An Unexpected Birthday Gift
It wasn't even my birthday, and the birthday gift definitely wasn't mine, but everyone thought it was.
It was just after second hour, and my 10th grade physics class was just coming to an end when over the intercom came a nasally message: “Mr. Robertson, please come to the teacher's lounge to collect your birthday gift.” The kids all rolled their eyes and snickered self-consciously. “Weird,” I said. “My birthdays not until October.”
Once inside the teacher's lounge I found a large, beautifully wrapped gift on the table next to the coffee station that said “To: Mr. Robertson, From All of Us at Sunset Heights.” Stunned, I looked around the room to ask someone what was going on.
“How interesting. Well, let's see what it is. No sense in it going to waste.” I untied the satin bow and unwrapped the beautiful packaging that was done just like my mom used to do it. Perfect corners, no creases or wrinkles. The shipping box underneath said GiftTree.com.
Birthday Gift Baskets With Features That Will Surprise You
“Huh, GiftTree, eh? Catchy name.” Inside the box I found a snack tower with beautiful ornate papering, and full of cookies, pretzels, popcorn, nuts. Seeing that I was impressed, Janis said they had set up an account through GiftTree.com because it just made sense to get the gifts from one place each month, and the overwhelming response they would get from the teachers. “Yeah, no kidding!” I said. “This is awesome!”
I got up from my desk and wandered back to the lounge to collect the rest of the gift, where I found an elderly man walking out of the lounge with the tower! Looks like Mr Robertson The Janitor had come to school to see an old friend and find out if there was a birthday gift waiting for him. I guess he really misses the place. I ducked into an adjacent storage closet until he was gone, and chided myself for even thinking about taking someone else's birthday gift. But those pretzels were so good…..
Good luck or not, let GiftTree.com really wow them next time you need to send an outstanding birthday gift.
