Looking for holiday treats to give employees? Look no further. They've worked hard all year and it makes sense to reward them for their efforts. That's why we've scurried up these gift ideas you can order online just in time for that company party or before everyone takes a much-needed respite.

1. Good Karmal Double Caramel Sampler ($22)

Packaged for the holidays, these gluten-free snacks come in a few unusual flavors like Chocolate Sea Salt, Café Caramel, and Butter Rum. The packages include a written keepsake note that's similar to what you'd find in a fortune cookie.

2. Nuts.com Box of Winter Wonderland ($40)

The Box of Winter Wonderland comes in a pre-wrapped holiday box with an interesting blend of butter toffee pecans, salted pistachios in the shell, and mint chocolate espresso beans. It's a total of four pounds of healthier snacks. One perk? If you order, they ship out the same day.

3. JK Chocolate Single Gift Box ($14)

In this gift pack, JK Chocolates, named after owners Julie and Karleen, includes one jar of their Microchip Cookies in your choice of flavors like Peanut Butter With Sea Salt, Midnight Chocolate Chip, and Pecan Sweeties. The box has a bow and includes a notecard for you to add a holiday message.

4. Hickory Farms Party Planner ($46)

This gift box has a hidden perk. If you buy them for your employees, the company donates $5 per sale to the charity No Kid Hungry. The set includes aged cheddar blends, almonds and cashews, sausage rolls, and spreads. It's also one of Hickory Farms' highest-rated gift sets.

5. Berried in Chocolate One Dozen All Dark Berries ($50)

Berried in Chocolate has a homespun angle. Shari Fitzpatrick, the founder and CEO, runs the business near her strawberry farm in California. She designs the packaging and writes books (that are also hand-dipped in chocolate). The pack includes 12 dipped strawberries.

6. Merci European Chocolates ($10-$12)

Each one of these packs of chocolates costs just $10-$12 and comes in assorted flavors. The box itself has a holiday theme and opens easily to reveal what's inside.

7. BakeMeAWish.com's Holiday Freedom Cake ($75)

This gourmet holiday cake is made from scratch and has thick layers of chocolate, a holiday emblem, and red and white flakes on top. When you order one, a second cake is mailed either to a veteran in a hospital here in the U.S. or to a soldier serving overseas.

8. The Chef Shelf Touch of Texas Gift Basket ($30)

The Chef Shelf uses handpicked gifts from Texas, including chocolate-covered, hand-roasted nuts, coffee and caramels from local producers, popcorn, and peach BBQ sauce, for this pack. The idea is to give the recipient a mix of Texas-produced treats as a sampler.

9. Brooklyn Bean Roastery Red Velvet ($8)

This 12-count coffee package for the Keurig coffeemaker is a fine blend of the classic Red Velvet holiday cake flavoring with a rich dark roast coffee. The company also makes a sweet and spicy blend called the Gingerbread Man, also sold in a 12-count package.

10. Dancing Deer Baking Company Holiday Basket Bonanza ($75)

A mix of shortbreads, espresso chocolate chip cookies, caramel-pecan brownies, and other treats makes this a compact but extensive gift set. You can arrange to use your corporate branding on the ribbons, hang tags, and even on the cookie packages.
