Birthday Giveaway!


Thanks everyone for all your entries! Please note that comments are now closed.

It's today! Today is Omiyage's 1st birthday and we couldn't be more thrilled to be sharing it with You!

It's been a year filled with lovely Japanese things, crafty goodness, and wonderful people. We had a big mid-year website overhaul (and man, what a great change that was!) and even ended up in Canadian Living!

We learnt that you love washi tape the best and that surprises are always fun! We've weathered a postal strike and lived to tell the tale. We're ready for more!

And so, to thank You, Omiyage's customers and readers of Omiyage Blogs and our Twitter and Facebook friends, for this wonderful year, we wanted to offer a chance to win some Omiyage goodies.

We're giving away 2 extra-special Omiyage Surprise Packs crammed with over $25.00 in cute stationery, lovely washi tape and more! Nope, that's not one of them in the picture up there - that would ruin the surprise, don't you think?




So, you want to win - here's how!


We'll be giving away 2 extra-special Surprise Packs. This giveaway is open internationally!


The winner of the 1st Surprise Pack will be drawn at random from the comments posted on this blog post. We will accept comments on this post until Wednesday, July 20th at 11:59pm Vancouver time. So you've got a week to enter.


The winner of the 2nd Surprise Pack will be drawn at random from subscribers to our new Mailing List. We promise not to flood your inbox with daily emails - we'll be sending out newsletters and news of special and exclusive deals occasionally. Anyone who joins the mailing list up until July 31st at 11:59pm Vancouver time will be eligible to win.


For your chance to win, you must:

1. Comment on the blog - tell us what your favourite Omiyage product is (a link would be extra-nice) or what you wish Omiyage carried. Please ensure you use a valid email address so that we can contact you. And just one entry per person, please! If you're posting using the "Anonymous" setting - please be sure to include your name & email in the text of your comment - or else we won't know who won or how to find you! Thank you!


AND/OR


2. Click on that cute envelope on the right sidebar and join our mailing list.

Want more chances to win? Here's 4 more!
