Earth Day 2012

We are excited to celebrate the 42nd anniversary of Earth Day! To commemorate the day, we are offering 30% off from April 22 - 30th, 2012.  This discount applies to all of our products including our new gift tags that you plant. Just enter EARTH at checkout.


At Gift 'n Grow we don't merely celebrate our Planet one day a year... we celebrate it all year long! Gift 'n Grow uses 100% recycled Kraft paper (95% post-consumer and 5% post-industrial) for our gift bags. Our boxes, marketing material and packaging are all made from 100% recycled or sustainable material. Doing this not only save trees but it helps conserve other resources, such as, oil and electricity and helps the overflow of landfills. Our products are also biodegradable and can be easily composted. Also, our new 100% recycled gift tags have wild flower seeds embedded in them. After they have served their purpose, you can't plant them indoors or outside. Also attached to the tag is an ID code. You can peel off the code and adhere it to one of your own gift bags and encourage others to pass it on.


Another way Gift 'n Grow helps the Earth is by donating a percentage of profits to plant trees.  We give to an agency in Wisconsin and American Forests.  They will plant a tree for every dollar donated! We can make a difference.

Introducing Gift 'n Grow Tags


Gardening and recycling are both ways to show that you believe in a better tomorrow. At Gift ‘n Grow we couldn’t agree more! We recently combined these two ideas and came up with a gift tag that recycles itself as wildflowers! We are so excited to bring you our latest product! The tags have wildflower seeds embedded in them and after they have served their purpose, you can plant them and watch them bloom. It is the gift that keeps on giving. As an added bonus, each tag has a removable Gift ‘n Grow I.D. code that you can adhere inside one of your own gift bags and log it in on  our website…www.giftngrow.com. You can then encourage the recipient to continue to pass it on and you will be able to track its journey! This makes it more acceptable to reuse those gift bags piling up in your closet (and we think a little more fun too)!
We continue to be dedicated to helping enrich the environment. All of our packaging products are made in U.S.A. from 100% recycled or sustainable material. We also continue to donate a percentage of our net profits to help plant more trees. By using Gift 'n Grow products, together we can help make the Earth a little greener!

Making a Difference

As we say good bye to another year, we’d like to take time to reflect on our highlights of 2011.
Gift ‘n Grow came out with several new bag designs. We’ve also added a variety of gift boxes to our collection. As we continue to grow, it is important to us that we keep the integrity of using 100% recycled products that are made right here in the USA!
 We would also like to thank family and friends for their support as well as those who have purchased our products. Knowing we are making a difference one bag/box at time, continues to excite us!
Finally, we would like to recognize the retailers who are making it possible for their clients to purchase with a purpose. You have contributed to the success of Gift ‘n Grow and the well being of our environment. Thank you!
