Final Christmas Giveaway: 4 Laura Numeroff Books!



Our final giveaway for 2009 has arrived and you won't want to miss out on having these books under the tree for your little ones! If you're like us...a new book is as much fun for the child as it is for the parent (and 4 new books is even better!) The "if you give....books" are for ages 3-7 years old and are fun to read over and over again! Kids also love the illustrations by Felicia Bond!

To enter this giveaway just leave a comment and answer this question:

What is the best gift you are giving this year? Is it what your kids (or husband) have been begging you for? Is it homemade? Is it a service?

The best book I'm giving is a beautiful family tree to my in-laws. They LOVE genealogy and this is a family tree with many generations that looks very artistic. Sort of homemade but also very thoughtful and sentimental. I LOVE the "if you give...." books - and so do my kids! :)

The best gift we're giving is to my brother, sister-in-law, niece, and nephew - of course! :) Actually, we had a good time selecting gifts for a family in need this Christmas. Our son was very excited to get a pair of church shoes for a little boy and a dress for a little girl.

Becca Jane said...

I am giving my son some more accessories to Thomas the Train. He is sooo excited, and I can't wait to see his face on Christmas morning.

Jane said...

My sister and I had these little accordian albums made for our parents with pictures of their grandkids inside so they can have them with them always.

I think the most exciting gift I am giving this year is to my sister. I NEVER pay full price for much of anything and this year I sold enough "stuff" on craigslist to buy her a Christmas (pottery barn kids) advent calendar (free shipping). She has had a rough last few years with her husband's severe medical issues so they don't have a lot of money. She loves to decorate for the holidays and I feel this will be a great addition to her Christmas collection. She will never guess it so I can't wait to see what she thinks when she opens it.

kristenita said...

Awesome giveaway!! I love these books.

The best gift this year is a photo calendar for my parents... Filled with pix of the kids & grandkids & totally personalized for them! I wish I could be there to see them open it. :)

The best book I am giving away is a fun little drum to my little boy. He loves loves loves musics and noise and despite many warnings, I think a drum is the perfect gift for him.

Nancye said...

The best gift I will be giving this year is an IPOD Touch to my 14 year old son. He has been wanting on forever! He will be VERY happy!!

My husband and I are flying our family from Utah back home to Pennsylvania see all the grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends this Christmas season. When it comes down to it, spending time with loved ones we don't see very often is the best part of Christmas. Pray that the flight is quick and peaceful...flying 5 hours with a toddler is always scary!
Merry Christmas!

ChristinaAileen said...

The best gift I am giving this year.. well, gifts - my daughter and son are both getting guitars (so they can play with daddy) and they are going to be so excited!

I bought someone's Star Wars collection off of Craiglist. There are enough space ships and figures to keep both my boys happy for a really long time.

Nonna Beach said...

My Mom is very hard to buy for and never buys any pretty P.J.'s, nightgowns or bathrobes for herself so I'm sending her a package chock full of all the stuff she won't treat herself to.

We have 7 grandchildren who love books and love to read so these wonderful books would be great to give them for Christmas !

Lainey's Mom said...

I made ornaments using my favorite photos from this year and am giving them to my children's birthparents and grandparents. I kept a few for our tree and my 2 1/2 year old loves looking at the tree and pointing out herself, Daddy, her brother, etc. It really personalized our tree for me. I gave a set of 8 to my mother in law as an early Christmas gift this weekend and she cried so I think I'll do it every year.

The best gift I am giving is a personalized travel journal for my in-laws upcoming cruise. I bought a basic scrapbook and am designing the pages with places for them to put pictures and write about their trip. I also am giving them some fun travel luggage tags and I made them shoe bags, a nice little luxury so that your shoes don't get scuffed or your clothes dirty.

Vanessa said...

This year I am trying to sew some of my gifts to people. I am attempting a colorful frilly ruffly apron for my sister in law. I'm excited to see what it looks like when it's done. :)

Lynette said...

The best gift I am giving this year is a special pair of earrings for my mom. She had a pair like them that were her favorites, and they got lost. She was so upset. I can't believe I found a replacement pair!
(hey are handmade by a women's cooperative in Guatemala)
I love all Laura Numeroff's books!

I think the best gift I'm giving is a shark vacuum for my mom...her whole house is tile and she's always having to sweep! This will save her a lot of hard work!

Bridget said...

The best thing I'm giving this year is a workout shirt to my husband that I made that says "tough love". It sounds ridiculous, but I know that he's going to think it's hilarious because he is a workout addict and loves to whip his brothers into shape.

I have a button!

Chalece said...

The gift I'm most excited for is a big dollhouse for my daughter. She keeps saying she wants to ask Santa Claus for a dollhouse and a baby. Yeah!

oh how I love the holidays and giving!!!! Every year we choose a family that needs more than we do! And Mykl is 4 this year so it is more meaningful to her and she has loved this tradition!!!!

Jenny said...

I am excited to give my mom a framed picture of all her grandsons. We got one secretly taken with matching shirts she gave them. I think she will be shocked considering the boys live a couple hundred miles from each other.

Natalie said...

We're getting my dad a large magnetic board to put the pictures of the grandkids on so he'll stop tucking them into the frames of other photos we've already given him. ;)

Steven said...

Rachel said...

I finally finished a really cool fleece throw for my sister, but I think the best gift this year is the pair of pink sparkly high heels I found a yard sale. My sister loves shoes, and adores girly things. :)
