Lulu Guinness

At this time of year I’m consumed with finding the perfect gifts for all my loved ones. Meticulous planning with a smidgen of good luck and my Christmas shopping is almost complete. Time for the fun bit…. the wrapping! As a self confessed stationery freak, I adores all the bows, ribbon and glitter involved in gift wrapping. With all that hard work I think a little treat is in order and there’s some seriously amazing competitions online right now. Here’s my five favourite.

Lulu Guinness has 12 days of gifts, give-aways and discounts. Lulu’s 12 Days of Christmas.

Win a £1500 beauty hamper with House of Fraser. House of Fraser.

Win a Mini Hatchback just like mine.

Countdown to Christmas with Jaeger… 12 days of gifts and goodies. Jaeger.

Win a Spa break with ELLE and Highland Spring, what better way to start the new year? ELLE.

Good luck! x
