Unlocking Global Connections: The Power of Giftsenda’s Corporate Gifting Platform

In your own words, what does your company do?

The Giftsenda corporate gifting platform enables businesses to build relationships with prospects and foster relationships with existing clients & employees in over 200 countries globally through high-quality gift experiences. We often provide services to Sales, Marketing, Customer Experience, and Human Resources professionals. The team boasts 20 years of international gift delivery experience, enabling us to provide our customers with world-class service. 

The platform enables users to simply select gifts and the delivery method, provide personalization details and pay. We handle all the logistics of gifting – making sending gifts internationally as easy as a few clicks. Thanks to our fully stocked Gift Catalog, you can choose from 1000s of locally sourced gifts: gourmet snack packs, SWAG kits, wine sets, eGift cards, and much more. 

We believe that recipients should have a personalized experience when it comes to receiving a gift, and that is why we have created a gift collection feature that allows recipients to choose their own gift based on a pre-curated list and their location. Companies can also use automated gift experiences such as gift links or email gift invites to send gifts with minimal details and increase acceptance rates. What’s more, a single gift campaign can be used to deliver gifts across various countries to multiple recipients.
