Taking it Personal

I love the fact that I can send a gift for almost any occasion, and I can personalize it too! Whether I want a name, a date, an initial or a sentiment, adding a personal touch to the actual gift in my opinion makes it a touch more special. This year for example, my husband and I are sending his daughter the Amazing Grace Engravable Wind Chimes. The wind chimes play the first six notes heard in Amazing Grace (which happens to be a favorite hymn of hers), and we’ll have her name & birth date engraved on the wooden wind catcher. It’s very nice to have the option of personalizing a gift like...

Brandy – My Favorite Gift

Brandy Brown, Customer Service Representative There are many gifts that I love at Gift Tree. One that I think is really cool is the Around the World Wine Chest. I’m kind of into that nautical look and I adore things like this. The trunk has that old world map print on it that can be displayed long after the goodies are gone. And believe me, the goodies will not last long. I have tasted many of the goodies in this basket and they are delicious! One other gift that I really like is the Engraveable Ice Cream Holder. My Dad loves his ice cream. He has a bowl of ice cream every night, occasionally sharing with his dogs. So, when the Ice Cream Holder came to Gift Tree, I thought what the perfect gift! So, for his birthday, he will be getting his own ice cream holder with his name engraved on the front. The designers at Gift Tree are always coming up with new gifts and designs, so if you ask me next week what my favorite gift is, I’m sure it will...

Wendi – My Favorite Gifts

Wendi Estrada, Operations Manager I’ve worked at GiftTree for over 5 years now and I would have to say my “favorite” gift has changed throughout the years. I do believe our current line of gifts is high end and very unique. I have a few different favorites. One new area we are delving into here at GiftTree is personalized gifts. I think our Engraved Chopsticks are a wonderful gift. It is a set of two very stylish chopsticks that are engraved upon. Great for weddings, birthdays and “just because gifts.” I recently bought a set for my sister and she thought they were a great gift. In the baby gift baskets category, I have a couple of different faves. First one being the Twilight Turtle (we have one of these at my house). It’s just a fun nightlight, great gift for younger kids. Both my 2 year old and my 5 year old like the Twilight Turtle. And who could resist the Little Froggy Bath Tote? Cute! Frogs go well for either boy or girl and the red leather tote is great for storage later. If you need a gift for your mom or someone who enjoys tea, the Duet Tea Set by Tea Forte is a gorgeous gift. The teas are wonderful and the cups and tea bag holders are very stylish. I do have one more gift that I really enjoy and I think it would be very impressive for the recipient and that is the Vintage Wine Barrel. This gift is very unique in the gift basket market and unlike many baskets I think it is...

Can You Bee-lieve This?

Burt’s Bees has long been one of my favorite products, and the Mommy and Baby– Cute as Can Bee basket is simply fantastic. You not only get a ton of Burt’s Bees stuff for new mom and baby, but NOW there is the option to personalize the ribbon on the basket. You can add the newborn’s name or date of birth, or anything you want. How neat is that? The ribbon is quality enough that you can save it in your baby’s scrap book as a memento. A great gift basket just got...

For the Couple Who Has Everything!

My uncle recently got married to a woman whom he had been dating for seventeen years and had already built a home together. Which isn’t necessarily the norm for the general population but I do notice an increase in couples getting married or remarried later in life. So what do you get a middle age couple that already has practically everything? The Monogrammed VIP Silver Rabbit Corkscrew! My aunt and uncle love having dinner parties and often serve wine. What a better way to honor their union than by engraving the plaque with their initials. I think this is a great wedding gift for any couple, but especially those who have...

Giving the Gift of “Cool”

My 12 year old grand daughter is hard to shop for, but there’s this really great item I’m sending her for her birthday next month. The Leatherette ID Bracelet is perfect for several reasons. I can have her name engraved on it PLUS it’s silver & black (her favorite colors right now). You should see the box it comes in too. It’s a super neat gift all the way around, and I can’t wait for her to get...
