SPRING FOR THE HOLIDAYS: Mobile marketplace Spring is ringing in the holiday season early this year. Today, “Unwrap Spring” will roll out with a gift tab with themes like “Home for the Holidays,” “Gifts Under $[a certain price point]” and “Treat Yo’Self.”
The app will also unveil a slew of pop-up shops for its second holiday season, ranging from “Gadgets + Gizmos” to “Spring Bundles,” which contain Spring staffs’ favorite things. Custom wrapping paper prints will live all over the app, and be available for purchase.
“When we thought about what the holiday season meant and talked to our customers, it kept coming back to unwrapping gifts and discovering new things that are out of the ordinary,” said Alan Tisch, cofounder and chief executive officer of Spring. In addition to working with ShopBazaar, Mashable, Violet Grey, Andy Heart, Dani Song, and Justin Livingston on publishing their gift picks, Tisch was adamant about including a wide variety of items, from food and phone accessories retailing for around $10 to a $14 million diamond.
