Giveaway: Ikea [A labor of love]

It's giveaway time! This is my birthday month so I am bringing you four giveaways! It's going to be a great month. I wanted to start off with giving you guys a labor of love. Because I do love you! I genuinely care about my readers and have met some amazing friends through blogging. 

I was brainstorming giveaway ideas, thinking - if I were my reader, what would I want? And I remembered pining for Ikea goods back when I lived in a small town. I know many of you do not live in/near a city big enough to have an Ikea. SO. I am going to make a trip to Ikea for you! It's not completely altruistic because I am eyeballing all of those goodies you see up there. Here are the details:

- You have a $25 budget - you can get anything you want within that budget (that isn't too big to ship)!
- I am covering shipping costs.
- Here's why it is a labor of love: It's a one hour drive one-way for me & I don't know if you have ever 
  been in an Ikea, but it is Crowd Level: Insane.
- Because I love you, if you want to throw in more money so I can get more stuff for you, I will 
  definitely do that. 
- If you already live near an Ikea, I will send you a $25 Ikea gift card!

Guess what? Everything in that image above is under $20. In fact, you could get several of those things and still be within your budget. I love Ikea!! Who's excited?! *Please read the fine print in the Rafflecopter widget!

Oh my how generous! I was literly JUST on the ikea website looking at those very table cloths! They are so beautiful although I don't think anyone could say no to the cookie cutters right?
Big Love. Fizz xxx

Yep, Tabetha - you can get anything within your $25 budget provided it isn't too difficult to ship.

The closest Ikea to my house is 4 hours away. Last time I was there, I saw some cute planters that I've been kicking myself ever since for not buying. Great giveaway!

Whitney Elise September 11, 2012 at 2:27 PM  

I have not been over to look at Ikea online lately.. but I have only been to Ikea one time in my life.. It was a few months ago! I'm pretty sure that even If I am not eyeing anything right now... I can find something amazing! I am actually loving the cookie cutters up in the picture!

Kelly September 11, 2012 at 3:14 PM  

For me, an Ikea trip takes the better part of a day. An hour to get there, about 4 hours there and then an hour back. Love that place!

Luisa Abrahamson September 11, 2012 at 4:27 PM  

I'm a BIG fan of Ikea!..so everything!! :)
