Golden Gate Giveaway | RobynsOnlineWorld.com

Next week I am taking a short trip to San Francisco (work related) but I thought it would be fun to do a small surprise giveaway. While I am in San Francisco I will pick up a few little souvenirs and such for the prize. I do not know what it will be yet, so it will be a surprise for the winner and me!

You can enter each day by leaving a comment and letting me know an item you would like to see included in the prize. Remember, this is just a small giveaway, I can’t include the actual bridge or anything LOL! Each day just enter a new item that you think would be fun to see in the prize package.

The Giveaway: Surprise Package of items Robyn picks up in San Francisco!

Required Entry: Leave a comment telling me what kind of souvenir from San Francisco you would like to see included in the prize. You can do this once a day as long as the item is different each day.
Winners notified by mail only, so make sure I have a way of accessing your email address when you comment.

Extra Entries: The following are all extra things you can do for more entries. Leave an additional comment for each thing you do to earn extra entries.

  • Follow @RobynsWorld on Twitter and send a tweet about the giveaway. You can do this one time per day. Leave a direct link to your tweet (instructions here) in your comment for an extra entry for each tweet. Just click the Tweet button below and follow simple instructions

  • BONUS: While I am in San Francisco next week (Mon, Tues, Wed) I will share a SECRET WORD on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and/or Instagram. You can enter any of those in another comment as an extra entry (as many as I post you can enter).

Rules: You may only enter the stated number of times per method listed above. No entering on behalf of others, using extra identities or others identities, no automated program entries, etc. If I catch you cheating you will be banned from this and all of my future giveaways! This giveaway is only open to those in the USA, ages 18+. All entries must be received by 11:59 pm Central Time on Monday, May 26, 2014.

2 Robyn Wright May 15, 2014 at 4:15 pm

Yum! I will definitely see what I can do about adding that!

A Golden Gate Snowglobe

13 Robyn Wright May 15, 2014 at 4:16 pm

I would love to do a snow globe but they do not allow them on the airplanes any longer. At least in carry-on bags, I rarely check baggage.

It would be fun to include Ghirardelli chocolates…Ghirardelli Square in S.F. is lovely…

17 Robyn Wright May 15, 2014 at 4:16 pm

Yummy!

Hi! I think an awesome souvenir would be a fun little toy from the Kid Robot store. They have really cool stuff!

23 Robyn Wright May 15, 2014 at 4:17 pm

I had not heard of that, will have to check it out!

28 Robin May 14, 2014 at 5:07 am

A souvenir from one of the shops at Fisherman’s Wharf would be fun–like the San Francisco Sock Market…

29 Robyn Wright May 15, 2014 at 4:18 pm

I hope to get a chance to go to Fisherman’s Wharf on this trip for sure!

30 Margie May 14, 2014 at 9:18 am

A fridge magnet or small picture frame might be fun.
Have a good trip.

31 Robyn Wright May 15, 2014 at 4:18 pm

Some delicious chocolate from Ghirardelli!

34 Robyn Wright May 15, 2014 at 4:18 pm

This is going to be a must I think!

35 nanlara May 14, 2014 at 5:27 pm

Something from chinatown

36 Robyn Wright May 15, 2014 at 4:18 pm

Good suggestion!

37 nanlara May 14, 2014 at 5:28 pm
38 Sheryl May 14, 2014 at 8:20 pm

I would like some salt water taffy from Z. Cioccolato.

39 Robyn Wright May 15, 2014 at 4:19 pm

I have never been a taffy fan, but my husband and brother both love it. Will see what I can do.

I think a cute Golden Gate Bridge magnet would be nice.

42 Robyn Wright May 15, 2014 at 4:19 pm

Definitely have to have something with the GG Bridge!

Something from Alcatraz would be a fun souvenir too!

46 Robyn Wright May 15, 2014 at 4:19 pm

I still have not ever been to Alcatraz. Hubby and I need to take a regular vacation out to SF one of these days so I have more time.

47 tmy56 May 15, 2014 at 11:44 am

We collect magnets from the places we travel to & display them on the side of our fridge – so a San Francisco magnet would be nice.

48 Robyn Wright May 15, 2014 at 4:20 pm

I do the same, a magnet for all the cities!

51 Margie May 15, 2014 at 6:56 pm

I could definitely eat some chocolates.

52 Robin May 16, 2014 at 4:48 am

San Francisco is known for its Boudin sourdough bread, though that would be hard to transport…so a package of sourdough crackers might be a good souvenir…

53 Margie May 16, 2014 at 6:50 am

A coffee mug with a SF scene would be nice.

54 gkran May 16, 2014 at 8:40 pm

Plates or bowls with some of the sights on them would be nice. Local treats such as cookies, chocolates or candy.

55 gkran May 16, 2014 at 8:42 pm

56 Margie May 17, 2014 at 4:27 am

A pen or pencil with SF logo

57 Robin May 17, 2014 at 5:23 am

My souvenir recommendation for today is coffee beans from Caffe Trieste in San Francisco!

58 Robin May 18, 2014 at 5:07 am

Another good souvenir idea would be peppermints in a little collectible tin (e.g. http://www.sanfrancisco-giftshop.com/San-Francisco-Peppermints-in-a-Tin_p_93.html )

59 Margie May 18, 2014 at 6:12 am

How about some scorecards with a AD scene.

60 Margie May 18, 2014 at 6:14 am

Yikes, my spellchecker went crazy! That’s notecards with a SF scene!

61 sahairah May 18, 2014 at 5:43 pm

A T-shirt or coffee mug with some iconic SF symbol on it like a trolley or the Painted Ladies

62 sandy May 18, 2014 at 9:30 pm

coffee would be yummy

63 Robin May 19, 2014 at 4:38 am

A tote bag with trolleys on it would also be a fun souvenir!

64 SheilaV May 19, 2014 at 7:01 pm
