Gourmet Gift Baskets: Back To School Bear Hug Care Package Review

Send a Bear Hug to a Student Away From Home with a Back To School Bear Hug Care Package Review + Giveaway

I remember the first time I moved away from home. I was a couple weeks out of high school and totally naive to the experience that lay ahead of. Those first couple weeks were an adjustment and I began to miss home quickly. I craved anything that reminded me of home, and I made many phone calls during that time.

Remembering that feeling, when I recently received the Back to School Bear Hug Care Package from GourmetGiftBaskets.com I wished I would have had something similar during those hard first weeks.

Gourmet Gift Baskets: From The Heart Gift Tower Review

Gourmet Gift Baskets: From The Heart Gift Tower Review + Giveaway

Each year when the middle of February rolls around, I see more declarations of love from my social media feeds, to late night television. The downside to this is that I am a believer that instead of choosing one date in February to declare our love for loved ones we should show them that love each day of their lives.

In light of this feeling, I think that random acts and loving gifts are wonderful throughout the year. My favorite type of gifts are the ones that are tasty and are also useful in another way such as presented in an attractive tin or boxes. When I saw From The Heart Gift Tower from GourmetGiftBaskets.com I was immediately struck by the attractive boxes and the ability to enjoy the treats and the boxes for months to come.

Gourmet Gift Baskets: Deluxe Junk Food Bucket Review

Gourmet Gift Baskets: Deluxe Junk Food Basket Review + Giveaway

Ever since I began this blog, I have stopped watching movies. There is something about watching something more than an hour, that seems like a huge time commitment on something that I may or may not enjoy.

With my husbands birthday approaching I was thinking of taking a night off and having a junk food and movie marathon with him. I knew that this was the perfect idea and the only thing in question was the snack and junk food that would be included.

Since we are such a junk food house when I saw this collection from GourmetGiftBaskets.com, and saw the Deluxe Junk Food Basket I knew that this would be a good gift for my husband’s birthday and an accompanying movie night.

GourmetGiftBaskets.com: Nostalgic Candy Gift Crate Review

Gourmet Gift Baskets: Nostalgic Candy Gift Crate Review + Giveaway

nostalgic-basketIf there is one way to describe me, nostalgic comes to mind. I love to see things from my youth, and have began a collection of old toys and advertisements.

One thing that always reminds me of my childhood is candy. I remember when I was young, my father would take me to breakfast each weekend, and while he sat and chatted with friends, I would go over to the general store in the same center and purchase a couple of pieces of candy. My choices were usually items that would give me more candy, for less cost.

When I was recently contacted by GourmetGiftBaskets.com, and took a little time to peruse their website, I was immediately struck with gift inspiration – the first thing that caught my eye was the Nostalgic Candy Gift Crate.

The Ginger People: Ginger Rescue & Arjuna Bar Review and Giveaway

Ginger People TrioLet’s be honest, we all live stressful lives and sometimes that stress manifests into stomach issues. Most medicines that are made to help stomach issues are harsh and have less than positive side effects.

Since me and concept of nausea are very familiar I appreciate easy solution that will be as natural as possible. Given that this is a common problem during one of Jason and I’s many discussions he suggested that I try a ginger based solution.

I had done a review for the Ginger People about a year ago, and since they recently released some new products, I was curious to try their new ginger products.

Monthly Mystery Box of Awesome – June 2016 Review

Monthly Mystery Box of Awesome – June 2016 Review

June Mystery Box of AwesomeWhen I was a kid there was a store in the neighboring town that was part thrift store, part supply store and part flea market.  This store had everything from toys to dental tools. My father would take me to this store and I would venture off to find some random item I could up-cycle into a useful something.

As I got older, I saw the genius in a store of this nature and now as a homeowner I find myself missing the store I used to see the passage of time inside. I often wish I could go to this store, walk the isles and pickup a random sampling of items that would be useful for my home.

I am very happy to say that I have discovered that long-lost store in the form of a monthly box. The Monthly Mystery Box of Awesome by That Daily Deal.com is the random equivalent of that long-lost store. Each month no theme is chosen, but rather a selection of random gender neutral items that will undoubtedly meet a need in your life that you never knew was missing.
