Mother's Day has come and gone and now Father's Day is right around the corner. If your husband and father are as hard to buy for as mine are, then I'm here to lend a helping hand. There's a reason that the old adage, "The Way to a Man's Heart is Through His Stomach" is indeed an old adage...because MEN LOVE FOOD!
The folks at GourmetGiftBaskets.com were nice enough to send over a Mother's Day Sweets & Treats Basket for me to review. The result? A basket that was absolutely DEVOURED by my husband and me in all of two days! Read on for more details about the basket I received and some great Father's Day gift giving suggestions!
PRICE: The Mother's Day Sweets & Treats Basket retails for $49.99 and includes all that you see here:
First, let me say that I've never been the biggest fan of the gift basket. Every time that I've either received one or eaten any of the wares from someone else's gift basket, I've never been impressed by the food. In my experiences, the food is either too exotic, stale or old tasting, just plain nasty, or a combination of these. I wasn't really expecting much better when reviewing the Mother's Day Sweets & Treats Basket from GourmetGiftBaskets.com, but I am happy to report that I was very surprised at what I got!
When I opened the box, I was pleased at the overall presentation of the basket. All of the food was arranged nicely and the contents and arrangement hadn't changed during the shipping process either. There was a bright, colorful bow adorning the basket and it even contained a pink rose inside. I really liked the dark wooden basket, for it had a rich brown color that matched most of my home decor, and I could think of a million places that I could use a basket this size.
Next, came time to see what was inside. There was a ton of yummy things here! What I really liked was that the food was different and unique without being WEIRD! I'm not very adventurous when it comes to my food choices and so I liked that this basket contained items that even I wouldn't mind trying, such as the Key Lime White Chocolate Chip Cookies! This is something that I would never buy for myself, but boy were they GOOD!
My husband has never met much food that he didn't like and he kept going on and on about how great tasting everything was! Personally, my favorite was the Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Melt-a-Ways. I sat down with the intention of only eating a few, and before I knew it, THE ENTIRE BAG WAS GONE! Oops! The fact is, that my husband and I managed to eat everything included in this gift basket in a matter of two days! I have never enjoyed a gift basket as much and this experience has completely changed my views on both giving and receiving gift baskets.
This is why I am wholeheartedly recommending GourmetGiftBaskets.com for all of your Father's Day needs! Whether your husband or father is a picky eater or a risk-taker, the folks at GourmetGiftBaskets.com will have something that will surely please! Here are a few suggestions that I thought looked especially yummy:
