I recently received a really sweet (literally) package at my door from Doodlebuckets Gift Baskets. Doodlebuckets is a shop that specializes in baby gift baskets, but also carries other unique gifts. Doodlebuckets generously offered me one of their beautiful gift baskets for review, and after some deliberation I chose the America The Beautiful Snack Gift Box. This gift comes beautifully packaged and wrapped, all ready for gift-giving. Or for snacking! Of course, the hard part was to get pictures before the family started munching!
I could not believe how many goodies were stashed in the American Flag gift box. Cracker Jacks, Oreos, M&M's, Peanut M&M's, Skittles, Starburst, Twizzlers, Cheez-Its, Popcorn, Chex Mix, Famous Amos Cookies, Peanuts, and Sweet Tarts. And a Patriotic book, of course-Flag by Victor Friedman. This book is a visual tribute to our nation's flag. Photos throughout the book span 5 decades, and a multitude of environments.
I split the snacks between the kids (and kept a stash for myself). I felt there was a good variety of sweet, salty and sour, as well as a mixture of type-not just all candy or all cookies like many gift baskets I have received. There was something for everyone! E is a Twizzler hog, so he ended up with the entire package :) I love Famous Amos cookies and popcorn, so I hid these for myself.
