Which Gift Basket Would You Choose?

July 19, 2012

stationary gift basket writing and teaWelcome back readers!

As always, I loved all of your Thank You Gift suggestions (and even better, some of you put down really great recipes and dessert ideas!). Clearly, whoever is lucky enough to receive a thank you gift from one of you is in for a special treat. And I have a few of my own gifts to send out! Congratulations to Cathy B*****y (July 13, 2012 at 12:01 am), Judy (July 17, 2012 at 9:08 pm), Amanda S (July 18, 2012 at 10:50 am), Shannon J. (July 19, 2012 at 10:16 am), and Pat (July 19, 2012 at 12:50 pm)! You will all be receiving our special All Smiles Gourmet Sweets & Treats Gift Basket! Please send your shipping info to me at amariscal@1800flowers.com and I’ll have your gift baskets sent out to you.

As I’ve said, I love reading through all of your comments (and sometimes even look there for future blog post ideas!). One comment I saw made me think of a really interesting topic that (of course) I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on. When making or receiving a gift, do you prefer an all food gift or do you prefer a gift with reusable objects? spa gift basket lavender

I know this really depends on the occasion, but usually the rule of thumb is to stick with food gifts because you know they can always be used…or well, eaten. But sometimes when I get a gift basket full of my favorite things like new books, magazines, pens, and all corresponding items, I can’t help but love it more. And in a way, I think it says a lot that someone knew which things you would enjoy!

But as I said, you can never go wrong with food. Sure it’s around every day, but there’s something extra delicious about a gourmet treat that someone specifically picked with you in mind. new baby gift basket with monkey

We have tons of gift baskets overflowing with delicious foods ready and on the go, but I definitely think our specialty gift baskets can hold their own!  As far as new baby gift baskets, this adorable monkey gift basket is super sweet and will put a huge smile on mommy’s face.

If you’re looking for a relaxing gift, our spa gift baskets are divine. Check out this Lavender spa gift basket sure to relax and soothe whoever is lucky enough to use it! Or if you’re interested in a more active way to relax, this trendy and ready to go yoga gift set is perfect (and comes with some great essentials for your workout!). yoga gift set

Feeling a bit pensive? Our Thinking of You stationary gift basket is a real treat! Check out a review I wrote on this gift basket here.

So what do you think? In the comments section (1-2 paragraphs) let me know which gift you prefer and why! FIVE lucky and random winners will receive a sweet prize next week.

Have a great weekend!

Sweet Treats for a Sweet Cause

December 15, 2011
Sweet Miss Givings Ultimate Bakery Gift Box $89.99; Product Code:96362

Welcome back gift baskets readers!

( December 8, 2011 at 5:41 pm), Starlet Borzymowski ( December 9, 2011 at 8:02 am), Joy B.

Sweet Miss Givings Ultimate Bakery Gift Box $89.99; Product Code:96362

I’m going to take a little break away from talking about gifts, décor, movies, and the inevitable snow storm that will make my morning commute 10x more hectic. Instead, I want to talk about an extremely cool project that the 1800baskets.com team participated in. We decided to partner up with local Chicago fund, Chicago House & Social Service Agency.

Chicago House has been a leader in housing and supportive services for people living with HIV and AIDS, with programs that expand beyond housing to encompass a variety of services designed to help people living with HIV and AIDS move towards independence and self-sufficiency, including prevention, medication adherence, and employment programs. The Chicago House organization is by far one of the best non-profit programs out there for helping those in need. Their residential and scattered-site housing programs create stable housing, a Family Support Program offers housing, case management and other support services to 18 families, including over 30 dependent children, and works intensively with both parents and children to stabilize their lives and help break the cycle of poverty. They work intensively on education and support for those living with HIV and AIDS; awareness and prevention initiatives, medication adherence programs, community case management and work support programs only scratch the surface of everything this organization has to offer.

A few of us on the team with all of the donations!

1800Baskets.com has even partnered with their employment initiative business, Sweet Miss Giving’s bakery, a for-profit bakery that provides transitional job training in addition to donating 100% of its profits back to Chicago House. You can find their bakery items (here) to order! A sweet treat supporting an even sweeter cause. And from personal tasting, the turtle brownies are the only brownies I ever want to eat for the rest of my life. If I could eat them every day without giving myself early on-set diabetes, I would.

This holiday season, we knew we wanted to help out even more. For the beginning half of the month, we ran a donation drive in our office to collect personal hygiene items, winter gear like coats, gloves, hats, scarves, and games for families to play together. We ended up with way over 1000 items! (And my arms ended up with some muscle definition from carrying…) As a gifting company, our main objective is to make our customers smiles, but this was a whole other level!

