Twigs and Tales
Ccollege mates Shruti Parakh, 25, and Ragini Thard, 25, graduates from Singapore Management University, hit upon the idea of a one-stop gifting store when one of them wanted a very specific birthday gift and couldn't find the right one. Parakh realised that there was no one in the city doing gifts quite the way they has seen in Singapore stores. Parakh was always into DIY and personalised gifts but this idea struck home. Just two months old in the city, Twigs and Tales is a cute store full of odds and ends that can make for seemingly thoughtful personalised gifts but with minimal effort from the buyer.
“Unless someone wants something specific in apparel or fashion accessories, we curate and create a unique hamper for each client,” says Thard. Popular picks from the store include slogan cushions and pillows and bar accessories for men. “Buckets of wine or beer bottles are quite popular too,” says Parakh. They also have a variety of pretty wrapping paper, beautiful envelopes and dainty ribbons that can make your gift look like a million bucks.
PRICE Rs 1,750 onwards depending on the price of the gift
AT Twigs and Tales, 22 Park Street
