2017 Holiday Gift Guide Giveaway for Moms!

I'm excited to share with you my very first holiday gift guide giveaway! I've put together a collection of some of my favourite things that I think would make great gift ideas. Every year my family asks me what's on my wishlist and I'm often caught off guard and can't think of anything that I'd be excited to unwrap on Christmas morning! I hope this list will help get the ideas flowing whether you're looking for ideas for yourself or for someone else! I had moms in mind when I put these together but they would really be great for any woman.

2017 Holiday Gift Guide Giveaway for Women



I have teamed up with many of these companies in order to be able to offer a Huge Giveaway worth over $1200! I can't wait to tell you about these gift ideas and some of the fabulous prizes you have the opportunity to win!



1. Camera Bag/Purse


Jo Totes are beautiful camera bags that don't look like camera bags! I love every Jo Totes bag I have and I've continued using them for years, so I can speak to the quality, functionality, and cuteness of them! Whether you love photography or not, a Jo Totes bag would be an excellent gift for anyone who is multi-tasking and looking for a bag that can carry it all! Keep reading if you'd like a chance to win your choice of Jo Totes' bags!



2. A Beautiful Watch


These wooden watches by JORD are beautiful statement pieces that make a lasting gift for both men and women. They also make for great conversation starters! I had gotten out of the habit of wearing a watch but I love my JORD Cora watch so much that I'm excited to wear it every day! At the end of this post you'll have the chance to win a Frankie watch in the colour of your choice from JORD! You can also click this link to get your own 25% off coupon code for JORD AND You can get a look at the secret sale page for their Black Friday sale here!




3. Specialty Chocolate

Years ago someone sent me a gift in the mail from Ticket Chocolate and I fell in love. The chocolate was delicious and I loved dipping the chocolate-on-a-stick into steaming milk to create a delicious, gourmet drink! The flavours are so delicious that I sometimes just eat the chocolate straight from the stick! They also offer some unique chocolate bar flavours like Salted Classic Milk Chocolate, Mom's Apple Pie, and Grasshopper Pie. My favourite thing about their cute little S'mores kits (shown below) are the incredibly soft, handmade marshmallows! A package of items from Ticket Chocolate would be a fabulous gift for just about any woman on your list. Keep reading because you'll have a chance to win some of this deliciousness!



4. Stress-Free Dinnertime!


The gift of not having to ask yourself "What will I make for dinner tonight?"... I know I'm not the only mom who wants healthy, home cooked meals but gets tired of planning and shopping for ingredients! I love the convenience of using the HelloFresh delivery service- it makes that part of my life so much easier! I immediately thought of it as a great gift idea for busy moms. You can use the code HELLOMEM40 to get $40 off your first 2 HelloFresh boxes!* Keep reading to the end of this post because you could win 3 meals!



5. A Trip to the Spa


I can't think of a more wonderful gift than to be pampered. Moms spend so much time taking care of others that they sometimes forget to take care of themselves. Even better than taking care of yourself though, is having someone else take care of you! I know a place that excels at this and I wrote about my experience at Ste. Anne's Spa last year. If you live anywhere near Ste. Anne's spa, I highly recommend it for a relaxing experience you won't forget! Stay 'til the end for a chance to win an all-inclusive trip to Ste. Anne's for you & a friend!



6. Spa Products


If a trip to the spa isn't in your gift budget, you can still give the gift of pampering by giving spa products! After our trip to Ste. Anne's spa over a year ago, I can still recall the scent of that lemongrass hand and body wash! You can order spa products from their own Skin Nourishment line to create a relaxing, rejuvenating escape right in your own home. Some of my favourite products are the Hydrating Mask with Drench Mineral Mask, Hydrating Lotion, lemongrass scented Hand & Body Wash, and Drench Facial Serum (all products that are perfect for dry winter months). You can win your own set of these products (pictured below) at the end of this post!




7. Day Planner


These days, we all spend a lot of our time on digital devices. I love using the computer for a lot of my organizing but when it comes to scheduling, I find a paper planner just works better for me. I really like Limelife Planners because they're both functional and visually attractive. You can read my review of Limelife here and also watch a little video of what the planner is like inside. My favourite part about them is how customizable they are- from the layout to the colours and patterns used on the papers inside and the cover on the outside. You can win your own Limelife Planner at the end of this post!


8. Swimsuit & a Getaway


A swimsuit may not be the first thing you think of as a Christmas gift (especially if you live in a place that gets snow, like I do), but this is a great way to gift a getaway! Depending on your budget, this could be an all-out vacation to a warm destination or just an overnight escape to a hotel with a pool. What better way to package a gift like that, than by gifting a new swimsuit? If you're headed somewhere warm, I recommend Cabana Life. Their swimsuits offer great sun protection with less time spent slathering on sun screen. Their patterns and designs are gorgeous, too. Check out tomorrow's post for your chance to win a prize from Cabana Life!



9. A Camera


Whether by photo or video, as a mom I love to document our memories! If you know a mom who's trying to get by with a cellphone camera or something outdated then a camera would be a great gift for her! If you follow my blog then you know all about how the Fujifilm X-A3 Camera has been helping me re-embrace photography! You may also know that Fujifilm & I are giving away one of these beautiful mirrorless cameras on the blog right now! This awesome giveaway is open until November 14th and only for Canadians, so don't miss your chance to enter! Come back tomorrow for your chance to win another Fujifilm product!




10. Personalized Jewelry


One of my favourite gifts to give or receive is personalized jewelry. I love the personalized necklaces I have received. I reviewed one of them here. I have given personalized necklaces to my mom and mother-in-law for special occasions in the past because it makes the jewelry so much more meaningful and special!
