Designer Wall Art

Architectural Letters and Signs Add Unique Yet Affordable Designer Touch
Spiff up your walls with our new line of affordable Architectural Signs. If you have been looking for the perfect designer touch for your walls then you have come to right place. We have just added three new Architectural designer pieces to our Personalized Sign Collection in the Sign Shop at Arttowngifts.com.

Featured on the Oprah Show in O Magazine each piece in this collection is unique and incorporates a different feel. Select an Architectural Framed Sign for your home or office or give one to someone special as a one-of-a-kind and memorable gift. The good news is that these true works of art are finally available for a reasonable price. They add a touch of class to any wall and are suitable for home or office use.

Architectural Personalized Name Frame
Our Architectural Personalized Letters Frame features 4 to 9 single letters styled from old fashioned and modern architectural elements in a narrow matted high quality black frame to set off the letters. You choose the letters. For example select your business name for the office or your family name for the family room, home office or study. Another popular version is to design an inspirational sign by decorating with a word like dream, love, peace, hope or faith.

Architectural Name Frame II
An alternative version is our Architectural Three Character Frame which includes three letters or symbols of your choice in a 10 inch x 17 inch frame with a large charcoal grey mat surrounded by a black frame. This affordable piece combines art, architecture and nature into an exceptional piece of art for a true designer look. Similar pieces sell for over $150 while our piece is regularly only $ 50.99 and is on sale for a limited time for $44.99. This piece has been featured in many designer magazines including Oprah's O Magazine among others. It is an ideal solution when you need to add an interesting wall element for punch in a small space.

Architectural Letter Frame Singles
Our Architectural Personalized Single Letters Frames originate from architectural pieces. Each letter or symbol is individually framed, allowing you the freedom to display each piece in a variety of creative ways as you hang them on your wall. Each frame measures 4 inches x 6 inches. Order as many as you would like to create the look you desire. These single letter frames are my favorite of the three both for my house and office but also as gifts for my friends and co-workers. I actually ordered a single letter for every member of my bridge group. These single letters normally sell for only $9 but are on sale for even less at $6.99. They make great gifts when you need a little something for a group of people but need to watch the budget. Not only are they affordable they are personal. Single letters are an outstanding addition to an office or home study wall.

Regardless of the application choose for your room, you are sure to love to your our new Architectural Art. Unlike their more expensive counter parts all three of these affordable designs can be ordered and shipped in just a few days. You can even add a hand written gift card.

We also offer the traditional Create Your Own Sign if you need more a traditional look or longer personalization. You can select the size, type, color and contents of this custom wood sign. Remember to visit Arttowngifts.com when you need gifts for any occasion.

Bosses Deserve Their Day

Pat your Boss on the back with a gift this Boss's Day.This last year has certainly been a difficult one for anyone involved in running a business. What with the economy rolling off a cliff as some have described the recent financial challenges, bosses have faced more than their share of difficult decisions. While many of us have taken on more work due to lay offs, our bosses have struggled to make ends meet and keep our businesses, large and small, afloat. This is the one time of the year that we acknowledge their dedication instead of resenting their demands.

Boss's Day is Friday October 16th.
So have a pow wow and decide on a great boss's day gift to tell your boss you understand their hard work. Whether you prefer to purchase a gift as a group or buy separate gifts, there is a plethora of great gift ideas most of which you can order online. So let's Executive Gift Basketstart with the obvious. Get the boss a gift basket. You can go for something with an executive theme such as the Executive's Gourmet Desk Caddy. The great thing about this gift is that the gourmet goodies such as pastry cookies, brownies, crackers, cheese, truffles and popcorn fudge all come packed in a keepsake solid wood caddy with antique brass latch. So your boss will have the chest for years to come long after all the treats have been consumed.

In honor of a job well done give a Wine Basket.
If your company is still alive after the last year then your boss has done a good job. So give him or her a round of applause and the opportunity to enjoy a nice toast with a high end yet affordable wine basket. Consider the Extravagant Wine Lovers & Gourmet Basket. This gift includes two acclaimed red wines paired with high end gourmet delights such as smoked salmon, Italian biscotti, signature caviar, truffles and more all arranged in a top stitched black leather tray ...perfect for later use as a desk top out box or in box depending on your boss's workflow.

