It's way too cold out to go Valentine's Day shopping, so don't. Use Giftagram, a Toronto-based iPhone app that lets you buy and send presents via email or text without ever leaving the cozy warmth of your couch. Browse the app's network of boutique local retailers and quality national brands, and send with a few easy taps.
It's truly the lazy person's shopping solution, and you don't even need the recipient's address. Send gifts using only a phone number or email address; giftees receive a notification directing them to a secure landing page where they type in their preferred address for delivery.
Right now Giftagram only delivers within the Toronto area, but there are plans in the works to expand.
Giftagram picks: Muttonhead toques ($40) and Jenny Bird Maderas necklaces ($50) are both star products by local designers.
Look out for: Fun experiential gifts like an urban renewal facial ($99) from local all-natural skin care brand Pure + Simple and yoga classes ($40) from 889 Yoga. The app also has a special Valentine's-themed section to make shopping even simpler.
