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!

***This giveaway is now closed. Congrats to Jeanette for winning! (See below.)***

A little snapshot of the newlyweds

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…

Sarah: Hi!

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.

Me: Ok…?

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.

Me: Definitely.

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:

  1. Love Love Love that store. I would purchase from hgkids dept for my 6 yr. old girl since we’re in the middle of moving and she’ll be getting her very own room – no sharing with her little brother!!

  2. I’d like the handcrafted decorative bowls.

  3. I would LOVE to get my mom a few things for her new place. She just moved, and had to leave everything behind (emergency situation). It would make her SOOOOO happy to have something nice in her kitchen–it’s her favorite room in her house.

  4. I would use it to expand my bake-ware collection & also update my napkins for my new apartment.

  5. I would buy serving dishes. They have the best variety of pretty platters and bowls and I never seem to have the money in my budget to splurge on things like that.

  6. I have been on the lookout for a mosaic mirror for my daughter and would love to see if HomeGoods has one. If not I could really use another set of flannel sheets!

  7. I would use the giftcard to purchase a new saucepan. Thanks for the giveaway!

  8. I think that this is a great give-away. I would get a friend a wedding present and fill in a few presents that I am late with since we have just moved and are on a tight budget.

  9. I would love a coffee maker that works!

  11. There’s a Home Goods next to the Sprouts I frequent, and I’ve been tempted to check it out. If I had this gift card, I can promise you it’ll become my new favorite store! I keep promising my 11 year old that we’ll redo her bedroom (She’s over the horse-theme.) so I’d use this gift card if I won to buy her some new curtains or a new comforter. Thanks!

  12. I love this store – thanks for the contest!

  13. I love HomeGoods! I would probably buy a dutch oven with the $50 gift card. I’ve been lusting after a few of them there recently!

  14. Love HG! I purchased some beautiful stoneware serving pieces in fish and starfish shapes already, and I would LOVE to get the “crab” soup tureen! It is adorable!

  15. Hey! I love this blog and would love a HomeGoods gift card! I would use it for decorations for my living room. My roommate and i have been trying to decorate that room and it would be great to have a gift card to help out!

  16. I love those little ramekins, and I’d love to have $50 to spend at HomeGoods!

  17. I would love to buy some mixing bowls. I am really excited when I
    can find unique mixing bowls out of the ordinary. Any color, any style,
    I love them!

  18. would love a zester……keep putting it on my wish list and no one takes me serious!

  19. I would pick up some new towels. Not terribly exciting, I know, but we need them and I’d like to get pretty ones!

  20. I would buy a mirror for the bathroom reno we’re doing!


  22. Love Home Goods. I desperately need new baking dishes after a little kitchen mishap where I tried to pull too many things from too tall of a shelf and big crash/smash/shatter resulted.

  23. I would love to buy a cookbook on cupcakes and a silicone whisk. Plus they always have reasonable prices on basics and fun splurges to look over for my family.

  24. You got some great stuff with your $50. I hope I can get some with mine. Thanks for the contest.

  25. blogged:

  26. I would love to get some new sheets and a quilt for our bed. And of course, the after Christmas shopping…I am getting giddy just thinking about it!

    Home Store.
