Gift someone with 621 Gifts!

I love blessing people with gifts.  Which is actually funny, because gifts are not really my love language.  Yes, I am always thankful when someone thinks of me with a special something, but really, I would rather bless them instead.  Because of our nomadic lifestyle, we have friends all over the country and so it can be hard to keep up with the gift giving.  The post office is just not my favorite place to frequent, and I am not good at ordering stuff I cannot see and touch.  There are just too many variables and things that can go wrong.

I have found a solution though, thanks to a friend of mine!  Let the gift giving resume!

Meet Tonya and her husband Dan!  Together they have dreamed big and created a new business called 621 Gifts.  This online shopping and gift giving experience is amazing.  It is a simple idea really.  Pick from a variety of local to the Midwest area products or let them help you pick by choosing their themed boxes, and they will ship these products to anyone you wish. Products range from soup, cookie and muffin mixes, to meat sticks, jams, sauces, and pasta.  Themes include things like For the Men, Sizzlin BBQ and Weekend Breakfast.

They have taste tested each of the products to assure you that they are all the best of the best and keep supplies on hand for a quick turn around.  The items are stylishly arranged in a pretty box and at your loved one's door step pronto!

And how does one pick?  You can view all of the products available, with new ones being added on a regular basis, on the website.  Once you choose how many items you wish to send, from 4-7 items, you can use the drop-down menus to pick your items.  There is even a tutorial if I have confused you! Graciously, Tonya offered to let us try five items of our choice.  I did make her promise not to laugh at ours, because let's just say, if you had received our box you my have thought....ummm, random or what, Michele? ;)  Yes, I promise to send more organized theme to you, my friends!

With 5 pages of items to choose from you are sure to find something perfect for anyone on your gift list.  Be on the lookout for handcrafted items to be added in the future as well and items such as homemade soaps and lotions.

That being said- I did pick winners, if I say so myself.

First up (and eaten for dessert the day the box arrived) were the Sugar and Spice Pretzels and caramel dipping sauce. Best things ever!  Everyone liked it and even our wheat free daughter got in on the action by dipping apples in the caramel.  A box of just five of these might be a good idea!  Just saying.

We also played fair and tried the Buckaroo Brownie Mix, which is Gluten Free, so said daughter did not feel left out.  Yummy as well.  We served them at a get together and even non gluten free friends said they passed the test!

Since fall is coming, I KNOW it is, I also ordered two soup mixes.  I think these are always good gifts to send people who are home bound or sick and even make good housewarming gifts.  We had one a few nights ago, the Veggie Chicken Noodle Soup and the kids loved it.  Next up is the Cheesy Broccoli Soup. 

Last up is the  Cinnamon Streusel Muffin Mix.  Well, not really last, as we ate those last week!  If you have been around Family, Faith and Fridays long enough you already know that this crew loves muffins, so yes, I had to include a box!  They were yummy and Salem asked if we could make more like that.  Next box, I guess!

Why the name 621 gifts?  Tonya and Dan took from Romans 12:6-21 in which spiritual gifts are talked about as well as how we should behave towards one another and then  Matthew 6:21 - For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

In continuation of the gift giving theme, Dan and Tonya have partnered with four organizations to bless.  When you buy from their site, you are able to choose one of the four organizations to bless and a portion from the sales will go to that organization.

AND, to bless my readers, Tonya and Dan are allowing us to give away one- 5 item box to a reader!  Just fill out the rafflecopter below and a winner will be selected next Monday!  Yay!

A BIG thank you, Dan and Tonya, for allowing us to review your fabulous new business venture and for blessing us and a reader with your wonderful products.
