Every Bollywood geek’s dreamland

Where: Indian Art Bazaar, Hauz Khas Village

For friends that breathe and walk Bollywood, there cannot be a better gift. A collection of movie posters from the ’70s or a three-feet-long hand-painted Mughal-e-Azam poster, the store is a treat to the eyes, which makes it a win-win for both you and the receiver.

Haven of handmade gifts

Customised gifts bring a smile on anyone’s face. So be it handwritten typography on a globe or a miniature message bouquet, there is nothing that they can’t do! Need we say more?

Functionality with quirk


Quirky and fascinating gifts that are also useful make for a great combo. This website is giving us creative gifting ideas, like a decision-maker paperweight that will spruce up your friend’s desk (and life!).

Home decor that wows

Where: Gingerline Home Décor on Facebook

Whether it’s a bedside lamp made using your favourite book, or a collection of test tubes with flowers, Gingerline transforms a home into a wonderland.

Straps that empower


Up the ante in the gifting game with hand-embroidered camera or guitar straps for the compulsive photographer or the music enthusiast. Bonus – they work closely with artisans from Kutch, providing them a fair platform to put their talent out there. Feel good already?
