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.

Gourmet Gift Baskets: Chocolate Covered Christmas Pretzels Review

Gourmet Gift Baskets: Chocolate Covered Christmas Pretzels Review + Giveaway

Recently I discovered the art of melting chocolate and the art of covering items in chocolate.

Shortly after I discovered this I attempted to make my own dark chocolate covered pretzels. To say it was difficult to make would be an understatement. The concept of putting sprinkles on the chocolate was way beyond my scope of abilities at the time. It was then I decided that i would purchase these in the future and not attempt to make these again.

When I was contacted recently from GourmetGiftBaskets.com, and saw their Christmas Pretzels I knew that I had to give these a try since they looked so much better than my feeble attempt.

Crafted Gluten Free: Ultimate Cookie Box Review

Crafted Gluten Free – Ultimate Cookie Box Review and Giveaway

Crafted Cookie BoxWhen I was a young child I was called the “Cookie Monster” due to my love of cookies.

As I got older I moved on from store-bought cookies and began to make my own cookies. I would have slumber parties with my best friends and I would make cookies. I was recently gifted my teenage era cookbook, and each chapter is pristine and perfect – well not the cookie chapter. Even 20 years later there are dollops of butter grease and remnants of dried flour on those pages.

Now that I am even older, I find it easier to purchase pre-made cookies due to time constraints and adult responsibilities. I have difficulty finding a cookie as good as I can make. Since I have this insatiable urge for cookies it seemed only natural to review Crafted Gluten Free’s Ultimate Cookie Box.

This was not the first Crafted Gluten Free review I have done, as I have reviewed the first monthly box, but it was one of the sweetest.
