Hang gorgeous baskets from the ceiling above you. Integrate a small trellis into your design so that plants...

How Much is Your Nose Worth?

I attend wine tastings on occasion as part of my job. My nose isn’t sensitive enough to pick up all the nuances necessary to declare myself a leading authority in the industry, but I still manage to select some great wines for our customers. I rely more on my taste buds (and wine reviews by...

The Golden Years

Traditionally in most western cultures gifts made out of specific materials are given to couples depending on how many years they have been married. In the first it is paper, the eighth year is bronze, 25th silver, and in the 50th gold. I think the As Good as Gold gourmet food basket is a great...

We Put the “Custom” in Customer Service

As part of the Corporate Sales Team here at GiftTree, part of my job is to help business owners find the best gift for each occasion. And the part that makes my job so fun and easy is that I never feel like there is an occasion we don’t have a gift for! That doesn’t mean...

What to Get Our Hairdresser

So me and another gal that works here at GiftTree share the same hairdresser. Our hairdresser is beyond pregnant and about to go on maternity leave. We want to get her something but are not sure what to send her. We are not sure if her employer limits the dollar amount of gifts she can...

The Rise of Oregon Pinots

Oregon’s wine country has received a lot of attention recently. This year an Erath Pinot Noir made Wine Spectator’s Top 100 and a Domaine Serene is now the fourth most popular Pinot Noir in American restaurants, as noted by Wine & Spirits magazine. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, in the 10 years between 1995...

Brunch Anyone?

Easter is almost here. Planning a brunch? Mimosas or Morning Glories are a must. For a Mimosa, simply pour champagne and orange juice into a tall flute. If you prefer something a little smoother, add a little bit of Grand Marinier and you will have created a Morning Glory. If you are flush with cash,...

What Does “Gourmet” Mean?

The word “gourmet” is thrown around a lot these days. It is used to describe food, coffee, restaurants, cookware, and even pet food. The funny thing is that “gourmet” is not technically an adjective: it is a noun! By definition, a gourmet is a person with a sensitive and discriminating palate, and who is knowledgeable in...

Top 10 Silly Holidays

There are numerous holidays that aren’t necessarily big gifting holidays. Sometimes these holidays are so silly, the thought of having the day as a holiday is a gift in itself. So to help spread the holiday cheer and perhaps my juvenile enjoyment of the obscure, here is a list of my top 10 favorite odd...

All Hands on Deck

Working at GiftTree means you are a team player. During the holidays especially, all departments jump in where needed. The owners are taking customer calls, and the IT department is making gift baskets. It truly is a time for camaraderie and holiday spirit. I was able to spend a Saturday in December working in our...

Adolescent Dog Desires to Learn New Tricks

Okay, let’s be honest, the only things my dog really desires are tennis balls and never ending fields to chase them in. My dog defines his breed better than any other retriever I’ve ever met! He eats, sleeps and breathes retrieving; he literally moves his legs like he’s running when he’s asleep!...

Harley

I recently lost a very good friend in my life. He was always there to greet me at the door with big hugs and kisses. He listened to every word I had to say and never judged me. If I needed to take a walk, he was always a willing partner. He was a Black [...]

Corporate Panache

The moment I laid eyes on the Double Wine Tote with Wines & Accessories, I knew it was going to be a big hit with our corporate gifts customers. The leather tote is reminiscent of old world society, evoking images of dashing gentleman’s clubs and elite societies. Upon opening the tote, you are presented with...

Going Green with Dagoba

My brothers both work in the environmental field and are hyperaware of all of the ecologically sound products on the market. A few years ago I had the unique joy of one-upping them: I gave them a box of Dagoba chocolate bars. At first they shrugged the gift off, but I was quick to correct...

A World of Thanks

A friend of mine just called looking for a gift to send a colleague of hers. She basically wanted to thank her attorney for all she does for her and her new business. I made a few suggestions of my favorites. My friend decided to order “A World of Thanks” because not only is the...

Soggy Dog

All of us that live in the Pacific Northwest know one thing for sure; it’s wet here!! If you own a dog then you’re no stranger to the wet meanderings of your pooch through sodden backyards and mud puddles. My dog literally seeks out the biggest puddles he can find just to...
