A Harry & David Mother’s Day Giveaway {Giveaway Closed}

Harry & David Mother's Day Tower of Treats Gift Deluxe Giveaway | www.foodiewithfamily.com

 

Harry & David sent me a Mother’s Day Tower of Treats Gift Deluxe (ARV $59)  to review and has offered to give an identical gift tower to one lucky Foodie with Family reader in celebration of Mother’s Day. I do so love Harry & David.

You know ‘Mom’ is ‘Wow’ upside down, right?

How perfect is that? Every mother is aware how very upside down and wowed you spend most of your days. We think we’ve gone down the rabbit hole with diapers and spit-up, but every single day proves that you ain’t seen nothing yet. It’s the beginning of  a lifetime of your heart being a dishrag that just keeps sopping up love and being wrung out just in time to soak up more love that you didn’t see coming.

…Just in time for Mother’s Day, my good friends at Harry & David ride to the rescue once again with a perfect gift to give to a deserving mother in your life, whether it’s yours, your spouse’s, your own, or a really nice lady down the street who mothers all the lonely kids. THIS mom is telling you that a stack of pretty boxes filled with treats of all kinds and tied together with a beautiful satin ribbon is a splendiferous way to show your appreciation. Have you TRIED their Royal Riviera pears yet? Let me explain how good the pears are… Each opportunity I’ve had to review and give away one of Harry & David’s gifts, I’ve deliberately chosen one with the pears because they rock my world. There is no other pear that is so tender and juicy that it’s easiest to eat if you cut it in half and scoop the flesh with a spoon. Seriously. What mom wouldn’t love that?

It’s not just full of pears, though; look at all the goodies in there…

Most of us have more than one mama for whom to buy or make a gift.  If you’re stuck for ideas, you must hop over to Harry&David and look at their selection of Mother’s Day gifts. If your mom loves gardening, cheesecake, fruit, wine, cheese, flowers, tea, candy, chocolates, cake, cookies, wreaths, and birdhouses, they have you covered and there’s still seven days to order and have your gift arrive on time!

The giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to Terah, the college student! Please check your email and get back to me quickly. Your mama is going to be thrilled!

Comments

  1. My Momma SO deserves this! She’s such a hard working lady and she’s always doing things for me, my Dad and my siblings, even though we’re all grown. If I could give her anything and everything she ever wanted, I would.

  2. My Mom is pretty amazing, so I’d give it to her! Thanks Bec!

  3. I’d totally send this to my grandma in Miami! She is SUCH a closet sweet-tooth, meaning she won’t MAKE any sweets (she actually doesn’t love to cook) but she’ll buy chocolate and stash it, hiding it from my grandpa. Poor grandpa, I know. So if she gets this tower, it’d be hard to sneak it and she’d share it with everyone! Plus, she’s pretty cool and I need to call her TODAY.

  4. I would send it to my mother, but she is in Heaven. Sooo, maybe I would take it and invite some of my girlfriends over who are awesome moms and we could have a party!

  5. Oh my gosh my Mama is crazy about Harry & David treats! I would so give them to her. She is the most caring and thoughtful woman I know. She raised me to be strong and sensitive. As a single Mom she worked hard for everything we had. I would love to surprise her with this gorgeous gift.

  6. No kids of my own, but I serve as the bad example/cautionary tale for many excellent mothers (“You better straighten up or you’ll turn out like your crazy Aunt Jamie”). One of them surely deserves this beautiful tower.

  7. Selfishly, I may keep this for myself. I became a mama, for the first time, two weeks ago. The experience has been overwhelming and amazing. I’ve never felt such strong emotions before. And, let’s face it, snacks are appreciated when a newborn reigns!

  8. Laurie Senn Sagerman says:

    Well Rebecca, since Ma’s in Heaven, probably eating lots of treats…..I guess this would be for me! I Love Harry and David, everything they ship is a gift you can be proud of. I did recieve a H&D Gift many years ago…..and in one sitting ate every chocolate covered red goodie in the box…Happy Mothers Day to Every Ma out there…. And Happy Spring!!! :)

  9. No flowery heartfelt extra words… just… I’d give this to my momma. :)

  10. Me Rebecca! I’ll share the pears. I just want the Baclava all to myself.

  11. My birthday is the day after Mother’s Day this year, so, ummm…
    Yeah.
    Me.
    I’d get sweets and pears for me.

  12. Maybe I’d share…if I did not open it just to sample :) So me…and my “moms”.

  13. This would be for my wonderful mother!

  14. I would totally give it to my mother, a big Harry & David fan…

  15. My mother! Most amazing woman on earth… raising three daughters within 3 years of each other is no small feat!

  16. Heather Spooner says:

    I would give it to my Mom. She loves Harry and David and I love her, so its a perfect gift. Thanks so much!

  17. Marcie Smith says:

    I’m the Mom now that mine is gone… so thanks in advance. Happy Day to all.
    This would be a nice treat for myself…..I used to wish my mom would do more treat kind of things for herself instead of her family… so I’ve always tried to do that myself once in a while… this would be a dandy!

  18. I would totally give this to my mom, but she won’t eat any of it and that would just be a waste. I’m going to nominate myself for this treat. I’m a mom of one and a wife to a husband that’s been unemployed for 2.5 years now, battling his disability, and most of the juggling of our family and life falls to me. I could use some chocolate!

