Our social lives have become hectic these days and gifting has become quite a trend. Invitations to housewarming lunches, birthday parties and casual celebration dinners call for inexpensive yet fun gifts for some of the hosts. For example, items like vases, flower stands, etc. are not very costly yet beautiful. Some unique home décor items are also used for gifting on various occasions these days.
Every day numerous people purchase things as presents. Recently, I was approached by bigsmall.in to order a few gifts from their website and write about my experience and review the items I received. So, if you love gifting, this review is for you!
Selecting and finalizing the items was time-consuming. There were so many items available. Some of the categories were Valentine’s Day sets, home décor, travel, jewellery, etc. It took me a day to finalize what I wanted to buy. Once I did, the payment process was quick. Thereafter, I received a WhatsApp message and an email as confirmation of my purchase.
The package took a few days to reach me. All the items were packed well in a sturdy box.
I ordered three items. One was for my husband and the other two for myself! The PS I Love You lapel pin was unique and apt for my hubby who is a Photoshop pro. I smiled the moment I saw it and knew that I had to get it.
The travel leather passport cover is handmade and beautifully done with the map of the world on its back. But I wouldn’t recommend keeping credit cards or IDs in it as they could slip out. Only two passports can fit inside with one hardcover of each passport in either pocket (as shown above).
I love books and, the next time I take a trip, my vintage travel journal is going to have loads of stuff written in it for memory. The quality of the material was quite good. I love the antique look (my all-time favourite theme) and the anchor bookmark dangling from it.
I was contemplating getting the vintage key journal, too, but, the anchor and ship’s wheel (on the one I got) caught my eye. I also liked the little handcrafted elephant stool, the exquisite bookends and retro stationery holders. Perhaps, I will get them on my next purchase.
The gift sets could be improved to include more than just photo frames, mugs and lapel pins. Otherwise, there are some fun and quirky gifts and home décor on this website.
Online shopping has its advantages. And websites like these have made it so easy to decorate our homes with unique items. There are plenty of gift items (fun, unique and quirky) to choose from, too. So, if you have a close friend in another part of India, I’m sure you will find something fun to gift her/him on their next birthday. FYI – Bigsmall.in delivers all over India.
