Editor’s Pick: The Most Unique Personalised Gifts In India

Looking to make someone significant in your life feel special? Personalised gifting is the way to go!

Gifting — a tradition so ancient, its history can be traced back to the pre-civilisation era of mankind. Prevalent in cultures all around the world, the art of gifting has evolved with time and today, it’s the preferred method to express one’s gratitude, affection, and love. In the recent past, however, there has been a sudden surge in personalised gifting in India, which brings us to our question: what is it about personalisation that makes it universally appealing? Perhaps it’s the fact that you went an extra mile to make your kin feel loved and special. Perhaps it’s because it appeals to the emotions — you recognise and appreciate the thought and the painstaking efforts, thus making the gift a tad more significant than the others. Or perhaps, it’s simply a case of keeping up with the trends, which has its own charm too. Whatever may be your reason, if you’re looking for personalised gifting options, you’re at the right place. Given the rising demand for personalised gifts, we decided to sit down with our Editor to curate a list of 13 of the best, most unique personalised gifts you can find on the internet in India!
