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…

    The best part of Christmas is laying under the tree where no one can find you and you can even take a nap if you want. The lights and glow from the ornaments look so cool from down there. Plus, it makes everone wonder what you’re doing (when you’re an adult… I never got caught as a kid).

    LAMP ME…please!
    My favorite holiday lights are outside house lights. They make me happy when I drive up to our house.
    also why are lamps in general so expensive? I dont get it.
    Happy holidays!

    LAMP ME!

    I love white Christmas lights all over the trees and lining windows and doorways. It makes the house so cozy at Christmas time.

    LAMP ME!

    I love our new Modern Drum Shade Pendant that we just got for the our dining room! Such a nice change from the outdated chandelier!

    LAMP ME!

    I love the good, ol’ fashioned big colored lights. My parents used to outline an old rusty tractor in them that sits in their yard in the country. It was one of my favorite things growing up.

    LAMP ME! I love colored lights, but am so disappointed with the LED ones…it’s like their missing a good yellow or something, and look so cold and depressing to me!

    Lamp me!

    My favorite “holiday light” is the beautiful south Florida palm trees wrapped in string lights nearly everywhere :)

    Lamp me!
    Since we don’t have a fireplace, I usually settle for the glow of a single yummy-smelling candle on our kitchen table.
