This is it, Friends. The finale event for Holiday Giveaway Week 2011. Once again, you’ll find it’s filled with terrific goodies. There are prizes from Xbox Kinect, Garnet Hill, OneCanoeTwo Letterpress, Seven Smooches, Plum Street Prints and ONA Camera Bags. And yes, once again: WINNER TAKES ALL. One winner will win everything I describe below. I’m sure you will adore today’s prizes. Here they are:

From ONA Camera Bags, the winner will receive a Venice Shoulder Bag worth $329! ONA makes gorgeous camera bags, in fine materials like full-grain leather. The Venice is designed to hold a DSLR camera, up to 3 lenses, and small personal items. There’s even a compartment with room for an iPad, wallet and sunglasses! Probably my favorite feature, is that the interior is fully-customizable with removable dividers — so you can make the bag function exactly the way you want it to. I think it’s so handsome and stylish, I’d want to carry it with or without a camera! One more thing, to get access to special deals, you can stay connected to ONA via Facebook and Twitter.

From Garnet Hill, the winner will receive a $200 gift certificate! Browsing Garnet Hill’s catalog is one of the best ways to spend an afternoon. They consistently carry a well-curated collection of clothes, shoes and accessories — even super cute items for kids! Right this minute, I’m sitting near our charming assortment of Christmas stockings, half of which are from Garnet Hill. I’m such a fan! Throughout December, Garnet Hill is featuring “Holiday Give Guides” full of really clever and unusual gift ideas for every one on your list — like sparkle-y nightlights and feather wreaths. Such a great resource!

From OneCanoeTwo Letterpress, the winner will receive $200 in gift cards! OneCanoeTwo is one of the coolest letterpress shops around. I’m in love with their State Prints and their alphabet coasters, but frankly, everything in their shop is off-the-charts charming. My very favorite item might be the Recipe Card Binder — it would make such a good gift for the foodies in your life! To make things more fun, instead of sending 1 big gift card, OneCanoeTwo will send the winner 4 $50 gift cards, so you can keep one for yourself and give the others as gifts, if you like. However you choose to spend the gift cards, checking out their shop is sure to bring a smile.

From Seven Smooches, the winner will receive a $200 credit for anything in their adorable shop! Seven Smooches is a boutique you will want to bookmark. They understand there is beauty in both old and new. Every piece they make is one of a kind! Not even kidding. They use 100% recycled materials, like wool sweaters, vintage feedsacks and cotton oxfords. And as high-end as the pieces look and feel, you will be happy to know they are completely machine washable! Dibs on a pair of Barnaby Boots, a Pieced Blanket, and the Mother Goose Spectacles.

From Plum Street Prints, the winner will receive a $200 gift certificate! Plum Street Prints recently launched a custom iPhone case service. They offer dozens of hip, trendy prints on hard cases that you can customize with your name or initials or whatever you like. There are so many great options to choose from, and take note, these are not stickers, they are fully printed cases! Here’s more good news: From now through December 9th, Plum Street Prints is offering free shipping on all domestic orders (the discount is automatically applied at checkout). Nice!

Last but not least, from Xbox Kinect, the winner will receive a 4GB Xbox 360 Console with Kinect worth $299! This is at the top of everyone’s wishlists this year — little kids, big kids and grown ups too. Kinect is awesome! In case you’ve never heard of it, it’s the gaming system where YOU are the controller. The Kinect box can sense your movements, so you can join in hands free. My kids tried it out here and fell in love immediately. The system also comes with wifi built in, so it’s ready to stream movies, download games and even access Twitter. So cool!

I hope you love the prizes from Day number five, totaling almost $1500! Want to win it all? Please visit Xbox Kinect, Garnet Hill, OneCanoeTwo Letterpress, Seven Smooches, Plum Street Prints and ONA Camera Bags and leave a comment below. Something new: For this final giveaway, instead of 24 hours, this one is open through the weekend (one entry per person, please). Be sure to tell your friends so they don’t miss out. The winner will be posted on Monday. Good luck!
