Have you participated in gift exchanges in the past for the holidays? I have in a few different ways, one way with my girlfriends, we all purchase say a $30 gift, could be a throw blanket, a cocktail gift set, or maybe some DVDs. Another exchange we’ve done with white elephant gifts, a hilarious way to get rid of that odd garage sale find and laugh your way through a party!
This holiday season, Crown Royal, known for it’s Canadian Whiskey, is hosting it’s second annual Yankee Swap and gift exchange featuring me here at The Mom Reviews and other prominent bloggers, YouTubers and other social media influencers to kick off the holiday season! The prizes are amazing so far, like super amazing! They’re calling it Pass the Crown, and you can follow the craziness on Twitter by watching the hashtag #PasstheCrown.
So here’s how it works:
Over the course of 4 weeks, every site playing the game will receive an awesome gift from Crown Royal on a pre-designated day. The gift will be virtually wrapped in one of Crown Royal’s iconic purple bags embroidered with a hint as to what’s inside. Upon receipt, we each have until 5pm that day to decide if we want to open the bag to find out what’s inside, or steal a gift already opened by a person before us – forcing them to take whatever was in our bag! Once my day is here, you’re going to have to help me guess what’s in my bag and let me know if I should keep it or steal!
At the end of the game, whatever I win, I will have one to giveaway for a lucky reader of The Mom Reviews, so follow along, comment on my posts, retweet them, and use the #passthecrown hashtag! See what’s been handed out so far, and I’ve got a great placement there down at the bottom!
For every Tweet, Facebook post or YouTube video using #PassTheCrown, Crown Royal will stuff one bag to send to soldiers overseas as part of The Heroes Project (Click here to learn more about the Heroes Project on the Crown Royal website).
…and if you like the embroidery work on that Crown Royal bag, its available to adults (21+) on www.CrownRoyal.com for $9.95 and features a max of 40 characters – perfect for the person who says it short and sweet. Or, you can also personalize a Crown Royal bottle label – for free.
Stay tuned to see what I’m opening…
