Build-A-Bear Valentine's Giveaway!



It's Valentine's week and what better way to celebrate than with a Build-A-Bear Bear!! I love Build-A-Bear Workshop. Yes, I know I am 50 years old but I still love plush toys. I have a few Build-A-Bear plush bears and still need to get more. My favorite is my Darth Vader bear.


I always drop hints to my hubby that I need a more bears but he ignores me. But maybe this Valentine's I will get a new bear! Build-A-Bear is the perfect place for Valentine's gifts. Whether you are shopping for your kids, spouse, a friend or your mother-in-law, a Build-A-Bear makes a perfect gift.


Here are some heart-warming stats from a new survey from Build-A-Bear Workshop. While you may believe Valentine’s Day is just a “Hallmark” holiday, this survey reveals Americans are far less cynical:

* Almost all (92%) of Americans agree that Valentine’s Day is not just about romance – it’s about showing people you care about them.
* 82% believe the holiday is more about love than just spending money.
* Americans prefer to give Valentines (73%) versus receive them (27%).
* Americans prefer to be gifted with experiences (82%), versus more tangible gifts (18%).
* A personalized gift (64%) is preferred to a handmade (22%), or expensive gift (8%).


Plus, when you shop at Build-A-Bear Workshop, you are also helping the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The Build-A-Bear “Million Hearts, Million Wishes, Million Ways to Help” campaign is going to help a lot of kids get their final wish. You can help by sharing photos of your “heart ceremony” when you wish on a limited edition “One in a Million” red satin heart for your stuffed animal. For every photo shared on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or Pinterest with the hashtag #sharebabwwishes, Build-A-Bear Workshop will donate $1 to Make-A-Wish, up to $30,000. Build-A-Bear Workshop guests can also make monetary donations to support Make-A-Wish at checkout in stores nationwide and online through March.



So this year, give a gift with heart this Valentine’s Day at Build-A-Bear Workshop. Build-A-Bear is making it a little easier by offering my readers a $25 gift card to get them started! YAY! So if you want a chance to win, enter below on the Rafflecopter widget.
