12 great Christmas gifts for compers to buy
Are you wondering what to put on your Christmas list this year – or what to buy for family and friends? There are several ‘purchase necessary’ promotions around at the moment that would make great Christmas presents. Keep the receipt, order number or neck collar to enter the competition yourself – then gift the product!
I enjoy entering purchase-necessary promotions because they tend to get far fewer entries than free prize draws, meaning they are easier to win! If you enjoy this type of competition, check my tips for winning on-pack promotions too.
Here’s my top Christmas picks…
Candy Kittens sweets
Buy any Candy Kittens product in store or online and you could win a 7 night Ski Trip to Val D’Isere for you and five of your friends! Either tick the competition box when you buy online, of if you’ve bought in store you can upload your receipt photo here before 31.1.2020
Oxford Landing Estate wine
Buy any Oxford Landing wine at Waitrose (online or in store) and you could win one of four pairs of places on a private wine dinner in London on 21st February 2020.

Smiggle Frozen 2 range
Spend £60 or more on Frozen 2 merchandise at Smiggle, and you could win a family trip to Iceland! This one is a judged tiebreaker competition, with an expensive qualifying purchase – be sure to take time writing your entry and check my tips for winning slogan and tiebreaker competitions!

Pedigree & Dreamies stockings
Don’t leave the pets out! Buy from a range of Pedigree and Dreamies products from a participating Co-op (including the stockings shown here) and then text LAPLAND to 81400. Keep your receipt safe! There’s one prize of a family trip to Lapland. Check the T&Cs for a list of participating stores.

The cheapest I’ve found so far are about £40-£50 on Amazon (affiliate link).
