xmas giveaway Win! Tis the season for sharing and giving and thinking of someone special

It’s almost Christmas and I thought it’s a nice time to resurrect my favourite blog tradition – giving the gift of Christmas. This is where I give the gifts but you don’t get to want them for yourself. Oh no, you have to pick someone you want me to send the gift to!

Let’s just call me Santa PB yes? icon biggrin Win! Tis the season for sharing and giving and thinking of someone special

So here’s how you participate in this final giveaway on MWS for this year. It’s also a good time to tell you that some things have happened recently that have me rethink this whole giveaway thing so things are a-changing around here in the coming year(s). Let’s just say that a couple of bad apples do spoil the barrel and whilst I realise it shouldn’t bother me, it does. I’m human and I get mad about things like seeing people sell items they won in my giveaways as brand new items. Bugs the hell out of me because I know someone else would have appreciated it more. So. I digress. Let’s use the apples to make cider or something eh? icon razz Win! Tis the season for sharing and giving and thinking of someone special

But that’s later. This is now. Here’s how you gift a gift of Christmas to someone special.

This Giveaway is essentially a chance for you to pick someone to whom you’d like a surprise gift to be sent. I’ll send your recipient a little beauty gift pack comprising a selection of the items I’ve picked below, with a note so they know who sent it to them, and who’s thinking of them.

ha, I know she reads this blog but anyways, I want to send the gift of christmas to dom of belledemoiselle, one of my besties. I know she’s been powering through a difficult year and I’m super proud of her and miss her, and she’ll definitely love some of the products in the photo!

ina yorendra December 16, 2013 at 9:18 am

Thank you PB. I want to send it to my sis who since decided to be full time mom doesnt have extra to spend on her. It might be a boost to start taking care of herself.

Ping December 16, 2013 at 9:38 am

Hi Santa Paris,
I would like to have my bestie Stella to receive this gift. She needs lots of love as it is a difficult time for her at the moment (her family, relationship, health, trying to get a roof over her and mum’s heads). Just a surprise gift to let her know that she is loved!

fanny December 16, 2013 at 10:15 am

Santa Paris, I would like to give this x’mas gift to my best friend Julie to thank you her for doing all the things a real best friend does, thank you her for always knowing who I am and for being genuinely concerned with the outcome of my life and always listening, even when tired.

i want to sent a gift to my best friend Andrea, she moved to a new city for her job, and i miss her so much.

Angel December 16, 2013 at 10:51 am

I would like to send a Christmas gift to my best friend who happens to be my sister. Although we do quarrel and fight a lot (despite of getting older), she will always try to be there if I need someone to. I want to remind her how much her presence is treasured and loved (aside from being annoying sometimes).

I would like to send the gifts to my mum, who’s an awesome person and who has single-handed raised me and my brother up. Winning the gifts would be a great surprise to her as she doesn’t spend the money to pamper herself.

Anna December 16, 2013 at 11:12 am

I’d love to share this with my best friend because she has been so good to me in our years of friendship. This is the least I could do!

Wong Lai Heng December 16, 2013 at 11:16 am

Dear Santa PB,

I would like to send the gift to my dearest mommy who brought me into the world; to love me unconditionally and to care about me without limit. It’s time for me to take care of my mommy and to give her the best :)

Parita December 16, 2013 at 11:26 am

I’d love to send a gift to one of my closest friends Mei Yee. We’ve been friends for over 20 years (eek!) and really don’t see enough of each other as she lives in KL and me in Pg. I know she’d love to have new makeup and skincare items to play around with!

Thanks Santa PB for such a great christmas giveaway :)

I would like to send the gift to my sister as besides as a sister, she also is my good friend as she know well about me.

Jarucha December 16, 2013 at 1:23 pm

This is a generous giveaway — I would like to send this gift to my mom. My mom doesn’t spend much on herself and it would be a lovely treat for her.

Thank you!

