    Love the Forever Teapot Set For Two. I’ve got two weddings coming up, and this set would be a perfect wedding gift!

  2. alice says:

    There’s always such great giveaways over here…it’s so generous!

    For one of my best friends…a soon to be bride who is obsessed with baths and reading…and somehow does them at the same time…The Bamboo Bathtub Caddy would be a lovely way for her to relax before the big day!

    For myself I’d have to say the Absolutely Fabulous Cookbook Stand…genius…I tend to have a splattering problem when I cook…

  3. Eileen says:

    oh wow, this site is amazing! The loose change clutch would be perfect for my best friend’s upcoming birthday. She loves clutches and this one is adorable.

    for me, I’d love the Persida Lapsac. I’m just finishing up my graduate degree and have a couple work conferences this summer – this bag would be perfect for staying stylish among all the engineers!

  4. alex says:

    My top pick is definitely the city tote – my friend Amy and I love to shop together, especially when the big Antique Expo is in town. This stylish tote would be just perfect – and we’d have matching sets of wheels!

  5. Kia says:

    Everything on this site is awesome, but since I must choose, I would love the Eco-Delightful Super Clean Home Detox Kit for my friend and myself.

  6. Jessica H. says:

    I love the Spring Flowers SIGG Reusable Water Bottlen for myself since I don’t use plastic water bottles anymore. I would love to give the Envirosax Delightfully Hip Reusable Grocery Bags for my friend :)

  7. Wilson Ribadeneira says:


  8. Ivy says:

    I LOVE the reusable grocery bags! I have been pushing my family and friends to use these for months. Their (and my own) biggest complaint is that the ones you can get at the grocery store are awkward and don’t store well. The RuMe and Envirosax bags are the perfect solution! I would want a set for myself and a set for my mom (who is also pushing everyone she knows to go the reusable route).

  9. Kathryn Bakken says:

    I would love the Trooper Multi-Purpose Reusable Tote. For my Friend (daughter) the Complete Stainless Steel Cookie Press Kit .

    What a fun contest, Thank you!

  15. Oh wow. They have amazing stuff!

    For myself I’d choose the bamboo serving set. I put one on my birthday list so it’d be a happy early birthday to me. :)

    For my mom I’d choose the Pomaireware Salsa/Condiment Serving Dish. She loves quirky serving dishes.

  19. Stephanie Fisher says:

    Delight is THE BEST! I would choose the luxe cashmere robe for my friend Tina. She’s a new mom and deserves to be pampered! And I’d love the silver leaf earrings for myself. There’s something so cool and exotic about carrying a bit of the rainforest with you all of the time!

  20. Twinks says:

    This site is SO neat. If I had to pick out 2 things one would be the soggy dog for me since I have 3 poms and myfriend bakes alot of cookies so the Cookie press set would be fantastic. Thanks for the great giveaway, it is greatly appreciated!!!

  21. Cherie says:

    I would love love love the Chip Cheery Storage Container Mega Set – Multi Stripe or dots for both myself and my daughter.

  22. For me, the smencils. So I can sniff them during meetings and my coworkers will wonder what I’m doing. For a friend, I’d pick the Kermit the Frog organic tote for my mom. Because The Muppets were a big deal in our house when I was a kid and that bag would make her day.

  23. Melanie says:

    For me it’s a toss up between a Sigg waer bottle and re-usable shopping bags. My friend just graduated and got her own apartment so the Chip Cheery containers would be practical and cute. Thanks for the chance!

  24. I definitely NEED the clocky moving alarm clock :) And since my friend is a Newlywed I think the tabletop conversation starters would be fun for them. Thought I’d really like to say I want 2 cashmere robes :) But I’ll stick to the practical stuff and cross my fingers :) Great blog!
