GIFT SELECTION & GIFT BASKETS
There are so many occasions throughout the year when a gift is needed for a special someone in our lives. Of course, Christmas is the top gift buying occasion, but there are also Birthdays, Weddings, Anniversaries, Births, Graduations, Housewarmings, Get Wells, Thank Yous, and many other gift reasons and occasions sprinkled throughout the year. Special days, holidays and commemorative occasions are things that we look forward to celebrating. Not only do these special occasions offer the chance to build wonderful traditions and create lasting memories with family and friends, but they offer some great gift-giving opportunities as well.
“Giving the right gift is a talent – to know what a person wants, to know when and how to get it, to give it lovingly and well.” ~Pamela Glenconner
But what do you get for all the special people in your life that truly reflects their interests, are appropriate for the occasion and will be a joy to receive? What do you get for that extra special family member, the couple who has “everything”, the friend who always returns or exchanges gifts for something else, the teenager whose interests change with the wind? You want to give something that will express your love, appreciation and gratitude for the role that special someone plays in your life, and that reflects their tastes, rather than your own. Sometimes there are so many options available that it is often difficult to decide what to get. Do you head to the mall and try to navigate the parking lot, the crowds, the proliferation of choices and the till line-ups in an attempt to find something that’s just right - and within your budget? Or, do you madly search through catalogues or surf the internet trying to find “that special something”? A key thing to remember is that “the excellence of the gift lies in its appropriateness, rather than its value” ~Charles Dudley Warner. Any gift that is well-considered and presented with true warmth and sentiment brings happiness not only to the receiver, but to the giver as well.
We’ll help you to determine your gift-giving needs, help you set a budget for those needs, recommend and/or shop for specific purchases of gifts and services, keep records of your gift recipients’ preferences and sizes, provide reminder services for seasonal or special occasion gift purchases and, if needed, even do the gift wrapping for you!
Our specialty is sourcing beautiful, interesting, unique items that are presented in our signature theme gift baskets. Gift baskets are a joy to receive, and are a lifesaver for the gift-giver when trying to think up one spectacular gift item proves to be challenging. Gift baskets are not only visually appealing, but they also provide the giver with an ideal opportunity to be creative and really hone in on a variety of the gift recipient’s interests or needs. Perhaps your special someone is a gardener who would love a medley of garden tools, seeds and pretty little pots; or, perhaps he or she loves to cook and entertain and would relish a gift basket filled with specialty goodies and cooking gadgets. Gift baskets are also a great way to say thank you to your clients, customers and employees – especially at holiday times. These are the people who help you to grow your business and it is important to recognize the value they bring to your endeavour throughout the year. The contents of our gift baskets can be customized to reflect any desired theme or combination of interests. No matter what the occasion is, it is always a pleasure for us to create a lovely gift basket for any of your gift-giving needs!
