Win! Two Cognac Glasses from Bodie & Fou


On the 7th day of Christmas, Domestic Sluttery gave to me a pair of Cognac glasses from Bodie & Fou!

I don't drink Cognac very often, but I've recently started getting into it and I need some nice glasses to sip from whilst I'm snuggling under a blanket. It's too cold for going out. Might even pop on a Christmassy film and share, if you ask nicely.

Of course, I'm not allowed to enter our competitions. So I can't win these amazing Cognac glasses from Bodie & Fou (that would be big fat cheating) but you can! You'll get a pair, and they're actually perfect for the favourite boy in your life as well. We can't have only girly presents this year, apparently we have to share with boys.

What do you have to do to win? Leave us a comment below telling us what your favourite Christmas song is! Are you Dreaming of a White Christmas? Rocking around the Christmas tree? All about Frosty the Snowman? Tell us in the comments before 8pm tonight and we'll pick a winner at random tomorrow!

Good luck everyone!

The small print (yawn): The competition will close at 8pm December 9th. You must be UK based. Prize is for two Cognac glasses and delivery is arranged by Bodie & Fou. You must also leave a name as well to make sure we know who you are! If you're anon, your entry won't count and if you enter more than once, we'll discount all of your entries (yes, we do check). We're not allowed to enter our own competitions, but Siany is a big fan of Mariah's All I Want For Christmas. It's the harmonies. We wish we could enter our competitions. Humph.

  1. A Spaceman Came Travelling! Feel the power and passion of DeBurgh. HI-larious!

  2. A Fairytale of New York - I know it's not the most Christmassy song, but I love it! x

  3. Hello lovely ladies!

    What perfect timing, I'm trying to help a friend find her Christmas karaoke song, but so far my suggestions of James Brown's 'Santa Claus go straight to the Ghetto' or anything from Dolly Parton and Kenny Rodgers's Christmas album have been turned down!

    However, I do think that the perfect Christmas song is Santa Baby by Ertha Kitt, sexy, Christmasy, and it drops a lot of non-to subtle hints about presents from Tiffany's!

    Keep warm, save some of that cognac for me!

  4. Baby it's Cold Outside- is my all time favourite Christmas song- it's a classic, it's romantic, and these cognac glasses would be perfect for sipping some Christmas tipple while listening to Dean Martin crooning away...

    ReplyDelete
  5. I hate to admit it but I'ma sucker for Mariah Carey's 'All I want for Christmas is You!'a guilt pleasure!

    ReplyDelete
  6. Pogues & Kirsty McColl fairytale of new york is brilliant but I also love the original Band Aid do they know it's christmas!!

    ReplyDelete
  7. Fairy Tale of New York is definitely the all-time favourite. But anything from the Muppet's Christmas Carol is always a winner, too...

    ReplyDelete
  8. "All I want for Christmas is you!" from the Love Actually soundtrack
    My hubby and I usually sing it to each other while we're decorating the house, while our son looks at us as is we've gone mad :-D!

    ReplyDelete
  9. The Puppini Sisters version of 'Jingle Bells'.. Brilliant!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Elton John - Step into Christmas. I have a Christmas memory from 20 years or so ago walking around toys r us at the age of 10 singing this. I always thought it was written for my mum. I thought it said 'Merry Christmas Barbara' instead of 'Merry Christmas One and all'. I only realised the truth a couple if years ago after a particularly embarrassing incident with friends!!

    ReplyDelete
  11. I love Santa Claus Is Coming To Town, reminds me of being a wee kid on Christmas Eve!x

    ReplyDelete
  12. My favorite is A Fairytale of New York, it's not christmas until I've heard it!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Has to be Driving Home For Christmas!! Brilliant song, love the piano. Perfect to sip Cognac to.....

