At last, the real gift can finally be in the art of giving. Giftbar (http://www.giftbar.com) -is transforming the gift card industry and bringing with it a unique and personalized experience for consumers, the perfectly packaged platform for instant digital gift card giving. Giftbar recently launched new animated card designs along with a new video feature, expanding customization even further by allowing customers to record a personal video and add it to their digital gift cards.
With the gift card industry at an all-time high—gift cards continue to be the #1 most requested holiday gift every year—Giftbar is making a serious splash, revolutionizing traditional gift card giving. “We definitely noticed a void in the current gift card marketplaces that exist today, consumers want more choices and that includes options other than your typical big box retailers” says Giftbar’s co-founder, Kara Kaplan.
With an emphasis on upscale, local retailers, Giftbar is available in over 20 of the hippest cities bringing over 1,000 gift-worthy boutiques, services and restaurants right to users’ fingertips and delivers to recipients in a fresh, friendly and convenient format. Giftbar offers consumers the ability to give someone special more than just a gift, but an actual experience. From high-end retailers like Kirna Zabete, Tibi and Trunk Club to upscale fitness studios, spas and the hottest salons and beyond, Giftbar offers gifts for everyone.
Setting itself apart from other online gifting services, Giftbar enhances the overall experience for both the gift giver and the recipient with ultra-personalized features, including innovative search tools (users can search by neighborhood and recipient) and handy instant delivery options (gift cards can be sent via text, email, print-at-home or standard mail). Users can even schedule delivery for a future date, making gift giving more convenient than ever. With packaging that gets personal, Giftbar offers consumers a variety of occasion-appropriate virtual wrapping papers and the option to include a custom message, along with a photo or personal video, ensuring each gift’s arrival is unique, memorable and on time. Giftbar also offers a universal gift card, the “Giftbar of Choice”, for even the hardest to shop for, allowing the recipient to shop at any of Giftbar’s 1,000+ merchants nationwide.
Currently, Giftbar is available in 24 cities, offering consumers from all over the chance to gift locally in each market. Giftbar plans to continue to roll out its unique concept to other exciting cities over the course of next year.
Launched in 2012, Giftbar transforms gift card giving into an elevated experience for both user and recipient. Offering consumers local options from retail services to spas and salons, Giftbar enhances the traditional gift card by bringing users the ability to gift in a convenient and creative way, from instant digital delivery to virtual personalization features.
