The best kept secret is the joy of having a baby

FILED IN Uncategorized Comments Off

Taking a look at babies make us smile. All of the babies are cute and lovely. Interacting with babies normally takes all our problems away. Laughing babies are certainly adorable.

While pregnant, you’ll get lots of advice about how to function on no sleep and deal with babyhood’s bummers. So once your little munchkin arrives you may be surprised by how many pleasures tag along for the ride. Consider all these benefits of being a new mommy and you’ll be looking on the bright side, too!

1. Baby Adores You

When you talk in a funny voice or blow raspberries, your rapt audience of one goes nuts. Put a shoe on your head and your baby will assure you you’re hilarious. Making your sweetie laugh gets addictive! It’s enough to spur you to sing all the time, even if you can’t carry a tune.

2. You Gain a Feeling of Belonging

At first, you miss sleeping in, going out for grown-up meals, and being part of the late-night movie crowd. But your old life is quietly replaced with a different sense of community. As your baby grows, you’ll discover the best story hours, kids’ museums, parks, and baby-tolerant restaurants

3. You’ll Make New Friends

Coworkers aside, you don’t get very many chances to make lasting friendships after high school and college. Then pregnancy comes, and you’ve got an open door again.

4. Your Heart Opens SO Wide

Suddenly, the inconsolable baby crying next to you on a flight gets your empathy instead of your ire. Mothering gives you the ability to step into other parents’ shoes, and you appreciate the giant job they undertake with their own kids.

5. You Get Things Done

Remember those old days, when time would slip by and you’d think, “What have I done all day?” Yeah, I’ve forgotten them too. Motherhood has a way of turning you into an efficiency expert — you’ll never look at a spare 20 minutes the same way again!

6. You Know What Matters

Your house may be a mess for a while. But you learn to be a little less precious about your belongings. ” You may find yourself giving away items that, you realize, you don’t really need. Living with more love and less stuff is liberating!

Why Fun at Work Matters

FILED IN Uncategorized Comments Off

If people are having fun, they’re going to work harder, stay longer, maintain their composure in a crisis and take better care of the organization. Here’s one example.

The trend certainly is getting a push from workers who want a better work-life balance, but many companies also have learned that fun increases the bottom line. “Fun at work can provide a competitive advantage”.

Com­pan­ies that integ­rate fun into work cul­ture, have lower levels of absent­ee­ism, greater job sat­is­fac­tion, increased pro­ductiv­ity and less down time. Doesn’t that sound like some­thing we should all be striv­ing for?

Hav­ing fun boosts one’s abil­ity to think out­side the box and solve prob­lems.  Fun is a great cre­at­ive engine.  What’s more, people are attrac­ted to fun work­places.

Here are three helpful tips to keep positive and have fun at work:

Keep a ‘glass half-full’ attitude at all times. The more you look at situations and problems with a positive attitude, the more fun you will have. Honest.

Sing! Dance! A little spring in your step or a quick little ditty will never hurt anyone – it will immediately change your mood.

Be light & funny. A little humor or light comment always brings in a little sunshine to the office.

As an employer, our #1 tip is to show some appreciation. Why not surprise your employees or your vendors with unique “Corporate” Gift Basket from Giftbasketsplus.com.

So what are you waiting for? Go have some fun!

GiftBasketsPlus.com Shares Tips for Making a Spooky Halloween Gift Basket

FILED IN Uncategorized Comments Off

Halloween is just around the corner and all across the country, people are thinking about what they should get for the special people in their lives who celebrate the holiday. One gift that is always appreciated is a gift basket. Here is a list of gruesome goodies and ghoulish gifts for creating a Halloween themed gift basket.

1. Basket: Instead of using a traditional basket to hold your Halloween treats, be creative. Great items to use for a basket are: Halloween treats bags, totes shaped like monster heads, plastic jack-o-lanterns or even just a simple black box. Make sure it is sufficiently sized so that all the items will fit snugly. Party stores, craft shops and stores that sell decorative home goods are great places to find items to use for a basket.

2. Goodies: Halloween themed chocolate and candy is readily available this time of year and will give the basket just the right look. Halloween pretzels, Halloween marshmallow peeps, Reese’s peanut butter filled Halloween pumpkins, skulls and bones sweet tarts, gummy bugs and skeletons, marshmallow eyeballs and eyeball lollipop’s are just some of the Halloween goodies available to add to the basket. With this holiday being so based on candy, the stores are filled with a plethora of items to choose from.

3. Toys: If the basket is being made for a young person or just someone young at heart, a few Halloween themed toys will make a fun addition to the basket. Monster ball and cup game, Silly string, Halloween yo-yo’s, glow in the dark bracelets and necklaces, glow in the dark vampire fangs or plush animals adorn in Halloween costumes and even Halloween spooky sounds cd’s all make great activity items for the basket.

4. Filler: Add some type of filler to the bottom of the basket such as tissue paper, crinkle cut filler or foam.

5. Presentation: A nice touch is to have all the items face outwards, giving the basket a great appearance from the front or back. To fill in the gaps between the items and keep them from shifting down, add some fun sized candy. Another great way to keep items from shifting is to use adhesive glue dots. Just stick the items to each other but make sure items are stuck together in a decorative manner.
6. Use a decorative themed bow: Hand tie a bow made of either ribbon or fabric in Halloween designs or colors, such as orange or black.

7. Finally, attach a handwritten gift card
