    I've had a few, I love an unexpected win! 
    Last one was Harry Potter & Disney Lex Go Games. I assume from a MD as they already have your address.
    But also had some Wool show up from Gathered, A Sanitiser bundle from Natural Health Mag, Cat Litter Hamper which I think was from YourCat and a Cricut Craft Bundle from a craft magazine, I traced that back to a comp that was months old! 
    These are all from the last year. 
    The Lex Go was from Radio Times I think.

    I know I've had a couple, but the only one I can remember was one of those subscription type boxes for cats. Luckily I do have cats so everyone was happy!

    Unrelated, but I did have a Chinese takeaway turn up a month ago with no receipt, phone number or menu in it. I'm pretty sure I didn't enter a competition for that.  :D
    That's hilarious, I'm intrigued to know what it was and whether you ate it LOL
    Haha! It was 2x sweet & sour chicken, some chicken balls, chips and prawn crackers - and after confirming with my neighbours that wasn’t theirs I did indeed eat it (we were hungry and hadn’t sorted dinner yet so I assume it was some kind of divine intervention or something)  😉

    I've had my first one ever this month - a Mira shower worth about £200! Turned out to be a comp I entered a few months back when our shower was on the fritz, but it's now fixed so the new one is just sitting in my office while I decide what to do with it 😂

    I've just got back into comping too and hope I have some surprise wins turn up soon!
    Years ago I had a pair of Hudl's turn up (the Tesco tablet) and I never did find out where they were from.

    Last week I had some cake mixes turn up out of the blue from a Halloween win then on Monday some gingerbread ingredients from the same comp.  Grandchildren were here so have taken these home.  Years ago I had a number of things turn up unexpected.    A brilliant robot for grandson never found out where it are from.  Once when we were on holiday our neighbour took in a Chimenea and a very heavy parcel.   I didn’t know what a Chimenea was and the heavy was a bag of cement.  Never did find out where it came from.
