From The Heart Gift Tower

Don't let Valentine's Day turn out like Christmas, where you were running around last minute trying to find the perfect gift to give that someone special in your life.  Make your life so much easier by heading on over to GourmetGiftBaskets.com now and and browsing their wonderful selection of gift baskets and gourmet treats, sure to be a hit with family and friends.  I don't know about you, but in addition to shopping for my husband for Valentine's Day, I am pick up stuff to give my girls, as well as send my parents a little something to tell them I am thinking about them (without their love and support I wouldn't be here -- so any time I can say "Thank You" and send a small...tasty...gift, I jump at the opportunity).  I have also sent small gifts to a few of my close girlfriends who are either divorced or never married, so that they too can experience a little Valentine's Day love and know there are people out there that care about them, especially all the single parents who are playing both mom and dad rolls.

With all that being said, my go-to shopping site has been GourmetGiftBaskets.com as I love the quality of each of their products, and the assortment around the holidays (and year-round) is exceptional. If you were to ask me to go shopping and put together a gift basket for someone, I would have to tell you I would be passing.  I love to shop and buy the perfect gifts for people based on their personalities and likes, but when it comes to trying to put together things like gift baskets or even flower arrangements, I will leave that to the professionals.  :-)  And, the folks at GourmetGiftBaskets.com always come up with great gift basket ideas, all filled with delectable treats that will satisfy everyone's sweet tooth. They even have chocolate covered strawberries and Oreos...two of my weaknesses. :-)

Recently, the folks at GourmetGiftBaskets.com sent me one of their Valentine's Day themed gift baskets to sample with my family, and I couldn't stop smiling when I took it out the package and started to look at the goodies included. If you read my blog, then you know that I am a huge chocolate lover -- and Valentine's Day is the best holiday for chocolate lovers, as many gifts are chocolate based. :-)  I was sent their popular Chocolate Dreams – Valentine’s Day Gift Basket, which is available right now for only $74.99, and includes FREE SHIPPING (need it sooner?  For only $10 you can expedite shipping.)

Just look at this stunning gift basket.  It was almost too beautiful to take apart...but the Belgian truffles and chocolate dipped peanuts were calling my name, so I had to open it. :-)

Items Included in the Chocolate Dreams Gift Basket (shown above):

  • Dark Chocolate & Caramel Smothered Grahams by Annalie’s Chocolates – .65 oz. - Crispy graham crackers topped with gooey caramel and then covered with a thick layer of dark chocolate.
  • Belgian Chocolates by Annalie's Chocolates - 1.76 oz. - Rich chocolate truffles that are filled with creamy flavorful centers.
  • Double Dipped Peanuts by Old Dominion - 3 oz. - All natural Virginia peanuts dipped in two layers of decadent chocolate.
  • White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies by Kimball Lake Bakery – 4 oz. - Completely irresistible white chocolate chip cookies with the sweet taste of delicious cranberries.
  • Chocolate Wafer Rolls by Fusion Gourmet - .9 oz. - Delicately rolled wafer cookies with a rich and creamy chocolate center. 
  • Milk Chocolate Sea Salt Caramels by Sanders – .5 oz. – Sweet, chewy caramel is dipped in a bath of milk chocolate and then lightly dusted with gourmet sea salt.
  • Dark Chocolate Caramel Bar by Ghirardelli - 3.5 oz. – Creamy caramel encased in rich dark chocolate.
  • Chocolate Chip Cookies by Kimball Lake Bakery - 4 oz. - Delicious tiny cookies packed with sweet chocolate chips.

  • S'mores Brittle Crisp by Hammond's Candies - 5 oz. - All the flavors of a s'more like you always remember, packed into crispy brittle pieces.

Look at all you get in this Chocolate Dreams gift basket. From milk chocolate sea salt caramels and chocolate caramel grahams to white chocolate cranberry gourmet cookies and everyone's favorite chocolate chip cookies, you are bound to found something in this basket you want to just sink your teeth into.  It was so hard for me to resist all the delicious chocolate treats in the baskets, as I could have spent an entire evening sampling each and every item that overfilled this basket.  But, I held back...well, my husband knew what I was capable off and saw my eyes glazing over and mouth watering every time I walked by the basket of goodies on the counter in the kitchen, and he had to put his foot down.  :-)  Just kidding.  He, along with my girls had a fun sampling party and enjoyed each and chocolatey treat. I was surprised that we even had some snacks left over -- but, they were gone by the next day, as my husband took a few chocolate snacks and treats to work, and the girls finished off the mini chocolate chip cookies with a cold glass of milk. I had hid the rest of the Chocolate Wafer Rolls by Fusion Gourmet so that I could dip them in my tea in the AM.  

Seeing how much my family enjoyed the Chocolate Dreams gift basket, I went ahead and ordered one for my parents.  They will be able to resist devouring the entire basket in a day, and I can see my Mom now rationing off the cookies and biscuits so that they last a few days. :-)  However they plan to enjoy this chocolate lover's gift basket that will arrive a few days before Valentine's Day, I know they will be all smiles when they take the gift basket out of the box, and then again as they sample the assortment of chocolate treats.

So, with only a couple weeks until Valentine's Day, why not make your life easier and head on over to GourmetGiftBaskets.com and order your Sweetie and anyone else on your shopping list a gift basket, fruit/nut tray, popcorn tins, or chocolate dipped strawberries and even cake pops, and show them just how much you love them and are thinking about them.  And, don't forget to pick a little something up for yourself...you deserve it! :-)
