Christmas giveaway | Win a Yankee Candle set

Klik hier voor de Nederlandse versie.

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope that you woke up to find some fantastic presents under the Christmas tree and that you have exciting plans for today! So tell me, how are you going to spend the merriest (and most calorie crazy) day of the year? I’m going to celebrate with two South-African friends that invited me over for a Christmas meal at their place, and I’m really looking forward to it! When Juan and Eugene heard that my boyfriend would be going to Belgium alone this year – work got in the way of my holiday plans :-( – they insisted that I spend Christmas with them. So in a couple of hours I’ll be at their door with a good bottle of champagne! I’ve been working long hard hours these past few days, so I can’t wait to just relax and put my feet up. But I’m sure I’m not the only one who has had a busy and hectic run-up to the holidays, so that’s why I decided to organize a big Yankee Candle Christmas giveaway for my Belgian, Dutch and Swiss readers today. I reeeeeally love the scented candles and wax melts from Yankee Candle, and I bet many of you do too!

Giveaway (Christmas Yankee Candle) (3)

What can you win?

A shopping budget of 40 euros (or the Swiss franc equivalent to that) to use at or in the Swiss Yankee Candle online store, depending on where you live. I’m sponsoring this giveaway myself, so I had to narrow it down to just these three countries to keep the shipping fees reasonable. I’m just a poor girl, sowwy ;-)

Giveaway (Christmas Yankee Candle) (1)


The winner will get to use the full budget to pick out Yankee Candle goodies, which I will then order, pay for and have shipped to them.

– like Kiss & Make-up on facebook

What can you do for 2 extra chances of winning?

  9. Merry Christmas to you, too. Enjoy your free time, it is well deserved. Maybe you can fit in a little ski trip.
    It’s 15° where I live, it is crazy, you may think it is Easter not Christmas.

    • If the weather and snow conditions are right, we might go skiing next week! And looking at the snow that has been falling for hours and hours and hours now, I think we’ll be good :-)

  26. Lovely! Would you like to follow each other on Bloglovin? Please let me know and I follow you back :)

  27. Oh Melissa this does sound lovely! I’m a Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse addict! The only problem is, in Canada some of the Melvita products are more expensive than Nuxe! I’ll sure have a closer look but if it is as I suspect I’ll probably get the large size of Nuxe next time which has a spray. :)

  28. Merry Christmas & Happy holiday!

  29. Wat een leuke giveaway, ik houd echt van Yankee Candles :-) Ik like je op Facebook, volg je op Bloglovin en heb je bericht gedeeld op Twitter. Fijne feestdagen! xxx
