Gifts is one of those catch-all categories that encompass a wide range of merchandise that may or may not be purchased as a gift

As you might expect, the companies on the list below sell a variety of products, from low-end novelties (Oriental Trading Co. and Harriet Carter) to high-ticket jewelry and tabletop items (Tiffany & Co. and Ross-Simons).

Evergreen Enterprises is a new entry to the field: It bought the Plow & Hearth, Problem Solvers, Wind and Weather, HearthSong and Magic Cabin catalogs from 1-800-Flowers.com in late 2009.
