Congratulations to this giveaway’s random winner, CPlusE, whose most successful costume to date was a gypsy. Come back on October 4 for another great giveaway.

Halloween is my absolute favorite holiday. I love it all: Decking out the yard with completely over-the-top decor, dressing up as someone else in a fun Halloween costume and greeting friends with intentionally-creepy food and cocktails. Plus, any spider webs that might get missed just add to the spooky vibe.

With just over a month left until the big day, it’s time to start putting up Halloween decorations and planning parties. That’s why we’re giving away this party prize pack from Grandin Road, an online style retailer that cares even more about Halloween than I do. Read on to see the whole giveaway list and enter for a chance to win this prize.

Congratulations to our winner, Stacey, who says that the best wedding gift she ever gave was a margarita machine to a fun-loving couple. Check back next month for another great giveaway!

We are smack-dab in the middle of wedding season — one of our very own D-Happ writers is even tying the knot this summer. (Ahem, Briana!) Once you’ve crafted that summer wedding outfit, there’s one more thing to consider: the perfect gift. If you’re still searching for something to delight the happy couple, consider this month’s Freebie Friday giveaway: A Starbucks Verismo machine that will let them (or you!) create favorite coffee shop drinks at home.

The Starbucks Verismo machine crafts single-serving sizes of the same espresso drinks and brewed coffee served in the company’s stores around the world. With the machine’s specially-formulated pods, you can make everything from lattes to mochas to Starbucks’ signature coffee blends — all in the comfort of your own home.

One lucky winner will receive a Starbucks Verismo 580 machine in their choice of hue: silver, black, burgundy or champagne.  The winner will also receive 12 espresso pods and 12 milk pods.

Father’s Day is around the corner — have you found the perfect gift yet? If your dad is more into tablets, apps and surround sound than golfing and fishing, this Freebie Friday giveaway might be the perfect present. One lucky winner will take home this high-tech toaster from Magimix.

Freebie Fridays - Magimix Vision Toaster

The Magimix Vision Toaster is the only model with a viewing window to let you watch the toasting process in action. Quartz heating elements produce crisp, uniformly brown toast, and the model comes in three glossy colors: black, red and almond cream.

This is sure to be a showpiece in your dad’s high-tech kitchen. Already got Dad’s Day covered? It would be an equally cool gift for a new college grad’s first apartment, or a gift to yourself for being savvy enough to check out Design Happens’ monthly giveaway. The choice is yours!

Update 10/15/12:  Congratulations to this month’s winner, Donna, who says she likes to make her Halloween decorations “as scary as skeletons, but my 4-year-old twins have always been around those at Halloween time so they don’t see them as scary.” Congratulations, Donna! Check back next month for another great freebie.

There are two types of Halloween folk: The ones who deck their yard out in fake blood, life-sized zombies and motion-activated vampires and the ones who stick to jolly pumpkins and mildly creepy ghosts.

Since I can’t watch a horror movie without developing a new irrational fear, you can probably guess which camp I fall into. But whether you go for the blood and guts or would rather keep it PG, you’ll love this month’s giveaway: a collection of outdoor Halloween decorations from Grandin Road.

Halloween Reversible Pumpkin - Grandin Road
First on the giveaway list: This creepy animated pumpkin. Sure, it looks innocent enough, but flip on the switch and it turns “evil” — complete with a diabolical laugh — when unsuspecting folks walk by.
