$250 Homegoods Gift Card Giveaway, Merry Christmas to YOU!

back-to-berkus

TWO HUNDRED AND FIFTY BONES YO!  I am SOOOOOOOOO excited about todays giveaway!!

image

Homegoods is hands down my favorite retail store to shop at.  I love how they always have such an eclectic mix of things and how its never the same store from day to day.  The best part about it though, is that there are limited quantities of stuff and so you are pretty much guaranteed that no one else will have the same awesome finds that you have.

Christmas came early to my house this year!!  I bought so many amazing things from Homegoods to finish up my Master Bedroom….want a sneak peek?!?

Homegoods

 

How about these amazing pendant lights that I made out of big glass urns?!  Tutorial is coming next week!!

How To Make A Glass Pendant Light

 

I DIED when I saw this amazing white ceramic horse head statue:

Master Bedroom Makeover Ideas 075

 

And don’t you love these super cute nightstand tables?  Clearance.

How to Hang Curtains

So since Christmas is like…9 days away (GAH!) Homegoods conducted a really fun survey about re-gifting.  Did you know that 54% of people have re-gifted at least once?  And that 36% are frequent offenders.

And the people receiving the re-gift? 26% are co-workers!  Crazy!!  I love statistical stuff like this.  If you want to see the full results of the survey you can see that HERE.

Personally I am a gift card buyer.  And actually Homegoods is my go-to gift card.  Just ask the girls in my Bunco Group.

So now to the fun part!

Who wants to win $250.00 to Homegoods?!!  EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!  Do you even know what you can get for $250?!  SO MUCH STUFF!

To enter:

Leave a comment telling us if you are a re-gifter.  And how you feel about it.

Please note that this is a giveaway for Vintage Revivals readers.  If you are not yet please subscribe via Google Friend Connect or RSS feed!

    I have to admit I am…I had a stash of wedding gifts I would take from for a couple years after our wedding. It was nice stuff I just didn’t need it. I don’t see anything wrong with it as long as you remember not to give it to the person you got it from 😀 I too am obsessed with HomeGoods and I think I would probably have a heart attack if I won this but don’t let that stop you from giving it to ME! Thank you for all your amazing posts you are a genius!

    Does re-gifting packaging count? Like, ribbon..those little puzzle boxes you can put gift cards in to? If so, then yes, totally. I don’t feel bad about it either. Wrapping paper and ribbon can get expensive!

    p.s. LOVE the TJMaxx chain. I used to work for TJMaxx and let me tell you..It was hard to keep a paycheck.

    I only regift if it’s something that’s perfect for the recipient, and something I would buy for them if I didn’t already have it handy to give. For other things, I’ll give them away, but not as gifts. If it were reversed and someone gave me a gift just b/c they didn’t want it and felt obligated to give me something, it wouldn’t feel very nice. I’d rather get just a card or a verbal “Happy Holidays!” that was heartfelt.

    I love HomeGoods. Do you know how much damage I could do with $250? LOTS and LOTS. I am a regifter. I have a box under my bed of gifts that are worthy of regifting and I label who they were originally from so that I don’t regift into the same circle.

  • Betsy 15.12.2011 at 13:20

    I must admit that I am also guilty of regifting. I try not to do it often, but there are some things that you just do not want to keep. A light up singing Santa? Ummm….thanks? I think?

    I admit I regift baby gifts! I have two babies and received so much clothes and doubles on toys that I could never use everything! So with being a stay at home mom with a tiny budget I have a big box I pull from when someone has a new baby and I go visit! I feel bad sometimes but I figure it’s better than showing up empty handed!

So my friend put a message out there wondering if anyone would like to send some anonymous gift cards to her friend. I said, Of course! And so did lots of other rad people! Just imagine going to your mailbox everyday and getting lots of stranger love! awesome! :)

    I don’t remember if I’ve ever re-gifted. I know I’ve donated unwanted gifts before or even returned/exchanged them if I knew where they came from. I don’t think it’s a bad thing. I think you should live with what you love, not because you don’t want to offend someone. After all if they gave you a gift, they must want you to be happy right?

    I have re-gifted, but I have a couple of rules…The item has to be in orignial packaging and look brand new. The gift must “match” the person I’m giving it to. Meaning, it must be something that, if I saw it in the store, I would think of that person. If an item doesn’t seem to match anyone I know, I give it to Goodwill or just ask friends if they would like the item. No use having the item sit around my house, unused, when someone else will appreciate it.

