just because gifts giveaway

Giveaway #9



Melanie Smith of Just Because Gifts must be one of those incredible moms who is always taking care of everyone around her. Check out these yummy care packages--who wouldn't like to get one of these?


Maybe you're one of those people who thinks about doing nice things like this for people, but you don't have the time to follow through (yes, I'm talking about myself here). Just Because Gifts sends care packages to your loved ones for you, and they're even wrapped in your choice of colored tissue paper. Each care package includes granola bars, chips, candy and other goodies for a late night study session, a taste of home, or "Just Because!" Once you've selected your gift basket, you can select "add-ons" for an even more personal touch.



I'm thinking this would make a great Father's Day gift! I know my dad and husband always appreciate treats. You could win the "Family Movie Pack" to send to a special someone, or have it sent to yourself! The Family Movie Pack includes: 4 8oz. cans of soda, 3 movie sized boxes of candy, 4 candy bars/bags of candy, 2 bags microwaveable popcorn, and a $5 Blockbuster gift card. Just visit Just Because Gifts and leave us a comment telling us what care package you'd like to send, and who you'd send it to, for a chance to win this sweet package! Entries must be received by Saturday, May 30 at 11:59pm to be eligible.

Melanie also offers personal part planning services for childrens parties and photography. She must be one organized woman! Check out her other services while you're over there!

Family Movie Pack (includes movie rental!):
because my husband LOVES watching movies, and we in in dire need of a family night when he gets home from depoyment, but the military service 4 pack would be good too!

Princess Of Pink said...

I'd LOVE the Taste of Home care package :)
And I would have it send to myself,because I am in a very sad mood right now :( My sweet dear kitty cat has been gone since last Sunday!! I miss him SO much so I could use a nice tasty pick me up :)

Hayley said...

I'd send the "Classic Pack - Original" to myself. I live in Australia & love chocolate, so any excuse to try some choc from the US! :)

junglewife said...

I like the Classic pack - I'd send it to our friends who are far away from us!

Widiger Family said...

Classic 4 pack - I'd like to send it to my very dear friend Cindy because she's always so willing to send me packages of american goodies to me, who now lives in Europe. It would be payback time. She's such a great friend.

Suzy D. said...

I think they are all nice. If I win could I choose the service one and have you send it to someone in need? great idea, I love the boxes.

Malinda said...

I'd send the family movie pack to my husband for Father's day. We love watching movies together and maybe he would even share. :)

Lynn Osborne said...

Family Movie Pack for me too. I've been itching to go rent one of the old classic movies for some time now and just haven't done it. Thanks for the chance to win!

La Gitan Mystique said...

It would be the Service Packs - Tastes of Home, and I'd send it to my son. One family memeber likes sweets the other likes non-sweets, so this would be perfect.

KingsGirl said...

wow, cool stuff. creative minds out there in the blogosphere :) hmm, what to choose? I would love a healthy pack to send to my sister. she is one busy mom who sometimes grabs the quickest "junk" to feed her boys. this would be perfect for her!
thanks!

Leslie said...

I'd send the movie pack to my friend Shelly. Her husband just deployed for his first tour and as a Chaplain's wife, she's in charge of caring for the families left behind with her on base. She has lots of get-togethers and activities planned for them.

Rebecca said...

I like the classic healthy pack. We'd send to our friends who have kids that like to go on picnics.

pam said...

I would choose the family movie pack for my husband. He is an avid movie watcher and even has a blog where he does movie reviews and discussions. He would love it! Thanks.

Kelly Jackson said...

I would send the Healthy one to my Father-in-law because he is still recovering from major surgery. I would then have to send the Family Fun Night one to my three daughters in FL. One is getting married in July and I think the three of them could use some fun time together before the big day.
Excellent Idea!!

Taste of Home!
I'd send it to my bro who's on a mission. He'd love it!

Mara said...

I love the healthy pack! I would send it to my mom so she would know that I love and think about her, even though it is hard to say at times.

