Princess Perfume by Vera Wang [giveaway]

Last summer I gave away a bottle of Vera Wang Princess and it had such a great turnout that I'm doing it again.

This fragrance is marketed to young women but there are many reviews that say it's great for all ages. And by the variety of folks who entered the previous giveaway, age doesn't matter for this perfume.


Vera Wang's Princess opens with notes of water lily and mandarin meringue. Mid notes of pink guava and Tahitian flower. Base notes of pink frosting and chiffon vanilla.

There are several factors which can affect the natural smell of your skin and the way a scent smells on you. Similarly, factors such as dry or oily skin can even affect how long the perfume's fragrance will last.

I've got a 3.4-ounce bottle of Princess by Vera Wang up for grabs for one lucky Giveaway Guy reader. Open worldwide.

Little Beehive Farm honey [giveaway]

I've been making plenty of hot tea lately, and I almost always have raw honey on hand. It has health benefits and adds some sweetness to the tea.

One of my favorite honey producers in Massachusetts is Little Beehive Farm. I never buy honey from grocery stores and always support local farmers. I've seen the folks from the farm at several markets over the years. Help save the bees!

100% natural honey

Depending on the time of year and when the honey is harvested, the color, smell, and taste can vary. It's pretty cool to get different flavors. This is based on what plants are blooming when the bees are doing their thing.

In this case, the honey is a golden color, fragrant, and light in flavor.

To help get some exposure for Little Beehive Farm, I'm giving away a one pound jar of light honey to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader worldwide. You must subscribe to my blog in order to be eligible.

I also have a bunch of other giveaways going on, so check 'em out if you haven't already! They're also listed on the right side of my blog.

Yule Log Centerpiece for tea light candles [giveaway]

Last month I gave away a few candles and now I've got a nice pairing for you.

I've previously featured Earth Sea and Sky Candles, an Etsy shop run by Lynn. She's a CPA accountant by day and a candle maker by night. As most of us do, she needs a creative release and started making candles a few years ago.

Lynn loved the way her home smelled every time she made and burned candles, and the different fragrances were fun to give to friends and family. She truly enjoys the experience of making candles and has opened her Etsy shop to support the addiction.

Feast your eyes and sense of smell on her products!

Yule log made of red cedar

Most candles are still being made in Lynn's kitchen. It reminds me of making candles in my apartment with my then fiance (and now wife) with pots and jars of wax everywhere. If you love something you'll do it anywhere.

Lynn's husband gave her a space in his workshop to pour and store her creations, and the transition into the new space has begun.

Pictured above and below is the Yule Log Centerpiece, made for tea light candles as you can see. Doesn't it look awesome? In person it looks even more rustic. I have it in the kitchen and it adds a nice touch to the emptiness we usually have.

Measures approximately 8" x 3.5" x 2"

This beautiful wooden centerpiece was hand cut from Lynn's Texas acreage and designed in the woodworking shop. Made from beautiful red cedar and coated in a light lacquer, the color is rich and the piece will be preserved for years to come.

With each log centerpiece you also get three white tea light candles in the fragrance of your choice. There are lots to choose from, and one that I find amusing but haven't tried yet is Monkey Farts. It has notes of banana, strawberry, kiwi, grapefruit, and vanilla. Despite farts in the name, the scent is supposed to be wonderful in soaps and candles.


Who wants a centerpiece of their own?! Earth Sea and Sky Candles is graciously offering a centerpiece candle holder to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story [giveaway]

You're not human if you haven't seen any movies from the original trilogy (IV, V, VI)! We won't talk about the three prequels (I, II, III).

This time last year, Star Wars: The Force Awakens hit theaters and was released on DVD just a few months later. If you don't own the DVD, stick around.


As if you weren't aware, there's another Star Wars movie coming out tomorrow. Rogue One opens December 16th and I plan to see it with family the week of Christmas. I expect the movie will do pretty well at the box office.

There have been a couple trailers for Rogue One and here's one of the recent ones. Prepare for goosebumps.


Rogue One: A Star Wars Story takes place in a time of conflict (as Star Wars often does), and a group of unlikely heroes band together to steal the plans to the Death Star. As most of us know, the Death Star is the Empire's ultimate weapon, and it looks like Darth Vader will make an appearance.

In celebration of the most beloved fantasy series, up for grabs for one lucky Giveaway Guy reader is Star Wars: The Force Awakens on DVD.