    ReplyDelete
  14. not sure I really want to admit to this, but it's "I saw Mummy kissing Santa Claus" (I'll get my coat)
    @msmollylouise

    ReplyDelete
  15. I absolutely adore Glasvegas' version of A Snowflake Fell (And It Felt Like a Kiss). I've been listening to it on repeat ever since it started snowing last month!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Mine is Greg Lake - I believe in Father Christmas. Quite depressing, but I generally get prone to a bit of melancholy round this time of year and it sums it up nicely for me! I absolutely love the song. Also, In Dulce Jublio. Those glasses are amazing! x

    ReplyDelete
  17. Favourite used to be 'Fairytale...' but the soft wee nostalgic in me has come around to the charms of 'Little Drummer Boy' by Bing and Bowie. Especially when you know the story behind it and consider Bowie's public persona at the time. Bing always reminds me of my Grandad. Barum-pa-pom-pom.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Are boys allowed to enter too? :)

    My favourite song is definitely "Let It Snow" because it reminds me of the ultimate Christmas movie, Die Hard. That's really not very girly, is it.

    ReplyDelete
  19. For a slowie I love Belleau Wood by Garth Brooks (probably a little known Christmas song!) but for dancing drunkenly at a Christmas party it has to be "I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day". Is there anyone in the world who doesn't know all the words to that?! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  20. Either:

    Driving home for Christmas as it's the only Balearic Christmas song

    or

    Like Xmas by Vybz Kartel as it's the only Christmas song you can dutty wine to

    ReplyDelete
  21. Mele Kalikimaka, sung by Bing Crosby is a secret favourite. Always makes me think that one year, I'll spend Christmas in the sun.
    xx

    ReplyDelete
  22. favorite is definitely frosty the snowman!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I'm loving the whole Glee x-mas album at the moment and The Grinch song the most.

  24. With a competition like this how could I choose anything other than 'The Twelve Days of Christmas'? For me it brings back memories of primary school and the words that everyone knows..."FIIIVE GOOOOLD RIIIINGGS"!

    Great prize ladies, I've had my eye on these glasses for ages and my better half would love them (he has a penchant for glasses!)

  25. Merry Christmas Everybody, it always cheers me up to hear it

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love 'Santa, Baby', preferably sung by Eartha Kitt. So wrong on so many levels, but it's great fun to sing along to as I potter round the kitchen. 'Won't you trim my Christmas tree/ With some decorations bought at ... Tiffany/ I really do believe in you/ Let's see if you believe in me.'

    ReplyDelete
  27. Stay - East 17. Cheesy, naff and I love it!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Oh these are lovely! My fave xmas song has to be the pogues fairytale of New York, cliche but it's a great one!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I have to say that it isn't Christmas in my world until I hear the Salvation army playing Away in a Manger!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Probably Fairytale of New York. Being an Irish girl, I do love the Pogues in all their guises. It's an amazing song to sing along to in bars. And they always turn it down at the "you scumbag, you maggot" line so you just hear everyone shouting the next line.

    On a slightly more obscure note, I also really like steampunk band Abney Park's version id Winter Wonderland =)

    Clare from Belfast x

  31. Its a marshmallow world in the winter! I absolutely adore that song and it always, always, always puts a smile on my face :-)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Fairytale of New York, one of the few Christmas songs I can hear over and over again without it driving me crazy ;)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Fairytale of New York, I always sing along (very badly), even when I am out in public and get weird looks in the shops

    ReplyDelete
  34. I hate to say it, but it's 'All I want for Christmas' by Mariah Carey. It reminds me how when you're away from loved ones at this time of year, no matter how good the pressies are, all you really want is to be surrounded by the ones you love. That's the real meaning of Christmas for me :)

    Lauretta from London

    ReplyDelete
  35. I've always loved the chocolate hug that is Bing Crosby singing White Christmas.... however for pure comedy value this year it has to be Wynne Evans as Gio Compario singing Santa Claus is Coming to Town - he's raising money for the Teenage Cancer Trust - google the video!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Have given a lot of thought to this over the years, and am pleased to announce my top three, in this order...

    1. Mariah, All I Want For Christmas Is You
    2. Slade, Merry Christmas Everybody
    3. Shakin Stevens, Merry Christmas Everyone

    Yay, pass the mince pies :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Although I do love Mariah- All I want for Christmas, I prefer a good carol to make me feel all cosy instead; We Three Kings or Little Town of Bethlehem.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I love Silent Night--reminds us about the true meaning of christmas...we forget about this and cant wait to see my son as a shepherd in his school play next week...

