Gift Baskets are the Best Way to Show your Love and Appreciation

Do you know what you are putting into your May Gift Baskets?  Well, let’s see… the first week of May we have Teacher Appreciation Week (don’t forget about last day of school gifts too), followed by Mother’s Day (don’t forget your Mother in Law) and what about all of those high school and college graduations.  The best thing about gift baskets is you can customize them to match the event of the recipient’s personality.

Here are some terrific ideas on what to put in your May Gift Baskets –

The Sweet Tooth

Chocolates and candies are always great to include, who doesn’t love chocolate!  Sweet tooth’s will love to receive a basket full of chocolates, truffles, and chocolate-covered anything.  Their mouth will water when they set their sights on these delicious treats, like irresistibly crisp cookies, or slow-melting chocolates.

The Extravagant

For the person who likes nice things, choose items that are deliciously first class. Fresh and dried fruits, gourmet nuts, aged meats or salmon, a nice cheese and don’t forget a bottle of artisan water or a bottle of a top-of-the-line champagne.

The Giver

This person is constantly giving of their time and talents and never think about themselves.  Help them to relax and take a moment for themselves. Give items like fair trade coffee or chocolates, a great book, journal, a mug with a motivational quote an assortment of teas or coffee.  Make sure your basket has something that gives back to the person who gives everything.

The Hobbyist

There are so many gift options for this person on your list.  Create the gift around things they enjoy doing. The golfer, cooker, gardener, camper, wine enthusiast goer and so.  Need help…we can customize your basket with whatever hobby they enjoy.

The Relaxer

What is better than a trip to the spa???  Nothing, well maybe a trip to Hawaii! The relaxer is a person that loves to be in the moment, maybe with a good book or relaxing in the spa.  Bring the spa to the comforts of their home by suppling everything they will need to have a relaxing spa.  Luxurious lotions and shower gels, silk bath robe, bath matt, loofa and a clean scented candle is a great start. Adding truffles and tea or artisan water adds another WOW factor to the gift.

The Learner

This person is always interested in learning a new skill or something new!  A gift basket is a perfect way to give them the tools needed to get started.  If they want to learn how to make wine, cheese, play golf, paint.  A basket with the needed tools will be surely welcomed.

The Health Conscious

For the person who is conscious of what they eat, we can fill their basket with smart snacking options – of course, they taste great! We can also add in healthy dark chocolate because you know it is a vegetable!

The Gamer

Not everyone who loves to play games is into online games.  We can handle both.  Adding chips and dip, nuts, root beer, soda will have them ready for an all-nighter. Family game nights are also great for this gift basket.  So whether it’s for the all night gaming tournament, or for a Friday night family game night, we can make it sure to please.

The Gourmet

The Gourmet is always challenging themselves with the latest recipe or trying to up their popcorn to new heights.  Treat them with something extra special by including gourmet delights in the basket.  A monogrammed apron,  tea towels,  earth-friendly dish and hand soap for the kitchen,  cookbook,  wood spoon and a spatula make for great items.

The Coffee Lover

Cater to their taste with a basket that has everything you need to enjoy a great cup of Joe.  With items such as whole coffee beans, coffee press, biscotti, flavoring syrups, mug, and maybe even a book on coffees from around the world. The coffee basket will be everything this person loves about coffee and will allow them to make an impressive cup of coffee.

The Gardener

This is the person who likes to keep their hands dirty. New gardening gloves, hat, most-used gardening tools, an all natural bug repellent, sunscreen, water bottle, trail mix and even few packets of their favorite seeds.  The recipient of this gift will grow in gratitude.

The Golfer

Golf can we a way of life, some are obsessed with hitting those tiny balls off into the sunset.  Our golf basket is loaded with all the essentials and accessories.  We can include towels, tees, divot tools, club cover, hat, gloves, mug, and even a picture frame.  Make sure to include some snacks too!

The Chef

Give this gift to someone who loves to cook or the newly wed couple who loves cooking together. Items such as a cookbook, artesian cooking tools, apron, kitchen towels and linens, kitchen timer, and even a magnetic menu list are staples every cook should have. We will include new gadgets or all the tools to make a special meal.  Don’t forget to include wine that goes with the meal too.

No matter if the person on your list likes adventure or calm, sweet or savory, mild or spicy, a gift basket full of treats especially for them will be a welcomed gift.  We can prepare a personalized gift basket for anyone.

Earth Day 4/22

Green Day

Celebrating Earth Day (which should be every day by the way) reminds me how doing our part to preserve our beautiful green planet can make a difference.  When designing our custom gifts, we use recycled boxes and shred whenever possible.  Below are a few tips on ways you can help our planet.

Planting a tree

I love creating gifts that celebrate and preserve the earth. Planting a tree is a great way to celebrate Earth Day. We’re in love with our Apple-Tree To-Be gift bags! These adorable giftbags are a big hit in so many ways like for a new baby, new home, wedding gift and the list could go on.  Planting a tree symbolizes new beginnings. Trees do way more than beautify an area, they are an excellent source for keeping our air clean, and they help in producing oxygen.Apple Trees to Be

Growing your own herbs

Growing your herbs can be very useful and deliciously fun! You don’t need a large garden to grow herbs, all you need is a windowsill and sunlight. Our Garden-in-a-Pail can be enjoyed from the comforts of inside your home – from the pail to the plate!Herb Pail

Reusable Gift Bag

Reduce, reuse and recycle, the golden rule of an eco-friendly lifestyle. I personally have a love for using reusable totes in my personal life, and I get an extra kick when asked to create gifts in reusable totes. We’re now in the process of making beautiful bridal party, wedding day survival gifts in these timeless gift bags.

Tips for Making Corporate Welcome Gifts Memorable

Corporate gifting can sometimes get a bad rap for being too “corporate.” When giving gifts at events such as conferences, meetings or welcoming out of town guests to your company, these gifts should send a message of thoughtfulness and value.
Below I share five tips for creating memorable corporate gifts that will leave your recipients with a great lasting impression.

#1 Write a personal welcome note

Use creative thinking when writing the letter. It’s easy to use “corporate” speech, so instead, allow the letter to represent a thoughtful note you would enjoy reading personally. Keep in mind, even though the event is business, your guest will most likely view it as entertaining and fun; outside their normal day to day work routine. Don’t forget along with the meeting or conference itinerary, to supply helpful information to your guests such as nearby restaurants and local attractions.

#2 Coordinate gifts to complement event

Making sure the style of the event shines through into the gifting process is our number one goal. By paying attention to every detail in the gift process, allows the guests attending the event to understand what to expect.

#3 Consider your audience

The hardest part of choosing what to give at an event is choosing something that appeals to both male and female. We recommend unisex items, which means each recipient will be able to enjoy the same thing. Unisex gifting makes the welcoming process go quickly and smoothly.

#4 Make it FUNctional

Functional is a word that’s often used in corporate settings when it comes to meetings and conferences. However, your guests want to experience a little fun too! Mix functional and fun together in the welcome gifts, like pairing a simple water bottle with local fun, artisan chocolates or nuts. These small gestures are noticed and greatly appreciated by your guests. Incorporating local items into your gifts gives your out of town guests a sample of what your great city has to offer.

#5 Make it memorable

I have a client who says she spoils her guests who attend her conferences and I think she’s on to something great. You don’t have to break the conference or meeting budget to make your guest feel welcomed and appreciated. So spoil your guest by adding thoughtful touches to your gifts, and they will surely remember your event and want to attend again.
