    Yankee Candle Advent Calendar Giveaway


    YC giveaway

    Have I got a fantastic giveaway for you? I am so excited for Christmas this year, it’s only 8 weeks today until Christmas Eve so whilst it’s creeping up on us already, there’s plenty of time to get the presents sorted and make some plans to make Christmas magical for yourself and your family.

    This year Little Mr is going to be so excited. He finds joy and amusement in pretty much everything these days so his little face over the Christmas period is going to be absolutely priceless. We’ve got a few things planned already for December and I cannot wait to see his reaction on Christmas morning when he sees a pile of presents with his name on. It’s all so very exciting.

    When I return to work on Tuesday, my friend and I will be making our annual ‘days left at work’ countdown. We’ve been doing it for a few years now and it’s great to see the days being crossed off as the days are done. This year, I’ve bought Little Mr a jigsaw advent calendar as I don’t really want him to have chocolate every day as it send him a bit too hyper (and he doesn’t know about the chocolate advent calendars yet but I’m not sure how long I’ll keep that a secret!) so a nice jigsaw calendar will keep him intrigued.

    The giveaway I’ve got for you today is brilliant. You can win your very own Yankee Candle Advent Calendar. Each day you’ll get a tealight candle to light in one of the six seasonal scents; Icicles, Angel’s Wings, Snowflake Cookie, Cranberry Ice, Christmas Cookie™ and Christmas Garland. All you need to do is enter the rafflecopter below and you’ll be in with a chance of winning this fantastic advent calendar worth £22.

    The giveaway ends at midnight on Friday 21st November 2014 so that I can send the product onto the winner for the start of December. Good luck!
