You’ve Got Santa Pics, We’ve Got Prizes!

On Tuesday, I told you that Tonya from Letters For Lucas and I are hosting a Santa Photos Link Up, and that we were going to have some amazing prizes to giveaway! And these prizes are all prizes that the two of us considered keeping for ourselves, but since it’s the holidays and we’re full of Christmas cheer we thought it would be best to give them to you all instead.

All you have to do is link up a photo from this year of your kids, you, your pet….whoever or whatever…sitting on Santa’s lap. But maybe you don’t celebrate Christmas or you celebrate another holiday – that’s okay! Any holiday photo will do, as long as it is from this year and it’s festive.

So now on to the good stuff…here’s what you’ve got a shot at winning:

Huggerz by Kidzies

Your kids will love these koozies for their sippy cups and water bottles! You will love that you can identify which sippy cup belongs to who simply by looking at their Huggerz. My kids LOVE theirs,and if you want to hear more about them, I did a review over at that you can check out.

Kidzies was nice enough to offer us three of them to give away! You can choose from a wide variety of Huggerz and trust me, your kids will think it’s so cool to have one on their cups!

You can follow Kidzies on Twitter and Kidzies on Facebook…and right now, if you go to the Kidzies website, if you buy 5 Huggerz you can get one free through 12/31/11! Great (and affordable!) gift idea for all the kids on your list.

A $20 gift card to Yes please! Spend it however you’d like by going to and selecting any retailer(s) where you want to use your Gift Card dollars! It works at multiple retailers, can be redeemed for cash or donated to charity! Plus, a portion of Gift Card sales goes to our amazing non-profit partner World of Children! Help Santa make the world a better place by doing good and giving well!

But that’s not all you can do at…the kids can write wish lists, you can get a personalized letter from Santa, and more!

Follow Santa on Facebook and follow on Twitter to see what Santa’s up to throughout the holiday season!

Raleigh Cake Pops

How about a $25 gift code to Raleigh Cake Pops?! What a great treat for yourself (just remember to hide them so the kids don’t see them or you will have to share!)

Raleigh Cake Pops offers custom cake pops, cake pop gift sets, and gourmet gift pops. They are nice enough to let us giveaway $25 to their site and you can pick the product you want (excluding tax and shipping).

Don’t forget to follow Raleigh Cake Pops on Facebook and Raleigh Cake Pops on Twitter, too!


Our grand prize giveaway is a $50 gift card to ONEHOPE wine! Not only do they offer a great selection of wines, they also believe in giving back, and have made it part of who they are. If you aren’t familiar with ONEHOPE, head over to Have Wine, Will Drink for an overview of their mission and to find out why I love them so much.

I’m also a huge fan of Hope at Home, ONEHOPE’s private wine tasting program that allows individuals the opportunity to fundraise and spread awareness for a cause of their choice. Their blog is also full of fun recipes, tips, and crafts dedicated to what we all love: wine. And while you’re there,  check out Hope at Home’s Give the Gift of Hope This Holiday. The gift package includes 12 gift bags and tags and one case of wine. You can either pick one varietal or select your own mixed case. Shipping is included, as well. The price of the package is $240…that’s 12 gifts for $20 a gift! You also get to give a charity of your choice 10% of the purchase price. It’s a win/win for everybody!

So you have to follow ONEHOPE wine on Facebook and ONEHOPE Wine on Twitter, and also follow Hope at Home on Facebook and Hope at Home on Twitter.

We only have 10 entries so far and lots of prizes, so your chances of winning are really good! We’re picking random winners, so it doesn’t matter how “good” or “bad” your pictures are. Now go grab the button (the code is on my sidebar) and link up a post of you, your kids, or your pet on the big guy’s lap. We can’t wait to see your pictures!
