There’s A Gift Card Included In My Valentine’s Day Gift Basket?! What Do I Write?

comments 0

Doesn’t it always feel like just when you need to find the right words to say, they’re just never near the tip of your tongue? All of our gift baskets include a gift card where you can write a special, personal message to the gift recipient, and we get calls all the time from customers who simply have no idea what to write! The recipient may mean the world to them, but when it’s time to type out those words, it’s natural to just draw a blank.

Don’t feel intimidated this Valentine’s Day when you’re filling out the gift card in the charming Valentine’s Day Gift Basket you’ve chosen or when you’re writing a message inside that greeting card – here are some examples of great Valentine’s Day quotes of love and friendship to get you started. We’ll never tell that you borrowed them from us – just include a meaningful quote and an “I Love You” or an “I Love Our Friendship!”, and you’ll instantly add warmth to the recipient’s Valentine’s Day.

Valentine’s Day can feel like a lot of pressure, but a perfect Valentine’s Day needs only two ingredients: you and the person(s) you love! You’ve already got your Valentine’s Day Gift Basket chosen and now a message for your gift card, so just be sure you place your order in time – our Valentine’s Day shipping guidelines are:

3 Day Delivery: Must be placed by noon MT on Wednesday, 2/9

After all, it’s always better to be upfront about your expectations on the day and whether you’d like to go out for a fancy dinner or simply relax on the couch with a movie. From all of us at BisketBaskets.com, we hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!

Add The Love And Drop The Stress On This Valentine’s Day

comments 0

We say all the time just how busy life has gotten and how important it is to us to continually stay connected through our cell phones and wifi connection all day. Wouldn’t it be nice to just turn the cell phone off, sit down, read a book, and just shut yourself off for a few hours? But oh, Valentine’s Day is just about two weeks away, and you need to still find gifts for all the people you care about. We bet this is where you say “There’s just not enough hours in the day!” It’s okay, we’re the same way. But this year we’re doing something about it.

Love is the main ingredient in Valentine’s Day – not booking that “must-have” table in a swanky restaurant or buying a three foot tall card. As you prepare for this Valentine’s Day, remind yourself of all the wonderful people in your life who you love. Here’s some stress-free ways you can remind them how much you care about them, minus the stress of having to find that “ideal” gift:

  • Send funny Valentine’s Day cards – Remember those fun Valentine’s Day cards from when you were in grade school? They just seemed to instantly put a smile on everyone’s faces. This Valentine’s Day, no matter your age, select a pack of cute Valentine’s Day cards, write a sweet message, and send them off to friends and family. We know they’ll chuckle when they open it, and it likely put a smile on your face to send them out!
  • Plan to stay in on Valentine’s Day – You and your significant other are always running from one place to another, so wouldn’t it be nice to have a night in? Valentine’s Day is whatever you make it, so don’t feel pressured to go out. Pick up a pre-cooked meal and dessert from your local grocery store, light the candles, dim the lights, and you have a Valentine’s Day dinner that’s completely relaxed.
  • Get together with the girls before Valentine’s Day – Many restaurants and bars spike their prices on Valentine’s Day and are packed to the gills. Get your favorite girls together the night before Valentine’s Day for dinner and drinks. This way, you’ll feel refreshed on Valentine’s Day after having had so much fun the night below, all without having to deal with the hassle of restaurant crowds.
  • Take advantage of modern conveniences – Online shopping has made it much easier to order gifts than having to get in the car and drive to a bunch of different stores. Want to send flowers on Valentine’s Day? Easy, just select the Valentine’s Day Floral Bouquets of your choice, checkout, and we’ll send them for you. Same goes for Valentine’s Day Gift Baskets and Valentine’s Day Cookie Bouquets – just pick out the gifts and cookies you know will put a smile on their face, and we’ll get them on their way!

Whether it be through not feeling pressured to go out to dinner on this Valentine’s Day or easily ordering Valentine’s Day gift baskets and Valentine’s Day cookie bouquets, focusing on the people you care about and the love you have for them, instead of feeling pressured to have the “perfect” Valentine’s Day, will make your Valentine’s Day absolutely wonderful in its own way. What are some stress-free or off-beat ways you love to celebrate Valentine’s Day?

Snowball Fights, Cooking Deliciously, Sending Valentine’s Day Gift Baskets – So Many Reasons To Be Cheerful After The Holidays!

comments 0

The holidays are such a busy time, but there’s just a certain sparkle about it all, isn’t there? There’s joyful Christmas music in the background everywhere, the stores have glittery decorations and product displays, and the twinkle of Christmas lights instantly puts a smile on your face. It can be difficult to get back into the swing of things after the tree is all taken down and the presents are packed away –it’s no wonder why Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) hits big around this time.

