Liz & Lisa’s Favorite Things Holiday Giveaway!

It’s that time of year again. Christmas carols are playing on the radio, tree farms have popped up everywhere and, let’s face it, we’re all thinking about what we want for the holidays.   We thought we’d help you out with that this year and share some of our favorite things with you.  Think Blackberries (not the fruit), eReaders and video cameras, to name a few. But because we’re feelin’ the holiday spirit in a BIG way, we figured we’d do more than share. How about if  we channel Oprah and GIVE our favorite things to you? (*cue applause, hysterical cheering & maybe someone can even faint?*)

All you have to do to be entered in Liz & Lisa’s Favorite Things Holiday Giveaway contest- and possibly win one of our favorite things below- is LEAVE A COMMENT HERE and like us on Facebook. And if you are a new fan, let us know in the comment that you leave here!  We love making new friends.

But here’s the BONUS: If you refer someone to leave a comment here on our site and they mention your name in their comment and tell us that they “liked” us on Facebook, you will be entered again! There’s no limit on the number of entries so refer away! The contest will run for over two weeks and we’ll choose the randomly selected winners on Friday, December 17th after 9:00 p.m. EST, when the contest closes.

And now… drum roll please..

    This will be a fantastic site, could you be interested in doing an interview regarding how you developed it? If so e-mail me!

  26. Cristina Landreneau

    You can never go wrong with groumet food and drink gift baskets – not with so many to choose from! If an elaborate, expensive champagne and caviar basket is outside your budget, go for simple with Shari’s Berries, or a single bottle of Dom Perignon with some chocolate dipped apricot. These combinations are far more affordable, but speak just as eloquently to your good taste, which people will want to associate themselves with.;-

    Have fun
