Gift Genius

When it comes to gift giving, there’s a difference between a need and a must-have, and is in the business of linking people up with life’s must-haves. As the ultimate online gift guide, GiftGenius’ talented editors, writers, and stylists curate the best and coolest products for all different interest and types of people. The result is a combination of entertaining editorial content and sophisticated search tools making GiftGenius unlike any site on the web right now. Search by price (under $20 to over $500), shop by personality (single guy w/ travel on the brain, teen girl who vies for varsity letters, etc.), browse by occasion (Groomsman, New Baby, etc.) or customize a search to obtain the perfect gift suggestions for any event, holiday or “just because” to surprise that special—or not so special—someone.

Additional features include the gifting spotlight “Trust Me, I’m Famous,” a platform where a notable celebrity, like TLC’s Stacy London and Ivanka Trump (soon to launch), offers their own personal gifting guidelines and suggestions. If a user is looking for more specific items, they can check out the “Tastemaker 10” section, which highlights an insider’s tips in the form of a Top 10 list. Recent “Tastemaker 10” features include the “10 Best Gifts Ever under $100” in which GiftGenius teamed up with EXTRA.

As a GiftGenius member (FREE!), in addition to having access to personally tailored gift ideas for any recipient (like a Bacon of the Month Club for the meat lover!) users can create their own wish lists and send them to their friends and family members, request wish lists from others, and create a calendar that will make sure they never forget their wife’s birthday, sister’s recital, Father’s Day or that housewarming party they RSVP’d to three months ago. By offering a suite of features to help users become the most adept gift givers on the planet, or look like they are, GiftGenius is poised to lead the pack as the modern guru of gift giving.
