Melissa & Doug Terrific Twenty List and Giveaway - Ends 11/23

 Melissa & Doug Terrific Twenty Holiday Gifts for 2012


I don't want to stress you out, but Christmas is coming up soon.  In our house, that is a VERY good thing.  The husband & I are both major Christmas nuts.  The only challenging part most years is gift giving.  I love to find the PERFECT gift for everyone on my list.  Yeah, I know, the bar is set a bit high.  Of course, all those perfect gifts also have to fit into my admittedly tight budget.

On that note, I am SO excited to tell you about the latest from Melissa & Doug.  Those of you who haven't heard of them (if there are any) are SERIOUSLY missing out!  Their toys are great - made to last and fantastic when it comes to encouraging imaginative play.  Little big man is a bit old for a lot of their stuff, but they do have some great games, trivia sets, and craft supplies that are perfect for the "tween" in your life.  Yikes - can't believe I have a kid that old!  I also have 5 nieces, all ranging from baby/toddler to preschooler.  These girls LOVE Melissa & Doug (and so do their parents).  This company has something for all of them - great stuff for the babies, stuff that makes toddlers feel like big kids, and the perfect toys to make those "4 going on 24" preschoolers feel like they really are grown.

Can you tell I love this company?  I hope so - if you can't, then I'm not doing my job.  So, without any more rambling on my part (who am I kidding - I'll probably start rambling again soon), here's the big news.  It's time for Melissa & Doug's Terrific Twenty Giveaway!  These are some of their top gifts for 2012, and they are giving them away (yup - FREE) on their Facebook page!  Enter to win one of the Terrific Twenty every day - that's right, you get a new chance every day!

But wait - it gets even better!  If you've made it this far, I have more good news!  The generous folks over at Melissa & Doug are giving you the chance to win a Wildlife Rescue Sorting Truck - this one is great for kiddos ages 2 & up.

You have three chances to win this giveaway:

The first entry (mandatory) is leave a comment letting me know what you would do with this if you win - keep it for your own child, give it as a gift, etc.

For a bonus entry, go enter the drawing here, then come back and tell me what you are hoping to win!

2nd bonus entry - share this giveaway on Twitter, Facebook Pinterest, etc, then come back & leave me a link to your post

Please remember to leave me an email address or an alternate way to contact you (a Twitter handle, link to a FB page, etc) - make sure it's correct as it's the only way I will have to contact the winner.  The giveaway will end at 8pm (pacific time) on Friday November 23 and the winner will have 24 hours to respond before I choose an alternate.

Good luck!

A Few More Chances to Win with Coach!

Hi again everyone!  I've been having fun trying to find colortags & attempting to win (I still haven't won - let me know if you have more luck!).  I figured, since the folks at Coach are being so generous, I would tag a few more colors & let you all have a better shot at it!  So here we go - have fun, and feel free to share away!


There, now wasn't that fun? And yes, these are all colors I actually like!  I love the wide variety that Coach has - now if I could just afford a bag in one of these.... someday!

Coach Color Tag

Hi, I'm the Bonus-Momma & I'm a purse addict.  Yeah, I admit it - like I've mentioned in previous posts, I love love LOVE purses!  Someday if I'm fabulously lucky, I would love to own a Coach purse - they are kind of the purse lover's dream, as far as I'm concerned.  Unfortunately, it's not in the budget right now.  I did stumble across a great contest, though, over at http://colortag.coach.com/ that gives bloggers (and readers, facebookers, twitter users, etc) the chance to win!  Coach is celebrating their legacy collection & 70 years of color!  One of my favorites is:


If you love it too - tag it!  Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest - you name it.  When you share the tag, you have a chance to win.  Have fun and keep your eyes here for more posts with more fabulous colors!
