Holiday Gifts of Love Blog Hop!

I love the holiday season. I love the music, wrapping and giving gifts, and getting together with family so we can stuff our faces. I don't even mind the snow! (as long as I'm not the one shoveling it)

The whole gifting aspect of the holidays is where things sometimes get hairy. Sometimes our loved ones just don't get it right. (But of course we always act gracious and appreciate the effort!) I've been thinking for a while on what I wanted to offer on this blog hop, as I wanted to 1) be generous and 2) give away stuff people actually wanted while sticking to my rather limited budget. 

So you, my lovely hoppers, get the best of both worlds! One lucky winner will get e-copies of both Searching the Skies and The Edge of the Sphere (both of which I assure you are superior to inedible fruitcake and ill-fitting sweaters). In addition, the winner will also get $10 to spend at All Romance eBooks on books of his/her own choosing. Everyone will be happy!

Not enough presents for you? There are three grand prizes in this blog hop! Leave a comment with your email address, and you could win one of the following:

1st Grand Prize: A Kindle Fire or Nook Tablet
2nd Grand Prize: A $200 Amazon or B&N Gift Card
3rd Grand Prize: A Swag Pack that contains paperbacks, ebooks, 50+ bookmarks, cover flats, magnets, pens, coffee cozies, and more! (US only)

I wish you luck, and a wonderful holiday season!

  17. Hello, thanks for the giveaway!

  18. What an awesome hop!! And a fantastic giveaway! Thank you!! Im thankful for whatever i receive. I love it all! This one isnt romantic but it was very sweet and heartfelt. Although, a couple of weeks ago, my sister bought me a homemade blanket. She handmade it, stitched my name in. Its so pretty! Happy holidays to you all! Best wishes and many blessings!

  19. I got a ruby bracelet from my bf.


  20. My DH gives me romantic things all the time. They're almost never jewelry, but they're always something I've mentioned wanting or needing. He knows me very well (we've been married for 16 years now), and the fact that he listens and remembers is incredibly romantic to me.

  21. I'm spending this holiday season with my family and hoping to win so I can read more romances. I don't have an ereader. Happy Holidays! lisarayns at gmail dot com

  22. I don't do romantic gifts. I would rather it be something that I will use/enjoy all the time than something frivolous. I choose to have my romance all the time. ;)
