Parcelgenie unveil their new TxtGenie service - review.

Tuesday 21 July 2015

Last week the lovely people at Parcelgenie kindly sent me two codes to surprise my loved ones with a little gift.

I have both received a gift and sent gifts using this service previously so know how easy and fun it is!

For the purpose of the review, I sent one gift for my Mum and one to Liv so that I could get photographs and review them properly.

I chose this beautiful box of 8 scented tealights by Hana Blossom for my Mum. Don't they look amazing? 

Each flower petal is handmade by a local artisan in Central Thailand meaning your purchase will make a difference to the lives of adults and Children in the developing world.

The tea lights are so pretty, it would almost be a shame to light them! They have a lovely subtle scent and would love lovely it a clear glass tealight holder allowing you to admire the design.

They arrived beautifully wrapped in tissue paper and ribbon safely inside a cardboard box for posting. Priced at £5.99 delivered.


Next I chose this lovely Blues box for Liv as it is reminiscent for a certain popular Disney film! 

When the box arrived, the package inside was wrapped in lovely blue tissue paper. Once opened it contained two chocolate covered toffees, a bag of blue jelly sweets, a bag of blue sugarcoated marshmallows and a swirly blue lolly pop. Liv dived straight into the lolly pop while I was mean Mummy and popped the other treats away for another day. Priced at £3.99 delivered.
The process really couldn't be any easier, simply download the Parcelgenie App choose your gift and enter the mobile number of the person you wish to send it to. The recipient will then receive a text message letting them know that your mobile number has sent them a gift and asking them to reply to the text with their address. Simple!

As if that wasn't easy enough, Parcelgenie have recently unveiled a new TxtGenie service where you don't need a smartphone, laptop, PC or anything other than a mobile that can send a text. With this service you chose a gift from ten options then text Parcelgenie letting them know who you would like to send that gift to and their mobile number. Then just pay for the gift and sit back while they do the rest (text your Friend asking fir their address) Easy peasy! Even better, the first gift you send will be half price! A full 50% off.

Both of the parcels I ordered fitted easily through the letterbox so there is no need to worry about timing the delivery for when the recipient is home, they can just return to a nice treat instead.

As a little incentive to treat your Family and Friends, the App comes complete with a loyalty card which is automatically stamped whenever you send a gift. Once you have sent six gifts Parcelgenie will send you a little something just for being so lovely to all of your Friends and Family. Isn't that nice of them?

Disclaimer - I was sent two free codes to enable me to review the service, however all images and opinion is my own.
