After all, who doesn't get turned on by.... CAKE! yeah.
I have a bunch of guy friends and I never know what to get them as gifts, so baked goods are always a good idea. I was searching on 965flowers.com for "male-appropriate" gift items. It is a hard call to find something that is even slightly masculine and that they might actually enjoy. Yes, I've sent flowers before, but that can get some giggles in the office, so I try not to offend/embarrass (unless it is on purpose and then it is just purple ALL the way).
I placed 2 orders from CRUMBS Bakery through 965flowers.com. I chose them purely for aesthetic reasons: they made a nice presentation and the baked goods looked like they could be gender-appropriate. I sent one box as a thank-you gift to a friend at the US Embassy (and dude please - any time you want to invite me back, it has been a YEAR now. I sent BAKED GOODS!); and the other to a friend who had a birthday recently (an assortment of cake balls in a nice box).
Following my last order, I got THE most professional response from CRUMBS that I've ever had anywhere. Now, this was the type of "how did we do?" note that I would send if I owned a business. It was sincere and showed that they really cared. I sent her back a note thanking her for the effort she extended through the e-mail; and that I was embarrassed because I've never actually tried their offerings before, but I ordered due to the reasons I mentioned above. What happened next (unsolicited because you know me - I don't do that) made my whole week: She sent me a "Love Box" (first photo above - it is about a 12" square box maybe 5" deep) and a little bouquet of pink roses. Awwwwwwwwwww. (Why aren't men like this???) What an incredibly kind thing to do!
I am now singin' their praises, my friends. Not only pretty, but really really delicious. It was melt-in-your-mouth kind of quality. (I'm so used to getting dried-out, flavorless sweets that these really rocked my world!) I highly recommend them. Professional, respectful, considerate, sincere - AND with outstanding, well-presented, FRESH, and well- prepared products.
Readers! Please feel free to send me more of these. I was forced to share the first box with friends, so I have a legitimate excuse for "needing" more! Yummmm.
