If you have a client, coworker, or employee with a nut allergy that you’d like to provide a gift for, shopping for food-related gifts could be intimidating if you don’t have a nut allergy yourself.
As nut allergies are so severe, you might not know where to begin. Luckily there are many companies that cater to the nut-free community and offer luxury food products made in dedicated nut-free facilities and nut-free gift baskets.
If a nut-allergic client or a nut-allergic coworker will be attending the company holiday party, making sure they’ll have a variety of dedicated nut-free facility snacks to choose from at the party (or holiday meeting) should go a long way in making your clients and employees feel welcomed and appreciated.
I’ve sourced a list of nut-free food gifts that would make excellent corporate gifts.
You can bring them into the office to leave around for a snack, to the holiday party, or give as a token of appreciation after working together on a business project.

1. Small Vermont Nut Free Variety Basket
Vermont Nut Free Chocolates has an entire product line free from peanuts and tree nuts. Everything is packaged inside a dedicated nut-free facility.
And with nut allergies, manufacturing policies are important. Products created inside the same facility as non-nut products can still create cross-contamination that could be harmful to those with allergies.
Even when no actual nuts are present inside chocolate, it doesn’t always mean the chocolate is safe to eat.
When buying chocolate for your nut-free client, it’s best to go with chocolate that is made in a dedicated nut-free facility, aware of the nut allergic community and their needs.
Vermont Nut Free Chocolates is a great choice for corporate gifts as all their products are labeled as nut-free and they have personalization available.
They offer a service where they can ship the products directly to your client with a basket and ribbons as well as a personalized message.

When purchasing items for a nut-allergic client, it’s best to make choices from products that have been made in dedicated nut-free facilities and have clear labeling on their packaging.
Items that have a “may contain” label are not safe due to potential cross-contamination. Because allergies vary in different severities from person to person, can increase in severity without warning, and can oftentimes be life-threatening, it’s best to assume your client or coworker has a serious allergy and only purchase items from dedicated nut-free facilities.
Ideally, when gift-giving, it’s ideal to be giving gifts that have their labels clearly presented so your recipient can feel comfortable. Seeing that their gift was made in a dedicated nut-free facility will give them peace of mind.
