    Damn, so close with the google branded mp3/podcast player!

    Looks pretty funky though, so I got that bit right.

  2. I doubt that I will see anything of the sort.

    Does anyone know what kind of earnings do you have to have to get this schwag?

  4. Adam says:

    Weirdly, I got both this AND a New Years card from Google.

    Even stranger, though, is that at least in my gift package, there was no note of any sort… so I had no idea which division of Google I had gotten the gift from (AdWords? AdSense? Urchin, since I scored ’em a contract when they were charging $?)

    It’s such a thoughtful and cool gift, indeed, but it would have been even that much nicer to see a small typed and (photocopily) signed note from the AdSense team thanking us for our contributions… if only so we’d know where it came from! :)

    Oh, and I don’t necessarily think the gift is sent out based purely on earnings. Mine have been *quite* modest, and though I recently wrote a love/re-commitment letter to AdSense, I’m guessing that I got the gift due to being with AdSense practically since the start :)

  5. Adam says:

    Er, the love/re-commitment letter is here: :D

  6. Tom says:

    I got my kit, awesome.

    I do agree with Adam, if I had not seen this post, I would have had no idea why I got this in the mail. I could have assumed, but with no note in the box, I never would have known for sure.


  7. Adam says:

    I just learned that the gift I got was from my ADWORDS rep after all, not AdSense. So I guess it’s a general-purpose gift :)

  8. Sara says:

    does anyone know what this kit is worth…i have a bet in my office

  9. jon says:

    Sara, on the customs slip [I’m in Canada] it had the value at $43.16 and the Country of Manufacture as China, People’s Republic of.

    I got a simplified version –
    The mouse is not wireless, the flash drive is 64MB, no headset…
    Still very cute :-)

    I got 2 cards (1 for Adwords & 1 for Adsense?) and no indication from which the gift was…

    My friend got a simplified version of this kit. He had only Adword account.


  1. […] Update: Darren at ProBlogger has posted a picture of the gift. […]

  2. […] My AdSense Christmas Present just arrived. It came in a spotted box that said ‘from your friends at Google’. Inside the box was (as reported previously): […]

  3. […] I’ve now got a Google t-shirt (”I’m feeling lucky” is on the back), Google pens and a Google card.  I was wondering what other Google items exist because Darren over at Problogger recently showed a picture of the Adsense Christmas gift that went out to some of the biggest publishers and then I found…. Google Store which I never knew existed.  You can now brand everything – from baby’s first clothing to dog’s leashes – with Google. […]
