Holiday Season Kickoff (and a giveaway!) | Ends 12/16


Hi all! Hope you had a great Thanksgiving. Anybody braved the Black Friday craziness? I'll occasionally go out and pick up a few deals on Black Friday, but this year I stayed at home. Cold weather + rain = me staying inside most of the day in my PJs and eating turkey sandwiches. I did find a few good gifts up for grabs online, so I didn't miss out too much. I'm almost finished decorating the tree. I'm still searching for a star, I think I'll start a quest on Etsy to find the perfect one. At this point I've gotten about half of the gifts done. this year I started early - usually I'm out there on Christmas Eve finishing up most of my shopping. This year I seem to be more excited for the holidays than most years. I've got the Christmas music playing, my wrapping center set up, and I'm already starting my endless holiday baking.

To help kickoff a great holiday season, I'm giving away a $10 Borders gift card to one reader.

To enter you must do one of the following, and leave a comment about it:

Follow my blog via Google Friend Connect
Subscribe via email
Subscribe via reader
Follow me on Twitter

You can find them all up top, under "connect". And you don't have to do just one, do any or all of the above for one entry each!

Extra entries (must do one of the above first)

1 entry - Let me know a book, movie, or cd you'd like to unwrap this year!
1 entry each - Tweet this giveaway (can be done once daily) using the following:
RT @jsoldham Win a $10 gift card to Borders! http://bit.ly/5blNWg #giveaway Ends 12/16
5 entries - Add my button to your site
5 entries - Blog about this giveaway with a link back to this post
1 entry each - Enter any of my other giveaways or leave a comment on any other review or post

Giveaway ends December 16 at 11:59 PM Eastern. Open to US. I'll pick the winner via random.org, and chosen winner will have 72 hours to respond to my email. I'll also announce the winner here.

Congrats to the winner, Coupon Clippin' Mommy!

I received no compensation for this post.