    When I got married I re-gifted items that we had duplicates of but couldn’t return… but I don’t think I have since.

    Funny story, when my husband and I were dating and Christmas came up I didn’t know if I should get him anything, didn’t want to scare him off, you know? But, I decided I would get him a fun gift anyway to surprise him. When I gave it to him, he said he had something for me too, but he had to go out to his car. He came back in with a tin of cookies that I later found out had been given to him that day by a co-worker! Good thing I loved him so much already! 11 years later we still laugh about it!

    I absolutely regift and I do not feel any guilt about it. I regift items that are represent a lot of meaning between a friend and myself. So it’s actually rarer that I regift to a coworker. Also, as a librarian I often receive free books and rather have those novels sit on my shelf, I much prefer to share them with the world!

    I can’t recall that I have ever regifted, but I know that I have been a regiftee. For my wedding, a friend gave me a cake plate and in the box was a card addresssed to the person who gave it to me! That was kind of a slap in the face. I don’t think there is anything wrong with regifting, just make sure it’s not obvious!

    I love Random Acts of Kindness…they make me feel awesome…recently I was in line at the grocery store and I had TONS of stuff. The guy behind me had like 4 or 5 things – so I grabbed his stuff, added it to mine, had the cashier ring it up right away and he was on his way. He was so surprised…it was awesome. He gave me a big hug…it was so cool. And I felt great for the rest of the day…

    Hi Mandi! My random act of kindness was yesterday…Man working at Target was telling a co-worker about losing his son in Iraq….yes, I was eavesdropping! Before I knew what I was doing, I was giving him a big hug, telling him how sorry I was for his loss and he and I both cried. He shared some memories and we prayed together. As with all kindness, I was so blessed to talk with this father and great American patriot.

    My random act of kindness: Things have been very tight here for a while. I’m the only one working and we have 3 boys. It’s been very rough. We wanted to do something for the holidays for a family, and we couldn’t afford to do much – so, I emptied the entire contents of my pantry – all of it, and took it all to a food drive at our school. I know it doesn’t seem like much – but for us it is.

    Thanks for putting together such an awesome giveaway!

    I don’t think I’ve regifted before — to the best of my knowledge haha! But I do think certain things can be regifted without an issue — for instance a sealed bottle of Champagne or wine… perfect type of thing to regift. However in my house it’d never stay sealed long enough to hand off to someone else.

    Act of kindness– My husband and I are in Real Estate and have been so blessed this year with all the work that we have been given. Because of that, we are helping a family in our neighborhood (ward) that needs help. They just bought a house and the husband lost his job soon after they moved in. We are getting all their 5 kids their gifts from Santa. We are loving it! <3

    Homegoods is my favorite store to shop at, I never walk out of there without something. I like to save bad Christmas presents for next years Yankee Swaps :) Great way to get rid of things and save money at the same time.

    I’m totally a re-gifter..and NOT EVEN ASHAMED. I only re-gift if it’s something that would totally fit someone on my list. I love all gifts that I get…I’m NOT a ‘re-turner’. I love the thought behind gifts, but if there was not thought humpf…give ‘er away!

    I am not a habitual re-gifter but I have done it. Instead, if I get a gift I can’t or won’t use I will donate it. :)

    I have regifted before, but I’m not someone that does it all the time. Usually I only regift if it’s a nice item and I know that the other person will really appreciate it. If not, the offending item goes to Goodwill! :)

    I have a shelf in a closet just for future regifts. Our family even has a gift exchange and you have to regift no new purchases allowed. It can totally be used or made – but no Dollars spent makes for lots of giggles and a cheap good time.

    I have, on a couple of occasions regifted. I usually try to regift between my family members in different countries so that there’s no potential for obvious regifting.

    One year, and this is terrible, I sold all the gifts from my in-laws that I didn’t like on eBay. Eek. I felt so terrible afterwards that I never did it again.

    Honestly, I’m surprised it’s only 54% who are re-gifted. My mom’s a big re-gifter since we never had a lot of money growing up. I see nothing wrong with it as long as you make sure to match the gift to the right person. I’ll donate something rather than re-gift it if it doesn’t suit any of my friends of family.

    I may or may not have re-gifted my brother and sister-in-law a blanket we got as a wedding gift. In my defense, we were seriously broke back then.

    Since then, I may spruce up an old gift and give it again. Guilty.