I currently have a bunch of other giveaways going on, so check 'em out! They're also listed on the right side of my blog.

KAST Fitness leggings & capris [giveaway]

Attention, ladies or anyone shopping for ladies - KAST Fitness Wear specializes in lightweight leggings and capris with lots of colors and patterns.

Summer Peters (if you're reading this, Aloha!) and Amber Withycombe have teamed up to share their love of health and fitness with others.

While Summer was shopping in Brazil she discovered a boutique full of fun, colorful fitness wear. Falling in love with the feel, stretch, durability, and colors, she decided to bring the Brazilian flare to the USA.

Jennifer in tiger shadow leggings and my huge boots.

I discovered KAST thanks to coming across a giveaway on another blog, and I was able to get in touch with Summer. I knew my wife would love to try the leggings.

I don't know about you, but fitness wear inspires and motivates me. I'm not wearing KAST's apparel because it's not for men, but I can see they embrace comfort and style. The colors and patterns will get you through your workout or have you stylin'.

My wife loves the Tiger Shadow leggings, which is extra light supplex (minimal compression) and can feel like another layer of skin. Jennifer suggests not wearing these in cold temps since they aren't thick. Instead, they're great for mild temps and Fall running.

Henry the puppy doesn't sit still.

The leggings have various levels of compression, and not all patterns have the same compression, so keep that in mind!
  • Extra Light Supplex (Feels Like a Second Skin) - Very Minimal Compression
  • Light Supplex (Light on Skin) - Minimal-Light Compression
  • Power Supplex (Thicker/Snugger) - Light-Medium Compression
  • Oasis Supplex - (Thicker/Snugger) - Medium Compression. UV 50+

The way KAST selects their fabric is with quality and comfort as top priority. The fabrics are soft, comfortable, and obviously form fitting as you can see. If you're a guy like me, you're gonna love the way your girlfriend/wife looks. Trust me.

If you're browsing the site you don't see the desired print and/or size you need, you can contact KAST. They'll put you on the list so you'll have the first pair when the next shipment is in. Cool, huh? That's pretty good customer service.

If you're in Canada, check out the KAST Canada website. You'll notice the inventory is slightly different. And if you're reading this and happen to be in Australia, they have a site for you too.

A few KAST capri patterns.

So ladies, who wants some pants?! The folks at KAST have been gracious enough to offer either a pair of leggings or capris in the pattern of your choice ($70 value) to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.

Purely Alpaca outdoor adventure socks [giveaway]

Miss out on the alpaca winter hat I gave away just recently? I've been on an alpaca kick with the cold weather here, so I'm back with Purely Alpaca and socks!

If this is the first you're learning about Purely Alpaca, soon after starting their farm they opened a small store showcasing alpaca products to visitors. The first web store opened in 2002, and the demand for more products continued to grow. Today they've got a huge collection! It's almost overwhelming.

Gray outdoor alpaca socks

Since the beginning, Purely Alpaca has offered new features, more customer services, and a wider collection of quality alpaca products, including some awesome socks. Look no further for "wearable art" made with luxurious, naturally unique alpaca fiber.

The new Outdoor Adventure alpaca socks feature less bulk so they'll fit in regular shoes easily, so don't worry about having to find big, roomy boots or something.

The socks have an active design of reinforced heel and toes. They've also got a unique knit with shock absorbing cushion and a gentle long calf fit which comfortably holds without restriction.

Did you know there are more than 20 natural shades of their fiber? It's soft like cashmere and stronger than wool. Soft and strong is not very common. It's unique in that it's extremely light, yet retains the ability to keep you warm.

Black outdoor alpaca socks

Designed to last, these thermal alpaca socks are made from alpaca wool, so they're soft and comfortable (not a surprise). And unlike most other heavy socks, these are machine washable. Toss 'em right in the wash.

The Outdoor Adventure alpaca socks are the best for keeping your feet warm! They're ready for action and obviously great for the outdoors, thus the name. I can't wait to go snowmobiling this winter. But if you're more of an indoorsy person, the socks are just fine for that too. Kick your feet up and be warm.

At the moment there are three colors available for these socks, and I think any of them would be a good gift. I've got the brown ones (not pictured).

So who wants to keep their feet warm?! PurelyAlpaca has been gracious enough to offer a pair of "Outdoor Adventure" alpaca socks to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader, your choice of size and color.

