Holiday Giveaway



Holiday Giveaway!!

Ahh…the holidays. Between Thanksgiving and Christmas, I’m always super busy and super strapped for cash: between making Real Food appetizers, side dishes, and treats for large crowds and buying/making thoughtful presents for my loved ones…you know how it goes. πŸ™‚

Anyway, this has been a great year for my website, and so, as a way of saying “THANK YOU! I LOVE YOU! YOU ENCOURAGE ME! YOU INSPIRE ME!” to you all, I am doing a Holiday Giveaway with a few of my blogging friends. The giveaway goes from 11/15 – 12/15, so you can use it just in time for last-minute Christmas gifts (or again, for yourself!).

Here is your chance to try and win a $400 dollar Amazon Gift Card. Yep. You read that right. Now here’s the conundrum: if you win this Amazon Gift Card, what will you do with it? Buy things for others? Buy things for yourself? I won’t judge. πŸ™‚ Feel free to tell me in the comments what you would buy!

Good luck! Happy Holidays!

  1. I would use it to help with Christmas gifts this year. We’re currently expecting to be broke until after the new year because of gifts, materials for gifts/decorations, food, and all the other fun things that come with the holidays. ^_^ lol

  2. I have had my eye on a dehydrator and a high powered blender for some time.

  3. I would buy a table saw to help with all the DIY projects you’ve inspired me to undertake and use the remainder for Christmas gifts.

  4. My first instinct is to say books, books, and more books but I would probably go for something like a Vitamix or Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer.

    • Books are the best. <3

  5. I would spend it on my grandkids!!

  6. Bosch mixer. My old Oster Kitchen Center is limping along and I’m not sure for how much longer…….

  7. I would buy the same thing that you would; the Berkey Water Filter System.

  8. I would buy the same thing that you would; the Berkey Water Filter System.

    • The dream, right?!

  9. I’d use it to buy Christmas presents, boring I know

  10. I most likely would buy many of the things I’m reading about that I need to start making our home healthier. Natural or organic ingredients necessary to make DIY beauty & cleaning products. Or a great food processor or other kitchen appliance I need to make those DIY products. I have a list, it would be fun to win & try to decide.

    • Yes! I remember when that was me a year ago. I bought my first coconut oil, shea butter, cocoa butter, essential oils, roll on bottles, etc. A bit overwhelming, but fun!

  11. I would buy gifts for my baby boy, like a bouncer, exersaucer, and baby monitor.

  12. I would buy a KitchenAid stand mixer!

  13. – a new wash machine

  14. I’d love to spend it on a laptop… I’d get a Toshiba Satellite πŸ˜€

  15. I would spend it on a lot of book on gardening homesteading, tools, and preserving food.

    • I love those types of books! πŸ™‚

  16. I would like to buy Christmas gifts for my grandchildren.

  17. I would start with a large flat screen tv & a new computer!Then I
    would buy lots DVD’s books.

  18. Blankets!

    • As I sit in my furnace-broken home, I concur: yes, blankets would be nice. πŸ™‚

  19. I would buy a kindle fire hdx and a new brother computer printer.

  20. Re:OMG, to spend it on myself on much needed supplement & food to get well, Wow, prize Amazon gc is fab. & splendid. 2 fingers snap. It is tight, fly & off the chain. Thank you for the awesomeness, the contest, and generosity. Dear Santa: I’ve been nice. My X-Mas wish this year is to win this contest. Starving artist here desperately needs the Amazon gc to shop and eat again.

    • Hahaha, thanks for the laugh! πŸ™‚ Good luck!

  21. I would buy a laptop for me and my family πŸ™‚

  22. I would buy a ceiling fan for my bedroom.

  23. I would use the money to get yard stuff we need for our new house. this is our first home so i’d like to get a lounge set.

  24. i’d get a Blendtec or a really nice rebounder! woo! thanks : )

  25. If I wil the DeLonghi Magnifica Super-Automatic Espresso/Coffee Machine will be under my tree πŸ™‚

  26. If I win, I will get a grain grinder. No way I will be able to afford one otherwise. πŸ™‚

    • Ooh! That’s a great idea! Now I’ve got another item for my own wishlist. πŸ™‚

  27. I would buy myself a Vitamix for sure. I quit all caffeine, pop, tea, and coffee on June 26 this year. I told myself after 90 days, I would buy a Vitamix to reward myself with smoothies. The budget doesn’t agree, so I wait…..

    • Awesome! Congrats on quitting those things. A reward system sounds like a good idea for that. Good luck!

  28. I would most likely buy a new graphics card and a new monitor for my PC. I only have a standard definition monitor, and a not so good graphics card, and any money that’s left over, I might buy some camping gear. πŸ™‚

  29. I would buy a fancy coffee maker.

  30. A Berkey, cast iron cookware or a dehydrator. I’m really torn as to which. :/

  33. I would purchase another dehydrator

  34. I would buy a smartphone.

  35. What I dream of is a powerful stand mixer, strong enough to handle bread dough without bogging down.

  36. probably some ceramacor cookware and a french press coffee maker!

  37. I would buy gifts for my kids πŸ™‚

  38. I would use it to buy something nice for my three kids, my husband, and something nice for myself too!
