Event description



Giftzza is the most immersive curated gift company in NYC! We hand-deliver personalized gifts around NYC with fun and whimsical delivery experiences (Singing telegram, Santas, Elves, The Easter Bunny, the Spinning Dreidel, Etc!) We also ship worldwide! In anticipation of the holiday season, we wanted to share our love of local business by creating the Giftzza Family Scavenger Hunt so that we can experience the joy of giving and gratitude this holiday season. Participants will race across the Upper East Side with their families solving clues leading to the next location all the while creating their own Giftzzas filled with bespoke items from our Scavenger Sponsors. Families can then dedicate their Giftzza at the finish line to someone they love and enjoy the gift of giving together as a family. ’Tis Better to Give Than Receive and You can experience that and more with the Giftzza Family Scavenger Hunt! Give an Experience - Give a Giftzza!


At the start line, each team will be given an empty Giftzza box, a scavenger hunt map and 4 Giftzza Gratitude capes.

The goal is to solve the clues, find the participating stores and fill up the Giftzza box along the scavenger hunt route. Each store will provide each team with an item.

Teams will take photos and hashtag #GIVEAGIFTZZA or #GIFTZZASCAVENGER and hashtag the name of the store to show support for their local business.

They will get more clues and bonus points from each participating store.

At the finish line, each team will dedicate their Giftzza to someone they are grateful for.

We are inviting families all over NYC to join us as we create the ultimate Giftzza gift box filled with New York's favorites. Families will travel to New York's favorite food and gift spots (20 block radius) across the city and Instagram, post and tweet their progress along the way.


AT THE FINISH LINE, they can choose one person or friend that they designate as the recipient of this GIFT.

​Steeped in generosity and gratitude, this hunt will take families on an experiential adventure to their most beloved spots and some new favorites, while allowing small businesses to benefit from the publicity, foot traffic, social media and exposure from the event and more importantly, teaching kids the importance of GRATITUDE.


In addition to teaching kids the importance of Gratitude and supporting local businesses, we strongly encourage kids to give back to the community! We have proudly partnered with the Make-A-Wish Metro NY foundation and a portion of our proceeds will go to them.
