SmartGift is an engagement platform that helps corporations create deeper connections. For businesses, like large corporations to start-ups, we provide you the best way to network with sales prospects, build employee engagement and retention through team building and value loyal clients with personalized customer appreciation gifts. But we also understand the importance for sustainable gifting, which is why we provide our online gifting solution to retailers to offer to their customers. Now, every product has the potential to be the best sustainable, high quality gift.

It works by always giving recipients the power to decide and browse beautifully curated product catalogs for their desired gift idea inspiration. There, they can discover new possibilities and own their preferences.

Anyone who is looking to give the perfect gift can use SmartGift. We want everyone to feel empowered to make their gift perfect, without relying on giving something as impersonal as a gift card. We know that there are many types of gifts: gifts between family and friends, gifts between colleagues and employees, gifts that say I appreciate the things you do, gifts to help deepen a relationship, and so many more. That's why we've made it easy to Send With SmartGift—you pick an item or price range that you'd like to spend, digitally wrap and deliver your choice to your recipient or recipients with SmartGift, and they can unwrap and decide their preferred size, color, or other gift options and pick where they'd prefer to have the gift delivered.

We understand that this new type of personalized, empowered gifting option is new for a lot of people, that’s why it’s our mission to make things as simple and easy as possible. Here we’d like to answer some of your most asked questions:

So how does SmartGift make gifting easier?

We help you send gifts instantly and easily. If your selection was not quite right, recipients can choose to exchange the gift for an item of equal or lesser value. Once they confirm their selection and provide their preferred shipping information, we send you a checkout link to complete the purchase, and, once paid, we ensure that the gift is delivered.
