Being an employee here at GiftTree, I’m always pleased with the variety of gift baskets and gifts that I am able to send for any occasion, but I get especially excited about birthdays! Everybody cherishes that one day a year when they celebrate how long they’ve been on this earth. It’s not an anniversary where they share it with someone; it’s all about that person. A day where loved ones gather around to celebrate with birthday presents, some for laughs, some for thoughtfulness. However, it can be hard to come up with the right gift, especially depending on who is celebrating. Year after year, you may find it difficult to figure out what exactly your loved one would like for their birthday. But like I said, GiftTree has a birthday gift selection that has a little something for everyone and is sure to help you out!
I would suggest a gift or gift basket that contains items that embodies the person with whom you are giving it, things for which they are passionate. Pick trinkets and treats that speak directly to that person and will mean a lot to them. Here a few of my suggestions.
- For the health nut you can send him a deliciously sweet fruit basket. Like our Delightful Combination Basket. It is filled with domestic fruits like crisp apples, oranges, bananas, pears, and ripe grapes combined with gourmet items including nuts, crackers, and a little bit of chocolate if they want to indulge. There is also the Feng Shui Birthday Box, with gifts promoting the recipient to live in harmony with their environment so that the energy surrounding them works for them rather than against them. What better birthday wish for that health conscious person than the gift of positive energy and good Chi!
- For the work-aholic, offer some pampering with a spa basket such as the Luxury Foam Blending Spa Kit. This gift allows them to combine scents to get exactly the aroma they are looking for, and almost nothing can get you in the mood to relax then the sensory perception of scent. Or, you go in the opposite direction and get them something for work like, the Engraved Copper Pendulum for the Office. As the pendulum swings back and forth in a calming, rhythmic motion, the long-lasting oscillation creates an intricate design with fine detail and variation that is a feast for the eyes and soothing to the soul. It is definitely a great conversation starter that could break the ice in a business meeting.
- For the Giver, you know the person who loves to give gifts and to share everything. A wonderful idea would be a gift basket full of gourmet items for them to be generous with, like the Toast of Broadway Gourmet Gift Basket. Filled to the max with over 30 delicious treats, including Comfort Collection Fudge, East Shore Pretzels & Dipping Mustard, Vanilla Chocolate Chunk Cookies, Tortuga Rum Cake, Lindt Excellence Extra Dark Chocolate, Black Tie Almonds, and Hathaway’s Chocolate Covered Fruit, Oogie’s Gourmet Seasoned Popcorn, Aaron Bell Spicy Guadalajara Mix, Hathaway’s Toffee Peanuts, Cassil & Klein Italian Biscotti, Old Fashioned Salt Water Taffy, Seattle’s Black Espresso Dark Chocolate, Key Lime Cookies, and so much more. Another great idea would be one of our many towers always filled with a great variety of sharable delights. They will be in heaven with the bounty that they will have to offer either at their party or at the office.
- For the person who needs some attention on their birthday there is always one of our many Birthday Balloon Bouquets that you can add extras too like a box of chocolates, a teddy bear, or flowers. Have the Bouquet sent to their work so that everyone can, ooooh and ahhhhh over them. There is also the Birthday Wishes Basket that can be sent with a personalized ribbon, an extra-soft teddy bear and an array of birthday gifts, including a colorful porcelain mug decorated with birthday balloons inside and out, a coffee-scented candle, and a CD of birthday music. Fifty unique birthday songs from Swing to Country, Disco to Tchaikovsky, that can be the soundtrack played for the person entire day.
A person’s birthday is an opportunity to show your love and appreciation for them. Give them something that is sure to put a smile on their face, and a birthday song in their heart!
