It’s a mega, mega deal!

Well, it’s just over a week since we launched our Mega Deals at Gift Kenya. The reception has been favorable, and the feedback very encouraging.

When we say Mega Deals…we really mean MEGA deals. To thank you all, and to celebrate our first week of  these Mega Deals (Daily & Weekend Deals), we have put all our first 7 deals as our “Deal of The Day”. Unbelievable, right? How about if we told you all 7 deals will be running for the next 3 days? You decide!

Don’t worry about being selfish, the deal has no limit! :D So you can send flowers, cakes, chocolates or any others gifts to Kenya without worrying about whether others can order as well ! Let them know too.

Share the love. Spread the word.

Kenya Gift Delivery Service is FREE

The two most common questions we receive from our website visitors are :

1. How much do you charge to deliver?

2. How do you deliver?

- First and foremost, gift delivery charges have been waived indefinitely. So, gift delivery in Nairobi, Mombasa, Kisumu, Nakuru, Eldoret and any other major town in Kenya is and will remain free.  We want to be upfront with our visitors, so what you see is what you pay. There are no surprises when you are about to checkout. You will not suddenly see additional “service charges” or “delivery charges”. So, bear that in mind – always : All items on Gift Kenya come with FREE DELIVERY. And you can expect it to remain so for the foreseeable future.  We are only ever going to change this approach if we introduce a self-collection option, and the change would be to make it cheaper!

-Secondly, we deliver via various means. If the delivery address is within range of our HQ, our customer care staff will personally come and deliver the gift. We do this because we want to assure you that we care about how you feel about our service, and we want to hear it first hand when we deliver! Plus, we just love to see the smiles when someone is receiving a gift. If the delivery area is not within range of our office, our very efficient courier partners will do the job.

So, there you go, the two most common questions answered.

Thank you for your support, and as always, enjoy shopping for the best Kenya Gifts at our store

It’s never too late to send gifts to Kenya!

Let’s face it, some of us were too busy.  Some of us did not think it was important. Some of us thought Valentine’s is overrated. Or maybe the local florist was out of flowers. Or maybe some of us were, well…we’d rather not say! :p

For one reason or another, you did not manage to show your love on Valentine’s. You feel you should have sent some gifts to your loved ones. And now you are worried that your speical one is pissed. Worry no more…because at Gift Kenya, we don’t believe date should be a factor when expressing your love. Which is why we have a new category that should more than make up for Valentine’s : The Absolute Romantic category.

“But”, you say, “I don’t need to make up for anything!”. But, did you know that many people feel sad the day after Valentine’s? This is because they think that the only time they are going to get similar gestures of love is next year, so this is your chance to show them they are wrong, a chance to keep the love going. Everyone is sending gifts just on Valentine’s. Be different. Show your loved ones they are more special than the rest of the world. Show them what they mean to you. Show them that you are  Absolutely Romantic!

What’s so special about Gift Kenya?

This is the question we have been getting from almost everyone from the day that we came up with the idea of giftkenya.com. So here is the answer….what is so special about GiftKenya.com is that we treat each order as special. Many people have predefined products. They came up with the idea, how to wrap the gift, and that is it. At GiftKenya.com, we strive to make sure each order is customized to the person. In fact, even if you are not sure how the gift should be, we will be glad to help you. Yes, flower delivery in Kenya may not be something new. But we can make it special. Our local florist has over 10 years of experience as a florist.

We understand that in today’s lives, people are very busy with their schedule. Gone are the days when you could take a stroll in the parks or beach at 4 pm. Almost each of us works until 6pm nowadays. And the stress eventually strains our relationships with friends, relatives, loved ones, and even colleagues. At GiftKenya.com , we hope we can maintain healthy relationships without going to great lengths. Just a few clicks, and your order will be processed. It hardly takes 5 minutes to place an order with us. We will be preparing a 1 minute video soon to show you how it’s done. Our gift delivery in Kenya is definitely going to be the most efficient and cost-effective service. That we can assure you.
