This post is sponsored and part of my ongoing collaboration with eBay.
One of my favorite kinds of guides to write on eBay is a gift guide because giving someone a gift that makes them happy, that might even help them feel deeply seen as a person, becomes its own gift to me. And because I'm on Pinterest so much curating good things to pin, it's become a passion of sorts to gather up these gift ideas into guides and blog posts to share with you.
This leads us to the fourth and final theme for eBay's Be the Blogger contest, which means that this is your last chance to enter to win $1000 to spend on eBay.
Be the Blogger Theme 4: Half-Way to Holiday
What this final theme is all about: The holidays will be here before you know it! Get a jump-start and create your ultimate gift guide.
Check out my new gift guide full of mindfulness gifts to get a feel for what a gift guide looks like and the format that works well.
And here's the part where I tell you that you should enter. For real. Not only because this is the last round of the contest. But also because gift guides are fun and pretty easy to write. And because we're in the middle of summer and lots of people are on vacation and having adventures in the sun, you might not have that much competition with your guide. So write one. Like right now.
Here are some tips to get your started:
- Think about the niche things you love to share with your friends. Do you love journaling, coffee, Star Trek, or decorating? You could create gift guides on any of these themes. Make it fun for yourself.
- Another great thing about creating a gift guide on eBay is that you can link right to the products you're sharing about and you can snag photos from the listings on eBay to use as part of your guide.
- Be sure to include at least one photo with words on it so it can be shared on social media. See my guides for examples.

You will submit your guide on that page too, and be sure to choose my name as the blogger you follow when you submit because I'll be choosing the winner and will highlight the winner's guide on Pinterest to my 3.7 million followers.
