A Holiday {Giveaway} with Apolis…(now closed)

Apolis Holiday Giveaway

Apolis Holiday Giveaway

Lately I've been into the idea of surprise boxes and getting something from a store or brand you love, but not knowing exactly what you'll get. In celebration of the holidays and surprising someone you care about, I've partnered with the guys at Apolis to giveaway a mystery gift box ($200 retail value) to three readers that Apolis and I will be releasing on Cyber Monday, December 1st. On the same day, I'll share my inspiration behind the mystery gift boxes during a 24-hour Apolis Instagram takeover. The package will contain a handful of one-size-fits-all items which may include some of my favorites shown above. All which make for great gifts for Him, Her, or to keep for yourself!

To enter, simply visit the Apolis website and then leave a comment here telling me your favorite item from their shop. Entries must be posted before Black Friday, November 28th, at 8 a.m. PST, and three winners will be chosen at random*

UPDATE: Congrats to Vivien J. from Dallas, TX, Kaitlyn M from Novi, MI and Lisa A. from Berlin, Germany for being our winners this time!

P.S. Apolis is offering a special 20% off discount site-wide for Oh Joy readers for the holidays. Enter code "OHJOY20" at checkout through November 30th, 2014.

*Hooray! Open to ALL readers anywhere in the world. Please do not leave your email or web address in the body of the comment, only in the allotted boxes. $200 USD approximate total value. Winners will be contacted by email once comments close, and announced at the bottom of this post soon after. 


  1. First I thought it was the Indigo cotton pullover, but then I saw the Transit Issue bomber jacket. Can I just layer them please?

  2. My husband has been needing a new rain jacket, and I think the Transit Issue Nomad Parka would be just perfect!

  3. I love the Washed Linen Scarf in indigo and I think I am gonna have to order it for my step-brother for Christmas. What a nice giveaway, too!

  4. I’m lusting after that cyprus fig travel candle. I also love so many of their bags like the wine tote and the courier bags.

  5. The fatigue boots in cognac would be a fabulous gift for my husband, who loves shoes more than I do!

  6. The Alpaca Tassel Blanket looks lovely. I also love the market totes and the Heritage Leather + Apolis Mason Courier Bag. Thank you for the chance to win!

  7. I love this their bads! specially the one with so many pockets! so practical ๐Ÿ˜€

  8. Maybe it’s because I have traveling on my mind but I’m torn between the Heritage Leather + Apolis Mason Courier Bag (in either Army or Navy!) and the Alpaca Travel Kit!

  9. The Apolis + Kinfolk Garden Bag is my must have! With a baby on the way, it’s the perfect all-use solution.

  10. I just love the market bags! They seem like such good gifts, especially since I have friends and family all over the world who would find it handy!
    Thanks for the opportunity,

  11. What a beautiful website! I love the Heritage Leather + Apolis Mason Courier Bag for my husband! I hope I win!

  12. Normally I have a hard time picking just one, but did you see that Fatigue Boot?? OMG.
    I also love the striped tote in any of the colors. They are so awesome!

  13. Oh-oh… nice stuff! Wouldn’t mind if that Crimson Alpaca Beanie was thrown into the surprise bag. Love the color!

  14. Really love the idea of a travel candle โšก๏ธ
    The Transit Issue candle looks perfect for the holiday/traveling season.

  15. Argh, so much to choose from! All of the candles are appealing to me, as are the linen scarves.

  16. GORGEOUS products! I’d love to smell the cypress fig travel candle. Everything on this site is so classy and elegant! I hope I win!

  17. My husband fell in love with this shop when we were at their retail store so I would get him one of their shirts.

  18. I can see my pup named beard fitting swell inside the market back while I travel in the winter to my mother’s for lunch. Also, those travel candles โ€”ย love love love love love โ€”ย those are for me, not beard ๐Ÿ™‚ Sohail

  19. Lots of great things… The Indigo Stripe Chore Jacket would be perfect for my husband! But I love the Apolis + Kinfolk Market Bag for myself.

  20. Thank you, what a great giveaway! I’m loving the Striped Simple Totes and Mason Courier Bags!

  21. I love their market bags, I have one of the gardening bags that I have used as a diaper bag. LOVE their stuff!

  22. the bags are the best part! the Heritage Leather + Apolis Mason Courier Bag, and even the scribe wine tote- both with wonderful leather details.

  23. So I thought I would be drooling over their clothes, but then I saw the Apolis + Scribe Wine Tote and hands down it wins as my favorite. Such a great collection by them!

  24. Great stuff, and I think I went to highschool with the founders (not that they’d remember me)! My favorite (for myself) is the Heritage Leather + Apolis Mason Courier Bag in white, but I’d love to gift my bf the Officer shoes in cognac!

