It looks like every day a new e-commerce site is born in Kenya. In some of my earlier posts, I already looked at Books First, Quick Flicks Store, and Crystallwear.
And now I just discovered a fourth one: BubbleWrap Kenya. They focus mainly on gifts. The site is easily searchable or alternatively you can browse the categories, which go from books to wedding and couple gifts.
Busy girls may like the thought of a 1 hour of spa re-balancing massage. But they may find a sensitive friend who could offer them much more for less than the KSh 5,000 advertised for this massage. Handy men may like the 4 Drawer Topchest with 142pc Tool Kit. But their wifes may not like the KSh 64,995/- price tag. Cooking queens may love the Stylish italian stainless steel cutlery. But their husbands may frown upon the KSh 61,800/- cost.
BubbleWrap guarantees that you will receive your gift within 2 weeks unless it is a customized gift then it is 2 months... They accept payment by Mpesa, cheque, Visa and Mastercard. Bubble Wrap aims to deliver within 14 days using Fargo Courier. The cost of delivery will be added to your bill.
In conclusion: Interesting website, but I really hope they can come up with some more attractive prices (most items appear more expensive than in the conventional shops), or otherwise they should just wrap up this bubble.
