Romantic Gift to Copenhagen, Denmark

09 Sep

“I found this company after a horrible experience with ‘Pickupflowers’. My girlfriend lives in Denmark while im here in the U.S. and I wanted to send her something special and after reading some great reviews about ‘GiftBasketOverseas’, I decided to go forward with them. I would of given them five stars but couldn’t do that due to two small but annoying mistakes. First I asked numerous times and even included it as a special instruction requesting that when they call my girlfriend that they don’t tell her who the purchaser was, I at least wanted that part to be a surprise. All they needed to say is “we have a gift from a friend of yours and need your address” I didn’t mind the part of them calling her since I don’t have her address and asking myself would easily ruin the surprise plus I knew they would have to confirm she would be available for the delivery due to the nature of the gift contents. They assured me nobody calling her would even know who the purchaser is because the florist doesn’t have that information but what happens? I get a text from my girlfriend after their call to her bleeding with joy because somebody told her “hey we have a delivery from so and so and need your address” …well thanks!!! I mean I know she would of suspected it was me regardless but I could of played it off saying maybe the ‘friend’ is somebody else or a family member but nope, they took the joy for me right out of it! I still tried to play it off as best I could which didn’t work. I also should mention, my girlfriend told me later on that she did press the lady quite a bit on the matter BUT said it was mainly because the lady they had calling had a very harsh accent which was very hard to understand and she was almost ready to hang up on her, I understand this can be a touchy thing but maybe just consider having those of their home country call or use people with little to no accent. Secondly, they spelled my name wrong on the card and I confirmed several times that I submitted the signature correctly! Another small but annoying mistake because she wants to put this card up on the wall but it doesn’t look too good when it’s some random joes name on the card!! But all in all, my girlfriend was soooo overwhelmed with her gift and even though she knew ‘”something” was on the way, she had no idea it would be so beautiful!! I wish I could attach the pictures!!! The bouquet was full of lively roses amounting to between 35-40 roses after counting!!! Chocolates provided by the best Danish chocolate company in Denmark!! Surprisingly, good quality wine that we are waiting to pop together on my next flight out there!! and a nice teddy bear to top it all off!! And did I mention it came out $20 cheaper than with ‘Pickupflowers’ and it came with two extra gifts!! So overall, the good definitely outweighed the mistakes!!

Top 5 Gifts for Rosh Hashanah

07 Sep

Jewish New Year also known as Rosh Hashanah starts this year on Sunday September, 13 2015 and ends on Tuesday September, 15. This significant two day celebration commemorates the creation of the world, man and marks the time for purification and renewal.

Like any other important celebration in the Jewish calendar, Rosh Hashanah is associated with traditional symbols and gifts. To make this coming holiday special for your dear recipients send them one of this top Rosh Hashanah gift ideas:

#1 Honey Dishes
>
One of the unique Rosh Hashanah traditions include eating various foods that symbolize all the good things Jewish people hope to have in the upcoming year. The most popular holiday food is honey which people often use for dipping apples and bread into, and pray for a sweet New Year. Select from a large variety of beautiful honey gifts to make sure your dear recipients have a delightful and delicious year.
>
#2 Round Challah
>
After apples and honey, Jewish challah bread is the second most important food symbol of Rosh Hashanah. This braided egg bread shaped like a crown symbolizes the cycle of the year, circle of life and continuity. Sometimes raisins or honey are added to the recipe in order to make the taste even sweeter.
>

#3 Kosher Gift Baskets
>
Most probably, there will be more than enough food at the festive New Year table but that doesn’t mean your dear relatives, friends or business associates wouldn’t be happy to receive their own Kosher gift basket full of Israeli all time favorite goodies. Filled to the brim with a variety of fruit, honey, challah bread, dried fruit, chocolate, wine, and other treats such gift baskets make one of the most desirable Rosh Hashanah gifts.

#4 Pomegranate
>
Cultivated in the Mediterranean for thousands of years, the pomegranate is referenced many times throughout the Bible. Jewish people believe that its many seeds represent holiness, abundance, and wisdom. On Rosh Hashanah festive table pomegranate symbolizes the number of good deeds that people hope to do in the coming year.
>

#5 Shofar
>
Is a traditional and one of the oldest Jewish instruments made of a hollow ram’s horn. Its trumpet like sound was historically used for number of purposes, from signifying the beginning of a holiday to a war. Now the shofar is mostly associated with the Jewish New Year and the shofar blowing is a symbolic way to recognize God as creator of all people.
