Win EVERY day!

On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…

No, not a Turtle Dove (where would I get one of those) but a whole Pear Tree full of terrific treats for you and all your family. But mainly you (we like you best). There’s the chance to win a prize every single day for the 12 days of Christmas (well, technically the 12 days of Christmas start on 25 Dec, but this is Muddy and we’re too darn excited to wait)! So starting today, Thursday 7 Dec, there’ll be a different prize each day up for grabs here on the blog – see my list below. And all you have to do to win is share on Facebook and Twitter. You are very welcome to enter for every single prize if you so wish…

To enter the competition, all you have to do is:

  • LIKE Muddy Stilettos Kent on Facebook, you MUST then leave a few words in the comment box so I can log your name and SHARE please
  • Or follow me and RT on Twitter
  • Or do both (you’ll double your chances).

Simple as that. I’ll draw a name out of my virtual hat and announce a winner every day at 10pm each evening.

So let’s see what’s inside my Santa’s sack…

1.  Hap-Pie Christmas Hamper, from British Fine Foods – worth £50, Thurs 7 Dec

The good people at British Fine Foods (who are the hamper supplier for Wimbledon, Ascot and the British Proms dontcha know) donated this luxury Hap-Pie Christmas Hamper. It contains a lovingly hand-made pie, using 100% British meat with only the finest ingredients in Lincolnshire. Also inside is Vintage Lancashire Bomb Cheese and Christmas Chutney and this tasty treat comes wrapped up in a cute boutique box.

2. Christmas Wreath from Sue Davies Flowers – worth £47, Fri 8 Dec

Have the best dressed door on your street, with this gorgeous display by Sutton Valence-based super florist Sue Davies Flowers who specialises in offering a unique personal service to clients who are arranging a wedding, celebration or any special occasion. What’s more, for three months of the year Sue’s florist store in The Old Butcher’s Shop, in the middle of the village turns into a perky, quirky Christmas pop up store – packed with gorgeous unique decorations – think wreaths, garlands, baubles, lights and ornaments of every kind. And this Christmas Wreath has been made up especially by Sue for today’s lucky winner. (N.B. the winner needs to be able to collect from Sutton Valence – gives you an excuse to browse the store!)

3. Family ticket, Ice Skating in the Park, Calverley Grounds, Tunbridge Wells – worth £44, Sat 9 Dec


Now this is something a bit fun and festive. You can snap up tickets for 4 (2 adults, 2 children) to slip-slide/skate/dazzle (delete as appropriate) on the popular pop up ice rink in Calverley Park. Read my review of it here.

4. Family of 4 tickets, Snow White, The Stag Theatre, Sevenoaks, 19 Dec, 5.30pm – worth £74, Sun 10 Dec

Going to the panto? Oh yes you are! Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, is at the Stag Theatre until 7 January 2018. And this year the famous face is one parents with CBBC-aged kiddies might well recognise, Ed Petrie, starring alongside legendary Bob Carolgee’s and Spit the Dog and Britain’s Got Talent semi finalist Danny Beard. The Sevenoaks show is always particularly good on the pop songs and dance routines and gets people grooving in the aisles (what, just me again?) Win family tickets (2 adults, 2 children) for the performance on 19 December at 5:30pm.

5. 12 Luxury Christmas Crackers, by Fraser & Parsley – worth £48, Mon 11 Dec

Win 12 luxury crackers, from gorgeous local designers Fraser & Parsley, all carefully hand crafted in England. The navy blue and white crackers depict a snowy white Christmas scene and are filled with super cute kitchen utensils (like a wooden mustard spoon, a handy salt scoop, a small lemon juicer, a tiny cookie cutter or a mini grater). There’s also a silver hat, a joke and a snippet of the Christmas story. Sweet and stylish.

