Now that you’ve had your turkey (or you’re at least planning an Olympic swimming pool full of turkey sandwiches, platters and curry for the coming week), it’s time to turn your attention to more presents. If you got a whole load of stuff you didn’t really want, then what better way to get what you really wanted than getting your mitts on a whole hamper of IWOOT products? (Clue: there isn’t one. We thought about it for ages).

So, without further ado, we’d like to unveil our absolutely Shameless Social Networking Competition! There are three ways in which you can enter this festival of transparent self-promotion:

1: Post the following utterly shameless, attention-seeking message as your Facebook status update:

“YOUR MUM… would definitely change her status to try and win a GIANT IWOOT SALE HAMPER – why don’t you?

2: Post this message on the IWOOT Fan page wall:

“YOUR MUM… would definitely post this message to try and win a GIANT IWOOT SALE HAMPER – why don’t you?

3: Re-tweet the following @iwootblog on your Twitter feed:

“YOUR MUM… would definitely RT to try and win a GIANT IWOOT SALE HAMPER – why don’t you? #yourmum

As we said, it’s totally shameless. Just post that as your status, we’ll do a search for anyone with that status on Facebook and Twitter and pick the winners at random from that selection and anyone who posted the correct message on our Facebook wall. Make sure you enter before midday on December 28th 2009!

The Prizes
