Major Retailers Come Together for Click It To Gift It Day: December 23rd

Today a conglomerate of national and regionally known retail brands announce the end to panicking over last minute holiday shopping and shipping by participating in the inaugural Click It To Gift It Day on December 23rd. This date is typically when retailers are unable to guarantee delivery of presents and plastic gift cards by Christmas, and a major source of anxiety for millions of last-minute shoppers.

To alleviate some of the stress shipping deadlines cause, shoppers can visit the new Click It To Gift It Day website to send highly personalized eGift cards instantaneously via email to anyone, anywhere and in-time from participating retailers. The ability to ignore the shipping deadline in favor of shopping from the comfort of a browser up to the very, very last minute adds two more shopping days for those who need them. Click It To Gift It Day guarantees shoppers stay off of holiday “naughty” lists by giving them the option to deliver timely, personalized gifts to everyone on their lists. And, senders are automatically notified when their presents have been received.

“For last minute stocking stuffers to gifts for those who have it all, restaurant gift cards have soared in popularity during the holidays,” said Esteban Delgado, Chili’s Grill & Bar marketing director. “Click It To Gift It Day gives our guests a stress-free, gift option that can be personalized and delivered instantly via e-mail to each person on their holiday list.”

It’s another way The Children’s Place can make the holiday season easier for our customers.”

“Click It To Gift It Day has an opportunity to play into the hands of the ever-present “procrastinator” and ideally will be an important revenue contributor just like Black Friday and Cyber Monday,” said Lauren Freedman, president, the e-tailing group. “Shoppers need a way to stay ahead of their busy schedules and the Web has always excelled at helping shoppers save time, so we’re excited to get behind an effort that makes people’s lives easier at a time when they should be enjoying friends and family. This savvy business best practice is a win-win for retailers who will only benefit by being better advocates for their consumers, while shoppers experience the ultimate in convenience at a very harried time of year.
