This unconventional gift is perfect for any occasion

The next time you’re not sure what to gift a loved one, Cardalloon might be exactly what they didn’t know they needed. 

Cardalloon is the world’s first auto-inflating balloon surprise. The unconventional present is delivered straight to the recipient’s door — making it the perfect contactless gift during lockdown. Each Cardalloon arrives in a box with a personalized message. Then, at the hit of a button, a whimsical balloon instantly inflates before your eyes. 

“Make sure someone has a phone handy because you’re going to want to post their reaction,” the company promises

There is a broad selection of balloons in the line. Everything from emojis and birthday wishes to pride flags and graphic text is available. You can also shop by occasion, like Valentine’s Day, Christmas and birthdays. 

Cardalloon even has a “Balloon Take Back Program” where you can send back your used balloons and receive $5 off your next order. Balloons can be hazardous to the environment, so it’s pretty cool that you can make sure these get reused.
