Welcome Winter Giveaway Hop

 

Is it cold where you are?  Some nights here are.  Mostly just foggy though, which makes me feel colder than it really is.

For this giveaway I have quite the box gift of goodies.  Due to the shipping this giveaway is US only (Sorry to all my INT friends, but I do have other giveaways you can enter going on if you look at the top of the right column!)

What you can win in this box:
1) An extra soft fleece throw blanket w/foot pocket to keep the feet extra cozy! (may choose from red, blue, lavender or black)
2) A homemade scarf in the color(s) of your choice
3) A box of hot apple cider mix or hot tea (maybe both)
4)"Winter" scented candle from Bath and Body
5) 6 New released titles or ARCs that have been released this general winter season (this will be surprise titles but I will say 3 are YA and 3 are more adult)


One lucky winner gets ALL this and maybe a little extra.  Winner will be notified the first week of Febuary.  Prize will be sent approximately one week after that (so I can make the scarf)
All prize goodies are from me.

  21. Hi! I'm not participating in the giveaway (not US resident :/) but I've been thinking about this and maybe you like the idea...

    Why don't you allow international followers to participate ON THE CONDITION that they pay for the shipping charges.

    Because you always have amazing prizes, like this one, and I find it worth it to pay for receiving it.. Say you give the 72 hours to claim the prize and arrange the shipment payment and if they can't afford it you choose another winner.

    I think it's worth a try.. Just an idea.
    Have a nice day!
