Merry Christmas to You: a Giveaway!

Merry Christmas to you!  
And Happy Hanukkah, too!  
While I know the 12 Travel Books of Christmas have you very excited, I have even more holiday treats to give away!  Sitting on my desk this very minute are three Rome with A View Calendars just waiting to be won.  Filled with the gorgeous photography of Susan Sanders, these 2009 calendars feature the Rome we all love -- iconic, dramatic, and rich.  The photos here are a few examples of what you'll find in the calendar.

But that's not all...

I am also throwing in a Passports with Purpose raffle ticket with each calendar, too!

How To Enter (do it now)
I will be giving the Rome Calendar + PwP packages away to three lucky readers. For a chance to win, leave a comment before 11:59PM PST on Monday December 22,  2008, with two pieces of information:

I've always wanted to go to Italy - maybe when my kids are older. (I have a 2 1/2 year old and three month old twins). The best gift I'm giving this year is digital photo frame, loaded up with pictures of my kids for their grandparents. So many great prizes in the raffle, it's hard to pick just one...I think I'd like the Flip video camera. Small enough to carry in my purse so I never miss a moment.

adrienne said...

Great giveaway - will try to send visitors your way. My best gift is the same as Sarah's - a digital frame loaded with pictures of the kids, to my Dad who was just moved to a nursing home. I really couldn't decide among the prizes, so my pick would have to be the American Express gift card.

The best gift I'm giving this year...hmmmm...must be the pile of cookbooks I got for my dad. He loves cookbooks.

Me--I'd want the Amazon gift card.

And thanks for including my book in your 12 days!

What a nice little contest, Angela!

My creative gift this year continues a tradition that I began with my wife over 20 years ago when we first started dating. I've written her a "Once Upon a Time" story that I will read to her on Christmas Eve. The story tracks our "past lives" and how we fell in love in each of them. This will be the 22nd story and I'm as excited to write this one as I was the first one!

For a raffle prize, I'm interested in D012: Night in a Fairmont Hotel.

My email is

Thanks again for the fun little contest, and Happy Holidays!

Casey said...

For the gift question- the inlaws and my parents are getting beautiful framed professional photos of the children. I won a gift certificate a few months ago or else I would have never been able to afford it!

For the raffle, I'd love to win K05, they have so much great stuff there that would come in soooo handy with my little ones!!

Thank you for the chance!!

Vanessa said...

This year of Christmas giving has been my most creative. I have made several totes for my sisters and niece. I hope they like them!

I think the Flip Video Camera would be my choice.

Sarah Shah said...

Hi!Thanks for the fantastic contest! The most creative gift? I'm making a tiny book for my husband to keep with him when he travels...the cover reads "I love you because...." and on each page is a silly, goofy, sweet thing about him that I love (I love you because learned all of elvis' moves just for me). Just a little something to keep us close when we're apart.

For the prize - (would love A journey into Michaelangelo's rome) Spain: A Culinary Road Trip by Mario Batali w/Gwyneth Paltrow

Happy Holidays! - Sarah

I'd love to win this calendar! I'm going to Rome for the first time in March!

What I'd most like to win..."Grab Bag of fun travel-related gifts including the Funkey Finder, hair products from Tassi, a Carson Lens Pen, luggage tags from and an Eastport Natural Collection Duffle Bag."

My most creative gift this year are things I've made, such as quote books filled with my favorite quotes and quotes that I think the recipients would like.

I'd love to win B15, the collection of Putumayo CDs. I have several and they are wonderful.

Beeb said...

This year, I am making gift baskets full of homemade goodies. I'm going to make my own hot chocolate & coffee mixes, and package it in cute little bags. Then I'm going to make cookies, mince pies, loaves of bread, and maybe some homemade truffles or popcorn balls, depending on what mood I'm in. :)

The raffle has some awesome prizes! It was a hard choice, but I think the (GB09) $100 gift card from American Express, courtesy, would be a wonderful prize!

Thanks so much for this great giveaway! I would love to win this calendar as a present for a friend who went to Rome earlier this year.

I am giving my wife a cruise to the Caribbean. I would like to win the Cooking class and dinner for 4 in NYC.

Jennine said...

I don't know the best gift I am giving this year. It seems like the digital picture frames are popular this year. I am giving one of those with pictures of the family to my grandparents. For the raffle prizes I think I would have to say the one I would most want to win is the flip camera as well. One of my coworkers just got one and they are super neat and convenient!

kerry dexter said...

most creative gift: what turned out to be a rather abstract looking shot of the hands of a musician playing a bodhran. giving other photographs and baked goods too.

my raffle choice would be the one hunderd dollar Amex gift card.

artmarcia said...

A handmade quilt for my upcoming grandbaby is my most creative gift.

I would love to win the 3 Nights at the Wyland Waikiki in Hawaii ($400+) Wow!
