Amazon Surprise App

If you hate holiday shopping as much as I do, you need to give Amazon’s new app a try. It’s called Surprise! and it takes all of the hassle out of finding gifts, wrapping them and delivering them to your friends and family members. With Surprise!, you can simply put together a cute e-card, attach an Gift Card and leave the heavy lifting to the recipient.

  • Send a quick e-card or personalize it with just the right sentiment and customize it with a photo, video, audio greeting, personal message, or handwritten signature
