Ebay Love to Give $100 Giveaway!

Saving Dollarsand Sense

I don’t know about you, but every Christmas I spend a lot of time trying to come up with THE perfect gift for each person on my list.

I never want to give someone a gift that will never be used or enjoyed. I don’t think that means I need to spend a lot of money, but I love the look on the gift recipients face when they open their gift to find something they will really love.

Samantha Bee and Ebay have teamed up to offer you the “Unwrap Attack” videos this holiday season.

What’s an “Unwrap Attack” you may be asking?

It’s that moment when the person opening a gift realizes what it is and they cannot contain their excitement.  It’s that look I hope to see each time I give a gift to someone I love.

The eBay Love to Give web destination is a hub that hosts all of Samantha Bee’s eBay webisodes and a gallery of consumer-created “unwrap attack” videos that will showcase some of the most hilarious and heartwarming gift giving and receiving moments captured on video – moments of pure emotion when people receive the “just-right” gift.

The following Samantha Bee videos are available:
Samantha Bee Causes an Upwrap Attack
The Unwrap Attack Specialist
Kids and the Unwrap Attack

The eBay Unwrap Attack Creator on Facebook allows you to see your loved ones have an Unwrap Attack before the holidays. Upload a photo, choose a gift from eBay, and watch how they react when receiving that just-right gift

I’m giving a $100 Ebay Gift Card to one lucky ready here!

    The official “unwrap attack” for me this year would be a nice shiny car in the driveway. Although I understand you cannot wrap a car, you can put a really huge red sparkling bow on it. I drive an old beat up Jeep. The windows no longer roll down and are held up with cardboard. My hatch does not open so it is simply a driver no hauler. Not to mention, no heat!! In the blistering cold weather, I drive around with blankets, winter coat, gloves, and ear muffs attempting to get warm. IT NEVER WORKS!! I am unable to cart my nephew around due to no heat. This Jeep is simply mine and mine only. No one wants to ride with me! :( I know that my Christmas will not consist of a new car in the rough economy, however I can still hope for the best. But and IPAD will do for my second “unwrap attack”! :)Happy Holidays!

    However, I will tell you about my niece’s unwrap attack moment. Several years ago, my Mom found a pair of long red flapback pajamas at a resale shop. She purchased them and hid them until Christmas Eve. On Christmas Eve, after the kids went to bed, my Mom put the flapback jammies under the tree, draped over some of the presents.

    When my niece and nephew got up on Christmas morning and started opening their gifts, they were astonished to see the jammies, and my niece exclaimed “Grandma, Santa dropped his drawers under our tree!”

    It is now tradition for Santa to leave his jammies under the tree.
