I mentioned last week that I got to play blogger Secret Santa (not to be confused Dirty Santa or Bad Santa or Ricky the Santa Monkey, which is an odd tale of Chrismas past here at Casa Blonde Mom Blog) through a Mom Central campaign for JC Penney.
JC Penney, or Penney’s as we say in the South, has a new custom holiday tag that allows you to record a personal audio greeting for the lucky recipient as well as listen to your special audio greeting, thanks to the magic of the smart phone. Even someone like me, who rarely scans QR codes, can figure it out and it’s a fun, easy way to add a little personal touch to a gift.
I provided a couple of hints for my Secret Santa blogger buddy to guide her in her online shopping and look what arrived on our doorstep yesterday!
I scanned the QR tag on my gift with my phone and was greeted with a nice holiday message from Mary at Sweeping Me. Thanks Mary! I love the gift you sent!
My Secret Santa buddy was Jennifer from The Rebel Chick (love her blog name.) Jennifer likes to cook and entertain so I chose a gift that would be something she could use for guests. I hope she likes her gift!
I really felt like I was living on the edge by choosing this candy apple red cookware. This is what happens when you’re old and married. Cookware in pretty colors is EXCITING! Our cookware is going on 15 years old and has seen better days so I thought I’d treat us to a house gift that we could really make use of.
Wait, this means hubby is going to expect me to cook more in 2012, doesn’t it…(ha!)
I wrote this review while participating in a campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of jcpenney and received a jcpenney Secret Santa Gift and a promotional item to thank me for participating. All opinions expressed are my own.
