Berlin-based social gifting app DropGifts expands aggressively

DropGifts, the Rocket-Internet backed Wrapp clone that we first introduced you to last month, has just started its aggressive global expansion.

The social gifting app, which started with a German and UK version, is now also available in France, the Netherlands and Italy. According to one of our sources, DropGifts will also launch in South Africa and India within the next few weeks.

Since this type of an aggressive expansion strategy is typical for Samwer-backed startups (for example Wimdu, GlossyBox, CityDeal), we’re not surprised to see DropGifts’ recent international roll-out. The other thing we’re not surprised about is the fact that DropGifts offers its users gifts from Samwer-backed companies like GlossyBox, Zalando and Groupon.

DropGifts is headquartered in Berlin. Like the Swedish original Wrapp, the ‘clone’ company offers a social gifting tool that allows people to give personalised (free or paid) gift cards to their friends through Facebook. Since Wrapp was founded in the first half of 2011, the originator still has a little head start.

Find this interesting? If you’d like to find out more about Wrapp, make sure to check out the interview we did with the co-founder and CEO Hjalmar Winbladh back in November 2011.
