    • Awesome! I love the Smile design too! πŸ™‚

  1. Cool contest, Chris!
    IF I happened to get the Amazon giftcard (with the blue book-reading under the tree background!) I would share it with my Lansing friends and we’d use the funds to buy supplies and books for our individual and community gardens!

    • Sweet! I love community gardens. That would be an awesome way to use the money! Thanks for visiting, Sarah! πŸ™‚

  2. I honestly enjoy the simple amazon box with “Smile!” by it. $450 should would make me smile. I would probably use the money to buy a 32″ tv I’ve been considering for several months now. Maybe a few smaller things if there’s money left, like books or music.

    • Yes, the Smile design is my favorite too. πŸ™‚ Thanks for visiting, Rae!

  3. I love the simple card design of: Smile!

    I’d buy a Kitchen Aid mixer for my daughter πŸ™‚

    • I want a Kitchen Aid too! Thanks for commenting!

  4. Hoops and Yoyo Thank You Very Much (Animated). I love them, and my girls picked it as their favourite. πŸ™‚
    I’d get a Vitamix, most likely. Or anything on my wish lists. πŸ™‚

    • Glad you got your girls to help you choose. πŸ™‚ A Vitamix would be pretty nice to have! Good Luck!

  5. I like the smile. I would make additions to my Kitchen Aid Attachments, drooling over the pasta maker πŸ˜‰

    • Yes! I want the pasta maker attachment like crazy, and I don’t even own a kitchen Aid yet!

  6. The Aries gift card. New Paleo cookbooks and update kitchen tools would use up most of this I am sure. Great giveaway.

    • I need lots of new stuff in the kitchen too, so I know what you are talking about! Good luck!

  7. My favorite gift card design is the Hoops and Yoyo in Your Face Thank You (Animated) [Hallmark] and I’d buy a KitchenAid stand mixer!

    • I also want the Kitchen Aid mixer! Good luck!

  8. I love the Hoops and Yoyo in Your Face Thank You (Animated) [Hallmark]card! I would buy natural products to use in my homemade products…and maybe a small gift to myself..or a dehydrator! Hmmmm….who knows until I actually win!?

    • I JUST got a dehydrator for Christmas, and I LOVE it! Good luck!

  9. I love the “Congratulations (Christian)” design. I would buy LEGOS for my 5-year-old and a projector to watch DVDs, Netflix and Wii on. Our projector is broken, and we’ve been without any form of movie entertainment. We don’t own any TVs, so the projector was our only method where the whole family can watch.

    • Bummer that your projector is broken! Also, I love that LEGOS are still popular. πŸ™‚ Good luck!

  10. I love the Woofy Birthday (Animated) [American Greeting], dog with the birthday hat on. I’d get my Mom a really nice sewing machine as a a present for her finally finishing Chemo and Radiation this month!

    • I love how you just want to get something for someone else! I am also glad to hear about your mom. πŸ™‚ Good luck!

  11. I like the Earth Day “May your Earth Day be better than the Earth’s”, and I would use the gift card to replace my plastic tupperware with glass and stainless steel!

    • Oh, that’s a great idea! I need new tupperware too. Thanks for the reminder. πŸ™‚ And thanks for visiting!

  12. I like the Happy Brithday “Peeps” Gift card. I would get some summer outdoor toys for my daughter & maybe a chaise lounger for outside so I can watch her play

    • Aww! How sweet to want to use the gift card to help out your daughter! Good luck and thanks for visiting!

  13. I like the Child Art card because it, of course, reminds me of my little darlings. That gift card would be used in much the same way you imagine … the top items on my wish list are a stand mixer, a dehydrator, and a (really good) dutch oven. Yeah, I’m a foodie πŸ™‚

    • Ooh, now you have me wanting a dutch oven! πŸ™‚ Thanks for visiting!

  14. I need a new mixer and I love the old fashion phone design πŸ™‚

    • YES! I want a new mixer too. Good luck and thanks for visiting!

  17. The RED Kitchen Aid mixer of course!!!

    • Woo! Yeah, me too! Good luck!

  18. I would love to buy a vitamix, but I would probably actually buy nutritional supplements for my family.

    • It’s one of those times when you want to buy something fun but you end up getting the practical stuff, right? Good thing it’s a big gift card, maybe you can get a little of both! πŸ™‚ Good luck!

  19. I like the Happy Reading card. I love to read and have a Kindle so would use that great gift card to download some books. In addition, I would buy my hubby and son something special.

    • How sweet that you would buy things for others! Also, it’s addicting how many books you can get on Amazon for the kindle, right? Good luck!

  20. I love the “Love” card. I would spend the money on supplies needed to begin an edible school yard at my child’s school.

    • Whoa! An edible school yard is a brilliant idea! I never heard of that before! Thanks for teaching me something new. Good luck!

  21. I like the select your own photo option for the gift card!
    And, I would scour the website for foods to use with my nutribullet. πŸ™‚

    • Awesome! Nutribullet, eh? That’s a new one for me! I will have to look that one up! Good luck!

