Challenge

Our client was willing to move his store over internet, an e-commerce online store concept. The client required a website which can offer unique, elegant and memorable gifts to the users for different occasions. Client wanted a common destination for gift givers, gift recipients and vendors. His concept was to enable gift recipients, such as a wedding couple, to create wish-lists' of items they would like to receive and share these with their friends and gift givers. Gift givers can browse their friends' wish-lists' or even the master catalogue on the website, buy gifts for their friends and ship it to them.

The client also wanted to provide a free exchange facility for gifts which will allow its recipient to easily book ideal alternative of that gift and provide all the facilities throughout the gifting process.
