SURVEY

Thank you for taking the time to share your opinion and advice. Your input is going to be a huge help to me as I'm getting this project up and running.

Key differentiators of the service:

  1. On-Demand: Same day messenger delivery in NYC / next day FedEx nationwide (for shippable items)
  2. High-Touch Personalization: We'll write in the card, print a photo to deliver in a frame, curate the perfect gift options, and wrap your selections in beautifully styled gift-wrap to be delivered on your behalf
  3. Curated Selection: Higher quality than Amazon; pared down selection makes choosing a gift quick and easy (no choice overload)
