We’ve all been in­volved in a groupgift sit­u­a­tion, whether it’s for a birth­day, wed­ding, farewell or a hen party. Ei­ther you’re the one who has the bril­liant idea and has to co­or­di­nate ev­ery­thing or you’re the for­get­ful one who pitches in at the last minute. For ev­ery time there’s an easy process, there are five times when some­thing goes wrong. En­ter South African online com­pany candy­stick. The ser­vice is sim­ple – you open an ac­count and in­vite your friends, then ev­ery­one can pitch in online. Af­ter that, the “Candy­box” of money is de­liv­ered to the lucky re­cip­i­ent – ei­ther to pur­chase from some of candy­stick’s part­ners or as a cash amount.

It’s easy-peasy and slicker than col­lect­ing money in an en­ve­lope. Un­for­tu­nately, the list of candy­stick part­ners is lim­ited, but with a florist, wine and spirit mer­chant, as well as a gift store on board so far, there’s no doubt you can find a per­fect gift.
