DoSayGive's 1st Birthday + an AMAZING $850 "Gift" Giveaway!

DoSayGive’s First Birthday + An AMAZING $850 “Gift” Giveaway!


dallas-style-blogger-do-say-give-2068Would you believe if I told you that I had the idea for DoSayGive probably nearly four years ago?? It was a little something tucked into the back of my heart for I was too embarrassed to tell anyone that I wanted to start a blog about being gracious and lovely toward others!

But once I finally did take that first step last summer (which was buying a $50 web design template off Etsy!) I never looked back! This week, I am celebrating my blog’s first birthday by hosting the most INCREDIBLE giveaway. Seriously, y’all are going to LOVE this idea.


It has been so much fun to see this little blog of mine take shape this year. Sure, it’s been a steep learning curve and I’ve made lots of mistakes (and typos!) along the way. But it has been a joy and a blessing for me and my family. And I can’t thank my sweet, faithful friends who have cheered me on this past year.


I particularly want to thank the companies who took a leap of faith in collaborating with me when I was just a no-name blogger with just a few hundred followers. So this week I will be reposting some of my post popular gift ideas from some of the fabulous companies that I’ve written about this past year.

Even more exciting, to celebrate DoSayGive’s One Year Birthday, these companies have graciously help me put together an AMAZING “Gift” GIVEAWAY just for DoSayGive readers. And when I say amazing, I really mean it. This is the the biggest single giveaway I have done on DoSayGive and it is totally unique!


Since DoSayGive’s bread and butter is wonderful gift ideas, I thought it would be so nice for one of my readers to win 12 FABULOUS gifts to have on hand: for birthdays, baby and wedding gifts, housewarming and thank you gifts, and more! (Of course, you can always “gift” some of these to yourself, too;). Here are the details :