Sometimes you get something your daughter/son won’t play with but you know other kids do like those toys (like Legos, for some reason my son doesn’t like them but other boys love them). So I save up those type of gifts and re-gift to other children or donate them.

    To be honest….I’ve re-gifted before. It was years ago but I did do it! lol I guess it really depends on the item and situation, like if it’s brand new and you know someone else would get good use or love it. For me, I’d much rather have something come from my heart and not some junk laying around because let’s be honest, if you’re great enough for me to give you presents, I’m not going to give you junk! :-)

    I am a definite re-gifter but on different levels and certain criteria. I do not give away things that have been made for my by family… I have given things that were unwrapped i.e.shoes a friend absolutely loved but never fit me properly and were no longer being made so one day I just gave them to her. They fit her perfectly and she wears them ALL the time! I wore them once…for about 10 minutes.

    I also will regift things we would never, ever use or duplicates but when they are given it is always to someone who I know it is the perfect gift for. We do not believe it giving out of obligation. The gift must be from the heart and something we would give them and something they would love!

If I give something to someone that I adore, and they don’t really like it and they have to spend their hard earned money to buy a gift for THEIR someone-I don’t have a problem at all if I can save them a few bucks by regifting the gift I gave them. Whew! that was a long run-on sentence!

    My Random act of kindness didn’t turn out exactly how I planned. Yesterday there was a homeless man standing outside the grocery store with a sign asking for money. I was trying to teach my kids to care about others, so when we were in the store we decided to buy him some food. Nice, right? But when we handed him the food he yelled because he asked for money – can’t we read?!!! and threw a loaf of bread at us… So I taught my kids a great lesson alright! Good job mommy! :)

    Every year I pick ornaments off the giving tree and buy a special present for each kid. I get more enjoyment out of this than all my other gift shopping combined and I know if makes a huge difference in that child’s life!

    listen, yes, i am a regifter. as long as it makes sense. for example, i just gave my friend my fave choc bar, a ceramic sign with a saying about calories, and a set of choc candles shaped like actual chocolate pieces(like you’d find in a gift box). the set of candles was given to my mom, who gave it to me to give to whomever, and i have been holding onto it for 4, count them, 4 stinking years! this was the perfect little gift pack, no?

    I am a re-gifter and am proud of it! I look at it as a way to “recycle” misfit toys/items/things that I know I won’t use but re-gift to someone who will find it useful. I also make a point of giving gifts to someone that I know they will like and at the same time, I would like in case it is ever re-gifted to me. Rule #1 in re-gifting: remember who gave it to you so you don’t re-gift back. My husband and I celebrated Christmas with my in-laws this past weekend. Interestingly enough, one of the gifts I received was something I gave to my mother in law last year! She forgot and I scored b/c I never give something I don’t like! :)

So when I won again I gave her my steaks.

    My husband and I regifted stuff from our wedding that we didn’t want. It was great to get rid of stuff we didn’t want and have gifts for friends’ weddings that we didn’t have to buy. I think regifting is fine as long as the original gifter doesn’t know and the receiver doesn’t know. It’s better than letting something go to waste or just taking up space.

  • Emily 15.12.2011 at 18:42

    I am not normally a regifter. Unless it’s something that we already have and someone needs more. Or if I’ve had it forever and we don’t use it it usually ends up as a white elephant gift.

So I did what I had to do and I am sure my friends liked those crystal platters and vases…or they regifted them too.;)

    I’m helping two friends decorate their new homes! A nursery for one friend who just had a baby girl, and a full-organization situation for a friend who can never seem to find her stuff! LOVE them both!!!

    oh ya… and the hubby and I randomly paid for a little boys snacks at the grocery store that he was trying to count out pennies and nickels to pay for. :) He was too cute and made us smile. We told him to just save the change for next time!

    Ok, I admit it, I have re-gifted a wedding gift of mine to one of my friends! It was WAY more her style than it was mine.. In fact I am pretty sure that when I received it, it was stashed away in her house for re-gifting purposes also!! Not a huge fan of re-gifting, unless its something fantastic:)

    Does it count when you use an old frame you may have gotten for a gift, and repaint it and use it for a new project, and then give it away? I don’t know. Regifting doesn’t bother me. If you’re not going to use it, you might as well give it to somebody who might. I’ve never really “regifted” any particular item, but if someone would regift an item I gave them, I really wouldn’t care.

