Take It From Me: GiftSling Review & GIVEAWAY (closed)

GiftSling Review & GIVEAWAY (closed)

Stumped on what gift to give someone? Well don’t worry because GiftSling has you covered!
Let’s face it buying gifts can be hard! Whether it’s a holiday, birthday, special event, or party, finding the perfect gift can be stressful and time consuming!  GiftSling takes a whole new approach to gift giving for both the gifter and the giftee!
With GiftSling, simply go to their site, complete a questionnaire for the person you are giving the gift to, and just place your $30 order. The questionnaire will ask things like what type of event is it, the gender of the giftee, and some other fun questions about their lives. Based on the information provided, GiftSling will choose the perfect gift for that person and ship it to them. No hassle and done in just a few short minutes.
GiftSling is fun because you have no idea what you purchased for your gift recipient until they receive it. It's all a big mystery. But don’t worry- GiftSling has sourced a wide variety of gifts for all types of events and people! Their gifts range from unique to funny, practical and even beautiful. You might even give something that ends up being worth a lot more than you paid for it!

Each GiftSling order includes: A custom packaged personalized gift, the results of the questionnaire that you completed prior to ordering, along with a special personalized note from you!
My concern was “What if they don’t like what they get?” Then I saw this on their website: “We want you to be happy! If the recipient of a Sling does not enjoy the gift they receive they can simply return it to us for a $20.00 Gift Card to the retailer of their choice.” That’s comforting to know!

Well I know you are all wondering more about this process and I actually had the opportunity to do a GiftSling order and am more than happy to tell you what I thought! My dad’s birthday was on Monday so I knew this was a perfect time for my review. Now first of all, this whole mystery order process was an interesting concept for me. I like feeling in control of things and the thought of buying something I had no idea about was…well a little scary at first. I had fun filling out the questionnaire for my dad and wondering what kind of gift he might be getting. The fun part for me was the anticipation on him receiving the gift and finding out what he got. The package was shipped in a very timely manner and I couldn’t wait to hear what my dad got. My dad liked reading the questionnaire I filled out and seeing how well I know him as well as reading the little personalized message I sent him. And what was his gift? A very cool and very useful 6-in-1 Multi-Bit 2 pack of Screwdrivers! My dad has been doing a lot of work around the house lately and was very happy to see this gift! It is definitely something he will put to great use! And me being the in-depth reviewer that I am looked up the retail price and it was very close to the $30 purchase (especially when counting in shipping cost)! I am very confident that GiftSling is not ripping their customers off by sending off cheap items and that they are actually putting great work into finding good gifts for people!