    ReplyDelete
  39. One that always heralds the Christmas Season for me is Snoopy's Christmas. I think it is quite an antipodean thing though and I've never heard it in the UK!

    ReplyDelete
  40. It would have to be Fairtytale in New York! Perfect for a good sing-a-long!x

    ReplyDelete
  41. Has to be Mariah Carey's All I want for Xmas (as much as the other half doesn't approve)!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Fairy Tale of New York by The Pogues!! You have to sing along to it really loudly!!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Stevie Wonder and "That's What Christmas Means To Me" - a smasher! x

    ReplyDelete
  44. I like the traditional songs (the pop songs we hear for two months solidly in the run up to Christmas make me want to blow up every available loudspeaker). So for me it's Silent Night.

    ReplyDelete
  45. One of these days I will win a Domestic Sluttery giveaway, I am sure of it!

    My favourite song is The Spaceman one by Chris de Burgh, especially that bit where it goes 'na,na,na,na,na,na,na-naaaaa'...reminds me of being little.

    Oh no, I've changed my mind already, its actually the Stop the Cavalry song by Jona Lewie. My Dad used to play it when we were little and we'd jump along all the sofas pretending to play the trumpet.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Hmmm, if I get a little tipsy sipping cognac out of those gorgeous glasses during the festive period there is no doubt I'll start belting out Slade's 'Merry Xmas Everybody' from under my slanket!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Jona Lewie - Stop the Cavalry has always been me fave. :)

    ReplyDelete
  48. So many, but last year discovered - Brand New Christmas by Hot Chocolate

    ReplyDelete
  49. Always loved Silent Night, it reminds me of when I was little.

    ReplyDelete
  50. twelve days of christmas of course!!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Ah they are LOVELY! Perfect for putting-up-the-decorations-drinks...my favourite would have to be Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree, sung as I dance (badly) around the tree, trying not to crash into it and knock everything over...

    ReplyDelete
  52. I love Santa Claus is coming to Town. So many incarnations but they always seem to work, from the bopping round the tree version to the all sing together in an Elf style version, and not forgetting the Sinatra version too. Just lovely.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Jon Lewie - Stop the Cavalry, every time! :D
    I don't suppose it's technically a christmas song, but it makes me feel Christmassy whenever I hear it :)

    Sophie

    ReplyDelete
  54. Bing Crosby, White Christmas!! Sooooo good for a sing-a-long, loud as you like, usually when no one else is around to hear :)

    ReplyDelete
  55. We Three Kings of Orient Are, One in a Taxi, One in a Car....Lovely :)

    ReplyDelete
  56. Jona Lewie - Stop The Cavalry. Brass band and twinkly bells, lovely :)

    ReplyDelete
  57. Got to be David Bowie and Bing Crosby - Little Drummer Boy. The acting at the start of the video is classic!

    ReplyDelete
  58. I Believe In Father Christmas! Because i wish i was still a child and could 100% believ in him still. Plus they said they'll be snow this Christmas, They said they'll be peace on earth. Well we have had the snow, so bring on the Peace! x

    ReplyDelete
  59. I love Fairytale of New York - such a great song!!!

    ReplyDelete
  60. I love all the great classic christmas songs but the one that get's stuck in my head every year is Proper Crimbo and Here comes Santa Claus.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Chris Rea - 'Driving home for Christmas', it's the ultimate stuck in traffic tune & you know everyone else in the jam is thinking the same as you... 'warm cosy home waiting, twinkling with fairy lights, nice glass of wine.... MOVE DAMN YOU!!!!'

    ReplyDelete
  62. Never Be alone at Christmas ... I'm ten again, watching Home Alone and wishing my parents would forget me so I could have as much fun and McCauly Kulkin - minus the burglars though!

    ReplyDelete
  63. It has to be "O Holy Night" - a traditional carol, but it makes me feel Christmassy as I sing it at Church with my bestest friends and sums up for me what Christmas is all about!

    ReplyDelete
  64. The whole of the Low Christmas album, of course!

