In my fantasy kitchen/cooking world, there are several stores that I could spend the rest of my life in. No, really. Like, hide out under one of the large urns so as not to be discovered and make myself at home. For forever.

Since I live smack dab in the middle of Wisconsin, I don’t get the lavish opportunity to visit any of my favored kitchen/home stores very often. But when I do leave my neck of the woods and traverse the state to Chicago, Minneapolis or even far out west to Portland (where my in-laws live), I always make a point to stop somewhere and gaze and gawk at all the things I am mentally adding to my wish list.

Among the stores that I love, Williams-Sonoma, Pottery Barn and Crate & Barrel rank right up there. So today, I’m giving away TWO $100 gift cards to your store of choice from my favorite list of three. I’ll contact the winners and they can specify to which store they’d like to receive the gift card.

To enter, leave ONE comment on this very post telling me the #1 item topping your wish list right now (even if it isn’t kitchen/cooking related).

My top wish list item (dear husband, are you reading this??) is this glass drink dispenser from Pottery Barn. Major Love. Major.

I’ll announce the winners on this post probably right around Thursday morning when my favorite and final giveaway of the series will appear. Oh, I can’t wait!

{Giveaway sponsored by me. Sad as it is to admit, none of the three stores listed above have any stinking idea who I am. I’m off to mourn that knowledge…and pore over their catalog pages to add more delicious things to my wish list.}

  9. Claudia says:

    A sink in my laundry room!

  10. Brooke Bumgardner says:

    I would love a new set of cookware!

  11. Jessica says:

    I’m wishing for a new toaster. Mine is approaching it’s 10 year anniversary.

  12. RVH says:

    I really want a kindle right now because there are too many things I would love to read and don’t have the space for all the books, but I’d also love some serving dishes because I think we end up entertaining nearly every weekend in our newly remodeled kitchen/dining area.

  13. Janae says:

    I would absolutely LOVE a really really nice blender! We are huge fans of smoothies in our home, yet don’t have a great blender that will really blend everything together and not leave huge chunks. Thanks!!!

  14. Evonne W says:

    I have my eye on one of those panini presses.

  15. Janette says:

    My number one item is a bread knife. Two years of marriage and I still haven’t bothered to get one.

  16. Kim says:

    I have been wanting a vitamin for so long!

  17. Randi says:

    i need curtains

  18. Allison C says:

    I’m working on a new play rooms for my kiddos, there are too many things to list that I’d love to have from Pottery Barn! But probably some of their super cute storage bins would be top on my list šŸ™‚

  19. Maddi says:

    piping tools of course!

  20. Liz K. says:

    A playroom! Here is a funny for you. So we have all these lovely new Christmas toys in our kids rooms and a 3 year old with an attitude. (Girls are fun and cute, and mine is my best friend, but boy she gives me a run for my money. Congrats on yours, you will absolutely love having a girl, but I’m sure you’ll totally understand what I’m saying. ) My husband keeps sending her to time out in her room, and every time he does I just laugh at him and remind that she LOVES that kind of time out. Oh, and to add to it, I totally should have a play room by now. I married a carpenter! But don’t they always say the shoemakers kids never have shoes šŸ˜‰ The goal is to have it done this spring, and I could totally use a Pottery Barn gift card to decorate and organize. Unless I get selfish and want to get a different gift card and organize the kitchen. Sorry to ramble on.

  21. Tamara says:

    A food processor!!

  22. Jesica Mangum says:

    The top thing on my list at the moment would be to organize my pantry!! I’m almost done with a small kitchen remodel, but my pantry hasn’t been touched. It needs some love and a gift card to one of those stores would get it going! Thanks for the giveaway!!

  23. Laurel Gampe says:

    I would love to get dinnerware and my top choice would be Williams-Sonoma.

  24. Veronica says:

    I knew my answer immediately because I’ve been trying to justify it for years…. Williams and Sonoma’s iSi Mini Cream Whipper. Is there anything more magical than pouring in cream, sugar and vanilla and pushing a button instead of mixing and wondering and adding more?! Anything with a N2O cartridge has to be cool, right? Why mini? So I could find some other cool gadget I never knew I needed and get that too!

  25. Lydia says:

    I need a new toaster oven!

  26. Keri McWilliams says:

    I would love to start the New Year with fresh linens for my dinning room table! My favorite place to enjoy my family!

    A new camera!

  28. Megan says:

  29. Valerie Treichel says:

    Breville Toaster Oven!

  31. Natalie says:

    New knives!

  32. Ky says:

    I would love a food dehydrator for the yummy things that come from the garden! Thank you!!

  33. Kristin says:

    The list is mighty. I’d really have fun at any of those stores! But honestly at the moment top on my wish list is a maid… I can just cook and play with the kids!

  34. Allison says:

    A bunk bed for my kids who have outgrown their toddler beds! But I could easily spend $200 at any of those places. FUN! FUN! FUN!

