Giveaway: Choose from five $25 gift cards

Welcome to my Thanksgiving Giveaway! Even with all the cRaZInEsS of shopping, gift wrapping, visiting family and friends, cooking/baking, and sleep deprivation…….there’s something magical about this time of year. Hope I’m not the only one, but I’ve already started my annual ritual of listening to Holiday/Christmas music.

Your $25 gift card choices for this drawing are:

  • Best Buy – because people seem to come out of the woodwork to this store during the holidays, especially for Black Friday specials
  • Cheesecake Factory – ’cause their cheesecakes (& desserts) are out of this world!
  • American Express – can be used at any store that accepts AMEX
  • Starbucks – it’s perfect for every day of the year
  • Food 4 Less – Note: This gift card can also be used at its “sister” grocery stores like Kroger, Fry’s, Fred Meyer, QFC, Ralphs, Smith’s, etc.

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

  1. What’s on the menu for Thanksgiving? Even if you may not be personally doing the cooking or going to someone else’s house to eat, what do you think you’ll be feasting on? (make us salivate, ‘kay?)
  2. Which gift card you’d like to receive if you’re the winner: Best Buy, Cheesecake Factory, American Express, Starbucks, or Food 4 Less

Likely I’ll be partaking in the stereotypical Thanksgiving spread—turkey, stuffing, a few side dishes, pumpkin pie, and whatever desserts I bake.   What tops that is enjoying it all with family & friends…and playing board games too!  Good food and great times ahead. 🙂

Drawing will close on Saturday, November 22nd @ 9pm PST. One entry per person, please. One winner will be chosen at random (not based on responses) using Random Integer Generator and will be announced Sunday morning.

My fine print: Your entries will be used for entertainment purposes only! I will never ever share your private info with others. Winner has 48 hours to respond to my notification, otherwise a new winner will be drawn.

Winner of this drawing is Lacy!!! Please check your email.

I am sooo happy to read most of you have wonderful plans and food planned for Thanksgiving!!! Gosh darn it, I should have asked for your yummy recipes! I think I gained about 10 pounds reading everyone’s menus.

Hope everyone has a super Thanksgiving Day and a fun time shopping on Black Friday…and in the coming weeks!

I have three $5 In-N-Out Gift Cards left-over from my previous giveaway, so I’ll be posting that drawing either later today or tomorrow (November 24th).

    For dessert, I have pumpkin cheesecake.

  7. Every year since I can remember Thanksgiving is always at my parents home. My mother does the main dish and all of us kids bring the rest. We always have the traditional American Thanksgiving Feast which is a huge Turkey that my mother will bake and my father will carve. My mother also makes her chestnut and raisin stuffing which is out of this world! My husband and I will descend upon their house with our 3 young children and we are bringing this year the butternut squash, mashed potatoes, and rolls. My sister and her husband come with their 4 children and they are bringing the deserts which are pies that they bake themselves. My sisters husband went to a culinary school at one time in his life so he is quite the little top chef in their home. All in all, we eat way too much, but it is my favorite meal of the year that I look forward to each Thanksgiving! Thank you so much for this wonderful giveaway and giving me the chance to share my story! I would choose the American Express Gift Card, but really I would find great use with any one of them and would be truly thankful!

  13. We will be having the usual turkey and dressing meal, with salads, vegetables and desserts. What will make the day lots of fun is our first ever family costume contest. The costumes will be made after the meal and each person can use only brown paper, scissors, scotch tape or staples, colored markers, and string. The categories are pilgrims, Indians, or turkeys. With over 9 people, it should get interesting.
