BANGALORE, March 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Giving a gift that's cherished can be a challenge. Whether you're unsure of your loved one's sense of taste, style or just get flummoxed at the idea of giving gifts, technology can help. Giftingnation is a website designed to make gift-giving an experience to be enjoyed by both the giver and the receiver.
The website is stunning, well-designed with easy navigation. The images are high-quality and the pages are uncluttered. CNBC Awaaz featured them as an upcoming startup in the gifting space and also was published in Intuit's SMB blog.
Giftingnation for the first time in India launched "Dial a gift", a gifting hotline 080-68000068 where customers can call to know any gift ideas or suggestions and place an order. You can become a member on the phone itself. This service offers a personalized experience for the user as it is helping him choose the right gift. The company is also working on their technological discovery and recommendation platform due to launch end of next quarter.
At a recent interview, Srinivas Mothey, Co-founder of Giftingnation, said, "We are here to improvise and make the gift-giving process easy and delightful surrounded by great service and experience that is beautifully presented with an element of surprise."
Giftingnation takes pride in the gifts that are available on its website - from edible gifts (cake, cupcakes), flowers & chocolates, collectibles (paintings, quirky gifts) to exclusive collections like Harley Davidson motorbike replicas and more. "We try to find gifts that you and the person you're giving to will find exceptional. Our job is to help you discover some beautiful products you just don't find in mainstream retail, create an experience around a set of those products," said Srinivas.
How it works:
- You can choose a gift by occasion, recipient or even thought (e.g. I miss you, Congrats, etc.)
- Choose from a wide range, schedule a date and personalize (wrap, messages or add-ons like greeting cards)
- Add element of surprises (write a handwritten poem or color of the wraps)
- We deliver it to home, office or hotel.
Srinivas said that their typical customer is in the mid-20s to mid-50s. Gift givers are almost equally male and female. "It's interesting because it shows that men find Giftingnation a great place to shop," he added.
Gifts can be sent anywhere within India. Currently edible gifts can only be delivered to Hyderabad and Bangalore but the company plans to expand to other cities like Pune, Ahmedabad, and Delhi NCR & Mumbai in the next 6 to 8 months.
Giftingnation is an agile start-up creating a niche in the underserved gifting space. Thriving on experience, the company is trying to make the process of discovering and giving gifts a hassle free process.
Headquartered in Bangalore, Giftingnation was founded by Srinivas Mothey & Swetha Mothey in December 2012. It is armed with a superb team of 4 bringing to the table a combined experience of more than 25 years across marketing, sales, technology and operations.
