Celebrating Cyber Monday with a LivingSocial Deal Bucks Giveaway!

DSC_0411 I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday and ready or not, here comes the sprint to Christmas!  Before you can finish the Thanksgiving leftovers, you’re surrounded by the holidays down every shopping aisle and inundated with emails for free shipping and discounts.  If you’re looking for an unexpected and extraordinary gift that doesn’t require a trip to the mall, I’ve got you covered!

This week I’m partnering with LivingSocial your best source for  experiential, outside of the box gifts.    In addition to great hotel deals and travel packages to take you all over the world, at LivingSocial you can find heart-racing activities such as jet skiing, jet flight simulation and race car driving or more cerebral pursuits such as cooking or photography lessons and, the best part, you can find them at a great discount!

LivingSocial is giving one of my lucky readers $50 in LivingSocial Deal Bucks that he or she can use to gift a new experience to someone they care about this year.   The choices are endless and there’s something for everyone on your list, from a limo ride tour of the best holiday lights to cooking lessons to a snowy winter retreat. Most LivingSocial deals can be gifted – just look for the gift icon. Whether you want to give the gift immediately or schedule it for a future date, the printable gift vouchers and digital delivery options make wrapping a cinch.

  If you’re a local reader in Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill there are some great gifts available now under your local tab.  To name just a few:

 For the foodie on your list:  gift a cooking class at Revolution led by chef Jim Anile.  Themes include brunch, seafood, Cajun, Thai, French provincial, and more.

 For the little girl who dreams of a pony: gift Horseback riding lessons at Winslow Stables.00bb1d60-c9f3-4f1b-be36-4ed7f681dd8b_340_q60

For the Martha Stewart wannabe: you can’t go wrong with a BYOB floral design class and DIY floral design video at The English Garden Florist of Raleigh.
