Sorry! The Cyber-dog ate my blog work!

July 27, 2011

Welcome back, Baskets Readers!

News about the other week and a new winner to announce! Sorry for the lack of posting last week. Sometimes people go on “vacations” that entail helping out their parents for a week to retain their spot as the favorite child, as well as realizing while they’re gone that their Macbook isn’t compatible with any of the work servers! Yippee!

Starbucks® Blends Gourmet Coffee Gift Basket $39.99, item code: 94331

To our winners from the last post, turns out we sold out of the popular Tazo Tea Gift Set during the contest. I never want to leave you guys in the dust, so to make it up to you I will be sending you a much better deal in the form of the Starbucks® Blends Gourmet Coffee Gift Basket ($39.99). Don’t fret, it contains your favorite teas from the last gift, but it also adds a bonus of having a larger, fashionably sturdy, green gift basket, selections of delicious Tazo tea and several samples of Starbucks coffee! Your gift baskets have already been shipped out and should arrive on the 28th. Sorry for all the delays, I really do hope you enjoy your new baskets!

Please send your full name and address to amariscal@1800flowers.com and we can get your prize out to you! Everyone had such delicious and creative ideas for our fruit gift baskets; I can’t wait to try some of them out!

While we’re on the subject of enjoying gift baskets, our crafty winner Lori from the “Hostess with the Mostest” posting has graciously sent in a picture for us of her with her gift basket! Thank you, Lori! I would like to encourage all winners to submit pictures of you with your gift baskets and let us know what you think.

As always, thank you to everyone for reading and participating every week. And don’t forget to catch our new blog posting this Thursday, I promise it will be a fun one!

Gift Basket winner, Lori!
