This year has just flown by — almost too quickly for me! My son will be 18 in just a few weeks and I am SO not ready for the holidays, but here they are none the less!
On a recent trip to the store, I noticed that Christmas displays are out and in full swing! Instead of fighting the holiday rush to get started, I say — Bring on the Christmas holiday!
It’s time for the annual 5 Minutes for Mom Christmas Giveaway 2012 to begin. I have been busy lining up some great giveaway prizes this year, which you will soon be able to find down at the bottom of this post (the first one will be posted on Thursday, November 1st).
Yes, we love this time of year! Not only do we have the pleasure of helping some families in need with our Under the Tree program, but we also get to bring some fun Christmas Giveaways your way to help you with your holiday shopping.
What Would You Like to Win This Year?
Let’s get our fingers ready for shopping! The good thing about winning gifts for Christmas is you get to avoid the hustle and bustle of shopping stores! Grab a cup of coffee and and get in the mood for Christmas with our Christmas Giveaway 2012 and Under the Tree 2012.
As always, our Christmas Giveaway 2012 is jam packed with fun! (Please scroll down to see our current list of prizes.) We will publish the first giveaway on Thursday, November 1st, 2012 followed by a new giveaway each day throughout November. So be sure to check back.
We will have tons of giveaways coming your way this month to ensure that you have lots of fun, lots of chances to win, and lots of shopping ideas!
AND, we are delighted to once again spread some holiday cheer with our Under the Tree program!
Under the Tree
Under the Tree 2012 is our chance to spread some Christmas love to families in need through the generosity of the companies contributing to our Christmas Giveaway as well as companies who have donated “just because”. We are so grateful for their participation!
We have many wonderful companies providing presents to selected families who are in need this Christmas.
If you know a family who will not be able to provide presents for their children this Christmas, click over and read more about Under the Tree and how you can nominate a family in need.
