Buying Online Gifts in Dubai vs Traditional Gifting

Gone are those days when people used to go to a shop to buy a gift, wrap it in those fancy papers and go directly to the houses and give away the gift…In today’s busy life, when convenience has taken over all walks of life, sending gifts also takes a new face. Today, technology has changed the meaning of lifestyle especially when it comes to celebrating a special moment in your loved one’s life.

Online Gifts Dubai

In this era of google, where every information is available only a click away, let’s take the advantage of the whole scenario. Online gifting has been one of the blessings happened to our lifestyle, especially in this part of world. Being settled in Middle East, we must have come across many people saying it’s just a Friday that we get, let’s sit and enjoy at home. Yes, exactly, but what do we do if there’s a party coming up or a special day of your family member or a friend. That exactly was the thought that initiated the idea of online platforms to come up with an idea of giving away the gifts online. There are so many benefits of taking it this way.

  1. Convenience – No hassle of going out

Yes, that exactly is the biggest advantage of online gifts (Dubai) while compared to the traditional way of gifting. The gifts are showcased in your living room, just in a click and you are free to choose it at your convenience. Enjoy your holiday at home spending some quality time with your family and loved ones.

  1. Availability – We have it all in one single point.

Two birthdays coming, one is your mother’s and another your friend’s kid’s, this mostly defines you have to go to two different shops, at times two different places as well. Online gifting for the rescue again. We have it all on our page, be it a birthday, anniversary, or just a special where you want to express your feelings to your loved one. It gives an easier selection of gifts without much hassle and most imported is that the whole experience is done from home at your convenience.

  1. We are open 24×7

That’s one of the highlight of the online gifting system, suddenly remembered a birthday or anniversary late at night, just go online and pick one gift and sleep well. There is no such tension of the closing time of the shop, enjoy the whole shopping experience even at the late hours. Going online helps us in saving time during the day and the shopping can be any time you are free and relaxed.

  1. Online Gifting doesn’t stop in UAE.

Got relatives in Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Qatar or Bahrain? Sending gifts regionally just got so much easier. Regions favorite brands are also available in these countries and we assure you more surprises are coming your way. Gifting process is exactly the same way as UAE and works across any device.

  1. Save some change from the deals and offers.

Most of the online channels come up with offers and discounted deals mainly because of the absence of the middle men. We might have always witnessed a difference in any product when store bought and purchased online. And the savings is not just from the offers and discounts, but also as the shopping is done from home, no petrol expenses, no parking hassles.

  1. Climate is the biggest shopping enemy in UAE

Dubai is known for being the paradise for shopping, but the climate always plays a spoil spot. During summer, when the temperature is at its peak, who will want to go out to buy a gift, be it for anyone? Online gifting solves the problem and enjoy shopping from home and yes, beating the heat.

  1. No crowded shopping experience.

We might have come across a situation where we have left the shop without buying anything as it was very much crowded. Especially during a festival or any special event, the malls and shops so crowded that the whole scene turns into a chaos. Another head is finding a parking on such a busy day. Why create such a situation when you can shop from home.

  1. Short of ideas on what to buy, go for gift cards

There will be times, when we are stuck with absolutely no idea on thinking what to buy? Or especially when you are unsure of the liking and interest of the person whom you are buying the gift. When you wish to buy something for a gadget lover, but unsure if he/she already owns it, the Gift cards from electronics stores like Sharaf DG or Plug ins are really helpful.

  1.  Shop at peace.

Last but not the least, ‘Shopping at peace’ is very important as no one really influences your shopping. Most of the time we fall victims of the compulsive shopping from the shop keepers or sales person’s pressure and end up buying what we really dint want.

So, let’s all enjoy the whole fun of shopping from home and bring smiles on our loved ones faces all at our convenience. So in general you have a double benefit when you are buying online gifts in Dubai with YouGotaGift. One, the buyer get all the convenience, personalization features, quickness and security to buy online. Second, the receiver is able to easily redeem their gift card and get the gift they really love.

Happy Gifting!

Celebrate The Siblings Sacred Bond – Rakhi Gift Ideas in Dubai

India is known for its diverse culture and tradition specially when it comes to celebrating any festival, be it any religion. We, Indians are very much extravagant when it comes to expressing our feelings towards our loved ones. Rakhshabandan or Rakhi is one such festival, which showcases the special bonding between brothers and sisters. Rakhi is celebrated on the Purnima (Full moon day) in the month of Shravana. On the special day sister ties a sacred thread on her brother’s hand and the custom is followed by Pooja and the brother is obliged to take a vow to protect the sister.

Sending Christmas Gifts to Dubai Made Easy – A Personal Account

We at YouGotaGift.com pride ourselves on our feedback. We take everyone’s opinion into account and reviews are always welcomed. When we asked one of our long-time UK based customers to write a personal account of their overseas gifting experience this is what we received;

Where does one start when it comes to Christmas gift ideas and especially sending Christmas gifts to Dubai?
Another year has passed and another year of conjecture is upon us. What might make my family and friends smile on Christmas Day. So many gifts given with responses of insincerity and extended “thaank you’s”. It’s a polite reflex but it would be nice just once to actually give them something they could be happy with, and moreover, utilize! I mean, the majority of Christmas gifts can’t even be found in the house by the month of March. That’s what prompted me into the mission of avoiding unwanted gifts. And that’s when I began to look into gift cards, a phenomenon in the gifting world, on that has taken the gifting world by storm. A sweet, heartfelt gift that allows you to let your loved ones choose something they really want without putting a crinkled note in an impersonal envelope. What made it so, is the way I could add a video, photo and message. They’re also sent easily and free, which makes it a perfect Christmas gift to send to the UAE from abroad.

Christmas Gifts Dubai

Let’s face it; the stores are always jam packed in the run up to Christmas. Work is off and so are the schools for those vastly long Christmas holidays we all miss. The roads become carnage as the advent of this very merry public holiday approaches. Parking is a near impossibility and when you eventually do find a space it’s always in the furthest row away. As you begin the long trek toward the store entrance, you turn back to measure what seems like a lengthy abyss between yourself and the car, wondering how exactly you’ll haul back these giant purchases you proceed to painstakingly pick. Once you do finally make it into the store expect to be mobbed by a crowd of eager shoppers rushing for the best items.

This may seem a rather solemn sketch during Santa Claus season. However, when you transfer this infinite freedom of choice to the person receiving a gift the whole script changes. It goes from a shot in the dark to an enjoyable experience. YouGotaGift.com also lets you keep it personal not only with videos, pictures and message but also by maybe for once choosing something that they might like. I personalized my gift by opting to sing a Christmas jingle in a hilarious video.

Last year I slickly avoided sending an unwanted gift. A friend of mine has been a bike rider for the past few years, a fantastic hobby. I can’t ride a bike, so I didn’t know if he needed a new helmet, a pump for his tire, or a new bike all together. So I opted for an eGift Card for some merchandise for Ride Bike Shop. Turns out he needed a lock for his shiny new Cannondale. The eGift Card made him light up with joy and he even waited ‘til the sales to get another item too. I loved the experience! I made his Christmas and made it past an unwanted gift; without searching for a gift, without probing him as to what he might want, I mean I did it without leaving the house! “