Winter clothing from North Star Alpacas [giveaway]

The wind was blowing around today and it hurt my face. Why do I live where the air hurts my face? Anyhow, it's cold and I need warm clothing.

I have a new friend in my wife's home state of Michigan, Maple of North Star Alpacas. She gets up in the morning, gets to the barn, and takes care of her 20 alpacas and two horses. I envy that life...

Maple loves working with her fleeces. She washes, dyes, picks, cards, and spins the gorgeous fleece that the alpacas grow. That's a lot of work! Some of the fleece is sent to Zeilinger's mill in Frankenmuth, Michigan to be made into roving. The mill also spins her sock yarn, which is then sent to Minnesota to be knit into socks.

And we're going to be giving away some socks again!

Alpaca socks, and a horse on the farm!

My wife really likes her new slouch hat (or beanie, beret, whatever you like to call it), which you can find a variety of in the shop. I see this style of hat every so often and I think it's becoming more popular.

Maple herself knit this slouch hat with farm grown alpaca yarn. My wife loves the way this soft, drapey, slouchy hat feels on her head. It's got just the right snugness to stay on your head with lots of room for hair. Jennifer has a lot of thick hair and the hat fits just fine. Hopefully she's not offended if she reads this.

Slouch hat. Promise I'm not married to a mannequin.

Did you know there are more than 20 natural shades of their fiber? It's soft like cashmere and stronger than wool. Soft and strong is not very common. It's unique in that it's extremely light, yet retains the ability to keep you (and the alpacas) very warm.

Maple's alpaca socks are 60% alpaca fleece, 20% Corriedale sheep fleece, and 20% nylon.
  • The 60% alpaca in these socks is from the farm's alpacas.
  • The 20% wool is from a friend's Corriedale sheep.
  • The 20% nylon is added to the yarn so that the socks will wash nicely and hold shape.


Check out the shop for hats, scarves, insoles, and other items. There are more than 2,400 positive reviews so you can expect quality stuff.

Who wants a pair of socks for the winter?! Maple at North Star Alpacas has been gracious enough to offer a pair of crew-style alpaca socks to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.

Snowflake greeting cards from Second House Studio [giveaway]

Sent any holiday cards this month yet? It doesn't cost much to send one and there's still time to find cool designs...

You may or may not have seen my Second House Studio feature a couple months ago during the heart of Fall. Now that the holidays are coming, I'm featuring the studio again and it doesn't matter what holiday you celebrate.

Kerrin of Second House usually has an awesome collection of greeting cards and these snowflake cards are brand new. I might be the first one to see them even as they're not in the shop yet.


Commonly referred to as the House of Possessions, Second House Studio's possessions enhance our lives and those of others, and foster a general sense of well-being.

While this speaks to that which we own, it's not limited simply to tangible things. We own our feelings and emotions, as well as our inner selves, abilities, needs, and wants. We should own things that speak to us as individuals.

We don't have any snow here in MA yet, but I get the feeling it's coming soon. Now's the perfect time to send someone one a snowflake card.


These babies are special and striking, and great for December no matter what holiday you celebrate. Matching brown envelopes are included.

My wife says these handmade cards are just beautiful. You get a sense of luxury with the quality. What's more, the cards are blank inside so you can write whatever you like and make the message yours.

So who wants to win some cards?! Kerrin and I have partnered together to offer up a set of three (3) snowflake greeting cards AND a $10 Amazon gift card to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.

$20 PayPal cash & new Spartan Race stuff [giveaway]

I'm back with some fresh Spartan Race news and a giveaway! Yeah, it's winter, but we can still plan for races in the spring.

Spartan Race has races all over the U.S, and it doesn't matter if you're in a rural area or an urban area. They make it happen. If you're nearby one of 'em, consider signing up. There are also races inside of MLB ball parks, which give you the chance to run throughout the park and even on the field.

There are a ton of new races for 2017 and there are season passes for unlimited race entries too. You can race as many times as you want.

Here's what you get with the Open Season Pass, which is ideal for the non-elite folks like myself:
  • Unlimited Racing during the Calendar Year (2017)
  • Free Spectator Pass
  • Free Bag Check
  • Guaranteed Entry to all events (not guaranteed heat)
  • Multi-Lap Discount
  • Valid on all Continental US & Hawaii Events
  • Valid for OPEN Heats ONLY

In addition to your sprints and beasts and supers, there are four Spartan Endurance races - Hurricane Heat, Hurricane Heat 12 hour, Ultra Beast, and the Agoge (pronounced uh-GOH-ghee).

