Giftsplosion 2012 was the Christmas gift giving event of 2012. Players were awarded several different gifts for doing different things within ROBLOX. Most of these gifts had something to do with trying out one of ROBLOX's new features 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. A total of nine gifts were handed out during the event. All of the gifts offered during the Giftsplosion 2012 could be purchased for Robux for a limited time before they were opened.

Criticism surrounding gifts

Most felt that the gifts were too difficult to obtain by NBCers, seeing that most of the gifts required you to use BC-only features.  The gifts later went on sale, leading to more criticism.  Many believed that the gifts' prices were too much too high for most NBCers to afford.

Criticism also 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.

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."
