What’s the best part of going to a party?  Let me answer that for you…. the Gift Bag!!!

Now… it doesn’t happen very often now that I’m an adult, but the best part about leaving my friends’ birthday parties between the ages of 6 and 10 was the gift bag.  Something about that super bouncy ball, fake lipstick key chain and mini coloring book with crayon just set my world right.

Because there aren’t nearly enough gift bags in my adult world, I knew that my rooftop picnic must… MUST have parting gift bags.

Three companies were generous enough to make these gift bags possible.   Here’s the part where I thank them for their awesomeness and give stuff away to you, and you, and you!

Rishi Tea not only donated all of the tea for me to brew for the event, they also included 200 instant tea packs attached to a 20%off coupon.  Remember the tea pot giveaway? Yea!  That was Rishi Tea too!  These people are seriously generous and they have really lovely tea.  I’ve been making their iced chamomile tea all summer…. no lie.

Baggu. Ooooh dearest and most darling Baggu.  Thanks for playing along with all of my shenanigans.  I’ve now had two Baggu, reusable bag giveaways, and Baggu was kind enough to donate 200 colorful reusable shopping bags to my picnic.  Boy of boy were they a hit!  Baggu, I’m pretty sure everyone at my neighborhood Trader Joe’s is jealous of me when I check out with these bags.  I play it cool.  I can’t blame them.

Then there’s Morning Glory Confections .  I’ve never been a huge fan of brittle until I got my hands on Max’s Morning Glory Brittle.  It’s hand made… (hand made!  I’ve seen his hands) brittle in flavors that I never knew could exist in brittle-land.  There’s Indian Curry with Pistachio, New Mexico Chili with Pumpkin Seed, Cocoa Nib Coffee Bean and Pecan, and my favorites Chai Tea with Cashew and Fleur de Sel with Peanut.  Max also sells his treats at the Melrose Farmer’s Market every Sunday… if you’re in Los Angels.  He was so kind to make these 200 brittle packages for me… by hand.  Thank you Max!  I think you’re rad!

So here’s where you win too!

See, I’ve got extra gift bags and I want you to have them!

You have between now and Sunday night at midnight PST to leave a comment on this post expressing your excitement.  I’ll pick 15… yes, 15 winners and ship off bags to them!  Whoa!  I think these packages are also light enough to be shipped international… so bring it on world!

BONUS!  I’m doing a more intimate gift bag giveaway on Twitter and on my Facebook Fan Page sometime Friday afternoon.  Instant winners… ooh yeah!  If you follow me on Twitter, or you’re a fan of Joy the Baker on the old Facebook, then you have an even better chance of nabbing a gift bag.  Keep an eye out this afternoon!  It’s going to be fuuuuun!
