Celebrate: Bosses’ Day!

Bosses' Day | Gourmet Cookies | Corporate Gifts

Bosses' Day | Gourmet Cookies | Corporate Gifts

Celebrated on October 16th, Bosses’ Day is a great excuse to say “Thank You” to your hard-working boss and put in a few good words for yourself.  Giving a box of gourmet cookies or a gourmet gift basket is a perfect way to not only show appreciation for your boss, but also your dedication to the company.

Who knows, you might even get you a promotion!  But before we make too many promises, let’s find out how this holiday came to be…

According to Wikipedia:  Patricia Bays Haroski, working as a secretary for State Farm Insurance Company in Deerfield, Illinois, had forgotten her boss’ birthday (who also happened to be her father) and the date of his birthday was October 16th.  To make it up to him, and perhaps to aid her memory in remembering her father’s future birthdays, Patricia registered a “National Bosses’ Day” with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in 1958.  Four years later in 1962, Illinois Governor Otto Kerner backed Haroski’s registration and officially proclaimed the day.  It has been more recently celebrated as an international holiday as well.

Sending gourmet cookies is always the perfect gift for all occasions, but especially to show appreciation.  Have gourmet cookies sent via cookie delivery to your boss’s office.  Let them come to you, with crumbs sprinkled around their mouths, expressing complete and utter appreciation for, ahem, you.

The Perfect Wedding Favor

Wedding Favors| Gourmet Cookies | Wedding Gift Basket

Gourmet Cookies | Wedding Favors | Wedding Gift Basket

Though every season of the year is the perfect time to have a wedding, since it is fall, we might as well discuss its merits as a lovely season to get hitched in.

Perhaps the allure is simply because its not too hot nor too cold (at the risk of sounding a bit too Goldilocks and the Three Bears), the leaves are changing, the air is getting crisper, and there seems to be a special sort of “fall” smell in the air. This particularly beautiful time of year creates a picturesque backdrop for your special day.

Now that conditions are perfect, all you need to do is add: invitations, flowers, music, tables + chairs, color scheme, food, the dress (of course), oh, and wedding favors, just to name a few. All of which have to be, well, perfect.

We all know from either experience, or via watching those Bridezilla TV episodes, that wedding planning is or can be fun, yet highly exhausting. The task of creating that perfect day for you, your groom and friends and family can certainly put a strain on the planner and loved ones as well.

At Heidi’s Heavenly Cookies, we would like to make your special day just a little easier by presenting The Perfect Wedding Favor.

Customizable to your wedding colors, style, and tastes, our gourmet cookies, homemade English toffee, and wedding gift baskets are sure to impress your guests and their taste buds. Visit our site to find out more on how to customize your perfect wedding favor or Call Toll-Free 1-877 Heidi’s Cookies (1.877.434.3472) and have them sent via cookie delivery straight to your doorstep.

May your wedding be filled with love, joy, happiness, and lots and lots of Heidi’s Heavenly Cookies.

Match yourself to your cookie personality description below:


Toffee Chocolate Chip

Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookie

Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookie

You are passionate. You have a love for the rich, buttery, chocolaty, flavorful things in life. Simplicity is great, but high-quality is what you demand. You demand only the best quality in fabrics for your clothing, towels and sheets. You have a small group of close friends that share your same tastes and you love to gush about the latest in “important” news. You are fun-loving and passionate about the things you do. If you see a need in our community or otherwise, you become involved in helping to make a difference. You have high expectations for yourself and those around it and it shows.

Chocolate Eclipse

You are a go-getter and succeed beyond expectations. People look up to you. You are a breath of fresh air and are known for your honest opinions and advice. As a person who fits the mold of a good person—you are very busy, but still find time to help someone in need. Family and friends would describe you as being smart, intellectual, fun, and meticulous. Though you are also thoughtful and caring, you have a no-nonsense attitude about you and “get the job done.” Step aside everyone—you take life by the horns.

Oatmeal Raisin

Oatmeal Raisin Cookie

Oatmeal Raisin Cookie

You are a natural. Your idea of relaxation has everything to do with being outside in a beautiful landscape—curled up in a shady hammock with a great read (a popular title, but not trendy), hiking with friends, or pruning your yard and garden. You appreciate simplicity and beauty. Your life is holistic. You follow the mantra that says things are best when made from scratch. You practice this in the kitchen with the meals you prepare and also in your handmade gifts. You would rather spend an evening with a few close friends and family than have large and rambunctious get-together. You are admired by your family and friends as someone who is confident, serene, and a natural beauty.

Chocolate Mint Eclipse

You are cool. It is vital to you to stay up to date with all the latest in fashion, technology, media, etc. Celebrity magazines would feature you as being sophisticated, chic, sharp-witted, fashionable, and friendly. You are full of energy and love to try new things. In a popularity contest, you would win—not just because you’re never a bore but because you know how to “hang” with the goths, the cheerleaders, the jocks, the band geeks, and the academics all in one sitting. Your outgoing personality and wining smile makes you that much closer to buying that coveted new handbag. May the “coolness” continue.

Chocolate Chip

You are loyal and dependable. Sensibility is hard to find these days, but you have it in spades. Your family and friends are important to you and you try to keep good connections with them and enjoy spending quality time with them. You are the glue. Loved ones seek your help and guidance regularly and you are happy to be needed. Keeping family and friends content in turn helps you to be the same. You are a golden friend to all—now, if only they’d pay you back for all your help in gold!

Rocky Road Eclipse

Rocky Road Eclipse Cookie

Rocky Road Eclipse Cookie

You are a thrill seeker. You enjoy taking risks and find ways to make everyday living an adventure—traveling, running marathons, white-water rafting, spontaneous road trips, or simply finding a new restaurant and trying the alligator soup. You never do anything to just be “one of the crowd.” Many of your friends like you because you are funny, smart, witty and young at heart. Spending time with other people is something you love to do, but don’t mind spending time alone either. You are independent and try to make the most of your life with the most adventure possible.

Chocolate Raspberry Eclipse

Chocolate Raspberry Eclipse Cookie

You are an intellectual with flair. Reading a good book or working on a new hobby sounds better to you than going to the club on a Friday night. Admirable qualities— thoughtfulness, a calming presence, a positive outlook, class, and, of course, intelligence (you don’t read all those books for nothing!). The little things in life are the things you appreciate most: the sunset and sunrise, perfect design, well-made films, and flavor-rich food. You don’t let anything stand in the way of having those little luxuries that you so enjoy.

Macaroon Dipped in Chocolate

Coconut Macaroon Dipped In Chocolate Cookie

You are a kid at heart. Dippin’ dots, dipped cones, caramel-dipped apples, dipped—anything. You enjoy mixing and matching, exciting activities, and pairing the new with the old. You can find a million ways to dress up the same t-shirt and jeans. You love to accessorize. You are a multi-tasker. A perfect day for you would be riding a beach cruiser bicycle along the shore and eating something sweet at the same time with only the slightest bit of wind to tousle your hair. If life were a playground, you would definitely be picked first!
