Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Happy Cinco de Mayo! Ten minutes to the south of GiftTree’s headquarters is the nation’s best Cinco de Mayo celebration. 152 years ago, Mexicans successfully fended off an invasion by France’s Napoleon III. 30 years ago, Portland, Oregon became the sister city of Guadalajara, Mexico. So we celebrate each year with not only tacos, guacamole, and margaritas, but with mariachi bands, authentic handmade products from Mexico, and, today a naturalization ceremony for the region’s newest citizens. It’s a happy time. See the full story here and enjoy the...

Best-Selling Mother’s Day Baskets Guaranteed to Impress

How can you really impress Mom this year? If you’re like me it comes as a challenge, so you tend to play it safe with something that thousands of Americans just like yourself have sent to Mom in the past. Here is a review of the Mother’s Day gift baskets that have been the most popular with our customers for the last five years, so you know you’re giving Mom something she’ll enjoy, that also keeps up with fresh trends and developments. If you are someone who needs a time-tested gift that you know will impress her, here’s our cream of the crop. Toast of California Wine Basket This is one of our most popular baskets even when it’s not Mother’s Day, so it comes as no surprise that we see them fly off the shelves around this time of year too. Mom gets to enjoy a bottle of red and a bottle white with delectable European chocolates, gourmet cookies, seasoned popcorn and so many more treats for pairing. The woven basket will last for years and the satin ribbon just makes the whole thing pop. Spa Baskets and Soaps Each year we try to pamper Mom a little more than the last. This includes offering premium spa gifts like this year’s Stress Relief Spa Retreat and the ever popular Anjolie Aromatherapy Spa Soap set that we’ve had for years. Both offer Mom a luxurious way to relax and finally get some time to herself. Gift Towers OK, so they’re not technically baskets (sue me!). But each year for the last five years our Mother’s Day gourmet towers have...

Easter Gifts for Her

In the first part of this two-part series I wrote about finding a way to dote upon Dads for Easter and keeping us Dads included in all the festivities of Easter Sunday instead of in the mundane background where we usually end up. But what about the moms, wives and girlfriends among us who are often the ones who do the most for Easter, take the kids shopping for new clothes, make handmade baskets and prepare all the scrumptious food? Let’s find a way to honor them too. No reason to wait until Mother’s Day! And even the single ladies deserve some love on Easter. Here are five Easter gift ideas for women. 1. Vineyard Select Wine Basket Charming, popular, and a bestselling basket year-round, it’s the perfect Easter gift for her. Why not help your special lady celebrate with a nice combination of wine and snacks to relax with after the busy day is done? Better still, send the basket with a note that says “You deserve a picnic!” and give her the opportunity to get out in the fresh air while enjoying indulgent gourmet delicacies and premium wine. Your choice of red or white (or both) comes with sweet and savory pairings including Aaron Bell Rosemary Crackers, Auberge Camembert cheese, Jalapeno Cheese Straws, and Seattle Chocolates. 2.Organic Tea for Me Gift Set If she’s not a wine drinker, indulgence and relaxation can still be hers to enjoy. In this basket, an upscale presentation includes a luxurious brown “Tea for Me” nested tea pot and tea cup, Republic of Tea Organic Green Earl Greyer, roasted almonds, lemon tea...
