Without online stores, people would be forced to hunt and gather their gifts while risking injury from roving packs of holiday-shopping velociraptors. Shop behind the safety of a firewall with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get a $30 worth of gifts from RedEnvelope, an online shopping emporium.
Boasting a head-spinning array of personal, thoughtful, and meaningful gifts, RedEnvelope provides memorable wares for the holidays and nearly every other occasion, including birthdays, baby showers, and anniversaries. Stash rings and blings in a leather jewelry box ($89.95) or treat the family to preserved memories with a hall gallery frame set ($79.95). Get outfitted for run-ins with ale-slinging cowpokes with a leather beer holster ($29.95) and pick up an extra to secure inconspicuously around the ankle for sticky situations. Create an archeological record of a child's first year with a baby keepsake kit ($59.95), complete with plaster kits for creating hand- and foot-print molds to flank the tike's photo in a solid-wood frame that comes with matting in your choice of four colors.
Find other artful gifts in categories like Jewelry, Baby & Kids, and Home Decor. RedEnvelope’s quality wares are covered by a 100% satisfaction guarantee and are shipped everywhere in the U.S.; orders can be expedited on the backs of a stampeding herd of wildebeests for snappier delivery (additional charge applies).
Before sending presents to their ultimate destination, RedEnvelope encases them in its free signature gift box—a bright-white ribbon wrapped around a crimson container, the red color inspired by Asian cultures that saw it as a symbol of happiness, good fortune, and love. Owing to this philosophy, RedEnvelope acts as a one-stop shop for gift-givers for any occasion, whether they’re celebrating a child’s graduation, thanking a friend, or sending themselves presents to pretend they have a secret admirer. Gifts range from cuff links and charm bracelets to home-brewing kits, leather cigar cases, and customized pillow covers. Many of these products are exclusive to RedEnvelope and can be monogrammed or personalized with the recipient’s name or ATM pin number.
