Gifts That Celebrate (Without Champagne)

When you think about celebrations, what’s the first thing that comes to your mind? Why, Champagne, of course! However, it’s not everyone’s cup of tea (er, glass of Champagne). Many adults abstain from drinking alcohol due to health, religion, or personal taste. So when a milestone arises, say, a birthday, an anniversary or an achievement, what do you give them? Here are some of GiftTree’s bestselling congratulations gifts that celebrate without Champagne.

Make Your Business Gifts Memorable: It’s All in the Details

Giving meaningful business gifts to employees or clients is just as much about the giver as it is about the recipient. The offering you present to celebrate an occasion or mark a milestone is, in essence, a representation of your company’s feelings toward that person or occasion. Through gift giving, it’s important not to let the reason that we’re giving pass right by, leaving the moment understated. Here at GiftTree, we think a lot of that declaration is expressed through the presentation of the best business gifts. Of course, getting a gift from anyone for any reason is always a joy, but have you ever received an unwrapped gift? Didn’t it sort of feel like someone was just kind of handing you something? If you really want to make your business gifts memorable, consider the presentation of your gift! After all, so much of the excitement is the moment as they’re unwrapping, right before the reveal. There’s that wonderful anticipation of “what on earth could this be?”, and it just goes to show that presentation matters. It’s All in the Details So how does GiftTree make our business gifts truly meaningful? Your gift message is printed on a card and attached to your gift, where it won’t get lost or missed. A handy little pair of scissors included to easily open up all the goodies! Customizable ribbon is tied by hand around every gift basket! Personalized details such as engraving, sandblasting, plaques, hang-tags and more. Baskets and hampers made from enduring materials to be repurposed (making your gift even more memorable!). We can tell you about all the details,...

The Best Gifts for Admin’s Day

Administrative Professional’s Day, or Admin’s Day, is next Wednesday! While National Secretaries Day was its original name, Admin’s Day began in 1952. At an ad agency, a publicist named Harry Klemfuss observed the great responsibility placed on the company’s secretary. So Harry the public relations manager, championed for more awareness of the value of the job that secretaries do. He created Secretaries Day with the goal of encouraging more women to become secretaries (nowadays, women and men, of course – we think Klemfuss would agree). Administrative Professional’s Day  – April 24 While the name has evolved with the times, recognizing these vital individuals has grown, too. It may mean different roles and responsibilities in different companies and organizations, but the overarching theme is this: Admins Day is all about appreciating those in administrative roles who keep it all on track, day after day. Here are the perfect gifts to thank your admins on April 24th.   Fabulously Fresh Flowers Generous Gourmet Gift Baskets Seriously Serene Spa Gifts Wish-Worthy Wine Gifts     Comment Below How are you going to thank the Admin at your office on April...

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...

April Birth Flower: Daisy

Did you know every birth month has its own flower? In fact, each of those flowers has its own dedicated meaning. It’s believed that the Romans began this tradition, and the Victorian era also brought floriography, the language of flowers. Delightful daisies are the April birth flower! April brings spring in full swing, and daisies are one of the first flowers to appear. The daisy conveys innocence, loyalty and purity. However, in Victorian times, giving daisies between friends keeping a secret was a way to say “I’ll never tell.”   Give a Bouquet of Daisies for April Birthdays!   GiftTree’s fresh flower bouquets are never delivered in the box! Your recipient won’t have to find a vase, trim and arrange the bouquet themselves. Our expert florists are located all over the country, arranging bouquets in keepsake vases and delivering them in perfect condition. Want to know the other months’ birth flowers and their meaning? Here’s a quick guide to glance at! Check back on GiftTree’s blog every first Monday of the month over the next year. We’ll be featuring that month’s birth flower as well as showing you our beautiful bouquets that feature the flower.     Month Flower Symbolism January Carnation Devoted Love, True Friendship February Violet Faithfulness, Virtue March Daffodil Affection, Regards April Daisy Innocence, Purity May Lily of the Valley Hope, humility and sweetness June Rose Love, devotion, passion, desire July Larkspur Affection, Laughter, Lightheartedness August Gladiolus Moral Integrity, Generosity September Aster Daintiness, elegance, love, magic October Calendula Gracefulness and Joy November Chrysanthemum Cheerfulness, Friendship, Abundance December Holly Good Wishes, Glad...

