Block Set

We did a custom block set and found the staff responsive and easy to work with. All of our block sets turned out nicely and the recipients loved the unique gift! Will be ordering again.

Fantastic finished product

We ordered wooden blocks with our company's core values on them as a visual reminder to our team. They turned out great! Our staff loves them and happily display them on their desks!

The Value Blocks were a Hit!

They arrived and look awesome. We actually had an all company meeting the day they arrived so were so excited to have them in hand to give to employees. It all worked out awesomely!!

Thank you so much!!

Perfect Timing

We have been focusing on company core values for about the past 2 years and I recently ran across the core values block when I was looking for SWAG to give to employees for our company employee appreciation day. The quality of the blocks exceeded my expectations and the owners of the company said we hit it out of the ballpark with this!! Job well done!!

The Core Value blocks turned out great, our team loves them. The ordering process was simple and the blocks were delivered when promised.

The Perfect Gift

I spent countless hours searching for a gift for my board members at the end of their term. Often, we give acrylic or glass "awards" or some other very expensive piece of plastic. Smiling Tree was the perfect solution. Reasonably prices, CUSTOM gifts. I received them when promised and they turned out more beautiful than I could have expected. Kathleen was super helpful when I initially called and was a tremendous help to my designer to get everything just right. While all that is true and wonderful, what sealed the deal was that they are sustainable gifts and the company PLANTS TREES when you buy their products. A win for me, a win for my board members and a win for the planet. Thank you, Smiling Tree for the perfect gift.

Company Vision Blocks

They were incredible from first outreach, timing, quality, and follow-up support! We'll recommend it to others and hopefully create more products together in the future!

Great Quality

Ummm – we LOVE these blocks! We ordered 120 for our staff members, and they are the perfect size to display on a desk. The weight and quality of them exceeded our expectations. Great service too. Thank you so much!!!! Highly recommend.

They were a hit with our staff! We so appreciated their willingness to work with our tight timeline. They arrived on time and were exactly what we expected.

Great Customer Service

I was very pleased with the depth of personal customer service that I received from Smiling Tree. The emails were not "scripted," rather constructed and customized to my order. They worked diligently with me to help bring our vision to life! We were extremely happy with the service and the product!

Excellent Quality

Not only is the product quality high standard, their customer service is as well. They worked with us to fulfill two large orders and met the "in hand" deadline both times. Highly recommend!

Custom Coaster Puzzle

This is a beautiful product! We did a custom version of this for a recent event and they turned out really beautiful. Thank you to Justin and Kathleen for helping us out with this request.

Company gift

We ordered the core value blocks as a gift for our employees on the annual company retreat. Our companies Q1 theme was focused on our core values and these cubes were the perfect gift! The cubes turned out AMAZING! The Smiling Tree Gifts team made it happen on a tight schedule, communicated professionally and in a timely manner, and were awesome to work with on this project.

Core Values Cubes

I was so excited when I found these cubes as we were looking for a fun way to recognize our quarterly Core Value Award winners. From the time I reached out before ordering through receiving the order the customer support was fantastic! They turned so out so beautiful! Great company to work with and a high-quality product!

Beautiful workmanship and high quality!

My team was so pleased with the quality of our Core Value blocks. The Smiling Tree Gifts team was extremely easy to work with and kept me informed of every step of the process. Now everyone in my office wants Core Value blocks of their own. Thank you for a fantastic product!

MidSouth BUIILD Initiative

We have been searching for something unique for our new BUILD Initiative to help empower our employees to grow in their career and your products definitely stood out in our search. They are the perfect size to display on desks and our specific designs came out exactly how we wanted. We also LOVE the fact that you plant trees for every product purchased. Special thanks to Penny who was so easy to work with and quick to respond to my inquiries!

Beautifully Executed

The entire experience was seamless and enjoyable. The product was executed beautifully. I would 200% recommend these blocks and Smiling Tree Gifts.

We were more than happy with our large order

We are a law firm located in Minneapolis that wanted to do something unique for employee appreciation. We chose Smiling Tree because they are a local company, and our employees could not be happier with the custom blocks that they received. I am especially happy with the customer service and continued responsiveness that I received from Kathleen and the rest of the Smiling Tree team. We had a large order but it was handled with as much care, professionalism, and ease and a smaller order would have been. Thank you!

Customized Wood Blocks

Customized Logo Blocks

We give a custom block to each employee when they join our team and then one each year on their work anniversary. Everyone loves them and looks forward to another block each year (and they let me know if I forget)! Thank you for these beautiful gifts!


Kathleen was so patient and amazing to work with on this project. It was such a unique and different "thank you" gift for our guests coming to our facility. Everyone has been raving about them! Thank you SO much! We love them!


Working with Smiling Tree was such a pleasure from start to finish. They helped us with samples and working through our artwork set up and delivered an amazing finished product. These custom blocks will be a great reminder for our people as we launch a new mission and vision for our church. Many thanks Smiling Tree!

These blocks are the best

I have ordered a single memorial block before, but this time I ordered 40 for a stillbirth remembrance service. They turned out beautiful, and Penny and Smiling Tree Gifts were quick to respond, wonderful to work with and made a fantastic product that they helped me design. This company is the best. I promise that you will be happy with your blocks!

VERY thorough, fast, and communicative!

Our company came up with new values in late 2022 and I wanted some way to enshrine them on something that could sit on the desks of each member of my team. Smiling Tree had a mock-up done for me in less than 24 hours and I had the shipment in under 10 days which was record time for something like this. The quality of the product far exceeded my expectations. I would absolutely recommend this company and fully intend to continue doing business with them in the months and years to come!
