Order Brownies on your Smart Phone!

Soon, ordering brownies on your smart phone will be just a few clicks away! As the web designer here at Fairytale Brownies, it's been on my 'wish list' for a while to expand the reach of our yummy brownies to the mobile space. So finally this year (2013), Fairytale Brownies has decided to develop a mobile optimized version of brownies.com. You'll be able to browse our gift line and easily place an order for a brownie delivery right to your front door! Or, send brownies gifts to your friends and loved ones, but that goes without saying ;)  With so many people plugged in, it was a no-brainer that we needed to expand our reach to mobile.

129.4 million people own smartphones as of January 2013, with Apple having the majority of the market with 37%. Google holds 52% of the smart phone operating system market while Apple is behind at 37%. Google/Andriod operating systems are in Samsung, HTC, Motorola and LG phones, so combined this equates to more market share than Apple (source):

Brownie Delivery for Mother's Day

It's time to say thank you to those all important women in our lives, mothers! I know my mom is looking forward to her brownie delivery from Fairytale Brownies, but Mother's Day is not only about one's own mother but the other great mothers in our lives. This year I am excited to send a brownie delivery to my boyfriend's mom. Whenever we travel to Minnesota to visit, she always welcomes me into her home and makes me feel like part of the family. I want to show her how much I appreciate all she's done for me and for what a great job she has done raising her son and daughter. 

A gourmet gift from Fairytale Brownies is a perfect way to show your appreciation to moms, especially to those who live far away. You can browse our variety of Mother's Day Gifts at brownies.com. We have three sizes and 12 flavors of fudge brownies to choose from, 3x3" (full-size) 1.5"x3" (snack-size) and 1.5"x1.5" (bite-size) -- in addition to 6 gourmet cookie and 4 sweet and buttery bar flavors. You are sure to...

Happy Anniversary -- Celebrate with Brownie Gifts

Happy Anniversary Brownie GiftsLast week, my husband and I celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary; it's hard to believe it's been 5-years already. Seems like yesterday we were exchanging our vows and getting ready to start life as a married couple. Since we JUST bought a house last month, and we're still in the midst of unpacking, we decided to play our anniversary low key this year. Exchange small gifts, and the traditional celebration dinner.

I didn't hold up my end of the bargain on the small gift thing. My 'small' gift entailed of going to the nursery and buying him a new Citrus tree for the yard as well as a Rosemary plant for the deck. I also sent a Happy Anniversary Fairytale Brownies gift (Happy Anniversary Sprite Dozen) to his work. He is a choco-holic like myself, so he looks forward to the occasional brownie gift in the mail (I've cut down on bringing brownies home!). But we allow ourselves the occasional indulgence of gourmet treats when it's a special occasion.

Thank Wedding Guests With Personalized Photo Gifts

Warmer weather is here, and that means it's wedding season again. The most popular months to get married are June through October, so many brides are preparing for their big day. There is so much to plan, from the dress to details like thank you gifts and wedding favors. I'm at the age where many of my friends are getting married, so I've attended plenty of weddings. I find the weddings I enjoy most are those that focus on family and friends. Small touches like thanking those who've been there for your big day have always been a tradition, but the gifts that stand out to me most are  personalized gifts.

At Fairytale Brownies, we have the perfect way for couples to thank their loved ones in a personal way, with photo gifts. Your photo will be printed directly onto our gift packaging with durable, high-quality inks for a sentimental gift your guests can treasure for years to come. They will cherish the photo and rave about the gourmet brownies, bars, and cookies inside!

Celebrate National Pecan Day with Pecan Brownies, Cookies and Bars!

April 14th is National Pecan Day! Pecans are one of my favorite nuts and are popular for their buttery flavor and soft crunch. When I learned there was a National Day recognizing pecans I decided to learn some more about this delicious nut.

Pecans have a rich history in the United States. It's the only major nut tree that grows naturally in North America. The word pecan is of Native American origin that was used to describe "all nuts requiring a stone to crack.” It's history can be traced back to 16th century where both Washington and Jefferson planted pecan trees. New Orleans became the hub for distributing pecans to other parts of the United States and the rest of the world. Source: ilovepecans.org/history.html.

There are many ways to enjoy pecans, but my favorite is in desserts. Forget the pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving and pass me the pecan! Here at Fairytale Brownies we have three delicious pecan treats. Our pecan brownie, carmel pecan cookie, and  pecan blondie

Send Brownies as a Random Act of Kindness

People are busy with Valentine's Day, but did you know that February 17 is Random Acts of Kindness Day? This is a holiday everyone can get behind. It can be simple random acts like smiling at strangers or holding the door open for others. Other ideas include paying the tab for the person behind you in line, or volunteering your time at a food kitchen. Personally, I think it is a great day to thank those around you or to get back in touch with an old aquaitenance. So what better way to do this but with a gourmet food gift. Surprise someone with a cookie delivery, or send brownies!

Here at Fairytale Brownies we have a variety of different gourmet gifts. I recommend one of our Thank You Gifts or Thinking About You Gifts. A small gesture can go a long way, and people will really apprecite and enjoy it. So remember to incorporate random acts of kindess into your week, and even make it a year round habit. A little kindness can go a long way!  Image credit.

New Photo Brownie Gifts Add a Personal Touch!

If you've received our new Valentine's Day catalog or visited Fairytale Brownies on the web recently, you may have noticed our new Photo Gifts. We started with Photo Tins last fall, and got such great feedback from customers who sent them that we decided to expand the photo option to more brownie gifts this spring. Photo gifts are great for anniversary gifts, birthday gifts, Valentine gifts and anytime you want to send a truly personalized gift of mail order brownies. Ordering a photo gift is super simple. All you have to do is choose a gift, upload a special photo, and your personal brownie or cookie delivery will be on its way!

I love these gifts, and plan to send many boxes and tins of gourmet brownies adorned with pictures to friends and family all over the country. You can even see me and my daughter on this Photo Tin Morsel 24 on our website!
