How we got here

Giftbomb was started with the core mission to make people’s lives a little more delightful.

Beginning with our time in the hospitality industry spanning over 35 years, we learned just how much a personalized experience can spark joy, connection, and ultimately make the world a better place. We’ve been chasing that feeling ever since. Any amount of fun our customers may have by sending a gift, or receiving a thoughtful gift at their door – we can guarantee you it’s even more fun for us.

After creating a platform to easily send digital gift cards from adored local businesses, we were hungry to make our services even more personalized. Our gifts are a reflection of our passion to craft joyful moments; ones that remind us of how special we are to those around us – and how delightful life can be.