For the rest of the season (and really the year), think about ways that you can give back to your community or help those in need! Maybe find “two for one” deals while you’re out grocery or everyday shopping and just set things aside as you go along to make the donation process easy. Sort through your closets or attics for things you just don’t have a need for anymore. Get yourself a delicious treat at Sweet Miss Givings and put those calories to a worthy cause (if it’s for charity, I hear all brownies are 0 calories)!

In the comments section (1-2 paragraphs), tell me what your favorite charities, any charitable moments you recall, or any charitable programs that you always work with. We’ll be giving FIVE random winners a Sweet Miss Givings Bakery gift box!

Happy Holidays!

Comfort and Joy Sweet Treats Gift Basket

Welcome Back Basket Fans!

I loved reading about all of your favorite decorations and I’m sure that everyone’s house will be perfectly festive this month! The decoration process at my house has now spanned to over the week and usually when we’re all finally home and not too tired (also before any good TV shows start), so the one day it typically takes us to decorate the tree is now going on five. I won’t wait that long to announce the winners though! Congratulations to Dorinna (posted December 2, 2011 at 9:08 am), Kathy S. (posted December 8, 2011 at 12:23 pm), Barbara (posted December 1, 2011 at 4:22 pm), Edwina (posted December 8, 2011 at 1:57 pm), and Roger Simmons (posted December 1, 2011 at 10:29 pm)!! Email your information to amariscal@1800flowers.com and we’ll get your Regal Drum Gift Tower to you right away! Back to business! Continue Reading…

Tis the Season!

Regal Drum Christmas Gift Tower Harry London Chocolates

Welcome Back!

Did everyone survive Black Friday and Cyber Monday? I need my readers safe and in tact! I hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving holiday and ate until you couldn’t tell the difference between any of the foods you were eating anymore (that may have just been me). It’s December 1st, so now I can finally talk about the Holidays without a twinge of guilt for infringing on any other holiday’s placement!

Festive Red Holiday Sleigh Gift Basket

Festive Red Holiday Sleigh Gift Basket $59.99; Product Code:96633

I know I say I love every holiday already, but guys, I really love the Christmas and the Holiday season. I love Christmas songs, especially if they’re sung by horribly dressed band boys of the 90s or Mariah Carey. I love Christmas shopping and trying to find the perfect gift. I love Christmas parties with cookies or cake. I love the new Christmas menu at Starbucks. I love having a valid excuse to drink copious amounts of hot cocoa with mini marshmallows. I’ll probably be answering my phone as “Buddy the Elf, what’s your favorite color?” and then watching every Christmas special on TV. I’ll definitely end up watching the full marathon of A Christmas Story on TBS, after I’ve sat through an almost annoying amount of viewings for Home Alone 1 & 2, Charlie Brown, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Muppet’s Christmas Carol, Gremlins, Love Actually, Babes in Toyland (most likely the horrendously hilarious remake with Keanu Reeves), a good classic like It’s A Wonderful Life or Miracle on 34th Street, am I leaving anything else out? (Scrooged was already on this week, so that’s only one movie out of a million left for me…) Oh! And sledding, ice skating, volunteering, and donations! Just finishing my mental check list for this month 

Of course, I have to prioritize, so insane list of Christmas activities will have to wait for a second. This first week is all about Christmas decorations for me. I’ll be getting out the snowman cookie jar, red table mats, my sad little table sized Peanut’s Christmas tree, an unnecessary amount of lights, and of course I’m sure I’ll be finding tinsel on me for the next 3 weeks. Our Holiday gifts section will probably come into play at my house, seeing as our gift baskets are both food and cute holiday decorations all rolled into one (bow tied) package!

Regal Drum Christmas Gift Tower Harry London Chocolates

Regal Drum Gift Tower $39.99; Product Code:94801

I know my mom is going to like the Regal Drum Gift Tower, filled with Harry London® chocolate treats inside. An 1800Baskets.com Exclusive, this charming and festive gift set is perfect for quick decoration with yummy gifts inside, like milk chocolate covered pretzels, mint chocolates, chocolate covered grahams, and more! We also have the beautiful Festive Red Holiday Sleigh Gift Basket, a holiday must-have of chocolates, pretzels, snacks, and sweets all delivered in a solid sleigh basket!

