mindfulness tastings - which you can also do together with your customers. We have also recently started offering drinking chocolate, which our customers enjoy as a little chocolate ritual and a break from everyday life. Combined with our cocoa shaker, it makes a great and innovative wellness gift.
Gifts for the whole family
Theyo gift boxes are ideal for families, friends and groups. Because our tasting boxes invite everyone to go on an exciting taste excursion through the world of chocolate together. The combination of new impressions and the delicious taste of fine chocolate is the perfect gift for families.
Are the contents of the Theyo gift boxes sufficient for more than one person?
Get in the pits and off to adventure! With the Theyo gift box, your customers and business partners go on an exciting journey for all the senses with family or friends. Exciting aromas and surprising taste profiles take the recipient on a taste excursion to the other end of the world. Sharing is caring! That's why it's particularly fun to discover the box together with friends or family. Depending on the size and scope of the box, the box is sufficient for tasting for at least 2-4 people. However, one box is often enough for a tasting with up to 10 people. Depending on how much the recipient wants to share ;-). If you are sending a gift box for a customer event, it is also a good idea for the whole family - especially children - to be involved. The chocolate tasting is a wonderful experience, which is even more fun when shared!
Can the package also be sent directly to the recipient?
Individual shipping to your team members, (potential) customers or business partners is no problem at all! Simply contact us and we will see - depending on the number of packages - what the most appropriate type of address collection is. Would you like to place your Christmas gift order directly in the shop? Then you can simply enter different “billing and delivery addresses” here.
What happens if the recipients do not accept the packages when they are sent individually? E.g. because you are on vacation?
When shipping with DHL, the following applies: if your colleagues, employees, customers or other recipients do not accept their Christmas present on the first delivery attempt, the gift box will be handed over to a neighbor, a parcel shop or a shop nearby. The gift recipients are usually informed directly by DHL. If the recipient does not receive or pick up their Christmas gift boxes within 7 days, the deliverers will assume that the shipment is not wanted and it will be sent back to us.
If you prefer a different delivery service for your gift boxes or prefer express shipping, simply contact us. We can also tailor shipping to your needs.
Do postage and packaging costs have to be included in the value of the gift for tax purposes?
It depends: The gift packaging must always be included in the value of the gift. The shipping costs, on the other hand, only have to be taken into account if, for example, it is an individual shipment and the packages are sent directly to the recipient - i.e. there is an additional shipping route from the manufacturer/donor to the recipient.
In which case does the 35 euro limit count as net and in which case as gross?
The rule here is clear: for donations that are eligible for input tax deduction, the net amount of the 35 euro limit applies, otherwise it is generally gross. For the recipient, in turn, this is generally taxable income, unless the donor chooses flat-rate taxation (§ 37b Income Tax Act).
When is there a personal reason for gifts and which exemption limits must be observed here?
This is also quite easy to define: there is always a personal reason if it only affects the employee or colleague who received the gift and not all employees. Conversely, Christmas is not a personal occasion and is therefore subject (since 2022) to 50 euros (per month, gross, including shipping). This applies, for example, to weddings, birthdays, the birth of a child or company anniversaries. Gifts must not exceed the 60 euro limit if they are to be tax-free. The same applies here as with the 35 euro limit: as soon as the 60 euro is exceeded, there is a benefit that is subject to income tax, unless you as the employer make use of the flat-rate taxation.
