About Us

Our Mission

To change the Christmas Shopping season from one of the most painful and stressful experiences most people have, to an easy and simple process you can complete in hours.

I don’t know about you, but year after year I tell myself  “never again.”  Never again will I wait until the week before Christmas to get organized and get my shopping done.  Never again will I go out and buy a box of Christmas cards only to have them sit on my shelf in January unsent.  That is why we made Perfect Christmas, and the reason we launched 39 Friends.  Using the power of the Internet, Social networking and mobile devices, and together with excellent online and local retailers like Amazon, Think Geek, The Onion Store, Walmart, Bonanza, NetFlix, Stellar Coffee and others we are going to make Christmas different this time.  Special Gift Selections, super-easy shopping, super-easy organizing.

For those who try the Perfect Christmas Experience – Christmas will never be the same. We’ve got your back.

 

Who we are

David Cunningham – Co founder and most pathetic Christmas shopper ever

David  Cunningham

I started photo-etching circuit boards when I was 8, and at 11 was haunting the halls and computer science labs at the local college so much that I was invited by Professor Wayne Ayott to audit his software and hardware design courses.   I’m also the worst Christmas Shopper ever and the one who really needs Perfect Christmas the most!

I have been honored to receive many business, industry and leadership awards including being named an Exceptional Young Entrepreneur (Profit Magazine) and to the list of Who’s Who in Canadian Business.  The companies I started have been recognized as the Fastest Growing companies in Canada (Profit Magazine), as the Fastest Growing North American Technology Companies (Deloitte & Touché) and named as a Top 100 Innovator and Leader by SDTimes in every year from 2003 to 2011.

My background is in M&A and Corporate Development and my specialty is as a business development specialist for growth-oriented companies.

I worked as the co-founder of the venture capital group for a large bank. I have read hundreds of business plans and know the difference between strong plans and weak ones. I have extensive experience creating proforma financial statements, and financial modeling and forecasting.

When David and I started talking about the concept of having a Perfect Christmas, I lit up like… well… a Christmas Tree!  what an amazing opportunity to help million of people the world over have a truly enjoyable experience during Christmas.
