$50 homegoods giftcard giveaway
This is a compensated review by BlogHer and HomeGoods.
Ho, ho, ho! Time for a little Christmas season giveaway from one of my all-time favorite stores — HomeGoods!
For any of you who aren’t familiar with this store, it’s basically a Marshalls or TJMaxx store’s home section (including gourmet foods!)….on steroids. Aisles upon aisles of awesomeness for your home. My friends and family will tell you I’m a huge fan. Whenever people come to my house and ask about cute dishes, or decor, or my collection of funky pastas…more often than not, you can guess my answer. Love it!
It is also one of my favorite places to buy really great quality gifts at stellar prices. So when HomeGoods and BlogHer asked me to spend my own $50 giftcard on Christmas gifts to show, I jumped at the chance! Without a doubt, wanted to spend it on my newlywed sister and brother-in-law (who is also my rockin’ web designer for the site). They’re both major foodies, so I had a blast shopping for some fun (and very affordable!) new finds for their kitchen!
Read on to see what I found, and scroll to the bottom of the page to enter the $50 HomeGoods giftcard giveaway. Best of luck!

So, I called my sister to check in, thinking I might have to come up with some ideas for them. I should have known better…
Me: Hey, guess what? I just got a giftcard from HomeGoods in the mail, and they’d like me to buy some fun affordable Christmas presents for someone special.
Sarah: I’m special!
Me: I agree. So what would you like? I don’t know if you’ve ever been there, but they have all sorts of great decor, or stuff for your bathroom. Or there’s tons of stuff for your kitchen — you know, serving dishes, little kitchen gadgets, cool gourmet foods, teas, coff—–
Sarah: [without missing a beat]—–Um, I can tell you exactly what we’d want.
Sarah: Some cute ramekins (something more fun than the plain white from our wedding registry), a tart pan, and a cookie scoop.
Me: Wow, you were ready for that.
Sarah: Mmmmm, yep. Do you think they’d have those.
Sarah: Sweet. Thanks!
The briliant thing is that even after finding each of these items, I still had plenty left on the giftcard! So decided to get them one little surprise they didn’t ask for — one of my favorite cookbooks from Martha. They’re big cookie bakers, so I figured it could go along well with the scoop. :) All in all, the totals came up to: set of ramekins ($9.99), cookie scoop ($8.99), tart pan ($6.99) and cookbook ($15.99). Can’t beat that.
Now it’s a lucky reader’s time to go shopping! Here’s the giveaway info:
