Aromatherapy – Tried and True Reasons to Spoil YOURSELF

Guest Blogger: Doug I myself am a huge fan of any and all spa and aromatherapy experiences. From those at the tony spas found in most metropolitan areas, to a new bar of French milled soap, I love it all.

Do You Hear Bagpipes?

My job at GiftTree takes me around the world looking for new products for our customers. One of the best venues are trade shows. The International Home and Housewares Show in Chicago takes place during St. Paddy’s Day festivities and I am scheduled to attend. Lucky me! Chicago is a city that embraces the Irish...

For Newlyweds – Who Love to Eat but Can’t Cook!

I wish I had been given the Engraved Chopsticks For Two as a wedding present because when I first got married I knew how to make a few dishes, but not many and my husband was so helpless in the kitchen he burned toast. We have since honed our cooking skills and discovered our love...

Peace Lily and Quiet

Have you ever received a plant as a gift and within a week it was starting to look puny? By the time you call the gift giver to thank them the plant has been mulching in the compost for a few days already. As a person with not much of a green thumb I constantly [...]

Was I Always a Gift Giver?

A friend of mine asked me if I send gifts to people more often now than in the past, being that I work for a gift company. The truth is, I do. I’ve always been the type of person that likes to send friends and family gifts to congratulate them on a new job or...

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...

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...
