We love giving gifts, no doubt on that. But there are these moments that making a decision on a gift can give you a very hard time. She might not like bright colors or he might not like color red. He already has this action figure and she had enough of the blonde dolls. She is too old for a lipstick and he is too old to care about protecting his iPhone. Omg! I’m already exhausted just on the thought of it. And after a lot of failed attempts to find that perfect gift, I’ve come up with a “place” that honestly, changed my gift-giving life! And the name of it: 1800Baskets.com. Who would resist a basket filled with choco treats, his/her favorite wine or deli products, top quality beverages or – if you are more into no-edible gifts – a basket with beautiful spa products? No one! And which gift giver would be able to resist to a Couponology exclusive 15% off sitewide 1800Baskets promo code? Same here! But since the choices are, honestly, endless let me give a helping hand.

For Her

No matter what’s the age, the style, the attitude, the status or the taste, women are much easier to please with a gift. I think it is part of our nature to fall in love with…gifts! But at the same time, we are way more choosy than men on the items we like, especially if it us that have the last word. So don’t you ever try to please a woman if you are not 100% sure that you know her taste. The only way you will succeed is to get her an elegant spa gift basket and if she doesn’t like it, then there is something wrong going on. Spa means adornment and adornment means woman. So, on the search of the best gift for her you can absolutely stop at the Warm Vanilla Relaxation Spa Basket that includes spa-quality products that will make her day! And apart from the gorgeous body lotion, scrub, shower gel and much more things that will make her spend 2 hours in the bath – instead of her usual 1 hour – don’t forget that we pay attention to the packaging as well, so I bet this basket will stay in her bathroom forever!

for himFor Him

Now, when it comes to men, I usually think of something that has to do with technology or with alcohol and men’s nights. I don’t know if it’s my hubby’s fault that I perceive it that way but I do. And at the end of the day, I know anyway that from my brother to my grandpa, none of them would say no to a good wine- or anything alcoholic together with some gourmet snacks. So, when I’m busy enough to browse for the best gift for a male friend, colleague or family member I instantly think of a wine basket. My latest purchase? The Thoughts of Spring Wine & Gourmet Gift Basket that includes a divine selection of gourmet snacks and two wines from Australia. Are you still wondering if he will love it? Of course he will, he will have to choose from cookies, cheese straws, crisps and more! And I’m sure his girlfriend, daughter, sister will be as happy as he will, because this one comes with a beautiful basket too.

For Babiesfor babies

It was just one month ago, that one of my best friends had her first baby boy! And since she was the first one among my girlfriends that had a baby, I couldn’t stay to a bouquet, or a piece of clothing, I wanted something special, huge that would stand out in her room. And I found exactly what I was looking for. The Deluxe Baby-Cakes Boy Essentials, which except for being really spectacular, it included all she needs for her baby prince – diapers, towel, bib and more newborn essentials. Just so you know, she is just lovin’ it!

That was just a tiny sample of what you can get from 1800Baskets.com. Just get online and I promise you’ll find countless gift ideas for your loved ones. But two more things before you go.

  1. Gifts can make someone’s day so you don’t have to wait for a birthday party, Easter, a graduation or a special occasion to offer them.
  2. Even something bought from one to one’s self is considered a gift, so go for it!

Cookies! I can only think of good things when I hear that word! And I just can’t resist when I have them in front of me! Lucky me that I don’t have to speak since I’m typing–I’m chewing one at this very  moment! Told you I can’t resist… This small delicious treat can make my day, and I bet it can make yours too. After all, it’s not a coincidence that we even use the word “cookie” to show our affection to someone. At least, the people I know use it! You see, cookies are everywhere, in your kitchen, in the office, on the coffee table or even in your bag-for those moments you need some sugar to function well. It looks like the universe is conspiring to make us addicted to cookies. Kudos to the universe then, because it made it and we all love cookies more than we do food! But for me, if you are willing to surrender to the sin of extra calories, you have to enjoy it to the maximum! And for that reason, I always choose Mrs. Fields cookies-either for mine or my friends’ pleasure!

Mrs. Fields has a great selection of divine fresh baked cookies and the most gorgeous gift baskets for any occasion, or for no occasion at all! You don’t always need a reason to enjoy or to offer a box full of delicious cookies. Especially when you know you can save big at the same time thanks to the Couponology exclusive 10% off Mrs. Fields promo code. And let me give you some delish gift ideas whether the recipient is a friend, a family member or yourself! First off, you should definitely try the Dozens Of Delights basket in which you can put just nibblers or nibblers and brownies. So if you want to do it right, you should get the one with the 144 nibblers and the 72 brownie bites. A beautiful basket filled with a combination of the most popular cookie flavors that can serve many people (from 2 to 102 years old) and can be the perfect snack for a meeting, a party or even for your coffee table at home! The weekend is coming and I’m sure you’ll have a lot of guests passing by! So you’d better treat them well!

Then, if you like collecting tins from cookies and decorating them on your kitchen shelves than you should definitely get something even more special than just a cookie tin; the Personalized Cookie Tin on which you can have the photo and the message you want. You can get such a tin and choose among three options depending on the amount of nibblers you want. Also, you can now get this great gift and save with the 15% off Mrs. Fields promo code. So don’t even think about it! You don’t need a reason to get it! Savings and taste with one move! And finally, if you want to make a birthday gift that goes beyond the usual tasteless and boring candies and cakes, you should get the joyful Birthday Balloons Tin with a delicious assortment of cookies for any taste! Or if you are looking for something even cuter than that, you should buy the Birthday Wish Cupcake with 36 nibblers bite- sized cookies in various flavors. A gorgeous box whose color combinations make it suitable for any age and any gender. Now, you can shop for any birthday gift and save with the Mrs. Fields 15% off promo code.

To sum up, whether they end up being yours or a gift, you won’t avoid being seduced by not only the taste but also the appearance of the adorable Mrs. Fields cookies. So, relax and enjoy! And keep them away from me because I’m quick!
