The holiday season is officially here. It’s an exciting time, but one we know can be especially tough for our members, who work incredibly hard to make the festive season special: delivering our presents, doing up our homes, and bringing festive food right to our tables.
And with many shops shut and people reluctant to leave their homes, our members’ efforts this December will be more essential than ever.
That’s why, this winter, we want to give something back. We’ve teamed up with our friends at Gophr, Stuart, TaskRabbit, Laundryheap, Urb-it and Green Tomato Cars to bring their workers a festive season they'll never forget through our 12 Days of Giftmas Giveaway!
What is Giftmas?
Every day, for the first 12 days of December, we're running big prize draws for all these independent workers, with dozens of gifts to be won. These gifts have been specially selected to make our members' winters warmer, brighter and more merry. There'll be one gift given out on the 1st December, two gifts on the 2nd December, and so on - that comes to 78 gifts in total!
What prizes are there?
On the first day of Giftmas, one lucky elf got a whole week of Nando's for free.
On the second day of Giftmas, two lucky elves got a free pair of wireless headphones from Bose.
On the third day of Giftmas, three lucky elves got a pair of cycling gloves from Loffi to keep their hands warm this winter.
On the fourth day of Giftmas, four lucky elves got a Quad Lock mount kit to keep their phone in sight on the go.
On the fifth day of Giftmas, five lucky elves got a six-month supply of Biosynergy protein powder to keep them strong.