Cheryl December 16, 2013 at 1:38 pm

This is so thoughtful of you :) I would like to send the gift to my dearest Mom, who tirelessly takes care of of the family, willingly!!. She is super mom 24-7 and this would be a nice unexpected treat!

sataa December 16, 2013 at 2:10 pm

I want to send this gift pack to my mom I am not a person who is good at expressing feelings through words but I will try to explain why I want to give this to her one reason is her birthday is on 29th of December so it will be like a nice birthday surprise for her apart from the few things I got for her as her birthday present.Second reason is my mom is one of those moms who always put her children as her first priority if she has some extra money instead of spending it on her she would buy things for me or my brothers and I see high end skin care products like Clinique, Keihl’s and Sheiseido in the gift pack and I think a wonderful mom like her deserves some pampering and high end stuff because SHE IS THE BEST and she totally deserves every good thing in the world
Thanks xx

serene December 16, 2013 at 2:15 pm

I would like to gift to my mum. Because I hope to share with her how I feel to look good and hope that she will be too.

Thank you for the giveaway

I wish to send this gift pack to my eldest sis who is currently working in japan. She’s living on her own so she really have no clue on how to do makeup on herself. She’s a researcher in a medical field so she seldom have friends who do makeup, but i really hope she could do something to feel more confident of herself . I hope this opportunity you give will be a good birthday present for her :D (her birthday is on the 25th though).

Dear Santa PB,

I want to send this gift to my mom as she deserve it ;)


December 16, 2013 at 3:21 pm

Hi ParisB!
I would like to send this gift pack for my sister to remind her that she is beautiful, always. She’s been complaining how she can’t wear sexy, lacy bras now that she’s pregnant.
Merry, jolly holiday to you!

Joann December 16, 2013 at 3:26 pm

I would want this package to be sent to my mother. These past few months, I have been so focused on myself and my studies I did not realize nor fully appreciate how much she does for me. How patient she is with me. My mother is in her 60s now, she’s still working alongside my father to help support the family. Both of them put food on the table for me, and when my mother knows I am studying for a test, she will do the dishes, clean the house (whatever chores I usually have to do) I am so appreciative of my mother and father, and everything they do for me. My mom is not one to spoil herself, as she is one to give to others. She will spend money on clothes for her nephew, but nothing for herself. This year, I want her to be spoiled this year. She 110% deserves it.

Anusha December 16, 2013 at 4:04 pm

Ah i am sorry for the bad experience you had paris. Disappointing indeed.I cant say about everyone but most of us truly respect you and your generous heart.Goodies or no goodies your blog is special to us :)
I would love to send it to my gorgeous Grandma.I have such fond memories of times spent with my Grandma, and in particular Christmas time. Looking back on Christmas as a child, I can now see that my Grandma made sure it was always extra special! , all of her delicious baked goods, specially. She really has put in a lot of effort to make my Christmases special over the years, and I think it is definitely time that I put in the effort to make sure hers is just as special!And what could be a more special Christmas gift for grandma than this Chock full of products to keep the skin hydrated and to keep the dreaded ageing process at bay! The real cherry on top is the inclusion of the love note.

Jaime December 16, 2013 at 4:15 pm

Hi Santarina PB, I would love to send these lovely gifts to my sister who is always been so lovely supporting and big hearted !:) although I have already given her a small present , another surprise is always welcome !

Toby December 16, 2013 at 10:12 pm

I want to send the gift to my girlfriend because I know she reads your blog everyday and as a guy I am clueless on skincare/cosmetics products, so I wouldn’t know what to personally handpick for her but I know that she has a wish to own and try on luxurious products that are otherwise too expensive for her to buy. I think this gift would be perfect for her to get started with!

Conny December 16, 2013 at 10:27 pm

First off – I totally understand why that made you upset. I too have once hosted a give away and then the lucky winner gave ist all away (it was a set of 4 nail polishes). I mean… why even participate if you don´t like that whole package?

That said – I´d love my mom to get this set. She has not used make-up for a loooong time (meaning the 26 years from my birth to now) and just recently really got into it through me. I really want her to have some nice classy basics that she can pull off easily. I think those items on the picture would be perfect.

have a nice day~
