Tea Time!

When I was little I loved spending time with my grandma. I would go to her house and spend the day shopping and having girl time. Those were the best times. After a long day I would get ready for bed in one of my grandpa’s t-shirts that was 6 times to big for me. My grandma would always make me a cup of peppermint tea with a splash of honey and a cookie of my choice! During holidays and birthdays it is so hard to find something for my grandma that she will enjoy. This lady has almost everything! GiftTree.com is always coming out with new gifts that are amazing! New to the website is this awesome basket called Traditional Teatime Basket. This beautiful basket is great for any tea lover, it has so much to chose from! It comes with several different flavors of tea, honey and shortbread cookies complete with a teapot and cup. All you need is the water! This is such a perfect gift for her and I know as soon as she opens it she will know that I cherish those days when I was little. Making her smile is the best feeling...

Mom’s Traditions

As a fairly new Mom, I try to come up with exciting traditions and projects to do with my 3 year old daughter. When she gets older, I want her to remember all those fun times she had with me, and to really appreciate the little things we do together. Spring is finally here, and she loves to pick flowers. We bought a huge bag of mixed flower seeds to plant just so when they bloom she can pick all she wants! We planted them together in our back yard and each day she runs outside to see if they have grown. I was browsing our site and found the perfect gift for Mother’s Day! The Mother’s Day Cookie Bouquet comes with a dozen of the most delicious cookies from a local bakery, and the cutest little flower pot for Mom’s! How perfect is that? When I was little I used to plant flowers with my Mom too, and it’s just one of those things you really appreciate when you get older, all the fun times you spent together. What traditions do you have with your Mom that you really appreciate...

Finding that Perfect Gift

Each year I struggle to come up with new fun gifts for my little brother. 12 year old boys are much harder to shop for than you may think! He is just coming out of the toy stage and starting to get into new hobbies. I always have to ask myself, what can I get that he is going to love and use for a long time? It definitely takes some research to find that gift that he is going to be proud to show everyone and let them know that his big sister gave it to him.  I was browsing through our new products and found that perfect gift I was looking all over for..the Inspirational Pencil Set with Free Embossing! It is a great leather book complete with 12 assorted colored pencils, a sharpener and a spiral sketchpad with plain white paper. The best part about it is you can include free engraving! Most 12 year olds I know would be ecstatic to have their own personal notebook with their complete name engraved on it. When I gave it to him he gave me a big hug and said “Thanks, sis!”. Now he has the perfect set up to  pursue his drawing hobby,  and he will have a constant reminder of his cool sister that gave it to him....
