To Market To Market - In Search of the Best Gifts

Tomorrow starts the Chicago Gift Market, where we traipse twice a year (winter and summer) scouring the Merchandise Mart for the best new gifts to add to our gift basket collection.  I do love July and January for this reason:  I get to shop, shop, shop!

Every show I have 3 objectives: Plan, Browse, and Buy. 

Before the show (Plan), I make a list of what I need to replace, what I need to reinforce, and what I need to revise. 

At the show (Browse), I get to see what's new and trendy, discover new themes, and taste, test, and try.

After the show (Buy), and this is the hardest part since I always find so many wonderful products, I narrow down the list from Plan and Browse and place my orders for all of your wonderful new gift basket options!

Year round seasonal products for all of our holiday gift baskets:

Two of our favorite candle makers, Gabriel John and Green Daffodil, are always a joy to see!


And there is so much more, so follow us on Facebook or subscribe here to our blog and see what's coming! 

Have a happy day!
