Who doesn’t love to give and receive gifts? And since the festive season is about to begin, gifting becomes a part of all the fun. Start planning well in advance if you really want your gift to be appreciated. I start quite early on. Making list of people keeping in mind their likes and choices. It is all these little gestures after all that helps build a better relation .So always try to personalize your gifts. There is nothing that can beat that!
Well, sometimes it does become difficult to think of various items to gift. Let me try and make it, at least partially easy for you.
The thought behind gifting should primarily be to choose gifts that the receiver will appreciate.
1. Something that fits his taste.
2. Gifts that can be useful to them.
3. Gifts that is classy yet affordable for your pocket too!
So here is my take on gifts that one can buy without the fear and anxiety of not being liked by its future owner.
1. Pretty cushions
One can never go wrong on cushions .The more the merrier. They come in various shapes and sizes. During the festive times you can keep the cushion covers a little ethnic by using bold and bright colours. Pretty zari borders, traditional motifs like paisleys will work well. Subsequently, if you are one who loves a little quirkiness, cushions do come with funny quotes that can keep your conversation with guests interesting.
The best way to use cushions in your décor is by having an assorted set. Add a dash of colour with cushions or a throw pillow and completely transform the look of any room. If it is a small seating area, let the cushion be bold, big and blingy and you are sure to create a strong and dramatic look! A bigger seating like an Indian bhaitak or a couch can accommodate many cushions of various colours and sizes. Let the décor speak through your vibrant cushions!
So now you know that if you are being invited, your hosts are of the entertaining type and they will surely love your cushions as gifts!
Vases are a must. You may store them away during normal days but come occasions and be sure to display them on your mantle or your centre table. Vases with fresh flowers accentuate the space and add a festive glow .You can go for taller vases in case you want to place low stemmed flowers and vice versa. Faux flowers also look amazingly beautiful .You can go for ceramic, wooden and glass vases.
3. Bed elements
Bed spread, duvets, quilts and the like can be all -time favourites. These are very functional and useful gifts and the receiver would sure love them. If you are aware of the taste and choices of the person whom you are about to gift, it makes the task further easier. Market is flooded with all kinds of patterns and colours.
Floor lamps, table lamps, pendant lamps there are too many options available. They increase the décor quotient of any room when bought and placed thoughtfully. And we Indians are fond of light and warmth. Most of the gatherings at home happen during evening and thus gifting a lamp will only enhance the overall look and serves as a welcome addition.
5. Brass love
I love brass artifacts. I feel they are like statement pieces. However contemporary, every Indian home is bound to have a prayer room where in we have brass diyas and lanterns.
Brass can add that much needed glimmer, shine and grandeur to your interiors. One can gift brass artifacts, small lamps and lanterns, Pooja plates, brass vases… and so on. The list is really endless.
