GourmetGiftBaskets.com Review & Giveaway - CLOSED

Mother’s Day is just around the corner and being that it’s so close, I’d say it’s time for shopping! My mom is one of my best friends – she’s amazing! So, while getting her something for Mother’s Day, I want it to be something that is of her worth, which is pretty high up on a pedestal, if you ask me. :)
Needless to say, my mom is pretty low maintenance. She doesn’t want jewelry or a pretty spring time dress – that’s just not much of her style. But my mom loves chocolate – anything chocolate. While looking online, I came across the perfect gift basket for my mom from GourmetGiftBaskets.com. So I got this basket for my mom as an Early Mother’s Day present and she’s been reviewing it (and sharing some of the yummy goodies) with me.

A Bit about the Company: For a small company, GourmetGiftBaskets.com likes pulling off big projects that make it easier for customers to assemble an assortment of foods and flowers for a holiday or special occasion.
In 2008, GourmetGiftBaskets.com (No. 446) was the fastest-growing web-only merchant in Internet Retailer’s latest annual ranking of the 500 largest online retailers. GourmetGiftBaskets.com grew web sales last year by 172% to $12 million from $4.4 million in 2007. Despite the recession, GourmetGiftBaskets.com grew because the company developed web site features and functions that enhanced content, provided greater product detail and expedited checkout, says founder and president Ryan Abood.

The gift basket that I (ha, my mom) received is the Mother’s Day Sweets & Treats Basket. My mom adores it. She was so excited to, not only get something in a package FOR HER) but to receive something with so many goodies. Here’s a list of what she got in her basket:
• Bountiful Harvest Granola by GourmetGiftBaskets.com
• Key Lime White Chocolate Chip Cookies by Brent & Sams
• Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Melt-a-Ways by Chocolates on Broadway
• Cranberry Orange Tango by Nutorious
• Metropolitan Trail Mix by GourmetGiftBaskets.com
• Chocolate Nut Medley by Marich

Be sure to check out all of their exciting gift baskets. They have so many different gift baskets for all sorts of occasions.

My mom is a doll, plain and simple. She’s easy to please and loves anything from anyone. But this, I think, was one of the best gifts to give to my mom. I took one picture of her with her Mother’s Day present from GourmetGiftBaskets.com and didn’t get the chance to take any separate pictures of the items; my mom dug into the basket head first.
WHAT YOU WIN:1 winner will receive a Mother's Day Sweets & Treats Gift Basket!
