Use your cellphone to send theme based gift boxes

Sesame from Sincerely is an mobile app that lets users browse, pick and send theme based gift boxes. They include hand-picked items centered around a theme such as ’Cocktail Hour’, ‘Baby Playdate’, ‘Game Night’ and ‘Puppy Picks’ etc, offering a vast range of items for both adults and children.

The beautiful and catchy blue Sesame present box unveils a great unboxing experience. From the narrative enjoyment guide to a personalized greeting card, its recipient will relish glancing at your gift as much as the actual object. Users are just required to submit their gift set ideas and chosen gift sets are featured in the app.

Background of the company

Work on Sincerely began in the summer of 2010 when Matt & Bryan started with a very simple idea: a printed postcard is the world’s most simple and ubiquitously appreciated gift. With the rise of smartphones, we could allow people to create & send a postcard with their own unique content from anywhere in the world.


Basic concept

The idea is to create a large gifting network – a place where you can mail any of your friends and families gifts of all types. As the website notes: “We’re here to make you a better son or daughter, mother or father. Your precious moments are our specialty and we would like to be there for you on every occasion.”

Postagram, Ink Cards and PopBooth

Mail postcards from your iPhone or Android device using your photos from your Instagram or your phone; or mail personalized greeting cards that make drugstore cards look dreary and dull. You may create and mail your own photostrip of 4 photos from your iPhone.

More on Sesame

While initially, the app fills its contacts list from those saved on your device, it also uses Facebook integration and other tools to discover the addresses’ you don’t have saved. For example, Sincerely will send an email to another user asking for their address (in a very nice, non-spammy way) while your gift is on hold. After the user responds, the gift ships.
