Happy Birthday Muffins

Have you ever been completely lost as to what to give someone as a gift for their birthday?
Join the club!  Everyone loves picture frames or candles, right?  Right?!  Maybe not...

I have no need to worry about shopping for a clever or unique gift anymore!
I discovered the Happy Birthday Muffin.
It's a fun, totally different gift that is guaranteed to put a smile on the birthday person's face!

How does Jax know how amazing this gift really is?
Last week I received my very own Happy Birthday Muffin!





This wouldn't be a R&W post without a list...
Here are 8 reasons why a Happy Birthday Muffin makes an awesome gift!

1.  Delicious
The double chocolate chip muffin that I ate was so yum!  It was fresh, moist and very chocolaty.
Think brownie but in a surprisingly delicious muffin form!  Ok, stop drooling on the computer...

2.  Spork
It came with its very own bamboo spork specifically designed to chow down on a muffin.
The spork even comes in its own little package with a napkin!

3.  Coaster
The muffin pleasantly sits on a reusable, fun coaster as it's wrapped beautifully in cellophane tied together with a colorful ribbon.
My coaster has quickly become a staple in my cubicle.  Hello new resting spot for my coffee!

4.  Special
The package is designed to make you feel special.
I mean, who shares a muffin?

5.  Magnetic Birthday Card
The gift comes with a birthday card printed on a high quality magnet.  You can personalize this card with any fun message you want!  This is a message the receiver can stick on the fridge and read for life!
Want to laugh?  Check out the clever messages prewritten for you on their website!

6.  All Inclusive
Each order is so easy to place!  The price includes everything, even tax and shipping.
Did I mention the order process is real user friendly??  Trust me.  I'm tech challenged!

7.  Box
The muffin is delivered in a box that's meant to be saved.  It's a great keepsake.
Mine has been stuffed with knick knacks and put on display!

8.  Unique
I mean, who would ever expect a high class muffin for their birthday?
Put the boring, overplayed fruit creation down!!

Here's the fun part!!!
The lovely people at Happy Birthday Muffin agreed to give away a free gift for you to send to anyone your heart desires!  Talk about an easy out on buying a birthday gift!

The winner will receive a free muffin to send to their birthday person of choice.
It comes with the delicious muffin, a keepsake box, a reusable coaster, a fun spork, and the magnetic birthday card that will be saved for life.


The winner will be announced next Monday, May 21.

  3. I love the idea of including a magnet message, Jax and this was perfect timing on their part to send this to you. Devin's birthday is around the corner and this is perfect for him! (I won't enter the contest, I'll buy it all legit and stuff)

    Now, I need to come up with a good message for the magnet...

  14. Even if the Cat is Canadian he followed and retweeted as usual at your sea. The least he can do after the whole flea on the knee..LOL

    Really fancy I will say too, the magnet is a great idea which one could surely make a little rhyme come due.

    And who doesn't like to feel special as well, even though the cat thinks he is already he could always use more...haha

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Thanks for the entries! Well, since you're in Canada, if you win you could always send it to one of your bloggy friends!! LOL

      I love the magnent idea as well! Such a cute way to remember the card/gift for a while.

      The cat needs to feel more special? That's why I wanted to give him a glamover!!! hahahaha

      Delete
    2. Yes a bloggy friend could get it in the end..haha..maybe as payback for the slurp with Petsy..hahahahaha

      Not going to let that go, the cat will have to squash Jax flat in round two at his show..haha

      Delete
    3. LOL Yes, that double chocolate chip muffin would so give her tastebuds back!!!! Yum :)

      Hmph! You can't squash me flat!! I'm too fast. lol

  26. Was this from a secret admirer or did you win it?.I never get any admirers but i did get my bum slapped once, but she was like forty five and i think it was a man in a dress.But it still counts.
    I wonder the disaster if a guy walked in to their shop and asked the female baker can he see photos of her muffin. He might get a slap rather than a price list.
    Im glad you got something though, it did look nice and i don't even like chocolate.

    3. Yeah I didn't want to say anything but the cat spied some services going on too. What, he'll never tell.
