Winter Raffle Prize Ideas
Ideas for Your Winter Raffle
Need ideas for a wintertime raffle? Winter is a great season for a fundraising raffle and there are lots of prize ideas for the cold weather. Of course, this being the internet, you may not have cold weather in the winter where you live! For all of you, we have included a few products that can be used in any kind of weather.
For the most part, when you think of cold weather, you think of things that will warm you up! For example, a nice cozy blanket or a comforting, warm meal and yummy dessert. Maybe curling up to read a good book or watching your favorite television programs or a movie DVD.
You might also consider products that are useful in the winter weather, like a snow blower, generator, or emergency kit.
Since you can’t get out as much, exercise equipment is a great choice for a winter raffle. Many people are working from home now and would love (and need) a new way to keep in shape.
For generic items, good for any temperature, consider a new electronic device, such as the Echo. Did you know that the Echo Show 5 is one of the most popular raffle prizes in any season!
The product you choose will also depend on the type of group you are and the amount of funds you need to raise. This can vary widely and for the purpose of this article, we are offering a variety of products and price ranges.
Note: I love shopping on Amazon, and you will notice that I suggest many Amazon products. This is for convenience, but also, I earn a commission from any sale generated from this article. It does not affect the price you pay. Thank you for any purchases.

1. S’mores Maker
Too cold to go outside to make your favorite S’mores? No worries! Now you can make them inside with a handy, dandy S’mores Maker. This would make a unique raffle prize for winter.
Our favorite pick is the Nostalgia S’mores Maker because it is a popular brand and well made. It features a Lazy Susan with four trays to hold your ingredients, and electric heater (no flame), plus four roasting forks.
Our Favorite S’mores Maker:

2. Exercise Equipment
Winter is the perfect time to raffle exercise equipment! People don’t want to go outside to exercise, plus many are working from home. Any type of exercise equipment will be great or a combination of several pieces. Treadmills, Stationary Bikes, Hand Weights…there are many choices.
Our favorite is the Pedal Exerciser! Anyone can do this! Great for home workers or for the office. Great to use while watching TV! This is a unique and fun idea for a raffle.
Our Favorite is the Desk Cycle Pedal Exerciser:
DeskCycle Under Desk Bike Pedal Exerciser – Amazon.com
3. Instant Pot / Multi-Cookers
The Instant Pot is a new kitchen gadget that everyone wants. It’s great for cooking a warm meal on a cold day. An Instant Pot can be a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, and more, all in one. Multi-cookers are sometimes called an Instant Pot because this is a well known brand name. You can also find multi-cookers in other brands.
Our favorite pick for a raffle is the Instant Pot (brand) 6 quart, Programmable 7-in-1 Multi-Cooker because we love it! It’s a prize everyone who cooks would love to have. I want one myself. This model is available in 3 sizes and it is a number one best seller on Amazon. That’s enough for me!
Our Favorite Instant Pot:
Instant Pot DUO60 6 Qt 7-in-1 Multi-Use Programmable Pressure Cooker, Slow Cooker, Rice Cooker, Steamer, Sauté, Yogurt Maker and Warmer
4. Snow Blower
A snow blower is a great winter raffle prize if you live in an area with snow. Amazon has a large variety of snow blowers in all sizes, styles, and prices. Choose one that would work best in your area, and one that will make everyone envy the winner!
Our favorite pick is the Joe Snow 22 inch 12-Amp Electric Snow Blower because it’s just the right size, it’s electric, and has LED headlights.
Our Favorite Snow Blower:
Snow Joe SJ627E 22-Inch 15-Amp Electric Snow Thrower w/Dual LED Lights
A generator may not be a frivolous raffle prize, but it’s a necessary item in the winter. Most people don’t already own one, so it would be a popular, attention getting item. You could also include a car emergency kit as a runner-up prize or in addition to the generator. Generators come in a large variety of styles and prices.
Our favorite is the A-iPower 2000-watt portable inverter generator. This in the mid-range price and good for use during a power outage. Plus, it’s quiet! And, it has free shipping, which is a good plus for such a large item. There are many generator selections with more options and higher watts, and higher or lower prices. Choose one that fits your needs best.
Our Favorite Generator:
A-iPower SUA2000iV Super Quiet 2000-Watt Portable Inverter Generator CARB/EPA
6. Amazon Echo Device
Echo devices, including the Show and Dot, are always a great choice! Everyone loves them and wants one of their own. There are many choices. We recommend choosing the newest edition of any Echo device. You can’t go wrong.
Our favorite pick is the Echo Show 5 because it is one the most popular raffle prizes at this time. Everyone will want a chance to win one of these!
Our Favorite Echo Device:
All New Echo Show 5 – Compact smart display with Alexa
7. Kindle E-Reader
The newest Kindle E-Reader would be a attention grabbing raffle prize! An e-reader is great for reading favorite books on a cold day or night. Lots of people have tablets, but most do not have an e-reader. E-readers are specifically designed for reading and are better for that purpose.
Our favorite pick is the new Kindle Paperwhite E-Reader because it is now thinner, waterproof, has twice the storage as older models, and now includes Audible! Also, because I own one and highly recommend it. 🙂
Our Favorite Kindle E-Reader:
Kindle Paperwhite – Now Waterproof with more than 2x the Storage – Includes Special Offers
8. Smart TV
A new Smart TV is always a safe and popular raffle prize idea. Not everyone has a Smart TV yet, and this would make a sought after raffle prize. People are staying in and watching their television more in the winter. And, who wouldn’t want a new TV? You can usually find great deals this time of year at local stores and on Amazon.
Our favorite pick is the TCL 55 inch 4K Smart LED Roku TV because, for one, it is an Amazon Best Seller, and also because it is LARGE enough to attract attention, yet affordable enough for a raffle prize. You could offer one TV or several, maybe in different sizes.
Note: As I write this (11/12/2019), the TCL 55 inch 4K Smart LED Roku TV is selling for 50% off, so act now and you will get a terrific deal and make more money on your raffle. I’m not sure how long the sale will last.
Our Favorite Smart TV:
TCL 55S425 55 inch 4K Smart LED Roku TV (2019)
If you’re having a raffle, you not only need the prize, you need raffle tickets or entry cards and a box or boxes to put them in. Depending on how your raffle is planned you may need several boxes and rolls of tickets. Don’t forget these important supplies. 🙂
