My best friend's little boy turned one recently, and like a dutiful friend, I got him a pricey Lego set that he could happily play with and enjoy. Only weeks after the party, on a casual discussion with my friend, I realised that he had got three sets of the same Lego all in the same party! Handing over an envelope with a Rs 501/ 1001/2001 is so out of the league and definitely not the right thing you would want to gift a little kid. And this was frankly another reason I dreaded throwing a birthday party for my daughter last week. Right from dresses to toys and nursery items, there are so many duplicates in all our houses, that we frankly don't know how to react the next time we get a gift! Fret no more! We at KSP, have found the right solution to bid bye to all your gifting troubles! Say hi to Giftistree!
What is Giftistree
Giftistree is a virtual platform connecting 'gifters' and' giftees'. It combines the ease of online shopping with the novel idea of gift registry. Their tagline summarises what they do- Smart Gifting, Happy People!
The Story Behind Giftistree
When Bhavna Kanoria, an interior designer by passion and profession and a mom, realised how much she fell short of space in her apartment in Mumbai that was loaded with gifts waiting to be 'regifted', she came upon the idea of Giftistree in 2014.
Inspired to do something different and break the shackles, Bhavna decided to try the idea of a gift registry on a personal level first. She planned a gift registry and shared the list with her guests for her daughter's 2nd birthday. The positive response from the guests on how happy they felt on gifting something useful and the satisfaction from her end as well, set the ball rolling for Giftistree to take a bigger form.
How To Order?
The process is pretty simple. You would have to log on to giftistree.com and make a registry/wishlist of gifts you wish to receive. You can then go ahead and add gifts from the gifting partners that includes some big names such as Amazon, Flipkart, Snapdeal, Hopscotch and Pepperfry. You could then share your wishlist with your guests who can place the order. The gifts are then shipped to your location within 5-7 working days. Shipping is free for orders more than Rs. 2000.
Creating the wishlist is free. Giftistree offers the option of buying gifts for baby showers, weddings, housewarmings and for kids' birthdays. The wide range of products for the parenting space include subscription boxes, cloth diapers, apparels for kids, hair accessories, bolster covers, wall stickers and even baby and maternity photo shoots, among others.
