Nominate a Gift for the 2011 Giftee Awards!

Believe it or not, we’re about to send the December 2011 issue off to the printer. Which means all of us at Parents’ HQ have been busy decking the halls, trimming fake Christmas trees, spreading joy to the world, and rounding up the prettiest presents over the last few months – even though the rest of the world hasn’t even dreamed about holiday shopping yet.

But just when I thought the holidays were going to take a brief hiatus, I got a call from asking yours truly to be a guest judge for the 2011 Giftee Awards. Now, you should know that I am a rare type of holiday enthusiast that actually enjoys celebrating all things jolly for nearly half of the year every year. Picking out pretty presents – for readers from June to September then again for my family and friends in November and December – is a small slice of heaven for this product-maven. So am I completely over the top excited to be a judge for the this year’s Giftee Awards? Yes. Yes I am.

Here’s how it works: Visit between now and Friday, October 21st to nominate your favorite gift in a number of different categories, like Hottest Toy for Holiday, Best Gift under $25, Best Edible Gift, and Best Office Secret Santa Gift. Then on Monday, October 31st the Giftees judging panel will announce finalists in each category for you to vote on. The product with the most votes in each category will be declared the winner on Monday, November 28th. Oh, and there are two ways for you to win too: by simply nominating a gift you’re automatically entered to win a $500 shopping spree and if the gift you nominated wins you’re entered to win the grand prize of another $500 shopping spree.

So head over to to share all of the amazing gifts that have put a smile on your face or those of family and friends, and check out what other people love giving and getting around the holidays too. And be sure to check in the beginning of November for this year’s Holiday Gift Guide. We shopped for super stylish gifts for everyone on your list – and I mean everyone! – so you don’t have to!
