A Poll: August Favorite Things Giveaway – How Should it Work?

Disclosure: If you make a purchase through the links posted below, I may receive a small compensation. Read the full disclosure.

Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.
I’m tossing around the idea of having multiple winners for the August favorite things giveaway and wanted to get your thoughts on it. Since I started doing them (gosh, all the way back in January / February), its’ been winner takes all. Which is great and all – if you are the winner! But I am thinking of mixing things up a little for August and including say, 10 prizes and having 10 winners. Thought son this? Should we do it this way or stick with the way it’s been done in the past?

It doesn’t make too much difference to me, other than instead of having to ship one package, I’d have to ship multiple ones, but I can deal with that.  What do you think?  Any is there anything you’d love to see included?  Maybe something from a past giveaway you wished you would have won?

Spread the love

    I like the idea of ‘one winner, one prize’ so that the love and happiness can be spread around! This is also coming from someone who has never won so maybe a past winner would have a different opinion. I’d love to see some headphones included.

    Well, if my name is picked first, then I’d want all ten items to go to one person. But if I’m not the name picked then I would go with ten individual winners. So I guess it just depends 🙂

    you are pretty spot on with choosing awesome items! i love looking forward to seeing what you are going to pick 🙂

    Ray Bans!

      @Suzanne: I second this 🙂

    Depending on what you’re giving away, maybe you could have some prize “bundles” and some standalone prizes? You could group smaller prizes together (two to four small prizes) and then give away more substantial ones separately. That way there would be more winners but each prize would still feel “complete.” (Also, less shipping!)

    I loved the zuku slush/shake maker! I’d love to see that one again.

    I also loved the farmers market tote from jcrew! i was dying to win it!

  8. Judy

    I would have loved the iPad mini or Rayban Aviators from the last giveaway! 🙂

  9. Mindi

    You’re great! How about a clarisonic in the giveaway?

  10. Esmeralda

    I think its worth a try to split it up at least more than just to one person so more fans get a chance?

  11. Shana

    Think that is a great idea. Give more people a chance to win!

    Also, a suggestion for something to include in a future giveaway: the MicrodermaMitt. It’s kind of on the spendy side but I bought it with my Birchbox points and it’s AMAZING. A lot of people wouldn’t be able to justify the purchase but it works better than any of the zillion scrubs I’ve tried.

    I like the idea of bundles so more people can win. I mean, yes, the winner takes all hauls are exciting, but it’s nice to spread the love, you know?

    i say, do it how you want to do it… cant make everyone happy no matter what you do.
    prizes…. your pretty good at picking those already, but you know i am on a fancy strike so personally, you could just feed my withdrawl from fancy and i would be good to go.

    I say whatever is easiest for you! I think all of your giveaways are awesome (including the one I won!) and it’s generous of you to do them at all, plus it’s a lot of fun to enter and I’ve gotten a friend to start reading your blog based on a conversation about the giveaways and raffles. I’m looking forward to seeing what you end up going with!

    I agree with Mrs. L… lol… if my name is picked first, I’d want only one winner!

  17. Janice

    You said you didn’t know what to do with the Rocked Headphone by Urban Beatz from the Coco Fancy box…I have an idea! 😉

    I think it’d be fun to shake it up! Maybe do a few months of one item per person, and then switch to some hybrid, like 4 winners, 3 with 3 items each and the 4th with a “grand prize” like an iPad mini or Clarisonic. Once you get bored again you can go back to one giant giveaway for a single winner!

    I love to see an item from the Stella & Dot “Companions” like a pouf (so sad the elephant one is sold out but the others are cute too!). And of course a big-ticket item like an iPad mini would be amazing.
