Grandparent's Day September 7, 2014


If you have been reading the blog or following me on Facebook then you know I will become a Mamaw in January and I am tickled pink and blue.  My beautiful daughter is having a gender reveal party soon so when the cake is cut we will know what the most loved baby will be.  {gentle smile}

I didn't think I'd become a grandmother this early in life, I am 40, but it has been a tremendous blessing and I cannot wait for this baby to get here so I can hold it while it sleeps, watch it explore the world and watch it smile.  Most of all give it so much love!!!

So, I heard through GourmetGiftBaskets that they have a lovely assortment of baskets to order for those special grandparents in your life.  {They sent me an email about Grandparent's Day and their amazing baskets.}  I plan on spending it with my grandchild exploring the world, of course, when the baby gets here.

Grandparents are pretty special people. They give unconditionally, never forget a birthday, and usually have good supply of pretty decent candy. All that TLC they’ve been giving you over the years certainly deserves to be returned – and we’ve got just the gifts to help you do it.

On September 7, 2014 we need to celebrate these pretty awesome people.  {Grandparents' Day has been around for more that 35 years!!!!}

Thankfully the great people at Gourmet Gift Baskets have a great assortment of baskets for any occasion. 

GourmetGiftBaskets.com was founded with family values and the desire to provide exceptional gifts for all of life’s special occasions. Through years of working in his family’s flower shop in New Hampshire, President & CEO Ryan Abood naturally realized an opportunity to provide handmade, high quality gift baskets. What began with two family members in the basement of a flower shop has exploded into a multi-million dollar company recognized multiple times by Inc.500, Internet Retailer, Enterprise Bank, and more, while still remaining true to its core values of exceptional gourmet ingredients handcrafted with care. As this entrepreneurial family spirit continues in the next generation with the birth of the youngest Abood last spring, this proud family business will continue to exceed gourmet gifting expectations.

There are also larger versions of this baked goods basket, too.
