As we get into the business of the holiday season, Giftful’s new app takes the guesswork out of giving, making it a joyous time for the giver and receiver.
The phrase, “You think you know someone until it’s time to buy them a gift,” rings true every holiday season. The hustle and bustle of selecting the perfect gift in just the right size and color can overshadow all things holiday cheer.
That’s where the Giftful app comes in; fresh off of a brand-new launch, the app makes it even easier to take the guesswork out of giving.
Giftful founders, Cono and Hannah Onorato, felt the pain of every holiday shopper with good intentions, and developed the chance for givers and receivers to create the ultimate digital wish list.
We didn’t like that it wasn’t a surprise for our family. That’s truly the main reason we created Giftful, so we can have organized lists and be surprised.
“We had family members that would make Amazon lists,” says Hannah. “On Amazon, you can see when someone buys you a gift. We didn’t like that it wasn’t a surprise for our family. That’s truly the main reason we created Giftful, so we can have organized lists and be surprised.”
Users can create their wish list by adding a link to an item from any website. The Giftful app will pull all of the information that comes with the item from the price, the size, and the color.
Your friends and family can see what items you want, and claim them, so there are no duplicates.
“Your friends and family can see what items you want, and claim them, so there are no duplicates,” Hannah adds.
In true holiday fashion, the person who created the list won’t see which gifts were purchased for them, keeping the element of surprise in full swing for Christmas morning.
Givers and receivers are getting on board as Hannah and Cono, who launched Giftful in 2017, have seen lots of growth since this time last year.
“Last holiday season we probably had around 500 users, and we had 1,000 wish lists posted,” says Cono. “This time, we’ve grown to around 13,000 people, and we’re expecting thousands of wish lists this year.”
The app has expanded and can be used for birthdays, baby showers, and weddings.
Now, users can enjoy what’s truly important as they take advantage of all Giftful has to offer.
