Celebrate National Gratitude Day with 1-800-Baskets.com {Review & Giveaway}

1-800-Baskets.com logo{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, bloomerbear!}

Sometimes I feel as though the calendar is filled with a huge collection of bizarre holidays that we don't even know about... and what's the point of them? Are there really people who celebrate National Dress Up Your Pet Day (January 14th), Movie Theater Day (April 23rd), and Name Your PC Day (November 20th)?

I mean, I've put a shirt on a dog, watched a movie, and called my computer some pretty choice names in the past, but I don't think that means that any of them called for a national holiday.

But this month I've been introduced to a little-known holiday that I actually agree with: National Gratitude Day, occurring on September 19. Who doesn't need a reminder that we should celebrate the people in our lives that deserve our gratitude?

This year there's no reason to skip the holiday thanks to 1-800-Baskets.com and the fun and affordable way that they have to tell your relatives, teachers, neighbors, and friends that you appreciate them: the All Smiles Gourmet Sweets & Treats Gift Basket.

gift basketArriving tied with a citrus green bow in a colorful, collectible smiling box, this adorable gift is sure to put a grin on your recipient's face. Filled with delicious gourmet sweets and treats including Cheryl’s Chocolate Chip Cookies, Red Delicious apple caramels, rich Butter Toffee, The Popcorn Factory Kettle Popcorn and a special sugar cookie that’s decorated with a chocolate smile, you're sure to make their sweet tooth happy.

Typically I would expect to find a gift basket of this size packaged with this variety of indulgences for at least $29.99. But at 1-800-Baskets.com, there's really no reason to not participate in National Gratitude Day when the All Smiles Gift Basket retails for only $9.99! You can't go wrong!

In addition to this great gift basket, 1-800-Baskets.com is hosting a National Gratitude Day story contest on their Facebook page in which participants submitted their own story of gratitude and how they have said thank you to a special person in their life or have been recognized themselves.

Voting will be begin soon, so you'll want to head over and vote for your favorite and help pick the lucky winner of a Cucina Rustica Italian Gift Basket!

italian gift basket Focusing on uncompromising quality, value, dedicated artisanship, detailed presentation and a passionate commitment to what they do, 1-800-Baskets.com believes that they have created a truly better gift basket and are proud to share that with their customers. Knowing that a great gift basket is one that is a true reflection of you – of your taste, your style – they want you to be completely satisfied with the end product reflecting just how you feel about the person you're buying it for.

This year, as well as sending one of their wonderful gifts to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, new baby, wedding and many more, don't forget National Gratitude Day on September 19th to make it known to the special people in your life that you value them.

And, thanks to their generosity, one person will be able to do just that, because...

One lucky person will win the All Smiles Gourmet Sweets & Treats Gift Basket from 1-800-Baskets.com!
