Win EVERY day!

Feeling festive? We are! So here’s a prize, EVERY day for 12 Days… just to show we love you!

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, Friday 6 Dec, there’ll be a different prize each day up for grabs here on Muddy Kent – see my list below. And all you have to do to win is enter on Facebook or 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 (we’d love it if you’d SHARE the post with anyone you think deserves it please, but this is not compulsory)
  • 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, each evening.

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

1. The Five Year Christmas Planner from Fraser & Parsley (worth £45), Fri 6 Dec

Can you imagine Christmas without the worry and stress that comes with last minute panic? Fraser & Parsley have created a 5 year planner to bring back some much needed calm {& joy} to the festivities. They learnt first hand that keeping notes and records from year to year gives you an amazing head start – it’s genius. The Christmas Planner will guide you through from Cooking & Meal Planning, Present Ideas & Wish Lists, Christmas Crafts & Family Traditions plus you can record handy Suppliers, Resources and Notes. A fab gift for you or your perfectionist friend!

2. Christmas Wreath from Flowers by Enchantment, (worth £40), Sat 7 Dec

Want the best dressed door on your street? Winners for the second year running of the Muddy Stiletto Best Florist Kent Award, Claire and Mandy at Flowers by Enchantment in Tonbridge continue to offer loyal and new customers friendly, personalised assistance. Which is why they’re not only giving Muddy readers the chance to win a stunning door wreath (prize must be picked up from the store), they’re also going to let the winner decide the colours of their creation – the personal touch we just love.

3. Pair of Luxury Baubles, from KAGU, (worth £50), Sun 8 Dec

These decadent giant baubles are made from recycled glass, decorated with a striking silky black and aged smoke finish. Their size and design would make a stunning focal point and festive feature in any home. Small 18 x 15cm (dia) and Large 25 x 21cm (dia) and each one comes with a black velvet tie. Kindly donated from our fave Tenterden interiors store – check out their range of gorgeous goodies here, you’ll want to snaffle the lot.

4. Bill’s Restaurant & Bar, gift card (worth £80), Mon 9 Dec

Bill’s Sevenoaks restaurant sits in Lady Boswell House, an elegant stone building full of character and history, nestled among the boutique shops, theatres and pubs on Sevenoaks’ bustling London Road. And inside you’ll find the very best of Bill’s signature sprinkling of design gorgeousness because this restaurant branch has recently undergone an extensive refurb. They’re giving away this gift card to be redeemed in the New Year so you and your family can save on your purse strings this January. That’s when they’re launching their Veganuary Menu (in addition to normal à la carte choices) so something tasty to try on the horizon.

5. Luxe Christmas Box, from The Graze Girls (worth £45), Tues 10 Dec

Friends, Emily and Laura, set up The Graze Girls born form a love of sharing good food with friends and family and an eye for luxury.

7. Anno Orange & Honey gin, from Anno Distillers, (worth £34.30), Thurs 12 Dec

Get your hands on this top tipple, created by Anno, the award-winning Kent-based distillery. Delivering a bold citrus burst, Orange & Honey Gin infuses zingy orange zest and locally sourced honey with subtle spices, ginger and nutmeg to create the refreshing taste that awakens your palate. As a nice touch the makers have given a nod to the important role bees played in creating one of the key ingredients – that’s why they teamed up with Bee Friendly Trust to support their mission to create habitats for honey bees and all pollinators to thrive. Knowing that Anno are making a donation per bottle sold should make your drink taste just that bit sweeter. Go buy some Chrimbo pressies at the the Anno pop up shop at Bluewater which is there until the end of December.

Because you’ll be keeping this one for yourself, right? Enter quick, sashay at your leisure.
