For the next 12 days we’re giving away free stuff, so don’t miss out! You could win the perfect holiday gift for a gal pal (or yourself). From jewelry to books to coffee, we’re giving away some of the great girlfriend gifts to be featured in our Girlfriend Gift Guides over the next few weeks. Check back every day to see the day’s prize. Our final prize is really exciting, too; we can’t reveal too much but it involves chocolate! And best of all, email subscribers only need to enter once to be in all 12 drawings. This is just our way of sharing our excitement about the holidays with you all. We’re so glad to have you here! Ready to win some holiday swag? See the contest rules and today’s sparkly prize after the jump!

To kick off our 12 Days of Giveaways, we’re going to add some sparkle to your holiday outfits! We’re giving away this beautiful aqua teardrops necklace from one of our favorite Etsy sellers, ImaginaryGirl. Vintage aqua glass teardrops cascade from an intricate vintage filigree pendant. Vintage chains are draped up from the pendant to two more teardrops on this handmade, one of a kind necklace. The necklace measures about 18″ long. Pendant, including teardrops, is about 3.75″ long. Designer Sarah E makes beautiful costume jewelry with vintage pieces. Check out her shop by clicking here. This piece is even prettier in person. It comes in a silver gift box and makes a beautiful girlfriend gift. Thank you, Sarah, for making this giveaway possible! Enter to win this necklace until 11:59 pm tonight (Monday, November 24).

  2. Love this site! Great ideas…great stories. When the economy goes “negative” it is the ideal time to continue to connect with your girl friends.
