While I'm not a fan of launching Christmas too early, I am a fan of presents—giving AND receiving.

So, together with a few special generous partners, our four Atlanta magazines are giving away a gorgeous fresh fir tree, personal shopping and delish food, while benefiting The Giving Kitchen!

Lifestyle Publications Atlanta has partnered with Tradition TreesBotica Restaurant and Taste & Tenacity to offer a COVID-friendly Christmas, which includes fresh tree delivery, setup, takedown and recycle; Christmas dinner for four; and a personal shopper for two hours, who delivers the gifts to your home. A benefit for Giving Kitchen.

What began as a single mom-and-pop Christmas tree lot has grown to be Atlanta’s only full-service holiday staple. Tradition Co. strings your outdoor lights, delivers and sets up your tree, hangs a wreath on your door, puts a log in your fireplace and does it all in the spirit of Christmas.

“Christmas is first and foremost a season of giving,” says Matt Bowman, CEO of Tradition Co., “So we are honored to give a portion of our profits to Atlanta charities.” 

Since branding as Tradition Trees in 2006, Bowman’s company has donated more than $50,000 to local nonprofits, including the Atlanta Community Food Bank, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, Winship Cancer Institute and many others. Tradition takes donations from customers to cover the costs associated with delivering trees to worthy Atlanta families that can’t afford a Christmas tree.

And this year, Tradition Company is partnering with Lifestyle Publications to support Giving Kitchen. One lucky contributor to Giving Kitchen will win a COVID-friendly Christmas experience. A fresh tree, between 6-8 feet in height, will be delivered and set up by appointment between Nov. 21 and Dec. 21, 2020, and taken down by appointment between Dec. 26, 2020 and Jan. 12, 2021. Dinner delivered from Botica Restaurant (up to $400). Continuing the chill theme, Taste & Tenacity will provide two hours of holiday shopping for the winner (who is responsible for the cost of the purchases). Purchases will be delivered, unwrapped, to the winner’s home or office.
