Basket o' Books Review and Giveaway!

I was happy to review a basket of my choice from Basket o' Books!
Just a handful of the many categories on their site are:
Mother's Day is coming up, and Basket o' Books has some great options for this special day! My sister's and I usually always take our mom out to lunch and shopping. If you're a new mom, a basket for yourself could be just what you need.

Basket o' Books gave me a Movie Night basket to review. I wanted something our whole family can enjoy. With my husband and I both working full time, we need as much family time as possible. Basket o' Books personalized our basket to fit our interests.

Our basket was loaded with goodies. They lasted well past one movie! 
Candy, candy and more theater candy!

Plenty of popcorn and crackers! Our kids loved watching me pop the popcorn in the microwave!

The best surprise of all was the movie How to Train Your Dragon. It was a hit with the whole family! My son Mica now says it's his favorite movie.


Basket o' Books really gave us something we needed, time together as a family. They truly think out of the basket!

Basket o' Books has so many baskets to choose from. They are taking orders for Passover, Easter, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Graduations and Weddings, and they also serve the corporate arena with client appreciation gifts and thanks for referrals. Whenever one needs to celebrate or appreciate, they can help!

love the Shopping Basket. I like that they have found so many useful and neat containers to use instead of a typical basket.

I'd like the Movie Night basket, but with a child's DVD rather than Pay It Forward. That movie makes me cry so much, and I've vowed to never sit through it one more time :)
