If you are lucky enough to have an invitation to someones wedding, or you are getting married yourself and are trying to think of alternative ideas for wedding gifts, then I think we may have the perfect thing for you! Festival Brides readers, meet Tinggly. An awesome company that is changing the face of gift vouchers across the world!
Tinggly offer gift vouchers for different experiences worldwide, packaged in their cool and quirky personalised gift boxes. How it works is pretty simple. You choose a gift box from their collection which will contain the vouchers for hundreds of different experiences. You add your personal message and then Tinggly will send the couple their gift box and vouchers with instructions on what to do. Once received, the couple will then pop online and choose their experience. And there’s no rush, they have 24 months to decide before the gift vouchers expire.
Maybe they are planning a honeymoon to Vietnam and would like to book on a 2 day tour of Halong Bay? Or if they are heading to Tuscany, a wine tasting experience could be perfect. For the adrenaline seekers, maybe a day volcano boarding in Nicaragua would be their experience of choice. Or white water rafting in Indonesia. Whatever they choose, you can be sure that this gift will create memories that will last a lifetime.
We asked Tinggly to explain a bit more about how their gift boxes work, what sort of experiences they offer and how you can purchase them!
Tell us a little bit about yourself?
We’re based in Europe, but we’re an international team with team members in many different countries. Tinggly is on a mission to make gift giving much more exciting and satisfying. Our gift vouchers can be redeemed against hundreds of amazing experiences all over the world.
What made you decide to start Tinggly and how do your gift boxes work?
Our philosophy is very simple: Give Stories, Not Stuff. There is a lot of scientific research that shows experiences are much more satisfying and memorable as gifts than physical items. We wanted to make the process just as easy. Vouchers can be presented either in a stylish gift box, or by email which is useful if someone is travelling. The recipient can then browse hundreds of experiences to find one that suits them wherever they may be in the world. Once they’ve made a selection, they enter their voucher code and we do all the rest. At the beginning we had just three collections, but over time we have expanded these after feedback from many happy customers.
Is there a selection to choose from and are they easy to purchase online?
At the moment we operate only online. We launched 6 new collections last week. So now we have 19 different gift box collections including For Him, For Her, Dream Wedding and our Ultimate Collection. You can find all our collections right here: https://www.tinggly.com/collections/. Purchase is a breeze, just select the one you want and checkout – we also use PayPal.
Tell us about your wedding gift boxes and what is included?
We have 3 wedding gift boxes available: ‘Dream Wedding’, ‘Happily Ever After’ and ‘Just Married’. They are priced differently, depending on the number of experiences in each collection for recipients to choose from, and the value of the experiences themselves. For example ‘Happily Ever After has 240+ experiences available, and costs just £89. ‘Dream Wedding’ is the most expensive collection at £219, and the happy couple can then choose from more than 440 very special and romantic experiences in many different countries – perfect for a honeymoon treat!
What happens once a gift box has been purchased and how long are the vouchers valid for?
If you’re wanting to give a Tinggly gift voucher as a wedding gift, you can order it either by e-voucher or in a gift box. The e-voucher will be delivered to the recipient within minutes – great for last-minute gift ideas. If you choose a physical gift box it will be delivered in 2-3 working days anywhere in the world. Our vouchers are valid for two years, so people have plenty of time to make up their minds and maybe use them in conjunction with a long-planned holiday.
We can see you offer over 1000 different experiences worldwide that couples can choose from. What are the most popular and why?
For couples it tends to be the really romantic and special experiences like the private gondola ride in Venice, a cruise in Paris or the VIP helicopter flight over Las Vegas – all classic honeymoon experiences. But another really popular one is an overnight stay in a unique bubble hotel in France. If you look through our collection you’ll see that while we offer all the activities you’d expect in certain destinations, we also love to seek out interesting and unique experiences that are a bit off the beaten track.
What is it about Tinggly gift boxes that would make the perfect wedding present?
There are the obvious practical reasons, that you can send it directly to the couple, and include a personalised message (free of charge) and of course you choose a collection based on your budget, but the recipient(s) will choose the actual experience. But what makes them really perfect for wedding gifts is the anticipation and memories that come from an experience – you are sure to remember your stay in an amazing bubble hotel much longer than you will a set of candlesticks or a new phone. People can spend hours browsing the collection, imagining different activities. Experiences just make better gifts.

If our readers were to purchase one of your gift boxes as their wedding gift, what sort of service can they expect?
If you have Amazon Registry then you can add Tinggly to your wishlist. After you receive the Tinggly gift all you have to do is enter the voucher code on our website, Tinggly.com, and choose your experience and date – we take care of everything else. We contact the supplier and make the arrangements on your behalf, then send the tickets to you by email. It’s so simple. One of the ways we hope to stand out in this market is by our excellent customer service – we hope people will keep coming back to us for their gift ideas, and the best way to do that is to ensure that everything works well for them.
