#AVeryLindorkChristmas – 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways (2020 Edition)

Shares

Happy Holidays!!

It’s that wonderful time of year again… when cheerful Christmas music and cheesy movies are on repeat. Everything is looking and hopefully feeling festive. And all the snow is like a winter wonderland out there! 

This year, Mike and I added a Wacky Waving Santa inflatable to our Christmas decor line-up (see the video below). I feel like this is also the year of the Christmas Gnome! I tried making my own and it didn’t turn out so well (lol), so I ended up buying a cute one that’s now bringing holiday cheer and good luck to our household. 

And of course, Dec. 1, 2020 marks the return of my annual social media Christmas Giveaways!

A Very Lindork Christmas - 12 Days of Giveaways 2020 - Wide
Enter for a chance to win daily prizes in my 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways (2020)!

Since 2017, I’ve been running December giveaways for new and old followers and visitors of this blog. It’s been a way for me to say thank YOU for following me throughout the year, and also a way to highlight some amazing businesses! This year, I’ve added even more prizes as a bonus for my newsletter subscribers!

From December 1-12, 2020, I’ll be running a daily giveaway featuring a local business here on my blog and across my social media accounts.

This year, my 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways also includes bonus shopping incentives!

As we all know, many small businesses have been hit hard by the pandemic. So for 2020 I wanted to add a little extra support local twist to my Christmas giveaways.

Along with a chance to win the featured daily prize, I’m also paying for free gifts for the first few people to shop at each featured business!

Read each giveaway post for details on what the free gift with purchase is. You’ll just need to mention #AVeryLindorkChristmas to the business when purchasing items in store (or put in LINDORKXMAS as an online code!) Gifts are limited so shop soon for a chance to redeem them. 

I’m hoping this free gift with purchase incentivizes you to not only follow the business to enter for a chance to win the giveaway, but also support the local business by spending there during a time they need it most. 

A PANDEMIC NOTE: Businesses aren’t shut down in Alberta (at time of writing this post). I think it’s so important to support them, to try and get them through this (and what will likely be their toughest holiday season ever). But I’ve tried to ensure for the free gift with purchase incentives, that you can do online orders. But if you do go in-store, please wear a mask, consider curbside pick-up, sanitize, shop alone, be safe!

Day 12 Giveaway (December 12, 2020)

WINNER UPDATE: Congratulations to lightandtimecapsule from Instagram, the winner of this Hotel Arts prize!

Hotel Arts Calgary is the featured business for Day 12 of A Very Lindork Christmas—with a giveaway you can look forward to using in 2021 for when it’s safe to travel again. 

Last year my holiday giveaways were almost exclusively travel related. I believe you don’t need to go far for a vacation—especially when Alberta is packed with so many great sights, food, and things to do. I LOVE visiting Calgary and one of my favourite hotels in town is Hotel Arts—an urban oasis of a hotel with a licensed, year-round, indoor heated pool (stunning!!), stunning artwork all over the property (including a brand new Instagrammable Wall), delicious, gourmet dining and a location that can’t be beat. As you can imagine, hotels everywhere have taken a serious hit during this pandemic. It’s also forced them to be creative and innovative in their offerings. That’s why Hotel Arts has become the first hotel in Calgary to offer an ‘All-Inclusive’ resort experience! Everything is pretty much covered in your cost of booking (that’s extremely low to begin with!) much like a resort at a sunny destination. You can stay close to home but still be totally pampered. Hotel Arts also has numerous COVID-safety protocols in place including physical distancing signage, elevator notices, increased cleaning and sanitation protocols and more. Read about their safety measures here.

This final giveaway of my 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways is meant to give us all travel to look forward to next year, when it’s hopefully safe to do so again. And at the very least, safe to do so across Alberta again.

Earlier in the pandemic they turned into a southside location of their sister restaurant Woodshed Burgers. Currently they’re now operating as “The Hen House”—serving southern comfort take-out food until restrictions are lifted. Paul is one of the most recognizable and successful local chefs in the city (he also does a lot to build the industry through his work with the High School Culinary Challenge), and his restaurants and teams are often giving back to charity too.

Day 8 Giveaway (December 8, 2020)

WINNER UPDATE: Congratulations to Elaine T. from blog comments, the winner of this A Bite of Brazil prize!

A Bite of Brazil by Pampa is the featured business for Day 8 of A Very Lindork Christmas! 

