    Great Product!

    I ordered blocks with our catch phrases on them for our leadership team. I was not disappointed. Even better than expected.

    So much better than expected!


    Our order arrived today and we simply LOVE the blocks! the engraving is marvelous. I wasn’t sure the logo would be legible, since it’s so tiny, but it came out clear and perfect.

    We’re looking forward to giving these to our Board Members at our first meeting this month. Thank you so much for the prompt processing and shipping.

    The staff are a little disappointed that we don’t get our own 😊

    Thanks for the glowing review, Catherine! Maybe a little hint to your leadership will encourage them to have us make more blocks and trays for ALL of your staff ;)

    Excellent attention to detail and ornament quality

    Even during November which I am sure is a busy time, our custom ornament order was processed in a friendly, professional, and quick manner. The wood is lovely and the added hanging ribbons were much appreciated! Thank you Kathy, Justin, and crew!

    Amazing Quality

    We're a repeat customer for a few reasons. One - Excellent customer service. Two - Unique gift options with precise quality. Three - We appreciate supporting a small, locally owned business. Our Core Value blocks have been fun to give our new staff and board members. Thanks, Smiling Tree Gifts!

    We absolutely love partnering with other Minnesota-based businesses, too, Erica. And are soooo thankful to continue to earn your trust and support! :)

    High Quality for High Value

    This product was perfect for a personalized gift for our conference participants. We customized the design with our organization's core values and used the gift in on-site training sessions. Everyone loved the Core Values Desktop Blocks. The product was high quality and delivered a high value for our participants. Additionally, we also had a most pleasurable customer experience working with the smiling tree team.

    So appreciative of your kind words, Carlos! We were honored to earn your business and hope to have you visit us again when the time is right!

    Quality Product & Excellent Customer Care

    We ordered Staff Values Display Block for our new team values. Our staff LOVED the blocks as display on their desks as they are clean, simple and good quality. Thanks so much for your timeliness, communication and care of our order.

    So happy to hear your blocks were so well received, Mara! Thank you again for the opportunity to make them for you.

    Excellent Product & Customer Service

    I was pleased with my entire experience - from placing the order, to the proof and receiving the product. Everything was done in a timely manner, it was well communicated and the blocks were a big hit with our members! Will definitely be back in the future to place other orders!

    That's great news all around, Bill! Thanks for sharing your experience; we most definitely look forward to you visiting us again!

    5 STAR!!

    The cubes look great! Thank you so much for your help!

    Unique and High Quality

    I'm really happy how our company value blocks turned out. The translation from the logos to the wood engraving is top notch. The turn around time was impressive too.

    Great Product

    The staff all loved these, so did I. It is perfect.


    We had purchased 400 for our staff members, with a design on each side. The blocks could not have been more perfect & they shipped quickly - which I was expecting a delay because the owners were on vacation, but there was no delay at all. Beyond the blocks, I was most impressed by the customer service, absolutely phenomenal.

    Excellent product!!!

    amazing customer service and excellent product!


    Working with you was a pleasure! You did an amazing job! These core values blocks are beautiful, they are well made and they look even better in person. Kathleen, thank you for everything you did, your costumer service is outstanding.

    Core Value Blocks

    These turned out great! Perfect way to remind all of our employees what our core values are...fits perfectly on your desk. Great quality and excellent customer service!!

    Amazing Core Values Block

    These are incredibly versatile in the way that they can be a simple display for core values, goals, focus, etc. With all sides of the block and such a small, but legible footprint, the possibilities are endless. These are fantastic, as was the customer service. I could not be happier with the purchase.
