Historic Hotel Bethlehem In Bloom with Item On “Oprah’s Favorite Things” List

BETHLEHEM, PA - November 25, 2013 - Each holiday season Oprah Winfrey makes a list and checks it twice, just like another famous person we know. Many shoppers anxiously await the announcement of "Oprah's Favorite Things" and scramble to buy items on the list for their friends and family. One of those favorite things can be found right here in the Lehigh Valley at Historic Hotel Bethlehem.

The hotel's gift shop is the only place to purchase a BloemBox in the Lehigh Valley. ("Bloem' is the Dutch word for "flower.") The colorful keepsake boxes are wrapped with a satin ribbon, adorned with silk flowers and include a ceramic container, a Holland Amaryllis bulb and all of the plant materials that needed to grow the amaryllis. The Amaryllis Gervase Bulb Kit made Oprah's list as number 17 out of 60 items - Other BloemBox options include an amaryllis, poppies, paper whites, habitat gardens and specialty gardens.

BloemBoxes can be purchased in the Shoppe at Hotel Bethlehem on the lower level from 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. every day. The Shoppe at Hotel Bethlehem offers much more than the usual candy and newspapers offered in most hotel gift shops, and is filled with more unique treasures like the Bloem Box year round.

The Historic Hotel Bethlehem is located in Bethlehem, Pa.  It is in the heart of Bethlehem's nationally registered historic district. The Hotel is a proud member of Historic Hotels of America.  Experience world-class service, charming guest accommodations and award-winning cuisine, all on a site that has been warmly welcoming guests since 1741.
