Christmas Gift Giveaway #24 - WIN a Festive Doormat

Tis the season to be jolly and whether your home has a tree and decorations up already or not, this doormat has a lovely festive feel and is ideal for muddy, wintry wellies!





British company Turtle Mat, have a lovely range of products and this one in particular is new for autumn 2015. It absorbs 95% of moisture and is machine washable so it can be cleaned with ease to come out year after year. It would go beautifully teamed with a red or blue wreath on your front door too.

Featuring 12 robins it welcomes you and your family home each day and it really helps to get you in the spirit of Christmas. As well as being attractive in appearance it is functional and perfect for popping your footwear on to keep your carpets cleaner, for longer. Nobody wants to drag the leaves and snow into the house from outdoors after all.








It is easy to roll up for storage and the grips on the base help to keep it in place on tiles and wooden flooring. I've popped mine outside as we have a porch area to protect it from the elements but it is aimed for indoor use. It is approximately 20" by 30" in size so it can certainly fit several pairs of boots on to dry. 

You can find out more information or purchase your own on the website https://www.turtlemat.co.uk




For your chance to a festive doormat you can enter via the Gleam entry form below.

The giveaway ends at 11.59pm GMT on 12th December 2015. 

Leaving a comment is mandatory but there are additional entry methods available also.


Good luck!
