Hump Day Giveaway: Valentine's Edition

2/08/2012




Remember when I told you about Bummer Baskets? Well, the Brooklyn-based company is offering up a Valentine's Day Bummer Basket just in time for February 14th. Here's what the company has to say about the holiday everyone loves to hate:


Valentine's Day is a beautiful holiday... for hand-holding, Marvin Gaye-listening couples. For the rest of us, it can be a nauseating symbol of love lost, forgotten, or discarded. It can be a reminder that we’re alone, or a day to celebrate that fact - so uncork a bottle of red and break a few (chocolate) hearts.

The basket includes:
  • Bummer Valentine's card (with customizable, hand-written note)
  • Bummer Valentine's Oversized Wineglass Set, or Bummer Barware of your choosing
  • 3 broken heart chocolates, hand-made in NYC by the Bummer team with highest quality milk and white chocolate
  • 1 pair of "eat-out-of-the-carton" oversized chopsticks
  • Hey-U Black Puffy Heart 
You know the drill: become a follower of The Short and the Sweet of It, visit Bummer Baskets and leave a comment below. Extra entires for mentioning the giveaway on Facebook and Twitter and liking Bummer Baskets on Facebook or following them on Twitter.

I would just have to make sure my husb doesn't take that glass with him when he gets a massage. He asked for a geisha for V-day (and every other holiday).

I've been a follower of your blog for quite some time and love this giveaway soooo much; especially since I agree with what you wrote about Vday being a nauseating symbol of love lost, forgotten or even discarded. :) YES! ;)
