And for each couple entering wedded bliss, the pressure is on to come up with unique wedding gift ideas for to celebrate the happy couple. Sure, a great wedding gift is an opportunity to congratulate the newlyweds, but what makes a truly memorable gift? We’ve got some tips and tactics to help you come up with great wedding gift ideas that leave a lasting impression as they officially begin their new life together.   1. Go big – splurge on a luxury brand and spoil those newlyweds! They’ve put a lot of work in to planning their special day, so why not give them a gift that shows how much you appreciate it? Our Opus One Luxury Wine Basket is a prestigious collection of gourmet delicacies paired with two bottles of Napa Valley’s finest wines.     2. Give a long-lasting gift they’ll cherish forever! Flowers fade, gift cards get used… give those newlyweds a gift they’ll remember and enjoy time and time again. The Admiral Three Piece Bar Gift is an elegant set of stainless steel tools with bone handles and is a perfect addition to the home bar cart.     3.

Meet The GiftTree Team: Adam, Our PPC Marketing Analyst

When GiftTree works its online marketing magic, Adam Bullock is the man behind the curtain. His expertise in PPC Marketing Analysis is essential to the way our beautiful gifts reach our great customers. We caught up with Adam last week to gain a little insight on his inspirations, aspirations, and what brought him to the world of online marketing.   Tell us a little about your family! I’m fortunate to have my immediate family all within a 10-mile radius, which is what I’ve always dreamed of! My wife and I live with our old English bulldog Winston and two cats, Rufio and Cleo. I have an older brother and an identical twin brother (and yes, we played tricks on people when we were younger). We’re rule-followers (to a fault), so nothing too scandalous ever happened…   What would you say you’re most passionate about? I love the feeling of people pulling for you, so whether it’s my home life, family life, or work life, I’m passionate about being a dependable companion, family member, and teammate. My other passion is working with children. I’m a mentor through 4Results Mentoring, a local organization in Vancouver, Washington, that provides services to vulnerable youth. It’s been an incredible experience, and I would encourage anyone who wanted to give back to his or her community to look into becoming a mentor (they’ll even train you!).   What’s your favorite thing to do on the weekend? My weekends are my time to be active. I’ve been training for my first marathon, so lately the weekends have been full of running! And one night every weekend...

Meet The GiftTree Team: President Martin McClanan

MEET THE PRESIDENT: MARTIN McCLANAN With professional experience in marketing and an insatiable passion for food and fine wine, Martin McClanan recently joined GiftTree as our new President. We sat down with Martin to gain some insight on his outlook for GiftTree, what gives him inspiration, and his expertise on the art of giving the perfect gift. What brought you to GiftTree? Tell us a little about your journey into the professional world of food & wine gifts.   I was lucky enough to work at an early pioneer restaurant in college called The Trellis in Williamsburg, VA.  There I learned about the importance of top-quality ingredients, and started to learn about wine from a very passionate group of people. I was so inspired by them that I decided to chart my career course into the wine business. I’ll always be grateful to Tom Powers, Marcel Desaulnier and John Curtis for teaching me about the joys and importance of real food and good wine. From there, I’ve had the good fortune of living and working in some great food towns including New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and now Portland, OR, which continues to inspire me. My big project right now outside of work is as a board member of the James Beard Public Market in Portland. We are working to design, fund and build a permanent 7-day a week market in Portland as the epicenter of the Oregon/Washington food system.   What drives and inspires you most about GiftTree?   Gift giving is the most fun part of e-commerce.  If you can make it possible for someone to...
