H&R Block $300 Gift Card Giveaway ends 12/5


The following is a sponsored post, all opinions are my own.

The holidays are a wonderful and magical time of year, everyone becomes more giving and fun and festive events happen all the time. I love to give gifts so I really love the holidays but the holidays can also be really stressful. The financial toll and the pressure some people can feel to spend can be overwhelming. I know that I would be happy even if I did not get a single Christmas gift but as a mom I want to buy it all for my kids, even the stuff we can’t afford. This year H&R Block is offering  a solution to help you out with all of your holiday expenses. The H&R Block Emerald Advance® line of credit provides applicants with up to $1,000 without having to jump through lots of hoops. The application process starts on November 25th which means the line of credit could be available in time for the holidays!


This holiday consider setting a strict budget limiting yourself on how much you spend on the people on your list. Shop sales and deals and be open to new ideas so that you can spend your money wisely. In the spirit of saving money and not going overboard I put together 5 fabulous gifts that are all under $20 to show you that gift giving does not have to break the bank, I know I would be thrilled to receive any one of these great items.

5 fabulous gifts under $20



To help with your holiday shopping I teamed up with H&R Block to give one of my fabulous readers a $300 GC, that will buy a lot of $20 gifts!
