Dragonflies for Mom

My favorite new product is the Chicken Soup for a Mother’s Soul Gourmet Gift Basket. It seems perfect for my mother as she is really in to dragonflies and the cup is so gorgeously decorated with dragonflies. She loves getting GiftTree gifts because she can always reuse the fabulous containers that the gifts come in....

Save the Earth – One Fax At a Time

I have a printer and a fax machine in my office. The fax machine recently ran amok. It was a simple fix, just a quick cartridge change and a cleaning, but the machine was down for about a week. After I fixed the problem, the fax queue began to unload. Sheet after sheet spewed forth...

Paper or Plastic?

Hopefully your answer will be “Neither, I brought my own.” In an effort to reduce, reuse and recycle, most stores and markets nowadays offer reusable shopping bags at a very affordable price. The idea is to eliminate the use and disposal of plastic bags that fill our landfills. A lot of times the reusable shopping...

What’s in a Game?

One of my friends has an old game called Batten Down the Hatches, that she said her grandfather played when he was in the Navy. There was something familiar about the game to me, but I couldn’t place it right away. She told me it was also called Canoga and Shut the Box. Ah… that’s...

Elegant Wedding Favors

We’ve all been to weddings where there is a pile of birdseed and a votive candle wrapped in cellophane waiting for us as a favor. It is really no way to thank a guest for the $250.00 mixer they just bought! So what would be an appropriate gift? There are many options but the main...

Pet Gifts for the Soul

I just love the Chicken Soup for the Soul books.  They’re a nice, light read with uplifting stories that I like to read before bed. They’re mostly short stories that are guaranteed to make you smile. I tend to get teary eyed when reading them, though. They have them for just about every occasion that...

Win a Gift for Mom From GiftTree.com

Mother’s Day is just around the corner. I’ve been looking at what GiftTree has available to help me tell my mom how much she means to me. We have several gifts that she would absolutely love – The Chicken Soup for a Mother’s Soul Gourmet Gift Basket would be a huge hit, but the Mother’s...

The Perfect Bow

The final touch, the crowning glory, the perfect accessory to every gift is the bow. You can use the most exquisite wrapping paper, but if you don’t know how to tie a bow the gift won’t pass muster. I am frequently asked how to tie a bow. If you are a novice, I recommend wired...

Wine Making in All 50 States

That’s right, it is possible to grow grapes outside of California! Even though the lion’s share of wine in the U.S. comes from the Golden State (a whopping 90%), entrepreneurs from all 50 states are experimenting with different species in different climates. Resourceful winemakers in grape-challenged environments are importing grapes or turning to local fruit, making...

Some Expensive Libations!

Did you know…… $7,686 was paid at auction for the first bottle of Tutankhamun Ale? It was developed by Cambridge University scientists who gleaned the recipe from hieroglyphics and brewing dregs from the catacombs of one of Tut’s in-laws. Remy Martin’s venerable Louis XIII’s upscale “Black Pearl,” sells for over $10,000 a bottle? Unlike the regular Louis...

Engraved Wine Bottle = Easy Birthday Present

Our in-house engraver frequently needs to test specific products to ensure that engraving is possible, and we GiftTree employees occasionally get to take said products home with us. It’s true, we are quite lucky. Today I was hemming and hawing about a birthday party I have to attend this evening for a fringe friend, and my...

Ecological Footprint

Earth Day is on April 22nd, but the entire month of April is full of earth inspired events and a general focus on getting “greener.” I decided to take the ecological footprint quiz by the Earth Day Network. If you haven’t taken this quiz before, I would encourage you to give it a try. It’s...

Fun-N-Games

I have a friend that I love dearly who is a little on the eclectic side. She is a most worthy Scrabble opponent, (one of our best games was over six hundred) and knows weird trivia like what was Mr. Belvedere’s first name or who won on episode 22 of Name That Tune in 1984....

Composting Made Easy

There are many benefits to having your own composter, for one I’ve heard that you can reduce your household waste by up to 30 percent. This is good for the environment and your wallet! Plus if you like gardening you have ready-made fertilizer for practically free. If you don’t already have a composter they are...

Personalized Corporate Gifts

Giving a gift to a client, employee, or organization is just part of being in business. And yet amidst the throng of pens, mugs, flowers, and yes, even gift baskets, sometimes corporate gifts can seem monotonous and unremarkable. That is where GiftTree steps in. We offer personalized ribbons on more than 20 gifts and products, which...

For the Bathing Bride

On the morning of a bride’s wedding she wakes early with great anticipation much like a child on Christmas morning and begins going over her to do list. Typically by the day of the wedding: the venue has been decorated, the favors have been prepared, and the last boutonniere has been accounted for. With all...
