Get More for your Munchkin this Holiday Season with the Lil’ Tykes Holiday Giveaway!

This giveaway installment is for the tiniest tot in your life, featuring volume one of the animated DVD series Bowlopolis, two Munchkin Brand trainer drinking cups and one Munchkin brand sandwich cutter.


The first volume in a series of 8 total DVDs, Bowlopolis introduces 10-year-old Layne who faces the challenge of rescuing his dad by winning an important bowling game.  He makes plenty of friends along the way who help him try to conquer the powerful villain Kingpin and save the world, his dad, and of course win an awesome trophy. This unique first episode gives kids an entertaining look at a classic American pastime and teaches the importance of family and friends.


Next up for grabs is the Munchkin Brand sandwich cutter.  Munchkin is known for providing parents with a wide variety of items for their babies and small toddlers, ranging from proper safety devices for the home to fun and special products that make having children more fun. This particular item, a one-piece sandwich shaper, cuts any sandwich into four “puzzle pieces” to help interest your child at mealtime.  It is shaped not only to cut the sandwich into small, easy to handle pieces, but it also removes the crust all in one motion!

The plastic is BPA free and the product is easy to use; your child will be excited to eat their sandwich thanks to this fun device!


Finally, to top off this giveaway package, Munchkin has also provided two click-lock, leak-proof trainer cups for children ages 6 months and up.  The cups come in a wide variety of colors, and the ones provided in this giveaway happen to be orange and blue with blue and red caps.  Your lil’ tyke will want to show these bright, stylish cups off to everyone you meet!

Also BPA free and made with silicone, these 8oz cups are the perfect starter set to help your small child learn how to use adult cups.  Your child will love how easy the cups are to use, and you will love having fewer spills to clean up!

Illume Balsam & Cedar Ceramic Candle – Product Review

Ok I’ve been completely obsessed with Illume products ever since my visit to the Red Door Spa. At the Red Door Spa I came across Illume products for the first time and wrote about my love for them HERE.

Recently Illume was having a holiday contest on their Facebook page. Of course I had to participate. Needless to say I won and received a Balsam & Cedar Ceramic Candle. The scent is amazing. It smells like the holidays but at the same time has a really clean scent to it. It’s not overly piney like many pine/holiday scents tend to be. It’s clean, fresh and holidayish and I adore it. Plus I can totally reuse the ceramic jar it came in once this scent runs out. Perfect!


Make sure you like Illume on Facebook and check out their website

Love Giving with Land’s End

I’ve been a Lands End shopper for years. My mom introduced them to me years ago. My mom is originally from Minnesota but is a New Jersey transplant. She knows cold! And so do the folks over at Lands End. Need a waterproof warm winter coat? Call Lands End! Or tweet them for that matter @LandsEnd @LandsEndPR and follow the #LandsEnd conversation.

Which is exactly how I was able to score the amazing chenille throw, candle holder and $50 gift card as pictured above. I’m completely obsessed with this throw. It is soooo comfy I can’t even tell ya. The candle holder is super cute and I cannot wait to spend my gift card. I’ve been eyeing up the LBD’s (Little Black Dress) on their site for a few weeks now.


On Cyber Monday they held the Land’s End 12 Hours of Twitter Event aka #12hrsTwitter. For 12 hours they gave away prizes upon prizes ranging from their adorable holiday collection, to warm coats and more. Say what you didn’t know they carried home goods? Um they totally do. They also carry some treats that sound insanely delectable like their Sea Salt Caramels.


Visit throughout December to view their St. Nick’s Picks. They offer daily deals on great products with exceptional values.


What’s that? You want to win a Land’s End Twitter contest too? Well ’tis the season! On Friday, December 16th Land’s End will be holding another Twitter party. Follow @LandsEndPR, @LandsEnd, @LEprMolly, @LEprMichele, @LEprMariella and @LandsEndPRAdam at #LandsEnd for all the deets!