    ReplyDelete
  65. "You're A Mean One, Mr. Grinch"
    Written by Dr. Seuss and Albert Hague
    Performed by Jim Carrey and Busta Rhymes

    ReplyDelete
  66. Fairytale of New York - just love the mix of boozy sing-a-along lyrics and Christmas sentiment

    ReplyDelete
  67. I love all Christmas songs lol but my fave is definitely The Pogues, Fairy tale of New York...and of course 'It's Christmaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaas!!'
    Merry Xmas, Gemxx

    ReplyDelete
  68. Silent Night. An oldy, but a goody. There's nothing more Christmassy than standing in a cold church, surrounded by candles, and letting the sound of Silent Night wash over you. Gives me goosebumps every time!

    ReplyDelete
  69. My all time fav is the power of love by frankie goes to Hollywood - a beautiful song and video that reminds of the Christmas spirit.

    Adele hammond (@marshmalotoast on twitter)

    ReplyDelete
  70. Fairytale of New York, but if we're talking traditional carols, it has to be Silent Night.

    @happyfox

    ReplyDelete
  71. Oh the weather outside is frightful! But the fire is so delightful, since theres no place to go, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

    Could not be more accurate right now. Its been snowing all the time in Bristol so I have spent a great deal of time under a blanket in front of the fire with a nice boy to keep me warm! Theres just one thing missing...

    ReplyDelete
  72. I love Driving Home for Christmas, when I lived away from my family it always used to give me a bit of a thrill to hear at Christmas knowing that I would be soon home with my loved ones.

    ReplyDelete
  73. The Christmas Alphabet! It makes you imagine the christmas days of yore, and makes you feel warm and happy inside. It's wonderful!

    C is for the candy trimmed around the Christmas tree...

    Could someone please arrange for somebody to help me out with M (is for the mistletoe where everyone is kissed)? :)

    Caroline (@wouldilietoyou)

    ReplyDelete
  74. Spice Girls - Two Become One!

    OK, not Christmassy in itself. But it was Christmas number one back when I was a teen, and I have a vivid memory of watching the vid on the Christmas Day TOTP special whilst peeling carrots for Christmas dinner!

    ReplyDelete
  75. I know it's terrible, and feel free to judge me (oh you'll want to!), but I've been rather enjoying Dickie Valentine's 'Alphabet Christmas'. C is for the candy trimmed around the christmas tree, H is for the happiness with all the family...

    ReplyDelete
  76. The Power of Love by Frankie Goes to Hollywood. Doesn't seem like a Christmas song, yet it always appears on Christmas albums..and it did have a Nativity-themed video!

    ReplyDelete
  77. Fairytale of New York :)

    ReplyDelete
  78. I'm dreaming of a White Christmas, may be cheesy but its perfect for Christmas and you hear it soooooooooo much in the shops when buying your pressys, puts you in the mood

    ReplyDelete
  79. Mine's got to be "Christmas Wrapping" by the Waitresses - not too cheesy, but still christmassy

    ReplyDelete
  80. Rockin Robin, Jackson 5. NEVER fails to get me in the festive mood!

    ReplyDelete
  81. Christmas Blues - any of the versions of the Rat Pack. Nostalgic, beautiful and just a little bit blue.

    ReplyDelete
  82. It has to be White Christmas by Bing Crosby.
    It puts me in a warm, cosy, snuggled up by the fire roasting hazelnuts, christmassy mood in an instant. X

    ReplyDelete
  83. I have to agree with Siany. All I Want for Christmas will be on repeat throughout the festive period! Love it!

    ReplyDelete
  84. Well I was going to say All I want for Christmas is you by Mariah (Of course!) But it's a bit popular, so i'll go with my second favourite
    Little Donkey!!! (preferrably sung by a group of adorable 5 year olds at a school concert accompanied by wooden musical instruments)

    ReplyDelete
  85. Was all snuggled up with my fella listening to Frankie Goes to Hollywood - The power of love last night with a glass of port. Lush! xx

    ReplyDelete
  86. Merry Xmas Everybody by Slade - It makes me so happy and a tad emotional (I'm usually singing it while I'm roaring drunk of course...)

    ReplyDelete
  87. Christmas Wrapping. Of course.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Makes me feel grubby typing this, but it has to be another vote for Mariah 'All I want...'.

