Give the Gift of Hipmunk

Bells are ringing, lights are twinkling, fingers are freezing, and warm hot cocoa has never tasted so good. The holidays are rapidly approaching, but finding the *perfect* gift for all your special someones can be agonizing. Welp, we’re here to ease some of that pain and help check a name off your shopping list.
Tell us who you think needs some extra TLC this holiday season (and who you want to check off your list), and we will surprise them with a Hipmunk holiday care package.
From your college roommate (the Hipmunk fanatic) to your best friend (impossible to shop for) to your aunt (needs a new travel site), you tell us who should receive the ‘Munk, and we’ll make it happen for our lucky winners.
The deets:
Tell us why your special someone needs some Hipmunk love this season, in one of four ways:
  • leave a cheery comment on this blog post, 
  • joyfully tweet your tale
  • put a merry message on our Facebook wall
  • or send a neat little note to andrea [at] hipmunk [dot] com.  
Each day this week and next, we will select three of the people nominated to receive the gift of Hipmunk. If you’re a winner, we will send you a DM, FB message, or email to get your friend’s mailing address, and they’ll soon receive a merry surprise in the mail! It’s that easy.
We’ll be drawing from the same pool each day, so you’ll get more chances to win and can enter as often as you’d like. Enter multiple friends as well, and you might just be the best gift giver on the block!
