Product/Service Summary

Wishpicker helps you search gift ideas based on relationship with recipient, and their personality.

Data driven algorithms fuel our recommendations: data scientists use machine learning, draw insights from user behaviour.

Social platform shows suggestions from gift experts (among other users) - lets you see what people are saying about a gift.

How are we different?

Our recommendations are powered by strong data-driven algorithms, built by IIT data scientists.

Social models have worked beautifully in the fashion/lifestyle verticals recently. Gifting is inherently a very social activity, and thus, social discovery (complementing intelligent recommendations) is key to crack the broken gifting market globally.
