As with all things on the Internet, it was only a matter of time before gift-giving became a social activity, too. That’s where GiftHit comes in. This revolutionary new website allows you to browse a wide variety of gifts and experiences that are local to your recipient; once you find the perfect gift, you can personalize your pick and send an eGift automatically to your recipient’s Facebook account or email address – even via text.
Since the website is relatively new, there are only a few cities available to choose from: New York, Boston, Portland, San Francisco, Syracuse and Washington, D.C. However, it’s become such a popular concept that there’s no doubt in my mind that they will eventually expand and include more cities if the demand is there.
I think the concept is pretty awesome. You choose from a variety of gifts from hand-picked local merchants, instantly send it to your recipient and are guaranteed to receive a lot of thank-you’s after the fact. Not only is this more personalized than a generic gift card, but it’s great for sending instant gifts long-distance or last minute. With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, it’s the perfect way to show someone you care.
I also love the wide range of gifts and prices available. Prices range from $1.38 to $999 and the gifts can include everything from spa gift certificates, gourmet coffee, restaurant deals and lots more.
GiftHit also offers a very user-friendly interface, which I can appreciate. Simply choose the city you want, and a page of all of the gifts available in that area pop up. Click on the one you want, make your additional selections and then input your recipient’s information and check out. It really is that simple.
Whether you need a last-minute Valentine’s Day gift or are looking for a unique and personalized gift for any occasion, check Out GiftHit.com – I’m a fan, and I think you will be too!
