  • Overview

    Are you a parent who is tired of seeing well-intentioned children's gifts go to waste? Have you been to a kid's birthday party recently and been astounded by the sheer volume of plastic that gets gifted? 

    • Millions of pounds get wasted every year on unwanted gifts that end up on the landfill 
    • The average child in UK owns over 200 toys but only regularly plays with a handful
    • 90% of toys contain plastic that cannot be recycled

    The time is now to encourage healthier habits and channel gift giver's well-intentioned energy towards more meaningful gifts that are better for the child and the environment.

    The product

    Gifter is an online platform that allows parents and guardians to invite friends and family to pool gift contributions for their child, thereby funding gifts and experiences that their child really needs. Resulting in less hassle, less waste and more meaning every time.

    There are various ways it can develop and the goal here is for every child to have a Gifter account in order to eliminate unnecessary waste and build healthier habits.

    The product is currently in the MVP and testing stage:
