Simple Pleasures Baskets are now featuring handmade add ins with great detail and flavor!

My Chai tea mix contains Cardamom, an Indian spice, has a sweet, warm taste and an exotic floral aroma.

Most store bought chai tea mixes skip this vital ingredient.
My Chai Tea Mix is made with generous amounts of the best spices!

Simply add this mix to hot water and enjoy.

Well balanced sweetness requires no need to add anything else.

So buy some for yourself snuggle in and sip the warm flavors that will soothe your soul or add it to a gift basket for your favorite person!



Simple Pleasures is also making and selling hand painted chocolates.
 
You can order them here separately or add them to a basket.

 
 
 







They are cute enough to eat!!
 
 
They are so much fun to create!
 
They look even better in baskets!!



 I also love to create these mug'em gifts!  They are perfect for a smaller gift creation full of coffee, teas, or cocoa!

They can be filled with anything from a comfy pair or fuzzy socks to a bookmark!

The list is endless!!!

The price starts at $15.00 and can be delivered to anywhere in the US or Canada!

I am much energized about this Christmas Season.

Please join me on a stroll down Candy Cane Lane to The Simple Pleasures Workshop!


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I have been busy planning, building, cutting and wrapping!

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring not even a mouse;
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there.

 




His eyes -- how they twinkled!  His dimples, how merry!
His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry!
His droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow,
and the beard on his chin was as white as the snow.


 

 















 
 

 

This business doesn't even seem like work.  I love every minute of it.  Putting together each and every basket from the inside out!  I take care to stuff every one with packing materials making sure the whole thing will fit together like a puzzle.


 

I make a list and check it twice when buying for a basket, I try to keep in mind shapes, colors, and sizes so that all the items make a beautiful creation! 
And DON'T FORGET THE CANDY!
I make certain the heaters are on, the coffee is brewed, the holiday music is playing, but most importantly I don't forget to thank God for the season!
 

 
I must say I feel kind of like Santa, except the big red suit!
 
 
 
Santa Claus is anyone who loves another and seeks to make them happy; who gives himself by thought or word or deed in every gift that he bestows.
 
 
Back to my story!!
 

 
 
I really love seeing them line up like little soldiers with their bows sparkling and standing tall!

I have been enjoying this for 9 years with hundreds of gift baskets under my belt and I can still remember some of the first I have created!

I look forward everyday to what I will get to create and build the next!

I adore the idea of gift giving.  Bringing everything as one to make a lovely gift! It is essential that each basket ends with one of my handmade bows, with ribbon and a dash of sparkle.
 








Please snuggle in and enjoy the season!

Don't worry about the gift baskets, I have got them covered!

Just drop me a note at spg410@gmail.com

I will simply assemble a gift, just like Santa!

Boost Employee Morale


 


 

 Boost Employee Morale

Do your employees or co-workers drag into work less than excited to be there?  Are they bored with the office doldrums?

Weekends are short and vacation time off is limited.

 

After all, low morale can lead to poor cooperation, low productivity and increased turnover -- and ultimately hinder a business from reaching its goals.

Since employee morale can quickly build or break a company's success, effective leaders often keep a close eye on it and enlist simple and creative approaches to strengthen it.


 

Need a simple and creative approach to strengthen it?

Think about that! 

So what is an office manager or business owner supposed to do if their work space is suffering in this way?

 

Call Simple Pleasures Gift Creations

Simple Pleasures can take care of this entire dire situation for you. 

With the SIMPLY BIRTHDAY PROGRAM
 
 
Birthday Mug'em
 
1.  We work closely with your company or business to design a gift

2.  You supply the Birthday list of your employees

3.  We take care of the rest

4.  We ship directly to the birthday person at place of business or home if you choose.

 

It’s simply that easy!  Your employees or co-workers will be excited that you remembered their special day.

After all, who doesn’t like a birthday gift?

This is a sure fire way to boost morale and office environment!

We have all price points available starting at as little as $9.95

That’s just like buying your trusted employees 2 lattes a year! 

When it’s stated like that, I think you will agree that they are worth that and more!  Wouldn’t you?

SIMPLE PLEASURES IS LOOKING FORWARD TO WORKING WITH YOU!

Remember when.....


Now I know that I am 38 and a lot of people would say to me, "You are not old enough to say ~remember when,"  with nostalgic whimsy swirling around in my head and all.  But I have seen "Happy Day's!"  Those look like some of the greatest times ever! When The Fonz was cool because he was a rebel, and and the worst thing he ever did was get a "C" in school. 


                                                                        

Things were simpler.  There were no cell phones, apps, facebooks, email, you name it!  We all suffer from over stimulation and can get bogged down at times even though today's technology is absolutely amazing! 

               However, maybe simpler times should be on the agenda for all of us sometimes!

Don't get me wrong, I enjoy technology as much as the next gal.  If not for technology you would not be reading this right now.  But think a minute about what I am saying.


Times when the milk man came to your door and delivered.  No fighting the stores!

Times when families actually sat down to a home cooked meal together and talked about their day!

Times when saying "HI" to a stranger was considered good manners!


Times when girls actually wore clothing that covered their bodies!
                                         
 You get where I am going with all of this!

And why am I choosing to bring this up to you?

It's simple!  Simple Pleasures!


This is the mission behind my store!  This is the core to my values!

This is why I am a stay-at-home Mom, running my business simply.

Customer service is here, smiles are here, caring is here!

The only thing that is missing is the pearls and that way great, pretty dress that June Cleaver used to vacuum her house in!

WHO REALLY DOES THAT? 


Okay, maybe I do! LOL

GLACIER NATIONAL PARK

Taking a much needed break from regular daily life was wonderful!


I thought I was just vacationing, but I was wrong!

I was on a scavenger hunt!  YES! A hunt for rest and relaxation, or so I thought! 
But I was dreadfully wrong! 

Can you see what I found instead?



On the road to Going To The Sun I found...


God? Yes.... But I also found....



MYSELF!!!


And I didn't even know that I was missing!!
