Mrs. Fields Gift Baskets for Mother's Day, Father's Day, or Anyday

Last Friday afternoon, my husband officially started his week off from work.  He was looking forward to a week of quiet and rest during the days while the children are in school.  I wanted to give him a "happy week off" gift, so I ordered a basket of treats from for him to enjoy during his time off.  (I also wanted to soften the blow for when I revealed his honey-do list for the week.)

I had no idea that Shari's Berries offered other goodies besides gourmet dipped strawberries and other dipped treats.  There were tons of great gift ideas for Mother's Day and Father's Day.  What caught my eye were the gift baskets in the Mrs. Fields Shop.  How can you go wrong with cookies and mini muffins, whether you are giving a gift, trying to cheer someone up, or sending a heartfelt thank you?

I ended up choosing the Mrs. Fields Bites Basket, which contained assorted bite size cookies, cookie bars, and mini muffins.  For freshness, all the baked goods came in sealed packages in addition to the shrink wrap around the basket itself.  Although the description listed brownie bites to be included in this basket, we did not receive any, which I found to be odd.  We ended up receiving bar cookies, which was not listed in the description.  I suppose the contents must vary based on what is on-hand when the baskets are packed.

I knew that my husband would be looking forward to trying the mini muffins first.  I was quite surprised when he told me that the cookies were exceptional and completely blew away the muffins.  I suppose that's why Mrs. Fields is so famous for her cookies.

If you are thinking about sending a gourmet gift to someone in the near future, be sure to check for Shari's Berries coupon codes and special offers before you shop.  There are currently discounts for orders as little as $29.  Also be sure to plan ahead so you can avoid paying extra for expedited delivery.  Shari's Berries delivers Monday through Saturday.
