A CSN Giveaway Just in Time for the Holidays!

I've done a couple CSN giveaways on here in the past year... If you don't know what CSN Stores is, they are an online store that offers literally everything you could ever need. I'm not even exaggerating one bit. They have everything from drop leaf tables to bedding, hammocks to TV stands and everything in between. Seriously, check out this list of their 200 online stores.

So enough about them, lets talk about the giveaway. As you know, CSN Stores asked me to be a CSN Preferred Blogger. So you get a chance to win a $55 gift card from CSN Stores. Just in time for the holidays!

Some rules:
- Enter by midnight (EST) Thursday, December 2
- One lucky winner will be chosen at random

To enter, leave a comment answering:
- Have you started your holiday shopping? Or are you one of those people who have it already done by now?

Me, I am about half done. I placed a big order on Amazon last night for all the gifts on Hubby's side of the family!

Extra:
- If you'd like to receive a second entry, tweet this giveaway. Be sure to include @beantownbaker and @CSNStores then come back here and leave me a second comment on this post saying you tweeted about it.

** Note the $55 gift certificate cannot be applied towards shipping costs

Jes said...

I'm 100% done! Living overseas and having to ship gifts "home" to the states made me be well prepared this year!

Sara said...

I guess I could call myself half done with shopping. It feels like there is so much more to do though.

Anne said...

I have not started! I don't even have a list of people I have to buy for. I should probably get started on that.

KV said...

I have a CSN giveaway going on on my blog too! I am about 90% done other than stocking stuffers.

Shannon said...

I started, but I am struggling to figure out what to get for a few of the people in my life. Everyone already has so much!

A said...

I haven't started I'm ashamed to say!

Marcie said...

I'm about halfway done, have a lot left though

Jenn said...

I am 98% done! I did a lot on Black Friday and already have most wrapped! Just call me Martha this Christmas!

JLYNCH6341 said...

Definitely have not shopped yet but have started a list!

Lucy said...

I'm totally done, woohoo!

Fun and Fearless in Beantown said...

This giveaway will come just in time for the holidays! I've only purchased one gift so far but I'm slowly getting into it!

Danielle said...

I am all done, minus stocking stuffers for my boys.. But my youngest has a Birthday in January and I still need to shop for that.

Tiffany said...

Yes, I've started my holiday shopping. I have a ton of people to buy for!

Rhondi said...

I haven't started shopping yet. I usually wait until about 2 weeks before Christmas on most gifts. The big ones are usually purchased when they are on sale right before the big day.

Kerry said...

I've started but we still have quite a bit that needs to get done... and we're running short on time as we'll be celebrating with my family early this year (on the 18th)

Anna said...

I've started my holiday shopping and I'm making headway. Also, I didn't know what CSN was. I'll check it out.

Amanda said...

I picked up a few things before Thanksgiving and then took care of a lot more on Black Friday!

Stephanie said...

Have not started. Never start till after Thanksgiving. I usually do all my shopping the week before Christmas. I love the pressure of last minute and I don't over spend by shopping for 2 months. Works for me.

O. said...

I haven't started shopping yet. I usually don't start until the week before.

lbenoit said...

I've barely started! We've picked up a few toys for our nieces, but that's about it. Thankfully we don't have a ton of people to buy for.

Katie @ Health for the Whole Self said...

I'm half-way done like you! I also just placed a huge order last night, and now just have a few little things here and there to pick up.

stacysings said...

I am about 75% done. I did a lot on cyper Monday for the first time and I might never go to a mall again.....uh oh, did I say that out loud. I hope my hubby doesn't read this...lol

Cara said...

I've got some done-- still trying to figure out what to buy some people but it will get done!

suburban prep said...

Except for a few little extras that aren't really necessary I am basically finished.

Nicole said...

I'm about 90% done. I had twins 8 weeks ago, and I'm not getting out much, so I'm doing everything on line!

Anonymous said...

Haven't even started! Oops!

Lauren

Grace @ Front Porch Yoga said...

I don't set foot into a mall anymore. My secret: I give charity gift cards from tisbest.org, which allows the recipient to choose which organization they'd like to donate their money to.

Megan said...

I've only bought a few gifts so far--I wish I was already done!!

Jessie said...

I am almost done!! Just a few more to go!! Feeling pretty good about it so far!

Taryn said...

I haven't start. I'm an epic procrastinator!

flourchild said...

I've done all the shopping I'm going to do, besides getting all the stuff to make about 14 dozen cookies to give away as gifts!

Toby said...

I am 90% done. Thank gosh

meeyeehere said...

I am over half way done. I have a few people left to focus on.I shop all year round because it takes that long to come up with enough money.So I just shop as I have extra cash

Biz said...

I usually start shopping after December 15 when I get my annual Christmas bonus :D

But I am usually done in a couple days - I start making lists in August :D

Kate said...

Haven't even begun :/

Reader said...

I am almost done - hit Costco and Amazon to do most of it!

starsquiggle said...

1/2 way there

coolkids said...

love csn! I have started on my kids but that is about it! thecoolkidsblog.com

Acacia said...

I have no idea what I'm getting people for Christmas! The only presents that I have in the works is a needlepoint I am sewing for my boyfriend's parents and I plan on knitting my mom a scarf. Homemade gifts are the best and cheapest, but I don't have time to make one for everybody! If I won this gift card it would probably go towards presents anyway.

Jessica said...

I bought my first gift on Saturday, and that's it. So I've got a lot of shopping left!

Linda and Matthew said...

I'm a little over half done.

Nicole said...

I am about 40% done. Still have some family members to buy for.

Daisy said...

I started mine! still got a lot to do but having a few out of the way makes me feel good!!

