12 Days of Christmas

Day 1: 3 Night Stay Plus Travel Courtesy of Nimmo Bay

HO HO HO!!! I’m sooooo excited to announce that it’s officially DAY 1 of Santa Jilly’s Christmas Giveaways!!! For those of you who may be new to this, “Santa Jilly’s 12 Days Of Christmas Giveaways” originally started 11 YEARS AGO as a way to thank all of YOU for being so amazing and supportive throughout the year. Every year I partner with some of my favourite brands and companies to not only spread some holiday cheer (we all need some of that this year!!) but to also give you the opportunity to win some special items and ADVENTURES that I hold near and dear to my heart!

This year we have a total of 56 prizes which means 56 of YOU will walk away with an amazing GIVEAWAY! These 56 prizes equal to a WHOPPING value of approximately $85k CAD!

Well, are YOU ready to get things kicked off and see all of the details of today’s giveaway?? Well, I won’t hold out on you any longer … On DAY 1 of Santa Jilly’s 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways we are gifting you … a 3 Night Stay Plus Travel courtesy of Nimmo Bay!

I know… I know… while there isn’t much travel happening at the very moment (I miss it so much 😭!), but hopefully, we travel again very soon!! And when that happens one lucky winner will be exploring and experiencing all of the magical things that Nimmo Bay has to offer!

If you follow me on social media, you’ll know that Justin, Tori, Charles, and I escaped Kelowna a couple of months back for a little getaway to the west coast for a beautiful stay at Nimmo Bay Resort! I will be the first to admit that this place is quite possibly Heaven on Earth!

Nimmo Bay is a family-owned and operated intimate resort, remotely located in the heart of the Great Bear Rainforest. Nimmo Bay tailors wild adventures for guests who seek a unique and meaningful experience in nature. To be honest, I genuinely believe that even if you didn’t book any additional excursions and just explored the resort, your experience would still be top-notch! The entire team is excellent and they are always seeing what they can do to make your stay that much better! However, lucky for you, this giveaway INCLUDES guided activities such as kayaking, paddleboarding, visiting the floating sauna, local bear viewing, and SO much more!

If you would like to know more about our experience at Nimmo Bay Resort and witness the MAGIC through our eyes, make sure to check out my full recap, here! However, if you would prefer to experience this pure bliss through your own eyes … make sure to enter this amazing giveaway below!
