This was our Instagram post this morning, first blooms of the season:
With the sun shining, the temps rising, and these beautiful blossoms, I am inspired for Spring! Inspired enough to quickly launch a Spring Sale to put you in a little Spring mood too!
What are you celebrating this Spring? New babies, new home, new puppy, Easter, bridal shower…the list goes on. There are so many great spring occasions. We have 7 birthdays in April alone! With so many occasions during the spring season, we are inspired to bring you this list of our favorite gift ideas for each occasion and a special savings to kick off the season!
SPRING GIFT GUIDE
New home – This is one of my favorite gifts, particularly for the colorful melamine chip-n-dip platter and the matching tea towel. I love the sentiments - perfect for a housewarming gift or a wedding gift! That’s not to say the two dip mixes aren’t just as appealing. They are handmade in Pennsylvania and have a very savory flavorful quality.
Easter – This Easter gift basket was a favorite last year for its festive Easter colors and excellent variety of snacks. We’ve updated it a bit with some of our newer favorite snack items. A perfect gift for your Easter hostess.
Bridal shower – Coastal Salt and Soul is one of my newest favorite bath and body makers. Inspired by the sea, their all natural soaps, body butters, hand creams and candles are to die for! Whether you are the bride, an attendant, or an attendee, this luxurious soap set will make the perfect gift. Or contact us directly and we can set you up with a custom gift set.
Spring birthday – I chose this birthday gift set for its variety of product and because it just screams SPRING! What could be more girly than a bold butterfly vase, hand poured candle, utmost important notes portfolio and a decadent box of chocolates. Perfection!
Graduation – it’s the perfect sentiment to encourage the graduate at any level: Dream Big! We chose this 8x8 canvas art from our favorite Glory Haus, maker of original inspirational art and giftware.
Mother’s Day – Just one of our many delightful gifts for mom, this collection is the perfect mix of gourmet snacks and home gifts. I just love when a gift set satisfies my tastes as well as my daily functional needs :)
Admin’s Day – The admin assistant in your life deserve to know they’re indispensable, so you probably give them an awesome gift at the end of the year. But Admin’s Day on April 26th is a great day to show your gratitude on a smaller scale. This adorable owl mug comes filled with the most decadent handmade chocolates, so how can you go wrong?
New Baby – If a baby is on the way, get ready to welcome him or her in style and elegance with this organic bath towel, all natural bath products, and more for baby’s bath and bedroom. Nothing but the best for the newborn babe.
And now for the next week (ending 3/31) you can get

Last week, we shipped a housewarming gift basket to Fox Island, Washington. Where is that, you ask? It’s an island in Puget Sound, population 3,633. From the Fox Island Community and Recreation Association, it looks something like this:One of our corporate customers has a client who relocated to Fox Island, and they called us with a request for a [...]

This week is Random Acts of Kindness Week. These days I feel like everything I read is the opposite of kindness. Be it on social media, the news, online, I am inundated with negativity and ugliness. That makes this week of kindness seem more important than ever. As I was thinking about writing today's post, [...]
We’re coming up on Super Bowl 51 this weekend and whether you’re a Falcons or Patriots fan, or in it for the commercials and Lady Gaga, you’re probably planning to host or attend a watching party.Every year we gather with friends for the big game, and usually keep the menu along the lines of football food. That could [...]
Do All Things with Love is my favorite current day quote. I have it on a small plaque hanging in our kitchen, and I'm seeing it everywhere. That's why I picked the framed quote to be included in our Valentine's Day giveaway. I've always thought of Valentine's Day as being about much more than just [...]
How often do you send a greeting card just because? Thinking of you, missing you, or a special thanks are all great ways to send expressions of kindness. Maybe you know someone who is going through a difficult time. Receiving an unexpected card in the mail with words of wisdom and kindness might be just the pick-me-up they need. [...]
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, is it time to consider a romantic getaway? Some of the most romantic weekend getaways exist in the most populated destinations in the US. Here are a few to consider. I’ll Take Manhattan. You can spend a fabulous weekend in New York City and stay either at the Marriott Hotel on Broadway, [...]
Random Acts of Kindness Day is officially observed on February 17. While we like to promote acts of kindness on that day, we thought it would be an even better idea to promote kindness all year long, starting with the very first of the New Year! Walking into stores immediately after Christmas Day, the first thing I saw was aisles [...]
When it comes to Christmas I'm a traditionalist. I go into full decorating mode. I insist on baking a variety of cookies. I send snail mail Christmas cards. We host an annual holiday open house. And (as you might guess) I love giving gifts so shopping and wrapping is a must. As you might also [...]
