What's an Epic Giveaway Look Like?

So here's the question I have. Book bloggers and authors all host or do giveaways. The best giveaways are those that have the actual books - autographed ones are better - but is there more to this? Is there a cleaver giveaway out there that you've seen? Something that isn't a Kindle, Nook, IPad, yacht, personal island - but something that book lovers/readers would enjoy receiving? I once saw a book giveaway with nail polish because it was a young adult novel. But The Legend of Lady MacLaoch, what does that require? Besides a smoldering clan chief with his own personal castle?  :0D

Ideas?

Whiskey! (Is that legal?)

That's an AWESOME idea!! I'll have to research laws regarding giving away free booze. Tho that opens a nearly endless avenue in which to go with the gift giving like what about a Scotch whisky tasting glass with the MacLaoch clan motto etched on it?? :0D

I used to haunt Katie MacAlister's site quite often and she had bookmarks, fun doornob hangers, packets for the various characters you could become a "member" of (guardians, daemons, minions, etc.). I actually got the doornob hanger and still hand it. It has a nicer side and a nauhgty side. Regardless, it was all with reasonable shipping if that was a concern because it was all flat. There are other bookmarks that can be done with beads, I wonder if you can find one fitting you?
