Delivering happiness, amazing people

About Us

It happens to thousands of people each week - an unsuspecting customer receives the gift of a life time from a loved one or colleague, but each experience is unique. We pride ourselves on our range of gifts, and the great experiences we can deliver to our customers. With over 500,000 gifts sold a year, we deliver happy memories to thousands! But to us Buyagift is about more than just delivering happiness, it's about the amazing Buyagift family we have built in our offices, and the close bonds we all have with
our colleagues.

A short message from Dan...
CEO & Founder

Thank you for visiting Buyagift!

Buyagift was launched in 1999 when my brother bought the domain name Buyagift.co.uk for £7.50 from Easyspace.

I had always loved experiences and had taken part in driving days, bungee jumping and skydives. I firmly believed that these experiences would simply make the most amazing gifts and I was excited about being part of a business that would make these more accessible for people.

I started working full time in the business in November 1999 and our web site launched in early 2000. At this stage we had two PC's that we had bought from PC World and two desks that were bought from IKEA. Our office was my bedroom in a family house in Muswell Hill, north London. We now have a team of 100 people working out of an office in New Barnet plus an additional 30 people based in our offices in Paris, Milan and Barcelona.

The first product we sold was a Bungee Jump and we now sell over 500,000 gift experiences a year. I'm pleased to say we are creating lots of happy memories. My view of business remains the same today as it was when the business started. We want to deliver happiness and amaze people.

We work hard to keep all of our customers 100‰ happy and we often talk about "the Buyagift Love". We really are passionate about keeping our customers happy and we always welcome any feedback to help us make improvements.

We also want to bring you the most amazing experiences at the best possible prices. Thanks to the massive volume of experiences we sell we are able to negotiate fantastic discounts and special offers for our customers. We have always offered a 150‰ price promise and we have a team of people monitoring industry prices to make sure our prices are the best available.

I have always said that it is the team that makes a business great and I'm very proud of the team we have at Buyagift. As a group, our aim is to amaze and delight our customers by being friendly and efficient, selling amazing experiences and selling them at fantastic prices.
