The FINANCIAL -- FedEx Corp. is unveiling a unique way to help customers deliver joy following a recent survey that uncovered the emotional connection consumers have with both sending and receiving gifts during the holidays.
According to research conducted by FedEx, nearly 80 percent of respondents said sending gifts to friends and family brings them joy and makes them feel more connected to loved ones. Shipping gifts gives people who are apart an opportunity to share holiday traditions – even from a distance.
FedEx is bringing this concept to life through its mobile gifting truck experience. This Dec. 5, consumers will have the opportunity to visit the truck on New York’s iconic Fifth Ave. and select among four specially-curated gifts across various categories, while supplies last, including a gift option for the traveler, music lover, foodie and home décor aficionado.
TV personality and entrepreneur Catherine Lowe is teaming up with FedEx to help curate the collection of gifts, including selecting one for the home décor aficionado. Her pick, a candle with a soothing scent, will be among the four options to select from at the mobile gifting truck.
FedEx will ship the selected gift item to a loved one in the continental U.S. Consumers in the New York area can visit the FedEx mobile gifting truck on the corner of Fifth Ave. and E 52nd St. between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. EST to select a gift and ship the feeling of joy to a loved one.
