Happy Fall everyone! Today marks the first day of Autumn, what are you most looking forward to this season? The Gifts team is already busy with Halloween preparations, and soon to be knee-deep in Halloween candy. In case you missed it, we had some fun updates this week.

We shared our favorite stylish gifts for the Hostess in the press, AND most importantly, we’re giving away one of the hottest toys of the year, the new LeapPad Learning Tablet by Leapfog, so be sure to enter soon. Speaking of “winning”, the Giftee Awards are still going strong. Nominate your favorite gift of 2011 and be entered to win a $500 shopping spree. Not a bad start to your holiday season.

In the meantime, have a great weekend and enjoy some fun links we’ve been loving lately. Stay tuned next week for more Autumn-inspired tips and gifts and a sneak peak of the top toys for Christmas.
