Merry Christmas! It’s a Glade Gift Basket Giveaway!

December 23, 2009 at 4:20 am 9 comments

So, you could say I’m a bit late on posting this giveaway, as the party I attended where we made these gorgeous gift baskets was last month. But, I would say I’m right on time! What better way to start your New Year than with freshening up your home – out with the old, in with the new!

Early in November, Anne Marie of A Mama’s Rant hosted a little get-together, sponsored by Glade, for some of the Denver-area bloggers. We had fabulous hors d’oeuvres, wine and conversation in an intimate setting at the downtown Warwick Hotel. It’s always fun to meet other bloggers who soon become friends online and IRL (in real life)!

We were then introduced to the new Glade Sense and Spray air freshener and set about making our gift baskets. One to take home and one to give away. Your basket will arrive exactly as pictured above. Delivered free by Glade! In the natural woven Ikea basket you will find not only the Glade Sense and Spray in Clean Linen scent and one refill bottle, but a cozy, cream-colored Ikea throw, a purple sleep mask, glass keepsake jar filled with hot cocoa mix, chocolate chips and marshmallows, and a ceramic mug with markers to decorate and make your own! I spared you my own attempt at decorating the mug like other bloggers did, such as Laura from LaLa Girl or even Jen Goode, the professional illustrator who doodles adorable penguins! Crafts aren’t my strong point.

To end the evening there was a drawing for the lovely Gerber daisy centerpieces, and yours’ truly won the biggest one! Danny was surprised when I came home from my Girl’s Night Out with both arms full. He was even more surprised to see how the new air freshener worked. Danny just so happens to be an air freshener connoisseur. We have more kinds of air fresheners in our house than I can keep track of. The plug-in kind, the fan-blown kind and the good old fashioned aerosol can just to name a few. He’s always in search of the latest greatest way to make the house smell great. Is that weird for a guy? Anyway, as soon as he saw how the Sense and Spray worked by use of motion detector to spray only when you walk into a room, he was smitten. A smart air freshener that runs on batteries and dispenses only when needed in just the perfect amount every time? Danny was ready to throw out all the rest. In fact, a few days later he came home from the store with another Glade Sense and Spray for our second bathroom. I was so proud. I only wish he had used the $3 off coupon that came in the box. 😉

To win this beautiful gift basket assembled by moi, just leave a comment below. The winner will be selected at random on Saturday,  December 26th, the day after Christmas. Be sure I know how to contact you to let you know you won so I can get your shipping address and you should have this baby by the first week of January!

Good luck!

    I love Glade products- but my student mom budget doesn’t allow me to purchase them often. Winning them would be great!

A half-hatched role-reversal takes flight on a wing and a prayer.

Life is a misadventure mixed with mayhem.
