New for Spring!

Ah, Spring. How I love this time of year. It stays lighter outside longer, the flowers start blooming, and the birds start chirping. It’s definitely my favorite season! Typically around April, I like to tinker around in the yard when it’s nice, pulling weeds, planting flowers, getting rid of any signs of winter. I also always look forward to our spring time gifts here at GiftTree because I know there will be something I want! This year is no exception. This Handcrafted Birdhouse is so super cute! It was a featured gift on the 2011 Oprah’s “O List” and is environmentally friendly. The attention to detail on the birdhouse is so amazing, from the roof down to the flower box on the side of the house. I have the perfect spot to hang it on my front porch, and I can’t wait to get some little visitors....

Interview with the Sweet n’ Salty Snack Tower

I hear that this is a momentous occasion, Sweet n’ Salty Snack Tower. Call me Salty. And you’re absolutely right, Ben, I’m the first gift basket ever to be interviewed. I hate to break it to you, but technically I think you’re a snack tower. Tower shmower. Same thing. Well, I think The Grand Gourmet would disagree with you there. The Grand Gourmet? Let me tell you something about the Grand Gourmet. He’s threatened. That’s right. He knows I’ve got something he doesn’t. And that would be? Well, I’m taller. Anything else? Uh…Cookies? Yeah, cookies! All kinds! I’ve got Vanilla Frosted, Chocolate Chip, Snickerdoodle, Peanut Butter, and Lemon Blueberry. I’ve got gourmet white cheddar popcorn too and spicy snack mix. I think there are some awesome citrus gems and raspberry tea cookies in here somewhere too. Yeah, here they are. I’ll put those up against Grand Gourmet’s biscotti any day. Grand Gourmet does have Godiva Chocolate, you know. *Sigh* Don’t remind...

An Interview with Eggling…

Hello, Eggling. Eggling? Oh, yes, sorry. I thought you were here to crack me open. Why would I want do that? Well, apparently word has been getting around about the seeds that have been planted inside me. Everyone wants to crack me open with some metallic utensil and get those little plants growing. I take it you aren’t in favor of this. Look, how would you feel in my position? I see your point. This isn’t a Ridley Scott sci-fi movie, you know. No, it’s significantly cuter. *sigh* That’s the whole problem. Japanese people have been buying me up by the dozen for years, and now GiftTree will be shipping me around the world for people to take a whack at. Is that all you have to do? Crack open your top? Well, in theory I would need water and sun too, but it’s not like…hey, what are you doing with that spoon? Is that a watering can? Hey! Hey! *interview cut off* We’re making Eggling grow!

St. Patrick’s Cookie Pail

Coming from strong Irish ancestry, and with a name like McBurney you’ve got to love all things Irish, and I do! That’s why I was so excited to see our new St. Patrick’s Cookie Pail filled with traditional shortbread cookies. ‘Tis a taste of Ireland to be sure. It’s funny how flavors and aromas can bring back fond memories, I’ve traveled to Ireland many times over the years and have enjoyed “taking tea” with my Irish friends. The Irish are wonderful at making you feel welcome, putting on the kettle and laying out a spread of lovely sweets, and shortbread is often one of them. I can tell you from experience that these buttery, lightly golden cookies are authentically Irish and melt in your mouth good, reminding me of those I’ve enjoyed many a time at a darling little tea cottage in Kilkenny, Ireland. They are pure Irish magic. If these shamrock cookies weren’t enough, I know the recipient of this gift will love the soft green reusable metal pail with handle, I figure I’m going to plant mine with a wee shamrock plant or maybe use it to carry gardening tools and gloves when Spring gardening time arrives….you know if its St. Patrick’s Day, Spring is right around the...
