Two years ago, while at my desk at work, the front desk notified me that something was delivered and waiting for me downstairs. You know how you feel when you get "that" call. You feel butterflies, you think of your husband or your boss or someone that most likely sent you flowers. You feel so excited as you walk to the reception area to claim your prize. Just think of how excited I was when I was greeted by a huge gift basket overflowing with kitchen items and sweets in a beautiful box! The box was wrapped in clear wrapping paper and a huge blue/white check bow on top! I was walking on sunshine. I couldn't wait to get back to my desk and see who had been that thoughtful and generous and what was inside of this beautiful box! I unwrapped the bow slowly, careful to not ruin the display, but eventually I just tore into everything because of the sheer excitement. I read the card and saw that it was from two women I worked with that were just thanking me for my good work. It was the ultimate thank you. Within a few minutes of hearing my ooo's and ahhh's, a small crowd formed around my desk touching all the goodies in the box, asking me where it came from, wanting to know all about this special present. Everyone wanted a box now, too! It created such a good mood around the workplace that day - many felt very happy seeing me get something so nice - it's amazing what a good gesture can do! It was such a great gift and I'll never forget that feeling. When I found out where the box came from, Bank Village in Amherst, I visited the store and saw the most beautiful array of gifts and foods. It's such a lovely shop. When my friend in Manchester was going through a tough time, I arranged with Bank Village to send her a gift box and she loved it and was so impressed that they went all the way out there to deliver it to her. I love the Bank Village Gift Shop and HIGHLY suggest it to anyone that wants to give someone you love something special that doesn't die in a few days. In fact, as I type this, I'm looking over at my box that I still have on display on a shelf, only now in my home office. It holds stationary and I use it often - over 2 years now. What great memories it gives me everytime I see it on my shelf. Bank Village is responsible for that feeling - thank you BV Gift Baskets!