The Agoge is the final level of a long ascent of endurance events. It follows the Ultra Beast, the Hurricane Heat, and the Hurricane Heat 12-Hour. These bad boys are on the the other end of the spectrum in comparison to the standard sprints. The endurance races require a strong mind and aren't for the weak!

There are also brand new medals for 2017. Check out this video for the reveal:


Do yourself a favor - put on your big boy pants or your big girl pants and sign up for a race. I'm the first to admit I don't have a tough mindset, but I feel #unstoppable after finishing a Spartan.

Sleep well over the holidays with Mediflow's gel foam pillow [giveaway]

I can't wait to get some long, quality sleep over holiday vacation in a few weeks. Our neck and heads deserve support and comfort. After all, we spend a third of our life in bed...

I love working with Mediflow and sleeping on their pillows, and now we're back with another pillow to give away!

I've had the pleasure of trying the gel foam waterbase pillow, which is clinically shown to improve the quality of your sleep. Mediflow helps you sleep unlike any other pillow on the market. And it has.


Water in a pillow? That's an unusual thing. The Mediflow pillow is cool gel infused and ventilated to allow air to circulate completely through the foam cushion and away from the head for extra comfort.

The bottom foam layer is made of firm foam springs that provide proper support for a neutral spine position. If you need a pillow for neck pain, the pillow has been clinically shown to reduce tossing and turning.


You can easily add water to the bladder and adjust the support level to get the comfort level that's right for you. It's pretty cool, and does not have the sloshing effect that a waterbed does thankfully. Whether you prefer soft, medium, or firm comfort, you can customize it to your liking.

Other features:
  • Cool gel foam top layer
  • Ventilated to stay cool all night long
  • Special foam spring center to maintain support
  • Adjustable water base provides adjustability to any level of support

Now through December 17th, Mediflow is doing a “Give a gift, get a gift” deal on the site. All orders over $100 will receive a $20 gift code bonus that can be used on future orders. It's $20 for free! FYI, after placing an order, the code for your $20 gift code bonus will be emailed to you.

So who wants a pillow?! The folks at Mediflow have been gracious enough to offer up a gel foam waterbase pillow ($60 value) to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.

Christmas is coming! A Kore Essentials belt is great for the guys [giveaway]

At a loss for what to get the man in your life with Christmas coming?

You can't go wrong with a belt from Kore Essentials. Kore calls it a must-have gift, and I think it's a great idea. Forget sweaters and socks - give the best fitting, most comfortable belt.


Pictured above is the gun belt in black, and I think it's pretty slick. If you like to dress in dark colors, the gun belt is a good accessory.

I also own the Evolve belt in brown. My old belt got so worn out, mostly in the holes, that it became raggedy and a bit of a sore sight. Kore's belts, however, don't have holes so there's no chance of wear and making holes bigger!

Kore Essentials brown leather belt

Behold the belt of the future! Kore's trakline belts use a sleek, spring-loaded caliber mechanism in the stainless buckle. This way, it offers a comfortable fit that snugs to your exact waist size since there aren't any holes.


Did you just have a big dinner? Loosen that buckle up. The release tab under the buckle allows you to easily make adjustments. A hidden track is on the backside of the belt, and there are markings showing up to size 44.

There are some cool buckles in the shop, so check it out and browse around. You can go casual or dressy with the entire collection of belts. All products have a one-year warranty.

So who wants a trakline belt?! The folks at Kore Essentials are graciously offering your choice of either a Gun belt or Express belt to one Giveaway Guy reader.

SoundWhiz Turbo wireless headphones [giveaway]

Sometimes you just don't know what you're gonna get with headphones. Will they sound good? Will they fit right?

Well SoundWhiz is offering quality headphones at a good value.

Awhile back, Sue Prentice and Giles Smith were both hunting for innovative ideas to bring zest to the lives of others. Ideas to inspire healthy, fun living. Realizing they shared the same vision, the two entrepreneurs merged their enthusiasm and energy as partners. And having spoken with Sue, I can tell she's a go-getter.

SoundWhiz soon became a sensation, with thousands enjoying wireless sound and unleashed workouts. Maybe you've seen their wireless headphones on someone at the gym or running around the neighborhood. They're more popular than you think...


I have the Turbo wireless headphones, giving me the flexibility and freedom to work out anywhere (wireless), in any weather (waterproof), with great sound.

