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.

Fall is Just Around the Corner…

Wednesday, August 20th, 2008

If you look closely, the leaves are starting to turn.  Ok, you have to look really close. But back to school is less than 2 weeks ago. It’s early this year. Halloween and Christmas gift planning has already begun, especially for a busy gift basket business. Sample orders are arriving daily and new designs will be created shortly. Once photographed, they will be placed online asap. I can almost smell the cinnamon sticks!

Summertime and it’s almost gone…

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2008

The weather is horrible right now, and I’m thinking of how fast the summer is passing. Soon the leaves will be turning and kids will be back in school. The only satisfaction is knowing that business will pick up and we’ll be able to create some fantastic halloween and christmas gift baskets. I’d prefer to live in South Florida and run a gift basket business but that is not the luck I have. In the meantime, I’ll wait for the next sunny day and make sure i enjoy it to the fullest!

Halloween Gifts – in July?

Sunday, July 6th, 2008

Who plans for Halloween in July? Retailers, that’s who – especially those of us in the gift industry!(Actually large retailers such as those big box stores have already completed their planning for Halloween months ago). I’m currently reviewing last year’s gift designs and going over the numbers, looking for the strong sellers and identifying the less popular designs. Once I compare this information with our historical data over the past few years I’ll be ready to really focus and get down to business. Have a peek at some corporate halloween gift giving information.
