Gift Baskets for Sweepstakes Enthusiasts


Are you stuck for an idea on what gift to buy for the sweepstakes enthusiast on your list? Actually sweepstakers love food, clothes and other traditional gifts as much as the next person. But you can easily surprise them with a sweepstakes-themed gift basket complete with a bow on top.

The size of the basket you use depends on your presentation and what items you choose from the choices given here. Wrapping the basket in clear or colored cellophane is a lovely way to keep everything in place. You can add bows or curly ribbon. Just be as creative as you like.

Avid sweepstakers use a lot of mailing supplies. Plain white paper, unlined 3 x 5 cards, postcards and #10 envelopes are the basics you should include in the basket. Postage would be a big plus as this adds up quickly. But you don't have to break the bank yourself. A book of letter stamps and one of postcard stamps would be a thoughtful addition. The possibility of instant winning with a few scratch-off tickets placed prominently in the basket will add a bit of spice and color too.

A gift subscription to a sweepstakes newsletter such as Best Sweepstakes or SweepSheet is another option. You can go to their websites to purchase one and place a card or receipt in the basket that lets your gift recipient know about the subscription or give them a check in the amount of the subscription.

But how can you make your basket stand out with just mailing supplies and a gift card? You can definitely get creative and jazz it up. Many sweepstakers like to enter skill contests so playing cards, small puzzles and games would be fun additions. Lucky charms, specialty money-burning candles or other items associated with good luck are another way to further personalize the gift. Is your friend religious or superstitious? Add a charm or figurine of a saint, deity or other figure that has special meaning to them. The sweepstaker with a green thumb might like a lucky bamboo plant. Fortune cookies or homemade sugar cookies decorated with a luck theme is a beautiful way to round out a generous gift that's sure to satisfy sweepstakes fans.
