While it can be hard to procure an item that you may have wanted for a while, it helps you to get your friends to pool in the money for you. It does not necessarily have to be just gifts.

GiftSimple does not however deliver the actual item to you, but only provides you with the funds collected after charging a minimal surcharge and lets you do the shopping.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

Gift Simple was founded by Jessica Lachs, who has an impressive educational record with Lehman Brothers, Cornell and Wharton School scribbled all over it. Jessica got the idea of coming up with GiftSimple when she needed a piece of luggage as a gift that was too expensive for her brother to buy single handed. He therefore got the help of a few friends and pooled in the money to buy it for her. She felt that there should have been an easier way to work things and one thing led to another and GiftSimple was born.
