The Perfect Gift Idea- Employee Appreciation

It’s that time of the year again! The time where we slow down, take a look around us and sit in appreciation at all the people who make our dreams a reality. Looking for a perfect gift idea for these people? You have come to the right place!

Voltaire once said that “appreciation is a wonderful thing: it makes what is excellent in others belong to us as well”.

Here at A Special Request, we believe that the talents and strengths each member of our staff brings to the table are what make us an excellent business.

We know that each person plays an interval role that allows our small business to accomplish big feats that some may even describe as impossible.

We pride ourselves on embracing challenges and striving to go above and beyond expectations with our services.

With this being said we acknowledge that this would not be possible without the communication, support and friendship between all members of the Special Request family.

In honor of Employee Appreciation Day A Special Request would like to say THANK YOU to its wonderful staff!

If you are looking for the perfect gift idea to show your staff members how much you care, you have come to the right place! We specialize in creating beautiful and unique gift baskets that are guaranteed to bring happiness to all those that are on the receiving end. What could be more perfect then a personalized gift basket full of delicious gourmet foods and beverages.

We can arrange to deliver the baskets if you are available in the Park City, Utah area. We also offer quick shipping options depending on your needs. We will work with you and make sure you have the best gift buying experience ever! Give us a call today at (435)-640-3252 or send us an email at aspecialrequest@gmail.com

Let us help you by showing your employees how thankful you are for them this year!

Happy New Year- Sundance Film Festival

Happy New Year from our Special Request family!

We hope you are fulfilling your resolutions and still using your gym memberships…

This is an exciting time in our little mountain town as people from across the globe come to hit the slopes and catch a film. Right now Park City is a creative cluster of music and cinematic artists, producers and agents who have come in to enjoy the Sundance Film Festival! We officially know the madness has begun when there are no parking spaces at Whole Foods and Main Street is buzzing with the fabulously fashionable PIB’s (People In Black).

At Special Request we offer many things to make this time more relaxing and enjoyable. Let us grocery shop for you, no lines and no hassle. Just quick delivery and a smiling face at your door. Or stock up on bottle of wine, champagne, or some HighWest Whiskey and a deluxe spread of snacks with your guests!

Wishing everyone of you A Healthy, Happy, New Year from all of us at A Special Request, we look forward to hearing from you!

Are You Ready for Sundance?

Sundance is only two days away! Are you ready for guests to arrive?

During this year’s Sundance Film Festival be sure to surprise your guests with a gourmet gift basket from A Special Request. Let us perfectly pack a custom basket that will be sure to put a smile on your guests’ face. From artisan chocolate to fluffy, white chocolate popcorn, A Special Request will make sure there’s something for everyone.

Chocolate, Popcorn, and Sundance.

Celebrating “Lovemas” in Park City, Utah

As the elves tie up the last bows and send off the dwindling number of holiday gifts, we are reminded of the “bliss” the season has to offer. Our workshop has consisted of local product flying on and off the shelves, red and green everything, and a spring in our step as we embrace the feeling of Lovemas.

This winter has been the busiest in our history and we are excited to catch a quick breath before the New Year roles around. A breath to see family, eat lots of goodies, and have gratitude for the endless gifts in life.

The holiday season in Park City is a truly magical time of glistening snow capped peaks, freshly powdered runs, and absolutely no parking spots near Main Street. The ski bums are out and about as are the people who make the local coffee shop look like a couture fashion show.

It is such a blessing to live here, work here and be in the business of giving. From all of us at A Special Request, we hope you have great ski runs, warm beverages by the fire, and maybe a basket of gourmet treats to share with loved your ones.
