I have to admit that it is pretty cool that San Jose, and our surrounding areas(San Francisco, Santa Clara, Mountain View, Palo Alto, & others) have become such popular destinations. We do have great weather, even with the nasty drought situation! But, I think a lot of the recent surge in travel to the Bay Area, may be due to business travel. With businesses like Facebook,Google,Apple growing & thriving in our little part of the country, it’s really no wonder! With all of this attention on our area, we’ve also experienced a greater demand of locally themed products. We love our local vendors and are excited that people want to share our local flavors and keepsake items. So, here’s a little sample of our latest Bay Area designs. Let us know how we can help you share your local pride!
Well, it’s the end of the school year, and we have a rush on gifts for teachers. It’s really no wonder, they do the amazing job of educating our children, and lots of them…at the same time. If you’re like me, you really cannot imagine that task on a daily basis. It takes a special kind of person, that’s for sure. We get asked to create all kinds of gifts; small, chocolate, themed, related to hobbies, accompaniments to gift cards, you name it! We realize it is important to show your appreciation for the people that hold this special place in your children’s lives. We’re here for you to make it easy! Welcome to summer!
It always makes me laugh when someone asks me if we can put their gift basket in something besides a basket. Turns out, we really only use true baskets for about 30% of our gift baskets. Some really love the traditional look of a basket. But, truth is, there are unlimited options if you crave something different. Now, if you’re concerned that you need a more serious business look, I’d recommend a magazine rack, trunk, tray, or metal beverage tub. They still have that beautiful, corporate look, just with a little twist!
But, if you really want a very different look, you can add something totally unexpected. And, here’s where your creativity is the only limitation. Often thinking outside the box can allow you to use a container that is very useful or really drives home a theme. Some of our most memorable containers include: a garbage can, ottoman, garden hose, backpack, ice chest, blanket, stadium seats, and so, so many more. Fun stuff! So, hope we inspired you! If you’re stumped on creating a gift un-basket, give us call. We’re always happy to help! Share with us your ideas on what you think would make the most creative gift ever. If we use it, we’ll send you a gift, and it definitely will not be in a basket!
