In honor of National Gratitude Day (Sept. 19), 1-800BASKETS.COM wants to encourage you to spread the love in September!!!

1-800-BASKETS.COM sponsored a survey to find what gratitude means to Americans, and which individuals in our lives we owe the most appreciation. The results show that parents swept the competition, as 61 percent of respondents agreed that mom and dad deserve the most gratitude.

National Gratitude Day is an opportunity to give credit to the most important people in your life and 1-800-BASKETS.COM is making it easy (and affordable) with limited edition, handcrafted gourmet gifting options under $20, including:

All Smiles Gourmet Sweets Gift Basket ($9.99)
Apple Pie Caramel Apple ($19.99)

I am grateful for so many people in my life, including my parents.  I do agree that I feel that my mom and dad deserve so much gratitude for being such great role models for me and now for my children.  They are good people and will do anything, for anyone.   That is so important to me to teach my children and I hope that I can do just as good of a job as they have done for me.

I’m also very grateful to have my best friend, Jodi.  We’ve known each other for 20 years and her friendship means so much to me.  She’s always there for me when I need a friend, she doesn’t judge me and she always has something good to say to make me feel better.  Even if she just agrees with me, even though she may not actually agree with me, but she knows that’s what I need to hear sometimes.  I truly and SOOO grateful for her and I don’t know what I would do if I didn’t have her in my life.  She’s taught me how to be a good friend, she’s like the sister I never had.

I received the All Smiles Gourment Sweets Gift Basket for my review and it couldn’t of come at a better time.  Jodi and I had a girls weekend this past weekend. We do it once a year and I always look forward to it.  You see, we live 3 states apart  – though in New England it’s not that far but far enough that we don’t get to see each other very often.  I took the All Smiles Gift Basket with me and gave it to her and explained to her why I was giving it to her, because I was so grateful for her.  We enjoyed the cookies and popcorn together on our girls weekend and the rest she took home to share with her kids.  She loved it and what it represented.
