Give it away, now?

So my birthday is coming up (September), and I was toying with the idea of doing a giveaway on my birthday. I'm not really sure as to what I'd "give away", though. Thoughts? Ideas? I don't have anything really "giveable" here on hand, and although I love y'all dearly, I can't really afford to be spending much right now either. (I can't wait to get on a regular pay schedule again....!!)


OK, there. :) But seriously, if people have any ideas, please dish. The only thing I could think of was something "local" like a piece of the beach or some freeze-dried grouper (LOL, j/k) but while my city is cool and awesomely amazing, we're not really well known for anything super. (Although we have been called the "Hollywood of the East"; lots of stuff is filmed here, including Dawson's Creek! Trivia: Where am I? LOL) And I'm not terribly crafty to the point of making something other people would want.

I think it would be fun if I had a good idea!

My birthday is in September, too. I love the idea of a giveaway for the birthday, but I have no idea what to tell you to give away. :)

Hmm... do you like taking photographs? You've posted some nice ones before. Maybe you can take some gorgeous local photos, print them in black and white, and put into a cool frame?

Just my geeky thoughts!

Sami, you're so generous! Birthdays are supposed to be about getting presents, not giving them! Hahahaha.

Hmmm. What about a "boredom-buster" kit? You always seem to have some good strategies for beating boredom (eg. BLOGGING!), so maybe you could share some of them with the lucky winner? I don't know what you could put into it - maybe a mix CD of favourite anti-boredom songs, or a cheap watercolour paints set, or some crayons? No idea! All I know is that anything you come up with will obviously be wonderful.

You have a very awesome personality - I suggest that if you were going to do a giveaway, you should do a "Piece of Me" giveaway. You can put in your favorite things, or perhaps things that you feel describe or represent you.
