Show Your Love with Delicious Gifts from Gourmet Gift Baskets #MBPVDGG17

Thank you to Gourmet Gift Baskets for providing me with product in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions share are my own.


What's love got to do with it? Well, what the world needs now is love- sweet love! Cliche, but true! We're gearing up for Valentine's Day at our house, and though I am still recovering from Christmas (didn't that just happen like, yesterday?), I am looking forward to surprising my loved ones with some special treats for the occasion. My husband and I have never really made a big deal about Valentine's Day, but now that we're parents, it's a lot of fun for us to spread the love around to our kiddos and get in on the holiday spirit.

If you're like me, you're a busy gal... between working, kids and/or pets, managing your household, volunteering, you struggle to find time in the day to look for gifts for special occasions and holidays. Well, you've come to the right place if you're in search of Valentine's Day gifts that will delight men and women, kids, and adults!

Gourmet Gift Baskets is the ultimate go-to spot for finding all sorts of delicious treats, specialty gifts and baskets for just about any occasion you might want to celebrate. They have amazing Valentine's Day gifts, too!

GourmetGiftBaskets.com was founded in 2002 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.

Check out one of the lovely packages we received from Gourmet Gift Baskets!

I am a huge lover of all things chocolate and mommy juice (AKA- Wine). Hubby and I are trying to be good and cut way back on our carbs. We stopped drinking white wine (because of the sugar), and cut of desserts (wah!). A nice glass of red wine and a couple of chocolates is a true treat for a couple like us. When I saw this amazing Wine and Chocolate gift basket from Gourmet Gift Baskets, my mouth was watering. I immediately thought of sitting in front of the fireplace with fuzzy socks on, some nice music, and just enjoying this gift basket with my hubby while the kiddos sleep soundly in their beds. Reality check... that'll probably never happen, but we can still enjoy the wine with leftover cauliflower crust pizza on Friday night, and pop a chocolate into our mouths every now and then. True romance at its best.

The gift basket is so decadent, and includes some wonderful yummies! 

All that's shown above came in the wire basket. It was presented so nicely! I can't wait to use the basket as part of my decor in the house. This beautiful basket contained one bottle of red wine, and four different chocolate treats... plus a couple of extra chocolate squares.

White Chocolate Cranberry Gourmet Cookies

Oh, my yum! These are not low carb, but every now and then, we all deserve a little cheat, right? These cookies are amazing! They taste bakery fresh, and incorporate white chocolate and cranberries- a winning combination!

Ghiradelli Chocolate

You just can't go wrong with Ghiradelli Chocolate. It's not possible. I love to purchase these bags of chocolate squares every now and then and keep them in the pantry at home when I need a quick chocolate fix!

Chocolate Caramel Grahams

Three of my favorite things combined... graham crackers, chocolate, and caramel. Did I mention that they are sprinkled with sea salt? These are so good! They are delciious with the wine, too!

Wine and truffles... this is all I need!

Chocolate truffles are one of my favorite indulgences. There is a particular chocolate shop in Asheville, NC (2 1/2 hours from home), and I will drive up there just to get a few of their truffles. Well, these French chocolate truffles are runners up to my local favorites. They are so rich and creamy. Paired perfectly with the wine, this is the ultimate treat on a night in!

Camelot Cabernet... a beautiful bottle that's bursting with notes of serenity!

I am not very well versed in red wine, so this is sort of like an experiment for me. This is a smooth, dry wine, and it's delicious with a steak diner, with pasta (or veggie noodles). It's also perfect when paired with chocolate!




Valentine’s Day Wine & Chocolate 5810

Wine and chocolate are always paired with romance which is why we love this sophisticated Valentine’s Day gift basket.

A beautiful box of delicious cake pops for my sweet boy!

I couldn't let Valentine's Day go by without a special treat for my special boy! B is a huge fan of cake pops, and Gourmet Gift Baskets has a wonderful Valentine's Day cake pops assortment! This set of 10 cake pops came packaged in a beautiful box. We immediately stuck these in the fridge, until we were ready to taste them.

A mix of chocolate and vanilla cake, covered in Belgian chocolate!

It's so nice that they included so many different flavors... many of B's favorites! The actual cake is so moist and yummy! I did take a bite of one, just to try it. We've made homemade cake pops before, but these are so much better than ours!

These look too pretty to eat... almost!

They look lovely, and they taste great! They're beautifully decorated, too! Milk and white chocolate are mixed in this beautiful box of cake pops. We love the sprinkles, and the pretty decor!

Happy boy, happy tummy! Can't wait to try these yummy cake pops!

Balian has been devouring these cake pops two at a time! He loves their flavors, and said that they are so good! Way better than the ones we buy at a popular coffee shop. B gives these cake pops two thumbs up!
