Celebrating an Employee Milestone with Chocolate Covered Strawberries

How do you celebrate a 4-year anniversary at work?

We think such an important employee milestone deserves a delicious corporate gift, so when the time came to celebrate our Social Media Manager’s 4th year with the company, we sent something we knew she’d love: Chocolate Covered Strawberries. Sempronia was kind enough to film the unboxing and taste the first one one camera for us. Check it out!

Choosing Gluten Free Gifts & Foods

For 1 in every 100 people around the world, living without gluten isn’t a fad, it’s a necessity, which is why every season we receive more requests for gluten free gifts. Tragically, celiac disease – an autoimmune disorder – causes damage to its sufferers when they eat foods and products that contain gluten. For family members, friends, and colleagues who enjoy spoiling others with gourmet gifts for the holidays, the mystery of which gifts you can safely send to people with celiac disease can be intimidating.

Navigating this dietary restriction isn’t as difficult as it sounds, though, even for people who only have to worry about gluten free gifts for Christmas, New Year, or the occasional birthday. A lot of items are gluten free already, without having to take steps, make substitutions, or jump through hoops. Other things should always be avoided. Here’s your quick guide to shopping for gourmet foods and gifts without gluten.

Just Moved to the USA? Here’s How To Be A Good Neighbor

It’s a little known fact that September 28th is National Good Neighbor Day in the US. This day is set aside to remind us all what it is to be a good neighbor. Such a day is also a good excuse to go say hello to those people across the way you haven’t managed to introduce yourself to yet.  Maybe you’ve recently immigrated to the US from another country, and need to know: What is a good neighbor? How can you be a good neighbor? How do you deal with bad neighbors? How do you balance being a good neighbor with not being a nosy neighbor?

These are hard questions, and you aren’t alone in asking them. Maintaining a good relationship with your neighbors can be tricky, especially if you’re not familiar with their cultural norms, and your results will vary. Here are some of our tips on learning to be a better neighbor (even if you aren’t a huge fan of the guy next door).

International Gift Delivery Company is Always Growing

GiftBasketsOverseas.com makes its 5th appearance on the Inc. 500|5000 list, proving its growth isn’t slowing down.

Gourmet Gift Basket to USAARLINGTON, Mass., Aug. 29, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — GiftBasketsOverseas.com (GBO), is thrilled to announce it has made its 5th appearance on the Inc. 500|5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in America, ranking #4256 for 2017. To make it onto the list 5 times in a row is a rare feat, only achieved by less than a tenth of those who make the list.  In an already impressive list that has included international sensations like Microsoft and Vizio, being in the top tenth means that something truly great is happening inside of the company.

The company’s owner, Dmitiry Peregudov, stated “I’m thrilled that my company, and my team, are being recognized for all the hard work we’ve done this year. I work with some of the best and most dedicated people I could ask for, and this just proves it.”

GiftBasketsOverseas.com thrives on its business model that truly puts the customer first. As the company has grown, its personal attention to detail has remained a constant. “More automation could make us faster,” admits Mr Peregudov. “But when you’re dealing with gifts to loved ones, it feels better to know there’s a human right on the other side of your order. It’s what I would want for my family, so it’s what I feel I must give to my customers.”
