You Got a Gift

How many times have you gone rushing to the mall for that last minute gift shopping for your family or friends or for your kid’s friend’s birthday? Have you ever given away an unwanted gift or have you received two of the same gifts before?

With the very busy lifestyle we have here in Dubai, buying gifts isn't an easy task, do you agree? I do especially when your kid gets invited to each and every classmate's birthday party each weekend. This gift shopping can be daunting at times.

But thanks to, we will never have to go through all this ever again.No missed birthday or celebration.

Shopping for gifts has never been this easy with the new online mall of gift cards at our fingertips, we will be able to give our friends and family the gift of “choice” to actually choose the gift they've been meaning to receive by simply sending them a prepaid gift card from favorite brands like Virgin Megastore, Galeries Lafayette, S*UCE Gifts, Boutique 1, Faces, iStyle, Vox Cinemas, Ski Dubai, Toys R’ Us and many more.

I recently received an eGift from Faces of AED 100 and I am able to buy exactly what I wanted and I am the happiest person on earth with my new CC cream from Bourjois. Imagine yourself receiving an eGift card and having to choose what you really like or need OR imagine friends telling you how happy they are with the thing they got by using the eGift card you send them. Everybody's happy and it's a win win situation :)

With my eGift from Faces, redemption was fast and easy, I think less than five minutes. I opted to print my eGift received through email and show it at Faces store after choosing my gift. eGifts can also be presented via Facebook and SMS. Apart from that, you can chose the occasion from a big list and personalize your eGift by adding a modern card design template from a number of cute templates, add a personal message and a photo even a video. Send it anytime or schedule it on the date you prefer. Payment is easy with major credit cards - visa and mastercard as well as thru paypal. Denominations start from AED 100, 200, 300, 500, to 1000 or set your own limits. Each voucher gets one year validity from the date of purchase. You can send eGifts here in the UAE, Qatar and in Lebanon. 

Another cool thing about is its Facebook plugin. Once you sign in using your FB account, it will automatically show you whose friends birthday is coming up in "My Celebrations Page" so no missed birthday ever again. It's Brilliant!!!

Let's visualize it shall we? Here's a video of how you can purchase your next gift with just a few clicks. Trust me it's so easy anyone can do it. becomes even more exciting when friends come together to make a group gift for house warming, baby shower, surprising your school teacher, a farewell or welcome gift for someone or celebrate any occasion. Companies can also reward employees for a job well done or surprise the boss through their corporate gifting or pool your money as a gift to friends getting married with their wedding registry.
