When Lindsay and I were putting together our baby registry and recent Christmas lists for Juniper we had several items that were relatively expensive. We figured that many people would not be able to afford those gifts on their own. Several of my family members self-assembled to pool their money and buy us one of those gifts.
Today I want to tell you about a service that is setting out to make group gift giving easier. Well I’ll just let them tell you, here is a wonderful post that Melissa from GiftStarter wrote just for you. And make sure you read to the end!
GiftStarter is a versatile, online application that allows families and friends to come together and afford better, more memorable gifts for the people they love—gifts, like some of the amazing products you’ve probably seen featured on Dadsigner!
Maybe while perusing Dadsigner, you’ve fallen in love with the Quinny Zapp Xtra stroller, the PacaPod diaper bag, or one of the handful of crazy awesome gadgets listed on Dadsigner’s holiday gift picks for dads, like the Apple TV or the AeroPress coffee maker.
And maybe you know exactly who you’d love to give one of these awesome, high-quality gifts to—but you just can’t afford to buy the gift by yourself.
Now, you don’t have to!
With GiftStarter, you can give any gift you dream of by inviting friends and family of the gift recipient to pitch in on the cost. Here’s how:
Hop on over to GiftStarter, and either peruse our enormous list of gift ideas and gift cards, and begin a DIY Gift Campaign using these items.
create a customized gifting experience (as many of our happy customers do) by contacting our Gift Concierge. Within 24 hours, we’ll set you up with the perfect Gift Campaign.
Whether you want to gift a long-lasting, durable stroller, a babymoon vacation, hard-to-find whiskey for a new dad, a food subscription service for new parents—literally anything—the Gift Concierge will create a Gift Campaign for you, the Giver, that you can then easily share on social media. Then, Contributors (the recipient’s family and friends) can begin pitching in on the cost of the gift by buying virtual “pieces” of it. It’s that simple!
Your Gift Campaign will look similar to this. Here, friends and family have purchased “pieces” of an Amazon gift card for their friend Dani’s birthday. Because of GiftStarter, Dani will be getting a $250 gift card, rather than a $10 or $20 gift card from one person. Memorable, and useful!
You’ll also notice the sweet birthday messages Dani’s friends have left behind as they’ve pitched in and bought pieces of the gift card. GiftStarter takes all those awesome messages, and creates a really special handmade card that gets shipped off with Dani’s gift!
Not only was the Giver of this gift able to work together with the recipient’s friends and family (from all over the country) to get her a better gift, the recipient is also going to be feeling a ton of love from her community.
This is why we love GiftStarter so much: we’ve created a platform that is turning your run-of-the-mill group-gift into a memorable, fun, visual experience. No more rushing around trying to collect pitch-ins using PayPal, or checks in the mail. With GiftStarter, you can get it all done in one place, give a better gift, and create a truly warm, memorable experience for someone really special to you.
The next time you see an amazing product on Dadsigner that you want to gift, use GiftStarter, and the Gift Concierge, and make it memorable!
