10 Holiday Prize Ideas for Your Next Sweepstakes
This post with thought starters for holiday prize ideas for your next sweepstakes was provided by our new Account Coordinator, Melissa Chernet.
Fall has finally arrived, which means the holidays are just around the corner. Haunted houses, turkey, and Santa Claus are on your customers’ minds – make their dreams come true by offering prizes they would want in your upcoming promotion.
Here are some holiday prize ideas for your next sweepstakes:
1. Pumpkin Picking/Hay Ride Trip
It’s not fall until leaves have fallen and you have a pumpkin on your front porch. The best way to ring in the fall weather is to treat your customers to a day of Pumpkin Picking and Hay Rides. They will be able to bring home their own pumpkins.
2. Haunted House Entry
Boo-lieve it or not, the scarier the better during Halloween season. Two tickets of entry into a Haunted House would be the perfect Halloween giveaway for your customers!
3. Pumpkin Carving Class
Make heads turn with your one of a kind Jack O’Lantern. Offer your winners the chance to carve their own pumpkins and make their hollow-ween one to remember.
Was it really Halloween if you and your friends didn’t know what to dress up as so you choose a Marvel superhero or some sort of animal? I didn’t think so. Give your winners the ultimate costume giveaway for them and 4 friends. Now they will definitely be winning this year’s costume contest!
5. Catered Meal
Thanksgiving is all about being thankful for what you have, not being stressed out over how you should prepare the cranberry sauce or what side dishes you will whip up for your vegan cousin. One way to ease the holiday pressure for your winner is to offer a catered meal for them and their family. Even cousin Paul will be pleased.
6. Recipe Book
Give your winners the ultimate gift of receiving a Top Rated Recipe Book this Thanksgiving. Your winner will finally be able to beat their cousin Susan at their Annual Stuffing Showdown. Say goodbye to the stuffing, Susan, there’s a new stuffing chef in town.
7. Kitchen Tools/Gadgets
Another prize your winners would enjoy all year round would be new kitchen tools and gadgets. These can be tools ranging from utensils to blenders. You could partner up with Crate and Barrel or another kitchen supply shop and make your own collection. This paves the way for more business opportunities as well as making your winners happy!
For Christmas/ Hanukkah:
8. Holiday Movie Bundle
Cold weather means more time home in front of the fireplace curled up in a blanket, the question is what are you going to watch? What better way to reward your customers than with a bundle of holiday classics (we are partial to Elf and Die Hard) to help get them in the holiday spirit!
9. Holiday Decorations
A wreath on the front door or Menorahs in the window must mean holiday season has finally arrived! What better way to reward your customers than with all new holiday decorations in and around their house. Their holiday will no longer consist of them worrying about how Santa will find their house this year.
10. Vacation Packages
Offering an all-inclusive Caribbean getaway or a tropical cruise during the winter holidays would grab your customer’s attention. They would be able to escape the cold weather and have you to thank for that!