  22. If I won this card then I would spend it all on items that are of diy healthy cleaning and cooking

    • Brilliant! It’s addicting to get into DIY, isn’t it?! Good luck!

    • Woo! We have that in common! Good luck!

  23. I like the “a” Amazon design for my winning gift card from Amazon. I buy buy a food processor ,raw vegan cook books, and a spiraller, and other kitchen tools.

    • Essential oils? Other oils like Almond or Jojoba? I haven’t started making my own soap yet, but it’s on my list! Good luck!

  25. I like the year of the horse one and I would buy materials to build a raised bed garden!

    • Yes! I am doing raised beds in my garden this year too! So exciting, right? πŸ™‚ Good luck!

  26. I like the “I Love Mom” written in sand on a beach card design. I would use it toward the purchase of a Vitamix or other small kitchen appliance.

    • Awesome! Gotta love the Vitamix! πŸ™‚ Good luck!

  27. I like the spring flowers in a row. I would get a new kitchen aid and some gluten free cooking supplies.

    • Yep, I really want a kitchen aid too! What kind of cooking supplies do you need for gluten free cooking? Good luck!

  28. I didn’t see the three crosses for easter. I like that one better than the flower pots.

    • Hahaha, so many choices, right?

  29. I like the Earth Day card. I would really like a dehydrator or a Vitamix!

    • I got a dehydrator for Christmas. It is super fun! Jerky and fruit leather so far, but I can’t WAIT to dry herbs this summer! Good luck!

  30. I like the Beach Time gift card, cause I’m hoping to make it to the ocean before too long. I’d buy a combination of things: a good food processor and/or a blender, some loose leaf tea, possibly a Kindle, probably some shoes.

    • Oh yeah! Beach time is coming up, isn’t it? πŸ™‚ I am addicted to loose leaf tea, so I agree with that purchase for sure! Good luck!

  31. I love the Smile! GC design πŸ™‚ I would purchase supplements and supplies for my garden!!

    • Awesome! It is totally the time of year to go crazy on gardening supplies! πŸ™‚ Good luck!

  32. I like the “Sending you birthday wishes” design best. If I won, I would buy a new coffee maker, a water filter, and maybe some bulk bags of coconut flour and other healthy food that’s not cheap.

    • Oh yes, the water filter is a great idea. We need one badly over here too! Good luck!

  33. The majority of the card would be used for my mother’s 54th birthday so the “make a wish” card with the candle is sweet. I want to buy new yellow rose bushes for her garden and I myself have had my eye on a two person sleeping bag πŸ™‚

    • Aww! How very sweet. I think live plants for the yard is the sweetest of gifts for someone because they can enjoy it for years to come. πŸ™‚ Good luck!

  34. I like the smile design, it is just happy. If I got it I would spend some of it on just “fun” stuff. I’d feel like it was my birthday. The other part I would spend on some good deals for household items and/or grocery items.

    • Haha, YES! Treat yourself! I love it! Good luck!

  35. Summertime Pinwheels! What a great gift card to receive. Yes, an IPod for music and supplies to start my first garden in years.

    • Let me warn you now, garden supplies are addicting! Good luck with the giveaway and your first garden! πŸ™‚

  36. I would choose the Chinese New Year design because I was born in the year of the horse! I would use the card to buy Natural Calm and other fun stuff like vit D drops to combat this endless winter.

    • Nice! Those are great ideas for buying. I keep reading all of these comments and coming up with TONS of things I want! AHH! Anyway, good luck! πŸ™‚

  37. I really love the flower pots card. And I’d buy some decorations for the garden/backyard, some things on my Amazon Wish List and whatever my mum would like. πŸ™‚

    • Awesome! What kind of decorations would you get? I want hummingbird feeders and those reflective glass balls EVERYWHERE! πŸ™‚ Good luck!

  38. I want to win this gift card because it will allow me to buy some cool this for my family.

    • Good luck!

  39. I would choose the congratulations card. I would buy a vitamix to make green smoothies and a reference guide for essential oils book!

    • Ah, a Vitamix. That’s the DREAM! Do you have a specific essential oils book in mind? I am about to start researching them heavily, and any tips would be great! Good luck!

  40. I love the smile design for the gift card. I would stock up on cast iron cookware if I won.

  41. I love the new baby design : )
    I would get a BOB jogging stroller & other baby goods for our little one arriving in a few months!

  42. The simple little smile I think is the best. Looks like a lot of others do too…picking what I would get will be a tough decision…there is the Berkey water system, the Kitchen Aid Stand mixer would be awesome…I could go on forever…thank you for the wonderful giveaway…I just found your site, was worth checking out.

    • Thanks! I am glad you found my site! πŸ™‚ The Berkey water system would be an awesome purchase! Good luck!

  43. I really like the “Happy Spring” design. If I won, I would probably buy myself a new swimsuit and then let my dad pick something out to buy for himself since he has helped me out a lot this year. I’d also buy a new blender to share with my family.

  44. I like the earth design with flowers and Green Statement. I’d buy a Vitamix for sure!
