Why We Gift Wednesday (Long Distance BFF Edition)

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. This Why We Gift Wednesday is going out to all the long distance BFFs… you know the ones! When life gets in the way – kids, careers – long distance friends are those special people in our lives that, even though we see each other only a few times a year at the most, every time we talk on the phone we pick up right where we left off. Do you have a long distance best friend? Pick up the phone and text them today, let them know you’re thinking about them! It’s an easy way to brighten a day. And if you feel like brightening their day even more, why not send them a little something on National Best Friends Day, coming up on June 8th?  GiftTree’s got a perfect collection of gifts to send to your long distance friends – sending a gift you know your best friend will love is always a kind gesture that says, “You’re the best and I appreciate you!”.  Make it a great gift by remembering the golden rule of gifting: the best gifts are the ones bought with the recipient in mind! So consider their interests when choosing your gifts – are they a fine food fanatic, a chocolate...

Why We Gift Wednesday (Lunch Date Edition)

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. This Why We Gift Wednesday is sweet and simple – it’s the lunch date edition! Meeting up for lunch is all about taking time out of a stressful week to sit down, get caught up on each other’s lives and enjoy the company of close friends, co-workers or your significant other. There isn’t always enough time to slow down and really pay attention to the people around is, but when we do, it has a big impact on our relationships that can otherwise feel a bit neglected. When we take the time to listen to each other and confide in people we trust, we’re showing our friends that we value the connection we share. If there’s someone you wish you could meet up with but just can’t make it happen due to distance or schedules that can’t align, you can still let them know you’re thinking of them! Pick up the phone and shoot them a text or call, write them an email, stick a good old fashioned letter in the mail or maybe even send them a gift! With everything that’s going on in the world and in our country these days, make it a priority to tell your friends, family and colleagues that they mean something...
