Unique Mothers’ Day Gift Basket Choices

Tuesday, April 28th, 2009

Growing up in a small town as a child is a great memory for me. We had one general store in our town and I gathered up every cent I had and headed out to find perfect gift baskets for Mother’s Day. I was so pleased that I had found what I thought was the perfect gift and protected it the whole way home. I had spent 75 cents that day but it felt like a hundred dollars to me. I was on top of the world and knew that my mother would be pleased with my choice. I don’t really remember her initial reaction to my gift but I do remember over the years that I had to dust that little trinket every Saturday and it sat on the shelf until the day my mother died. I now own this little treasure and would not sell it for a million dollars but instead treasure it as a memory of my mother. I know that it wasn’t the cost of the item that mattered but the thought that I had chosen it and purchased it for her. When choosing a gift for your mother remember the cost doesn’t matter as much as the thought that you remembered and thought enough to show you care. Selecting from a great variety of Mothers’ Day gift baskets makes your task a lot easier!

Administrative Professionals Day

Friday, April 24th, 2009

Show your staff you care by sending a gift basket! Sometimes life is so busy that you feel you don’t have time to shop for another gift.  Keep it easy and simple by ordering a gift basket for your Administrative Professional right from your office.  When I worked in an office before my children were born the days sometimes were long and it felt like my hard work went unnoticed.  One year to celebrate Administrative Professional’s Day my boss decided to show us how much he appreciated us by treating us all to lunch and then when we returned to work there was a nice little gift basket of chocolates, cookies, teas and coffee’s to bring home to enjoy later.  It was very nice to know that I was appreciated and it seemed to boost everyone’s morale.
