BOSTON, Dec. 7, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Gopher Ideas simplifies your holiday shopping with the launch of its Beta web application today. Just as users recommend and rate restaurants, hotels, and fashion online, they suggest and rate gift ideas on www.gopherideas.com. Through social gift recommendations, gift shoppers get the most credible and creative gift ideas directly from gift-givers and gift-receivers themselves.
"We have been really pleased with adoption and how people have been using the website in our closed Alpha," said Gopher Ideas CEO, Jamie Alders. "Now we are ready to release it to the world. We want to make Christmas 2010 the easiest year to find great gifts."
How does it work? Gopher Ideas has developed an innovative content management system in which gift ideas are tagged to describe who will love a particular gift and for which occasion. People who agree with a tag vote it up. People who disagree vote it down. The result: gift ideas ranked by person, interest, and occasion.
Based upon feedback from its private Alpha, Gopher Ideas is introducing an updated design with new features, including improved usability, simplified gift recommendation tool, and a "rate gift ideas" game in which players vote "yes" or "no" to matches between gift ideas and occasions, people, and interests.
