Business Gifts - Make Milestones Matter

Giving Gifts to the Legal Professional

“The first thing we do, let’s kill all the lawyers.” – Shakespeare Shakespeare’s character Dick the Butcher was being none too kind in this phrase from the play Henry VI, but he was really reflecting upon the notion of the people – that all lawyers were corrupt, conniving, and didn’t deserve a place in society. These days, most people don’t feel the same way about lawyers, especially since there are so many different types. Sure, there are prosecutors and criminal lawyers, litigation attorneys and many other types. Those are the first “lawyers” that come to mind. But what about the attorneys who help families prepare wills, or sign off on leases and contracts to make sure that every part of a deal is fair and organized? We need lawyers for every part of our day and every part of our civilized society.   We Need Lawyers! Be Kind to Lawyer’s Day is April 9th   Therefore, in 2017, April 9th was declared Be Kind to Lawyers Day! The best way to celebrate is to make sure that the legal professionals in your life know how much you appreciate the work they do. Take some time to really understand the struggles they face, and send them a gift basket to let them know you care about their efforts. Has a lawyer helped you in a child custody case, or sorted things out with an unruly neighbor? If so, Be Kind To Lawyers Day is the perfect chance to send a little thank you for what they’ve done. Make ake sure you’re familiar with the law firm’s ground rules for business...

Great Gifts for the Keto & Low Carb Lifestyles

Let’s face it – food is one of life’s greatest pleasures. So it’s only natural that food makes a wonderful gift! Whether the recipient is personal or professional, giving high-quality delectable food gifts is pretty much guaranteed to be a hit. However, what if the person you’re shopping for is on a restricted diet, like Keto, Atkins or Low Carb? That’s where GiftTree comes in! Here are some great Low Carb and Keto gift ideas! Low-carbohydrate, and more recently, Ketogenic diets have seen a surge in popularity. Opting for high-fat, low-carb and low-sugar foods pushes the body into a mode where it’s burning fat for fuel, rather than getting its energy from the intake of sugar and carbs. Many Americans are choosing to fill up on meats, cheese, eggs and veggies, while avoiding sweets, pasta, potatoes, bread and rice. We have tons of options that are perfect for recipients who are living the low-carb and Keto life.   Gift Ideas for Keto & Low Carb Diets The French Connection Relax in luxury with this spread of French cheeses and charcuterie that’s nothing short of magnifique! Each artisanal cheese is cut-to-order by world-renowned Murray’s cheese makers, gently wrapped in specialty paper and shipped with ice packs to preserve its perfectly cool condition. Presented in a rustic wooden crate, it’s a gracious offering for those with excellent taste.                   The Maître d’Selection Premium charcuterie including Toscano Fennel Salami and Jamon Iberico. Widely considered to be the world’s finest ham, Jamon Iberico de Bellota originates from free-range hogs that roam the oak forests of Western Spain...

3 Tips to Giving the Best Wine Gifts

Not all of us are sommeliers or wine experts. So when it comes to choosing the wine that conveys the impression you’re hoping to achieve, it can be tricky! Here are our top three go-to tips when it comes to giving the best wine gifts. TIP #1 – The relationship you have with your recipient should be taken into account first and foremost. Is the wine gift for your boss? Just because your boss is a wine lover, he might not appreciate a Gewürztraminer or a pink Moscato. So consider the relationship that you have – is it personal or professional? Also, take the occasion into account as well. A bottle of Champagne as a gift for someone who has been sick with the flu isn’t really a very thoughtful gift. TIP #2 – If you know of a particular label that he or she already loves, play it safe! Why take a chance when you already know what will make them happy? If you’re unsure of their particular wine tastes, try to gauge what they might like at a very base level. When you saw them at that Christmas party, were they drinking red or white wine? If all else fails, reach out to someone close to them and ask! It’s totally acceptable to approach a close friend or family member and say something like, “I’d love to surprise her with a bottle of wine. Any recommendations on what she might like?” TIP #3 – Presentation matters. Up the game and elevate the gift with spectacular presentation (we love our Burlwood boxes). Especially if you’re giving a wine gift you...

Spirited Gifts for Inspirational Women

This Friday, March 8th is International Women’s Day! Here at GiftTree we’re big supporters of this holiday, and have the Women’s Day gifts to prove it. But first, here’s a little about the history of IWD. Even though the holiday was made “official” by the United Nations in 1975, the first IWD was declared in the US in 1909. In the turn of the 19th century, women’s oppression and inequality was inspiring women to become more vocal and active in campaigning for change. Then in 1908, 15,000 women marched through New York City demanding shorter hours, better pay and voting rights. (Source) International Women’s Day Today Today, the world has indeed seen progress toward equality for women, but there is still work to do. Women are not paid equally to their male counterparts. They’re not present in equal numbers in business or politics. Globally, women’s education, health and the violence against them is worse than that of men. However, we have female astronauts and prime ministers, girls are welcomed to universities, it’s possible for women to have careers and families. Women have real choices. And so, each year on International Women’s Day, the world inspires women and celebrates their achievements. Celebrate the strong, inspiring and successful women in your life with a gift! Here are some great Women’s Day gift ideas.    Keepsakes, Flowers & Gifts to Pamper Her Bath & Body Invigoration Artisan Sand Inlet Cuff Posh Pinks Engraved Keepsake Tray   Chocolate, Fruit, Wine & Champagne Bountiful Cellar Champagne & Chocolate Fresh Fruit & Godiva Generous Gourmet Chocolate & Nuts   Comment Below Who is the most inspirational...

The Psychology of Business Gifting

In the United States, business gift giving is an industry valued at nearly $22 billion dollars per year. Billion. Companies give to their employees, their clients and their partners on many different occasions, especially during the holidays. Why is business gifting held at such a high value, you ask? Because of the return on investment. Overall, the psychology of business gifting works in two ways. First, it sends a message of appreciation (or enticement, or inspiration) to recipients, and second, it serves as a reminder of your brand or company. Even when you know the ground rules of corporate gift giving, making sure your gifts achieve your intended goal can be a bit overwhelming. The feeling can also continue when you stop to consider what the budget may be. But remember this: spending money on a gift is an investment. You’re investing in improving the impression a person has about you and your company. Sending the right business gifts at the right time motivates action. You may want to inspire your sales team, boost your employees, solidify customer loyalty or close a prospect. While most companies send gifts primarily during the holidays, making gifting a part of your business plan really should be a year-round strategic endeavor that all departments looking to build relationships should pursue. Prove You Pay Attention To Your Recipients. This gift-giving concept has a much bigger impact than you might think! In a recent business gifting study, 88% of people said they wished that the business gift was more suited to their actual interests. 90% said they didn’t want to get generic promotional “swag” –...
