Hello Gifters! It’s been another busy week here, but a good kind of busy. We welcomed another addition to our judges panel for the Giftee Awards. What’s that you say? Well we haven’t been able to shut-up about it, but time is running out to nominate your favorite gift for 2011 and be entered to win $500. Yeah, I thought that might get your attention.

In other news, we got a sneak peek of all the new Fall book releases from Simon & Schuster for everyone on your list, so stay tuned as we’ll be sharing our favorites on Giftrap. And even though this endless summer weather keeps going (you won’t hear us complaining) we’re still excited for all the fun Fall activities; namely, s’mores making (as seen above).

So enjoy your weekend, and check out a few things you may have missed this week.
