Now that the holiday rush is (mostly) behind us, we've been reflecting a lot on the past year and establishing goals for 2021. To say this year has been challenging would be a huge understatement. But I don't need to tell you that – we've all experienced our own version of this strange new world right along with each other, 6 feet apart. 

Despite the challenges, 2020 turned out to be a pretty good year for Smiling Tree! Keep scrolling for our list of highlights, and learn big plans we have for 2021.

Most Popular Smiling Tree Gifts

We expanded our line of sustainable corporate gifts in 2020 to include more options for businesses seeking an earth-friendly alternative to corporate gifting. Here are the most loved gifts of the year.

  1. Desktop Blocks with Tray

    This Smiling Tree Gifts signature item is once again at the top of the list for 2020. Organizations especially loved commemorating employee anniversaries with this set, but we also had businesses customize the blocks in new and fun ways, too. We can't wait to see what exciting ideas you come up with in 2021!
  2. Statement Blocks
    Core Values Statement Blocks
    A company's values have become even more prominent in 2020, with many organizations displaying them front and center in our Statement Blocks. This is not only a great way to communicate those oh-so-important values with clients and customers, but also remind employees of why you do what you do every single day.
  3. Credit Card Bottle Opener

    We all needed a little fun this year, so it's no surprise that our Credit Card Bottle Openers finish off the list! This modern spin on a classic gift is a highly appreciated gift that keeps businesses top-of-mind all year long.

Planting Trees

The earth is a little greener this year thanks to our incredible customers. Along with our sister company, Smiling Tree Toys, we planted 22,338 trees (and counting!).

Smiling Tree planted 22,338 trees in 2020!

Bring on 2021

If nothing else, 2020 taught us that we are resilient and capable of great things even when faced with unforeseen obstacles. That's why we have decided 2021 is the year we completely ditch plastic packaging! We've been working towards this goal for a while now, and finally feel we have found the solutions to check this one off our list in our mission to become even more sustainable and further green the earth for future generations.

We hope you follow along with us in 2021 to discover what the future has in store for Smiling Tree Gifts!