SoundWhiz insists on the ultimate finish, a softness that words can’t describe for a sports earbud. It feels good on my ears and it's pretty lightweight too. I like the over-the-ear hook design for the added security that the buds stay in my ear.


It won’t be long before you won't be able to resist the urge to start moving thanks to these headphones. I'm really impressed with the sound quality, although I'm not an audiophile despite my love for music and perfection.

The bass is really solid too, which is crucial to my taste. Some buds give you that "tinny" sound with little to no bass, but the Turbos are well balanced. In my opinion you're getting a great value for the price you pay.

The Turbos also lets you make phone calls although I haven't tried that yet. Based on some reviews I've read from those who have made calls, an ideal setting is a quiet room. If there's a lot of background noise it might be tough for the person on the other end of the line to hear you.

As for compatibility, these work with just about any Bluetooth device - Android, iPhone, smart phone, PC, Mac. Consider buying a pair as a gift for the holidays!


So who wants some headphones?! The folks at SoundWhiz have been gracious enough to offer up a pair of Turbo wireless headphones ($65 value) to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.

Perilla luxury alpaca socks [giveaway]

I've got wood floors at my house so I need good socks. Ever consider buying alpaca socks? Alpacas, not to be confused with llamas, are native to South America. And their fiber is soft and strong.

Shop Perilla for great socks!

Located in the UK, Perilla is home to a range of the finest quality socks made with alpaca fiber. Alpaca socks are the ultimate treat for feet. The business was born after looking for luxurious bed socks for the owner's daughter and not finding anything suitable.

After a chance meeting with an alpaca breeder with an interest in producing knitwear, Sandra (owner) was steered in the direction of the alpaca socks you'll find on the Perilla website.

Sandra started the business in 2006 using only British-produced alpaca but couldn't get enough high grade fiber that was needed. She now imports lots of alpaca yarn from Peru. Congrats on 10+ years of business!


And we're going to be giving away some socks!

My wife has the alpaca walking socks in purple, pictured above, and she loves them. Every time she wears 'em she says how comfortable they are. If you're looking for the perfect walking sock, look no further.

These walking socks are warm, thick, made from 75% luxury alpaca, and perfect for winter. Did you know alpaca fiber repels odor and bacteria? This helps the socks live longer.

There are more than 20 natural shades of alpaca fiber, believe it or not. It's soft like cashmere and stronger than wool. Soft and strong is not very common. It's unique in that it's extremely light, yet retains the ability to keep you (and the alpacas) very warm.

My first experience meeting alpacas in July.

All of Perilla's alpaca socks, with the exception of bed socks, are made of 75% pure alpaca and 25% nylon, which gives the socks their shape.

The fiber has a low prickle factor and can be worn by those who normally cannot tolerate wool on their skin. Alpaca naturally repels bacteria and odor, so you can wear your socks for a week without washing them if you want.


Check out the collection for socks, hats, sweaters, and lots of other items. The sock collection in particular is pretty impressive.

So who wants a pair of socks?! The folks at Perilla have been gracious enough to offer a pair of alpaca socks (your choice) to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.

Honey-infused chocolate from Harbor Sweets

I'm a sucker for all things honey and dessert, and naturally I've discovered a local business that combines the two.

Located in Salem, Massachusetts, Harbor Sweets produces handcrafted artisan chocolates from its original historic red brick building at 85 Leavitt Street, and you're welcome to go visit.

I haven't been there, but I used to live in the next town over, and there's lots of cool stuff to do in Salem. You can't go wrong if you like hanging out by the ocean.

Gather: small batch honey-infused chocolates

Gather Chocolate is a mission-driven chocolate inspired by the plight of the honeybees. A portion of sales (2.5%) is donated to the Pollinator Partnership, an organization that educates and advocates best beekeeping practices for the protection of bees.

Like a flight of wine, one box of Gather contains six (6) pieces of honey-infused chocolate, all covered in dark chocolate:
  • Caramelized Honey
  • Pomegranate Molasses
  • Sour Cherry
  • Sesame Crunch
  • Coconut Cluster
  • Cashew Caramel

70% cacao dark chocolate and notes of wildflower honey

Harbor Sweets and Gather Chocolate are sold at high-end gourmet grocers and gift shops, by phone (800-243-2115), and of course on their website. They ship worldwide too.

Check out this short Harbor Sweets video to help the bees, the chocolate business, and be part of the solution.


