GIVEAWAY: Starbucks Gift Set + four $5 gift cards

Because it’s been mind-numbingly cold and I much prefer warmth and sunshine. Because Mother Nature is a force to be reckoned with this winter.  Because it’s been a year since my last giveaway. And because Jeff has been insisting I give this Starbucks Gift Set a new home soon.  (He’s the one who picked it out and suggested I use it for a giveaway).

15th Giveaway

There will be 5 winners (1 grand prize + 4 runner-ups). The grand prize winner gets this fantabulous Starbucks Coffee Winter Holiday Gift Set. (If you wanna see more photos, here’s a linky to Amazon. Only difference is this travel mug doesn’t have the red snowflakes). The 4 runner-ups will each receive my consolation prize of a $5 Starbucks gift card.

To enter drawing, answer these 2 questions in the “Post a Comment” section below:

1. What kind of weather has Mother Nature thrown your way this winter?

2. Do you prefer cold (brrrr!) or warm (ahhhh!) temperatures?

Drawing will close on Sunday, February 13th @ 6pm PT. One entry per person, please. Limited to United States and Canadian residents only. One grand prize winner and four runner-ups will be chosen at random using Random Integer Generator. Winners will be announced later that evening. Any chosen winners who did not answer both questions will be automatically disqualified and a new winner will be selected.

My fine print: Your entries will be used for entertainment purposes only. I will never ever share your private info with others. I do not have any affiliation with Starbucks (unless you count being a satisfied customer of their pastries :p). Winners have 48 hours to respond to my notification, otherwise a new winner will be drawn.

Darcy B wins the Starbucks Coffee Gift Set. Starbucks Gift Cards are going to Stephanie, Jolene, Marsha Arditti, and Aliya D. Please check your email.

Most of you prefer warmth over cold (or it could just be my bias :p). And gosh golly, we’ve had snow days here in Memphis, but thankfully there was no shoveling involved. *Shudders at the very thought*

Thank you for participating, everyone.

  1. I live in the “snowbelt” of NE Ohio and we have been dealt quite a cold, snowy year this year…It always gets depressing around Feb.

    I prefer warm days (in the 70s) but i do like snow when I can stay in and make bread and soup all day!

  2. we were having a great winter…that is until January hit. It seems like we have a huge snowstorm every wednesday. Now we have tons of snow!! I work in a school so the positive side of all this is SNOW DAYS!!

    I like the warm weather! I love laying out in my pool on my queen size air mattress…its a little bit of heaven!

  3. I live in Portland, Oregon no snow this year just lots of rain and cold nights. I actually prefer cold weather to heat–but I hate to have lot’s of freezing temperatures and no snow–it’s just not fair!

  5. Snow, Snow, Snow & MORE SNOW here in Northeast Ohio. Cold temperatures but this week it’s going to be a bit warmer. Maybe the ice on the driveway will finally melt!

    I definitely prefer warmer temperatures over cold.

    Thanks for the opportunity.

  15. We had a cool summer, which is unusual. Then we had a very rainy winter, for awhile. Right now it is perfect-in the 70s.
    I prefer cool and cloudy weather.

    15 Posted by carol y | February 13, 2011, 5:25 pm
  16. We’ve gotten below zero temps, as usual, and a lot of snow. Having lived in south Florida for 18 years, and now up north for 6+ years, I can def. say I prefer warm weather to the cold.

  17. 1. What kind of weather has Mother Nature thrown your way this winter?

    Where I live, we were hit with a blizzard that put 4 feet of snow on the ground. Everyone was out shoveling their cars out.

    2. Do you prefer cold (brrrr!) or warm (ahhhh!) temperatures?

    I prefer warm temperatures! I love beach weather and staying out in the sun.

  18. 1. I’m in Hawaii sooo… yea

    2. I prefer cooler temps and like minimal sunshine. I’m baking out here!

    18 Posted by Breanne | February 13, 2011, 6:18 pm
  19. 1) This winter the kind, and dearest mother nature has thrown some very cold and snowy weather at us in the Washinton D.C area! However; with a Starbucks down the street, staying warm was easy!
    2) I prefer warm weather because you can always jump in the pool or ocean to cool down. Nothing beats a hot summer day with a cold drink.

    19 Posted by shannon hudson | February 13, 2011, 7:06 pm
  20. It has been pretty cold and snowy this winter.
    I prefer cooler temperatures. I can always put more clothes on but with the heat there are only so many that you can take off.

    20 Posted by Roxann | February 13, 2011, 7:31 pm
  21. 1. Winter has been pretty rainy this year. However, not too cold for too long! Typical california.

  22. Our weather in Michigan has been cold and snowy!

  23. It’s been chilly at night but luckily I’m too far south for the blizzard weather. I like snow but mostly prefer to be warm.

    23 Posted by Shannon | February 13, 2011, 7:55 pm
  24. We had a green lawn at Christmas, but luckily the snow eventually did come later, and now it’s pretty and white outside.

    I love the cold. I look forward to winter every year!

  25. Mother Nature has thrown wintry weather our way. It has snowed three times which is very unusual Usually it snows once a year, not every year. It snowed on Christmas which is very unusual. I prefer warm weather.

    25 Posted by Veronica Garrett | February 13, 2011, 8:39 pm
  26. 1. We had snow and crazy cold weather for far west Texas.

    2. I prefer winter in far west Texas as it’s relatively warm during the day and cool at night. Summers are a killer here!

    26 Posted by Sand | February 13, 2011, 8:48 pm
  27. I have had a super, nice, relatively warm winter in San Diego. I have enjoyed my iced coffee drinks on a regular basis. It really calms me down and I tend to have a relaxed day at work, after sipping on my Star Bucks.