  25. I can already tell you my favorite item without visiting the site…but I did anyway to ogle over my dream item. I have fantasies about hitting up the farmers market toting around APOLIS’ Market Bag. Seriously, I often think how much joy it would bring me to carry local veggies in that canvas and leather strapped bag.
    So…make a girls wish come true and pick me! Where’s a genie lamp when you need one.

  26. I love the Heritage Leather + Apolis Mason Courier Bag – would be such a great tote for a weekend getaway!

  27. They have some awesome products! My favorite is the Heritage Leather + Apolis Mason Courier Bag in navy!

  28. I adore the Hoofpick belt in Camel! I have a sister who just finished her equestrian studies who would love it!!!

  29. I swear by Apolis’s organic tee shirts, but I’ve also been lusting after the Apolis Mason Courier Bag in navy for months now.
    What a great giveaway idea!

  30. The Alpaca Shawl Cardigan in Army is so beautiful. I would love to see my husband in that. So handsome!

  31. I love both the red and blue polka dot pocket squares! They are just what I’m looking for to stuff my husbands stocking!

  32. Oh wow! the Co-op Alpaca Travel Pant looks so comfy cozy! That’s my absolute fave ๐Ÿ™‚

  33. Love the Archive Jacket in Army. Too bad it’s sold out Hubby would love it. Though I’m sure he wouldn’t mind it in navy too!

  34. The Scarf in natural and navy. I am also totally in love the Mason Courier bag for my hospital bag (baby #2 due jan.)

  35. I love the market bag as well! Waiting eagerly for the “Atlanta” edition. I’m told it should be available before the end of the year.

  36. The fatigue boots aren’t one-size-fits-all, but holy moly they are gorgeous. I love the wine tote too, with those long straps.

  37. As a frequent at the vineyards, I can’t choose between the washed linen scarf in olive and the Apolis + Scribe Wine Tote in natural! I think they go well together-hehe. Thank you for the great giveaway!

  38. Favorite item? Impossible to pick just one! Wool cargo pant, charcoal wool chore jacket, natural market bag, washed linen red scarf. Thanks for introducing me to this brand!

  39. I was excited to see you working with this brand after reading up on Apolis from their featured Simple Global Citizen tote in the Conscious Commerce set from Birchbox! Their quality is very impressive.
    The Apolis + Kinfolk Garden Bag, Natural is my favorite item. With those pockets it’s perfect for picnics and travel!

  40. Love, love, LOVE the Mason Courier bag (in Navy) and the Alpaca Tassel Blanket. Andddddddd, YAY for international give aways!!

  41. My favorite item is the Wine Tote because it looks so much sturdier than my usual totes that wear out too fast. The Mason Courier Bag in white is a very close second however!

    And I want to add I really appreciate that for once, the giveaway is open to international readers. Thanks!

    I would get the Alpaca Shawl Collar Cardigan for my husband. He looks so handsome in sweaters!

  49. Those linen scarves are spot on! I love how casual and classic they are; I haven’t seen anything like them. I live in Maine so scarves are a must all winter long and I’m always looking for ones that are especially classy. These really fit the bill.

  50. The Transit Issue Bomber Jacket and the Nomad Parka! They even can be worn together! Thank you for the chance to win!

  55. I love the courier bags, and the shawl collar cardigans! But mostly, I love their “advocacy through industry” value that drives their business.

  58. I have had their market bags on my wishlist for the longest time! Rustic chic and a beautiful classic!

  59. I adore the Market Bag. I know that everyone is saying that, but it’s a very special bag (really striking and also obviously thoroughly functional!).

  74. Love love love!!! the Indigo Wool Quilted Vest for my love of 35 years. the texture is yummy!

  75. It’s a tough call because I love Apolis so much. It’s between the tan Reportage Camera Strap and the Heritage Leather + Apolis Mason Courier.

  82. I would personally love the tan Transit Issue Camera Strap, and my partner would look rad in the Navy Transit Issue Bomber Jacket!

  83. Oh Joy, it has got to be the Organic Hand Dyed Pocket Square naturally overdyed with Madder (persimmon). It’s my favourite shade of pink~

  84. So many lovely things! My favourite has to be the Alpaca tassel blanket in heather…it looks so cosy!

  85. Those crew neck sweaters look like the perfect staple sweatshirt. Double like as I can share it with the Mister ๐Ÿ™‚

  86. The market Bags, Linen bandanas, and tasseled blanket are all fantastic, I wonder If an XS Indigo Camo button up would still be big on me . . .

    Thank you Oh Joy for introducing us to Apolis!

  97. Hi! I love the nomad parka. A jacket you can wear anywhere! Looks like the perfect length. Happy thanksgiving to your family!

  98. I loved the Alpaca Travel Kit and especially learning the behind-the-scene steps in their video…the alpaca are such adorable creatures that I was able to meet in person in Peru some months ago! The quality of their wool is fantastic and no harm is done to the animal to collect it.
