Welcome back gift basket readers!
I LOVE all of your suggestions and ideas for St. Patrick’s Day! I’m wondering if I can do a whole day of eating nothing but green eggs and rice krispy treats without getting sick…(we all know I’m going to try anyway!) Of course, we have some gift baskets to get out that you won’t hesitate to eat all day! Congratulations to Bernadette Cirigliano (March 1, 2012 at 5:09 pm), Mrs Judy Nutaitis (March 2, 2012 at 8:41 am), Sangita (March 2, 2012 at 12:03 pm) Lori (March 5, 2012 at 3:06 pm), and Kathy (March 8, 2012 at 2:46 pm)! Send your shipping info to firstname.lastname@example.org and I can send out your Best of Ghirardelli® Gift Baskets!
If there is anything about the all-encompassing, freakily aware internet stalking system known as Facebook that I actually really love, it’s that it keeps track of everyone’s birthdays so that I don’t have to. Not that I don’t make a conscious effort to remember birthdays, but everyone past a select few friends and family members, if I don’t have the date written somewhere in a place I know I’ll see every day, I’ll be sending a lot of belated-birthday grievances. Thankfully for me, I live in the great age of technology where I have the internet to do all my thinking for me (Just kidding! Well, kind of. Let me Google the answer…) In all seriousness, I really like the birthday feature on Facebook and I’m sure it makes everyone feel great to see their page filled with Happy Birthday wishes and birthday messages from friends new and old.
That being said, I also think that this handy tool has made everyone a little bit lazy with their birthday well wishes. I’m not saying that you need to go all out for that one kid you used to have Calculus with 8 years ago, but I’m sure that your closer friends would appreciate something a little more thoughtful than “happy birthday, you” on their wall (I am extremely guilty of this sometimes). Brighten up someone’s birthday and surprise them with a fun, colorful and delicious birthday gift! And don’t forget to add a nice card with it for personalization!
I was sold the minute I saw there was a mini birthday cake in the Great Big Happy Birthday Sweets & Treats Box. Not to mention, the two birthday hate and cupcake decorated cookies look adorable. It also comes with lots of sweets and popcorn balls. This would be a great birthday surprise for someone to find at their desk, on the table when they get home. There are about 12 young kids to think about in my family and I never have any idea what they like from week to week except for sweets and candy, and lots of it. This would be such a cute birthday surprise for your children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins (you get the idea!)
I know you all will never get tired of chocolate gift baskets, so this Happy Birthday Chocolate Indulgence Gift Basket makes the perfect chocolate lover’s birthday gift. Filled with Happy Birthday greetings in the form of Cheryl’s Chocolate Chip Cookies, Fannie May® Cookies & Cream Bark, Fannie May® Bavarian Chocolate Pretzels, Fannie May® Mint Meltaway Cocoa, Harry London® Milk Chocolate Crispy Joys, Harry London® 70% Organic Dark Chocolate The Popcorn Factory® Butter Toffee Popcorn and more, they will definitely appreciate the birthday gift!
Now that we all have decided to ease up on the lazy happy birthday Facebook posts, tell me in the comments section (1-2 paragraphs) a great birthday surprise you’ve had or have done for a friend! FIVE lucky and random winners will receive the Great Big Happy Birthday Sweets & Treats Box!
**Next week Thursday I’ll be on a series of planes, trains, and automobiles (okay, really just one plane and corresponding vehicles) so next week’s blog will be posted on Friday (3/16) and winners announced then!
Have a great weekend, and happy birthday to someone!
