Fantastic giveaway, thanks for remembering your inernational readers!

The gift(s) I'm most excited about giving is a keyboard each for my son and daughter. They both want to learn how to play piano but we don't have room for a full size one so this way they get an electronic one each.

The gift I'm most looking forward to recieving is the same thing I look forward to every year... From my kids I get a fluffy pair of slipper boots each christmas and I wear them every day until they fall apart in time for next Christmas :D

I love book thongs.

I think the gift I am looking forward to giving this year is the one I am giving to my rats. I bought them some new toys and they love tearing paper to get at their treats. lol

The one I am looking forward to getting I think are the gift cards to book stores.

The one gift I'm excited to receive? I've decided to take the leap and have requested an ereader for Christmas this year. I can't imagine ever giving up on physical books but I want to give all the indie authors out there a chance too and it's better on an ereader than on the PC screen!

I'm looking forward to giving my brother a copy of the most recent George R.R. Martin. He loves the series but hasn't been able to get hold of the fifth book yet so I'll be happy to get hold of it for him! :)

petoskystone said...

The gift I am excited about giving is a charm bracelet for my daughter from the Laughing Vixen Lounge Etsy shop. The one gift I am excited to get is still unknown...until I have opened them all :)

tweezle said...

I'm giving my husband a really nice cozy pair of slippers from LLBean. Something he'll love but would NEVER buy himself.

For me, hmmmm... I'd love a gift card to a bookstore. I mean - everyone needs more books, right? :)

Thanks for the chance for the book thong. I've never tried one and they sound wonderful!

BlackWolf said...

The gift(s) I'm most excited about giving are some books and toys for my son, and the gift for me.. books :p

thank you for this giveaway!!!

Joanna said...

Love Etsy's thongs... Thanks for the chance at winning one & have a lovely holiday season!

In answer to your question, I haven't even really thought about gifts for Christmas yet. I only had one idea in mind--that's for my Aunt. She adores Tim Tebow, so I was going get her his book. As for me, any book from my wishlist I would absolutely love. =)

H. Shar said...

I totally LOLed at the Book Thong. It's the first time I ever came across one. It's so cool! =)

I'm excited to give my sister her first 'proper' perfume bottle 'cos she's turning 16 near Christmas. It'll be like her first 'grown up' gift. I dunno what I'll be receiving for the holidays but a pair of Doc Marten boots would be nice. =P

Thanks for a great international giveaway!

Thank you for the giveaway and Happy Holidays!

Ellie said...

What a lovely idea for a giveaway! And thank you for opening to international readers too...

Hmmm, gifts. I think actually, although it's pretty boring, I'm most looking forward to giving my sister a wad of cash this Christmas! I've been saving specially, because she's moving on to her post-graduate law qualification next year and can't get a loan or anything to help her out. So I'll know this money is going to help her a tiny bit towards her future.

For me, my favourite gifts are always books! This year I'm hoping for a stack of Rick Riordan titles, and maybe one of the bigger non-fiction books or brand new hardback novels I don't usually buy for myself. As long as I can curl up with it this winter, with a mug of tea and some chocolate, I'm happy! :)

Reading mind said...

I can't wait to give my brother the whole collection of Harry Potter's movies. He'll love it!

As for me, books are always apprecciated!

Julie W said...

I made my son a really thick knit hat and scarf for snowboarding and I can't wait to give it to him! And I really want to get books and yarn for my gifts:)

Great giveaway. I love that kind of bookmarks. Please enter me. (^_^)

VanillaOrchids said...

Well, my nephew loves to read so I'm really wanting to get him some books that he's really excited about reading. And for me, well, I sort of already got my Christmas gift. My sister bought me a Kindle Fire a couple weeks back. :) And since technically, the adults in my family don't buy gifts for each other anymore, I wouldn't have gotten anything for Christmas anyway. So for me, the Kindle is my present. :)

Thanks for the giveaway!

What a wonderful gift idea! Thank you so much for offering this to international readers!

This year I will be giving my children each a journal with their own collection of pens and special pencils. I hope to inspire them to pick up more love for the written word and penmanship. they already love to read so this is the next step, right. ;-)

IdentitySeeker said...

Thanks so much for this great giveaway:) One gift I'm excited to give this holiday is.... my time! I spend so much of the year closeted in my room, at my computer slogging away on coursework, assignments and a thesis that I hardly interact with my friends and family. It's only now while I'm on holiday that I'm able to devote more time to them. Of course, the gift of relaxation that I've given myself also counts. The most exciting gift I received this holiday was my Kindle- it came as a surprise from my dad and I got it the day after I submitted my thesis and finished my postgrad year:)

Thanks for this great giveaway!

Sadly I still have not gotten any of my shopping done. Everyone I know is very hard to shop for. Although I am hopping to win a eReader for my mom. I wanted to get her one but they are too much money for me to get.
