Happy Grandparents Day and Back to School with GourmetGiftBaskets.com + Giveaway!


I always get excited around this time of the year. The dog days of summer are leaving us soon, I hope. Fall is coming. That means Back to School, autumn leaves, Halloween and other holidays. One of those little known holidays is Grandparents' Day on Sept. 13th. Grandparents Day has been around since the 1970's but not too many celebrate it.

It seems to me that this is a great time to tell your grandparents how much they mean to you. My grandmother was very special to me. And I made sure that I would tell her that when she was alive. She was like my second mother and I miss her. I love the idea of Grandparents Day because it allows you to give them the love they deserve.

I hope your grandparents are just as special to. It seems more and more grandparents are playing bigger roles in the family than ever so they deserve a special day!

One way to make sure you can make Grandparents' Day special is by giving them a wonderful gift basket from GourmetGiftBaskets.com. GourmetGiftBaskets.com has a wide range of choices for any special person. Maybe your grandmother loves flowers. You can find a bouquet to brighten her day. Do your grandparents like chocolate? Maybe they want something a little healthier. You can find fruit baskets at GourmetGiftBaskets.com. You can find the perfect gift for anyone.

One of my favorite baskets is the New England Breakfast gift Basket! this basket is filled with several wonderful ingredients that will make any breakfast delicious and hearty. Inside a gorgeous basket, your recipient will discover delicious foods, like Maine's juiciest blueberries, New Hampshire's sweetest maple syrup, and Broadbent's hickory-smoked pepper bacon. I t also features Stonewall Kitchen products that are simply tasty. And with some assorted coffees and pure maple syrup, your loved ones will love this.




I know I loved it. It makes the perfect Sunday morning meal!

And don;t forget that it's Back to School Bear Hug Basket time as well. Hubby's new semester starts next week already! If your child is starting school or heading to college, give them a little gift. The Back to School Bear Hug care package features a soft and cuddly teddy bear perfect for snuggling. It also features favorite classic candies and some gourmet popcorn flavors to create a care package that will brighten any one's day! I love that the basket features Laffy Taffy, Tootsie Rolls, Jawbreakers, Smarties and so many other delicious snacks.




I love GourmetGiftBaskets.com. When I need a gift I head over because I know I will find the perfect gift for anyone on my list. I also know that I can count on them delivering it to my loved ones. I never worry because I know that they will receive a great gift!
