Need to Send a Special Someone a Gift? Then All You Need is Your iPhone and Bond

 |  |  |  |  |  October 18, 2013


Technology has made it a whole lot easier to keep in touch with friends, family, and other loved ones. Unfortunately, it takes a little of the personal aspect away because this same technology lets people do stuff on their phones, instead of doing it in person. Take birthday greetings, well-wishes, or presents as examples. Instead of a phone call, an actual visit, or a creative present, what you get instead is a text, an email, or an e-gift card.

It’s not that those things are bad, but it would’ve been better if the person made more of an effort to connect with you on a personal basis. Even if they’re hundreds of miles away, it can be possible, with a little bit of effort and a whole lot of help. Eager to extend such help is Bond, which is a service that lets people send curated gifts with a few taps on their iPhone.

Founder and CEO Sonny Caberwal explains: “I always have great intentions to send a gift or write a heartfelt letter, but they tend to get lost in the craziness of my day. Most e-commerce is focused on selling me products, but I needed a place that would help me follow through on those good intentions. So I created BOND to do just that.

Indeed, that’s what Bond does. It’s a step up from Amazon, since instead of generic gift cards, you’ll be sending presents with handwritten notes. Actually, they’re written by a robot named “Giles,” but he has excellent penmanship. It’s the next best thing to shopping for an actual present and mailing it out yourself.

You can check out what Bond has to offer by downloading their app from the iTunes App Store.
