Giveaway #1: Holiday Giveaway Week 2011

November 28, 2011

Welcome to the 2011 Design Mom Holiday Giveaway Week. Today’s giveaway is going to amaze you. You’ll find prizes from Balsam Hill, Minted, House & Hold, Planet Gear, and Julian & Co. 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 Balsam Hill, the winner will receive a gorgeous artificial Christmas tree worth $899.00! It’s a 7 1/2 foot Balsam Hill Frasier Fir with Clear Lights. Have you seen one of these before? They look so real! If you’ve ever wanted to be done with the cut trees and the tree stands and the watering, this is the replacement tree you will fall in love with. Balsam Hill offers dozens of different tree styles — blue spruce, silver fir, Rocky Mountain pine — but they say that the Frasier Fir is widely considered the very best Christmas tree species. I can see why!

From Minted, the winner will receive a $250 credit to spend on Holiday Cards. I adore Minted’s cards! They source their designs from fantastic graphic design shops across the country, and all their custom work is professionally type-set — which means they’ll make sure the words you request don’t look wonky. I think Minted has the best collection of designs out there! (Also, have you seen their charming lined envelopes? So happy!) When you place your order from Minted, have high expectations, because they are ready to impress you.

From House & Hold, the winner will recieve a DwellStudio Draper Stripe Throw, worth $150. Plus. This DwellStudio Chinoiserie Pillow, worth $68! Friends, I am already jealous of whoever ends up with these stylish goodies. Everyone knows a stash of throw blankets is the best way to make it through a chilly winter. And that pillow! Wouldn’t that look great on your bed? Or your sofa? House & Hold has a carefully curated collection of amazing home goods. It’s a wonderful place to find a housewarming gift or a handsome new accessory for your mantle.

 

From Planet Gear, the winner will receive a $200 shopping spree. Join Planet Gear (it’s free) and you’ll get access to exclusive deals on all the outdoor and travel gear a girl could want. Need a new ski parka? A sporty watch to time your runs? The perfect weekender bag? Planet Gear will hook you up with the coolest products and the biggest discounts. They post new sales every week. Also, (and this is so great!), through December 15th, Planet Gear is donating a can of food for every new member and facebook fan. Nice!

From Julian & Co., the winner will receive a Cable Charm Bracelet plus a Monogram Insignia, which is the very first custom charm you’ll want to add to the bracelet — a $208 value! Julian & Co. makes custom pieces that become instant heirlooms when they arrive on your doorstep. In fact, everything they make has your loved ones in mind. Confession: if the charm bracelet arrived at my house, I can guarantee it would end up tucked into my own stocking — I don’t think I could give it up. Too pretty! : )

Well now, did I wow you with these prizes totaling almost $2000? Want to win it all? Visit Balsam Hill, Minted, House & Hold, Planet Gear, and Julian & Co. and leave a comment below. You only have 24 hours to enter — tell your friends so they don’t miss out. The winner will be posted tomorrow (Tuesday). Good luck!

Tracy Potter is the lucky winner. Thanks for playing!

That Balsam Hill tree alone is an amazing give-away. My good friend, who has always been adamant about having a “real” tree each year at Christmas, just married a man who is allergic. She needs a tree like this one so she doesn’t feel like she’s making quite such a huge compromise.

59 Lori C. November 28, 2011 at 7:52 am

Wow…what a giveaway! Love it all.

Love from Lori C.

71 marilyn November 28, 2011 at 7:55 am

Ohhh, that tree looks amazing! My husband’s parents just got a new house with high ceilings, but she’s got an allergy that keeps them from being able to get a real tree! That one would definitely help make Christmas extra beautiful and sparkly! I LOVE the pillow and blanket from Dwell, that would be the thing I couldn’t let go of myself, I think! Or the workout shopping spree! Thanks!

72 Rendy November 28, 2011 at 7:57 am

Beautiful, all!
