As the holidays approach, we all start thinking about that favorite moment spent with friends and family, the meal you’re most looking forward to eating, the gifts you are most looking forward to giving (and let’s be honest, receiving), and the traditions that come along with all of it. This year, we want to be a part of your favorite family moment and would love a sneak peek via Flickr or YouTube. Show us how you celebrate the holidays with your family and friends — whether it’s a video of all the cooks in the kitchen, opening holiday gifts, or playing in the snow. And you could win a $1,000 gift giving shopping spree on Nautica.com for your efforts.

Last week, we asked you to pledge to lead a healthier life and help those in need, in exchange for a plush Nautica “Sleep In For The Cure” bathrobe. And the winner of the prize is bdubs629:
“In 2008 I got diagnosed with Celiac Disease where I have to eat gluten-free. Having this diagnosis take place while I was in high school was difficult, but the extra 20 pounds I gained for my senior year was horrible. Because I was finally absorbing nutrients from my food the weight was gained in about a month and a half. My ex broke up with me because I wasn’t “pretty anymore” and his friends claimed I was too fat for their group.
Now 2 years later I am in college and a totally different person. I pledge to finally start mentally healing my emotional scars! I want to exercise, not to lose weight, but get that connection with my body again! I want to stomp out the negative feelings about my body that other people have imposed on me years ago. I will be sexy! I will be healthy!”

Nautica is sponsoring the Susan G. Komen “Sleep In For The Cure” initiative to raise funds for breast cancer research. You see, not everyone is able to lace up their sneakers for Race For The Cure. Some people are too ill, are caring for a loved one, or simply have to work on race day. Instead, Susan G. Komen For The Cure and Nautica want participants to fight breast cancer from the comfort of their beds. That sounds like a workable plan for me. How about you? [Susan G. Komen for the Cure]
“WIN THIS! We’re giving away one plush Nautica Sleep In For The Cure bath robe, but you have to work if you want it. In the comments, tell us how you pledge to lead a healthier life and offer support to those in need by 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 9, 2010.

Last week, we asked you to reveal the worst gift you ever gave your dad for Father’s Day, in the hopes of winning a $100 Nautica gift card. I thought I’d given my dad some really horrible gifts, but you all had me LOLing at the ridiculousness of your gifts. But there can only be one winner … and the prize goes to mannequin for this comment:
“Oh geez … I went through an extended ‘phase’ of giving my dad candles for any gift-giving occasion. I knew darn well he didn’t want candles, but I liked to eat them, yep … I ate candles when I was little.
I couldn’t get away with giving them to my mom because she liked candles. Dad, however, would always make an excuse to graciously give me back the candle. At which point I would eat the candle.
Why did they let me eat candles?”
Read four honorable mentions after the jump. Keep reading »
You have a little more than a week until Father’s Day on June 20. And if you haven’t figured out what to get good ol’ dad, then Nautica is a good place to start.