Prefer something more personal ...
A personalized gift is always a good idea for occasions such as Bosses Day. For a female boss you might want to consider a Heart Shaped Silver Paper Weight which can be engraved with two lines leaving room for your boss's name and either the company name or the current year. For the guys a Personalized Multi-Purpose Tool for their pocket or glove compartment is a a good idea. Gadgets likes these are truly functional so they are sure to be appreciated for many years to come.

What about handmade desk accessories and writing instruments?
What is better than a fancy writing instrument? The answer is a handmade fancy pen with name brand insides. That is exactly the description of our Wall Street II Style Ballpoint Pen. It is a hand turned pen with Montblanc mechanisms on the inside. You can choose to have your pen crafted from a variety of materials such as Ebony woods, fine acrylics and wood burls. In addition you can order matching desk accessories such as a triple magnifying glass or letter opener for a complete set. These hand crafted desk sets look like they cost thousand of dollars when in reality they are truly affordable. You can purchase a pen for only $59.95.

What ever you decide, be sure to let your boss know that you do appreciate the hard work and stress they face to keep people on the payroll and businesses functioning.

Grandparents Day Gift Ideas

wine basket for grandparent's day giftGrandparents Day is the Sunday after Labor Day
Have you made arrangements for a Grandparent's Day Gift? If you haven't already sent a gift now is the time to decide how you will honor your grandparents for their special day. I know that sometimes it seems there is an over abundance of holidays but trust me your grandparents appreciate when they are remembered. So even if you do not send a gift or a card, remember to give them a call or visit on Grandparent's Day.

Last Minute Gift Ideas for Grandparents' Day
You can always send your grandmother or grandfather a gift basket. Most companies such as Arttowngifts.com can arrange to have gifts delivered up until the last minute before a holiday. At Arttowngifts.com we even offer a complete selection of same day gifts which can be delivered on the same day you place your order. Of course the sooner you place your order the better. Last minute gift choices include wine gifts, fruit baskets, balloon bouquets and florist arranged flowers. Both the wine and fruit gifts come with a nice selection of gourmet foods. You can also add chocolates to the balloons and balloons to the various baskets. Just keep in mind that Sundays can be problematic in terms of delivery particularly in smaller towns so please try to place your order in time for Friday or Saturday delivery.

Gifts Available for Next Day Delivery
Most of our gifts are available for immediate shipping for next day delivery (using expedited shipping methods) including our flowers delivered direct from the grower. These flower bouquets provide great value. You receive significantly more flowers for the price and the arrangements normally last much longer than florist arranged flowers. This is because they are cut just before being shipped to the final recipient. If you prefer a more lasting gift than fresh flowers, consider our gold roses which come in a variety of styles and colors. These "dipped roses" are real roses that are dipped in gold, silver, platinum or lacquer in order preserve them. They should ultimately become family heirlooms and keepsakes. Our complete line of gift baskets including gift collections that encompass all kinds of hobby themes can be shipped the same day you place your order. I like the fact that you can make your selection personal. For example if your grand dad likes to play golf then send him a golf gift basket. If your grandmom likes to garden send her a garden gift basket.
As you can see there are lots of choices for ways to remember your papa and granny. There is still time to place an order or send a card. What ever you decide to do for Grandparent's day just be sure to let your grandma and grandpa know how much they mean to you.

Last Minute Valentine Gifts - Flowers from Arttowngifts.com

Time to Order Last Minute Valentine's Day Gifts from Arttowngifts.com
The clock is ticking down to Valentine's Day. Get those Valentine’s Day Gifts ordered so you can make certain to get the gift you want and avoid expedited shipping charges. Guys, PLEASE do not wait until the last minute assuming that your local florist will be able to handle your order for Valentine Flowers. We work with florists every day for delivery of balloons, gift baskets and flowers. You should know that:

Florists routinely stop taking orders several days before and after Valentine's Day
To complicate things even more, Valentines Day is on Saturday this year. So please get those orders placed with us or where ever else you plan to make your purchase.

