Just look at a few of their unique gifts- like these darling monogrammed candles:

Swagger Gifts with Attitude

Vanilla Bean? Cinnamon Spice? Honeysuckle Vine? Yes, please! I can almost smell them from here. Actually, no, I can’t, and that makes me really, really sad because I really, really want to! :) The tall candle with beautiful brown scripty monograms would look *gorgeous* on my living room mantle. Or bookcase. Or end table. :D

Oh my gosh.

OH my–love it! I would get the candles for sure! So much fun! Thanks for the chance to win!

Joni S. April 9, 2010 at 11:03 pm

I would absolutely love to win these items because I love, love, love candles but most importantly, I know so many others that love candles!! I love to give to others as opposed to buy for me. I know that is how I am to live my life.

I love to give to others even though I live on SS Disability because I love the faces of the ones I give to. I believe they know that I put time into a gift when it is something they want and to just see their faces (and they know I live on very little $$$) so with them knowing I put thought into a gift ~ their faces are precious! Ooooh, I’m knitting scarves for the girls in the family for Christmas already!! LOL! I just love doing for others!!

IF anyone has not read Cami Walker’s book ~ 29 Gifts – How a month of giving can change your life…..you should! Like Cami I also have MS and have had for almost 29 years. I have lived in the manner Cami talks about in her book and on her website for years and I am absolutely convinced that due to living in that manner, along with having a very positive attitude (My ‘Tude!!!) that is why I am not confined to a wheelchair as I was told I would be by 1986, in November 1981. I’m just living a Happy, Positive little life!

Thanks so much Amanda, for the opportunity to win!

BIG Hugs!
