City Pulse

If you have a family member charting a new course in college this fall or want to thank someone for their summer hospitality, here are two ideas that will please (almost) everyone — and make gifting as easy as a few clicks.

Yiftee.com specializes in not-so-random acts of kindness by enabling you to send gifts to clients, friends and family via your phone or computer. Your recipient will pick up the gift at a participating local store or restaurant. Brilliant concept! Yiftee lets consumers send real gifts to friends, family and colleagues quickly and easily via email, mobile and social networks. And Yiftee gifts can be big or small items – think latte, glass of wine, lunch, manicure, etc. – that the recipients pick up using their smart phones and tablets. The Yiftee gift is a dollar amount to spend so the recipient can choose whatever they like (the heartfelt note is sent with the Yiftee gift and is picked up on the phone or tablet). Visit http://www.yiftee.com

Send organic tea or tea gift sets from the esteemed Harney & Sons to anyone who appreciates fine tea. Anytime is teatime for people who love it, so it’s the gift that’s always appropriate and appreciated. View your many options at http://www.harney.com and remember to keep that pinkie finger out when sipping.
