If I had to pick a favorite holiday, Christmas would be at the top of the list. It’s such a cozy holiday for me; usually it’s spent in pajamas, with lots of hot chocolate. Also, I must admit, I do have a thing for presents. I like the mystery of finding out what is in those sneaky little boxes that have been hiding under the tree for the past few days (yes, my presents are only under the tree for a few days – at most – because the hubby is worried that I’d peek if they were there any longer. He’s totally right). In fact, I love opening presents so much that Christmas is the one day of the year that I’m okay with snow. Yes, that’s right, I’m so happy that I can live in harmony (for one day only) with that horribly cold, slushy white stuff.
But, back to presents… since I love them so much, I thought I’d share the love, and give all y’all the chance to have a little extra something under the tree. These are just little “thought gifts,” but they are things that make me Happy with a capital H and are things I partake in every single day. So, in the spirit of “yay, it’s Christmas!” here are few of my favorite things that I am giving away:
#1 – Tea & Coffee. I must have something to drink while editing all the photos I take, right? I (probably wisely) drink more tea than coffee, but I have a soft spot in my heart for both. So, I’m giving away my favorite loose leaf tea from my favorite tea store, along with a Starbucks gift card. I highly recommend the salted carmel mocha.
#2 – Books. I have a book addiction… I always have a book with me, and, at this moment, I’ve read 117 books this year. I read mostly fiction, and often YA novels, but I will read pretty much anything if it’s good. I toyed with the idea of giving away a much-loved book or two off my shelf, but reading tastes vary so much, that instead, I’ll give the gift of choice in the form of an Amazon giftcard. Order a book or several if, like me, you adodpt used books.
#3 – Photos. A no-brainer. I love printed photos and I love taking photos most of all, so I am giving away a $50 gift card that can be used toward prints or a session fee.
Also, if you’re already a client, here’s a bonus: I am also offering 10% off prints in the proofing gallery until Dec. 31st at midnight CST. Just enter the code “PRESENTS” at checkout and the discount will be automatically applied.
You have up to three chances to win by doing the following*:
The giveaway is over on Friday, Dec. 16th at midnight, and I will randomly choose winners at that time. I will be contacting winners either via email, Facebook, or DM on Twitter (depending on winning entry). Winners will have 48 hours (until Sunday, Dec. 18th at midnight) to respond to claim their present before another winner will be chosen.
*Note that each of the three entries do not have to be for the same present… if you want to be considered for all three (or just two), feel free to mix it up.
And, because no post is complete without photos… a few to get you in the spirit of Christmas!
