Announcing the Best Gift Baskets of 2011

Posted 14 November 2011 by

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.
