Remind-a-GIFT sounds death knell for panic-bought presents and petrol station flowers

Husbands in the doghouse for forgetting their wedding anniversary, best friends falling out because of overlooked birthdays and panic-bought presents could all be a thing of the past, thanks to the launch today of a unique new Facebook app.

Remind-a-GIFT, which is the creation of online leading gift specialist,, promises users a ‘one-stop shop’ for all their gift needs, with upcoming birthdays, anniversaries and other special occasions of friends and family synched into one easy-to-use app.

The bespoke app, launched in response to a growing number of Britons struggling to remember key occasions in the lives of their family and friends, also offers users monthly email reminders.

Using a unique programme that enables users to effortlessly synch their birthdays, wedding anniversaries and other key gifting occasions with friends and family, Remind-a-GIFT presents an automatically updated list of these events due to happen over the next month, with helpful countdowns and direct links through to relevant pages on Gift Ideas for Two’s website to help with gift suggestions and purchasing.

A special section called ‘Big Ones’ also highlights major events, such as Ruby, Golden and Diamond Wedding anniversaries.

The company, which offers more than 500 gifts specifically designed and created to be shared between two people, confirmed that each user who installs the app at Remind-a-GIFT will also receive a free Professional Photoshoot session worth £35.

Each month, users will be sent an email of all upcoming events, ensuring that even if they’re not daily Facebook devotees, Remind-a-GIFT will eliminate the risk of forgetting birthdays, anniversaries and even Valentine’s for their nearest and dearest.

The app follows well documented research showing that half of men don’t know the date of their own wedding anniversary and one in four has even bought flowers at a petrol station.*

Shaun Powell, Managing Director of Gift Ideas for Two, said: “We’re delighted to launch Remind-a-GIFT today and save countless people across the UK the embarrassment of forgetting birthdays, anniversaries and other special occasions.

“We’re sure friendships will be saved and families kept on speaking terms through people using the app; not to mention giving us the help we all need sometimes to purchase gifts for those ‘hard to buy for’ friends and family. We also hope that through the app, petrol stations flowers and panic-bought gifts will become a thing of the past!

“What’s more, our free Professional Photoshoot session means we can all create more happy memories to cherish for the future too. Remind-a-GIFT is sure to become a well-loved and well-used app when it comes to marking the milestones in the lives of our nearest and dearest.”
