GiftTree - Review & Giveaway



Valentine's Day will be here before you know it. Although I think we should show our appreciation and gratitude to those we love everyday, it's always special to give and receive something on the holiday that is set aside for just that.


This Sweetheart Rose Bouquet is just one of the many items offered at GiftTree that would make a special gift for the one you love. GiftTree is a premier gift basket company that caters to all occasions. The company started in 1997 with the goal of becoming America's favorite destination for gourmet gift baskets and specialty wine gift baskets. However, gift baskets aren't the only thing they offer. Flowers, balloon bouquets, and personalized gifts are available for purchase as well.


I received the Chocolate Decadence with Free Valentine's Day Ribbon gift basket. As you can tell from the picture above, the basket is absolutely beautiful. It was wrapped in a ribbon personalized with my blog name. The extra touch made it seem more personal and special. I now have the ribbon dripped over one of my picture frames. The wicker-type basket itself is made well and can be used to place other items in once the treats are gone. There is a hinged lock to keep it closed and a handle to carry it.

Inside the basket were sweet treats to indulge in. These aren't your everyday chocolates either. Included were 25 Ghiradelli Chocolate Squares in addorted flavors, Lady Walton White Chocolate Amaretto Cookies, Chocolate Covered Fruit, White Chocolate Shortbread Cookies, and Godiva Dark Chocolate Covered Cherries.

My problem was keeping myself from diving right in and eating them all at once. Ghiradelli is one of my favorite brands of chocolate and having that many squares of it was a chocolate lover's dream. I played nice and shared with the family so they could indulge as well. Everything we tried was delicious.

I recommend GiftTree as a place to shop for Valentine's Day or any other occasion to show someone you care.
Win It!

One person will win a $25 gift certificate to use at GiftTree.
