Christmas Giveaway Hop Announcement!

Hey guys! I hope you've all been having a great November. Today I'm back with an exciting announcement!  

To celebrate Christmas with all of you, I've decided to host a Christmas Giveaway Hop in December. And of course, my fellow blogger friends are all welcome to join it the fun ^^ 

If this sounds like something you might like to participate in, here's what you might want to know:

The little story behind this Christmas hop...

I've only started blogging in February, so this will be my first time celebrating Christmas with my blogger friends and readers. In a perfect world I would have loved to send gifts to all the new, amazing friends I've made this year on the blogsphere. Since that's a tad difficult though, I thought I would organize a giveaway instead.

Do you want to participate? Here's what you need to do.

Simply send me an email to tell me you want to participate, or add the link to your blog in the link up at the end of the post. You have till the 9th of December to confirm your participation. Check the top section of the right sidebar for my email.


Things to include in your Christmas Giveaway Hop blog post

  1. You need to include the cover picture I've put at the beginning of this post. 
  2. You must mention the host of the giveaway and include a link to their blog.
  3. Finally, at the end of your post, you must include a list of all the other bloggers participating in the giveaway hop with links to their blogs. You'll find all those links in the link up at the end of this post.  

How long will the giveaway last?

The Christmas Giveaway Hop event will last from the 10th till the 24th of December. I'll be announcing the winner of my giveaway on my blog during the following week. Every blogger to have participated in the event will announce the winner(s) of their giveaways on their blogs and contact them whenever they want during the following days. 

When should I post my giveaway?

The hop will last from the 10th till the 24th of December and you can start your giveaway at any point during that period, so long your giveaway ends on the 24th. I'll personally start mine on the 10th.


What should I give away ?

If you wish to participate you can choose basically anything you want to give away as a prize. If you have a book blog, it could be a book or any bookish goody like a bookmark or maybe even a bookish jewelry or accessory. Or, you could pick a Christmas themed item. Basically, you can give away anything you want ^^ 

I'll personally be giving away a book of the winner's choice through the Book Depository and you're totally free to copy that idea, hehe!

Should I make my giveaway international or not?

That's entirely up to you. I'll be making mine international but you're free to limit your giveaway to your region only.

And that's about it for this announcement. Please email me or add the link to your blog below if you wish to participate in the hop. Let's all have a great December guys ^^


  1. Oooh this is a wonderful idea Soudha - I might just participate...I need to figure out my Christmas budget but if it all adds up, I'll definitely get back to you before December 2nd :D I love that you decided to do this as a way to celebrate your first Christmas blogging ♥ The cover picture is super pretty and I love the Hello December one too :) xxxx

  2. Hi! That's a brilliant idea, l would love to join and find out how other people celebrate Christmas. Christmas is magical, you can feel the joy and the excitement in the air. I love decorating the Christmas tree, listening to carols and cooking yummy food. Oh, and waiting for Santa �� It's all about spending time with family and friends and feeling blessed.

    1. It'll be great to have you participating :) I agree with you, Christmas is most definitely a magical time of the year. It's my favorite time of the year, too. Everything about it is so fun and unlike some other holidays, this one does involve lots of family time :)
