Hello dear friends! It’s been awhile since we’ve done a fun giveaway, hasn’t it? With the holidays right around the corner, I know everyone could probably use a bit of extra cash to help with their Christmas shopping, and today I have a whopping $250 CASH PRIZE to give away to one lucky reader! How awesome would that be to get ahead this year and have a good chunk of your shopping done before Thanksgiving even gets here? I know I would LOVE that! I’ve teamed up with some of my fellow bloggers (who all happen to be amazing, by the way!) to bring you this giveaway, and I’m so excited to help someone “deck the halls” and ring those jingle bells early this year! So are you ready to start shopping? Let’s go!
Early Bird Christmas Cash Giveaway!
*** This giveaway has ended and a winner has been contacted. Congratulations to Lisa Frederickson, winner of our prize! Thank you so much to all who participated! ***
To help you get in the shopping mood (as if you really needed any help!), I thought I’d share with you a few of my favorite gift ideas that you could purchase with your $250 smackeroos… Whether you buy them for someone else or yourself!
For someone who can work magic with food and whip up a mean lasagna, I recommend a Le Creuset French oven and a KitchenAid food processor! You cannot beat the quality of Le Creuset dishes in my opinion, and they come in such pretty, fun colors! And a food processor has all kinds of uses and can really speed up prep time, which means getting food in your belly faster! I think these gifts would make any home cook one happy camper!
For the gal (or guy) who would rather make their own furniture than buy it, these gifts would be perfect! This Ryobi tool starter set comes with a circular saw and drill to get you going on those DIY projects in no time! And this paint sprayer from Wagoner is the real deal. It comes with a fine spray nozzle that gives furniture an incredible, flawless finish so quickly and easily. I LOVE mine!
Now that you’re ready to start your holiday shopping spree, I want to introduce you to the lovely ladies who made this giveaway happen!
