Friday’s Featured Artisan – Sanders Candy Company

It may be a master chocolatier, a gourmet cheesemonger or a talented artist – GiftTree is here to connect their meaningful stories to the discovery of your next great gifting moment. This Friday’s Featured Artisan is Sanders Candy Company, a delicious candymaker with a rich history. On June 17 1875, Fred Sanders opened his first chocolate shop in Detroit, Michigan with a passion for confections and a borrowed barrel of sugar. By the 1940s, Sanders stores and sweets were household names in the homes and lives of Michigan families. Sanders had become the lead purveyor of sweets in the region, and started selling directly to national supermarket chains and retailers in the area. Eventually, there were more than 57 locations in the Great Lakes Region offering candy, ice cream toppings and baked goods bearing the Sanders name. These early shops were also known for providing light lunches and an assortment of soda fountain-counter specialties, including ice cream soda, hot fudge sundaes and the iconic Sanders Hot Fudge Cream Puffs. Today, Fred Sanders’ simple aim to provide delicious sweets at a fair price is still the company’s mission. They use the finest ingredients to make all their products, and never sacrifice quality to save on costs. Confections should just taste great, they should be made great! Here at GiftTree, we absolutely love Sanders Pecan Nougat Caramels – so much so, that we put them in many of our gourmet gift baskets! You have to taste these creamy confections that...

History of Housewarming Gifts

But how did all this begin, and what is an appropriate gift to bring? GiftTree is here to explain the history of housewarming gifts and how it originated into what it has become today. We’ll also share insight to make sure that when you attend a housewarming party you come bearing a gift that leaves the home owner feeling appreciated and comfortable in their new home. Housewarming parties are thought to have originated in France. The gathering was a thank you dinner for those who helped build the house. People who attended would bring firewood to warm the house and create a pleasant and welcoming atmosphere, which is how the name “Housewarming” came to be. Bringing firewood transformed over the years into giving gifts that would help warm and bless the house. Some of the more traditional gifts given throughout history included: bluebirds, pineapple, and gift baskets.

Friday’s Featured Artisan – Perrier Jouët

Welcome to Friday’s Featured Artisan! Each week, we focus on one of the many talented individuals and companies whose perfect products are proudly featured in GiftTree gifts. It may be a master chocolatier, a gourmet cheesemonger or a talented artist – GiftTree is here to connect their meaningful stories to the discovery of your next great gifting moment. As Champagne lovers, this Friday’s Featured Artisan is someone we at GiftTree hold near and dear to our hearts – the Champagne House Perrier-Jouët. Perrier-Jouët was founded in Epernay by Pierre-Nicolas-Marie Perrier and his wife, Adele Jouët in 1811. One of the most prestigious houses in Champagne, the firm was shipping wine to Great Britain by 1813 and to the United States by 1837. Perrier-Jouët owns 266 acres of vineyards in Champagne, with an average rating of 95%, and is known worldwide for its consistency of style. Their most famous vintage is Belle Epoque, or Fleur Belle Epoque, known for its iconic brilliant green bottle with hand-painted Japanese Anemone flowers – a motif destined to become iconic over the years. All the lightness of white flowers combine with hints of honeyed apple, white peach and lemon zest in this fresh, stylish and iconic champagne. Silky and elegant, this well-structured champagne has a base of mineral notes from the best chardonnay. On the palate, floral and fruit gives way to subtly spicy hints for a pleasant finish. “Belle Epoque 2007 is a crystalline vintage whose subtlety and generosity highlight the precision of the Perrier-Jouët style. It is an epicurean wine.” ~ Hervé Deschamps, Cellar Master GiftTree is delighted to offer Perrier-Jouet Belle Epoque in a number of beautiful...

Great Gifts for the In-Laws

Welcome to GiftTree’s 20th Anniversary Blog Series: 20 Ways to Elevate Your Gift Giving. At GiftTree, we delight in taking ordinary gifting moments and transforming them into extraordinary ones. When a special occasion arises, giving a gift that doesn’t understate the sentiment is the cornerstone of gift-giving. Whether the gift-giving be professional or personal, throughout this series, we intend to focus in on what makes a good gifting moment great, as well as how you can learn to select the perfect gift for any milestone or cause for celebration. Today we’re focusing our attention on some people who might not always seem like the easiest people to shop for: the in-laws. The first step to finding a great gift for your in-laws (or anyone, really) is considering who they really are. Remember this solid rule: the best gift is one that is tailored to the recipient. So think about what your in-laws are interested in, and where they find joy! This should help you begin to narrow down your gift giving ideas. Buying great gifts for the in-laws can definitely be a precarious business – you want to find a gift that says “thank you for welcoming me into your family”, but not in an overly-aggressive way. If your gift is too small, you could look unappreciative, and if your gift is too large, you could give off the impression that you’re trying to buy their favor. But have no fear! GiftTree is here with a few ideas of perfect gifts for in-laws – gifts that aren’t over-the-top, that don’t let the occasion go understated, and gifts that basically say “thank you for raising my awesome significant...

Why We Gift Wednesday (Keep It Simple Edition)

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. Today (July 12th) is National Simplicity Day! That means this Why We Gift Wednesday goes out to the age-old adage, “keep it simple!” Author, naturalist and philosopher Henry David Thoreau was born on July 12, 1817. (Happy 200th birthday, Henry!) As an advocate for living a life of simplicity, Thoreau is best known for his book Walden; Or, Life in the Woods, a reflection on his time spent on Walden Pond in Massachusetts, where he built his own log cabin and lived simply, in the natural surroundings, for two years, two months and two days. “I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.” “We must learn to reawaken and keep ourselves awake, not by mechanical aids, but by an infinite expectation of the dawn, which does not forsake us even in our soundest sleep. I know of no more encouraging fact than the unquestionable ability of man to elevate his life by a conscious endeavor. It is something to be able to paint a particular picture, or to carve...

Master Cheese and Meat Pairing

Summer is in full swing which means it’s time for memorable get-togethers and gatherings! Spending time with loved ones and friends enjoying appetizers and cold drinks is a great way to spend a sunny afternoon. One of the biggest challenges of entertaining is finding the perfect appetizer to please everyone. Pairing a perfectly mastered cheese and meat platter is a great way to have a fun, crowd-pleaser that is sure to be a hit! When putting together your meat and cheese platter, picking out the right combination of meats and determining that perfect cheese pairing can seem overwhelming. There are so many options! Luckily, Gift Tree has done the hard part and we’re here to help you put together the perfect cheese and meat platter that will leave everyone coming back for more. When determining that special cheese to compliment the cured meat on your platter, it is important to keep in mind that opposites are what lead to the perfect combination. For firmer, thicker cut meat use a softer cheese and for that paper-thin slice of meat make sure you are picking out a firmer, denser cheese. Below we’ve listed a few pairings that are sure to be crowd pleasers: Goat and Sheep Cheese and Encased Meats Encased meats are cured in a casting and are usually aged in a more humid environment, in turn creating a softer, flavorful cured meat. The most common of these are sausage and salami. These meats offer a bold and spicy taste with a strong presence of black and red pepper, truffle, and other spices. These meats are best paired with a...

Today we’re turning our attention to the business side of gifting and the sometimes precarious act of sending an international corporate gift. When the time comes to send a gift across the waters or over borders, organizing the transaction, shipment and delivery of a corporate gift can be problematic, often resulting in missed delivery times, the wrong gifts sent or damage to the packaging.
