Whether they’re honoring relationships, feeling grateful, or simply being there for one another, Why We Gift Wednesday: Your Stories is all about the greatest gift we can give to one another: connection. So why do we gift? Our customer Mary wrote to us: “A friend since elementary school, I never thought I would see her again, many years later we wound up buying houses directly across the street from each other! With full time jobs and all of “life” filling up the 24/7/365 schedule we rarely talked or saw each other. I retired three years ago, and now my friend retired- YEEEHAAAAAW!!! Super happy and excited for her and looking forward to seeing lots more of her!” What’s better than time spent together, especially after some years have gone by? We’re so excited for Mary and her friend, and we hope they’re having a wonderful time enjoying their retirements together.

Why We Gift Wednesday (Acts of Kindness Edition)

Why We Gift Wednesday (Acts of Kindness Edition)

Welcome to another edition of Why We Gift Wednesday! Each week, we celebrate all the reasons that we love giving. Whether it’s honoring 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 most significant moments. Today is all about kindness! Perform an Act of Kindness Today! Saturday October 20th is Sweetest Day  – it sounds like a romantic holiday, right? However, contrary to popular belief, Sweetest Day’s purpose is kindness. After noticing the many orphaned and underprivileged children in Cleveland, a candy maker there decided to create the holiday. So the purpose was not to sell candy, but to give it away. There are so many things you can do to help someone in need today. Elderly neighbor? Offer a ride to the grocery store or the Doctor! Seeing a lot of trash around the city park? Gather some friends and have a clean up party.  Make a donation to a charity. Invite that new co-worker out to lunch or happy hour.  Call a family member you haven’t spoken to in awhile. Send a gift to someone you know could use a pick-me-up! Whatever you decide to do, show others that they are thought of, cared for and appreciated. Even the smallest gesture can have a big impact – making someone aware that they’re noticed can change the course of a whole day.  ...

Why We Gift Wednesday (Fall Baking Edition)

Welcome to another edition 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. It’s October, it’s Autumn, and that means it’s time to grab our cookbooks and bring out our most comforting recipes! That’s why this Why We Gift Wednesday is all about Fall baking.  Honestly, what’s better than baked delicious things, served warm from the oven? There is something special about enjoying baked goods straight from the oven during Fall and winter. A simple warm cookie can transport you right back to Grandma’s kitchen, your childhood bakery, or maybe Christmas morning. It seems to go straight to your soul as well as your stomach – soothing you from head to toe, especially when you’re sipping some coffee or tea along with it. Whether you’re a novice or a seasoned professional, everyone can learn to bake. But it takes time, patience and practice to learn how to bake well.  Within the walls of GiftTree headquarters, you are sure to find plenty of home cooks, bakers and downright foodies (guilty as charged). Many of us are pretty much obsessed with food – from seeking out new restaurants, to sharing recipes, to curating our awesome Epicurean Collection. Therefore, naturally it’s… Cookbook Recommendation Time! The Baking Bible – Rose Levy Beranbaum. The legend herself is back with her most extensive...