Flowers Added to Arttowngifts.com
You asked for flowers online and we listened. We are thrilled to announce that Arttowngifts now offers flowers including roses, mixed bouquets and plants. We offer two ways buy. You can select from our shipped flowers that are cut fresh from the fields for next day delivery direct from our own growers or choose our same day flower delivery arranged through local florists in the recipient’s delivery area. Each online flower ordering method offers great advantages and some disadvantages. We outline these in depth further on our site. In the meantime here is a quick synopsis:

Farm Fresh Flowers - Cost Less and Last Longer
The farm fresh flowers routinely feature significantly lower prices and greater quality because the flowers are fresher. They are grown locally instead of being shipped in from other countries. The flowers are cut one day and delivered to you the next. The only way to get fresher flowers is to grow them yourself!

Grower Direct Flowers - Shipped for Next Day Delivery - Arrive In A Gift Box
The disadvantage to some buyers is that while the flowers arrive in a nice gift box, the bouquets are not already professionally styled in a vase due to shipping issues. As a result, arranging the flowers is up to the recipient. However, if you take a quick glance at most florist websites you will see that a large portion of the arrangements feature very little design effort. There are usually a few seasonally advertised great FTD or Teleflora designs. Otherwise, it is just flowers in a vase for the most part. We offer our customers those cute designs through our florist arranged deliveries. Each of the Grower Direct Flower Gifts come with a floral preservative and flower care information.

Women Enjoy Arranging Flowers
Most women I know really enjoy arranging the flowers they receive. To my dismay I have seen friends take a nicely designed florist bouquet and tear it apart just to put the flowers in several vases so they could enjoy the flowers in more than one location. If I am sending a floral gift to a woman in most cases I would opt for the grower fresh overnight flowers. That way she can enjoy designing her own arrangement and also have a gift that will last the longest. And I will save a little bit on the purchase of the gift or buy more flowers than I could have from a florist.

Direct from the Fields Flowers Fully Bloom After They ArriveThe direct from the fields to you flowers are selected and cut before the blooms totally open. This is so that the flowers will reach their maximum beauty after they arrive and to insure longevity. Florists delivered bouquets are better if you prefer that the flowers be at their peak when they arrive. Finally there is a minor risk of the flowers being damaged in shipping but this is covered in the guarantee and the same risk applies to floral delivery drivers.

Florist Delivered Flowers - Delivered Same Day - Professionally Arranged
There are two main advantages offered by florist delivered flowers. We can schedule same day flower delivery if you call early enough in the day. Plus the flowers arrive professionally arranged in a vase. The main disadvantage we find with florist delivery is that we deal with florists from across the country so the arrangements do not always closely resemble the photos. Ninety-nine percent of the time florists make a herculean effort to do a good job and deliver an outstanding product but sometimes they take a little poetic license. If you want same day flower delivery, the deadline is noon in the recipient's time zone. Our site says 11:30 am to give us time to get the orders to the florist.

Florist Delivered Flowers - Better for Hospitals, Funerals & Grand Openings
If you want a really cute design from the get-go, you should select the florist arranged and delivered flowers. This is particularly true in the case of sympathy flowers or get well flowers delivered to hospitals. We find that it is much better to use florist arranged delivery for hospitals and funerals because the delivery driver can actually walk the flowers to the correct location. And the arrangment is ready to go. I would also select our florist same day delivery when you need to send a bouquet to a group such as a business grand opening or a staff thank you. If you have questions about the best delivery method for your situation give us a call toll free at 1 877 278-8696.

Red Roses - The Traditional Valentines Day Flower
So now that we have discussed the ways to order, lets look at some ideas for Valentines Day Flowers. Of course we offer the traditional Dozen Red Valentine Roses decked out for Valentine’s Day. My favorite is the Dozen Red & White Long Stem Roses. And don't forget we always have our delightful Gold Roses. These are real roses dipped in 24 K gold. There are other varieties available. Regardless of what you decide, I am sure you will love our new flower collection.
