IGP.com - Website Review

Father's Day is just around the corner and my kids were after me to help select an appropriate gift for their Dad.We did not want to get the usual flowers and cake and trudging from one shop to another with the kids was out of question in in this hot weather .







So we decided to explore different websites for online gifting and zeroed in on Indian Gifts Portal  because this one is proactive.If you are at a loss about about what to gift,they have a wide range of suggestions and filters according to profession,personal taste,age and sex of the person whom you want to gift.So for an elderly father, you could select from sugar free goodies,a carved walking stick or even a pocket watch ! ... And there are many more to choose from .

After going through the exhaustive gifts menu the kids asked me to order a Park Avenue Essentials Grooming Kit for men .




PROS of IGP.com

1.Established in 2001, Indian Gifts Portal (IGP.com) is one of the oldest, LARGEST and most experienced gifting portal in India .IGP.com ships orders to 150+ countries (including USA, UK, Australia, Canada etc) and 7,000+ pin codes in India.

2.It is a very user friendly website.The website loads quickly.Navigation is easy.Good quality images .

3.Filters and classification of gifts by age (kid ,young ,elderly ),occasion (birthday, anniversary,Valentine's day,Father's day ,festivals etc.) and even personality of the receiver (professional ,nature lover ,home maker,party lover etc.)!


4. I was very happy with the prompt delivery.Our gifts were delivered the very next day of ordering.

5. Good packaging - Our order was packed with enough care to ensure that it reached us undamaged and intact.

                        
The gift - unwrapped !



CONS of IGP.com

1. I found that there was no detailed description of gifts, like for instance for a shirt, it was not mentioned if it was slim fit or a regular fit neither a size chart was included.For jewellery,the description does not include the length or width of the article.Though they do have a provision wherein if you are interested in an item and want to know details of the item selected,then you can just fill a form through their website and they will call you back or send the details .I did not try this feature though .

FINAL VERDICT  - I rate it a 4.5/5. This one makes gifting a pleasure to both the giver and the receiver .

    1. Yes ! They have made gifting more thoughtful and easier because sometimes we don't even know what to give and where to start but this makes you think about his/her likes and personality before you zero in on what to gift .
