Gwen’s Nest Giveaway Week 4

Giveaway-Week-4This week’s giveaway will highlight the Reflections category. It’s where I just share things from my life and family. So I thought I’d make the giveaway a bit more personal too, and send the winner a little care package of my favorite things. I’m praying that this goes to someone who really can use a little pick me up.

Here’s a closer peek at what will be in the box:


  1. Adorable mug
  2. Tower of tempting teasIMG_3514
  3. Peppermint lip balm
  4. Best chocolate bar in the history of ever
  5. Super cute notebook with blueberries on it &
  6. My favorite kind of pen (pictured below in update)IMG_3517
  7. Pink Himilayan Salt in bag
  8. A spice jar that I will fill with your choice of my own homemade Ranch, Greek, Chili, or Taco seasoning mix


Hope this is a little ray of sunshine into someone’s day…click below to enter! :)

Update: here is a picture of my favorite kind of pen, and this is the one I’ll be including in the giveaway. I also want to thank you guys for entering, commenting and sharing the giveaways! I’ve had so much fun giving things away (giving gifts is my love language), and it’s killing me not to reply to your comments, but I don’t want to mess up the contest. :) )

favorite penI love the ebony Recollections pen with the super fine tip. I get them at art supply stores a couple of times a year and guard them with my super Ninja moves because people around here steal pens.

  2. says

    I would love to win this. It has been abnormally cold here in the south and it has made life a little dreary and sad. It would be nice to have a pick-me-up!

  3. Barbara says

    Love all the things going into this wonderful giveaway. My favorite item would be the darling cup..,but I also love the idea of getting one of your sauce mixes in the spice jar! Thanks for the opportunity! Love your blog and your recipes!

  4. Cathleen Cryer says

    Favorite memory is a hot cocoa mix my mom made- love your hot chocolate recipe – would love to make some in that mug

  5. Ashley Mabe says

    I would love to win your “favorite things”! I love that you are including a choice of spice mix in the box, I just can’t decide if I’d choose the Taco or Greek mix, they both look so good!

  6. Danielle Young says

    I’m intrigued by the salt. And I love the mug! And even if I don’t win–I would love to know what your favorite pen is!

  7. Kim says

    The cherries & almonds chocolate bar would be in my top favorites, for sure, but I love pink Himalayan salt, and tea, too…so it’s hard to pick just 1 favorite. Love your blog, Gwen! Thanks for sharing your journey with us!

  8. says

    I would love to win this!! What fun that would be :-) (and I’d pick the Ranch seasoning. I’ve had it on my list to make for so long. don’t know what’s keeping me….)
    Have a lovely week ~ Tracy

  9. says

    Well, I confess that my interest is piqued on that chocolate! And I’ve been wanting to try Himalayan pink salt to see if I can truly tell a difference. And I always love Burt’s Bees and notebooks, and I’m really curious about your pen, since I just discovered a new favorite myself, and I am wondering about Greek seasoning now. Lots of goodies in this that I would enjoy! It would make my day to win it, I confess. :) Fun winter blues chaser!

  10. Debra Schramm says

    What an awesome gift! My favorite would be the choice of your seasonings. I think I’ll choose Ranch, although Greek would be great also!

  11. Lori says

    What a sweet gift…would not expect anything less from such a sweet person! Blessings for your day, Gwen!

  12. Nancy A. says

    I love the towering teas and the mug!! So cute, and I need a pick me up—have been snowed in so long—need a boost.

  13. Conney Keel says

    Oh, I love LOVE the blueberry notebook! Besides cranberry country, we have loads of blueberry patches. MMMM!

  14. Carolyn viola says

    Hi! I subscribe to your email list, and my favorite thing from your giveaway will be the chocolate bar! Thanks!

  15. Linda B. says

    Chocolate! And I have tried it once and just loved it! But all the rest of this surprise pkg I would enjoy equally!

  16. Christine Holland says

    I so enjoy your humor as you share the realities of your everyday life. Thank you for all you do to encourage others and for being real.

  19. TiaStevens says

    This would be AWESOME to win. Could really use a pick me up. Just had a pipe burst at our church where hubby is a Pastor. Entire church flooded. Insurance will cover carpet, not sure about pews. I’m exhausted & give out. Thankful no one was hurt. This too shall pass.

  20. barbara hemley says

    i will like the spice best, i think- if i win, of course
    ps- i found your website by adding ‘.com’ to the name on the side of my new water bottle- i am an
    almost obsessive shopper, so i am curious to see if i find more things to spend money on.
    God bless, barb

  21. alta blake says

    Love your blog Gwen!! I would love all these goodies! my favorite right now is Oolong tea!! the Shrinker!
    Thanks for all your amazing recipes and tips for good healthy living.

  22. Barbara Nethers says

    As a former teacher we are notorious for taking pens. Or having them taken by other teachers or students. I fixed that by attaching a silk flower to mine. Then they didn’t disappear!!

  23. Melissa Eddy says

    Loving all your great ideas, recipes, and tips to help on this new journey of mine to becoming healthy.

  24. Connie Talo says

    My favorite thing is the pen and tablet. I LOVE pens! :) The chocolate bar looks yummy, and I’d love to try your homemade Ranch mix. Thank you!

  25. Cathy says

    If I did this right, it says I name a favorite thing in the favorite thing give away. I like the mug, and the chocolate, and….
    It would be a comfort after being so sick.

  26. Keena says

    My favorite thing in the box? Chocolate!! And definitely the pen:) Ummmm…..And everything else. Thank you the chance to win it!!

    Well… it’s really hard to choose my favorite, because you’re including so many nice things. I’ve never tried that kind of chocolate bar, so that looks really good. I wouldn’t mind trying the teas, and I like a pen that flows smoothly. Thanks for a wonderful, fun giveaway.

  32. Joann B. says

    Oh sqeeeaalll! I love give aways! The chocolate cherry bar would be my fav for sure! Waiting in anticipation :) 😉

  33. DeLee says

    Do I have to pick just one thing? Uh … then I guess it would have to be the cute tea tower. And I just wanted to say that I love your heart …

    I would love it if that tower of tea toppled over my way! And the chocolate sounds awesome. In fact I think I like it all!!

  36. Debbie Dauth says

    I would love to win any of the items in your giveaway. I think it is a wonderful thing you do to help people and I just need a little pick me up and more inspiration to be successful! Thank you.

  37. Dawna Tierce says

    This is so sweet! I love the Burt’s Bees lip balm, but I think I would be most interested in the little spice jar filled with your Greek mix. Thanks so much for all you do for our THM family :)

  38. Laura says

    What a neat giveaway! I love stationary, notebooks, pens, pencils, cards. I love making lists and jotting down ideas. It’s so soothing to me. Thank you for your blog. I refer to it often, from recipes to cough syrup

  39. Ashley Swords says

    What a fun and thoughtful give-away! I like the looks of that chocolate bar and have noticed it at my grocery store. Is it THM approved? If so, I am so picking up a bar or two next time I shop!

  40. Emily says

    How to choose my favorite item…? Looks like it was made for me, has a little of all my favorite things too.

  41. LaNette says

    This all looks great! I would use and consume all of it, but I think I am most excited about the pen. (am going to look them up right now! :)

  42. Cassandra says

    Wow, what a great set of favorite things! The mug is adorable, I’d love to try the chocolate, and I still haven’t gotten around to making your spice blends, so I’d love to try one!
