With online shopping becoming the norm since the Covid-19 pandemic, Giftano, an online gifting marketplace in Singapore has launched a new 360 online gifting e-shop experience, expanding its offerings to include a whole new array of physical gifts alongside its established gift cards selection.

Make your purchase with just a click and all items get sent over directly to the recipient speedily, some
even on the same day, a true life-saver for last minute shoppers like me. In my case, I ordered two boardgames for Asher last Thursday to have them delivered by this Monday, just in time before Christmas.

All gift items from Giftano come beautifully packaged and accompanied with your personal physical greeting card message:

Asher was really excited when he saw the nicely wrapped gifts and it adds to the festive cheers.

Next time you are shopping for a last minute gift that you need gift-wrapped and with a customised message, consider visiting from the comfort of your own home or anywhere you may be.

Giftano New Search Function

To ensure customers get the best online user experience in time for the Christmas period, Giftano has unveiled a slew of new elements such as the Giftano New Search Function, which has become more intuitive, enabling customers to pick a suitable gift, type out a custom gift card, and picking your mode of delivery. Gift-givers can now select everything from flowers, gift hampers, personalised accessories, jewellery, electronics, and get gifts like a Riedel “Bar” Whisky Gift Set for the whisky connoisseur, or a Travel Edition Scratch Map for friends and family who love to travel, on the Giftano Gifts platform.

Jesper Gustafsson, Founder & CEO of Giftano, says, “The new normal reaffirmed the huge demand for online gifting. Customers were routinely requesting that gifts be purchased online for friends and family, and have it prepared as a proper gift with all the trimmings, and then delivered as such. With this new e-shop, Giftano now provides this entire gifting flow, as a one-stop shop for all gifting needs.”

Online Gifting in the “New Normal”

A recent Giftano Gift Card survey found that 67% of the respondents will be buying more physical gifts online for the festive season 2020 compared to 2019. Additionally, 55% stated when purchasing physical gifts online they will have them shipped directly to the recipients.

The survey reinforced the main reasons why customers would want to shop for gifts online. Gift-givers were looking for a way to give a proper gift even when you are unable to meet the recipient in person, and the convenience that packaging, delivery and greeting cards are all taken care of. With Giftano Gifts, gift-givers can do just that and be reassured that their gifts are in safe hands.

In the “New Normal”, the demand for gift cards have also been increasing throughout 2020; 45% said they will buy more gift cards as festive 2020 gifts compared to previous year. The most popular gift cards to receive are Experiences, Fine Dining and Retail, and the appreciation of getting a gift card is at a high 8 out of 10.
