What Month Were You Born?

I was reading an article the other day about how most babies are born in the fall. I decided to check into it and it seems to be true. From 1990 to 2002, August and July were when the most babies were born every year. July only made the list 4 out of the 12 [...]

Let Them Eat Cake

Sure – you looked gorgeous in your dress. The flowers were beautiful. The food was delicious. But do you know what everyone asks about when they hear about a wedding? They all ask “How was the cake?” It is THE statement piece of the wedding reception. Today’s bride and groom have more options than ever thought...

Who Are You Drinking?

By now we are all familiar with the line “Who are you wearing?” It is the question most often asked of celebrities when they walk down the red carpet. Soon we will be asking each other “Who are you drinking?” More and more celebrities are entering into the world of wine. Greg Norman Arnold Palmer and...

Doggone Good!

In Portland, OR, dogs are a big deal. We have pubs dedicated to dogs like the Lucky Labrador, over 15 holistic pet stores in Portland metro alone, 31 off-leash dog parks, upscale dog boutiques, and a host of dog friendly bakeries. Logically, dog birthdays are also a big event and it is not uncommon...

The Art of Phoenician Pastries

Everyone loves a sweet treat and yet most Americans associate baked sweets with cookies and cakes. Enter Phoenicia Patisserie, a traditional Mediterranean bakery with an incredible variety of exotic confections. Using century old family recipes, bakers blend the rich flavor of pine nuts, pistachios, and cashews with delicate phyllo, crunchy shredded pastry, and a touch of...

Celebrating Your Health and Your Cat

WebMD recently posted a news report claiming that, compared with cat owners, people who had never had a pet cat were 40% more likely to die of a heart attack and 30% more likely to die of a cardiovascular disease, including stroke, heart failure, and chronic heart disease. Unfortunately the researchers found no such link...

Don’t Try This at Home

There are many creative people in this world, but let me dispel any myths right away – I am not one of them. And not everyone that works for a gift basket company is destined to be a designer. (GiftTree’s talented Design Team can attest to this). Since joining the ranks at GiftTree, I have often...

Gifts for March Birthdays

The flower for March is the violet, and, luckily, violets come in many varieties. My mom is a diehard African Violet fan and also happens to be born in March, so every year I send her a new African Violet (her breakfast nook is teeming with them!). This year she will be receiving the European...

What’s New, What’s Hot

I recently returned from the Fancy Food Show in San Diego and the International Gift Fair in New York. What’s new and what’s hot? Going green and organics are red hot right now. Tea is going to run right over coffee in popularity. High contrast colors of orange, teal and brown are prominent on silhouettes...

Does Hallmark Have a Card for That?

Somebody with too much time on their hands must have looked at March and decided to create a few extra holidays. Some of my favorite odd holidays include: March 3rd – What if Cats and Dogs Had Opposable Thumbs Day March 4th – International Scrap Booking Day March 9th – Panic Day March 18th – Awkward Moments Day. It...

Stop Assuming Somebody Else Has It Covered

I’ve discovered something about diaper bags. Everybody (with a baby) needs one, but hardly anyone gives them as a gift. It’s sort of like the pretty girl never getting asked out on a date because it is assumed that somebody else has already asked her out. Everybody thinks somebody else has already given the mother-to-be...

Popcorn + Chocolate = Heaven on Earth

Get a load of this. Popcorn dunked in layer upon layer of chocolate. That’s another description of Heaven for my family. I brought home the Popfections gift thinking it would be a good snack to share. Apparently it was a little too good for sharing. It took two days before my family was begging for...

Signature Scent

I have a friend who lives for bubble baths. I think she was hooked from her first bottle of Mr. Bubble as a kid. Luckily, GiftTree has a more age appropriate version. The Luxury Bath Foam is a kit that permit the user to create her very own signature scent bath foam. The packaging is...

Using Amethyst to Celebrate February Birthdays

Amethyst is the birthstone for February and an easy characteristic to play upon when looking for birthday gifts. GiftTree offers several amethyst, or purple-colored, products that are especially clever and suitable for this theme. For starters, you can’t go wrong with Purple Passion, a large flower arrangement with every shade of purple you can imagine....

Table for Four

I find one of the biggest challenges of hosting a dinner party is setting a table. After spending most of my time preparing the meal, I usually have five minutes left before my guests arrive and I still have yet to set the table and go get the spaghetti sauce out of my hair. Not...
