April 2012
Mother’s Day is right around the corner, and now is the time to order your Mother’s Day gifts. Ordering a Mother’s Day gift now not on ensures that your mom will have a gift on May 10th, but also saves you money because you will not have to pay for any expedited shipping. Ordering gifts last minute can incur some hefty shipping rates. Heavier gifts such as gift baskets can cost $50.00 to $60.00 to ship overnight, and if money is tight, expensive shipping charges are last thing you want to pay for. Here are a few gift ideas for Mom when shopping for Mother’s Day this year.

Not sure if you should get your mother jewelry or roses this Mother’s Day. Why not get her both. Take a look at Arttowngifts.com full line of gold, silver, and platinum roses. gold roses, platinum roses, and silver roses are lasting gifts that mom is sure to love. These roses are also available in a variety of colors with gold or platinum trim. Certain roses can even be personalized, so mom will never forget how much you care. You also can add a vase specifically designed to hold your roses, so mom can display her new gift anywhere she wants.

If your mother is anything like mine, as soon as the sun is shining and the mercury is rising, she is outside tending to her garden. If this is the case with your mother, you might want to consider a gardening gift basket. Last year my mother loved the Gardening Pleasures Gift Tote that I got her. This gardening gift contains everything a gardener could want like gardening tools, seeds, and snacks.

Maybe you've giving jewelery and gift baskets in the past, and you are looking for something new and different. The Mother's Day Fortune Cookie and Teddy Bear might be the perfect gift for you. This unique gift contains an enormous vanilla fortune cookie baked to order and hand dipped it in your choice of Belgian Chocolates or Golden Caramel. The cookie is then finished with candy sprinkles and is accompanied by an adorable teddy bear. What makes this gift great is you can have the fortune say whatever you'd like. If I'm looking to add a little something to this gift, I'll turn the fortune into a coupon by entering a message like, “good for one free car wash, or good for one free dinner of your choice.” This will make a sweet gift a little sweeter.

This Mother’s Day remember the three B’s; bling, baskets, and baked goods when selecting a gift. Stick with the B’s and you are sure to get Mom a gift she’ll love. Just remember to do yourself a favor and order early.

Gone are the days of secretaries; in this fast-paced, multitasking, technologically advanced workplace, administrative professionals are the cornerstone of most offices and small businesses. They probably wear more hats than any other employee, and like it or not they very well might be more important to day to day operations than the boss. These are all reasons why you need to show your appreciation this year and here a few great ways to show it.

A great gift for any administrative professional is gift baskets. It does not matter whether the recipient is male or female the right gift basket has something for everyone. Wine gift baskets are a great way to show your administrative professional you care, but sometimes the workplace is not an appropriate place for alcohol. If this is the case at your office then check out the Executive’s Gourmet Desk Caddy sold by Arttowngifts.com. This wonderful gift has a ton of sweet and savory snacks that are packed into a beautiful wood desk caddy. Even after the treats are gone this gift can still be used as office decor.

Does it look like your administrative professional is about to spend November in Bali every morning she shows up to work? With all the tasks an administrative professional has to complete in a day it is no wonder they need a quiver full of tools to complete these tasks. It is not uncommon for an administrative professional to need a laptop computer, tablet, notepads, lunch, a change of clothes, or any number of other objects that they need personally or professionally to complete a day. This Administrative Professionals Day think about giving a tote bag to help them carry their load. Arttowngifts.com offers a whole line of tote bag gifts. My favorite all around tote is the Beach Bag Personalized Tote. This bag is big enough to carry all your needs and comes in your choice of colors.

You trying to keep it simple this year? Then how about giving a classic gift like a coffee mug? The Monogram Coffee Mug is a heavy duty ceramic mug can be personalized with one initial in your choice of two styles. If you have a coffee enthusiast in your office you can always pair the Monogram Coffee Mug with any of Arttowngifts.com coffee gift baskets.

This April 25th make sure to take care of the administrative professionals in your office. They take care of everything else for you all year long. The least you can do is take care of them this Administrative Professionals Day.
