Gift Gather is an online platform tap into your bucket-list.


CrowdFundBeat News Wire, Gift Gather is an online platform where people can ask friends and family to contribute towards one big dream gift for whatever they might be celebrating: birthday, wedding, graduation, Christmas, etc. With Gift Gather, your friends and family can all pitch in for one big DREAM gift. It takes the pressure off of them to find you the perfect gift and it allows you to tap into your bucket-list.

Gift Gather is designed to best represent the personality of the person asking for their gift. No cheesy templates to choose from, no upselling, just a personal message from the giftee and ultimately a personal experience for gift giver.

Gift Gather understands that an important aspect of the gift giving process is also giving thanks. All gifts received are tracked and placed in a Thank You page with all the information necessary to send some old fashioned hand-written thank you notes.

Having soft launched last January in the wedding space, Gift Gather has helped facilitate some amazing wedding gifts:  an African safari, cash to help fund a start-up, and trekking in Asia.

With the wedding space in tow, Gift Gather has begun to focus on birthday, holiday, and graduation gifts. Parents who might be tired of their kids fighting over toys, or spending money on toys that their kids play with for 5 minutes and then forget about, can set up a summer camp fund, an education fund, or whatever they want and steer all of the aunts and uncles and grandparents to chip in.

What separates Gift Gather from other sites is the customers are encouraged to focus on the meaning behind the gift – building a new home or business together, creating new memories on a new adventure, or just being present and surrounded by the people you love most at your wedding.

Gift giving is a currency for relationships.  Gifts are supposed to say, “I love you”, “You mean the world to me”, “Congratulations, I am so proud of you”.   When a gift is given successfully, there is a physical reaction that happens – you get an emotional high. Gift giving should be easy and meaningful.
