Don’t have time to roam around malls or go to shops, but need to buy the gift and get it delivered, then this portal has the solutions
Sometimes you are in the mood to shop and sometimes you are shopping because you need to send a gift to someone. Sometimes you want to deliver but can’t and sometimes you might be travelling but need to send that gift urgently. Sometimes things are just a way of saying ‘hello, I remember you’. During one of these moments, I discovered igp.com. The site came as a surprise, for it delivered across the world.
The site offers perosnalised services across occasions. It delivers across countries and cities. It has over 200 products. This sounded too good to be true. But it was. I browsed through the categories and found gifts by recipients and occasions– there are gifts for homemakers, brothers, sisters, mothers, friends, girlfriends and boyfriends, name it and you can find it.
As to the kind of gifts that you find here: flowers & cakes, personalised gifts, home & living, toys & games, chocolates, teddy bear, jewellery, Indian sweets. So which was a vast variety. There are gifts under Rs 999 too and this section attractive as it is pocket-friendly site. There are best-selling gifts too. So, for the hurried and the worried, this section is handy.
Going by the different occasions, I found all the usual occasions that we end up going for gifts such as Diwali, Christmas, New Year, Valentine’s Day, Rakhi, Bhaidooj. And there are some occasions which have been coming up globally in the 21st century such as Friendship Day, Father’s Day and more.
Spending a little time, I found many interesting gifting options such as mugs, cushion covers, accessories, photo frames and old collectibles like the gramophone, bed sheets and more. I decided to gift my sister a bed sheet and found myself besieged with options.
The checkout process is like any other shopping site, with registrations, address delivery, many payment options and I got free shipping! It’s here that you add your message. But what is worth a mention is that the bed sheet I had ordered was not in stock. However, the site sent me a mail with more option to choose from. Which means it saved my time of having to make more choices and go through the rigmarole again. The customer care was helpful and the packet arrived on time. I need not open my computer on the go, the problem was solved on my email through the phone.
More recently, I found another interesting thing—express delivery. So for Father’s Day, the site is offering delivery within 24 hours. In case, you have forgotten to send one to your dad, now is the time. But remember, there’s more to see while you are there.
