Hobo Mama Giveaway: 11x14 Premium Photo Calendar from Picaboo $29.99 {1.25; International} CLOSED

This giveaway is now closed. View the winner announcement here. Thank you all so much for entering!



This is a joint giveaway with Hobo Mama Reviews and Natural Parents Network. You may enter at one site only. Please find the section marked "Win it!" for the mandatory main entry and optional bonus entries.

Picaboo closed family calendar


Picaboo is offering my readers a giveaway of an 11 x 14-inch Premium Calendar!

Picaboo offers customized photo books, cards, and calendars. One lucky winner will receive a coupon for a free 12-page glossy photo calendar, valued at $29.99.

Please note that this giveaway prize coupon does NOT include shipping costs, which allows us to open this giveaway internationally. Shipping from Picaboo starts at $5.99 for Priority Mail shipping to the United States, and $15.99 for shipping to Canada. The winner is responsible for verifying and paying shipping and any surcharges to the applicable destination. (Please check before entering if you are not in the U.S.)

With more than 40 themes and hundreds of backgrounds to choose from, and the ability to create your own from scratch, Picaboo makes it easy and fun to create gorgeous calendars that will make it hard to resist flipping to the next month.

Photo pages are completely customizable with Picaboo's easy-to-use software, allowing you to drag-and-drop photos and captions anywhere on a page.

Picaboo recently added editable calendar grids, which allow you to personalize special dates with important occasions like birthdays, anniversaries, or any other event you want to be sure to remember!

The Premium calendar features 12 laminated, glossy photo pages that give your pictures a little extra pop, and matte date pages allow for easy writing.

Use photos from 2010 to create the perfect gift that is enjoyed every day of 2011!

Giveaway details (please note!):

  • This coupon is good for one 12-month Premium Photo Calendar.
  • It does NOT cover applicable shipping costs. Shipping within the United States starts at $5.99 for USPS Priority Mail.
  • The coupon will expire on February 15, 2011. This could be a great Valentine’s Day gift for a friend or loved one!
  • Order by Monday, February 1, to ensure delivery by Valentine’s Day with standard shipping (within the continental U.S.).
  • Picaboo currently ships to these listed countries. Please verify shipping price and availability before entering if you require international shipping.
  • This giveaway is limited to one per person globally, so the same person cannot win the giveaway on more than one site. You're free to enter Picaboo giveaways on multiple sites, but be aware that you can win only one calendar, and a new name will be drawn if the selected winner has already won elsewhere.

Picaboo calendars closed and open interior


I love the idea of making a calendar as a loving and beloved gift for grandparents! Friends of ours make a photo calendar every year for themselves and their family members, placing in thematic photos of their adorable girl for each month — playing in the snow for January, giving a hug for February, romping in flowers for May, visiting the beach for August, and so forth. Each year's calendar is a huge hit, showcasing some of the best photos from the previous year so they can be enjoyed throughout the next one! And, after the year is over, it remains a priceless keepsake.

Another great idea would be to highlight your favorite vacation photos, family photos, nature photos, or perhaps just your favorite photos in general. If you're giving it to a sweetheart, it could be 12 cuddly photos of the two of you!

We're ending this giveaway a little bit sooner than we normally would so that if you win, you have time to get your calendar shipped by Valentine's Day if you like. Remember, the ground shipping cutoff for Valentine's Day delivery to the continental U.S. is February 1.

As a family this year we created one for my mother-in-law -- all of us contributed pictures of her children and grandchildren:) She loved it!!!

Neat giveaway! I would add pictures of our family (me, my husband, our daughter and our kitty) as well as pictures of us next our new house that we'll be moving into soon!! We're actually in the habitat for humanity homeownership program and we're really excited because we've worked very hard on our sweat equity hours over the last year. It would be fun to put all that into a calendar to remember it!
