    We Use a Latte Paper Cups!

    July 22nd, 2008 Carrie

    Being a native of Seattle, WA and still living in the great Northwest, I am a regular at my neighborhood Starbucks. My drink of choice is a grande x-tra hot nf latte, or an iced nf latte if it’s a hot day. Unless of course I’m getting coffee for people at work, then it’s much [...]

    Bad Pet Habits

    June 17th, 2008 admin

    Check out GiftTree’s new video. I think it’s proof that the GiftTree team knows how to have a good time. Yes, it may be a little silly, but it was fun to make and I can’t help but laugh out loud every time I watch it. We certainly can’t be blamed for taking ourselves too [...]

    Save the Earth – One Fax At a Time

    April 24th, 2008 admin

    I have a printer and a fax machine in my office. The fax machine recently ran amok. It was a simple fix, just a quick cartridge change and a cleaning, but the machine was down for about a week. After I fixed the problem, the fax queue began to unload. Sheet after sheet spewed forth [...]

    Paper or Plastic?

    April 23rd, 2008 Carrie

    Hopefully your answer will be “Neither, I brought my own.” In an effort to reduce, reuse and recycle, most stores and markets nowadays offer reusable shopping bags at a very affordable price. The idea is to eliminate the use and disposal of plastic bags that fill our landfills. A lot of times the reusable shopping [...]

    My Airport is Better Than Your Airport

    April 16th, 2008 admin

    May I brag a little bit? My job permits me to travel to various places in the world. I’ve had the pleasure (and the dismay) of visiting numerous airports. Home base is Portland, OR. I must say that the Portland airport has got to be the nicest, most traveler friendly airport I have come across. [...]

    GiftTree Will Walk for the Animals

    April 16th, 2008 Carrie

    GiftTree employees not only love their community, but they love their dogs! We have 7-10 dogs in the office daily…what would a day here be like without Soda or Harper begging to go outside and fetch the tennis ball? So it is appropriate that we will participate in the 17th annual Walk/Run for the Animals [...]

    John Oshin – Portland Camp Fire Camp Fire USA Portland Metro Council is very, very grateful to GiftTree.com for their generous donation of packaging expertise and materials for our August auction.

    Fundraising is the Name of the Game

    March 26th, 2008 admin

    One of the most popular fundraising methods for not-for-profit organizations are auctions or silent auctions. There are typically an abundance of donated gifts from the community and although every contributor has the best of intentions, packaging often goes by the wayside. And as we all know, packaging can make or break the “sale.” GiftTree recently had [...]
