Unique Gifts for Moms, Dads and Even Grads
From American Express Platinum Card Concierge and Gifting Expert Michelle Madhok
NEW YORK, May 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Parents are the second hardest to shop for, after spouses and significant others, according to the American Express Spending & Saving Tracker. To help with this season’s gift giving challenges, the American Express Platinum Card Concierge partnered with Michelle Madhok, founder of shopping site shefinds.com, to curate a collection of unexpected gifts for Concierge gifting specialists to recommend. Gifting specialists can suggest, locate, purchase and ship these gifts and more to Platinum Card Members hoping to pick the perfect presents this season. A selection of the full collection is available at www.shefinds.com/amex.
Together, Michelle and Concierge selected a handful of unique items and experiences for Mother’s and Father’s Day, graduations and weddings that put a new twist on the traditional. Some of these picks include design your own chocolate bars, rent a “dream car” experience, vintage games, quirky honeymoon luggage tags and even waterproof notepads, for those who do their best thinking in the shower.
“We’re so busy tackling life’s daily tasks, that before we know it, Mother’s day, a wedding shower or nephew’s graduation creeps up and we have to find a great gift, fast,” said Michelle Madhok, founder of shefinds.com, “Resources like the Platinum Card Concierge Gift Service can save you time and stress, and that’s the best gift of all.”
Michelle Madhok also offers the following tips to ensure the gifts you give are something your friends and family will love:
- Give a gift that has been personalized. It will show you’re thoughtful and didn’t wait until the last minute. Just keep in mind that many of these items can’t be returned.
- Use your resources. Whether a service like the Platinum Card Concierge or browsing online sites for inspiration, you don’t have to do it alone.
- Roam your loved ones’ social media pages to see what they “like,” “tag,” or “pin” to give you an idea of what they’ve been lusting after.
- Check out stores that are a little bit offbeat. They may not be the stores you think of first, but they often have the best finds.
Available to Platinum Card Members, the Platinum Card Concierge Gift Buying Service is available seven days a week, from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. ET by calling 1-800-525-3355, say Concierge when prompted. Purchases made by the Platinum Card Concierge Gift Buying Service will be charged to the Cardmember’s Platinum Card. All items sourced must be available for purchase from retailers that accept American Express.
