Welcome to Why We Gift Wednesday! Each week, we celebrate one of the thousands of reasons that we truly love giving. Whether it’s honoring the relationships that we have, feeling grateful for an occasion or a special time of year, or relishing life’s simple joys, Why We Gift Wednesday is all about giving and generosity – the expression of appreciation for life’s many happy moments.
Is the weather finally warm enough to have a picnic in your part of the country? We don’t know about you, but here in the Pacific Northwest, the times where we can get outside and enjoy warm, sunny weather are unfortunately somewhat few and far between. The Pacific Northwest is not for the feint of heart, especially this year, when us Oregonians saw rain and cold temperatures every day for three months in a row. So now that it’s May and the trees are green again, the flowers are blooming and the weather is getting warmer every day, it’s time to break out the picnic basket and enjoy some food and wine on a blanket in the sun.
Are you looking for some perfect picnic supplies or gourmet goodies to spread out at your next picnic? From masterful menus and spreads of savory sophistication, GiftTree has some complete picnics and perfect coolers that are ready-packed with gourmet fare for your next splendor in the grass.
Premium Cheese Tasting Experience – bring this spread on your next picnic! It’s a cheese tasting experience unlike any other. Four artisan cheeses are included in this gift. One of our favorites is Comte Extra, a sweet cow’s milk cheese made only in the summer, when the cows feed on the sweet grasses in the Jura Mountains on the French-Swiss border. Served with crispbread, quince pâté, barrel-aged balsamic and orange blossom honey, this is a picnic that won’t be forgotten any time soon.
Picnic with Personalized Blanket A picnic on the grass or sand is a lovely gesture of well wishing! The topside of the blanket is made of soft polyester fleece and the underside is water-resistant to protect the blanket from getting dampened or soiled. The Blanket Tote unfolds easily and refolds into a convenient carry tote featuring a closing flap complete with a zippered pocket, and an adjustable shoulder strap. The gift is made all the better when it arrives with a filled picnic basket, overflowing with a bottle of Napa Valley red wine, smoked gouda cheese, dry cured sausage, olives, a cutting board, cheese knife and even shatterproof wine glasses — all the delicious makings of a perfect picnic on a sunny afternoon.