Warding Off Stress: Helpful Tips & Tricks

April is Stress Awareness Month. Stress – in one way or another, everyone on this little blue planet deals with it. Whether it’s in the workplace or the home, in our bodies or our minds, with family or among friendships, stress is a real factor that has a huge impact on our lives. It’s an every day battle, and unfortunately for some, it can be a lifelong war. The good news we can fight back! In this day and age, there is an arsenal of weapons to combat everyday stress. Relieve stress with some of these tips.   Three Healthful, Stress-Fighting Tips 1. Get Enough Sleep. It’s crucial to human function that we all get enough sleep. Sleep allows our bodies to rest and our brains to recharge. Studies show that not getting enough – or getting low quality – sleep can have a dramatic effect on mood, judgement, memory and more. Most people between the ages of 18-49 need around six to eight hours of sleep each night. If you have trouble sleeping, especially due to worry, develop a routine that helps you get relaxed and ready for bed. Some gentle yoga, a warm bath with epsom salts, aromatherapy or chamomile tea can all help. And avoid screens! The blue light from TVs, laptops, tablets or smart phones have a directly negative effect on sleep quality. 2. Eat Well. We all want to eat comfort foods when we’re stressed out, and it makes sense: your body is actually craving carbohydrates. Carbs produce serotonin, giving you those nice, happy feelings. But if you’re eating unhealthy carbs in the form of...

Gifts and Flowers to Thank Your Doctor

Did you know that when you send a gift from GiftTree, we print your gift message on cardstock and directly attach it to the gift? Most companies print your message on the packing slip, putting it outside the box where it gets lost or missed. Thank You Gifts are probably the most popular theme at GiftTree. In hearing from thousands of happy customers over the years, one of the most popular reasons for sending a thank you gift is for receiving exceptional medical care. And why not? Doctors go above and beyond every day. They listen carefully to their patients, they take the time to explain process and next steps. Every day, Doctors put their own needs aside to care for those around them. National Thank Your Doctor Day is Saturday March 30th! Do you have an awesome doctor? If so, here are some perfect gifts and flowers to thank your Doctor.   Fresh Flowers to Thank Your Doctor Deliver fresh flowers to the Doctor’s office or staff lounge at your local hospital!

Why We Gift Wednesday: Your Stories

Welcome to another edition Why We Gift Wednesday! Each week, we celebrate one of the thousands of reasons that we truly love giving by hearing from our wonderful customers themselves. 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 Angel wrote to us: “My college-aged daughter was in a car accident while driving along through a town that she knew nothing about. We were 6 hours away! The local community hospital is small and very family-oriented. One of the doctors had just left from doing his rounds when he came upon my daughter’s car accident. He took care of her, called me and gave me details with a very calm voice, then he took her to the local hospital where he and his nursing staff fed her, cared for her and kept her safe and comfortable until someone could arrive. The doctor and staff blessed our family beyond words, so gifting something as a small token of the gift they gave to us just made sense. We will forever be grateful for them.” Isn’t that amazing? That Doctor, having just left a probably very long shift at the hospital didn’t hesitate to stop and help, going above-and-beyond his call of duty. Believe it or not, here at GiftTree we get dozens of these kinds of emails every week – gift-givers telling us the stories of the amazing medical care that they received. We’re pretty sure Doctors and Nurses are Saints, at this point! National...

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...

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 Kelley writes: “My best friend and her husband were moving into a new place. I couldn’t be there to help. I wanted them to enjoy the experience and have something to celebrate with, since all their things would be in boxes. I thought of flowers or house plants, but knew they would enjoy a box of goodies so much more. They were thrilled! And they were surprised to see how much was in the gift! They loved the packaging and the little scissors included to help open it (since their scissors were packed away). They sat in the middle of the floor surrounded by boxes and enjoyed the wine and yummy snacks, just as I envisioned it. Thank you GiftTree for making this a great experience all around. We will definitely be using you again!”   Thanks for the kind words, Kelley! We’re all about perfect presentation, top shelf wine and snacks, and being there for your friends and family, even when you’re miles apart.

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...
