  88. This assortment of gifts is perfect for the most important persons in my life. Unable to afford to give gifts other than a few self-made trinkets, I would love to be able to give these to my loved ones who would greatly appreciate them.

  89. I would give this exceptionally fine variety of gifts to the single parent mothers whom I work with. It is a financial struggle for them raising children, working, and trying to improve themselves by attending school. They usually put themselves last and are always stretching their dollars to buy the necessities. This would be a way to show them that they are thought of and cherished for the sacrifices that they are making. Selma

  90. It was going to be hard to afford gifts this year and this way I could surprise so many people, I might have to resort to Dollar store gifts!

  91. Am I missing something? I don’t actually see the guide. Judging by the main picture, though, I see some good ideas. I love that you can get such specific gift cards these days as it allows you to personalize without getting the wrong size, color, etc. I also think flowers are under-appreciated for occasions of any kind.

  92. Since losing my job a year ago we have had to reduce our spending to almost nothing when it comes to holiday celebrations. Winning this package would allow me to celebrate holidays, birthdays, etc. with small gifts of appreciation. Several of our friends have come through to help us while we are down. This would allow us to say thank you.

  93. The gifts in this collection would be appreciated by most anyone in my family. It would allow me to send something special to everyone on my Christmas list this year. I’d be able to connect with friends and family whom I haven’t heard from in more than a few years. Merry Christmas!

  94. There is something here for everyone whether it’s family, friend, boss/co-worker or myself, of course. Someone is going to have a GREAT Christmas!

  95. Great ideas! FUN FUN FUN!

  96. looks like this would cover everyone! yeah!

  97. A great group of gifts to give or receive!!

  98. Last-minute or not, these are great gifts for anyone!

  99. I could give them to anyone on my list and they’d love them.

  100. Wonderful, I’m in.

  101. This is a great list of Last Minute or have on hand gifts. Would not have thought of the towels, what a great idea!!! Merry Christmas LHJ!!!!

  102. So many people to buy for & so little money. This would be a great way to help out a single mom.

  103. Wow! This would be a little something for everyone on my list. I really can’t plan to buy for anyone because money is so tight, so this would be a great surprise, even a little something for me.

  104. I can’t afford any gifts this year, but I would love to win this just so I could give a few gifts to family and friends.

  129. Modern Family – my absolute favorite show! I can’t get enough of it! I can already pick out who would get each gift, and which would be for me! :)

  130. The first thing to catch my eye was the episodes of Modern Family. I love that show and all it represents about acceptance and love. Then…….my eye traveled to the plush towels. Who doesn’t love a big, soft towel?

  131. If I should be fortunate enough to win, I would give away to friends and family almost all of the great gifts. (I might keep for myself the beautiful bouquet.)

  132. Gift cards are always an appreciated gift. :)
