Pre-Christmas Giveaway | Yankee Candle Advent Calendar
The season of giving is almost upon us and I don’t think you guys realise just how much I really truly appreciate you for reading, commenting and following my blog – I love you all so much! It has also been a while since my last giveaway so I thought I’d do a little Pre-Christmas Giveaway.

I’m giving away a Yankee Candle Advent Calendar because as soon as I spotted it I knew it would be something I’d enjoy opening each day in the build up to Christmas and I hope the lucky winner feels the same way! I mean, who doesn’t like a Yankee Candle or 5? (or in this case 24!).

Hidden behind each door of the Yankee Candle Advent Calendar is a tealight candle in a seasonal scent such as Christmas Memories, Angels Wings, Cinnamon Stick, Icicles, Christmas Garland, Snowflake Cookie and Christmas Eve. There is also an extra treat on day 24!

The giveaway will end on the 25th of November giving me enough time to post the advent calendar to the lucky winner to arrive before the 1st of December.

Thank you for participating and Good Luck!
