Have you ever heard of the Giftee Awards? Some of my readers may have. If not you will get to know more about them now.
The Giftee Awards started last year on the website Gifts.com. I’m sure if you’ve ever Googled gift ideas you found your way to Gifts.com. Personally when I have Googled “gifts for girls”, “gifts for men”, “gifts for teenage boys” I have seen Gifts.com come up as the #1 site in almost all the searches I have done. That is why Gifts.com is your number one source for gifts and gift ideas for everyone on your shopping list, not only during the holidays but year round too.
The Giftee Awards is looking for THE BEST gift ideas in 10 different categories;
- Best Gift for Him

- Best Gift for the Host
- Most Unusual Gift
- Best Gift for Baby
In addition, one lucky person is going to win a $1,000 holiday shopping spree and another person will win an iPad 2. All you have to do to enter is nominate the best gifts you can purchase online. Each nomination gets you one entry into the contest for either the shopping spree or iPad 2. You can get a maximum of 10 entries, however you can nominate as many gifts as you want. Although anyone world wide can nominate a gift, only residents of the US are eligible to win the shopping spree or iPad 2.

It’s super easy to nominate a gift. Simply find your favorite gift idea for any of the above listed categories and enter it in the easy nomination form. It must be a gift that you can purchase online. You can also share your nomination using the simple share buttons with friends and family on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest for added chances to win.
The more nominations a gift gets the better chance it has of being selected as a finalist my a panel of judges. After the judges determine the Top 10 gifts for each category you get to vote for the winner. The winners receiving bragging rights and a special award they can add to their packaging.

The site also offers consumers a Personality Profiler where gift seekers answer a few fun questions about who they’re shopping for to reveal customized gift ideas, perfectly tailored to their personality. That is a cool feature. I’ve already played around with it and found some gift ideas for my husband.
