Thanks to our friends at Gone Digging we have a personalised calendar (worth £19.99) to giveaway to one lucky Loquax user. You’ll be able to choose from one of 12 designs and have it personalised with your own name or someone else’s (an ideal Christmas present perhaps?).

Personalised Calendar

Gone Digging offer a wide range of personalised gifts for all occasions, including Christmas and Birthdays, and their top products include original newspapers from when you were born, personalised football history books, spoof newspapers and personalised calendars.

Buying personalised gifts is easy as Gone Digging guides you through the steps required. For example on the “FA Cup Final Win” spoof newspaper you can specify name, age, football team and even upload a photo. You also get to review everything before you place your order!

So how can you win a personalised calendar with Loquax?

We want you to go to Gone Digging and visit the “Spoof Newspapers” section. Choose a theme you like and then come back to the blog and leave a message naming the theme and who you’d send it to (you can even explain why)!

It could be your partner, best friend, family member, celebrity even Jason or Kirsty (they’re the people who run Loquax by the way)!

The closing date will be the 10th November 2008 and usual Loquax rules apply.

Note – your answer may go into blog moderation so please don’t submit your answer more than once! Also it’s not a tiebreaker competition either!

The competition was won by Julie-j

  • sasba

    I would choose the female christmas no. 1

    Not i might sound greedy but it would have to be for myself. I just adore xmas and it is no. 1 occasion in this house. Every year from i was about 13 all i wanted was a recording studio experance i asked every year but never got it. this year I asked for money for that if i dont get it i can start saving to buy it myself. Imagine lookin at a paper with me being chistmas no. 1. Magic

  • janewendy

  • wilsonkick

    if i won i would choose the Love and Romance Calendar

    i would give it to my sons girlfriend – she is lovely, and has ”calmed” my son down a lot – he was in a lot of trouble – generally ‘going nowhere with his life’ – he now has a job – is in early every night and is ppaying back all the money he owes people – she is a gem…

  • Dougal1972

    I’d choose ‘Best Dad’ for my other half from our two children.

  • devon007

    What a great idea. I’d love to do one for my Brother putting him in No. 10. He’s quite canny with finances and he’d love to be in charge 🙂

  • area

    I would choose Video Gamer of the year because when my son is home from university he (and his friends) take up permanent residence in our lounge.

  • emma155

  • t1gger

    Would have to be Sexiest Woman Alive.

    Well I can dream. 42 in November.

  • bikerchick

    It would have to be Video Gamer of the Year for my Brother – every time he gets a new game he disappears up to his room for days on end until he comes back down jubilant that he has completed it – he baiscally emerges for work, food and a shower!!

  • car01e

    it would definately have to be the sexiest woman alive…not for me but for a freind of mine!


  • susanms

    I’d choose “video gamer of the year” for my son.
    He life seems to revolve around his PS3!

  • SBrunette

    I would pick Knighted by the Queen for Darth for all her ITV postings!

  • sheep

    I would pick the Six Nations Rugby Triumph – England for our mate Matt who is a big England supporter and who I gave a Wales 6 Nations 2008 Grand Slam mug to a few weeks ago. This would more than make up for it!

  • Paddys Kim

    Football player of the year for my husband as Im not sure how he would feel being made England manager :o)

  • aliali

    I would pick Knighted by the Queen for my brother.
    He does a lot of charity work , and would give anyone in need his last penny.

  • littleanne

    I chose my daughter as video gamer of the year cos she loves playing games

  • janey81

    I would have to pick England football manager for my brother as he is always saying he could do a better job!!!

  • brenda.heads

    ‘Gamer of the Year’

    But I would have to toss a coin to decide which of my sons to send it to.


  • mb772

    I would choose the Love and Romance Calendar for me and Hubby as it would bring a smile to our faces even when planning chores and dental visits!

  • gypsy1

    i would choose the ‘christmas no 1’ for my daughter as she loves singing and dancing .

  • Make sure you read the question properly… the theme should be from the “Spoof Newspapers” section!

  • pooterfreak

    I would select ‘Christmas Number 1 for Him’ for my husband. He plays in a Shadows tribute band which bores me rigid (I call them The Saddos) so this would be appropriate. I especially like the mention of Cliff Richard in the spoof….a nice touch!

  • jammyface

    It would have to be the “Best Dad” spoof newspaper, for my husband from our kids. Simply because he isnt!

