Mobile gifting service Bond has announced the launch of its new Bond Gifts app on iOS, giving busy professionals an outlet for purchasing cultured, personalized gifts without taking the time to shop for them in stores or deliver these items by hand. The app allows users to send physical gifts or handwritten notes to colleagues, new business associates, friends and more without having to know their address.

Bond Gifts users can browse through a variety of gifts, curated by former head of merchandising at One Kings Lane, Angelo Bruno. These gifts include candles, desk toys, small clothing items and household decor, among others. Users can browse items based on price range, or can stick to sending handwritten notes for $5 each.

When sending a note, the app allows users to type the text of the note, and the Bond Gifts team then transcribes it using a fountain pen on embossed stationary. The note is then sealed with wax and sent to the user. In cases where the sender doesn’t have the recipient’s address, the app can be used to request that address, as well as import contacts from the user’s iOS device for future gifts.

In addition, the app keeps track of important meetings and events in users’ lives, including birthdays, anniversaries and other events that might warrant the sending of a gift or handwritten note.

For a limited time, new users can send their first handwritten note for free from the app. The Bond Gifts app is now available to download for free on iOS. Check back soon to follow the app on AppData, our tracking service for mobile and social apps and developers.
