Merci Chocolates Awards Show Giveaway

Merci Giveaway

The folks at Merci Chocolates recently contacted me again to see if I would be interested in hosting another giveaway! This time around, the purveyors of delicious chocolate want to know who you’d give a meaningful thank you to if you were up on stage receiving an award!

It’s time to roll out the red carpets, because award season has arrived! One of the highlights of these annual star-studded evenings is listening to the emotional and meaningful thank you speeches.

But as you watch their grand thank you speeches, it’s important to remember that giving someone a meaningful thank you isn’t just a once a year gesture. Giving a meaningful thank you is a heartfelt way to show those important to you that you truly appreciate them every day.

So as the stars share their thank yous, think of who you’d share a meaningful thank you with if you were on stage and consider saying thank you to someone in your life with a box of Merci chocolates.

Who would you give a meaningful awards-style thank you to? Mine, of course, would be to my husband and daughters!
