In Honor of My Mom – A Giveaway


Ever since I was little, my mom has always loved the month of December. She would go crazy decorating the house, bake a million cookies, and listen to so many Christmas songs! (Seriously! – All of them!) So when Justin and I told her about a deal to go to an extremely Christmasy place for her birthday, she was all over it. (See picture above.)

In honor of my mom, her favorite month, and all that she has done for me, I have put together a little giveaway featuring a few of her favorite things.

8 winners will receive…

– 1 Klean Kolor Nail Polish (There are 12 colors including every color of the rainbow!)
– Skintimate Shave Gel in Raspberry Rain Scent (It smells wonderful!)
– Celestial Herbal Tea
– Sweet 'N Low Sample

And 2 (of the 8) winners will receive a 4 pack of Schick Quattro shavers!

So how do you enter this awesome giveaway? Start by checking out the rafflecopter below. Through this weekend you can get some additional entries as you guess where we went for my mom's birthday (or until I share on the blog). You have a whole month to enter (because Christmas and New Years are thrown in) and tons of ways to receive multiple entries a day, so get started!

      Oops...I realized I made a mistake in my original recommendation...it was Chocolate Peanut BUTTER cups (Reese's Peanut Butter Cups style) not chocolate covered peanuts bars that I make. I got the recipe for the homemade Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups from Martha Stuart's recipes.

      Delete
    4. These sounds delicious -- wish I had some right now.

      Delete
    5. CONNIE = Rose

      I'm thinking about making my recipe (I claim it as mine now, Martha Stuart, since I tweaked it slightly :} ) right now....yum!

  7. i recommend just bonding with your family for FREE. As my MIL has stage 4 colon cancer it reminds me of how precious life is but also how short it is.

      I never realized how much Amazon had to offer until last year when my daughter wanted a Teeter for her back. Amazon GC's rock! Great recommendation, Julie!

    1. Actually it was somewhere she wanted to go, but that would be a fun Christmas/birthday surprise! :)

  19. Our family has a tradition of watching the movie "A Christmas Story" and we make meatloaf, mashed potatoes, and boiled red cabbage just like in the movie. We eat dinner, watch the movie, and then play games/cards. We've always enjoyed it! :)

    ReplyDelete

    1. How fun! My in-laws watch The Christmas Story every year as well. (They don't make the dinner though. Very creative idea!)

    I recommend starting your own family tradition and if you already have one, start another. I learned accidentally that my family enjoys and remembers those times the most during the holidays. One of the traditions our family shares is opening one small gift Christmas Eve, then the rest of the gifts on Christmas Day. My family loves this because it prolongs Christmas :)

  27. I like to read the book the Christmas Box by Richard Evans with my son every year.

  29. It looks like New York. My family visited there for the holidays one year and it was magical. We stayed through New Years. I would recommend it.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I always make special gifts for each family member. Some years I've made ornaments, as my nieces and nephews grew I would show them how to make something special that they could keep or give away. This year I made Colon Cancer awareness earrings for the girls/women and keychain fobs for the boys/men. These were in honor of my mom's recent diagnosis and my Aunt's recent death.

    I love spending time with my loved ones.

  36. For someone close to you, I say a thoughtful, well thought out gift is the best. But.... for those family members and friends who you are not VERY close to, a gift card is the way to go.

      I agree, Anita. I love seeing their eyes light up when they receive a gift that they know took time and effort in selecting or making that is just perfect for them!

  37. I suggest getting someone a box of chocolates, slippers, and a book of interest. Its a universal gift that everyone enjoys getting. A coffee table book that is visually appealing. Something everyone usually appreciates but doesnt buy for themselves.

  41. The best cookies I have ever eaten in my entire life are Dark Chocolate Stars from Trader Joe's!!! But they are seasonal, so you'll have to wait until next year (unless you want to buy them from Amazon, where you'll pay $16 for a $5 box of cookies, which I did because they are just that good)!

    I recommend singing Christmas carols in the car with your family....such fun and funny too! We laugh sometimes at how the songs turn out :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. During the holiday season and beginning a new year I find that I can't be in prayer enough for my children, myself, my family, this world, etc. I recommend that for everyone's serenity as well.

    I recommend asking the children's input on decorating, food or anything else related to the holidays. That way they feel a part of everything. My children would show a lot of pride in their work and like to point out to others how they helped :)

  49. I'm guessing you went to her favorite place
