Our Baby Is Turning 1! Celebrate With $1,000+ in Giveaways

balloons The Stir is celebrating our First Birthday tomorrow, March 15, and oh how we've grown! Usually when someone has a birthday, they are the one who gets all the cool gifts (except for the three crappy ones that always get returned or regifted), but here at The Stir, we're shaking things up.

To thank you, our loyal readers, for helping us reach our one-year milestone, we're going to share the birthday love. Don't feel embarrassed you didn't get us anything -- all we’ve ever wanted has been your comments and support, and you’ve blown us away.

Now’s our chance to return the sentiment and shower you with LOTS of presents. Yay!


Every hour on the hour starting at 10 a.m. EST, we'll be handing out $100 gift cards from some of our favorite merchants, like Lowe's, Dunkin' Donuts, Hanna Andersson, and Kohl's. (Our first contest -- a $100 Gift Card to Dunkin' Donuts -- is already live. Watch for the rest up till 5 p.m. today. All you have to do is sign in and follow the instructions in the giveaway post to enter. Overstock.com, Target, The Children's Place, and Zappos have also joined the party -- with all these great vendor giveaways, you may want to set an alarm every 60 minutes to remind you that you have another chance to win! We'll also be marking the occasion with other fun posts ... heck, we might even treat ourselves to a Tropical Sparkler or two ... or three ...

We couldn't have gotten here without you and can't wait to see some of you walk away with some great Stir birthday swag. Feel free to eat cake and ice cream with your hands and play with the wrapping paper, too -- it is our first birthday, after all. Happy birthday to us, and good luck! Here’s to many more ...
