Holiday gift guides and gift for home ideas are in plenty. But what’s unique about my curated list is, I have tried to categorize them by budget, to save you idea fatigue. Dive into the list or bookmark this, to make shopping for gifts for friends, fun and carefree.
When autumn comes can winter be far behind? The only time in West Bengal when your hair will not feel sticky, and there is a pleasant nip in the air, is also the time when you shop till you drop. If Durga Pujo and Diwali were not enough, Christmas gifts are seamlessly integrated into the urban India Gifting list. While you gift clothes and personal use items, gifts for the home are unique.
What could be a good gift for the home? This gift guide has a little bit of seasonal element, but most of it can easily be given as a housewarming gift. A tricky question if you are on a budget. That’s why I decided to find gifts at a different budget. Some can also be given to employees in their holiday gift hampers.
