These Gifts Say “Thank You!” in the Most Meaningful Way
If you have ever worked in an office, you know, behind every effective leader, there is an assistant with a bunch of sticky notes. Because let’s face it. There is just too much stuff to do in a day. Between attending meetings, compiling reports, and completing tasks, something is bound to fall through the cracks. That’s why no job can be effectively accomplished without the help of some help.
Cue the Administrative Professionals! --the Executive Assistants, the Office Managers, the Personal Secretaries. The Alfreds to your Bruce Waynes. The Jarvis’ to your Ironmen. They manage appointments, and field calls, prepare presentation materials, and basically remove all obstacles to optimal productivity.
It’s our humble opinion, not enough credit is given to these individuals, without whom we could not function. BUT, lucky for all of us, there is a special day set aside to remind us to show our appreciation for your right-hand man… or woman. This day is none other than Administrative Professionals’ Day. Celebrated annually on April 21st, this day reminds us to give a little something-something to the people who help us a BUNCH! As for what to get this special someone, we have some ideas.
Regardless of season or reason, you can’t go wrong with our Sliced DeLuxe® Fruitcake. Made with our secret blend of nuts and fruit—fruit like ripe cherries, juicy pineapple, lush papaya, and golden raisins—this dessert is ideal for anyone with a can-do attitude. Gently folded into our lightly sweetened honey batter, our DeLuxe® is a must-try treat. PLUS, because it’s pre-sliced, snacking in between creating meetings and sending emails, just became a lot easier.
#2 - DeLuxe® Petites
These wonderful, bite-sized snacks are made from the same delicious DeLuxe® Fruitcake recipe as our full-sized cakes. Made with our priority blend of lush papaya, golden raisins, juicy pineapples, and crunch pecans, our Petites are energy-packed nuggets of goodness. With a dozen Petites in each box, a box of these bites is the ideal indulgence during work hours. No fork or plate needed! Just pop a Petite and you’re ready to roll!!
Once upon a time, one of our bakers was carrying a tray of freshly baked DeLuxe® Petites across our kitchen when they accidentally tripped! Sending the tray full of Petites soaring through the air, our cakes landed in a bowl of melted chocolate. That’s how we stumbled upon the idea of our Chocolate Covered DeLuxe® Petites.
Okay, so that might not have happened. BUT, it’s a cute idea. We realized the only way we could make our DeLuxe® Fruitcake Petites any yummier is by adding chocolate. So, that’s what we did! We smothered our same great DeLuxe® Fruitcake recipe in premium, melted milk chocolate to create something out of this world. Plus, when something’s covered in chocolate, it makes fewer crumbs, right? That means a mess-free desk. There’s really no downside.
#4 - DeLuxe® Gift Set
There are very few things in life that go together as well as coffee and cake—chips and salsa. Salt and pepper. And, of course, you and your handy-dandy assistant. Perfect pairings like these come along so rarely, when you find a good match, HANG ON! So, as a symbolic nod to the working duo that gets things done, we’ve set our DeLuxe® Gift Set as #4 on our list of the best gifts to give on Administrative Professionals’ Day.
This Gift Set is just like you and your assistant—the perfect balance between sweet and sharp. Our DeLuxe® Fruitcake’s delicate sweetness perfectly offsets the bold richness of our signature labeled Chiconca Coffee. Perfect as a mid-morning snack or an afternoon pick-me-up, our DeLuxe® Gift Set is a match made in heaven.
Some Administrative Assistants aren’t just assistants. They are eager young professionals with lofty ambitions to learn and grow. Your relationship with them far exceeds that of simply boss-subordinate. It’s more of a kindred mentorship. A Mr. Miyagi and the karate kid, kinda situation. So, what kind of gift do you give here? Answer: our Texas Blonde Pecan Cake. Here’s why.
Made from our super-secret proprietary blend of fruits and nuts, our Pecan Cakes are irresistibly tasty. But, shhhhhh! Just between us, our Blonde is just our DeLuxe® minus the fruit on top. Think about it as a fruitcake with training wheels. Because some people just don’t know they love fruitcake and won’t even give it a try. So, just like Mr. Miyagi taught young Daniel to fight with the ruse of wax-on, wax-off, you can teach your assistant to love fruitcake with our Texas Blonde.
Even though it’s their special day, the valuable lessons never stop young grasshoppers.
So, there you have it, folks. Our top five recommended gifts for Administrative Professionals’ Day. This year, let’s remember to celebrate the individuals who help us get stuff done.
