Our mission is to help others find products that are well-designed, good quality, unique, value for money, fun to have, and most importantly, something that will bring a smile. We particularly dislike white elephants and junk or space hoggers.
HuntSimply aims to fill this need from a growing number of people who want to find relevant products, tips and ideas in an efficient manner. By combining (1) a big data semantic technology that helps you quickly search with, (2) web experts that crawl the net for the latest products, brilliant inventions, odd gadgets, unusual designs etc, as well as (3) a community of people like you, HuntSimply aims to make the Web smarter for everyone.
We believe in building relationships with people (rather than transactions), so HuntSimply aims to create an experiential online shopping experience with a personal touch.
Who Are We?

We created HuntSimply as we were not very good gift buyers. We struggled whenever we had to buy gifts, and often made last minutes purchases from the stores, and sometimes ended up not giving anything! We needed a place to look for good gift ideas and tips but are not overwhelmed with too many products.
We spend long hours earning a pay-check so that we can give our family a better living condition and yeah..things they want. but we are often too busy to truly enjoy these with them. We have seen people chasing promotions (and stepping on others to get to where they want to be); all to increase their means to consume, though the truth is that there is no correlation between increased income and increased happiness (beyond a certain income).
We also start to see people being more demanding, because they think they have work hard to be treated better. In some less developed countries, we also see many youths owning smartphones; buying things beyond their means and think nothing of running up debt.
So is HuntSimply encouraging consumerism? Promoting consumption is different from encouraging consumerism. Consuming “stuff” isn’t bad. What is bad is the meaning we derive from it. If we let things define who we are and we compare our “stuff” with others, we are saying that we are not good enough, and our worth is in how others perceive us.
On the other hand, we believe in communitarian and transcendental pursuits, meaning investing in relations with the community (including family and friends) as well as spiritual activities (including contemplative and artistic ones). We do not wish to promote “wants”, but rather gifts that can encourage social activities or conversations, health, and those with educational values etc.
