Gourmet Gift Baskets are a gift of love! {giveaway}

I love giving (and receiving) gifts. Who doesn't, right? But I like to receive gifts that I can use, or that reflect my style or taste in some way. It's also a reflection of the giver, because they took the time and trouble to select a gift that they thought I'd really enjoy.

So what snack food aficionado wouldn't love the new Midnight Snack Care Package from Gourmet Gift Baskets!
We have all been there. It's 12 a.m. and your stomach is growling for something to satisfy you. After a trip to the cupboard you find there's nothing there, so you run to the local convenience store and pick out your favorite junk food. Now that gas is very expensive, this care package will save you that expense and fill the cupboard with numerous midnight snacks at the same time.

The Midnight Snack Care Package is an amazing selection of the most craved midnight snacks, quick eats, and full meals to indulge every last yearning. As with all of Gourmet Gift Baskets' care packages this one is guaranteed to cure any midnight snack craving! Everything from Chef Boyardee meals to Easy Mac to Oreos and animal crackers are included in this mega assortment. Send a care package that makes their tummy dance, especially when they need it most!

Do you have a favorite person who never seems to eat right, who never has food on hand, who sometimes may even go hungry? How about a college student with precious little time to spare and no storage space to speak of? What about that youngster away at camp, yearning for a midnight snack to tide them over until breakfast? And Dads! Celebrate your Little Leaguer's first win with a snack package the whole team can enjoy! Can't be home for your daughter's first slumber party? Have a Midnight Snack Care Package delivered to let her know you're thinking of her!

Anyone would be honored and tickled pink to receive the Midnight Snack Care Package from Gourmet Gift Baskets. You know Gourmet Gift Baskets... they make and sell some of the most awesome gift baskets you'll find anywhere. Many of them come in an actual basket, wrapped and presented perfectly. Those are great for occasions where presentation counts.

But for those who don't care about the basket or the presentation, Gourmet Gift Baskets' Care Packages are the way to go. When you see this box land on your doorstep:
you know there's something wonderful inside!!

And the Midnight Snack Care Package certainly doesn't disappoint. It's chock full of a very wide assortment of goodies, from favorite "junk" food to wholesome alternatives. Take a look:
Can't you just see the look of absolute delight on your recipient's face when they open this box!

Let me tell you what all was included in the Midnight Snack Care Package that I received:

* Doritos Nacho Cheese
* T.G.I. Friday's Cheddar & Bacon Potato Skins
* Chex Mix Traditional
* Snyder's of Hanover Mini Pretzels
* Cheez-It crackers
* Orville Redenbacher's Smart Pop! 94% fat free butter microwave popcorn
* Austin Zoo Animal Crackers
* Welch's Real Fruit Snacks White Grape Peach
* Rice Krispies Treats
* Oreo cookies
* Elsa's Story Blueberry Filled Butter Cookies
* Kraft Macaroni & Cheese microwave single serving cup
* Pringles Original Potato Crisps
* Chef Boyardee Beefaroni microwave single serving cup
* Kellogg's Frosted Flakes single serving box
* Del Monte 50 calorie Mixed Fruit single serving cup
* Austin Peanut Butter Cheese Crackers
* Planters Salted Peanuts
* Kraft Handi-Snacks Ritz crackers 'n cheese dip
* Swiss Miss Milk Chocolate hot cocoa mix
* Nabisco Fat Free Fig Newtons
* Nature Valley Chewy Trail Mix Fruit & Nut
* Quaker Chewy Granola Bar Chocolate Chip
* Kellogg's Nutri-Grain Cereal Bar Strawberry
* Slim Jim Original Smoked Meat Snack
* Mentos Fruit
* Minute Maid 100% Juice Fruit Punch
* Yoohoo Chocolate Drink

WHEW!! That's a lot of snack food!! And as you can see, there's a wide variety, something for everyone, and even some sneaky healthy choices. And all for only $34.99 plus shipping.
I couldn't resist sampling a few things right out of the box, and let me tell you, these aren't some cheap knock-off versions, these are the brand names you know and trust. I even checked the expiration dates and everything is fresh as it can be.
Now, if you're a frugal shopper like me, you might be thinking okay, that's all well and good, but I could just go buy all that stuff myself and make up a "care package" and mail it to my special someone.

Yeah, you could.

But why reinvent the wheel when Gourmet Gift Baskets does it for you, much more conveniently and much more economically. You'd have to buy multi-packs of just about everything to get the single packs you want to include. Mailing it will cost you even more. And don't even get me started on the price of gasoline for all that shopping and running around!

To me it's a no-brainer: Gourmet Gift Baskets is the way to go because they've done the work for you. Gourmet Gift Baskets does gift baskets right!
The Midnight Snack Care Package is just one of many Care Packages that Gourmet Gift Baskets offers, in addition to all their other well-loved gift baskets. Show someone how much you care! Send a Gourmet Gift Basket product and feel confident that your gift is the freshest quality and filled with the most-loved products.
