The gifting culture didn’t lose its charm even in the 21st century. This brings equal joy to the giver and the receiver. It takes more than just your wallet to be a great gift giver. Your gift reflects your unique taste in stuff. Finding the perfect gift for any occasion can be difficult but once you do, and the giftee truly adores it, that feeling is really satisfying.
But these are busy times, you can’t roam around in the gift shops like before. No one really has that much time in their hand. That’s why online gift shops are slowly replacing physical shops. You can now select your gifts from their wide range, make payments and provide an address, et voila! You are good to go.
To make things a little easier for you, we’ll go through some of these online gifting services, what they have to offer, and what they don’t.
UpoharBD is one of Bangladesh’s oldest online gift stores, having started as a small flower shop in Dhaka. They take orders from Bangladesh, Australia, the US, Canada, Europe, and the Middle East. Even if you live abroad, you can send gifts to your loved ones in Bangladesh. Except Khagrachori and Bandarban, they deliver in all cities in Bangladesh.

Founded in 2018, Xtra is Bangladesh’s first and only digital gift and reward card platform. They allow you to give gift and reward cards to family, friends, and loved ones, as well as employees, distributors, and clients of your company. This is quite different from traditional gifting and also very convenient.
With Xtra, you can give your company’s employer, distributor, family members, and friends gifts or rewards cards from any of the merchant organizations of their choice (eg: any restaurant, or fashion outlet). Whoever you give the gift cards to can go to the specific store and select the gift of their choice.
To use their gift card service, you need to get their app, which is available in both the App Store and the Play Store. These cards usually have a six-month validity period, but premium users can schedule the time themselves. Xtra is currently only operating in the Dhaka metropolitan area but plans to expand to cover the entire country in the future. The cards can be purchased using Bkash or Debit/Credit Cards.
Daraz is one of the most well-known names in the industry. With their large online gift portal, shoppers can now buy and send gifts to Bangladesh from the most trusted and reliable online gift stores.

Giftallbd is another well-known gift delivery service in Bangladesh, serving thousands of customers from all over the world who want to send gifts to their friends and family in Bangladesh. Their online gift package, tracking process, gift delivery, and customer service team, as well as their network of quality product suppliers, are their strongest points.
There is a huge selection of gift items to choose from. From 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., they deliver common gift items, flowers, cakes, and groceries all over Bangladesh. At checkout, you’ll be able to choose your preferred gift delivery date and time. They offer assistance to new customers. You won’t have to worry about safety since all of their staff have photo IDs.

7. Khaas food
Khaas Food is mainly an online grocery store that makes grocery gifting easy for you. We’ve all experienced how difficult it is to fit grocery shopping into our already hectic schedules. That is why, in my opinion, grocery gifts can be very thoughtful gifts for your friends and family. What makes Khaas grocery gifts special is that they are organic and fresh.
You simply choose useful items from their inventory, provide your close one’s address, and make payment, and you’re done. They provide the fastest delivery, so you don’t have to worry about anything. You can pay with bKash, credit and debit cards, and so on.
Online gift services have made our lives, relationships, and friendships easier as they save us time, sometimes save us from embarrassment because we often forget the occasions, and allow us to order a last-minute gift. It also allows us to send an anonymous gift (which I do not recommend. No one wants a gift from a creep).
All of the above-mentioned online gifting services can be excellent choices for you to select a perfect gift. It is safe and convenient. They can be a little pricey, but come on, it’s totally worth it for your loved ones.
