Like everything else this year, gift giving is going to look a little different. Thankfully, DoorDash has just launched Gifting, a brand new way to share the food love with friends and family.

Gifting gives users the opportunity to send everything from treats to entire meals right away or at a pre-scheduled drop off time. It will be available across all stores on DoorDash and Caviar on iOS and Web for Android. To celebrate the launch, DoorDash is also offering a fun promotion.

From Nov. 19 through Nov. 27 (Black Friday) every customer who gives a gift of $20 or more through DoorDash or Caviar will get $10 off their next order. Additionally, for every gift of food given from Nov. 24 through Dec. 1 (Giving Tuesday) DoorDash will match all gifts by donating a meal to someone in need through Feeding America (up to 100,000 meals).

Gifting isn’t just about the holidays. You can also choose from plenty of digitally-animated cards for birthdays, congratulations, and many more, and create your own personalized message.

So how does it work?

Open open up your DoorDash or Caviar app and enter the address of the person you want to send a gift to. Choose your gift from the desired store, then at checkout click “send as a gift” to turn any order into a gift order.

Add the recipient’s name, select your card, fill in the giftee’s phone number, confirm your details, then place your order. Then all you have to do is share the info with your loved one––Gifting is on the way!

Want to help even more? If you’re the lucky recipient of a gift through DoorDash, pay it forward and support local businesses by using the hashtag #OpenForDelivery to share your fave foods and shops.