Dunne' said...

I have gotten a few items but I still need to do a majority of the shopping yet (probably next week)!

Megan said...

I have my daughter all done but have to work on the hubby's presents and a few friends.

Jessica Falksen said...

All I have done is the planning. I'm making my gifts this year since I'm dropping all my money on a plane ticket to go home. It certainly complicates the process in same ways.

Jess A said...

I just started this past weekend, with 2 little ones to shop for I have to get some sort of a head start.

wifeplzak said...

I am only 50% done... I need to get on that!

Ellen said...

Almost everything done but the boyfriend!
Which always proves to be the most difficult...

Krystal said...

I'm feeling like Scrooge since we haven't done any Christmas shopping. But Christmas is being put on the backburner since we had to buy last minute tickets to Florida. We have to visit DH's grandfather who is terribly ill, and his dying wish is for everyone to be there for the holidays. I guess our big gift will be spending time with family for the holiday season. I would love to shop for stuff, but money is tight right now.

Bakers Treats said...

I am 35% Done.

Elise said...

I'm just like you - I've started, but I'm not done yet. This gift card would definitely help me out!!!

Eva said...

We're done - we celebrated Christmas over Thanksgiving with my husband's family already.

Valerie said...

All done! I need to minimize stress this time of year - and shopping early is one way to do it!

Amy said...

MOST of my shopping is done. This is so unlike me!

Rhonda said...

I am almost done, a few stragglers left...

Laura and Alex said...

I have about half of my shopping done and all of my budget gone :)

Michelle said...

Barely done! We have the kids' presents, but nothing for the adults yet.

Tyler said...

We're almost done! We know exactly what we're getting everyone but since we have to fly home for Christmas it's easier to either have the gifts shipped there or just buy them at home rather than trying to pack everything and then paying the insane baggage fees!

bellasbistro said...

I'm about 90% done - this gift card would definitely help finish up that last 10%!

Kirsty said...

I'm 1% done...:D

Beth said...

I started but I don't know what to get for the "big" gift for my husband!

Sara said...

I have some done. I placed a pretty big order on amazon for a few people. I still have a little more than half to go though.

Amy said...

Maybe one third done. Have to figure out what to get everyone else!

Michelle said...

I am about 90% done. No holiday shopping crowds for me!

Mom-in-law said...

About half done shopping, and about 1/4 done on items I"m making!!!

Rebecca said...

I have done almost no shopping, but I will do some this weekend at the Bazaar Boston Bizarre and the rest online.

Ashley said...

I'm about halfway done so far.

Diana H. said...

I'm almost done with shopping - just a few more items to buy!

Eileen said...

i've ordered a few things online but hasn't made a dent in the list!

tracym2303 said...

Lisa said...

I, too, am about 1/2 done, but we don't buy too much, so that isn't saying much :)

Taylor said...

I haven't even started...ugh! I am definitely planning to get a big chunk of it done this weekend..

Erica said...

I'm about 75% done. After my recent move to the middle of nowhere, I did most of my shopping online and took advantage of free shipping deals!

Julia said...

I'm about halfway done. I would love to be further, but I'm having a difficult time coming up with ideas.

Amber2Zoe said...

I'm mostly done - just have to wrap them all now.

Katrina said...

I started (and finished!) on Black Friday! Shopped at the mall from 5 AM-2PM, then spent another 30 minutes ordering items I couldn't find in stores from online websites!

Domestic Diva said...

I'm mostly done shopping, but I have lots of things to make still.

Melissa said...

I am completely finished as of a week before Thanksgiving...INCLUDING stocking stuffers. :D First time ever that I won't be one of those last minute shoppers at 11:59pm on Christmas Eve picking through the rubble at the malls and discount stores.

Aimee said...

i have about 1/8 done, which is a start! i am one of those "lots of little things" gift-givers, so basically i stop adding to the pile when the buzzer rings. it's so fun to watch someone's face when they realized you were paying attention that one time when they said they liked that one kind of tea....for example. :)

traciet said...

Yes I am almost done with the nieces and nephews! tracietrump@yahoo.com

No way am I done. I have a 12-year-old sister and 7-year-old brother who are eagerly awaiting Santa's delivery. For boyfriend, I bought us a down comforter that we've been enjoying very much for a couple of weeks now.

Kasey said...

I'm not completely done, but I have definitely started!

I have started shopping, but 90% of the stuff I'm getting is online, so I just need to sit down and order everything.

Shannon said...

Miss Chelsea said...

I haven't done any xmas shopping yet! I'm planning on baking lots of cookies and other goodies and giving those to most of the people on my list this year though.... it's just too expensive to buy gifts for each and every person! Plus who doesn't love some fresh baked cookies!

Rachel @ Baked by Rachel said...

I only have a few things so far. I always say I want to be done early but that never happens.

Rachel @ Baked by Rachel said...

Just tweeted :)

No I am the worst! I am the worst at waiting until the last minute and then stressing myself out!

I'm a little more than half way done. All the big gifts are done...I got the husband a new snow blower and my son a train table.

CoCo said...

I am more than half way done. Unfortunately the people I have left I have no idea what to buy. My sister loves to cook so maybe I could buy her something with this gift card.

Bonnie said...

I'm pretty well along, but I'm sure there's more for me to do!

Emily said...

I have purchased a few things here and there -- but actually I don't have far to go. I am planning activities (day trips, dinners out, etc) in lieu of gifts for my parents and in-laws.

I have a big list, but I've just begun the actual shopping as of yesterday. I have a ways to go...

MrsOct17th said...

I am one of those people who wait until the last minute. I don't like shopping for other people, plus money is a low this year.
