Gift something different

Gift something different

Looking for those gifts for your loved ones now that Diwali is really here? Break through the clutter of run-of-the-mill gifts and surprise your friends and family with some interesting and hatke items.

Add that personal touch to your gifts by getting your gifts customised according to the taste of your loved ones. The gesture would make the occasion really special and reflect your care and affection!

Take your pick from picture bite, an online platform which provides people with a facility of personalised gifts. Printing of photographs or custom messages are the mode of personalisation on gift items ranging from mugs, glow lights in dark frames, stones, crystals and cushions.

Move away from the bottle but opt for the cover instead! Beautiful and intricately patterned, embroidered champagne covers make for interesting and different gifts. Or you could choose a pack of gold plated playing cards available at jewellery and MMTC outlets. Instead of regular diyas, gift classy candle-stands or if silver is your obvious choice, you can choose an idol of Lord Ganesha or simply gift a coin of 10, 20, 50 or 100 gms - depending on your pocket.

Brass items are making a comeback too. The bush patterned light stand, brass diyas with 5, 7 or 9 wick space look beautiful and are easily available in emporiums. Made from cast brass, this makes for an interesting addition to home decor. Intricate designs and superlative craftsmanship mark this gift. Antique bronze finish adds an appeal of its own.

So, for all of you who want to make a statement opt for these gifts rather than just a good old mithai ka dabba or a dry fruit pack.
