Hot Mom’s Day Deals

A Few of Mom’s Favorite Things


The merry month of May has arrived, and we all know what that means: Mother’s Day is coming. That means that it’s time to plan the perfect present for the perfect woman. Fret not! April showers are over, and now Hot Box Cookies is prepared to help you shower your mom with love. This year, you’ll have a pair of gifts that will make her regret giving birth to you a little less.

Flowers & Cookies


We all know that the traditional Mother’s Day gift duo is flowers and chocolates. Not surprisingly, we favor giving flowers and cookies. Our gift delivery service will allow you to send your mom a box of fresh-baked cookies, complete with a bow and card that expresses your adoration. Or, you can deliver the beautiful warm box to her yourself–because the greatest gift of all will always be you, right? We know she’ll love you no matter what (hopefully)–but it’s always nice to make mom feel especially appreciated with a premium treat made with locally-sourced ingredients, that’s baked with motherly care.

But what about the flowers? She needs something pretty to look at while she’s enjoying her scrumptious cookies! This year, we took the initiative to help you acquire those May blossoms at an a-MAY-zing discount. Do you live in St. Louis or Lawrence? If you do, you’re in luck, because we have some flowery friends in those cities!

St. Louis


If you’re looking for flowers in St. Louis, purchase your Mother’s Day bouquet from Botanicals Design Studio. When you order cookies from Hot Box, you’ll be able to use the promo code FLOWERMOM to receive 10% off on any order from this charming flower shop on S. Grand Avenue.

Lawrence


If you’re purchasing blooms in Lawrence, order from our friends at Englewood Florist. At checkout, use the promo code HOTBOX519 to collect 10% off any $50+ order. Local delivery only!

With cookies in one hand and a beautiful floral arrangement in the other, your mom will be blushing with pride that her progeny succeeded in making Mother’s Day so delicious and delightful. And don’t forget that she needs the perfect beverage to wash down those cookies! We’re rolling out our new lactose-free milk! Your mom was always there for you with cookies and milk. Now be there for her with a milk option that is both cow-friendly and tummy-friendly. When cows win and your mom’s tummy wins, we all win.

We’ve Got Big Luv for Admin Pros

Admin Pro Day!


Hot Box Cookies celebrates all kinds of professionals throughout the year by providing a product and service that suits everyone’s gifting needs. Even in the serious corporate world, who doesn’t love taking a little break with cookies? Whether you’re gifting a beautiful box of our warm cookies to a client, boss, or employee, you’ll be happy that you made Hot Box Cookies part of your professional life. Made with all-natural, premium, locally-sourced ingredients, gifting our cookies to someone says that you care about both deliciousness and quality.

While we encourage gifting our cookies to anyone and everyone, April 24th is dedicated to some very special people: Administrative Professionals. That’s right, National Admin Pro Day is on Wednesday. If you have an admin pro in your life, we’re giving you a chance to treat them right with free delivery on your order. They coordinate your calendars, your office supply orders, and your client relationships. So coordinate a delivery of fresh-baked cookies for that fresh employee. Use the code ADMINLUV and your cookies will come to your office with zero delivery fee. Here are some ways you can reward them with decadence for their excellence.

Order a dozen…


…of their favorite flavor from our menu. If you want to surprise them, you’ll have to be stealthy in how you ascertain what their favorite flavor is. Try slipping the question into casual conversation. Example: “I need you to cancel my Friday meeting, and tell me what your favorite Hot Box Cookies flavor is.” Very sly.

Order a cookie cake…


…with their name on it! Their eyes might tear up when they see “Thank you, Francis!” on a cookie cake you ordered to honor them!

Order a couple dozen


warm cookies for the office so everyone can celebrate, but make sure to order just one bottle of milk designated for that super duper Admin Pro. They’ll surely feel like Hot Box royalty with their refreshing bottle of milk, while the others in your group are forced to settle for water to wash down their delicious treats. At the end of the day, though, everyone wins on Admin Pro Day.

While you’re thinking about cookies in the workplace, why not sign up for a Corporate Gifting account? Do business deliciously! You might be amazed at the difference it makes.

Hot Box Cookies is for Lovers (and Haters)

We love Valentine’s Day because it’s the biggest day of the year to share all the love we hold inside our hearts, and inside our cookies. Call us hopeless romantics, but we think that our cookies have just the right ingredients to sweeten the mood between you and your special someone. Wait, you don’t have a special someone? You hate Valentine’s Day? That’s fine by us; we’re here to fill everyone’s day with love, no matter your relationship status. You can be a Valentine’s Day Hater, just love the fact that we’re offering free delivery on preorders and some of these other fun promos. Here are some ways you can get your fill of Hot Box this February 14th.

A Heart to Heart


This Valentine’s Day, we’re showing extra love to our much-adored flavor, Red Velvet. We’re crafting decadent, heart-shaped Red Velvet Cookie Cakes that are the perfect aesthetic and size to present to your special Valentine. This level of beautiful deliciousness comes from the bottom of our hearts.

