Corporate and event gifting can create last-minute logistical woes for even the most seasoned business or event professional. The best-laid plans can go awry thanks to supply chain challenges, shipping delays, and the ever-rising transport cost.

Unwrapit offers a way to align gifts with your business values by ensuring they are meaningful, easy, and low or no waste. The Unwrapit gifting platform offers companies and event planners a way to digitally deliver sustainably minded branded gifts — digital, charitable, or experiential — that recipients can select based on what resonates most with them.