CBear said...

I'd have a taste of home package sent to my husband. The babies and I are in one state, and he is in another. Home not selling here, his work is there. He misses us, and his home.

Tiffany said...

the classic healthy pack looks so good. my mom who is recovering from cancer treatments could use one of those to cheer her spirit.

Becky said...

Cute ideas and baskets- would love to get one

Tupelo Honey Child said...

I'd love to really believe I'd order a healthy basket from this cute site, but who am I kidding, bring on the chocolate and Pepsi!! What a great idea for a gift!

Summer said...

I would love the Family Movie Pack! My husband is in school (which equals us being poor!), and we have an eight month old baby, so we do a lot of movie watching at our house. What fun ideas!

cara said...

I would choose the Family Movie Night. I actually like your idea of a father's day gift. My dad works non-stop and this gift would be an easy way to give him and my mum a very easy night off to themselves.

Amy said...

I'd send the family movie pack to my friend because her family loves family movie night.

Fritter Chicks™ said...

What a great idea! Love it!

Hills said...

I love the Family Movie Pack! Sometimes after the kids are in bed we need a break to ourselves! And that would be PERFECT! liquidgirl2004@hotmail.com

LiEr said...

The Healthy Package! Not because I'm particularly healthy but because the husband (who loves the snacks inside it) often finds the snack room in his office low in his favorite things. It would be so neat to send him a package when he least expects it, to his office! Thank you for the giveaway.

Melissa said...

Definitely the Movie Pack. My husbands Birthday is soon and due to a terrible month I just might not be prepared. This package would be great.

Emily said...

I would choose the Family Movie Pack because my parents go to the movies 3-4 times per week. They are trying to cut back and rent movies (you know..the recession) and this would be the perfect kick-off present!

Thanks!

Emily S. said...

I would love to send the family movie pack to my sister- she could use some chic flicks to get her through her husband traveling a lot lately.

Lisa and company said...

I would send the Family Movie Pack to my husband and kids because they would think it was very very cool. I may make my own even if I don't win

I think they are all great ideas, but I'd send either the original or movie pack and I would send it to my youngest sister who has an apartment of her own now. She lives almost 2000 miles away and this would really brighten her day!

charonfamily said...

I like two carepackages, the first I make sugar cookies and ice them up all pretty like and drop them to a friend who is having a hard time. The next one is the movie night. We go stock up on tons of popcorn and candy, but it in a big bowl with a movie and take it to a family that could use some "down" time. I just love giving packages and cheering people up!

haley said...

family movie pack. sent to my sister and brother in law because after putting 4 kids to bed you need to veg out and watch a movie.

Sara Richins said...

Family Movie Pack would be awesome! Summer time is fun and all, but a great movie night with the family is always fun!

Michelle Bebe said...

Family movie pack! My Sister watches my kids every week for FREE and I would just die without her! She has a family of 5 (one is breastfed, so he won't eat it) so this would be PERFECT for her to show her how VERY much I appreciate her help while I help run my hubby's business!

susan said...

I choose the Family Movie Pack for my husband because it seems all we can fit into our busy schedule is a movie every once in a while.

Lindsey said...

Um, I should probably say the healthy pack, but in reality the Movie Pack is my favorite! Of course I'm too selfish to send them to anyone other than me. :)

AB said...

So fun! I love the family movie pack!

Colliers said...

kristib said...

I would love to send a classic pack to my SIL who is always thinking of others (and actually follows through!), and who has a sweet tooth to rival anyone.

L said...

What cool "Just Because" gifts! That is a super idea! I'd love to send (and win) the Family Movie Pack including rental to either my parents or my husband. My parents buy tons of dvds or rent them so it looks like a dvd rental store in their house and since they are getting up there in years an at home movie night is a fab idea. I would send it to my hubby because he always wants to go to the movie theater but I won't go with him, so he doesn't go, because it's much too loud there. A movie pack and movie night at home is just the thing for these hard economic times. Great giveaway!
