Hey guys! I’m super excited about today’s post because I have something fun to share with you.
If you follow me on Twitter, you may have seen my #12DaysofTravelGifts tweet yesterday. I announced that I would be tweeting out my FAVORITE travel gifts every day for the first 12 days of December. What I didn’t announce was that I will also be doing a giveaway!
I came up with this 12 Days of Travel Gifts idea back when I made my huge Travel Gift Guide, but being the procrastinator that I am, I didn’t actually put any of it together until…yesterday.
But I decided I really wanted to follow through with this idea for two reasons:
- The holiday season is an exciting time, but it’s also a very busy time. I won’t be able to blog much this month, so I wanted to find a way to make up for it.
- Christmas is a time for giving! So obviously I wanted to do a giveaway to show appreciation to all of my followers and readers.
I’m going to keep this short, because I know you guys just want to hear more about the giveaway. So here we gooo. Read below to find out how this #12DaysofTravelGifts works and how you can enter to win my giveaway.
Let’s start by talking about the prize, because I know that’s what you’re all wondering. Since I truly love all of the items in my Travel Gift Guide, of course I want to gift some of the items as the giveaway prize. But there are SO many cool items, and I know everyone has different preferences and tastes, so I’m going to give the winner a choice.
That’s right, if you win this giveaway, you will get to choose your prize. I have created 3 different prize packages, all worth about $50 USD. The winner will be able to choose one of these prize packages to receive.
Prize Package #1
Prize Package #2
- Wild Sam City Guide (city of your choosing)
- True South Puzzle (puzzle of your choosing)
- Best American Travel Writing 2017
Prize Package #3
As you can see, some packages give you further options to customize your prize. Details will be sorted between the winner and I before shipping.
I also want to note that this giveaway is NOT sponsored or affiliated with any other entity. It is run solely by me, winner will be chosen by me, the prize will be fulfilled by me, and any costs of this giveaway will be covered by me.
What: My #12DaysofTravelGifts Giveaway will be housed over on Twitter, so if you’re not following me already, go ahead and do that now (@TravelDazeco). I will be tweeting daily about one of my favorite travel gifts from my Travel Gift Guide. Every tweet will contain the #12DaysofTravelGifts hashtag, the Day (i.e. Day 1, Day 2, etc), and a link to the gift or gift guide.
How to Enter: To enter the giveaway, all you have to do is retweet one of my #12DaysofTravelGifts tweets. Any of my tweets that contain the hashtag are eligible as an entry. Every tweet that you retweet will count as one entry, giving you the opportunity to enter multiple times. (For example, you could retweet all of my 12 daily tweets and be entered 12 times) PLEASE do not create your own tweets with the hashtag. Anyone who does will be disqualified from the competition.
When: The giveaway begins on Thursday, November 30, 2017, and runs through December 14, 2017.
How Winner Will be Chosen: I will go through all of my #12DaysofTravelGifts tweets and each retweet will be given a number. I will then use a random number generator to choose a number. I will find which retweet that number correlates to, and whoever that retweet belongs to will be the winner.
Details: By December 12, there should be a total of 14 tweets (including the 2 tweets I use to announce the giveaway + the 12 daily tweets) on my account with the hashtag #12DaysofTravelGifts. You can retweet any or all of these tweets during the competition. Quote retweets will not count as an entry. There will be ONE (1) winner. You MUST be following @TravelDazeco on Twitter to win. If your account looks to be a spam account or an account used solely to enter giveaways, you will be disqualified. The winner will be contacted by December 20, 2017, and will be announced publicly as soon as they are confirmed. This giveaway is only open to those residing in the USA, Canada, UK, Australia, and New Zealand (for shipping & tax purposes). Some prize packages will be shipped in multiple packages.
I hope you guys are as excited as I am about this giveaway! So start entering, follow along on Twitter, and good luck!
