Over the holiday break, one of my favorite things to do is cozy up by the fireplace with a good book. It’s a time of year when I’m actually able to put the to-do list on hold, enjoy my family and friends, and rejuvenate with a little ME time.

Quite often, it’s the simplest things in life that make me happy….

The warmth of a hand-stitched quilt

A good cup of coffee in a beautiful mug

A “pull me in” book

So, I’ve gathered these 3 items to giveaway to one of you!

Handmade Quilt

A while back, I fell in love with these kantha throws from Dignify that are handmade in Bangladesh using reclaimed sari cloth. How cool is that?

Each one is hand-stitched with care and unique in design. No two quilts are exactly the same.

Want to know the best part? The women who make these throws were once living on the street, often forced into sex work or in a vulnerable state of heading there. Now they have better lives! You can read more about their stories.

If you win, you will be able select a kantha throw of your own thanks to Dignify! (note: throws below are subject to availability)

How can you bring a bit of joy to your everyday? For me, it’s sitting down and enjoying a cup of coffee or tea without any distractions.

And it’s so much better when the mug is as beautiful as this one I picked up at a local shop.

If you win, I’ll be sending a mug just like it to you!


Readers know there’s no better way to escape than with a good book. Around here, life’s a little busy at the moment, but I have a list of good-reads I can’t wait to get my hands on after Christmas, starting with The Paying Guests by Sarah Waters. Have you read it?

If you win, you’ll receive a $20 Amazon Gift Card to pick out a book of your own!

Total value of all 3 items is over $128!

  1. I like the Soul and Slow throws for myself. I’d get the Ignite one for my mom though if I win.

  2. I love the kantha throw. I have a kantha bed spread gifted to me by my mother.. and I love it so much. This would be a wonderful gift to win. Thank you for this promotion. And the tea cup is so beautiful. Thank you for the chance to win.

      1. I’m currently binge-reading the Ian Rutledge mystery series by Charles Todd, relatively gentle mysteries with very little violence, but good characters and puzzles.

  3. I’ve been really into kantha lately and so this is perfect! I like Borealis, Falls, Lumiere and Space…so many gorgeous designs!

  4. So hard to choose, they are all equally beautiful, but if I really had to choose one, I “Still Kantha Throw” is actually a dream. I love what dignify stands for, and how it is fair trade and ethically-made. Definitely would invest in one because you just made me fell in love with ALL the products. Thank you!

  5. I love all of them, but I would love to have the Sunbeam Kantha Throw. Wow very generous of you!

  9. they are all so beautiful but the bean kantha throw is my favorite. anything that mustard-y color i just love.

  10. The INCANDESCENT KANTHA THROW would be awesome in my livingroom! All of these throws are so lovely!!!

    My fave throw is the Falls, something about that color combo gets me every time.
    Thanks for the chance!!

  12. Shauna, this is such a beautiful giveaway. I already ordered a Kantha Throw as a Christmas gift for someone special after seeing these. I love what this company stands for. I would love to win any of these amazing gifts for myself. Merrry Christmas!
