5 Ways to Spend a $100 Bravern Gift Card

Shopping has always been one of my favorite past times and it’s even more fun when I’m shopping with someone else’s money. That’s why you’re crazy if you don’t take two seconds to fill out a quick survey from The Bravern for a chance to win a $100 gift card. There are a million ways you can spend the gift card but here are my top 5 recommendations.

# 1- A leopard Marc by Marc Jacobs cosmetics case ($48) and a Stainless Steel & Gabanna Ring ($55) from Nieman Marcus.

# 2- A beautiful borough necklace ($88) and a pair of Buttercup earrings ($18) from Anthropologie.

#3- A pair of Paul Frank sunglasses from Eye Society ($104).

# 4- A Soft Serve Ice Cream maker from Sur La Table. It makes 1 ½ quarts of soft serve ice cream, yogurt, or sorbet in 20 minutes flat ($99).

# 5- A Clayton Zip Coin Purse from Tory Burch ($95).

You might consider skipping the shopping altogether and pampering yourself at the Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa instead. For $100 you can get a 50 minute cream and sugar scrub. 

Time is running out. The deadline to enter the survey is Monday!
