GoGivit is a gift giving application that helps users discover the best items to give as presents. The user can create a potential gift list for someone. GoGivit creates an anonymous questionnaire that asks the gift recipient to rate each item based on how much they would like to receive it. The user can see the results and pick the best present based on information obtained directly from the recipient. As soon as a new user logs in, they can view a list of upcoming birthdays pulled from their Facebook friends list. The user can manage gifts for multiple recipients at a time. Gift ideas can be added and associated with each individual contact. The user can also import contacts from Facebook.
GoGivit was introduced in March of 2012 as a better way to find out what someone would like to receive without guessing. The application can help users refine their gift selection. While it is useful, GoGivit isn’t a necessity. There hasn’t been much talk about the application on the web however it is still expanding its user base. The service is appealing and encourages users by donating a portion of dollars spent to charities.
GoGivit is a unique application that is hard to compare to other gift giving tools. The application helps users by allowing them to anonymously ask the recipient directly what they would prefer out of a list of potential gift items. The application also stands out because it automatically donates 1% of its proceeds to the charities it has partnered with. The user can give a good gift and feel good about supporting a cause.
GoGivit has a fun, almost flashy color scheme that favors deep green and pleasant blue. The site’s mascot is a playful round penguin that peers out from the logo and smiles cheerfully amid a pile of charming gift boxes. The atmosphere sets the tone for a positive experience as users try to figure out what to buy for someone special. The experience is casual however the site still retains a clean, clutter-free interface.
New users can begin by clicking the orange “Get Started!” button found near the bottom of the GoGivit homepage. The next page contains a blue “Connect using Facebook” button that the user can click to sign in to their Facebook profile. The user must login with Facebook and let GoGivit access their account to register and use the application. No alternative sign up is offered at this time.
Anyone can use GoGivit to improve their gift giving options for free. There are no subscription fees and the user doesn’t have to pay anything extra when they order a gift online. The service even donates 1% of its earnings to partner charities, so the user can feel even better about using it. The cost of items ordered online is left entirely up to the retailer. GoGivit does not add any additional fees to the sale price.
GoGivit is a great solution for anyone who is giving a gift. The application helps users decide which items the recipient really wants without revealing who will be giving it to them. The application is very easy to use and provides a fun, pleasant environment that makes the entire gift organizing process even more interesting. The user can order items online and save themselves a trip to the store.
