The five lucky readers who each won a $50 gift card to RedEnvelope are: Beverly, Jason, Gail, Carrie, and socalgal51.
Thanks to RedEnvelope for donating the prizes and to everyone who commented and entered. It’s good to know everyone has the same problems I do with certain…ahem…family members and friends.

Believe it or not, the holidays really are right around the corner. And to help with your gift giving (or maybe you’re giving a little gift to yourself), we’ve got a terrific giveaway to kick off your week.
Just comment to this post by 11:59 pm on Thursday, October 28th to enter for your chance to win one of five $50 gift cards for RedEnvelope, a site for unique and personalized gifts.
RedEnvelope is all about indulging yourself or someone you love in a little bit of luxury and they offer everything from spa packages to silk pajamas to help you do just that. And, since presentation is part of the experience when you’re giving a gift (or an indulgence for yourself), everything comes packaged in the signature red gift box with ivory ribbon pictured on the left. As someone who received a gift from RedEnvelope, I can personally report that it’s lovely.
To make the giveaway even more fun, we’d love it if you’d tell us who is the toughest person on your gift list. No need to name names, of course, but who leaves you scratching your head until the very last minute each and every year? If you’d just prefer to comment, that’s okay, too.
Remember, this contest closes on 11:59 pm on Thursday, October 28th. And a further note: Each gift card is good for $50 at the RedEnvelope site and expires on 12/31/2010. The cards were given to AAR for reader giveaways by RedEnvelope.
So, fess up: Who stumps you every year?

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, so we wanted to put together a special romance giveaway for our readers. We have seen a lot of fabulous new authors making their debuts in the past couple of years. Seeing so many good new voices makes one very hopeful about the future of romance and we hope that these new authors will keep writing for many more years. Several authors whose debuts were published in the past two years have offered prizes for our prize basket this Valentine’s Day and we are very excited to offer it to you! One lucky winner will get a prize basket stuffed full of goodies that includes:
Thanks, everyone, for the wonderful comments in the RedEnvelope giveaway. I loved reading them and I’d bet anyone needing their faith restored in human nature feels the same way.

My thanks to RedEnvelope for the gift cards and to everyone who entered. Reading your comments made my week.

A few years ago, I was going through a stressful time. One day the UPS man brought me something I hadn’t ordered: Beautifully packaged in a big red box and tied with a ribbon, I found a home spa getaway basket. The kit contained everything I needed to kick back and de-stress with some quality Me Time. It also let me know that a friend was thinking of me and wishing me the very best – at a moment when I both least expected and most needed it.
The gift my was my introduction to RedEnvelope, a site for unique and personalized gifts.

Since all of us could use a little Me Time right about now – not to mention that Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, we’ve got a good one today:
