WhatDidSheFind Gift Guide: Day Thirty (Giveaway!)

Holiday Gift Guide Day 30

This past summer I discovered RumbaTime, a brand of fun, affordable watches and accessories.  One of my favourites, is their Orchard Gem Collection of watches, which retail for around $45.00 US each, and can be purchased online or at Indigo in Canada.  These watches are perfect for wearing alone, or layering with other bracelets (hello, arm party!).  The band is silicon and is adjustable (one-size-fits-all), and the rose gold face is 35mm wide, and is water resistant up to 99 feet.  These watches are the perfect combination of functionality and fashion.      

I actually first discovered RumbaTime watches at American Eagle Outfitters (RumbaTime did a line of watches exclusively for AE).  Love at first sight, I purchased three of them in the Orchard Gem style: 2 for me, and 1 to give away.  So, as a thank-you to all of you who have taken the time to read my Gift Guide entries over the last 30 days, I’m giving away the limited edition RumbaTime for American Eagle Outfitters watch shown above (on the left).

To enter, all you need to do is follow this blog: WhatDidSheFind (you can find the “subscribe” button on the right-hand side of the page on a desktop computer, or at the bottom on a mobile device), and comment below letting me know what day of the gift guide was your favourite.  The giveaway will close on Monday, December 22nd at 8:00pm, and is open to residents of Canada and the United States.

I hope you enjoyed this year’s gift guide, and maybe even used some of ideas for your friends and loved ones.  Wishing you a very happy holiday!

Today’s gift spreads love and joy to more than just a single friend or family member.  For every one of these fun storage pouches sold,  150 litres of clean water is provided to a person in a “Free the Children” community overseas.  And, if you’re curious as to where in the world you’ve changed someone’s life for the better, simply enter the code found on the tag at “TrackYourImpact.com”.  These storage pouches come in three different styles, (the one above is my personal favourite), and measure 6.5 X 9 inches, making them perfect for everything from pens and pencils to makeup.  You can purchase them in-store or online (limited styles available online) at Staples for $8.98 CDN.

Today’s gift is so pretty, you don’t even need to wrap it (in fact, you can just hang it on the tree!).  For just $10.00, these adorable Victoria’s Secret Eau de Parfum Ornaments make the perfect gift for friends and co-workers.  Each sparkly ornament comes with a 7.5 ml fragrance inside (you can choose from a variety of scents).  Grab your friend’s signature fragrance, or give her the opportunity to test out a new one, without having to commit to a full bottle. And maybe grab one (or two, or three) for yourself while you’re at it.
