Sweet Gift Card Giveaway Plus Cookies!! (An Early Valentine's Day Giveaway)


I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and is ready for an exciting new year! I am happy to get the year started with a fun new giveaway that will help with grocery shopping,, bring some yummy treats your way (just in time for Valentine's Day!) and  make sharing these treats and new memories easy-peasy!


Betty Crocker, GladWare® and the Safeway Family of Stores, wants to keep the warmth and spirit of the holidays going in homes everywhere all year long. And so they have decided to give one lucky reader of HHF a wonderful gift basket that includes a $25 gift card for shopping at Safeway, Dominick’s, Tom Thumb, Randalls, Vons, and/or Genuardi’s, plus a package of Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix, a GladWare sample pack. Perfect for baking some yummy Valentine's Day cookies!!


We received a gift pack ourselves for review. Can I just gush about how excited I get over new storage containers-- and the new GladWare I received just had me grinning from ear to ear. Really--just ask the hubby! Of course my kids wanted to start baking cookies right away, and since our package arrived during Christmas week, we made some extra special cookies just for Santa! We saved some for our family's Christmas Eve party as well, where I happily put my new GladWare to good use (Grinning!)

  1. My favorite memory was spending Christmas Eve at my father's house - my mother passed away 2 years ago and we really cherish the time we spend with my dad at the house. We can still feel mom with us (and can hear her telling us that we did Christmas Eve dinner wrong! LOL).

  2. My favorite memory from the holiday season is when I sprayed my three kids with Silly String thinking that it would be fun, and they ran screaming from the room, horrified and appalled. We had to stop the camcorder, because it took a long time to convince them that I wouldn't do it again. Who knew that Silly String was a torture device?

  165. We had Christmas Eve dinner at my cousin's new home. After dinner, we all gathered round the tree to open presents. When someone grabbed a present a tiny mouse came blasting out of the presents and ran across the living room! All the women were screaming and climing on the couch and chairs! The men yelped and then decided to put together a safari hunt to get the mouse! lol!!! It was hilarious! lmbo!! ;)
