Hello people. The temperature in Pune is more than 40 degrees and I don’t feel like going out in the morning because my skin literally starts burning the moment I step out of my house. But I have to step out anyway because WORK!! Stuck between work pressure and surprising the guy, I decided to order something for him online. While browsing, I came across this online gifting website called igp.com. I found the website really cool.
About: On researching further I got to know that IGP.com is one of India’s largest online gifts store founded in 2001, specializing in gifts for all ages and occasions. It is one of the oldest, largest and most experienced online gifting company in India which ships orders to 150+ countries (including USA, UK, Australia, Canada etc) and 7,000+ pin codes in India.
My Experience: The website gives option to choose gifts by category like flowers, personalized gifts, cakes, hampers etc along with option to gift by occasions like birthdays, anniversaries, mothers day gifts or by recipients like gits for mom, gifts for dad, gifts for teens etc which makes it easier to filter and shortlist products as per your preference. The website has various gifting options for different budgets. Another wonderful feature of IGP is that you can buy gifts according to people’s personality like gifts for geek teens or gits for romantic men.
Since there was no special reason or occasion for me to gift, I went ahead to explore the gourmets section which again had sub-categories. I picked up a combo hamper of Danish Butter Cookies with Blueberry Intense Lindt Bar.
I picked up another gift while browsing their online gift store, which was a Happy Love Figurative Couple. The combo hamper reached next day of placing the order, the packing was good but what disappointed me was that the cookies were almost nearing their expiry date and didn’t tasted too well. The chocolate however was good. The showpiece came two days later and to my surprise I found the size much bigger than my expectation and oh my! the couple looked so cute.
I also added a personal note which did not got delivered with any of the gifts, sadly. My guy was definitely happy with this sudden surprise gifts. It was overall a pleasant experience and with the upcoming occasions this year, I am definitely going to purchase from them again.
Pros: 1. Easy to use website
2. Lots of gifting categories to choose from
3. Gift for every budget
4. Fast delivery
Cons: 1. Edible items must be checked for expiry dates
2. More care must be taken to add little details like personalized notes, special requests (if any).
Final Verdict:I’ll recommend everyone to try igp.com for gifting your near and dear ones for any occasion.
