How this Company Disrupted Holiday Shopping with Tech
Thank you GiftNow for sponsoring this post and disrupting holiday shopping! If you’re running out of ideas on what to give your on-the-go tech entrepreneur friend, check out the Gift Guide that I’ve compiled!
Holiday shopping is wonderful and daunting at the same time. You get to surprise your loved ones with some thoughtful gifts. But, it can also become a nightmare if you don’t know their size or favourite colour. And what if you want to surprise them, but they live far away and you need to get their shipping address?
I don’t know about you, but this season is my busiest with work. I can barely find time to shop already. All that stress makes me dread the process. Finally, I’ll be honest with you, I’m not good at generating gift ideas. I always worry that this isn’t the right item for this person, but I can’t come up with anything else…

Luckily, technology is here to save us and it’s finally time for this process to be disrupted! If you have recognised parts of yourself in the previous paragraphs, you’re definitely going to enjoy GiftNow. GiftNow has found a way to remove all of the stress of holiday shopping mentioned above.
What if you could send a gift to your loved one and allow them to select the colour, size and enter the shipping address? Check! And if they don’t like it? They can exchange it for something that they do!
Here’s how it works! You can look for gifts through the GiftNow platform or their connected retailers (look for the GiftNow button). When you’re checking out, select a virtual card and enter the recipient’s information. You can send them a link via email, text, Facebook messenger or just copy it yourself. When they receive it, they will be able to accept their gift, the right gift! And if the recipient already has this item or would prefer something else, they can exchange their gift if they’d like.
This is what checkout looks like on GiftNow!
This makes the whole process frictionless and less stressful for both parties: you, who can forget about panic attacks whether something is the right size and the recipient who doesn’t have to pretend that they love it, while they know they will never wear/use this thing. Win/win situation if you ask me!
I love technology for exactly this, disrupting industries and processes to make our lives easier!
So if you still have some last-minute holiday shopping to do, make sure you give GiftNow a try. In fact, it’s the perfect way to shop for last-minute gifts, because the present arrives first virtually – which means that you never have to worry about shipping delays!
If you’re stuck on what kind of gift you’d like to give your constantly travelling tech entrepreneur friends, I have created a Gift Guide on GiftNow to make it easier for you! I combined all of the items I use, being one myself and the items I yet have to invest into (and wish somebody would get for me – wink wink ?).
Happy Holidays everyone, may this wonderful season be stress-free for you ✨
