Welcome to the 2010 Design Mom Holiday Giveaway Week. Today’s giveaway is going to amaze you. You’ll find prizes from Terrain, Custom Toy Portrait, Hello Lucky, MerryMakers and Jo Totes. Take note, Friends: WINNER TAKES ALL. I’m not even kidding. One winner will win everything I describe below. There are so many fun prizes, it’s like a giant early Christmas! If you win, you can share with friends or keep every last item for yourself (I won’t tell a soul, I promise). Take a look. But you might want to sit down first. : )
From Terrain, the picturesque home and garden shop created by the Anthropologie people, the winner will receive all four of the Holiday Blooming Offerings — The Burlapped Hellebore. The Winter Heather. The Tree Bark Orchid. And The Lemon Cypress. Each plant is prettier than the next. They’ll look gorgeous in your home through the holidays and beyond. If you’re new to Terrain, don’t miss the vintage section. It’s my favorite.
From Custom Toy Portrait, the winner will receive two custom paintings. Each painting will be 8″ x 10″ and will feature the beloved toy of your choice. You’ll send photos, and Custom Toy Portraits will send back original works of art. Even the most plastic-y toys will turn into gorgeous pieces worthy of a hallowed place on the nursery wall. Don’t believe me? This is a perfect example of elevated kitsch. You’ll love having a permanent record of Mr. Bunny before he disintegrates or loses all his stuffing.
From Hello Lucky Stationers, the winner will receive a $200 gift certificate. Now is the perfect time to order your holiday photo cards or luxe holiday letterpress cards. How great to get your cards ordered and sent off with plenty of time to spare. Or. Maybe you need sweet birth announcements or a stash of super-cool greeting cards. You could even use the certificate to purchase a gift for someone you love — like personalized stationery or these adorable card kits that make perfect hostess gifts.
From MerryMakers, the winner will receive 15(!) adorable plush toys based on popular picture books: Pete the Cat, Llama, Llama, How Do Dinosaurs Say I Love You?, Otis the Tractor, A Visitor for Bear, Ladybug Girl, The Snowy Day doll, 5 Little Monkeys finger puppets, Ella the Elephant, Bad Kitty, Where is the Green Sheep?, Walter the Farting Dog, Katy Duck, Aliens Love Underpants doll, plus the Dog and Bear set. That’s enough toys for your kids, your favorite nephew, and all the neighbor kids too. I think pairing a MerryMakers doll with a matching book makes a wonderful gift.
Last but not least, the winner will receive three stylish camera bags from Jo Totes. Three different bags in three different styles — Rose, Missy and Scarlet. Jo Totes are ladylike, vintage-inspired bags designed to safely carry a camera and a spare lens while leaving room for things like a phone and wallet. I think Jo Totes would work as a daily handbag, at a photo shoot, or even while traveling. And I love that the padded interior can be custom fitted to organize everything I like to carry. If you win, you could use all three bags and coordinate them with your favorite outfits. Or share the spoils with your friends.
Well now, did I wow you with these prizes totaling over $1000? Want to win it all? Visit Terrain, Custom Toy Portrait, Hello Lucky, MerryMakers and Jo Totes and leave a comment below.
