Thanksgiving is over and now Christmas is approaching quickly! With that in mind, I have come up with 10 reasons why you should give the gift of cookies and other sweet treats this year.

The Gift of Cookies

Your shopping is almost done and you’ve never been happier. Unfortunately, you have two people left on your list and can’t think of a single thing to buy them. Buying gifts for these people can sometimes be the most challenging task during the Holidays. The recipient is either too picky, wants something out of your price range, he/she couldn’t think of anything to ask for, or has everything already. I am faced with this dilemma year after year: What do I buy?

Cookie Gift Boxes

Fortunately, after working at Cheryl’s I have been exposed to the solution to all of my shopping woes. Cookies! I am not a baker by any means; being able to purchase a product that I know will taste homemade is an added bonus! Here are the top ten reasons why I think giving cookies is the best solution for the hard-to-buy recipient.

 

 

 

 

  1. Packaging Options: a variety of fun seasonal patterns and designs from elegant to whimsical
  2. Customize the gift:  create-your-own gift with the recipient’s favorite cookies
  3. Affordable Gifts: even those on a tight budget can find great gifts like the $5 cookie card
  4. Order now, ship later: by-pass a stop at the post-office or UPS
  5. One Stop Shopping: shop from home without having to brave the wintery cold air
  6. Personal Message: no need to go to a card store. Cheryl’s offers a variety of greeting cards that can be customized and sent with the gift
  7. No Lines: escape the long wait in lines that wrap around aisle after aisle
  8. Great for any age: no matter if the recipient is five or 85, who doesn’t love cookies!
  9. Best Guarantee: Cheryl’s will ensure the quality, freshness, and presentation are the best in the business
  10. Free APO/FPO Military Shipping: even loved ones overseas can enjoy Holiday cookies with Cheryl’s free shipping to military bases

Thanksgiving

Thanks & Gratitude

November 19, 2013

Hi everyone! My name is Maria. Recently, I joined the marketing team at Cheryl’s and Co to help out for the busy Holiday season and am very excited! I will be a guest blogger throughout the Holiday season.

Thanksgiving 

It is mid-November what do you hear: the ringing of sleigh bells or the gobbling of a turkey? Many would say the ringing of sleigh bells as the Holiday season is top of mind for a lot of people. While the Holiday season is almost near, Thanksgiving is even closer with about one week left!

Over the past several years, I have noticed Thanksgiving Day seems to have become the prep day for the hustle and bustle of the Holiday season and is often overlooked. On this day people strategically plan their Black Friday shopping by browsing the ads, creating shopping lists, and napping for energy to combat the long lines and enormous crowds. Sadly, the real meaning of Thanksgiving is overlooked with the preoccupation of shopping and getting the “best” deal.

I love Thanksgiving as it is one of my favorite holidays of the year! It is spent watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade with all the floats, marching bands, and big finale with Santa’s arrival. Football games play on the T.V. all day until 4 PM when everyone gathers together around the table not only to eat an abundance of hearty food but also to give thanks and gratitude. While eating, naps, and football watching all make for a relaxing day, the best part is being able to share what I am thankful for and spend time with family.

This Thanksgiving Day think about what you are thankful for and express your gratitude. Take a step back from the hustle and bustle of the encroaching Holiday season and enjoy a day complete with delicious hearty food, long naps, laughter, love, football, and relaxation. Put down those newspaper ads, turn off the computers, and stop planning ahead. Live in the moment and listen closely and maybe you will hear the Turkey gobbling away…

What are you thankful for? Share your thoughts!
