Spread the Joy, Not Plastic. Only with E-Gift Cards

Gifters love to gift; the more impressive the gift, the bigger the box and then the ribbons and the rest of it. There are so many gifting occasions in a year – a horde of festivals, and then Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and Valentine Week – you name it. We feel obliged to honour each occasion with an appropriate gift, and the gift wrappings accumulate. Ever wondered what your gift recipients do with the wrapping, the boxes and the ribbons? They throw them away. Kilos of gift wrapping ends up in landfills around the world. Is there a way to prevent this? Yes, there is!

environmentally friendly gifts

Gift you can never go wrong with. Have you gifted yet?

Gift, gifting, e gift voucher, Woohoo, gift cards, gift vouchers, e gift cards

Gifting – one of the most rewarding experiences when the gift-giver and the recipient’s choices are in sync. But how often does that “sync” really happen? We’ve all been through instances when we’ve spent countless days looking up the net or visiting every possible store just to find a gift that would suit the taste of the recipient, only to fail miserably or to realize it was something he already possessed. We’ve also been on the other side of the fence, when we received a gift we valued only because of the sentiments behind it, though it still lies around somewhere in the house gathering dust because it never really did serve its purpose, nor could you bring yourself to send it to the “recycle” pile.

Definitely not the situation we’d want to be in again? Here’s where Woohoo App comes in. With all its personalized gifting features and the power of choice and flexibility it offers, it sure is a gift you can never go wrong with!

 What makes Woohoo the best gift?

The recipient of your gift can purchase anything of his choice from a host of online stores like Amazon, Flipkart, Myntra, Cleartrip, MakeMyTrip.
