But what do YOU want for Christmas? Tweet, Tweet…

by Susan

We moms seem to always put ourselves at the bottom of ALL our lists… especially the Christmas Shopping Lists.

Yes, for us moms with little kids, much of our Christmas joy comes from watching our delighted tykes tear open their gifts on Christmas morning to find exactly what they wanted.

But let’s be honest… I’m sure we all have plenty of Christmas wishes we’d like to whisper to Santa.

Well, Santa may not be real, but Twitter is… And we have our ears closely tuned to tweets with Christmas wishes and certain hashtags…

So while we may not have Santa superpowers, we do have the next best thing…
TJ Maxx/Marshalls GIFT CARDS!!!

Yes, because we love the stores ourselves, we’ve partnered up with T.J.Maxx and Marshalls to bring you some holiday Twitter fun where you will have the chance to win something for yourself.

T.J.Maxx and Marshalls are your one-stop shop for items for the whole family, at every budget. With savings of up to 60% on in-season brand name merchandise, we had to share our favorite holiday shopping destination with you — and of course giveaway some gift cards too!

Each Monday through December 20th, we’ll ask you to share something on your holiday wish list. What’s that one present you’ve had your eye on, but haven’t had a chance to buy for yourself? Is it that new designer handbag, glitzy party shoes, or a special item for your home?

You can tweet as many times as you like with different wishes up until Dec 20th.

Marshalls TJ Maxx - Christmas LogoShare your holiday wish with us each week for a chance to be randomly selected as a winner of a $50 gift card for T.J.Maxx and Marshalls. With amazing prices on the hottest holiday gifts, you can go shopping and grant a few of your own Christmas wishes.

At the end of the promotion, we’ll also be awarding a $200 grand prize gift card good at T.J.Maxx or Marshalls, so the more you Tweet, the better your odds are of winning the ultimate prize!

Weekly Prizes

Each week we will select a random tweet with the hashtags #betterwaytoshop #MarshallsTJMaxx and award a TJ Maxx/Marshalls $50 Gift Card Fridays Dec 3, Dec 10 and Dec 17 and on Tuesday Dec 21st on Twitter.

Also on Tuesday December 21 we will select one more random tweet from the previous three weeks with the hashtags #betterwaytoshop #MarshallsTJMaxx and award a TJ Maxx/Marshalls $200 Gift Card.

We will tweet out the winners and publish their twitter handles on 5 Minutes for Mom. Please ensure you follow us @5MinutesForMom so that we can DM you if we draw your name.

Good question Pam and I don’t think that is the case… I think you can tweet now. But we will get further clarification on if there are any tweet limits… we will ask and update here to let you know.

Awesome promotion! I am a TJMaxx/Marshalls JUNKIE and am sad that TJ’s hasn’t called me yet to come to their headquarters – I work right down the street!

I love TJ MAXX! I got the cutest sweaters last month, I’ve been dying for a cute pair of boots. I don’t own anything other than Uggs, and well our budget doesn’t allow for extra purchases this year. So I’d love some boots with heels for myself!

I tweeted, and will continue to tweet!

WoooHooo my daughters love our local TJ Maxx it is their fav! Now I have to think of something for a wish list…. you dare not think of one, usually, ’cause it’s all about the kiddos (who are not such kiddos any more – but they are to me). This will be fun!