    ReplyDelete
  89. Well, obviously Mariah's magnum opus All I Want for Christmas Is You! It reminds me of my great friend Jess who's emigrated to Singapore - she's back for a holiday in six days so I'd clink a cognac with her before she heads back over the pond.

    ReplyDelete
  90. "Baby Its Cold Outside". If Deano were singing that to me I'd be going nowhere!

    ReplyDelete
  91. Christmas Wrapping by The Waitresses - catchy.
    That or Oh Come, Oh Come, Emmanuel. x

    ReplyDelete
  92. Its a contest between Wizzard and Slade. Because 70s is where Christmas is AT. I wish it could be Christmas everyday.... well here it is! Merry Christmas!

    Emily

    ReplyDelete
  93. fairtytale of new york... not very jolly but what a tune!

    ReplyDelete
  94. "...And the boys of the NYPD blue are singing Galway Bay, As the bells are ringing out for Christmas Day..." Dah-da-da-da-da, Dah da-da-da-da-da...

    Love it! Me, and The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl dancing around the kitchen of a Christmas morning - one hand stuffed up a turkey, the other clutching a large 'medicinal' brandy - what's not to like? ^_~

    ReplyDelete
  95. another fan of Santa Baby here. I'll pass on the sable but I'm all for light blue convertibles, anything from tiffanys and a yatch. Now there is a woman who knows what she wants.

    ReplyDelete
  96. I love Walking in a Winter Wonderland.

    ReplyDelete
  97. I am entering this on behalf of my husband, so his favourite is 'a spaceman came travelling'

    ReplyDelete
  98. Santa Claus is coming to town - the Dave Brubeck version. Because it's cool and jazzy and my son Finn has sung along to it since he was five years old.

    ReplyDelete
  99. Bit of Kenny Rogers. Always.

    ReplyDelete
  100. All I want for Christmas is you. My best friends and I text each other each time we hear it. Of the trad carols, the oh come let us adore him on - i like attempting the soprano and feeling v light headed afterwards...although that could be the mulled wine.

    ReplyDelete
  101. Bing Crosby's White Christmas still takes some beating.

    ReplyDelete
  102. My favourite xmas song is a brand new carol that i heard my little twins singing at their Nativity Play, called "Bumpy Road." Its always more special from the mouths of babes :) xx

    ReplyDelete
  103. Step into Christmas by Elton John! Cos it reminds me of school christmas parties :D

    ReplyDelete
  104. Driving home for Christmas

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  106. Another vote for Fairytale of New York- lovely!

    ReplyDelete
  107. Mine has got to be mariah careys all I want for Xmas is you. ***sings this song to the picture of the pair of Cognac glasses*** lol. Xx

    @misssarahjay

    ReplyDelete
  108. Fairy tale in New York,easy..the magic of christmas along with the realism of squabbles and tetchiness and tipsy emotion x

    ReplyDelete
  109. It used to be "Fairytale of New York" until a few years ago when I had flu and for some reason it became the soundtrack to my feverish dreams! I think now it's "Santa Baby" as it's so much fun to listen to and to sing!

    ReplyDelete
  110. I'm not ashamed to admit I love Brett Domino's - Christmas (This Year). I especially enjoy the video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HeEo9a8rbYk :)

    ReplyDelete
  111. Yup, has to be Fairy Tale of New York.

    ReplyDelete
  113. Frank Sinatra - The Christmas song - sounds like later, someone's gonna get whacked!

    ReplyDelete
  114. A new one but ‘Time of the Season’ by Isobel Campbell and Mark Lanegan-haunting and strangely romantic

    ReplyDelete
  115. Has to be The Pogue's Fairytale of New York.

    ReplyDelete
  116. Has to be Last Christmas by Wham....I was suffering from my first broken heart and it matched my mood perfectly. When I hear it now I relive the angst I suffered and count my blessing for finding the man of my dreams. I am so lucky to be with the best husband a girl could ever wish for!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  123. White Christmas

    ReplyDelete
  124. So many festive songs... but ultimately I am a sucker for the carols we sung in school. I think Away in a Manger is possibly my favourite - and I look forward to teaching it to my children so we can sing it in parts! (optimistic I know) ;-)

    ReplyDelete
