Gift Matcher

It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Gevalia coffee. I’ve been lucky enough to do a review of their products before, and I’ve been a long time customer and fan. So when I was contacted to do a review of the super cool Gevalia Gift Matcher, I jumped at the chance!

We all ask the question at least once during the holiday season…”What am I going to get X for Christmas?” Okay, not X, but that hard-to-buy-for person. The Gevalia Gift Matcher is a very cool Facebook application that will search the profiles of the people that you like and then suggest gift ideas from them based on information in their profile! For example, it might use a friend’s birthday and today’s horoscope and suggest one of Gevalia’s Spa Day Baskets.

I first tried finding a gift for myself. Of course. Because it was the first option! The Gevalia Gift Matcher suggested the Classic Coffee Basket because I don’t have enough information in my Facebook profile for the Gift Matcher to suggest anything more exciting! It told me to fill in more information on my profile and try again.

Then I tried to find a gift for my friend Tonya from Letters for Lucas. The Gift Matcher suggested Seasonal Flavor Gift Box for her. Tonya, would you like that?

Remember, this is all in good fun and meant to be a reminder that Gevalia is a perfect holiday gift to give.

If you’d like to try it yourself, check it out on Facebook by using the Gevalia Gift Matcher. If you spend over $50, you’ll save 10% and get free shipping! Woo hoo!

And I’m so excited to give you a chance to win one of the super cool gifts that the Gevalia Gift Matcher might show you if you use it!

The Springform Bake Set with Royal Vinter (which I LOVE) and Royal Vinter Spice Coffee! If you win, you’ll recieve:
-5 piece Springform bake set
-3 non-stick pans
-Stainless steel whisk
-Silicone oven mit
-2 boxes of Royal Vinter
-2 boxes of Royal Vinter Spice

It’s a perfect prize for anybody that bakes! I’m jealous that I don’t get one myself! All you have to do is leave a comment for your chance to win!

And for additional chances to win, you can:

  42. Cool idea. Certainly helps for those hard to shop for coffee lovers.

    I clicked on the Seasonal Flavor Gift Box link and the site/url was no longer available, but I don't like coffee, so not the best match for me. :/