I have a few hours of shopping in Target and Pier 1 ahead of me, so in the comments section (1-2 paragraphs) tell me some of your Holiday decorations or things you’re excited for! You can even quote your favorite holiday movies to me and I’ll be happy! FIVE lucky winners will receive the Regal Drum Gift Tower!

Happy Holidays!

As always, thanks for coming back every week to read and comment! I really do enjoy reading all of your stories and all the things that you’re excited for. Have fun, eat well and enjoy your holiday! I’ve got a weird town tradition and celebration to get ready for that involves eating deep fried pieces of a turkey that is best to just drown in hot sauce…Thanksgiving traditions! Enjoy this Peanuts clip while I’m out 🙂

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

Sweet Treats Mug & Cocoa Gift Basket

Sweet Treats Mug & Cocoa Gift Basket $34.99; Product Code:94880

Now I know I’ve been on and on about not forgetting Thanksgiving (which I haven’t!) and I said I wasn’t even going to think about Christmas until December hits, but I’ve got a blog to write and I’m trying to not think about food too much before Thanksgiving so I can prepare myself for an early turkey-induced coma. So what I’m about to write about might be a big “huh?” But I do want to share some of our really great Holiday gift baskets with you all! (Plus, who could say no to the holidays? Sorry Thanksgiving, you’re cool and all, but I like listening to “All I Want for Christmas Is You” on repeat too many times).

On with the show! First up we have a 1800Baskets.com exclusive Holiday gift, the Sweet Treats Mug & Cocoa Gift Basket. Outside is getting alarmingly too crisp for me and I’ve already picked out a nice comfy pair of slippers to wear while I’m preparing myself a yummy mug of hot cocoa! In the Sweet Treats gift basket you’ll receive two solid, red ceramic mugs perfect for the holiday season, chocolate truffle cocoa, mini marshmallows (the kid in me is screaming with joy!), Fannie May® Dark Chocolate Squares, cookies, and more! Such a cute gift for a Secret Santa, office coworker, family member, friend, or (like I’ll be doing) a nice treat for yourself! Highly recommend this cold day companion since winter is coming (who do I think I am? Game of Thrones? I miss that show…)

Santa's Holiday Delivery Truck Gift Basket

Santa's Holiday Delivery Truck Gift Basket $79.99; Product Code:94842

If you’re in need of a cute holiday gift that could also double as adorable decorations, this next one is the perfect gift (and it comes with a video!) The Santa’s Holiday Delivery Truck Gift Basket is overflowing with tons of great snacks and dessert treats for everyone to enjoy and boasts a super cute container as well. Don’t take my word for it (though you really should by now), watch our video we made for it!

Enjoy your Thanksgiving celebrations and be safe, eat lots of food, have fun with your families and friends! And in the comments section (1-2 paragraphs) let me know what you’re most excited for this Holiday season! I’ll choose FIVE winners on Wednesday November 23 to win our Sweet Treats Mug & Cocoa Gift Basket!

Happy November, Everyone!

Thank you for putting up with Halloween festivities for two weeks in a row (although I’m sure you all truly enjoyed it). Nice to see that I’m not the only one who needs to watch something preferably animated after watching scary movies and then proceeds to question whether my cat is staring in the corner because it’s fun or there’s a ghost! (Okay, maybe that’s still mostly me). Anyway, we’ve got something good to talk about today, so I won’t make you wait any longer!

Matching a person to an appropriate Gift Basket

December 1, 2010
Comfort and Joy Sweet Treats Gift Basket

Comfort and Joy Sweet Treats Gift Basket

So we’ve been hearing quite a few comments regarding this specific gift basket during our various internal and external meetings. Many times it’s something as simple as “that’s a cute little basket” or “i love the christmas colors”. So the reason for this post is to ask you to whom would you give this specific gift basket, who do you feel it’s appropriate for? The other reason we ask is many people have mentioned to us that they liked the fact that it was not too big. They said it made it “giveable” for certain people on their holiday shopping list. We are actually looking right at this gift basket as we type this post. And it really isn’t a huge gift basket by any means, and it is indeed very cute and presents quite well. The gift basket is very re-usable as well within the home. Ha…it looks like we may be biasing your answers now!! Anyways, we’re not quite clear on the exact question for you, but generally we’d like to know what you think about this holiday gift basket.

So in about a paragraph or two (or three if you have the time!), let us know what you think. Only 1 paragragh is required, but if you write us a whole page, we will literally read every word, not kidding. We love your feedback, even when it’s negative. So let’s hear your thoughts. There will be 3 winners!

Winner Status:
