Review & Competition - Parcelgenie

We everything on our phones these days... talk to people, reply to emails and even online shopping. What about sending gifts directly to the person receiving it? I didn't even know there was an app for that but now there is.

Parcelgenie is a great idea. You pick a real little gift for a friend, you enter their mobile number and purchase the gift. Your friend is then sent a text message to let them know that you have purchased a gift for them. They then have to reply to the message, free of charge, with their name and delivery address. There present then arrives through there doorstep. You even get to earn rewards too.

When I was contacted by Parcelgenie asking if I wanted to review their service I had to give it a go. I downloaded the app which is free and couldn't wait to get started. The app is available on iphone, ipad and android. I decided to send myself something and to get something Mark. I chose the Relaxation bundle for myself and the Yankee sweets for Mark.

It was very easy and straight forward to both buy the gift for someone and also be on the receiving end. We ordered our gifts and sent a reply text with pour address at 2pm and received both parcels the next day!





 
They were both packaged well in small cardboard boxes. They also came wrapped in purple paper which was a nice touch, especially as they are meant for little gifts for people. I think a nice added touch would be if you could chose the colour of the wrapping that the gift came in but you can personalise the card it comes with. I purchased the gifts on the iPhone app and it was very easy and straight forward to use. I didn't have any trouble apart from personalising the cards. I didn't quite realize where that section was before I had completed the order.

 

 

The gifts themselves are pretty straight forward and mostly sweet/chocolate related. Mark loved his Yankee sweets gift. In my gift I received a flake, some bath salts and a small book. The book is full of relaxation tips?? And is a really cute idea.
 
Below I have a competition for two people to win 1 voucher code each to enable you to buy one gift from the Parcelgenie app for free :) Just complete the rafflecopter form for your chance to win.
