Best Retirement Gift Ideas 2018

Published May 16, 2018        by Matt

Why Send a Retirement Gift? Retirement marks the end of one era and the beginning of another. It is the brink of the unknown, a very literal chapter end and beginning. It is exciting and full of possibilities. It can also, however, be somewhat intimidating. When someone close to you is retiring, it is thoughtful to send them a gift. Not only does the gift celebrate the years of opportunity ahead of them, but it can also honor the decades they have put into their work. These gifts are meaningful because they show how much you care, how much you have noticed, and how much you love and understand them. Perhaps this person needs a gentle reminder that their value is not tied to their productivity, or that they are allowed to rest and enjoy life. Retirement gifts are sentimental, whether small Read more

When it's Okay to Splurge on Gifts

Published April 17, 2013        by Sarah

Deciding exactly what you should spend on that upcoming gift can be a little difficult. While many will tell you to never spend less than $50 at a wedding or never spend more than $50 on a child’s birthday, understanding when you should splurge and when you should stick to the guidelines is tough. Want to stick to the rules? Here are a few reasons it’s okay to splurge on a gift. #1 – The Recipient is Very Important to You One good reason to splurge on a gift is if the person you’ll be giving it to plays a fundamental role in your life. For example, say your favorite niece is getting married. It’s okay to really go all out on a wedding gift basket and let her know how important she is to you. The same is true of a favorite aunt or even retiring college professor. Gifts are Read more

How To Prepare Citrus Fruit Gifts For Mail Shipment

Published December 26, 2012        by Sarah

Why is citrus fruit such an excellent gift idea?  This is the best way to send a little bit of sunshine, a touch of summer, to someone who may be buried under a foot of snow or looking out on a gray, rainy day.  Your gift will not only be appreciated – it will be enjoyed!  Purchasing and shipping pre-made fruit baskets or arrangements can be pricy, especially if you fill in the gaps with some gourmet goodies.  If you make your own, you can save money, but will your package arrive fresh and ready to be eaten or spoiled and bruised?  Whether it's a celebratory gift, or a sympathy fruit basket, here are some pointers for preparing citrus fruits for mail shipment. Fruit Selection Citrus fruits, like oranges, grapefruits, lemons, limes, kumquats, and ugli fruit, are a bit easier to ship Read more

Retirement Party Ideas

Published September 19, 2012        by Sarah

It used to be that retirement parties were somewhat sedate affairs held at restaurants. There was usually a toast given, cocktails were served, and a meal was eaten. And there ended the party. Not so anymore. Today’s retirees are young and hip and ready to start the next phases of their lives. Many are going into a second entrepreneurial business of their dreams or planning to spend lots of time with their grandchildren traveling and exploring the world. So when it comes time to plan a retirement party, think big. You may be a coworker throwing a party for a retiring boss. Or you may be a son or daughter throwing a party for mom or dad. Whatever your relationship to the retiree, you can make it fun and memorable. Hire a band. Who says you all have to sit around the tables in quiet whispers? Read more
