Merry Mixer Giveaway!

Merry Mixer Ornament

I was at Hallmark the other day picking up Christmas cards, and I stopped to peruse their holiday ornament selection. Over the past couple of years, the store has been adding more foodie-themed ornaments to their collection and this year they have the perfect one for bakers: a miniature stand mixer! The ornament, which is dated 2010, is bright red and has a cute retro look to it. The mixer doesn’t have an movable parts, but it’s not difficult to picture the little paddle attachment mixing up a batch of cookie dough. The ornament is called the Merry Mixer, and I picked two up while I was there, one for my Christmas tree and one to give away to a lucky reader!

To enter the giveaway, just leave a comment below with your favorite food-related holiday present – one you’ve either given or received – before Thursday at 12pm PST. One winner will be chosen at random and I’ll ship the ornament out asap. Be sure to leave your e-mail address in the comment form (it won’t be visible on the site) so that I can contact the winner.

For more gift ideas, check out my 2010 Holiday Gift Guide for Bakers or pick up a copy of The Baking Bites Cookbook! And don’t forget to enter your gingerbread creations into my Holiday Gingerbread Cookie Contest, too!

Update: Comments are now closed. Thanks for playing, everyone. The winner is Erin of Erin Cooks!

    COOKIES! That is the best. All the females in my family do a cookie exchange every year and we all make our own and exchange them. We had to make 16 dozen one year! I think it’s more personal then any store bought gadget 🙂

    So cute! Most of my gifts are food-related. I love my Le Creuset pot, but I love my Zyliss garlic press almost as much.

    Ooohhh….It’s hard to choose just one thing, cause I really enjoy all baking-related gifts. Let’s see…for my favorite I would have to choose anything related to Halloween or Christmas. It could be a cake pan, packaging (i.e. cupcake liners), sprinkles, cookie cutters, etc. That would be the best!

    I’m getting my first stand mixer this year, so excited! Eep! But I love to give away chocolate dipped stuff…pretzels, nutter butters, etc.

    my mother in law once gave me a beautiful pie dish, a complete set of measuring cups and spoons in cute colors, and teeny mini cookie cutters. which we promptly used to make a batch of sugar cookies together. that’s what you call approval by your new family!
