Mother’s Day Giveaway’s 2008 Edition

By Melissa Summers

Last year I highlighted just a few of the many Mother’s Day giveaways around the internet. I thought I’d do another round this year so we all have a chance to get something for nothing.

Gabrielle at Design Mom is running a full week of Mother’s Day giveaways at her site. She did the same last year and this year will be, according to reports, twice as big. So far, as of Tuesday, she’s giving away this lovely necklace, a party pack from CocoBlu Studio, a gift basket from Nest Gift Baskets and two beautiful dresses from Shabby Apple (love these dresses). These giveaways end today May 6 at 2pm so hurry and enter.

cmpmdgg08horiz.gif Cool Mom Picks has their handy Mother’s Day Gift Guide running again this year. To enter, simply paste the Cool Mom’s Picks Mother’s Day Gift Guide Logo onto your blog and email the editors to let them know where they can find it and you’re entered. They’ll announce the winner of a $200 gift certificate to TJ & Co. keepsake jewelry and another $200 in organic body care products from Earth Mama Angel Baby, on May 11th.

portraitmom.jpgWindows Live is running a Portraits Of Mom photo contest. You can win a photo printer, a Canon Power Shot camera and an all in one photo printer and, maybe even the Grand Prize: a camcorder, a laptop computer and a family trip with a photo session with a professional photographer. Entering is a little more complex, post a photo of your Mom to your Window’s Live space, get your friend’s and family to vote for it, and win daily, weekly or the grand prize.

alphamomgiveaway.jpgHere at Alpha Mom we’re running a giveaway, and though it’s not Mother’s Day specific, you should enter. You can win a Jeep Gear prize package (stroller, carrier and diaper bag) worth $220. Simply answer a few questions and voila! You’re entered.

I have to admit I had no idea Mother’s Day was this weekend. Time continues to slip past me. I hope you and yours have a wonderful day full of whatever you love to celebrate with. Personally, I like quiet time in my own house followed by a dinner with family. (Though a dress from Shabby Apple would be lovely too.)

Happy Mother’s Day!

Thanks for including us Melissa and happy mother’s day to you too. Hope you get that Shabby Apple dress and a night off for which to wear it.


Melissa, you are way to young and cute to be wearing those dresses. They are lovely, but for a more matronly set.
