Our Story - Why Gift a Panda? Why we named Company Gift a Panda
What if you could rekindle the Christmas magic? Recreate that precious feeling of excitement, right as you are about to discover what new adventures you could embark on with your latest gift? What if you could gift something so extraordinary and memorable to bring back the joy of gift giving and gift opening?
We, like many of you, received many well intended gifts from friends and family who naturally ran out of new gift ideas. After receiving our 4th wallet, 5th tie, and always forgetting what we received or gifted for the last birthday, we decided to change that.
That is the essence of Gift a Panda, bringing back the magic. Gifting the perfect gift every time, one that will not be thrown away, re-gifted, or become obsolete or boring. A gift designed to please and become a memorable experience from the very first moment.
Gifting a Panda was the closest metaphor we could come up with to bring back that magic. The coolest, fluffiest, exotic, most special animal in the world. Gift a Panda represents––one-of-a-kind experiences as irresistible and unexpected as pandas.
Let’s face it, gifting can be a pain. How many awkward moments have you had to endure when someone thought they’d gotten you the perfect gift and you, um, didn’t. Slowly, you became disenchanted with the whole gifting idea, not because you're ungrateful. It’s just all that stuff hasn’t felt meaningful, let alone memorable, in a very long time. The joy of gifting things doesn’t seem to last.
You can’t buy meaning, tranquility, or togetherness––or, can you?
Instead of gifting another shiny new thing that will most likely end up at the curb next year (or worse, become forgotten entirely), give the gift they’ll never return, a shared memorable extraordinary experience. Gift a Panda!
