The Muddy £900 Christmas giveaway

Hmmm, you’ve reached an older feature - let’s get you up to date! Read our latest Competitions features here.

I love a challenge at Muddy Stilettos, so here goes – 12 gorgeous prizes to give away over the next 12 days, and your chance to snaffle an early Christmas present for yourself.

Have a good gander at the gifts below (don’t worry, it’s not The Generation Game, you don’t have to remember them all – though there is a cuddly toy!) and good luck peeps x

1. Dote silk ‘Liz Taylor’ night slip, £90.

Hollywood glamour hits home with this knockout silk night slip in vintage yellow from stylish young loungewear brand Dote London. The slip is knee length and bias cut, with contrast grosgrain straps and antiqued brass adjusters. Comes with drooling partner as standard.


2. Black and Brown London ‘Orla’ belt, £80. (WINNER ANNOUNCED)


Like a good man, a good belt is hard to find. Lucky for you then that I’ve done the legwork. Choose from a pink, silver or purple skinny belt in softest Italian leather from luxury accessories brand Black and Brown London. The belts are all designed and handmade in the UK and are stocked in the likes of Harrods, Harvey Nics and ASOS. Hold off on the mince pies and work that waistline lady!


3. Ruth Mastenbroek scent, £60. (WINNER ANNOUNCED)

Chesham-based perfumer Ruth Mastenbroek is at the top of the perfumery business – she’s created fragrances for the likes of Jo Malone, Kenneth Turner and Jigsaw and acted as President of the British Society of Perfumers. She now mixes her own exquisite perfumes from her Buckinghamshire studio and sells to the likes of Fenwick and Fortnum & Mason. You can win one of two stunning 50ml Eau de Parfum fragrances – Ruth Mastenbroek Signature, with fresh citrus top notes or the slightly lighter Ruth Mastenbroek Amorosa, with top notes of watermelon and green leaves.


4. Air Puppy Crew, £75. (WINNERS ANNOUNCED)


Fat Albert

Dangle Bear, but I guessing you worked that one out.

Murphy Dangle Bear


The gorgeous Air Puppy cuddly toys (45 characters in total) are made by a Beaconsfield company to exacting standards. I know this as my three year old likes to ‘helicopter’ his Hoppity rabbit around by the ears (think of it as a kind of toddler torture) and – miraculously – they are still attached. This is a fantastic prize for your children, your friends’ children or  – it’s OK, we know you do it – even you when you need a special cuddle.  Hoppity Bunny (36cm, £17.95), Murphy Dangle Bear (48cm, £19.95) or Fat Albert Bear (46cm, £34.95) may be arriving on your doorstep for Christmas so make room in the bed. Please be aware there will be three winners and one toy each. 

5. David Hampton purse, £225.

Just in case you needed one, here’s another brilliant reason to go on a spending spree. This fab Blue Nile Clutch Purse from luxe British leather brand David Hampton comes in Italian leather with striking azure blue croc print and champagne moire lining (I don’t know what moire means but doesn’t it sound great?). Make your partner sweat by filling up the 12 credit card pockets, 4 currency pockets and double coin section for maximum storage. Ker-ching!


6. Silver Fig hummingbird necklace, £80.

I absolutely love this necklace from Silver Fig, a new brand just launched in the UK. The husband and wife team have years of experience working for the likes of Tiffany & Co, Bulgari, DeBeers LV and Asprey and Garrard and it shows. The necklace comes in sterling silver with a 50cm chain, with the hummingbird itself measuring 22mm from beak to tail and 18mm base to tip wing. No need for nectar, it’s sweet enough.


7. Chicken slippers, Hen & Hammock, £22. (WINNER ANNOUNCED)

I featured these on Muddy Stilettos a while ago and loved them so much I snaffled a pair to give away. The felt slippers from Oxfordshire company Hen & Hammock are handmade in Nepal, and are made from the softest Tibetan lambswool with soft suede soles. They’re available in 3 sizes: 0-1 (best for a newborn), 1-2 (best for a one year old) 2-3 (best for a two year old). Beyond cute.

8 & 9 Seiff Fashion (£40) and Dennis Hopper The Lost Album (£35). (WINNERS ANNOUNCED)

Two stunning hardback books to lay nonchalantly on your coffee table from Prestel, one of the world’s leading publishers in the fields of art, photography, fashion and design.

Seiff Fashion (above) captures legendary fashion photographer Jeanloup Sieff’s most famous shots spanning a career of nearly 40 years including portraits of Yves Montand, Rudolf Nureyev, Twiggy and  Catherine Deneuve. Honestly, the photos are just beautiful.

Paul Newman, 1964, snapped by Hopper in Malibu

Dennis Hopper The Lost Album is a fascinating glimpse into the Sixties through Hopper’s lens. 400 vintage prints lay hidden in Hopper’s home until their discovery months after his death in 2010. While some are portraits of figures within Hopper’s circle of actor, artist, musician, and poet friends including Jane Fonda and Paul Newman, they also include striking shots from his extensive travels.

These prizes will be offered separately.

10. Gather & Hunt  ‘Glamper’ hamper, £40. (WINNER ANNOUNCED)

This gloriously-named hamper from Marlow’s new artisan foodie heaven Gather & Hunt includes: sea salted caramels, raspberry jam, smoked almonds, liquid sea-salted caramel sauce, oatmeal shortcake tube and pink lemonade. Glaminate, salivate and scoff!


11. Bespoke silver keepsake, £100, from Sol Solis Jewellery (WINNER ANNOUNCED)

Wycombe-based company Sol Solis creates jewellery in which fingerprints, miniature hand or footprints, drawing or signatures are imprinted. Sold through the brilliant Gorgeous Giggles children’s store in Princes Risborough, they make thoughtful gifts for new parents, grandparents or even children themselves. Take a look at the website and you can choose whatever you fancy up to the value of £100!

12. Le Belle organic skincare bundle, £80

The full Le Belle product range

OMG, the packaging of organic skincare brand Le Belle is gorgeous. But even better, all products are created and developed in the UK, and are free from parabens, mineral oil, fillers, PEG’s, phthalates, animal ingredients, artificial colours and synthetic fragrances. If that’s not groovy enough for you, the bottles are fully recyclable/refillable so you can feel doubly virtuous as you use its Cleansing Oil, Hydrating Toner and Anti-Ageing Daily Moisturiser bundle.
