Using Pinga to buy gifts

You might not have thought about this before, but Pinga is a great way to send last minute gifts to friends & family (provided they live in our service area!) All you have to do is select their address in the app, and then order as normal.

And since we send you e-receipts via email, you don’t have to worry about the receipt being left in the bag!

We’ve picked out a few gift ideas from our retailers which you can see below, to hopefully give you some inspiration.

So, for those times you’ve left gift-buying until the very last minute, or if you just want to surprise a loved one, reach for Pinga!

The gift of real coffee (for under £10)

Don’t let a loved one suffer instant coffee any longer. This Apollo 3 cup stovetop espresso maker is available in our new retailer, Hackney Fresh 🙂


Eco-friendly shampoo

Ditch the plastic and give the gift of solid, eco-friendly toiletries this year. Check out this solid shampoo bar available in Holland & Barrett!


A winter warmer 

Aged for 10 years, but delivered in 2 hours. We love a good contrast. Available from Co-op.


Fancy candle, at a not so fancy price

One of our new retailers, Mother Earth, stock this ‘Himalayan Amyris Cedarwood & Haiti Essential Oil’ candle, and it’ll only set you back £2.15. Win-win!


Give the gift of reading…

You’d be forgiven for thinking that we’re just a grocery delivery app at times, as this is by far our most popular category of shop. However we also offer delivery from a number of local retailers, including Pages of Hackney. Why not send a book as a gift? 🙂
