My boyfriend claims with confidence that he’s an expert when it comes to gift-giving. Whether it is Valentine’s Day, birthday, Christmas, anniversary, or other celebration, he always has a huge variety of ideas for gifts that are sure to impress. I’m quite the opposite and I know I’m not alone. 🙂

Many people have difficulties in choosing the best present for their families and/or special someone. Now that Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, the panic of creating the most romantic day has set in. For sure, malls get crowded especially during weekends since many of us are already rushing to shop for our loved ones.

Enter Gifted.PH—a simple and easy way of giving gift cards online. Its concept was made out of the desire to help people to be more thoughtful despite the chaos of preparing for V-Day or for any other occasion or reason.

Here are five cool things about Gifted.PH that you should know:

1. Gifted.PH is the first of its kind in the Philippine market.

Online commerce is booming. Gifted.PH rides on the bandwagon and keeps up with the trends by establishing its presence online as a gift certificate website. This is where you can send personalized gift ceritificates to anyone in a matter of minutes.

2. Gifted.PH allows personalization.

Each gift ceritificate is sent with a greeting card and a recommended gift item. This eliminates the perception of gift ceritificates being an impersonal gift, thus making it more fun and acceptable to receive.

3. Buying gift certificates from Gifted.PH is pretty easy.

To buy a gift certificate, simply choose a brand and personalize the gift by selecting a greeting card, typing in your message, and choosing a recommended gift item. Pay using Paypal, credit card or bank transfer. Done!

To redeem a gift certificate voucher, print out the voucher and present it to the merchant’s customer service. Read the terms and conditions before redeeming. Start shopping while the merchant validates the gift certificate.

4. The gift certificates can be used as payment at different retail stores and brands and also at a number of prestigious restaurants in the Philippines.

Gifted.PH is pleased to launch with over 80 of the country’s well-loved brands, namely: Bench, Fully Booked, and Shangri-La Makati Circles Events Cafe. For dining choices, try Saboten, Museum Cafe, Gino’s Brick Oven Pizza, and Alba Restaurante Espanñol.

At Gifted.PH, you can now give gifts from a designer dress by Rosanna Ocampo, Maureen Disini, Charina Sarte, and Tan-Gan, jewelry by Cura V, a travel adventure experience from Unchartered Philippines, and even a short cooking course from Enderun Colleges. For those who are into fitness, GCs can also be used at Benel Archery or Bliss Yoga.

5. You can send gift cards for money.

With Gifted.PH, sending gifts becomes flexible. It’s not only limited to gift certificates; depositing money to bank account is also made possible. If you have a friend or special someone who’s overseas and you want to stay in touch, instead of wiring money or missing important milestones together, you can send send a gift card and send money directly.

The amount is deposited into your recipient’s bank account for them to buy any gift of their choice. Whether it’s a new smart phone of any brand for your spouse, the latest Playstation game for your son, a cocktail dress for your sister, tuition allowance for your sibling, or just simply pocket money for your best friend’s upcoming vacation, you can be 100% sure that they will love you for the practical gift.
