A Very Special Christmas® Special Three Disc Compilation
"It's Christmas Eve/In Hollis, Queens/ Mom's cooking chicken and collard greens...." If 20 years later, you or someone you love STILL know all the words of this Christmas rap by Run DMC, then you need to get them this cool collection of holiday pop tunes by artists like Sting, Willie Nelson and Bon Jovi. One hundred percent of the proceeds of sales of all the CDs in this series directly support the Special Olympics worldwide.

Global Giftwrap
I'm always looking for meaningful wrapping paper, you know, something different than the Santas wearing sunglasses. And I've found it in Global Giftwrap! I love their designs that incorporate Irish Celtic crosses and the claddagh symbol, Chinese double happiness characters, and Christmas poinsettias with wishings of Feliz Navidad. Global Giftwrap has more than 25 designs celebrating Asian, Latino, Indian and Irish heritage. Co-founders, neighbors & mothers Aparna Huprikar, who is of Indian descent, and Maggie Shore, who is of Irish descent, wanted to teach their kids the significance of their cultures and family heritage, which helped spur the creation of Global Gift Wrap.

I have 2 sets Global Giftwrap for giveaway! Each set contains 3 different Chrsitmas holiday wrapping papers. Leave a comment below for a chance to win.

Merry merry!
