Never forget someone's birthday again thanks to Prsnt, the gifting app that enables users to source and send instant presents via text!

prsntAs we all know, it's been a pretty challenging time for the retail sector recently, so we love seeing startups that are creating innovative ways to help - startups just like UK-based Prsnt. Going live after a successful beta testing phase, Prsnt is an instant gifting app, which enables users to choose a gift from hundreds of the UK’s high street brands (online or in-store) and send it directly to another person’s smartphone. 

It's all about “mini-gifting”  and enabling users to send affordable, meaningful gifts redeemable from shops, cafés, pubs or online retailers – all for the same price as a birthday card and a stamp. Prsnt has partnered with lots of leading brands including Amazon, Asos, Spotify, Deliveroo, Costa Coffee and M&S to name but a few!

Omid Moallemi, co-founder and CEO of Prsnt explains: 

iPhones-with-brands-06-1“What we’re trying to achieve is a modern way of gifting, removing all the bottlenecks in terms of hassle, whilst also addressing sustainability. Prsnt achieves same-second delivery, so it’s perfect for when you realise that it’s a friend or a family birthday, or you don’t want the delay of sending something in the post."

He continues: “With Prsnt, giftees receive an invite to the app, and once downloaded are able to view the personalised message from the sender, and reveal their gift by digitally “unwrapping” it with their finger on the phones touch screen – like a virtual scratch card, to find a voucher to buy their favourite Starbucks coffee, or a drink at their local pub to redeem from that day.”

Whilst the app's current aim is to support UK retailers as they open up again after several lockdowns, should lockdown restrictions return, Prsnt can help people to stay connected with digital mini-gifts that can be redeemed from online retailers. 

A win-win for consumers and retailers alike!