6. Rixo Scarf, from The Clever Dresser boutique in Sevenoaks – worth £65, Tues 12 Dec

If you’ve never been to The Clever Dresser, located in the best shopping bit of Sevenoaks (down the little pedestrianised lanes on Bank Street). It’s a great little find and Sophie the owner is always on hand to give honest and great suggestions on what will work well on you (I never leave without a purchase – shucks she’s good). Sophie has donated this bang on trend what with the skinny scarf being the street style accessory of the moment. I want it, I want it! (Natch, she’s done it again)…

7. London Dry gin, Greensand Ridge – worth £35.50, Wed 13 Dec

This London Dry Gin is lovingly distilled from eight local botanicals that grow within a mile of the distillery in the fields, woods and orchards beneath the Greensand Ridge in Shipbourne, Kent. These are then married with seven carefully selected classic botanicals to create an exceptionally smooth and delicately balanced premium gin… Yeah, yadda yadda just give me a glass, right? Oh what’s that? I’m not allowed to enter? *sniff*.

8. Skating for family of 4, Riverhill Himalayan Gardens, Sevenoaks – worth £45, Thurs 14 Dec

Like to skate but don’t like the crowds? Or got little ones that might benefit from building up their confidence on a smaller rink? Then this might be a great option for you. The Riverhill at Christmas skating rink is small and perfectly formed at xxx, made of synthetic material (called glice not ice) that doesn’t get you wet if you fall. Better still, the drizzle won’t bother you as the skating takes place in a transparent marquee. This giveaway is for a Family ticket (2 adults and 2 children up to 16 years). Soak up the cute and Christmassy vibe at this lovely pop up rink then treat yourself to some well-earned refreshments in the Alpine Café & Bar that over-looks the rink. Skating aids are on hand should you need (£4). And so is mulled wine.

9. Zigzag cuffs and fleur georgette brooch from Antoine & Lili, Canterbury – worth £44, Fri 15 Dec

With everyone from Hush to The White Company bringing out a range of wristwarmers, this winter trend has been stolen from your granny and gone mainstream! These brightly coloured zigzag cuffs (£36) and pretty flower brooch (£8) are from the gorgeously colourful and quirky fashion boutique in Canterbury, Antoine & Lili (it’s a French boutique and this is the first store to hit the UK shores). Perfect for those that love a layering look and teamed with a cashmere sweater.

10. Silver Spotted Teardrop On Hoop Earrings from Catherine Hills Jewellery – worth £88, Sat 16 Dec

I think these might just be on my Christmas Wish List (you hear that, Mr Muddy?) – kindly donated by uber-talented Catherine Hills (if you haven’t come across this Kent jeweller before check her out – her stuff is stunning and original – big Muddy plus points in my book). Snaffle these Silver Spotted Teardrop On Hoop Earrings and keep them for yourself or give them as a gift (*snort* yeah, like you’re going to give these beauties away)!

11. You Are Loved Hand Poured Scented Candle from LoveInc – worth £27, Sun 17 Dec

Show someone you care this Christmas with this gorgeous Fig, White Musk & Amber scented candle from those lovely local purveyors of happiness for the home, LoveInc. Hand poured in the heart of Kent, each candle comes with a wooden lid that can double up as a stand/base to protect your surfaces. It comes packaged in a cute cotton drawstring bag, so perfect for gift giving (should you be feeling generous). A percentage from each candle goes to Barnardos – awwww – come on, it’s making me feel all tingly inside.

12. £200 to spend in store at new Kate Spade New York store, Bluewater, Mon 18 Dec

Now things are really getting exciting… kate spade new york (yup all lower case, ‘cos it’s that cool) – the iconic modern luxury accessory and lifestyle brand, has opened its first standalone store outside London in *insert drum roll here*… Kent’s very own Bluewater! You probably already heard about it here on Muddy as I’ve been banging on about it for weeks. Well the boutique, on the lower Guildhall (next to Coach and opposite Michael Kors) is packed with cute stylish clothing, bags, jewellery and accessories. And they are offering one lucky reader £200 to spend in store*. Merry Christmas Mudsters!

*(The prize must be redeemed in kate spade new york’s Bluewater store by 30 Apr 2018)
