Bored of gifting the usual bouquet of flowers or chocolates? With Rakhi round the corner, it is the time for brothers to pamper their sisters, and there’s a quick gifting solution at hand. The Gifts World Expo beginning in the city today can provide a few off-beat options to shopaholics.

From hi-tech gadgets and digital diaries to decorative items like photo albums, desktop accessories and paintings, there is a lot to choose from. Whether it’s your best friend’s 18th birthday bash, first date or just a special way of saying you care, don’t forget to choose an innovative gift to make someone feel special.

“Most people have a very demanding lifestyle which leaves little room for pampering themselves or their friends. We are trying to give a lot of innovative gifting options under one roof,” says Himani Gulati, director of the event. There are a range of gifting ideas
especially for girls — such as handbags, accessories, perfumes and watches to a personalised scrapbook with photographs and signed messages as a souvenir for lifetime.

There are household products and home appliances for those looking to give their home a new look. The men, on the other hand, can take a look at the office stationery, automation equipment and furniture. So here’s to creative gifting!
