Parcelgenie – an app that helps you spread a little happiness

ParcelGenieLogoI’ve just discovered Parcelgenie and I just have to share my experience with you.  It is such a simple way to spread a little happiness.

Parcelgenie! The world’s first instant gift messaging app lets you send real, little gifts to friends and family. No address needed!

What a wonderful idea!  I just had to try it.  I’d had a really up and down couple of weeks and was in need of a little treat and I have a friend who definately needed cheering up, so this sounded like just the thing.

My only problem being that this wonderful app doesn’t work with Blackberry.  No worries, I had a cunning plan and ‘borrowed’ Daddy P’s Iphone 🙂  The Parcelgenie app also works with Android and Windows phones.

So, bearing in mind that this was the first time I’d actually used the said Iphone, I was amazed by how quick and simple the process was.

I decided to send myself the first present so I knew the exact process before testing it on my friend.

I selected the gift recipients mobile number (myself in this instance), I then scrolled through the selection of gifts (the gifts start at £1.99 and include retro sweets, chocolates, pampering kits and jewellery). You have the option to select a little card to go with your gift and can add a personalised message.  Then click send.

I then received a text on my own phone (are you still with me?)  telling me a friend would like to send me a gift, the text asks you to confirm your address for delivery (text reply is free).  I also received a separate text from Daddy P’s number saying he was sending me a gift and the text included the personalised message from the card – how clever is that!

The very next day the postman delivered this ….

I’d decided that I needed a bit of a pamper treatment, and my lovely, gift-wrapped packages contained ….

I can recommend 🙂

I repeated the process for my friend in need of cheering up, and sent her a box of six Chocolate Cake Bombs, she was thrilled and apparently they didn’t last long 🙂

Both orders cost less than £10.00 each so a real bargain and a great way to send a little something to someone special.  I will definately be borrowing Daddy P’s phone again!

I also have some great news!  The lovely people at Parcelgenie are offering you all a 30% discount on your order (please note that this code will expire mid-July). Use voucher code 9EH1F7

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure. If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.
