2011 Holiday Gift Guide {Must Haves and Two Giveaways}

I know what you're thinking. Holiday Gift Guide? Lady, are you crazy? It's November!

That's exactly my point though. It's NOVEMBER! One month away from the Holidays. Whatever Holidays you are celebrating, I'm sure you're looking for some gift ideas.

This month, I will be featuring some fabulous products that I think will be a hit with  your loved ones. Yes, there will be some giveaways too! Stay tuned and I hope you enjoy the products I'll be sharing with you this month!

One of the reasons I'm including this Holiday Gift Guide so early is because I'd like to get the giveaway prizes out to winners before the Holidays!


To kick start our 2011 Holiday Gift Guide, I'd like to introduce you to Chunky Bling!
Cute accessories that you can mix and match on  your own to create a unique look that bests suits you = pretty good in my books!  We all have women on our lists who would love a Swarovski ring or a fabulous watch to wear to the many dinners, parties, and gatherings they'll be attending this season.

Chunky Bling is giving my readers a coupon code!
Coupon Code
(CHRIS186) that you readers can use to get any watch set for just $24.95 (this is a really good deal)! This coupon will be good through Nov 21, 2011.

Not only that, but they're also giving one of my readers a Swarovski ring! Enter the giveaway here! Head over to fill out the rafflecopter for on my original post to enter the giveaway!
Another item that would be a surefire winner this Holiday season is DAVIDsTEA's 24 Days of Tea

This Advent Calendar has tea au lieu of chocolate! Perfect for the tea lovers in your life. I just love, love, love DAVIDsTEA! I know about six people who would love to receive the 24 Days of Tea Advent Calendar as a present!
Psssst! If anyone's listening, I'd love to receive this gift! Hubby? Hello? Are you reading this? ;)

This kit includes:

Buttered Rum Chocolate Rocket
Coco Chai Rooibos Countess of Seville
Cream of Earl Grey Creme Brulee
Creme De Menthe Davids Organic Breakfast
Elf Help Exotica
Forever Nuts Green & Fruity
Honey Bee Japanese Sencha
Mulberry Magic North African Mint
Read My Lips Santa's Secret
Secret Weapon Sleigh Ride
Sweet Dreams The Skinny
Toasted Walnut Vanilla Oolong
I remember as a kid, I was always so excited to find out what chocolate surprises awaited behind each window in my Advent Calendar! I know it will be equally exciting to uncover a surprise tea flavour each day leading up to Christmas!
You know what makes me happy? "Green" presents make me happy. Of course, the Holidays aren't just about giving and receiving gifts. We all know that. This said, it would make me feel really good to know that I can tread a bit lighter on the earth by giving loved ones gifts that are practical and can be used time and time again.
Orkids.ca has fabulous stainless steel plates, cups, tiffins, containers, and snack packs. Giving friends and family gifts to help them begin the New Year with litter-less lunches is a great idea. The stainless steel items can be purchased on the orkids.ca website.  

You can also win an Orkids.ca Stainless Steel Mealtime Combo on my blog here! Make sure to enter by filling out the rafflecopter form on the original post.

Stay tuned for more Holiday gift ideas and more giveaways!
