Win £2000 of awesome festive prizes

Yeah alright, alright, I’m starting my 12 Days of Christmas comp slightly late but what’s a week between friends? I’ve collated a dozen gifties worth nearly £2,000 – yes £2,000 people! – and every day I’ll give away one prize, chosen from newsletter subscribers, and facebook, IG and twitter followers. The more ways you show your affection for Muddy Stilettos, the more chances you have of winning!

Sign up to as many as you can to maximise your chances of winning one of the 12 prizes – well 14 actually, as two of them are split in two but let’s not be picky!

Sign up to the newsletter, follow, comment and share on FB, Instagram and twitter and go bag yourself one of these whopper prizes, below. BTW, media followers must  follow, comment and share to win on those channels so don’t just click ‘like’ and sit back with your mocha or you won’t be entered!

Let’s crank up the conveyor belt of Christmas prizes on the Muddy Generation Game, shall we? No cuddly toys or electric meat cutters unfortunately, but there’s a whole lot of cashmere and leather if that’s any consolation.

IRIS LOUNGEWEAR, £160

I’ve been a massive fan of Iris fashion ever since I stumbled across the store years ago in Queen’s Park. It’s grown to three London offerings plus a fantastic Amersham addition. We have a dark grey hooded lurex hooded top with ribbing detail at the hem and cuffs, plus marl lurex joggers to give away in either S, M or L. Ideal for January slouching in at home!

 HOLY COW LEATHER OVERNIGHTER, £110

Table lamps? Pah! These mouth-blown frosted glass ball lamps are waaaay cooler, but then you’d expect from Buckingham-based Muddy Award winners and all round cool cats Secret Messages Interiors. There are three sizes in the one prize – a large, medium and small – and the lights come with a timer function requiring 3 x AA batteries (not included).

SEASONAL GARDEN SPRUCE UP WORTH £300

For this prize he’ll chat with you on the phone to work out the dish you want to know how to master, come to your house with all the ingredients and show you and up to 5 friends how to it done. Wine expert Greg Jones, also formerly of the Sir Charles Napier, will explain the vino choices to go with the meal. Then you can scoff the lot.

PRESTEL, £110

I’ve worked with Prestel for a couple of years because I find their books are just so beautiful and thought-provoking. Great Pubs of London, The Monet Cookbook and It’s A London Thing will be one bundle giveaway (£67)  and Oskar, Great Works and Before I Wake Up will be a second giveaway (£42.50).

    These prizes look fab. Can’t wait to see who wins (ideally me, obviously!).

    One thing though, FB shares as a mandatory entry method is against their rules, and also excludes those who share to private profiles. Di Coke explains this on her blog. You are allowed to ask people to share but it can’t be a condition of entry (not sure on IG competitions, but given FB own them, might be worth checking out what you can and can’t do on there too).
