    The design of the Joya Pomegranate candles and diffusers is absolutely amazing! I’d probably just get 2 of those sets – one for my friend that just bought a new house and one for me! *fingers crossed*!!

  7. Connie Ausema says:

  12. ashley d says:

    i wouldn’t pick my best friend, i’d pick my soon to be aunt! their wedding is june 28th and she’s OBSESSED with elvis. she’d have to have “the King of Toughened Glass Worktop Saver”!! i’m pretty sure she’d pee a little if she opened that at her bridal shower!!

    and since i’m throwing the bridal shower, then i absolutely must have the “All Purpose Olive and Appetizer Dish”! so cute! so chic!!

  13. reese says:

    Such a tough decision! I’d say that my mom would love the bright bamboo serving set though, and I would like to pick up the bamboo bath caddy for myself. That setup with the book and the wine glass looks absoutely “delightful”! ;)

  14. Hil'Lesha says:

    I love the Starbright Satchel. :)

  15. I think the Teaposy Stunning Blooming tea set is fabulous! And one for my sister too.

  16. How fun!

    For me: Persida Lapsac by Nanda Home
    For a friend: Vampy Croc Clutch

  17. Janice Whitaker says:

    I like the clutch

  18. Carol says:

    For me, I like the New, Improved Persida Lapsac by Nanda Home for my laptop, and for my friend I like the Miniature French Herb Gardens for Cooks!

  19. Kate says:

    I am DYING to have the sweet as can be sweets tray AND that sweet wooden iPod speaker system! And lots of other stuff too!

    I want to send my girlfriend the Joya scent diffusers. YUM.

  20. Kimberly Cook says:

    I’m not picky!

  21. Stephanie says:

    I love the Persida Lapsac! This would be a great replacement for my boring black bag I currently carry to work.

    And I know my parents would love the Soggy Dog drying towel… perfect for their two labs!

  22. amy says:

    I’d love the Teaposy Stunning Blooming Tea Set for me (since i think it would be not be ok to gift my self the $100 gift certificate??), and the Absolutely Fabulous Cookbook Stand for my good friend Elizabeth.

  23. Coralee says:

    I would love to give my friend the teaposy gift set and for myself, maybe a sigg bottle.

  24. I loved everything, but I love the “fight the onion goggles”! I cry literally every time I cut an onion, so this is ingenius! I would love those if I won. For my sister who loves handbags, I know she would love the “Starbright Satchel made from RECYCLED PLASTIC”. It is so cute….and who would’ve thought that came from recycled plastic. Amazing website…love it.

  25. Stephanie C. says:

    I would love to give the Forget Me Knot Ring and get the Beautiful Silver Elm Necklace. Gorgeous!

  26. Jana Ortega says:

    Easy! My sister and I are competing on who’s the greenest- right now my Prius is beating her recycling but she’s gaining on me with her carbon footprint measurement! We both REALLY need the RuME grocery bags – I use them to carry everything now! My laptop is in one now! The spring colors are a perfect match to my organic cotton spring dresses!

  27. Cathy Wilcox says:

    I love the Chip Cheery Storage Container Mega Set – one in stripe for me and one in dots for my best friend!

  28. I looked through the hostess gifts because I always want to take a little something along. I like the conversation cards (family edition), but would keep the bird candle-holders for my parties.

  29. Julie M. says:

    I am in LOVE with that loose coin clutch, but it’s a bit much for my budget! I would settle for the Envirosax Delightfully Pretty Reusable Grocery Bags, and I would buy my bestest friend (sister) the Starbright satchel. I was VERY impressed with what things are made of! So cool!

  30. Meg Perotti says:

    I would love to get Forget Me Knot ring and for a friend I would definitely send over the RuMe Bags Reusable Totes!

  31. Diana H. says:

    That banana hanger is SO cute!

  32. Natalie says:

    I love everything from DLight — but I would love one of those pots because I always kill plants, and their serving dishes are so fabulous as wedding gifts!! Oh please!!
    Oh, I just realized I want one of their enviromentally safe water bottles too…the choices, the choices! I’ll take whatever comes my way!

  33. Alexa Whitehead says:

    I have been coveting the Sunjar for years! I really want one, and I know my best friend would love the Vers sound system. She just got her first iPod ever, and I know she’d definitely make good use of the Vers. Thanks!

  34. Ashley says:

    So many cool things, I don’t even know where to start!

    So many things that tugged on the strings of my heart!

    The jar of sunshine is sweet, the lunar necklace is cool,

    Who wouldn’t want the cashmere robe? I’m no fool!

    However, there’s one thing I’ve had my eye on—and it’s not even pricey.

    As those disposable plastic bottles & containers, they’re rather dicey.

    Hence, a “Chip Cheery Storage Container Mega Set ” for Joey, and a Sigg Water Bottle for me.

    I think the Spring Flowers one is cute as can be. ;)

  35. Jackie says:

    I would love, Love, LOVE the Bambu Servig Set-how fun are those colors? And for my mommy, she would be delighted to recieve the Eco delightful super clean home detox kit. She has been on a serious kick about chemicals in the home lately, and I know this would just blow her mind! Thanks so much for a great giveaway!

  36. Gaye McGill says:

    What a great shop! I’d love to have the shimmering green recycled glass necklace for myself and the Teasposy stunning blooming tea set for my daughter.

  37. Stephanie says:

    Wow, everything is so cute!
    Hmmm, I like those grobal things that I’ve been hearing about…and the water bottles…I think I’d have to check what a friend would want! But I’m definitely thinking about the jewelry for a friend…or the kitchen strainers!

  38. KELLY N. says:

    I think the Joya Pomegranate and Quince Diffusers and Candles I would get for myself and the XO Silver Necklace I would send to a friend.

    Thank you for the great giveaway!


  39. TanjaT says:

    I love Chip Cheery Storage Container Mega Set – Multi Stripe!
    And for my friend Teaposy Stunning Blooming Tea Set!
    Thanks :)

    My goodness….how bright and cheery these products are! When I moved in with my fiance I (naively) gave away most of my fun dishes in an effort to save space….then I started a food blog a few weeks later and never have any cool plates for my photos….grrrr! The Roots & Shoots plate set would fix that problem nicely….plust the match our decor perfectly (kismet perhaps?).

    The Teaposy tea set would be a fabulous gift for my future Mother-in-Law. She’s been feeling down lately (no one was able to travel to see her for mother’s day) and I know this would brighten her spririts. Plus, we’re likely going to be giving flowering tea as a favor at our wedding next year, so I know my MOH would be touched to be our official “tester”.
