About this project

The Client: presenthunt.com is a new gift finder app offering search facilities for a range of unique and unusual presents based on the characteristics of the recipient. The Requirement: To write a few short, snappy sentences about each gift describing what it is and why it's a good idea. It's important is that the writing is engaging with a hint of humor/cheek (but not too rude, since children may well be looking).
