Sweet Gift Baskets for Bridesmaids!

comments 0

Having been a bridesmaid many times in my life, I know firsthand that there is a lot of work and stress going on behind the scenes. Naturally, things are much more hectic for the couple tying the knot, but groomsmen and bridesmaids have their fair share of things to do and keep in mind, too! Add to that their excitement that two of their favorite people are about to be married, and you have the perfect recipe for what I refer to as a ‘snack scenario.’

What exactly is a snack scenario? Simply put, it’s the perfect storm of a situation in which the likely result is greater-than-average snack consumption. It could be a television marathon of your favorite show; it could be that the kiddos haven’t stopped saying your name since they woke up. It could be spending a week on vacation with a best friend; it could be a lot of things!

We all know that we aren’t supposed to eat cookies when we’re stressed or make food the center of every celebration, but knowing it doesn’t necessarily stop us. When things in life get a little too hectic for words, sometimes the only ‘person’ who knows the right thing to say is a candy bar! And sometimes when everything is going right and you’re as happy as can be, you can’t help but treat yourself to an ice cream sundae or large slice of cake.

Stress and celebration are tied to food for many of us, and as long as you don’t overindulge too much everything is usually OK. However, when there’s a formal occasion on the horizon for which you must fit into a gown tailored just for you, there simply isn’t room to go overboard on Oreos! And that is precisely why our bridesmaid gift baskets brimming with delicious delights are such a thoughtful, fun selection. Chances are good that every one of your bridesmaids has had to just say ‘no’ to more than one cupcake in recent weeks and months to be 100% sure her dress fit perfectly on your special day. And while you’ll be waking up the morning after your wedding with your honeymoon on your mind, your bridesmaids will be digging into their flower-shaped cookie bouquet for breakfast! 🙂

Sweet Summer Spa Gift Baskets for Women!

Summer is in full swing, with ‘flip flop weather’ officially carrying into the evening almost every day of the week. Most of us are spending as much time as possible in front of a fan, basking in air conditioning, or appreciating some relaxing, rejuvenating time poolside or lounging on a beach (the lucky ones!) Most of us are also spending less time shopping than we do any other time of year. After all, who wants to climb inside a hot car and take a trek to the mall when the temps are holding steady in the 90s and there’s iced tea begging to be sipped by the water? Not me! And chances are good that it’s not you, either.

So what’s a guy or gal to do when they need an awesome present but don’t want to wander from store to store in the stifling heat, or waste an afternoon that could be enjoyed catching some sun on the deck? Send along one of the awesome summer gift baskets from Bisket Baskets, of course! Let’s look at two seasonal spa selections she’s sure to love…

Watermelon Themed Gift Basket: The ‘summeriest’ of all summer fruits, you’d be hard pressed to find someone who can resist a sweet slice of watermelon. And not only does this fruit taste amazing, but it smells oh-so-fresh as well. Our ‘Sweet Scent of Watermelon’ gift set is as adorable as it is useful, packed with a colorful watermelon dishtowel and watermelon hand soap and lotion, which are tucked inside a chrome plated reusable sink caddy. Great for birthdays, hostess gifts, ‘thank you’ gifts, or just because, this brings all the sweet with none of the seeds!

Tranquil Bath & Body Spa Gift Basket: This indulgent basket truly has it all – everything she’ll need to relax in a much-needed bath at the end of an exhausting summer day! Swimming in the scent of sweet pea, you’ll find shower gel, body lotion, bar soap, body butter and foot cream. And if her tootsies need a little extra pampering all their own, our exhilarating peppermint foot soak will get the job done with the help of the included foot brush – bye-bye rough heels! We round out this lovely lineup with a sumptuously soft satin eye mask and hair towel so she can drift into dreamland peacefully post-pampering.
