1800Flowers.com Review and Giveaway!

Father's Day is quickly approaching, and if you're husband or dad are anything like mine-they already have EVERYTHING! I struggle every year on what to give my husband and my father, and it doesn't help that they tell me "oh I don't want anything" or "whatever you get me will be just fine!" and while I know that is true, I still would love a hint :D

1800Flowers.com is the solution, for that dad who is just so hard to buy for! They have so much to choose from! I was lucky to get a chance to review one of their awesome gifts in their Father's Day Collection. I chose the Cool Golf Bag Cooler with Snacks. Where we live, golf is the thing to do an a beautiful weekend! While my husband is not an avid golfer, he is still appreciates the sport of golf and a good time! So on my doorstep this gift basket was delivered, and Bill and I opened it together. The Cooler is adorable! It's a good size, I think a nice six pack would fit in there, along with a sandwich or two! And it is sturdy and well made too, so if you've got a crazy driver behind the wheel of your golf cart (or boat, or car!) and the bag is sliding around, your goodies will be safe and intact!
We both have sweet tooth's, so we embarrassingly dove right in to the goodies!
Included in the Cooler were:
* Praline pecan caramels
* Aquafina® Pure Bottled Water
* Pub Snack Mix
* Peanut bar
* Pecan shortbread cookies
* The Popcorn Factory® Caramel Popcorn
* Golf balls
* Golf tees

Everything was delicious! My favorite was the Pub Snack Mix, I'm a sucker for pretzels, while Bill really liked the caramels! My son Cooper was sneaky and snuck off with a a few of the shortbread cookies, he loved them!
So needless to say, this gift would have been a hit with my family had I waited until Father's Day to give it! In fact, the cooler already made it's debut on my husbands fishing boat!
