favourite things stocking giveaway

stocking 3

As I mentioned earlier this week, we have someone important coming back to our house this month, and it’s not Santa!!  Craig is FINALLY coming home after a long, long, long, long time away, and I am so excited, I wanted to share a bit of our happiness with you.

My favourite part of Christmas morning has always been the stockings (and Jesus of course!) so I figured that would be a great theme for my first giveaway.  Inspired by Oprah’s favourite things, I picked (select) items that are on my makes-Jen-grin-and-be-happy list and I hope that you’ll enjoy them too.  The best part is, what you see below isn’t the last of it; I’m going to pick up other small things here and there over the next week and a half and then I’ll package it up in the mail for the winner. 

Let’s get to it!

Here’s everything you’ll be getting in it so far:

stocking 1

-a handsome stocking
-Wherthers Chocolates (the crunchy kind)
-2 candles (1 mulled cider & 1 hazelnut creme)
-silicone spatula
-chocolate face mask
-handmade coffee cozy (winner can pick above cozy or a pink/brown combo)
-PLUS $40 Groupon to The Body Shop

Here’s another shot of that stocking.  Isn’t it gorgeous?  It’s a dark grey wool blend fabric with silver branches stitched on.

Hello! I read your blog daily at work...I'm not sure how to become a follower- or I would! I am thinking of starting my own blog, but haven't found the time. My favotite part of Christmas is buying presents for my kids & seeing their faces light up when Santa comes. I also appreciate the Christian aspects of the holiday- but there is something so majical about waking up on Christmas morning. There is such a small window of time before the kids grow up, I try and relish every moment of it. Enjoy your first Christmas with a little one! Thanks for the chance to win- the stocking is beautiful!

Ooo...what a great giveaway!! Did you make those coffee cozies?? I've been dying for one - I think they are the cutest things.

My favorite part of Christmas is watching movies with my family. We have our favorites that we watch every year. We eat some of the same fun foods like Chex Mix and Pepsi and watch some of the movies at the same time each year. I also love the stockings too. They are my favorite part of presents!
