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!

Each one of you can enter five times, and each entry requires a separate comment. Make sure to leave a name or email address in your comments so I know who you are! Please note, this giveaway is only for residents of the U.S. 18 and older. You can enter by doing any (or all) of the following:
