Why does Their Perfect Gift exist?
The logical thing to say is “after constantly receiving unwanted gift cards from friends, family and colleagues, we realised there was a gap in the market for a spend anywhere gift card” – Now this is all very true!
However, if the truth be told, the idea came about because of the insolvency of retailers. Each time a retailer in the UK goes into Administration or Liquidation, the Gift Cards that they have in issue is legally worthless. TPG was created to provide the consumer with protection for their gifting experience.
So, in order to achieve this, we needed to create a very complex payments infrastructure.
Their Perfect Gift is an “open loop” gift card, allowing the spender to use their card anywhere that accepts Mastercard (over 32 million places worldwide). We wanted to provide gifters the opportunity to never get it wrong and give the recipient a choice of their own purchase.
Birthdays, Christmas, Weddings, Corporates; the list is endless. For any occasion, our gift cards are guaranteed to make the recipient smile.
Then we wanted to provide personalisation – all our gift cards are attached to a greeting card and you can even add in your own personalised message!
With our App, Augmented Reality video messaging is also now possible.
Our Founders always wanted to be entrepreneurs. So, went on to train as accountants instead 🙁
After nearly 20years of successful corporate careers, they quit their jobs and started building out the TPG offering. It has been an adventure. One that has had many ups and downs.
Throughout the journey we have met and worked with some exceptional people. Every one that has ever have worked for TPG haven’t done so for the immediate money. We are building something far bigger!
We hope you like our product. But please know that we will always seek to innovate and live up to our values.
