Experience GiftGram

Hi Cleveland and Cheers to Friday!

Have you started to shop for those special holiday gifts yet? I’m sure a handful of you have purchased some of this years special-somethings online; whether over the Thanksgiving weekend, Cyber Monday or from any of this week’s extra special sales we are crossing those gifts off our lists.

A few weeks ago, I had a wonderful experience when trying out the latest online, patent-pending, personalized greeting app called GiftGram. Launched by a team of Cleveland, techie entrepreneurs this site truly has changed the game when it comes to sending any special gift-worthy package while notifying the recipient a gift has been delivered to them.

As many of you may realize my out-of-town parents have been coming to visit me more as of late…well not me, but the grandson to be exact. I can’t tell you how thankful I am when they are here offering additional sets of hands to help out and keep the little guy entertained, fed and so forth. The last time my Mom came to visit we had all intensions of swinging by Crocker Park to pick up a new pair of flats for her. While we never made it out there, the sassy leopard flats made a great “Thank You” gift…enter the site GiftGram.

There is no charge to use GiftGram to send a message along with all of your gifts. All you need is your gift recipients email and your package tracking number, simple as that. Film a greeting on your cell phone or on your computers webcam, upload it to the site and when your gift is delivered the recipient immediately receives and email to notify them of the gift and the video message.

My own personal tiny glitch was getting my Mom to check her email around the same time I knew the gift was delivered…but we aren’t talking about someone who checks her email very often…it’s true. Sorry Mom. :)

Don’t love those gift messages that get printed on the shipping labels of your loved ones packages? This new web greeting truly is a game changer…time to start making a little video for  everyone on your list.

Needless to say I WILL be using this new app more as I start my holiday shopping (yes, I am a little behind this year). I’m telling you, making little videos whether of yourself, your kids, you adorable pets or get creative…your gift recipient will thank you!
