Menlo Park, CA (PRWEB) February 06, 2013
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, local gift-giving service, Yiftee, is launching Secret Admirer Yiftee gifts, which appeal to a wide audience. Shy, secretive or simply playful people now have a way to delight the target of their affection with a thoughtful gift, delivered anonymously via email or mobile phone. The recipients can participate in a game in which clues about their Secret Admirer’s identity are revealed until the gift itself is unlocked on Valentine’s Day. Recipients have 28 days to redeem their gift at local merchants, at which time the Admirer’s identity is revealed, if it hasn’t already been guessed.
Yiftee has partnered with Skout, a social mobile app to meet new people, to get the word out about Secret Admirer Yiftee gifts and spread the Yiftee love. “Yiftee is bringing the mystery and fun of Valentine’s Day into the digital age,” said Portia Kersten, CFO of Skout, “There’s no better or more fun way of telling someone you care about them than sending a Secret Admirer gift on Valentine’s Day.”
Yiftee has also partnered with GroupVine, a company that's reinventing email to be more interactive and engaging for thousands of communities of parents, teachers, kids, congregations, small businesses and other community groups. “Our audience will love this! We see parents giving Secret Admirer Yiftees to everyone from their kids, to their kid's teachers, to grandparents, from 5 to 105 years old!” said Dave Beyer, CEO of GroupVine. “Who doesn’t love having a Secret Admirer, even if it’s your Mom!”
