Gift Guide Galore

Gorgeous gift tag by Sugar Paper
Here goes the beginning of gift guide galore. Get ready for an entire week of obscene amounts of alliteration and exclamation marks. Can you say ca-ray-zay!?! That's Type-A excitement, my dear. To kick off this week filled with stocking stuffers and fabulous finds, I thought it might be fun to treat my readers to something delightful instead. Have I piqued your interest? Tell me you're as thrilled as I am. Drum roll please...

Brrrrrrrr... Brrrrrrrr... Brrrrrrrr... 
(Um, is it cold here? Oh, that's just the sound of my pathetic drum roll. Sorry!)
What the what?
One lucky winner will receive these hand-lettered floral chalkboard tags from Kate's Paper Goods. I think they're a lovely addition to any gift (a nice thing to just have on hand), or perfect for organizing baskets and bins around the home or at the office.

Let me explain. It's One Fine Day's first official giveaway, and I couldn't think of a more perfect time to host one. You've been so devoted over the past seven months. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I wish I could reach out to each and every one of you and give one of my infamous awkward hugs. It's the least I could do! 

Now, how do you enter? There are a few different ways. I'll try to keep it simple and clear, but that doesn't always come the easiest to me. If the entry instructions seem fuzzy, feel free to email or comment with any questions or concerns. As I mentioned, this is a first for me, so I'm still learning how to iron out all the kinks. I'll announce the winner this Friday. Woop woop!

TO ENTER:
Entry 1. Be (or become) a follower of One Fine Day and leave a comment below.

Entry 2. Head over to Kate's Paper Goods and take a look around.  Then come back and leave a comment to tell us what you would put on your wish list.

Entry 3. Spread the word about this giveaway on your blog, Twitter, and/or Facebook, then come back and leave a comment.  Don't forget to include a link to the giveaway!!

If you complete all three, you will be entered three times. Yahoo! Each entry counts as one separate entry! Family and friends are more than welcome to enter the giveaway because they make up about 95% of my loyal blog readership. What of it? We will have the drawing on December 9th. If you're looking for an in to win, you'll have to sweet talk Random.org. Go get 'em and good luck!

  4. Woah, it's like you're Oprah! This is clever. Soon, you'll go full Ellen, & we'll be nominating deserving people for you to shower style & pizzazz on (because that is what you are overflowing with as opposed to moolah like Ellen).
    So dumb question, but how do I make sure that I am a follower and not just a daily stalker through your Facebook posts?

  5. Ok, JK, I found it under "Did we just become best friends?" - love that & the answer is yes. Also, love that your posting name is now Type-A(shley); or was it always? Now, I will blog about your blog and get off easily for the day :)

  10. Also, thank you guys so much for your enthusiasm!! I'm smitten with Kate's Paper Goods. I was just itching to give something away:)

    And Kim, I wish I was as rich as Ellen because I would SO have a 12 days of giveaways!! I think I would just use Oprah's excited "Favorite Things" voice. And just like Ellen, "Hot Mess" would definitely serve as our blog holiday mascot, because that's how I feel right about now. Ha ha! I guess there's only one thing that can take care of that... DANCING! ;)
