GourmetGiftBaskets.com Launches National “15 & Me Selfie Search” Online Gifting Company Kicks Off 15th Birthday Countdown, Offering Consumers 17 Ways To Win

One of the top U.S. online gifting companies is celebrating its first 15 years of business in a fun, unique way, shining the spotlight on the countless customers who have contributed to this major milestone. At 11:15 a.m. (ET)today, “GourmetGiftBaskets.com‘s 15 & Me Selfie Search” will launch, offering more than $2,000 in prizes.
The $22 million ecommerce company, which provides hundreds of upscale gourmet gifting options, will turn 15 on November 15th. The selfie search invites everyone to join the countdown to this big birthday by posting selfies with the number 15 in them on the company’s Facebook or Instagram pages. All posts must be family-friendly and should contain the hashtag #GGBTurns15.
The “15” can appear on nearly anything — a cake, sign, house, T-shirt, or even printed on paper. Contestants can post as many different shots as they’d like, as well, since all posts count. All entrants will vie for one of 17 exciting prizes.
The contestant with the most creative entry will win first prize – a whopping $1,500 worth of upscale goodies! These could include elaborate gourmet baskets, towers, cookie cakes, and many more WOW-inspiring gifts.
The entrant with the highest number of posts will win second prize — a three-month membership in the Monthly Cheesecake Club, receiving a different cheesecake flavor each month.
Finally, 15 third-place winners will be chosen randomly to receive one-gallon tins of handcrafted gourmet popcorn, since GourmetGiftBaskets.com offers nearly 100 popcorn flavors from sweet to savory.
“As a company that’s all about life’s celebrations, we wanted to approach this major milestone by offering consumers something fun, different and rewarding,” said Vice President of Sales and Marketing Jason Bergeron. “We can’t wait to see all of the selfies from our many loyal customers – and future ones, too.”
The search runs until 11:15 p.m. (ET) on November 15th. Soon afterward, winners will be announced and prizes will be distributed.
To enter, go to the special contest page, or follow instructions on the GourmetGiftBaskets.com Facebook or Instagram pages. Updates will be available on the contest page and social media channels as the selfie search gains national momentum.

Stewie is Pet of the Week!

Stewie, September 21 Pet of the Week

What begins with s? Well…shih tzu mix, soft, serious expression, super-sweet (that’s two s’s!)—and Stewie, who’s all those things. Stewie’s about 9 years old and has a mellow disposition. He’d make a lovely lapdog as well as a possible companion for another dog—he appears to get along quite well with other dogs. Meet Stewie on the shelter side of the Companion Animal Village at 7700 East Spring St., (562) 570-PETS. Ask for ID#A596221.
