The holidays are a wonderful time of year to be nice. All those cups of hot chocolate and fruit cakes have us hugging strangers and filling doorsteps with festive boxes of holiday cheer. It’s the most wonderful time of the year, yall. But a new app is making it easier to be nice all year round.
Moment is designed to help people act on the nice thoughts they have everyday.. For instance, my friend just got a huge promotion at work, one she has been waiting on for a very long time, and I want to do more than just send her a text. It can be hard to decide exactly what gift is perfect for celebrating occasions like this, and you KNOW even the most thoughtful millennials never have wrapping paper handy, so the nice thoughts get lost in the shuffle. With Moment, I choose who I want to be nice to, and Moment nails the perfect what to deliver at the perfect time. It’s the most thoughtful way to make being nice practically thoughtless. See what I did there?
So, with Moment, the next time my friend is out shopping at Peachtree Battle, for example, she’ll receive a push notification with my congratulatory message and also info on the 5+ merchants in the shopping center where she can go to pick up a little gift on me. It’s a fun easy experience for the sender and a seamless and magical experience for the receiver. Raise your glass of ‘nog to the best way to be nice.
The lovely ladies of Moment thought I had been especially nice this year, so I got the opportunity to take Moment for a test spin at Peachtree Battle (can you tell I spend a lot of time there?) I was walking along, just being my super nice self, when I got the surprise Moment notification! The surprise came at the perfect time and place. I popped into Woo Cosmetics and had a ball getting my makeup done (only $50, yall!!) and picked up a couple presents …for myself. I used my moment app to walk away with something special, and it was so….nice.
They are operating only in Atlanta now, but will be expanding to new cities soon! Keep checking back for updated lists. Until then, sources*** say Atlanta is now the nicest city in America! Thanks, Moment! ***note: the source here is Meg Daws, editor, PeachtreeRoadies.com.
Okay, I’m also going to be real with you here…you missed the shipping deadline for sending several of your besties Christmas gifts this year, right? You’re not alone. Make it look intentional with Moment. They are partnering with great merchants at over 500+ locations in Atlanta. Don’t worry, I won’t tell…#hohoho

Thanks to the wonderful team at Moment for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own expect when the Moment team told me I am nice. That’s their opinion, and also not backed by fact. But really, friends, this is our favorite gifting app.
