December Giveaway (Week 4): 2017 Gratitude Kit

Gratitude Giveaway via


Karen L.



My final December giveaway is here!

One of my personal 2017 New Year resolutions is to practice daily gratitude. This may sound simple, but I think it is a resolution we all should commit to. Having worked an entire year as a nurse in the Emergency Department, I have seen how fragile life is and have become ashamed of moments when I took everything I have for granted. I think we all can admit to such moments. When we become stressed, we tend to focus on the negatives and forget to look at the big picture. That is why I decided to create a little “Gratitude Kit” for my final December giveaway. I hope these products will help one lucky winner remember to cherish his/her life and make gratitude part of his/her daily routine!

This giveaway features two of my favorite brands: May Designs & MantraBand.

December Giveaway Announcement!

Happy December to all my Smell the Roses readers!

December is the month of giving so I knew I had to do something special for this month’s giveaway. While struggling to narrow down all my ideas to just one, it dawned on me.. why do just 1 giveaway!?

I am excited to announce I will be hosting a new giveaway each week for the month of December!

With 2017 right around the corner, I thought it would be fun for each giveaway to be focused on some of my new year resolutions:

Week 1 (Dec 4-10): Clean/Green Home 🏠

  • I am a firm believer that you need to have a clean home to have a clear mind. My goal for 2017 is to clean my house using all green/natural products. This giveaway will be a couple of my new favorite household essentials!

Week 2 (Dec 11-17): Planning 📆

  • If you read my 2017 Planner Post, you know I am a big advocate for a paper planner. However, since graduating college and starting my big girl job, I haven’t used my paper planner as much as I would have liked. One of my goals for next year is to bring back my old planning habits (stickers and all)! This giveaway will be for a few of my planning essentials!

Week 3 (Dec 18-24): Health/Fitness 💪

  • Okay, okay, I know its cliche but I am really determined to step up my workouts and take full control of my health this coming year. This past year has taught me how hard it is to motivate yourself to go to the gym. If you’re in the same boat as me, don’t worry – this giveaway has you covered to kick start your new health/fitness routine!

Week 4 (Dec 25-31): Gratitude 😌

  • I think we can all admit we sometimes take our lives for granted. We get caught up things that we shouldn’t and complain more than we should. I don’t know if it’s been this past year working in the ER or if it was something else, but I have realized I take a lot for granted and need to appreciate all the beautiful things in my life. I think we all could benefit from doing that. My biggest goal for 2017 is to practice daily gratitude. This giveaway will help with just that!
Items included in each giveaway won’t be announced until that giveaway launches (we have to keep some element of surprise 😉)! As always, each giveaway will be run through a plugin on each corresponding blog post here on the blog.
Don’t miss out on the giveaway announcements! Make sure you are following my social media accounts:

I hope you’re all as excited as I am! Stay tuned!
