Gifting is an important tradition of Indian culture and we exchange gifts for every occasion. But most of the times we get confused in choosing gifts for the right occasion or festival and more often than not end up gifting something else. What if I had told you that an online portal can help you choose the right gifts for occasion or festival?
Indian Gifting Portal (IGP) is an online gifting portal that was established in 2001 and they are the oldest and largest gifting portal in the country. They specialize in various gifts like flowers, personalized products, festival merchandise and more. Let us look at how IGP works and how their website helps customer making the right decision for gifting in this review.
On opening the website, you are greeted with a material design layout combined with a red accent which looks pleasing. IGP logo sits on the left side and the center portion of the header is occupied by Search Bar. On hovering the mouse over Search Bar, it shows three categories viz ‘Top Collections’, ‘Top Searches’ and ‘Top Products’. Most searched categories are listed on the right side for quick navigation.
Gifts are neatly categorized according to the occasion/festival. It even has the option to choose gift according to gender. The unique thing of IGP is they allow users to choose the right gift according to relationships. For instance, there are gifts for Mother, Father, Sister, Brother and more. The catalog is very huge and there are plenty of gifts to choose from their catalog. The products are displayed in a card layout and each card represents a product. A subtle animation is displayed while the product page is opened and little things like this enhance the user’s experience.
Call to action button like ‘Add To Cart’ and ‘Buy Now’ is placed at the bottom of every product.
There are no flashy things which obstruct user’s shopping experience.
There is a huge collection of gifts to choose from their catalog. Some of the popularly searched categories are Mother’s Day, Rakhi, Personalized Gifts and there are more. There are cakes, flowers, dry fruit gifting and more. The categories are neatly aligned with a separate heading for each subcategory. As there is a huge collection of gift, a filter option is provided which allows you to filter your search according to the price.
Another unique thing is that the website is designed in such a way that it will show recommended gifts for the upcoming festivals with date and month clearly mentioned. Sweet!
