Need Prize Ideas for January Giveaway

I plan on running a giveaway every couple of months. For the most part, they will be on a smaller scale than the November giveaway.

Each giveaway will be devoted to a particular category of challenges. You must participate in at least one of those types of challenges to enter, and the more challenges you complete, the more entries you will get. The prize will be an item related to that category, and between $5 and $20 in value…with the average around $12.

Challenges of that type will be applicable for the 3 months prior to the giveaway. For example, if I was to host a Book Giveaway next June: you would need to complete a book challenge that was posted between April 1st and June 30th, each additional book challenge you completed from the April to June challenges would earn you an extra entry, and the prize for the challenge would be one hardcover book, a paperback that is new and pricey, or 2 cheaper older books.

The next giveaway will be in January. I will be doing the categories in alphabetical order, so blog challenges are up first. Blog challenges posted in November, December and January will apply.

I am looking for ideas for a prize for the blog challenge giveaway. I need something cheap ($5 to $20) that somehow relates to blogging.

Posting ideas will get you an additional entry to the contest (contest won’t be posted til January, but I will check back here). If I choose your idea, I will give you 3 extra entries.

November Giveaway!
