"At," says Ms. Garber, "we provide consumer support and expert-written reviews of everything from cosmetics to clothing, baby items to car accessories, books and DVDs to hotel accommodation. All our staff writers are highly critical, and have high expectations of the items submitted for review, so if you are very confident of the quality of their goods and services, please feel free to forward any samples to us in a timely fashion, and we will undertake to incorporate them into our recommended Christmas gifts for 2007.

The site generally handles fulfillment, although it is also willing to provide winner-recipients, if the client prefers ( ran a contest for a Warner Bros. film, and their distribution center was in Maine or NH or somewhere, so the site simply let them handle fulfillment). Generally, these folks usually want to do deliveries, and as mentioned, the site-operators do not mind, either way.'s contests are generally limited to continental United States and Canada, although once in a blue moon, if the contest (and the item being spotlighted) merits worldwide attention, it will also promote it in Europe and/or Asia.

Even if some of participants cannot meet deadlines, remember: There is always Valentine's Day. And Mother's Day. And Father's Day.
