Christmas is three weeks away and Hanukkah is even sooner, so the coming days will be busy for all of us. After all of the shopping and wrapping, baking and hosting, card writing, hall-decking, mailing and gifting, I’ll be ready for a little pampering. How about you?
That’s just what I thought! I put together some goodies just for you, and one lucky winner will get to indulge. Gingerbread is the fragrance of choice for our Holiday Giveaway 2011, decided on Facebook and Twitter (beating Candy Cane by only one vote).
This Gingerbread Pedicure Gift is truly special! I’ve included a big jar of Gingerbread Foot Soak (with a pretty wooden scoop) for a relaxing soak, and Sugar Scrub for gentle exfoliation. The red tippy-toe towels will help to prepare your toes for the silky moisturizing of your Gingerbread Foot Cream. The Gingerbread Body Lotion will give you all over yumminess, while the Gingerbread Lip Balm lends just a kiss of sugar and spice.
For those of you who were looking forward to peppermint, I added a Peppermint Stick lip balm, and some Ghirardelli Peppermint bark to enjoy while you relax (I’ll tuck in a few other goodies, too). You can even finish up your pedicure by slipping on these adorable holiday gingerbread boy socks! (I told you I was pampering you!)
This whole set is wrapped up in a cute gingerbread holiday box in cello with a ribbon and gift tag (if you should decide to give it away, though why would you do a silly thing like that?!). It would retail for over $70, but it’s a one-of-a-kind, and the only way to get it is to enter below!

My sister lives in Germany so always at Christmas time she will send us Lebkuchen. Lebkuchen is a traditional German baked Christmas treat, resembling gingerbread. It was first baked in 1296 in Germany. We love them you can get them in chocolate, almond, plain, etc.
Love gingerbread cookies! Growing up though, Christmas was always the time Mom made “special” cookies – pizzelles! They’re delicate, lacy Italian cookies that are made two at a time on a pizzelle iron. Very time consuming but oh, so worth it! Mary Parker email@example.com

we never did gingerbread houses when we were kids so now I love to be able to grab my nieces and nephews and decorate. We did have gingerbread cookies for Santa though 🙂

I much prefer a sugar cookie. My best friend begs me to make her some every year. I think they’re so tasty because I frost them with homemade buttercream (my mother’s recipe)!

I have many, many fond memories of decorating gingerbread cookies with my mom and my sister…with goopy frosting colored pink and green, the obligatory cinnamon red hot candies for Rudolph’s nose (and buttons on the snowman!) and LOTS of colored sugar that turned our fingers red and green. We had an awesome collection of cookie cutters including Santa’s sleigh, a plastic candy cane cutter that the dough always got stuck in, angels and partridges and jingle bells and wreaths. I’m sure we made quite a mess, but it was fun to get creative and laugh and listen to our favorite Christmas songs (on vinyl records, no less!) That smell of cloves and cinnamon and molasses always makes me feel like a kid again.
My favorite Gingerbread story is that I am in love with the smell of Gingerbread Spice Cake Candles!! My all time favorite!!
