Stuff sexy in your stocking {GIVEAWAY}

2012 November 12
by Emily Hill

I can count on one hand the times I’ve purchased PEOPLE Magazine this year.

The number quadruples if you count how many times I’ve browsed it in the checkout aisle.

I reserve it as one of my most favorite guilty pleasures and only indulge for plane rides—without kids, of course—and holidays (Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, my birthday). My most favorite time to read PEOPLE Magazine is Christmas break; PEOPLE pairs really well with cinnamon rolls and pajamas, trust me. Somehow Santa always knows to slip an issue of PEOPLE Magazine in my stocking.

I may have to thank him with a kiss or two under the mistletoe.

Of course I doubt PEOPLE Magazine’s Annual Sexiest Man Alive issue is going to make it into my stocking due to its arrival on newsstands November 15th. That’s 5 weeks before Christmas morning—no advent calendar is going to get me through that wait. I mean, just look at the winners from past magazines.


PEOPLE Annual Sexiest Man Alive issue

I’ll probably have to buy my own copy so I can drool over the photos read the articles ASAP and leave Santa to gifting me the most recent issue on Christmas Eve.

I sort of have a thing for handsome men. Good thing I married one.

Though PEOPLE Magazine hasn’t released any sneak peeks into its Annual Sexiest Man Alive issues, I’m wondering if the whole success of The Avengers will have something to do with the winner. I may have pinned a couple of those heroes to “my, you’re handsome” on Pinterest. (I did just say I have a thing for handsome men.)

If I were able to vote, I totally would…and these would be my top three:

  • Ryan Gosling
  • Chris Evans
  • Nathan Fillion


That last one may be a bit of a surprise, but if you’re a Castle fan, then you know exactly what I’m talking about.

I want to hear from you. If you had your choice, who would grace the cover of this year’s PEOPLE Magazine’s Annual Sexiest Man Alive?

And now for the GIVEAWAY!

CVS Pharmacy is giving away one (1) $20 gift card good at any CVS Pharmacy!

That should cover your next handful of PEOPLE Magazine issues, including an eyeful or two of sexy men.

This giveaway will be administered via Rafflecopter.
