About giftee

MISSION

Connecting “people & people”,
“people & business”, “people & community” by gifting.

STATEMENT

While the world becomes increasingly convenient with the advancement of IT in our lives, the moments of feeling a connection with people are, unfortunately, on a decline.

That is why, we started the “giftee” service that enables us to convey the feeling of “a small thank you” by gifting.

By cooperating with businesses and local organizations, we have also developed services that bring value to the gift-sender such as “giftee for Business” and “Welcome! STAMP”, making gifting less hassle and cost less.

Yet, we believe the potential of gifting is far more beyond that. Through gifting, we are spreading pleasant surprises and smiling faces.

We are multiplying the warm connection of people-to-people.

An opportunity may arise from a gift, to travel across to new place, or to experience something new.

We create opportunities to encounter little thrills like these. Yes, that is why we think there is a lot more that we can do.

Gift connects “people & people”, “people & business”, “people & community”. We are giftee.