Now, for the moment you've been drooling for.

Who wants some chocolate?! The folks at Harbor Sweets have been gracious enough to offer up a 6-piece box of Gather Chocolate one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.

One Fur All pet house candles

Do you have a pet? You probably treat it like a member of the family, just like I do. And as pet parents we want our homes to smell and feel clean.

This is where One Fur All comes in. Founders David and Robert have developed a line of freshening products for pet parents like myself. Their goal was to create products that are effective, safe, and decorative to proudly display in our homes and cars.

After a year and a half of research and testing in homes with pets, One Fur All was born. All products, such as candles, are made with only the best ingredients and are hand crafted here in the U.S. to create a fresh environment for ourselves and our pets.


Pictured above is the Evergreen Forest candle, part of the winter fragrance collection. Give this baby a light and you'll be walking in the woods among coniferous pines, crushed leaves, redwoods, and sweet balsam. Our house smells like a log cabin, which is exactly what we like. No kitty or puppy odors.

The candle is made with a powerful odor neutralizer for effective masking of pet smells and has a long-lasting burn time of 70 hours, which is a super long time. Burning for just an hour or two a day will make the jar last forever.

Made with 100% natural soy wax, it contains NO paraffin or petroleum by-products. And get this, when the candle is completely burned you can use the jar to store treats! We haven't got there yet, but will have to save the jar when we're done.


There are a few other fragrances in the winter collection (candy cane, gingerbread, holidays), and these candles would be great as holiday gifts for friends who also have pets. I'd be pretty happy if someone gifted me a One Fur All candle. Actually, even if you don't have a pet it's still a nice gift.

So who wants to freshen their home?! One Fur All is graciously offering an Evergreen Forest candle to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.

Golden Goddess is back with more Massachusetts honey!

The past few days I've been rocking the heavy flannel shirt and drinking hot tea. And you know what I like in my tea? Raw honey for some sweetness. Do you have any in your kitchen?

Golden Goddess Honey and Samantha Parsons are committed to providing artisanal honey combined with key herbs and spices for a unique, delicious product.

All honey is harvested from good ol' Western Massachusetts where it's combined with the finest quality herbs and spices. I lived out there for a little while and it's a beautiful part of the state. I need to make another day trip over there before it snows.


The mint-infused honey shown above (and included in the giveaway!) is great for adding to hot tea. Refreshing and invigorating, you could also consider adding it to a homemade salad dressing. You can actually add honey to a lot of things... like a smoothie, which I just made the other night. Delicious.

As of right now, there are seven different honey varieties to choose from, all with various benefits and feelings - energizing & warming, spicy & awakening, and floral & calming, just to name a few.


Golden Goddess Honey is also invested in helping advance the survival and well-being of the honeybee and a healthy environment. Save the bees!

And if you truly do want to help the bees, consider entering to win a beekeeping starter kit. Believe it or not, it's all worth $1,400 and includes a starter kit equipment, a book library, and online coaching


So who wants some honey? Samantha is graciously offering three jars of raw honey (mint, cinnamon, and vanilla) to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.

And with Groupon Coupons I'm able to find coupons for stuff that I'd be spending money on anyway. Might as well save some money with a coupon.

One brand that I've been loyal to for years is Hanes. It's not cool to talk to your friends about underwear, but I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Hanes.


Of course I'm going to mention that Groupon has plenty of Hanes coupons. If you're in the market for new clothes, grab a coupon first.

Here are just a few of the coupons available:
  • 20% off

Handmade fleece blankets from MemasCreations

Happy Veterans Day, everyone. I didn't plan it this way, but I've got something that's kind of fitting for Veterans Day. We're in the thick of Fall right now, and it's fleece blanket time at my house.

The MemasCreations shop has some cool fleece blankets right now, including some winter themes (is it really almost winter?). These are fun for kids, but what adult doesn't need a warm blanket?

Barb, owner of the shop, has been sewing since childhood and learned her craft from her mother and grandmother. With a smile on her face, she believes her love of sewing is transferred to her work. And it shows, because she makes great stuff!

Barb is both a perfectionist (which I relate to very much) and someone who is passionate about the process of creation. When she finishes a piece she enjoys a sense of accomplishment and thinking of the pleasure her work might bring to someone.


Her work has definitely brought my family pleasure. A quality blanket always brings a smile to face, and anyone who has the luxury of bundling up with one.