    Sadly, I may have inherited this “re-gifting” idea from my mother. She’s been a school teacher forever and she’d get a MILLION things from her students and other teachers. Little homeade treats or little lotions and soups, all wrapped individually. Every year my stocking had tons of these little treasures in it. I loved it until I got older, and figured it out. She totally still does it too now that I’m married. We’ll get little hand-knitted pot holders that I KNOW my mom did not make. So funny. I try to be a little more sneaky about it than she is. My random act of kindness will be to leave treats at my neighbors doors this week. :) Thanks for the fun giveaway!!

I have done so in the past, but only an item I already had and new someone who wanted one. For the most part, I don’t re-gift as I don;t want to give someone something I don’t really care for. So my unwanted gifts usually end up in the Goodwill, Salvation Army,or a good ole fashion yard sale!!! I would surely enjoy that $250 give away for one of my many shopping trips!

    I recently gave an American Girl doll that my grandmother gave me when I was a child to my cousin’s little girl. I’m not sure it counts as re-gifting, though. It’s more like passing on an heirloom.

    I don’t tend to regift, but I don’t have a problem with it. Not everyone is great at choosing gifts, and I would rather someone end up enjoying the gift, rather than the recipient holding onto it out of guilt.

    A Home Goods gift certificate is certainly on my Christmas list, because I want home stuff, but I have very specific taste You can’t just tell someone to pick something up for you.

    Random act of Kindness…My husband and I do this every year. We contact a local church in our community and adopt a less fortunate family. They give us age, sex,sizes, and what they would most like for Christmas, we can’t always give them the exact item, but try too. Then we go out shopping for the family, deliver them to the church and the church gives to the family from us anonymously. I am Thankful for what we have and have been able to provide our family, So I Give Thanks and Then I GIVE to less fortunate. My mom raised me this way, she ran a program for 20 yrs. for less fortunate in our hometown of Missouri. There is no BETTER feeling than GIVING!!

    i only regift bags. the ONLY way i’d regift is if it was something unopened that i wasn’t going to use. don’t want things to go to waste. otherwise, i’d rather shop and find something special!

    I do regift if I it’s not really obvious and I am sure the person did not give it to me (or the person I got it from wouldn’t somehow see it at their house). I don’t think there is anything wrong with it personally.

    I have re-gifted a couple times in the past, but I only do it if I know the person receiving it will use it. I don’t like to give things to people that are useless to them.

    I have regifted once. My husband and I received a gift certificate to a restaurant we don’t like. My mom’s birthday was 2 months later and she loves it, so we gave it to her for her birthday. I see nothing wrong with it if you put some thought into who you’re giving it to and if it will be something they will appreciate receiving.

    But I would NEVER regift a Homegoods giftcard!!!!

    I have re-gifted before but I don’t do it all the time. If I get something I really can’t use, I appreciate it greatly but I don’t want stuff I don’t need cluttering up the house. So I pass it on to someone who will enjoy it or take it to a party gift exchange.

We’ve been trying to get into more giftcards, but as long as people are giving us stuff we don’t want/need that we can’t return we will keep re-gifting:) sydneyb@rocketmail.com

    Yes I am guilty. I regift all the time. And sometimes I really love the gift, I just need something in a hurry and grab what someone has already given me. I think it is perfectly Ok as long as you #1 don’t give it back to the person who gave it to you and #2 please make sure it is still new. Nothing used please!! No Home Goods store here, but that won’t stop me. I visit LA all the time for my Nanna fix so it will come in handy.

    Nope, not a re-gifter! At least not yet. 😉 However, I am a giver-to-Goodwill. Haha. Sometimes as much as 50% of what I get for Xmas ends up as a donation. So when I give gifts, I try to make sure it’s something the person wants, would like (with a 95% certainty), or I give them a gift card. Because we all deserve something we actually LIKE…and I don’t want them to end up a giver-to-Goodwill like me!

    Yep, I’m a re-gifter. But its more of a ‘stash it in the gift drawer until I have the perfect person for it’, as opposed to simply trying to ditch the gift with someone else. For instance, I got a reed diffuser as a gift; nice, but I have a toddler (read: spills!) and it wasn’t quite my scent. Fortunately, my colleague likes that scent and doesn’t have young kids. Voila!