  • lucidlupin

    I would choose New Prime Minister for my daughter’s boyfriend to wind her up as she is studying politics and they don’t seem to do one for female PM’s! 😉

  • dynamicdragon75

    Oh this is great! I’d chose Britain’s next top model for the Loquax front page duck – it’s about time he (or she) got the recognition it deserved!… and then give it to my friend who’s not only Loquax mad – but a MAJOR duck fan! You know what to expect for Christmas Cath…

  • alison66

    “New England Manager” would be the one that I picked, it would be a lovely Christmas present for Phil my OH

  • marymod

    I love Football Player of the Year and would choose it for my son who is 7 and just started doing footie club after school. On his first match he was voted man of the match and was just so proud and excited – he would so love something like this.

  • jenna4steve

    I would choose video gamer of the year for my other half as he spends most of his spare time on a games console.

  • sunshine71

    I would chose the Celeb-tastic Birthday Bash for Heather Durrant! (female)
    As she is a fab Mum to 7 and grandmother to 11, though thinks she is still 21 and hasn’t any kids in a nice way!
    She loves to party and go out with her kids as one of them, she never dresses drab, but rather funky!
    (not bad for a old girl of 63, but shush,don’t say I said that, as she says 21 again lol!)
    It would make a wonderful Birthday present for a Woman who is zany and has a birthday just after Christmas!

  • carolesul

    Knighted by the Queen, arise, sir Gavin, Henson of course, because he’s got the looks, the hair, the body he smells nice and he goes to church a lot x

  • Polarbear

    After great consideration and all off ooooo at least 25 seconds, i’d would have to have the Daily Mirror- Prime Minister headline- i could SO put the country to rights by teatime, but the other 4 plus years of my tenure at number 10 would be boring as everything would be running so smoothly, i’d have nowt to do except continue entering competitions on the worlds best comping web site (Loquax of course), you never know i might even get the new USA President (who ever it comes to be) into coming, and nothing could be more prestigeous than Loquax receiving the Royal Warrant from HM if i got her signed up as well. Why we could even put a little crown on the loquax duck and give her an honoury title- Her Royal Duckness and her very own, Duckingham Palace.

    Now wheres all the smilies……. lol.

  • MountainAsh

    I would love to win the celebtastic birthday headline. I have recently inherited a lovely stepdaughter and it’s her 21st in March. For various reasons she was not allowed to see her beloved Daddy for nearly 8 yrs. We would love to make this a birthday to remember.

  • kathrynann

    England football manager for my other half – he could do a much better job – of course!!!

  • Caz2

    I think it would have be Knighted by the queen for my dad. He always thinks he deserves a knighthood for putting up with my mum all these years!!

  • roseh

    I would chose the “Wimbledon win” for my sporty brother. It’s about time a Brit won!

  • gaynorj

    I would choose Wimbledon Win for my mother. She is always reminding me how she got to the final of the Durham Schools Girls Tennis Tournement and how she could have been a star if she had stuck at it…… I think it’s a bit late now that she is 82 though 😉

  • cat

  • shestheone

    I would choose Wimbledon Win – Women’s Final for my daughter it would really wind her up because she hates tennis but I love it and I’m always saying I wish I’d been a pushy mother and made her play so that she could win wimbledon for me.

  • susanjessejames

    I would choose myself as next prime minister as I am certain that alhough hubby is an avid newspaper reader ( at least 2- 3 a day)he would never notice it was me on the front page, its taken him years of training himself to neither listen to/or notice me ( still love him ‘tho)

I have so many memories of events that have happened in my life so when I turn to a particular season it will bring back all the memories relating to that season.

  • julie-j

    Would have to be the new England manager for my hubby. The way he shouts at the telly when the football’s on, he would obviously do a much better job than any of the other managers have ever done.

    Definitely ‘Best Dad’ – my husband is a fantastic husband and has finished work to look after our five children (ages 6, 5, 5 (twins), 2 & 8 months) ready for when I go back to work from maternity leave early next year.
    This calendar would be a great reminder to him of how valued he is every time he checks it to see what the children and us are up to that week!

  • Red Robin

    I would choose ‘best dad’ and send it to my husband who is currently serving abroad

  • yd1556

For the past three years she has worked 60 hours a week, been a full time carer for her Mum and been there for me, my husband and our family through some very difficult times. No matter how tired or busy she has been she has always had time for us and our problems. If I could choose one person to be knighted it would most certainly be her.. and since I can’t do it for real this would be the next best thing.. what a great idea for a gift! Grandma sadly passed away on Monday and so this would be an ideal gift to show that her care and dedication has been appreciated and noted, thank you for highlighting the site.

  • Roybarb
