Customer appreciation is a critical aspect of running a business. This strategy lets you distinguish yourself from countless faceless competitor companies in the market. Unlike them, you’re a brand worth people’s trust—almost a friend to your customers.
Okay, you say. I know that my customer relationships are important, but gifts? How do they fit this picture?
Clients are vital for business success. They turn into family members of your growing organization, supporting it through rough times and helping it thrive. Such a relationship needs continual dedication on your end to remain intimate and special.
Receiving a thoughtful gift makes customers feel seen and appreciated.
Finding the perfect gift can be challenging, though. Business relationships are touchy territory, and leaving a negative impression isn’t something that would help your company’s future endeavors. For that reason, you’re best off with something neutral and high-quality, such as a box of first-rate pastries.
We run into another issue.
Many people have food intolerances and restrictions. You also have nutritious preferences to consider. The treats you send don’t need to suit everybody’s standards, but they need to be safe, nutritious, and delicious.
That’s precisely why vegan treats from Layla’s Delicacies are ideal for customer appreciation.
What Are Layla’s Treats?
We at Layla’s Delicacies are passionate about baking. We use authentic Tunisian recipes to create exotic and culturally rich treats and deliver them to an American market.
Many of our vegan recipes have an assortment of nuts as their primary ingredient. That way, each bite provides a healthy serving of fat, protein, and fiber. What’s more, these nuts are not only organic; we source them from local farmers.
We also need to add sugar to our saccharine treats. Honey isn’t an option in our books, however. Instead, we use a delectable blend of citrus and rosewater for a sweetening syrup that doesn’t overpower the taste buds.
These ingredients fuse together for tasty treats free of any processed foods, artificial sugars, and additives. They come together in perfect harmony, free from any animal products or mass-sourced ingredients.
Our pastries are easy on the eyes, too. A team of food artisans bakes each piece from scratch. We take our time to intricately hand make each garnish and perfect each bite.
Doesn’t this sound like excellence you’d like to present to your loyal customers?

1: The Crunchy Samsa Pistachio
Our triangular Samsa Pistachio looks elegant and tastes incredible.
Samsa is a beloved treat in Tunisia, and many variations exist across Mediterranean cultures.
Our version consists of brik filo sheets with a moist mix of sweetened almonds and hazelnuts. As the name suggests, a crunchy layer of ground pistachios rounds off the pastry.
These pastries are perfect when you’re craving something light and sweet after a heavy meal. Traditionally, we’d serve them with mint tea.
Here’s what a happy customer who tried these treats as a customer appreciation gift had to say about them:
“While on a trip to Europe, I was presented with a small box of these treats as a welcome gift from my hotel. I loved them and immediately looked to see where I could buy them, as I assumed they were local to where I was staying. I was thrilled to find out they were made in the US, making shipping simple and inexpensive. I ordered some treats and they made it to my house right after I returned from my vacation. Loved having these yummy treats waiting to help me feel like I was still in Europe. I love that they are individually wrapped so I can choose how many I want without worrying about the others going stale. Will be ordering again.”
— Angela Bonner (Newark, US)
2: The Decadent Almond Finger
Almond Fingers originated in Morocco and made their way to American soil. Their shape and gorgeous creamy coloring already makes mouths water, and the texture is a favorite among customers.
To make this delicate treat, we start by blending almonds and hazelnuts into a rich paste. We then roll them into a crisp filo sheet to add another sensory layer to each bite.
This gentle, creamy treat pairs perfectly with coffee. It’s the ideal morning pastry, but you’ll find yourself reaching for another at any time of day.
A happy customer already did the marketing for us:
“I finally tried these delectable little bites of filo and almond. They are addictively delicious with the perfect delicate crunch. They come individually wrapped so you can order them in bulk and readily share a handful with friends or family, by placing them in one of your numerous boxes you have from all the other Layla's treats you have ordered previously!”
— Jacki F. (Bethesda, US)
3: The Delicate Bjewia Pistachio
Bjewia Pistachio is an authentic, cruelty-free dessert from Mediterranean coastal areas. It delivers a gluten-free blend of almond and pistachio, and is delicate and gently sweet on the palate.
The top layer of dried rose petals adds to this feast for all five senses, bringing a gorgeous pink finish and sweet, earthy flavors that linger on your tongue.
What’s more, it’s a no-bake treat, making it suitable even for paleo vegans.
In general, Bjewia is a favorite for celebrations. What better way to induce festive feelings in your customers?
Note: We don’t sell this sweet treat separately. You can find it in our Vegan Box, combined with a curated selection of other Layla’s delights.
4: The Light Baklava El Bey
Baklava is another traditional pastry. It originated in the former Ottoman empire and was perfected in Greece. Our version is completely vegan and cruelty-free.
Instead of the more traditional walnuts, we employ our favorite nuts—almond and pistachio. That way, each piece remains light and just the right blend of crunchy and creamy.
We switch up the dough with almonds for the outer layer to create a different sensory experience.
This one is another delicacy you’ll find in our assortment boxes, including the Vegan Box. You get a whole range of delectable Mediterranean pastries as potential tokens of appreciation.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is customer appreciation?
Customer appreciation is a customer-centric marketing strategy with the aim of building and fostering a relationship with your clients.
You’re expressing gratitude for the fact that your customers are continuing to choose your business. That very act encourages them to do the same in the future.
As a brand, you can show appreciation in several ways:
- By considering and acting upon feedback
- By introducing loyalty programs
- By organizing customer events
- By providing personalized gifts
How to personalize gifts for customers?
Customers see you as a large entity that isn’t very likely to understand them, and these little appreciation gifts are there to break that belief. Gifting treats made with care already helps you distinguish your brand, but here’s what else you can do:
- Think about the occasion.
- Consider the recipient.
- Add a handwritten note.
What if my customers aren’t vegan?
Of course, vegan customers are the ones who’ll appreciate our pastries and the world of options they represent the most. Still, they’re not the only group who benefits.
Think of all the ways you can communicate your business values through these treats.
You’re not sending a sweet treat that causes teeth issues and tummy aches. Instead, customers receive products made with natural ingredients that are good for the body.
Each piece is handcrafted with great care, too. They look, smell, and taste beautiful.
Appreciation emanates from each little treat. It’s on you as a business owner to figure out the rest.
What kind of packaging is available?
Our vegan originals (Samsa Pistachio and Almond Fingers) are available as separate purchases. You get them in small pastel boxes.
