Introducing: GiftPicker by Presently

👋 I’m Dalia, CEO of Presently and co-Creator of GiftPicker: the newest addition to Presently’s gifting ecosystem. Juuust in time for Black Friday & holiday shopping!

GiftPicker was a fun project spearheaded by our interns, taking a Buzzfeed-style approach to finding a great gift with an epic, curated database of gifts.

Why we built this

We’ve all received a bad gift (or ten) in the past, and therefore know how equally amazing and difficult it feels to find a good one 🥴 It takes *hours* to sift through the billion gift guides on the web to find gifts. You’d think someone’s built a good gift suggestor by now, but every database we tried was incredibly tacky… are people still buying monogrammed pens?

And so, GiftPicker was born 🌞

How GiftPicker works

Here are some of our favorite GiftPicker features!

✍️ Take a short quiz about the person you’re buying a gift for

🔮 In seconds, GiftPicker will unlock three gifts tailored to their interests (or more, if you want)

💵 Split the cost of the gift with friends through our integration with Presently, so that $$$ gift can become an epic surprise for your friend, family member, coworker, or mentor/teacher!

💬 Share the gift ideas with friends through easy sharing buttons (coming December 2021!) Whether to give a nudge for your own wishlist or to surprise someone else :)

🎉 And finally, you skip the weeks of frustration leading up to the holidays!

Give it a shot!

Check out GiftPicker and Presently today and happy gifting!

Drop a gift you’ll never forget below — good or bad. Bonus points if you tag who it’s from 😏
