Fab Freebie: Christmas Lights

***This giveaway is no longer accepting entries – see who won below!***

This week’s early Christmas present is going to… Nancy (who says she “could certainly use some new lighting” and her favorite holiday glow “has to be my fireplace.”) Congrats Nancy!

As much as we love holiday lights, indoor lighting is something that you stare at every day of the year. So if you don’t love your lighting situation, this is one way to “dude, get on that” without spending any cash. See, recently we were voted one of Lamps Plus’ top home blogs of 2012 (how flattering!) and it came with a $500 shopping spree prize… but you know we don’t take freebies or swag, so the folks at Lamps Plus kindly agreed that we could pass that $500 credit to one of you! We’ve been fans of theirs for a while now since they seem to have about a million options (their chandeliers even popped up in our book a few times) so this week’s winner should have no trouble finding something to spend their light-loot on if they win.

  • PRIZE: $500 to spend at Lamps Plus.com
  • TO ENTER: Comment on this post with the words “LAMP ME!” and tell us…
  • BONUS QUESTION: …your favorite type of holiday light. Do you love the white glimmer of a Christmas tree in your living room? The over-the-top glow of a house decked out in colorful bulbs on every surface? Or the warm crackle of a fire in your fireplace?
  • GIVEAWAY CLOSES: Wednesday, Dec 19th at 8pm EST or at 10,000 entries (whichever comes first)
  • PRIZE SHIPS: We always beg every vendor to ship internationally but some companies are not able to vend things beyond the US – more on that here. This giveaway is open to the United States.
  • USUAL STUFF: One entry per e-mail address is permitted. The winner will be selected using random.org and announced on Thursday as an update to this post. That’s right, come right back here on Thursday for the announcement of our winner. Good luck…

    LAMP ME!

    I like those big giant old outdoor Christmas lights that get so hot they’ll melt ya’! (I don’t like the melting part, but those lights are still the prettiest to me.)

    I love lamp.

    LAMP ME!!

    My favorite lights are the old school big colored bulbs and I also love plain white lights on a real Christmas tree!

    LAMP ME!

    Classic white twinkle lights are my favorite for my own house. But I love looking at the BIG old school colored lights on some houses.

    LAMP ME!!! I love white lights but my husband wants colored lights. For 23 years we had colored lights at Christmas. But this year, we have white light inside and colored lights on the front porch and bushes. Compromising has brought us to our 24th wedding anniversary on New Years Eve!!!!
