BONUS Eight Days of Hanukkah Giveaway :) $25 Whole Foods Gift Card!

I tricked you all! I made it sound like yesterday's post was the last one in the Eight Days of Hanukkah Giveaway posts, but it wasn't!! You have one more chance to win a fun gift. This one is a $25 gift card from Whole Foods!

This card is limited edition, and not only is it really pretty, but it's made from sustainably harvested birch wood. Did you know birches are some of my favorite trees? They remind me of growing up in Russia.



This is a season of getting together with friends and family, hosting parties, and being invited to friends' houses. I thought it'd be fun to discuss what you can get with $25 at Whole Foods as a hostess gift!

Here are some of my ideas:
  • an orchid and a few bars of chocolate
  • 2-3 bottles of wine from different countries
  • a selection of soaps and candles
  • a basket full of clementines and a few pomegranates
  • a Christmas tree (okay...maybe that's not a stellar idea)
 Or, you can do a Morning After gift: something your hosts can use after throwing a party. Who would not love a mimosa with fresh fruit and piping hot scones?

All you need is a bottle of sparkling wine, a bottle of juice, a scone mix and a container of fresh fruit.

I decided to buy a bottle of prosecco, freshly squeezed grapefruit juice, a mix of lemon poppy scones (it only requires you to add water!), and a container of sweet strawberries. I know what you are thinking: it's winter and not strawberry season, but the berries were super sweet.



All this turned into this :)


Who would not love this?

1) You must ♥ gift cards!!
