The Trenches 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways - DAY 1 *Updated With Winner!*

The winner is Classy Fab Sarah!
*****


In appreciation of all my loyal readers and in the spirit of the holidays, I have decided to do a SECOND ANNUAL holiday giveaway here in my Trenches. One new item each day. Perfect for re-gifting (I'll try not to be offended), or keeping for yourself! You need to leave a comment on each daily giveaway you wish to be entered. The 12 winners (one per day per giveaway) will be drawn on December 13.

*****
So let's get started!

*throat clear*
Mimimimimi....

On the first day of Christmas, my true love Sarah in the Trenches gave to me...

A partridge in a pear tree Macy's gift card for a shopping spree!

Macy’s BELIEVE campaign is building on the great success of its last year’s holiday effort to support the Make-A-Wish Foundation®. This year, Macy’s is adding to the spirit of “Believe” with a national Santa Tour, an honorary National Believe Day, a “Yes, Virginia ” animated special, and a new TV commercial featuring Queen Latifah.

The nostalgic holiday campaign was inspired by the New York Sun’s famous “Yes, Virginia , there is a Santa Claus” editorial from 1897 and includes letter-writing “Believe Stations” in Macy’s stores across the country. For each letter received, Macy’s will donate $1 to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, up to $1 million.

For more details, please visit www.macys.com/believe.

But to be entered you must:  twitter this and then link to this giveaway and then tell me what you would buy and then promise me your firstborn...

Simply leave a comment below and you are entered to win a $25 gift card to Macy's!!! (No e-mail? No blog?  How will I get in touch with you?!  Make sure you leave me your contact info puh-leeze.)

[Special thanks to M80 for contacting me on behalf of Macy's to host this gift card giveaway.]

Macy's always has the cutest dresses for Madaline!!! And, as corny as this sounds...I really like their commercials with all the celebrities in it - especially the one where at the end the little girl tries to reach up to see if Donald Trump's hair is real! LOL.

Kate Coveny Hood said...

This is a useful one! I'd love to win.

Hey - not sure if you saw that note I added to my recipe reply (mighty media) - but I'm doing a giveaway series for indie designers/small companies - about 22 prizes in all. Come visit! (maybe we can exchange links?)

Either way - I'll keep my fingers crossed for the gift card!

Sorry for the duplicate comment!

Heather@PixieDust said...

macys? make-up counter? what? what?!?!

Classy Fab Sarah said...

Ok, every time I see the commercial with the girl dropping her letter in the box for Santa - I get a wee bit teary eyed.

Which might be why I purchased maybe a 1/3 of my Christmas gifts at Macy's this year. Weird...

But who doesn't love shopping, right?

Lolli said...

Count me in, too! I would love to have a little holiday shopping spree!

There used to be a Macy's two blocks from my loft when I lived in downtown Atlanta. I went shopping during my lunch break. I was heartbroken when it closed, but no longer in credit card debt. ha ha!
