It's the same story every occasion. You buy gifts for a set of people, but you wonder if you've already given a similar item to that person.

What it does

what2gift is a gift tracker app that helps manage your gift-giving activities - creating events, adding recipients, planning gift items, generating 'to buy' lists and updating the gift status from bought, wrapped to delivered. Repeat the process for all your events, and you'll never be giving the same gift item to the same person ever again!

How we built it

The app runs on meteorjs. Our brains run on coffee.
