The other week I had a friend get sick and ended up sending him some flowers and gave a call. It sort of reminded me when I was younger and I would always catch the flu or break an arm or end up getting hurt somehow doing something stupid or get the flu because I used to love to play when it rained outside in the rain. Not to mention I always loved the snow, and everytime I would end up with the flu or in the hospital I would always get at least one Cookie Bouquet which was always my favorite gift.
People would always send a huge tin of popcorn or stuffed animals or one time I got a roll of steel pennies and another time a really cool balloon gram gift, but my favorite gift which someone always ended up buying was definitely the cookie bouquet.
Not only did the cookies always make me smile and the icing taste amazing, but they also were like artwork and I loved getting to show them off to people. The best part, besides eating the cookie bouquet was the cool wrapping and all of the colorful paper that came with it too because we would fold it up and use it to make decorations and even use it to regift the things I didn’t really like to my sister so she wouldn’t feel left out. Anyways, the point of this rambling is that when my friend was sick and I sent flowers to him, I should have actually thought of something more creative and original like a cookie bouquet from Cookie Surprises.
One of my nieghbors up the street is a single mom and raising two kids and was looking for a way to start a new business and bring in some extra money. I ended up running into her accidently and ended up having a really good conversation with her. She told me about what she was doing and about how she decided to start a business online that she could not only do from home, but also get her kids involved in to not only teach them responsibility, but also about business and let them really earn their allowance by helping their mom get her new business off the ground.
She told me about her mom always buying her ginger bread cookies when she was younger and how much she loved them and when she thought about something fun she could do that would also help her earn some extra money and help to teach her kids about business, she combined one of her favorite childhood memories with her passion and something fun and created Cookie Surpises which delivers cookie bouquets and cookie boxes that are not only decorated and themed, but wrapped gorgeously and look fabulous. She also told me about how much fun she has getting to watch people open then like when she randomly sent one to her mom without her mom knowing about her new company and when her mom opened the cookie bouquet, she not only light up, but she put the colored paper in her hair and immediately started to show off the cool and perfectly decorated cookies to everyone in the room. That story reminded me of my favorite cookie bouquet basket from when I was a little kid which was a bunch of dinosaur cookies in multiple colors and different types of dinosaurs. My favorite dinosaur cookie was always the blue or green brontesoraus (spelled wrong) or the red and orange tyranasorous or the stegasorous,,,,wow my spelling is bad lol….and then my second favorite cookie gift was the hot air balloon cookie basket I got from my uncle who loved hot air ballooning.
Cookie Gifts are not only something people remember for a lifetime, but they are fun and almost liek artwork that people love to show off…not to mention delicious to eat and even more fun to play with…ohhh and eat and that is why I wanted to recommend buying a cookie bouquet for your next gift for someone. They are perfect for birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, the holidays, barmitzvahs and everything else where you need to buy a gift and what makes the cookie gifts from Cookie Surprises unique is that you can custom create your own cookie gift instead of having to rely on them creating the basket or box for you.
This also means that if you would want to order them for a gay wedding or for a special occasion that normally wouldn’t happen or be available, you could order to brides dresses or two tuxedos and also wedding bells and flowers or other decorative cookies and if you need something for someone who has a million interests, you can easily mix and match the cookies to make the perfect cookie gift for anyone.
In case you wanted to see some of my favorites, or even if you didn’t, I wanted to show you a few of the cookie gifts that I fell in love with on the site.
