If you're already tensing up at the thought of purchasing gifts for family or friends this holiday season, a new gift-giving app has you covered.
The free app called aha, available now on iOS and next month for Android, aims to take away the hassle of purchasing a gift and then shipping it to someone special.
Drones Take Off As Christmas Gifts
The app taps into your Facebook account to remind you of upcoming birthdays and then lets you choose from 10 different personality types, like techie or foodie.
It curates gift options in your chosen budget, and once you select your gift, sends your recipient an instant text message with a link to the gift.
If the present comes in a range of colors or styles, the recipient gets to customize it to their liking.
Even better, if the recipient already has the gift you've sent - or just doesn't like it - she can swap it with a different item in a pool of 20 to 30 options that fall within 10 percent more or less than the original gift's price.
Rest assured, the exchange is completely confidential, without the sender ever being alerted.
How To Choose The Perfect Gift
Once the recipient accepts the gift or chooses an alternative gift, the sender is prompted to enter in his payment information. Almost instantly, the recipient has the option to send a thank you note back to express her gratitude.
Gift giving (and accepting) has never been easier.
