Sesame Gifts Giveaway {Bonus Giveaway to Celebrate You}

 The Thrifty Nifty Mommy Blogger Network has decided that because we have such great, loyal readers, you deserve something special. So today we are Celebrating You one more time! Today with Sesame Gifts.

 Sesame is a company that believes happiness comes from experiences, and they want to create great experiences for you in their themed gift boxes. I was recently given the opportunity to choose one of their gift boxes that I felt would be great with Mothers Day approaching.

 Choosing the box....well that was the hard part. Sesame offers a variety of boxes, everything from something to welcoming a new baby to cocktail hour can be completed with these unique gifts. Since I was going for a "Mothers Day" box this narrowed my selection down some, but still which direction did I want to go? This is where Sesame really comes alive, they are catering to everyone's wants & desires. Do you want a relaxing evening soaking in the tub, or maybe some great teas to enjoy in the afternoon. The choice is yours! For me, I went with Breakfast in Bed, I love a nice hot breakfast and I love it even more when someone prepares it for me. :)

 In the Breakfast in Bed box you will find everything you need for a yummy & cozy start to your day. A gourmet chocolate chip pancake/waffle mix, organic english breakfast tea, a ceramic mug with diffuser and lid, a cute little paper flower and a vase to put it in , a black and white damask napkin and a sweet frame. 

 Let me just say that we are HUGE pancake and waffle fans in our home, not just me , but the hubs and the kids too. That is our choice of breakfast very often, and the hubs or I always make them from scratch; yes my hubs is very handy in the kitchen. ;-) I have honestly never been a fan of box mix anything! However I was very excited to try out this mix, its all natural and doesn't have a laundry list of ingredients. Now I will be honest in saying that I didn't eat these in bed....nor did I end up relaxing while someone else made them. The hubs and I take turns sleeping in a little on Saturdays, and this weekend was his. So I got up with my youngest two kiddos (our oldest was with my parents) and I made up a batch of waffles. We love pancakes, but I was really in the mood for waffles...these were super easy to make, just add a little water and butter. One batch gave me just two big waffles, but they were delicious!!! My little guy loved them too, he kept saying "mmm.....cookie!!" , I guess they reminded him of a big chocolate chip cookie. :)

 The little accessories that come in the Breakfast in Bed box make for such a beautiful setting. I think the paper flower is so cute and unique. 

  Lastly the box comes with a mug and some loose tea. Now, I am not a huge tea drinker, I am more of a coffee fan especially to get my morning started. Over the past 6 months or so I have really began to enjoy a nice cup of hot tea before bed. However loose tea just hasn't been my thing, I have tried a few different diffusers just to have some loose tea particles end up in my drink...and thats just not my "cup of tea" . So I was anxious to try out this ceramic mug with diffuser, let me just say WOW! This thing is incredible, not one little tea particle in my drink and the ceramic lid is wonderful for keeping my tea hot while steeping. The tea that comes with this set is incredible as well, it honestly may make the best cup of hot tea I have ever had! I am in love!!

 I am loving this box, everything in it is just  a great way to start the day and I am extremely thrilled that I now have a nice mug to make some great tea with! Sesame has a great thing going on here, and this is a great gift idea! With Mothers Day quickly approaching you can head on over to Sesame and choose the box that will be best for your mom!
