Hello and happy Friday-holidaze!
My tree has yet to be deckered and the stockings are still not hung by the chimney with care. Hell, I still have to MAKE this year’s new addition’s Christmas stockings (but I’m just saying no to burlap—ew!).
And that’s why, my friends, I’m sharing the holiday love with you!
The Gift That Just Keeps Giving
Earlier this week I received a bomb diggity Christmas care package from my friends at DeLallo Foods, who if you’ve been around the blog this year you will know is one of my favorite foodie partners.
Man, what a care package it was!
In case you missed the big reveal on Snapchat, here’s the video of us opening our bounty. Do you follow me on Snapchat yet? This is the kind of stuff you’re missing out on!
But it’s Christmas and I can’t be all alone in this DeLallo gift receiving line, so join me!
DeLallo is offering all FoodieCrush followers a 25% discount (!) on all of their online gifts ordered before December 16 when you enter the code FOODIE25.
Order your holiday gifts and see what they have to offer here.
Choose from gift collections of cheeses. Salamis and olives. Pasta pantry staples. Pizza making kits and antipasti galore! But let us not forget the chocolate covered pretzels and Cookie Crush cookies that will leave you spoiled for any other.
But wait! There’s more!
Let’s Do a Holiday Giveaway!
DeLallo Foods has generously offered to send one FoodieCrush follower a gift collection of their choice. Ho-ho-ho!
But that’s not all!
Part of the winner’s giveaway prize is that DeLallo will ALSO send a gift collection FROM you TO someone of your choice.
That means 2 holiday gift collections will find a lucky new home: one for the winner and one for a friend.
It’s the gift that just keeps giving.
Here’s how to enter:
To enter the giveaway simply leave a comment at the bottom of this post telling me the name of your favorite holiday food. Please leave a valid e-mail address when entering your comment so I can contact you if you win.
Giveaway will end next Thursday 12/10/15 at 11:59 pm PST. The winner will be randomly chosen by random.org and then notified by email. Winner will have 24 hours to respond. If no winner responds, a new winner will be chosen. Must be 18 years or older to enter. Gift collections will only be shipped within the continental United States, with more information here.
Good luck friends.
