Wrapped with Love - A Guide to Creative Gift IdeasInspiration Corner
The last few months of the year are full of festivities, weddings and celebrations. And that means, you’re constantly searching for unique gifts, whether it’s for an art connoisseur-in-the-making, or a thoughtful party planner who looks into every small detail; someone who devours world food and all fine things, or a newly-wed couple building their first home together.
Here’s your guide to some of the most personal, classy, and different gift ideas that will make this season special for your loved ones.
1. Art Limited
Celebrate creativity this festive season with our ‘Limited Edition Signed Prints’ by world-renowned Indian artists like S.H. Raza, A Ramachandran, Arpita Singh and Anjolie Ela Menon. Not only do prints make beautiful gifts, they also hold investment value (by virtue of being signed, and limited edition), making them meaningful and personal. Our prints would make the perfect gift for that someone special who appreciates art or is doing up their new home, as long as you are somewhat familiar with their taste. Explore our amazing collection of prints and get inspired!

2. Date with Food
If it’s festive, it’s got to be all about food. And, rightly so. Food always resonates with any celebration. But sometimes, we don’t know what to do with the surplus sweet goodies we receive all at once, and we just end up recycling them! So this time, why not find something so special for the food connoisseurs in your gifting list, that they won’t want to rid themselves of it? Think flavoured honey, luxury marzipan, molecular gastronomy kit, herbal tea collection, or a gourmet food platter complete with jelly, jams and spice. We bet these food gifts will be a welcome break from the regular mithais and dry fruits. And the best thing about them, is they are non-perishable and last much longer.
3. Sculpted Out
Be it for a wedding, housewarming, or any landmark event, a piece of sculpture makes for a unique giveaway for close family, dear friends, or even business associates. A beautiful sculpture or figurine is something to be treasured for a lifetime, as its appeal will never date or wear out. Explore the collection of sculptures at Artisera, which includes pieces inspired by India’s rich history.
4. Set the Table
Crystal ware and dinnerware make for timeless gifts – classics that will never go out of style. This festive season, select from our range of beautiful glass sets, intricate crystal pieces, and a collection of plates, mugs and trays, that will add a touch of elegance to the homes of your loved ones. Explore our glassware and dinnerware collections to find what you love best.

5. Bottled Up
A great bottle of Scotch, bourbon or wine is a classic gift idea that can hardly go wrong. But how does one make such a gift stand out? Simple – by picking out something that is lesser known, but really good. Take Amrut single malt whiskey, for example. Few people know about Amrut – but it’s an Indian whiskey that has won several global awards and is consistently ranked one of the best in the world. Something unique from the world of liquor will always be special to those who love their booze.
As a sign off, here’s a tip from Denmark based gift blogger, Sarita Rajiv, of The Orange Gift Bag, “Personalise your gifts with a good gift wrap. The wrapping is like the icing on a cake. It shows you made an extra effort and it also enhances the visual appeal.”
