$55 Gift Code Giveaway to CSN Stores

Giveaway is CLOSED. Congratulations to Annalene!


It's Christmas Time! That means we all have lots of ideas dancing around with our Sugar Plums. So much planning, decorating, shopping.... all to get ready for, what I consider to be, the greatest time of year.

We are a mere 9 days and a wake-up from Christmas. Are you ready? The gifts bought, presents wrapped, menu planned....? Are you procrastinating and hoping for a little 'push' to get you off the couch and into the spirit?

Funny how, as we get older, it sometimes becomes a job, if we let it. We forget to enjoy this wonderful time of year. We forget the spirit of giving..... and receiving.


Our children can rattle off a list a mile long without taking a breath but US, no way. We expect everyone to just naturally know what we want, right? Especially spouses and significant others. How rude that they are asking what we want! I mean, I can go into any store or on any website and find thousands of things to buy for my Boyfriend but he asks, every year. I will say, this year, I gave in to his inquiries. But, in my defense, I only did so because he is doing a job out in Connecticut and is going to be lucky to even make it home for Christmas. (This is whole new story that I will not put you through. Suffice it to say that I will be very 'upset' if he can't come home.)

So.... what do I want? Seriously, it took me a bit to to make him a list. I'm not very 'needy'. I really don't ask for much. This was hard for me. I finally listed a few things that I wouldn't mind having but, at the top of my list, was a new TV stand. Last year for Christmas, this sweet man got me a 42" LG LED Flat Screen TV and a Blu-Ray disc player for Christmas.... ALL ON HIS OWN! Proof that he really doesn't need my help to shop for me. Also proof that he's a lot more generous with his money than I am.

I was kind enough to even locate a few suggestions for him from CSN. They have a nice selection of  TV stands for flat screens.

This is what I dream of having but it's a bit out of my price range and no way I would let him get this. Isn't it nice though?


Pretty!

But, I suggested more along this line. Which I really like.


This one is in the same size category as the really expensive one but looks a little retro and much cheaper.


So, I guess I have to wait and see what I get. He may go with this suggestion or one of the others. I ended up with about 6 things on my list. Of course, with Ollie, I could get something totally different. I mean, he asks what I want each year and this is only the first time in 5 1/2 years that I've given him a suggestion, so you just never know with him. I do know that it will be great and very much appreciated. He's my love and all I really want is for him to come home.

Now, to you! CSN wants to give one of you a Gift Code for $55 that can be used at any of their stores. How did you get this gift code? By doing this:
