About 15Gifts

Limitless choice isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. After a point, adding more options gets overwhelming. It stops us choosing at all. Or leaves us regretting the choices we make.

Here at 15Gifts, we’re obsessed with the psychology of choice. Studying the key elements that drive people to make confident choices on the high street, and bringing those qualities into the digital world through intelligent decision engine technology.

Today we power thousands of confident consumer choices every day across some of the largest brands in the UK including O2, Virgin Media, EE, Sky, The Times and BT. With every engine interaction, we’re learning more about customers, gathering insights and powering more and more accurate recommendations.