  19. vaishali says:

    It would be me…my mom is in India!!

  20. I would give this to my sweet mother-in-law. She has been so good. I’ve never felt like an “inlaw”. She’s had a tough time in her life. She lost 2 babies years ago and she lost her sweetheart (my father-in-law) to cancer nearly 14 years ago. Through it all she has shown love, compassion, and service to those around her. She’s the best!

  21. Judy in CA says:

    My sweet mom, who is in a residential nursing home, and could sure use some cheering up.

  22. merrie main says:

    I would like it delivered to a very sweet and loving lady, no she’s not my mom,mother -in-law, or any relation. This lady has done lots for many people and she is just great. The lady I choose is Laurie Senn Sagerman. She deserves this gift.

  23. Sue Grone says:

    As much as I would like to say I would send this to my mom, I love Harry & David so much I would more than likely keep it for myself. Terrible, I know. But I think I’m a pretty good Mom. So I deserve it, right? Plus,I love pears too and my mom doesn’t.

  24. Well, I would probably in the end send it to my ever helpful, lovin mama, but I would seriously consider keeping it, since my birthday is the week after Mother’s Day and I am a Mama too…but if she is here I could just SHARE it, and then everyone would be happy!

  25. Oh, BOY, would I love to win this for my mom! She is the most encouraging person in my life; things have been rough for me and my husband, and she’s ALWAYS doing something to benefit us. I don’t have any money this year to get her something; winning this would be SUCH a blessing. Thanks for such a generous giveaway! Be BLESSED!

  26. AlysonRR says:

    My mom and I would share it – she’s spending her first Mother’s Day as a widow, and my husband is going to be away (kids too small to pick anything for me)…

  27. Susan Jalosky says:

    My sister, Lynette, is truly deserving of this treat! She was the main caregiver to our wonderful mom, along with my dad, that we lost on December 1st 2011. She worked at her job to support herself and then went to care for our mom each evening after work. The things she gave up in those 6 years can never be replaced but the time she spent with mom will also give her the greatest joy.

  28. I’ve had a tough year and my mom has been so very supportive – loving, listening, praying, caring, giving, hugging, taking me out to lunch & shopping… I would love to be able to give her a special treat this Mother’s Day.

  29. carrie s says:

    I think my mom should get this not me as she is a very giving lady. She takes care of her friend and neighbor 24/7, she is always giving money to help my brother and his family, she is always buying things for me at yard sale that I need for my canning addiction and cooking addiction and spends very little on herself even though she is on a limit income.

  30. It’s for me! I’m a mamma for my whole clan!

  31. Karen Adams says:

    My daughter – in -law deserves this treat because she works so hard and gives of herself but rarely gets the praise she deserves.

  32. Ellen Renee says:

    I would split it between all the moms in my life (mom, step-mom, and mother-in-law) who have all fallen/or been in a car wreck and broke their hips this past winter. It has been a trial to say the least.

  33. I would give it to my sister!

  34. Allison Wible says:

    I would send it to my mom.

  35. I would really like to get this! I would share, though.

  36. My mom! I’ve been a pretty hard-to-handle kid – not just because of, well, being a kid – and she’s carried me through every struggle I’ve had without once wincing at one of the many medical bills or doctor visits she’s had to put up with or fights she’s had to break up for my sake. She’s gotten through divorce and come out fighting. She’s a cancer survivor. She takes care of her own parents. She’s going for her Ph.D. even with everything else on her shoulders. She’s a superhero, she’s a miracle-worker, she’s a master cook, she’s an inspiration, and she’s beautiful, loving, and stronger than anyone else I’ve ever known.

    And best of all? She loves me more than she loves chocolate. For someone with a chocolate sweet tooth like hers, that takes some commitment, let me tell you.

  37. I would like to be selfish and keep this for myself, but I won’t. I would give it to my daughter who is a mom to two beautiful daughters. She is by far a better mom than I was, really. I don’t know how she does it, but maybe she learned from my mistakes.

  38. Peggy Nagy says:

    Ummm.. I was totally thinking of myself as I clicked through and then you suggested giving it away… now guilt and indecision have kicked in…

  39. Ronnie Condron says:

    My beautiful daughter Shannah would receive this. She has given me two adorable granddaughters and has just informed me that she and her husband are expecting another one in December!

  40. Michelle B says:

    My daughter needs Mom’s Day treats. She has 2 beautiful stepsons that are like her own and is hoping to be expecting again after a tragic loss! She deserves every treat I can send her way!

  41. Robin Wilcox says:

    I would give it to my mother-in-law Madeline. She has Alzheimer’s Disease, late stage. She still loves sweets and she would probably share with her husband who is also her caregiver. They both would enjoy this so much.

  42. Definitely my mom and fellow foodie.

  43. I would give it to my mother, who has put her kids first her whole life, as a hardworking single mother.

  44. My mom or me :) or my MIL or my grandma… too many to choose from!

  45. I’d give it to my mom. She’s pretty amazing, AND she’ll be working on Mother’s Day – she is a nursing home nurse and is so selfless.

  46. I think my mom since we vowed to only give consumable and delicious gifts to my favorite packrat!

  47. My mom…she’s the best!

  48. I would give it to my wife. The mother of our new son Micah =).

  49. Christina says:

    My mom deserves all the sweets in the world!

  50. Shannon G says:

    I’d have my mommy friends over for tea & share it!