I first knew I needed to visit A Bite of Brazil by Pampa because I saw they were making and selling the Brazilian Pao de Queijo—cheesebreads—that I had come to love during my visits to Pampa Brazilian Steakhouse. I can seriously down at least 10 of these cheesebreads in one sitting, they are SO good and so addictive! The cheesebreads lured me in, everything else A Bite of Brazil makes made me stay. They sell delicious cheesebread sandwiches, a variety of chocolates, coffees, desserts (many are gluten-free!), and are just always a lovely downtown cafe stop. We know downtown businesses aren’t doing very well during this pandemic (well—is any business doing very well?), so it would just kill me if A Bite of Brazil didn’t make it through. So I’m happy to feature them in this giveaway and I hope if you haven’t discovered them yet, you’ll become a fan and customer now!

    What a beautiful idea! I’m very excited about consciously shopping 🛍 local this year. I’ve never really given a thought as to where i shopped before – which pretty much was a big box store.

  • Avatar Sarah Fung says:

    Awesome prize I love cookies!! And love a good Christmas giveaway – thanks Linda :)

  • Avatar Connie says:

    I’d love to win the bloom box so I can share with my friend who has a dairy allergy. And my kids love cookies

  • Avatar Lee-Ann J says:

    I would love to win Bloom Cookies – I mean..come on.. cookies???

  • Avatar Kim lewis says:

    I would love to win the Bloom cookie prize. I just had knee surgery so I can’t do any holiday baking this year ☹️

  • Avatar Kayleigh W says:

    I’d love to win this Bloom Cookie Co. prize! Not only because National Cookie Day is this week, but also Bloom Cookies featured prominently in my partner and I’s regularly snacking when we first started dating. We just moved in together this year and this would be such a nice prize to win that matches with our story.

  • Avatar Shonna says:

    Thank you Linda for starting this exciting contest! What a great way to take all of our minds off of current events. I’d love to win this prize as my son has allergies to peanuts, eggs and dairy and it is so hard to find a bakery that caters to that. As well, he is also autistic with OCD and social anxiety so he’s always afraid to try new things. However, he’s old enough that I could show him the website and he could read that they bake without any of the ingredients he is allergic to.
    In fact, I was so excited when I read that they were free of these allergens in this bakery, that I’ve already placed an order!
    Thanks again Linda ❤️

  • Avatar Cheryl Leverette says:

    Who doesn’t love cookies? They look delish! Thanks Bloom cookies

  • I would love to win, because I’d like to share some with my family this year. Slowly getting them to try new things to support local!

  • Avatar Jenny says:

    Bloom cookies are my absolute favorite! I love supporting this local business and my cookie addiction

  • “They wholeheartedly embrace the idea of inclusivity” — you are 100% correct. My husband and I LOVE cookies — and we LOVE Bloom… so it was a no-brainer when we asked them if they could help us out at our wedding. We placed a big order and EVERYONE loved all the cookies — there were no leftovers!

    So we would LOVE to celebrate with them again with a large holiday family box of cookies – the best way to spread Christmas cheer.

    Thanks for doing this Linda! #ShopLocal #SupportLocal #AVeryLindorkChristmas

  • Avatar Shonna MacDonald says:

    Hi Linda!
    First of all, I have to say that I love your blogs so much! I really look forward to reading them when you put them out and I save the old ones in a folder and go back to read them again and again. We have discovered so many new shops, restaurants and places to visit in Alberta based on your blogs alone.
    So thank you so very much for writing them. I wish I had a million dollars so I could order from one of the restaurants you’ve mentioned for our every meal!
    Thank you also for this contest. This has, as it has been for everyone, a tough time as I and my son are immune compromised and my 80 year old Mom lives with us, so we’ve been quarantining and working from home since February. So any distraction from current events is so very much welcome.
    So thank you so very much. I guess this is supposed to be my entry to today’s contest but I couldn’t do that without thanking you so much from all of us.
    Have a wonderful Christmas!!

    Shonna and Terry and family

  • Avatar Elaine Tran says:

    I’d be very appreciative to win Day 12’s prize for HotelArt’s all-inclusive prize for my partner and I. We have been long distance between Edmonton and Calgary for a year and a half now. I’d like to win the package to celebrate his graduation and new job as his ceremony was cancelled due to COVID-19. Thanks for the opportunity, Linda! 🙂