The blankets consist of two layers of fleece and are tied together on all four sides. In the two blankets shown in this post, the top layer is navy with a pattern, and the bottom layer is solid white.

How big are they? The measurements are 50" x 72," which is big enough for even a tall guy like myself. I really like my white and green anchors blanket and I've caught my cat sneaking onto it a few times. It's a coveted blanket at my house.

My wife actually used to make tie fleece blankets for friends, so we're very fond of this style. The blanket is soft, double-sided, and reversible if you want. I won't chill on the couch without it.



The MemasCreations handmade tie fleece blankets are the perfect gift for anyone. Get one for yourself, give one as a gift for friends or family, or even get one for your beloved pets! Winter is just around the corner...

Who wants to bundle up with one of these?! Barb is graciously offering a U.S. pattern fleece blanket (navy & stars) to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader.

NEW! Mediflow's Floating Comfort Pillow

Last year I posted a Mediflow review, and now we're back with a brand new product in their line of pillows to give away!

My neck has been bothering me of late thanks to sitting and staring at a computer for hours every day. My neck and head deserves support. After all, we spend a third of our life in bed so we might as well pamper ourselves.

I have the pleasure of the brand new Floating Comfort waterbase pillow, clinically shown to improve the quality of your sleep. Mediflow helps you sleep unlike any other pillow on the market.


Water in a pillow? That's an unusual thing. The Mediflow pillow has a soft, hypoallergenic fiber filling which is supported by a water pouch and fiberfill layer. If you need a pillow for neck pain, the pillow has been clinically shown to reduce tossing and turning.

Check out the Mediflow Kickstarter campaign for more details about how and why they need to showcase this new product to the public. And if you're one of the first 500 people to back the Kickstarter early bird reward, you'll get a Floating Comfort pillow for 50% off!

You can easily add water to the bladder and adjust the support level to get the comfort level that's right for you. It's pretty cool, and does not have the sloshing effect that a waterbed does thankfully. Whether you prefer soft, medium, or firm comfort, you can customize it to your liking.


The new Floating Comfort pillow features the exclusive Responsive Support™ waterbase® system. When combined with the new, exclusive CombedLoft™ fiberfill comfort layer, you get a pillow of unsurpassed quality and performance. Get the best night’s sleep with both support and comfort.

PurelyAlpaca's Adventure Required winter hats

Miss out on the alpaca socks giveaway a couple months ago? I've been on a minor alpaca kick thanks to hanging out with the animals this past summer.

Soon after starting their farm, Purely Alpaca opened a small store showcasing alpaca products to visitors of their farm. The first web store opened in 2002, and the demand for more products continued to grow. Today they've got a huge collection! It's almost overwhelming.

Since the beginning, Purely Alpaca has offered new features, more customer services, and a wider collection of quality alpaca products, including some awesome winter hats. Look no further for "wearable art" made with luxurious, naturally unique alpaca fiber.

Kingsley hat - oatmeal

Purely Alpaca is the exclusive distributor for Adventure Required, a Peruvian outreach endeavor which helps the indigenous peoples of Peru to produce attractive alpaca hats themed after great explorers.

The hat I've got - the Kingsley hat - is named after Charles Kingsley. It's available in a variety of sizes and you can wear it folded for a more snug fit, or of course unfolded. 

A blessed thing it is for any man or woman to have a friend, one human soul whom we can trust utterly, who knows the best and worst of us, and who loves us in spite of all our faults. — Charles Kingsley

Did you know there are more than 20 natural shades of their fiber? It's soft like cashmere and stronger than wool. Soft and strong is not very common. It's unique in that it's extremely light, yet retains the ability to keep you warm.

My first experience meeting alpacas in July.

Only the best alpaca is used to craft these hats. Each hat is made from 100% baby alpaca wool. From the farms that produce the alpaca fibers to the hands that knit each hat, everyone is treated with the utmost respect - the way things should be.

At the moment there are seven colors available for the Kingsley, and I'm thinking the purple would be a good gift for that special lady in your life. I've got the boring brown, but it's what I like.


With new designers and manufacturers getting into the industry, alpaca clothing and gifts continue to expand. PurelyAlpaca will continue to show the latest interesting products created from the exquisite, naturally unique alpaca fiber.

So who wants a winter hat?! PurelyAlpaca has been gracious enough to offer an alpaca hat from the Adventure Required line to one lucky Giveaway Guy reader, a $38 value.
