When GiftRocket originally began the contest, we had no idea the number of nominations or votes that would actually get. We let the contest run for 3 weeks now and finally closed it out.
In terms of the numbers, we received 30+ nominations, which we narrowed down to 20 candidates across 4 categories, where 1500 votes were placed total.
Winner: Great Arrivals. Classy and convenient at the same time, Great Arrivals provides a plethora of upscale gift baskets for any occasion.
Runner-up: Red Envelope. One of the most popular online companies that offers more than just gift baskets.
Winner: Laurel Mountain. They’ve been around since 1998 and are one of New England’s best.
