Facebook Launches Gifts For a Second Time

A new iOS application was released on Monday, two years after Facebook’s failed Gifts feature, allowing American users to send friends real-life gifts on their phones.

From the Events section, Facebook allows you to view the upcoming birthdays of your friends and, by clicking a Gift icon beside their names, send them gifts.
The gifts available include a beer making kit, chocolate celebration pops and personalised cards – users don’t even need to know their friend’s physical address to send them.
The application also features changes to the Facebook messenger service and allows users to upload multiple photos from mobile devices at one time.
Facebook have re-invited the press to their Gifts event in New York City after it had to be rescheduled in expectation of Hurricane Sandy.
