Congratulations, Stephanie! Be sure to reply to the email you’ve been sent, and your new iPad Air will be shipped out to you!

Welcome to Day 12 of the “12 Days of Giveaways”! Our last day!

It’s the last day of holiday giveaways here on BEB, and I wanted to send you into the Christmas season with a bang! I held out on buying an iPad for years after they were introduced, finally buying one nearly two years ago. I couldn’t believe how much I used it, and wished that I had gotten one much sooner! It’s perfect for car trips – from watching videos to playing games – and I LOVE using it in the kitchen. A smartphone is typically too small for following along with a recipe, and I get nervous having my laptop too close to liquids, the stove and other kitchen land mines, so the iPad is perfect. Apple recently came out with the ultra-slim iPad Air, and I am giving one away! Read below for details on how to enter to win!

### GIVEAWAY DETAILS

One lucky winner will receive a 16GB iPad Air, in the color of their choice.

Alley @ Alley's Recipe BookonDecember 18, 2013at10:26 pmWe have so many traditions, it would be hard to pick one. My mom goes a little overboard with decorating, she could charge admission into her “Christmas house”… it feels like we’re in the North Pole every year.

Ellen SordionDecember 18, 2013at10:27 pmI love our yearly trip to the Christmas tree farm with our friends. We’ve been going together since before our kids could walk. Every year we do our best to find a sunny weekend (thankfully in CA that’s not too hard) bundle up and go play on the mountain for a while. Many trees are evaluated before the best one is chosen by each family. Then it’s Mexican food at a cute little taqueria on our way home.
