Gift Idea: SmartBox– Just Arrived to America
I came across this wonderful gift idea completely serendipitously when I attended a party at Ripley’s Museum recently. The party was done to celebrate the official American launch for Smartbox because previously only available overseas.
I like to party so when I received the invitation, I was just excited to attend. Besides, as I always wanted to attend the Ripley’s museum so I must admit that I didn’t look at invitation much. So, I knew very little about Smartbox but that all changed at the party were I was giving a mini-informational section on this great company along with the meeting the World record holder for the fastest talker and boy did she talk fast. In addition to meeting the fast talker, we treated to complementary spa services such as mini massages, manicures and of course no party will be complete without food and drinks and this one had it.
Anyways, Smartbox is the next generation of gift cards in that its allows recipients to choose from a selection of activities and destinations with a given theme. So, when recipients receive their Smartbox, they can choose where to use the gift card based on the list of Smart partners in their region. The Smartbox is present in a CD-side box featuring– hence the name– with a color guidebook with details of each escape activity or escape. The gift categories include:
