Giftly has been working on a better, more personal gifting product for more than a year now. We set our sights on gift cards —so widely-used, so commonly-disliked, so ripe for improvement with technology— and we were off to the races, developing many iterations of our ideas, getting them online, and seeing where our assumptions were correct and where we’d been mistaken.
We’ve also been learning about being a company: developing the culture we want and becoming the sort of business we admire, one that is honest, open, and determined to improve the lives of its customers.
We’ve learned so much, and we’re deeply excited to be putting that learning into some new work that we’ll release this spring. We think we’ve finally hit on the future of gifting, and we can’t wait to share it with you. As a result, we’re putting the entirety of the company’s focus and energy into development, and won’t be updating our blog or site as often.
We know that’s boring, but we also know it will be worth it. When we launch the next version of Giftly, you’ll be glad we marshaled all our resources to get make it awesome and get it out soon. We can’t wait!