Keep that holiday glow alive and your spirit warm by keeping yourself active during these cold winter months. We’re from Parker, Colorado, so we know all about cabin fever. Here’s a few tips that we embrace to keep ourselves upbeat after the holidays:

  • Get Outside! Ski or snowboard, and have a ski mountain close by? Grab a few of your friends and visit your local ski mountain as often as possible. Make a Snowman family with your own family, and enjoy hot cocoa inside after. Go ice skating at a local rink. Have a friendly snowball fight. Make snow angels, no matter what your age. Being outside in the cool air helps revive you and feel refreshed, and as long as you have a warm coat, hat, and gloves on, you’ll be having tons of fun!
  • Hone Your Cooking Skills. You’re cooped up inside most of the winter, so why not hone your healthy cooking skills while you’re at it? The popularity of The Food Network and recipe sites online has made it much easier (and more affordable!) to find healthy recipes that actually taste great, too. Taking the time to whip up a great, healthy meal not only helps you unwind after a stressful day, but gives you the satisfaction of having cooked a delicious dish for you and your family.
  • Get Those Feet Going! Many people vow to lose weight after the holidays, but there’s a whole other reason why indoor exercise is popular in the winter – it increases your endorphins, helping you feel happier (and well, lose those pesky five pounds, too!). Join a local gym and find an exercise routine you actually enjoy, like walking for a half hour at a brisk pace while catching up on your favorite magazine, biking briskly, running while relaxing to your favorite tunes, and more.
  • Plan Get-Togethers With Friends. Make time to plan at least one after-work outing with friends, whether it be going out to dinner or hitting the gym. Try to have a weekly date night with your husband or significant other, even if it’s making shrimp scampi together at home while the kids are out with friends. Having these regular “breaks” built in to your weekly schedule helps you have activities to continually look forward to.

  • Think About Love. Valentine’s Day is only a month away, and whether you have a significant other or not, it’s a day for you to show the people in your life how much you care about them. Sure, it’s best to do this year-round, but there’s nothing wrong with going a little above and beyond on this hearts and flowers themed holiday. Start thinking about the people you appreciate most, and take a look at our Valentine’s Day Gift Baskets to find the right gifts to make saying “I Care About You” so perfect. Gifting will make you feel good, too!

It’ll be another year before we see all those shiny-wrapped presents under the tree, but it is possible to keep that holiday mirth up all year round. Share with us some ideas for helping boost your mood during those frosty winter days!

Sweet And Meaningful Valentine’s Day Ideas

Valentine’s Day is almost here and if you’re still stressing about what to get your sweetie, don’t worry – BisketBaskets.com has you covered. If you don’t have a lot of money to spend this year and still want to do something romantic and thoughtful for that special someone, try out any of these great gifting ideas that don’t cost much.

The Way to a Valentine’s Heart…
…is through the stomach. Instead of taking your valentine out for an expensive dinner, opt to make something at home, but save the dessert until last so you and your honey can enjoy some quality time together in the kitchen. Try baking up something sweet with that special someone, like cupcakes or even heart-shaped brownies. Baking together will be the perfect ending to the perfect Valentine’s Day.
Show Your Valentine Your Artistic Side…
…by making that special someone a homemade card with a handwritten message on the inside. Woo your valentine by including a romantic letter, a photo of you two together, or even a poem you’ve written to show that special someone just how much you care. It’s super inexpensive – and your valentine will get something to always remember this special occasion by!
Get Up and Jive With Your Valentine…
..to a great mix CD you made as a Valentine’s Day present. Include songs that focus on love, or ballads that remind you of your special someone. If you and your sweetie have a dedicated song that you think is “your song”, then be sure to include it on there too. Have some talent? Record a song on your computer that’s sung or played by you and then put it on your mix CD as the final track. Or, you can always just record a special message just for your valentine.

Send a Special Message In Your Bouquet

comments 0

The language of flowers has been around for centuries, as many young lovers looked for ways to communicate without having to write letters or actually meet in person to express feelings. Each and every bloom has an assigned meaning or significance when given to someone special, either alone or in combination with other flowers. Many people, throughout the years, have even written entire love letters in the language of flowers by using specific combinations of flowers in an arrangement.

This Valentine’s Day, if you want to give your special someone something truly wonderful, consider communicating in the language of flowers with your loved one by sending bouquets that include some of these blooms with a special meaning:

Baby’s Breath: purity, innocence, pure of heart.

Camellia: There are a variety of meanings depending on color. Red for excellence. White means adorable and lovely. Pink for “I long for your touch.” Blue means “You are the flame in my heart.”

Carnations: Fascination, admiration, pure love, and “My heart yearns for you.”

Daisy: Cheerfulness, “You’re a wonderful friend”, loveliness, optimism, and abundance.

Forget-Me-Nots: faithful, undying love, “Do not forget”, and memories.

Iris: “Your friendship means the world to me”, faith, hope, and beauty.

Lily of The Valley: Sweetness, “You complete my life”, and the return of happiness.

Orchid: Love, beauty, refinement, and exotic.

Peonies: Happy marriage and prosperity. In China, the word for peony is sho yu meaning “most beautiful”.

Roses: All roses represent love, though each color sends a different message. Red means love, respect, courage. Pink means grace, perfect happiness. Dark pink means gratitude. Light pink means admiration, sympathy. White means innocence, purity, secrecy, “I’m worthy of you” and “You’re heavenly”. Yellow means platonic love or friendship. Orange means passion, desire. Blue means extraordinary, mystery. Red and White means unity.

Sunflowers: Adoration, pride, and of course, sunshine!

And they call it PUPPY LOVE

We just love our four-legged pets here at BisketBaskets.com and so it’s only fitting that we include gifts for them with our Pet Valentine’s Day gift baskets.  We can’t be too far off on this loveable holiday as our Valentine gift baskets for dogs are some very popular gifts being sent each and every year.

With so many of us waiting until everything is just “right” before we have children, many have replaced this emptiness in their lives with pets; dogs, cats, ferrets etc.  The same with those of us among us whose children have left the nest and once again they feel the need to nurture and love.  They have met that emptiness in their lives once again by adopting pets.  So when it comes to taking a step towards displaying that love and devotion that we share with our pets it’s only natural for us to want to gift our four-legged furry friends with a pet Valentine’s Day gift.
