Giftsplosion 2012 was the Christmas gift giving event of 2012. Over the course of nine days, the Roblox administrators released nine gift boxes into the avatar shop. Gifts were rewarded to those who met the requirements hidden within the riddles provided. Once an obtaining period has ended, the gift box was put on sale with a timer for a set amount of Robux based around the difficulty of the requirement. After the gift box went off sale, it opened and granted the owners a new item in their inventory.

This giftsplosion involved the use of features which were introduced in 2012. Some examples would be using The Trade System, selling gamepasses and gear at one's place, and having a video thumbnail image in a gameslot.

More information on this year's Giftsplosion can be found in this blog post.

Criticism surrounding gifts

Criticism came after BrightEyes denied rumors of the Razzle Dazzle Hollywood Star Gift being rewarded to those who uploaded a video thumbnail to their game. After the gift was finally handed out, people attacked BrightEyes saying she had lied to them [2]

Many felt that there were not as many gifts that there could have been. There were 9 this year, 13 last year, and it appears that there are two gifts that were not made that are shown in the picture. BrightEyes says; "Maybe next year."
