Treat A Mate That’s Doing It Tough In Lockdowns With Digital Gifting App Shouta

There are two limited-edition lockdown gifts on offer.

Sometimes, it’s the little things that count. That’s where Shouta, a digital gifting app, comes in handy. Shouta lets you treat your friends to something like a glass of wine or a meal, without you having to leave your home. Through the app, Shouta is a way to show someone you’re thinking of them without breaking the bank. And just think, wouldn’t that be nice to receive?

The Shouta app is perfect for lockdown.

Download Shouta and treat your friends to a Quarantini or a Quarancino. With the Quarantini, they’ll be able to enjoy a takeaway cocktail from their favourite nearby restaurant. Meanwhile, the Quarancino is a perfect way to give your friend a coffee from their local café.

There are other gifts you can send too, like a sugary treat, a manicure, a meal or a movie ticket. If you think your friend would like something different, you can also get creative and customise your own gift. Simply choose an amount you want to spend, add a personalised message and send it to your friend.

Then, they will receive a text with a link so they can access their Shout.

Options for gifts start from as little as $5.

“We’ve seen a surge in Aussies looking for innovative ways to connect over lockdown,” said Carly Shamgar, co-founder of Shouta. “With the rise of nano-gifting, we want people to know that thoughtfulness doesn’t need to be expensive, time-consuming, or boring.”


Shout a Worker Campaign

Some industries have done it particularly tough during Melbourne’s lockdowns. That’s why for August, Shouta is encouraging users to treat retail, hospitality and healthcare workers. Every week, for 48 hours, a new industry will be highlighted.

You’re invited to Shout:

  • Hospitality workers from August 11 to 13.
  • Retail workers from August 18 to 20.
  • Healthcare workers from August 25 to 27.

During August, there will be 50 coupons up for grabs each week. Each coupon is worth $5, enough for a cup of coffee. Simply Shout a friend in the industry, and the team will throw in the $5 coupon. Just use the code HOSPO5, RETAIL5, or HEALTH5 at checkout.

“We’re encouraging everyone to jump on board and Shout a hospitality, retail or healthcare worker a digital gift to let them know they’re appreciated,” said Shamgar. “We know this is an incredibly hard time for not only these industries, but all Australians suffering through lockdowns and a little thought can go a long way.”

You can download Shouta through the App Store or Google Play. Learn more about the app here.
