Gruhini’s Gifting Guide

A Perfect Dress, A Perfect Gift, and A Perfect Movie for a Great Christmas Holiday

Christmas and New Year’s is the time it’s difficult to control your urge to spend. You would probably hop from one mall to another to buy a perfect party outfit or you might be sitting on a couch to grab deals on Google’s online shopping festival (GOSF). Those with kids would have a long Santa Claus gift list to be done. If you are going crazy organizing all of this, follow The Great Gruhini’s three tips for a hassle-free preparation for the festivities.

Dress up to Kill with International Labels
Looking for a bright red cocktail dress for 31st night or a sweater dress for an office bash? Check out Macy.com, America’s largest retailer. During festival sales, there is a virtual stampede to get into its stores. Very few are aware that Macys.com is shipping to India also, although shipping charges are applicable. The site layout is simple and lets you decide quickly—women’s clothing is categorized according to size, occasion. For the brand savvy people, it has its online designer store too, Bloomingdales.com 

Get Santa Claus Home or Gift a Spa, a Salsa Class  

Its the great time to show you love and affection for your family.

Get a friend or boys in teens in your neighborhood to dress up like Santa Claus and give away goodies to your children. Or if you are in Delhi and nearby areas, hire a Santa Claus from Excitinglives.com for Rs 3450 and co-ordinate for gifts you want him to give away.

There is nothing like gifting a golf lesson, salsa class to your extended family members or for that matter indulging in a spa treatment for the two of you by gifting a spa package through Delightgifts.in. Call in parents or family to babysit kids and then you acknowledge their gesture by gifting them a fine dining experience at Taj.

While these gifts will reduce your bank balance, but it will be worth the happiness you get to see, so go ahead and don’t think twice!!!