    RAOK: A young man in front of me at Walmart this week only had $20 cash and only wanted to buy two items: a tree skirt and a box of ornaments – but he was $2.00 short. He was about to have the checker take one item back when I told him to give me the $20 and I would put his items on my tab, thus covering the remaining $2.00. I couldn’t stand the thought of his tree going bare. But the truth is, this exchange may have blessed my heart even more than his. :) And isn’t that what Christmas is about?

Here’s my rules though… an item can only be regifted if I know the person will appreciate it AND I’m 100% confident I didn’t first receive it from the person I’m regifting it to [unless of course it’s being regifted for the purposes of a white elephant gift exchange… in which case, it’s free game!] Love your blog… :)

    I’m embarrassed to admit that I have re-gifted before and I try to find every opportunity to do it. It blesses me to see others happy and I love doing that with gifts. I think it shows lots of character to sacrifice something of your own and give unto others!

    I am not a fan of re-gifting. I have never done it personally but have been it’s victim many times.
    A couple of years back my Brother and Sister in-laws gave me an ice cream maker still wrapped in the wedding paper. I would have known anyway cause anyone that knows me would not think to get me an ice cream maker. I think they got 2 at their wedding.
    A few years before that a co-worker gave me an ornament that I gave her the year before. She even said she saw it and it reminded her of me. I wonder why.
    It just takes away from gift giving. You are supposed to select that gift for the receiver, and buy it cause you want to. Also, I hate acting excited when I open it.
    Sorry re-gifting people!

    I’m not a re-gifter, but I always get stuff every year that I neither want nor need (is it really so hard to just ask?), and it ends up going to Goodwill.

    When giving a gift, I generally try to find something that particular person would enjoy. In that case, I would definitely re-gift. Also, for people I don’t know very well, I tend to re-gift if I can. (I don’t think I’d give the mailman a basket of body lotions…)

That is the purpose behind regifting, to give a gift to someone who would appreciate it more than you yourself would. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. I love, love, love Home Goods; wish we had one here in my town of Columbus GA, but we have to drive to Atlanta. No worries, I would happily make the drive for $250. Thanks! Marnita

    Think the thought process behind re-gifting is what matters…if it’s just a quick way to scratch someone off your list then it’s not OK but if you are passing it on to someone you know will love it or get use out of it can’t see anything wrong with that…I have done it a handful of times :O)

    I am not a regifter only because I’m afraid they’ll figure out it was a regift. 😉

    I don’t re-gift unless it’s the 2 lb candy cane my dad bought for my then 2 year old. It is turning into a white elephant gift this year.

    I don’t know if it is technically re-gifting, but my husband and I are only shopping for each other at thrift stores this year! We love all of the eclectic choices, and being able to re-purpose them! That being said, a $250 gift card to HomeGoods would be an awesome Christmas present as well!

    Thanks!

    The other day it was so cold out, like 2 degrees and I brought the two bell ringers some Hot Chocolate from Burger King to warm them up! They were so appreciative and it was a lot of fun to bless them for doing good for others.

    I have re-gifted before…not a lot though;) I don’t see a problem with it if the gift truly fits the receiver & thought went into the regifting. Thanks for the chance to win!

    Yes…I’m a regifter but here’s my rules (1) it has to be new and unopened obviously and (2) it has to be something I already have.

    I re-gift quite frequently. It has almost become ‘okay’ in my family to do such a thing. You can give an item a second chance at someone else’s house, or re-purpose something and make it even better!

    I just can’t bring myself to regift. I think way too long and too hard on the perfect gift for each person and what I come up with is usually never a gift I got and didn’t want.

    Yes! It’s evironmentally responsible, don’t you think? :) I also give thrifted items as gifts and then print out the recycled triangle with arrows symbol and put it on top of the gift wrap to bring attention to the fact. My kids think it’s cool.

    EEEK! I will admit I re-gifted twice in my life. But I was caught the last time! Oops! I was given a frame for my Wedding that was not my style, nice, but not for me. I thought the card had been stuck in the box, but when I went to regift it as a Wedding Shower Prize I couldn’t find it so I wrapped it up and brought it along to the shower… only to have the person who won the prize open it up and out pops the card. Gaaaaa!!!! I was MORTIFIED. Thankfully the person who gifted it to me wasn’t at the shower. I think it cured me of regifting!

I can’t really think of a time that I’ve done it, but for a party swap present or something, I think it is OK. Looking forward to seeing you on Nate again. You have been a busy girl.

    I am a re-gifter. I mainly do it though when our budget just doesn’t allow for giving something new. So I find something I haven’t opened or used and gift it away.
