No matter how many Diwalis have gone by or how many Christmases have you seen, the joy of celebrating with friends and family never diminishes. What really does perplex you, sometimes, is what to gift, each year on each occasion to each person. 

And like each e-magazine worth its salt, we have our very own gift guide that will hopefully make your task easier, leaving you more time to actually enjoy. 

That person with a magnifying glass

Harakh Haveli Black Flat Satin Clutch

A pinch, a word, a stitch. There is always that one person in the inner circle who likes to get into the intricacies of everything. The detail oriented, the keen-eyed, the lover of all things handcrafted. And if it’s a woman, she’ll dote over the Harakh Haveli Flat Black Satin Clutch. As essential as an LBD, this black clutch will certainly come in handy. But what makes it a conversation-starter is the crisscross embroidery design that is done with a gold thread. Yes, literally made of gold, this purse utilises the ancient Indian art of zardosi to make it an impressive piece. Trust us, you can’t go wrong with this bag!

The minimalism advocate

Ikkis Balti Vase

If simplicity rules the roost for someone you know, who also appreciates the natural beauty of things, the Ikkis Balti Vase will surely delight them. Inspired by an Indian bucket, but reimagined using marble and brass, this vase truly gives the centerstage to the blooms, while adding its own modern touch to the surroundings. A delicate balance between shades, materials and clean silhouettes, the Ikkis Balti Vase will make any décor enthusiast giddy with happiness!

The fashion darer

Devina Juneja Cord Kimono

There’s always one of those in the family. This person can wear the whackiest of things and still look uber cool. Or wear something extremely simple and yet look glamourous. Chances are that this person has anything and everything in their wardrobe. But this Cord Kimono by Devina Juneja is a piece which we haven’t seen much around yet. A simple constructed jacket with leather accents on sleeves, it is dressy, daring, unusual, yet unpretentious. A sure winner!

You’ll go down in history with a halo (that’s the imaginer in your family thinking!). A versatile chair with a bright mien, it is an archetype reading nook chair. Ideal for small spaces, this recliner does the job without being too weighty. Perfect for the college student in your life!

The vegan, sustainable, planet devotee

Baula Elephant Bag appleskin

If the pandemic has taught us anything, it’s to take care of ourselves by taking care of the planet. Even the ignorant have now acknowledged the need of addressing issues such as waste management, sustainability, fast fashion consumption, and more. And if someone you know is incredibly passionate about these subjects, then Baula’s Elephant bag made in Appleskin is ideal. Baula takes inspiration from the animal kingdom for its designs, and sources plant-based leather alternatives for its creations. It uses appleskin, for example, to make this Elephant bag. You are not going to miss the leather! And neither is she.
