Fathers' Day Giveaway from 1-800-Flowers



"Be kind to thy father, for when thou wert young,
Who loved thee so fondly as he?
He caught the first accents that fell from thy tongue,
And joined in thy innocent glee."
- Margaret Courtney

Wow! Father's Day is coming up in only one week! Have you thought about how you will celebrate and honor your father or husband? It seems that gifts for my dad are always a little bit harder for me than for mom. My dad and husband aren't into flowers all that much, but I know some dads are. Whether Dad likes flowers or not, here's a suggestion --

1-800-FLOWERS.com makes gift-giving so easy for you, you'll wonder why you haven't given it a try before. I have to admit, I didn't even know until recently that they had a section just for Dads -- and it's 3 pages long! You can browse all of the selections or sort by price. They have everything form Grilling Steak Sauces to Dish Gardens.

I ordered a Golf Bag Cooler that was packed with snacks for my husband. I couldn't believe how quickly it arrived!




Check out the 1-800-FLOWERS site and if you love it like I do, then go ahead and enter to win a fabulous gift -- a $40 Gift Certificate. Use it now or later, but you can't win if you don't enter!!!



1. Leave a comment after visiting the 1-800-FLOWERS.com web site about something new you learned there..
 
2. For a second chance to win, sign up as an e-mail subscriber with Feedburner, Feed Blitz, or become a Google Follower (see sidebar.) Then leave a second comment telling me you have subscribed or that you are already a subscriber.
If you subscribe in more than one way, leave a separate comment for each.
 
3. For a third chance to win, blog or Tweet about this contest with a link here, then come back and leave another comment telling me about it.
 
4. For a fourth chance to win, subscribe to the 1-800-FLOWERS.com newsletter (bottom of the page), then come back and tell me that you have done that.
 
5. If you're not a blogger, be sure to leave your contact e-mail address like this to avoid spammers: pianananna(at)gmail(dot)com. If I don't have a way to reach you or you don't respond in three days, your name will be disqualified, and I will choose again, picking my favorite answer.
Good Luck!!
 
Open to US residents only, 18+.
Winners will be chosen by random.org.

I was surprised to learn about all the options offered by 1-800-Flowers in addition to traditional bouquets -- I had no idea they offered bonsai plants, house plants, food baskets, and chocolate as well. Very cool! I also enjoyed looking through the Father's Day gift options; they had many different themed flowers or baskets geared toward a lot of different "dad-like" hobbies and interests, which is great. Thanks!
