Parcel Genie brings Instant Gift Messaging to Windows Phone 7

Sometimes you come across an idea that’s so whacky it might  just work.  ParcelGenie is a service which allows one to easily send small real gifts to friends and loved ones and makes the process relatively frictionless.

They have now released the app in Marketplace, and it was recently features by Windows Phone UK.

The service lets you send a gift even if you only know the recipient’s phone number, as they get sent an SMS to submit their address for delivery.

You can even setup Birthday Alerts from your Facebook Friends, and can post gift alerts onto your friends Facebook Wall.

The small gifts include a bag of sweets, a real bar of chocolate, a keyring, and many other small presents.

The service certainly beats those virtual presents (which still cost real money) which has been so popular before on Facebook, so we really hope it takes off.

ParcelGenie can be found in Marketplace here.