  35. brecca says:

    I would love a pot rack!

  43. mayme says:

    What’s topping my wish list right now is a suburban! Baby #6 is due any day now, and I’m not looking forward to taking 2 cars everywhere.

  44. Naomi says:

    Id have to say I totally agree with you not being able to shop at any of those stores unless I drive 4 hours or more to get to any of them. Wish I could take a cooking class at Williams Sonoma but that just isnt possible but I do have a few wants there!! I have been eyeing a juicer thinking it would be nice to use it to be healther and make soups with. Love any of those stores!!

  45. Joyce says:

    Easy to cook recipes!!! šŸ˜€

  46. Arlene O. says:

    A blender… which is crazy, because I have a food processor and a Kitchenaid, but somehow am lacking this most basic of appliances! I have never been to Williams-Sonoma before, so this would be an awsome reason for my first visit!

  47. Sara M says:

    I got a lot of things on my list for Christmas, but right now I’m realizing I could use a set of mixing spoons! Mine are going downhill!

  48. Cassie Bailey-Harig says:

    Top of my list is an immersion blender! I know they’re not that expensive, but I just haven’t gotten around to getting one yet. šŸ™‚

  49. Constance says:

    After reading all these comments, I can’t decide what I want. Maybe a new pair of boots, or a great pan!

  50. Nikki says:

    I have 2 things on the top of my list. Kitchen related: an immersion blender, which in my small NYC apartment seems like just another item to take up space but it would make soup making so much easier. Non Kitchen Related: new curtains for my bedroom…

  51. Stacy Stauffer says:

    Oh, I would love to own my first piece of Le Creuset cookwear! Williams Sonoma, please! What a great giveaway!

  55. Jami says:

    Oh Boy! I was just drooling over the crate & barrel magazine last night. I would love to have the hand immersion blender.

  64. Kristina says:

    Oh goodness! I suppose with all the homemade bread I have been making lately, I would love a Bosch mixer! I love my Kitchenaid, but that dough hook only works… Ah, a girl can dream, right?!

  65. Jessica Wilcox says:

    I want a rotesserie sooo badly! Thanks Mel!

  79. Saleta says:

    More than anything I want a new lens for my camera as I’m venturing into wedding photography. In the kitchen though, I’m still dreaming of getting Wusthof knives.

  80. VanessaS says:

    WISH list? …. I only have a “need” list LOL After 20yrs of marriage, 6 children ages 14-2 (5 of them boys)…the needs are endless. If I could replace anything it would be the dishwasher (and I don’t mean me :o) since I have to hand clean it every month as it’s so cheap!!

  81. Amy says:

    What a great giveaway! The #1 kitchen item on my wishlist right now is a bread machine. I would also love to have a good cast iron pan and a Le Creuset dutch oven.

  82. Yvette Bowman says:

    Stainless steele all clad frying pan!!!!

  83. Michelle M. says:

    Not kitchen related – a king-sized bed!

  84. Mandi says:

    I struggle with home decorating. I could really use a little bit of decor to cozy up my home.

  85. denise mcentee says:

    My husband and I sent to Puerto Rico (he had gone while in the National Guard) and he hooked me up with a wonderful drink called a Strawberry Frappe. I paid really close attention to the vendor while he was making it so I knew the ingredients. It was really really hard for me to find this recipe- as most googling with that name produced a different drink. I finally found it- simple and DELICIOUS. Try it in your blendtec- I bet it’s amazing! ( I probably add a bit more strawberry than this- but adjust as you go):

    1/2 cup strawberries
    1 cup ice
    1/2 cup water
    1 tbsp brown sugar (or maple syrup or regular sugar) **I use brown

    Mix in blender (the recipe actually says sprinkle the sugar on top- but the vendor mixed it in. maybe you can do a bit of both).

  86. Rick Schwartz says:

    I have been desiring a Nordic Ware Heritage Bundt Pan. The famous swirl pattern would be perfect to decorate for holidays.

  87. Tiffany Meyer-Bozydaj says:

    Oh man this is very hard to just pick since I’m in love with all the stories just like you!! As a newlywed we still need so much and I truly love to cook for my new hubby but I would have to go with Pottery Barn sheet’s since they are high in price. I would just love to crawl into them every night! LOL

  88. Trisha says:

    I am a failry recent new home owner and have TONS

  89. Trisha says:

    I am a fairly new home owner so I have a gazillion things on my wish list…..but a Breville Compact Juicer from Crate&Barrel would be awesome!!! My three sons would have a blast helping and making their own fruit juice concoctions!!!! MMMMM!!!

  90. Trisha says:

    ooops!! I feel silly!!! That give-away has been given away!!! Well? I love your website and will get my juicer some day!!!! Thanks for all the yummies!!!

  91. Brittany says:
