When someone is celebrating a special occasion or achievement, dropping them a gift or handwritten note in the mail can mean the world. But sometimes life whirls by in a blur and you miss the “mail by” date. Next time this happens, don’t panic! Givingli lets you send personalized notes and e-gift cards from dozens of stores via text message whenever you’re in a pinch. 

After downloading, choose from hundreds of digital greetings designed by artists from around the world. Once you find a card that fits your needs, it’s time to customize it! Type out a heartfelt message in a unique font, draw a picture, or add some stickers to spruce things up. You can even add a collage of photos. While most cards are free, there’s a premium option for $3.99 a month or  $32.99 for the year. Along with unlimited access to the greetings, premium users also get perks such as unlimited stickers and fonts to customize their greeting cards. 

And if a greeting just isn’t enough, Givingli also lets users send an e-gift card. Whether you want to treat the beauty guru in your life to a Sephora or Ulta gift card or the craft enthusiast to a Joann’s gift card, Givingli has got you covered with a wide variety of options to choose from. 

While sending handwritten notes is a special art form, sometimes you need a little extra help. Givingli is there to get it done when you need to send something thoughtful and fast!
