San Carlo launches alternative to Christmas party, in a box

With huge uncertainty around social gatherings this year Christmas office parties are under threat of cancellation.

Now, Manchester-based San Carlo restaurants group, which has six venues across the region, is serving up an appetising alternative for employers looking to thank their teams this festive season.

For the same budget per head as the average Christmas set lunch or dinner with a drink – around £40 – firms can send their employees a San Carlo Christmas Celebration Gift Box.

The luxury hand-filled boxes contain everything needed to embrace the party spirit whatever the distance and wherever and whenever needed, at price options to suit all budgets.

Each box comprises: Bespoke San Carlo turquoise gift box with hand-tied branded ribbon; San Carlo gold embossed gift card and wallet, card preloaded with £30, £40 or £50 to be used at all San Carlo restaurants (except Selfridges and House of Fraser) which can be redeemed within 12 months; a choice of bottle – mini Prosecco DOC or San Carlo’s own label pre-mixed Negroni cocktail; gift bag of confectionery.

Gift boxes are from £40 and are available to pre-order now, shipping in November and December.

The boxes will be hand-filled to order and shipped to company offices or employees’ homes on request – perfect for treating an employee whether working from home or at the office.

Marcello Distefano, San Carlo Restaurants managing director, said: “With large gatherings of people likely to be restricted for the foreseeable future we’re all having to rethink how we thank and celebrate with our colleagues this Christmas.

“This comes during what has already been a very stressful year for so many.

“Sending a gift box is a simple way to deliver a message of thanks wherever needed, people can choose to celebrate as and how they wish at a time that’s best for them.”
