***BIrthday - Doodle Buckets Giveaway



If ever you have a hard time choosing a gift for a child or you are unsure what they would like,  the best bet is to go with a gift basket.  Doodle Buckets offers a fabulous variety of birthday gift baskets for children,  along with many other great birthday giftbaskets for women too.  Besides Birthday Gift Baskets,  they also offer a huge selection of just about any type you may need.  This wonderful company has been providing customers with high quality products and excellent customer service since 2002 when they were first established. 




As you may remember I recently introduced you to Doodle Buckets with a review of one of their lovely baby gift baskets.  I encourage you to check out the gift basket review I did for the Bear Necessities Radio Flyer Doodle Bucket.  We enjoyed the Bear Nessessities gift basket so much that we had high expectations for the Happy Birthday Fun & Games Gift Basket and it sure didn't dissapoint but before I begin to tell you about the gift basket I received let me show off a couple of their other birthday themed gift baskets,  or shall I say "Doodle Buckets".



Perfect gift for someone older with a personality.  My mom would especially appreciate the funny theme of this hilariously nice gift basket.  You can purchase this gift basket for only $37.99.



With such a huge selection of gift baskets it didn't surprise me that they even offer a gift basket perfect for those who need sugar free items,  such as my husband because he is a pre-diabetic.  Contains everything you need to put a smile on your face!  You can purchase this gift basket for only $62.99.




Packaged in the cutest little mini Radio Flyer Wagon this gift basket is sure to please!  It makes a perfect gift for any baby and provides a lot of fun too!  You can purchase this gift basket for only $119.99.


For the party Doodle Buckets generously let me select a gift basket that I thought would suit my little man the best so I went to shopping.  Shopping on Doodle Buckets website is so much fun because they have so many neat options and choices.  I figured since it was for his birthday it would only be appropriate to select a birthday gift basket,  so I searched for "birthday gift baskets".  By using the search tool bar it really narrows your results down,  so you don't have to search all over their entire website for what you want.  After careful thought I ended up selecting the Happy Birthday Fun & Games Gift Basket.

The gift basket arrived in perfect condition and came packaged ready to give,  so I didn't have to wrap it - a major plus for me because I hate wrapping gifts.  It was packaged in a very colorful crayon themed box that can be resused to keep small toys in or crayons and markers in.  When it came time to open it up he ripped off the bow and dug into all the goodies including lots of fun stuff that kept him entertained for quite a while.  He loved the selection of toys mixed with goodies and was even kind enough to share some with his other brothers.  Below, you will find a list of everything our gift basket contained and what we thought about each item.



Here's what was inside:

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BALLOON -  This small balloon made a great photo prop and is still inflitated a week later! 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BEAR - Although it wasn't the same bear pictured in the gift basket photo it was just as cute,  actually even cuter!  It held a plush cupcake and made a great decoration at the party. 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BUBBLES - Just the perfect size for one time use,  he reallly enjoyed playing with them while we were at the park.

BIRTHDAY MINI SIPPER CUP WITH STRAW - He loves drinking juice out of his balloon decorated cup.  By using this cup I am able to entice him into drinking his water. 

WHISTLE - What kid doesnt like a whistle!  He went around blowing it like he was a referee! 

ACTIVITY PAD - The activity pad contained 48 pages of nothing but F-U-N!

6 PACK CRAYONS - Of course he used these to draw on the activity pad.

SMILEY FACE STICKERS -   He used these happy stickers to put on his activity book.

MINI BOWLING GAME - This was one of his favorite items in the gift basket.  His older brother helped him set it up and they both had fun taking turns playing with the mini bowling set.

MINI FLYING FRISBEE DISK - Fun little discs that children of any age can enjoy throwing.

SMILEY FACE YOYO - Believe it or not this was his very first yoyo.  His older brother taught him how to do it and he seemed to catch right on!

NEON WOODEN PADDLE BALL - I use to love playing with these as a child but I don't think I enjoyed them as much as my son!  His face lit up with a big bright smile everytime he hit the ball with the paddle! 

TRANSPARENT INTERTWINE BOUNCY BALL - With bright colors and an innovative design,  the boys really enjoyed playing with it.

ADAM'S & BROOKS 4-IN 1 WHIRLY POP - What kid wouldnt like a big sweet bright pop!

FUN DIP CANDY - Remember Fun Dip Candy,  if you do you remember how fun it was to eat.  My son was already very familar with FUN DIP so he already knew what it was as soon as he saw it. 

SWEEDISH FISH SOFT & CHEWY CANDY - I think our entire family each had a couple of these,  how could we resist! 

DAIRY STATE FOODS ANIMAL CRACKERS - The chocolate and vanilla animal crackers came packed in an adorable bus shaped box.  He shared them with his brothers and within minutes they had demolished all of them.

ZESTY WHITE CHEDDAR POPCORN - Even I had to try some of this because I love white cheddar and I must say it was pretty tasty.  My birthday boy didn't care too much for it so my oldest son and I snacked on it for a few days.


BUY IT:  You can purchase the Happy Birthday Fun & Games Gift Basket for only $51.99.

I will definitely use Nutcracker Sweet Gift Baskets again. They arranged to have a really nice basket full of fresh fruit, cheese, crackers, chocolates and more, delivered to my sister college in only a day's notice. He was very surprised to get a call to pick up a "package" on his birthday, 7 hours away from home. He even sent me pictures of all the gift items. Many thanks to nutcracker sweet.