Free Delivery on Preorders


Maybe you’re opting to eat dessert at home on Valentine’s Day with your sweetheart–so romantic! Just like planning ahead is important when it comes to bringing…supplies…it’s important when it comes to buying cookies. We want you to plan ahead by preordering your cookies between 2/7 and 2/13, with the Promo code BEMINE9. Your great planning skills will earn you free delivery on the big day, and maybe more. Spontaneity is romantic–but planning can be romantic, too.

Dessert Date


If you’re planning to dine out on Valentine’s Day, we hope you have dinner reservations. The good thing is, you won’t need reservations for dessert. After a romantic dinner, sweep your date off his or her feet by bringing them to Hot Box Cookies for some pheromone-releasing treats. You can try going Lady & the Tramp style with a cookie, but we have a feeling it will end up a bit messy.

A Gift Pack to Remember


If you’d rather stick with one of our deals, such as 6 cookies for $8, be sure to include some Red Velvets! They’re redder than the reddest rose, and much more satisfying to eat. If you’re feeling fancy, we’ll package your goodies with a red ribbon, and finish off the spectacle with a romantic balloon. This kind of gift would make a girl more excited than an engagement ring. Well, maybe not. But if an engagement does happen, remember, we cater weddings!

National Peanut Butter Day

You Butter Believe We’re Crushing National Peanut Butter Day


We love all of our cookie flavors, but January 24th is a day we must set aside to celebrate a very special flavor: peanut butter. That’s right, it’s National Peanut Butter Day. Maybe you want to acknowledge the date by eating peanut butter straight from the jar, maybe you’re packing a PB&J sandwich for lunch, maybe you’re whipping up a spicy Thai peanut sauce. But we personally see no better use of this creamy staple than for our soft, warm peanut butter cookies. And to show our love for peanut butter, we’re stepping our game up on this momentous occasion. We’re adding Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups to our amazing peanut butter cookies, for this day only! Get 6 of these delicious cookies for only $9. We’re also coming at you with FREE delivery today; use the promocode PBLOVE, and celebrate National Peanut Butter Day the best way.

via GIPHY

We love this nut (legume) butter so much, we’ve even dedicated it to three of our twelve amazing cookie flavors. Peanut butter aficionados can enjoy this tasty treat as a just plain ol’ Peanut Butter, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip, or Peanut Butter Reese’s Pieces. Now, we all know your mouth will probably need a bit of a wash after all of that. So, be sure to snag a pint of ice cream or an ice cold milk to cleanse your palate.

Here’s a little history about peanut butter that will excite our St. Louis fans: An early version of the spread was specially introduced at a concession stand at the 1904 Universal Exposition in St. Louis! It took several people to bring peanut butter to the state we know and love today, but the credit for perfecting it goes to Joseph Rosefield in 1922. He earned a patent for finding a way to keep peanut oil from separating from the peanut solids, and then yummy jars of peanut butter started hitting the market! Thanks, Joe!

via GIPHY

And to our customers who suffer from peanut allergies: we’re sorry. Maybe in your next life, you’ll be able to indulge in one of humankind’s tastiest creations. In the meantime, you’ll still be able to enjoy the free delivery. That promocode is peanut free.

Feast or Finals. Why Choose?


It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Oh wait, it’s finals week. Not so wonderful. But don’t stress any more than you have to. We have 5 reasons why Hot Box Cookies will help you get through finals–just try not to smudge your notes too much with the gooey goodness.

Free Delivery


  1. First and foremost: FREE delivery. We know the struggles of finals week, so to help you struggle a little less, we’ll chauffeur your fresh-baked cookies to you for no charge. Simply order with promo code: FINALS, valid 12/9-12/11.

A Done Deal


  1. Our cookie deals can help make you the most popular roommate, suitemate, floormate, or matemate. They’re available in boxes of 6, 12, 18, 24 & 36. You could be the talk of the campus. You could change your whole life by providing your friends and frienemies with cookies galore.

Let Us Slide Into Your Inbox


  1. College doesn’t come for free, but you can get a free cookie or two if you play your cards right. Sign up for our newsletter and get a cookie on us. And, take advantage of our December promotion and buy 6 cookies to get 1 free.

Inspired Learning


  1. The usual suspects just don’t cut it. When it comes to finals snacking, you could tear into that bag of chips or rip into that candy bar–but where’s the inspiration? Imagine yourself chomping on some flimsy, stale potato chips. Now imagine yourself sensuously biting into a soft, warm cookie. Which is more satisfying? No need to answer.

Fueled By Flavor


  1. Our flavors will fuel you. Eat an oatmeal raisin cookie for some fiber so you can kick some finals’ butts. Eat a peanut butter cookie for some powerful protein. Eat any of our chocolatey cookies to release endorphins in the brain, reducing stress and pain. Sure, cookies aren’t meant to be healthy per se, but they have some serious finals-busting superpowers.
