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. With Halloween approaching next Tuesday, we thought we’d give a shout-out to all the teachers working hard to make it exciting for the kids. Children look forward to Halloween all year, and going to school that day is as much fun as the trick-or-treating itself, thanks to teachers! After a day of arts and crafts, pumpkin carving, costume contests and games, it’s time to go trick-or-treating, show off their costumes and collect candy from the neighbors. Ghosts, goblins, witches and monsters don’t seem so scary after such a terrific day.   If you’re a teacher and you’re looking for some fun classroom Halloween activities, TeacherVision has some great ideas! One of our favorites is this adorable set of Halloween patterns including jack-o-lanterns, ghosts and bats for the kiddos to cut out, color and decorate. They can hang their creations up around the classroom to make the room extra spooky for the whole week!   If you’re a parent who’d like to thank your child’s teachers for all their hard work, why not send a delicious Halloween treat or bouquet? GiftTree’s collection of Halloween treats and flowers are sure to light up the lounge with joy.   Comment Below Do you remember any fun activities your teachers planned...
Create Your Own Halloween Party Platters

Create Your Own Halloween Party Platters

Halloween is the season for frightfully good treats and ghoulishly good decorations. So when it comes to creating your own Halloween party platters, don’t skimp on the creativity! We have a few ideas to turn your Halloween party into a monster mash. Mummy Hotdogs Ghosts and goblins of all sizes will love this super fast (and adorable!) snack. Begin by preheating oven to 375°F. Unroll a tube of dinner roll dough and divide into four rectangles. Cut each rectangle lengthwise into thin strips. Wrap several strips of dough around each hotdog to look like bandages. Bake until dough is lightly golden brown and hotdogs are hot. Add eyes by cutting out two tiny circles of provolone or other white cheese. Please next to each other near one end, and top with a small black olive bit on each. Optional: Add a half slice of American cheese before wrapping hotdog with dough.   Creepy Pizza Bagel Bites As a quick appetizer, turn pizza bagel bites into a spooky, savory treat. Kids will love help making mummified bagel bites, and can begin by slathering your favorite bitesized bagels with your favorite pizza sauce. Layer thin strips of mozzarella to look like mummy wrapping. Add olive eyes and bake until cheese is melted and the sauce is hot. For those who prefer a few more olives on their pizza, a creepy crawly spider design is as easy as 1-2-3. Begin by layering mozzarella on top of sauced bagel bites. Cut several olives in half lengthwise, and slice several more olives into rings. Cut the rings into half again creating half circles. Place a couple of half olives on the bagel cut side down, and add four ring halves on each side...
Spooktacular Halloween Treats for the Office

Spooktacular Halloween Treats for the Office

Three or 93, everyone loves a good Halloween treat. And with so much creativity surrounding the season, there’s no reason why your goodies shouldn’t be gruesomely, ghoul-ishly good. So here are a few tricks to great Halloween treats for your office party! Build-Your-Own Caramel Apple Bar Caramel apples are a staple of the season, and with a build-your-own caramel apple bar, co-workers can create their own perfect treat! Begin by slicing a variety of apples into wedges (the smaller pieces will allow everyone to make a few different creations). Then, place caramel, melted chocolate and other sauces in crockpots or over tea light warmers to keep them gooey throughout the day. Arrange toppings such as crushed peanuts, sprinkles, mini candies and crushed cookies into muffin tins to keep them organized. Co-workers can pair their favorite combination of apples, sauces and toppings. Be sure to have plenty of skewers available because these easy, delicious treats definitely won’t last! Easy-Peasy Monster Cookies Short on time? Whip up a quick batch of your favorite cookie dough (or purchase some at the store – we won’t tell!) Roll out the dough and get to work with Halloween cookie cutters. Schmear a nice goopy layer of frosting on top and voila! As an added bonus, if you’re even shorter on time, grab extra frosting, sprinkles and other cookie decorations while at the store and let your co-workers decorate their own treat! Spooky Punch Add a creepy punch to your punch with a floating ice hand. Begin by whipping up a batch of your favorite punch. Thoroughly wash a rubber glove, turn inside out, and...
