Really awesome bot. I'm not the typical online buyer but I've found this chatbot perfect for discovering interesting new things really quickly. This will come in handy for those family and friends who are tricky to find the "right" gifts for!!!

Pros:

Shareable, Fun, Helps me discover new things, Personalised

Cons:

Some items don't ship to New Zealand :(

Thanks for the review @jennyzcheng! We are hoping to incorporate more gifts that ship to Australia and New Zealand over time!

Mostly love the user interface and the ability to pick and choose what appeals to me.

Pros:

Cool idea! S.omehow it knew that I love cats and displayed a bunch of cat related gifts :O The bot is really user friendly + fun to use!

Cons:

Eventually the gift selection algorithm can improve, looking forward to that!

Thanks @alyssaong1337! Glad it could find some gifts you like! Our product recommendation algorithm is a huge focus and we will be continuously improving it!

Love this bot! Although it was good for helping me brainstorm gifts for friends, it was also great to discover new products that I didn't know I needed, sort of like what thisiswhyimbroke.com does.

Pros:

Great for discovering products I didn't know existed

Cons:

Shipping to NZ can be pricey, but would be great for US, UK, AU, CAN etc

Thanks for the feedback @kiwigiles and great to hear you've had fun with our bot!

Overall, I feel that this is a great product. Makes life so much easier, especially at the Christmas time of the year. Through this product I was able to discover items and gifts that I had never thought of before. Also, this product helped me to figure out gift ideas which are personal to the person I am giving them to. This is something I really liked about the product and made the product very useful.

Hopefully the product becomes even better overtime (e.g. Improve the surprise element of the gifts). But otherwise great product!! :-)

Pros:

This product makes my life much easier when coming up with gift ideas for my friends.

Cons:

Despite how helpful this product is, it kinda decreases the surprise element of the gift.

Hi Product Hunt community! My name is Ming, and together with Daniel (@daniel_xu1), we are pleased to bring you Gift Insights! It’s a gift recommendation tool that helps you find gifts your friends and family actually want. It all started when we were looking to get a birthday gift for a good friend of ours. Finding a good gift was difficult, as we wanted it to be unique and something they’d actually enjoy. From then on, we decided that gift giving shouldn’t be this difficult and strived to solve the problem. We decided to build a bot on Facebook Messenger so people could use the tool without having to download anything. It also enabled Gift Finder, a nifty game to help you find a gift with the input of your friend without revealing what you will get them. We are happy to answer any questions and would appreciate any feedback or suggestions to make this even better!
@daniel_xu1 @techno246 Cool idea! Do you have plans to use data collected from friend's Facebook / Instagram profiles to make personalised recommendations?
Thanks for the feedback @abadesi! We have thought about this However, we found there is limited data we can collect from social media due to Facebook's rather stringent data access policies (probably for the best!), and we don't want this to become too intrusive. However, we are currently building our own recommendation engine which will become smarter once more people use the service, especially when the gift giver becomes the receiver :)
