Finding the perfect gift isn’t easy to do, especially when people have so many parties leading up to their wedding (engagement gift, plus bridal shower gift, plus wedding gift...). And, in a day and age where grab and go gift-cards are sometimes just too convenient, the art of gift giving can (and does) get lost.

Luckily, you can thank good ‘ole technology to help you not only give the perfect gift, but with less stress and time, too.

From engagement parties to showers, birthdays to anniversaries and beyond – here are some helpful apps to help you nail gift giving.

Fab

With a curated array of unique lifestyle items and home decor, Fab has something for everyone and every style. With departments including home, art, tech, and “fun and style,” you can find funky and fun home accents and decor that are sure to please any preference. As an added incentive, you can earn points within the app as a Fab Insider, which will accrue towards your next purchase. And, shipping over $75 is free, with free returns.

Gyft

Not only a great service to keep your gift cards organized and digitized, Gyft also enables you to send e-gift cards to any recipient, along with an accompanying note or video. As a perfect way to say “thanks” or “thinking of you," send an instant gift card from over hundreds of retailers seamlessly and instantly.

Giftagram

Gifts on demand? Yes, please! Without needing to track down the recipients shipping address, you can shop from categories including tech and gadgets, alcohol, flowers, gourmet, and more – and then gift on demand! You can even set birthday and event reminders while adding personalized messaging, too. The best part? Gifts are added weekly so there’s always fresh and fun new options!

Bloomthat

No need to panic if you forgot to send a bouquet for a special day, and no need to pay exorbitant rush shipping costs either. Enter, Bloomthat. Available in select cities, you can now have fresh and seasonal arrangements that are not only guaranteed to always match their picture, but are even available with same day delivery.

aha

If you’re looking to give something a bit different or unique, aha might have just what you’re looking for. With over 25,000 items from artisans and designers throughout over 45 countries, you can send an amazing gift to be on its way to your recipient within 60 seconds. The best part? With a “buy now, pay later” option, you only pay when your gift is digitally accepted (or it can be swapped, too!) AND standard shipping within the United States is free.

Zeel

In keeping with the gifts-on-demand trend, how about something more experiential? Who couldn’t use a massage these days? Thanks to Zeel, you can seamlessly order a massage for a lucky recipient who is in some need of R&R. The service provides a background checked and certified massage therapist who will come to your home, and the gratuity is included in the pricing so the lucky gift-getter has nothing more to do.
