Mother’s Day Giveaway 2012 – Cracker Barrel Gift Basket Full of Goodies for Mom

by Lesley


It’s funny that this is a Mother’s Day post because my dad absolutely LOVES Cracker Barrel. Any birthday, anniversary, or special occasion that he gets to pick where we all go out to eat –  Cracker Barrel it is.

That’s not to say that my mom doesn’t enjoy Cracker Barrel, because she does. She loves their home cooked food. It’s nice for her to get a break from cooking all those meals. And their store just has so many cute things! I know that I really enjoy going there because it always smells wonderful and the food is so delicious.

Cracker Barrel is all about celebrating the moms and grandma’s out there this Mother’s Day! They have events both in store and online. You really need to check them out.

Celebrate Mom In Store Event

  • May 4 – 6
  • Create a custom basket or bundle filled with treasures that make mom feel pampered on her special day. While you’re shopping, enjoy chocolate samples and try some of our hand lotions. Enjoy complimentary gift wrap on any purchase made in our store.

Celebrate Mom Sweepstakes

  • April 26 – May 14
  • Enter for a chance to win a $1,000 Cracker Barrel gift card —one for you and one for your mom (3 winners will be chosen).

Cracker Barrel is blessing one 5 Minutes for Mom reader with this amazing gift basket that has a retail value of over $130!
