Hello people! Friendship Day is just around the corner, have you planned anything yet? Ah I know, most of us are either caught up in a busy life, or live away from one another in different cities. So while meeting up may not always be possible, we do hold those darlings close in our hearts. And as maturity catches up with us, we seldom speak up of how we love them, and miss them. Bygone are the teens when showering friends with gifts was more than just a norm. Friendship bands, greetings and chocolates were greatly exchanged and cherished.
But while meeting up physically may not always be possible, how about sending across tokens of love in form of gifts to those friends? The advent of e-commerce websites and subscription boxes has made it so easy to shop for gifts. I have a few gifting ideas for all types of buds, whether near or far. Read on to know!
For the Bibliophilic Friend :
The easiest yet the finest gift you can ever give a bibliophilic friend are books, or even better, go for book subscription boxes. There are a few really amazing book subscription boxes available in India, which not only curate the latest and best releases, but also include cool bookish merchandise with each box. If you’re on a high budget, go ahead and present a Kindle (in case she doesn’t already possess one). Or order a set of books for her from Amazon and send it across. Easy-peasy! An icing on the cake would be if you customize the gift. Try adding a fragrant candle, or some quirky stationery along with the set of books, check the option of gift-wrap while checking out on amazon, and send it. She will love the whole of it, and I repeat, nothing makes better gifts than books! Read more
Hi everyone! This post could have meant specifically something for Mother’s Day. Most things in this post do actually imply that. Except that it’s not. 🙂 How about a little something for your mother every once in a while? Her children are her priorities, and so should be she for us. Most of us are caught up in the whirlwind of establishing our careers, doing every possible thing and dedicating a major part of our waking hours towards that. But what when we realize that our goals are no less important to our mothers as well? The realization is huge. They are pillars of strengthon which we build our well-being and future. We want to achieve successto make her feel proud. We do understand her need of feeling happy too. And we want to show her love. But how often are we able to do that?
I am a daughter too and feel no different from you. But I do have few simple ideas to pamper the most special lady of our lives. You don’t need a special occasion to put these into practice. All you need is a little time and space. These are what you could do for her whenever you feel like! 🙂 Read more
Hello beautiful people! Another Monday and most of us might be wondering how the weekend flew by so soon. 🙂 Nevertheless we have reached the end of the day like every other seemingly impossible Monday. On my way back from work today, a very small and rather mundane incident made me ponder on a spontaneous trail of thoughts.
This is what happened :
The wider roads in my city are divided in bylanes to get a better control on traffic. I was stuck in one of them for a long time while the other bylanes had cars speeding by. That’s when I steered my car to get onto the next lane because that was almost empty with no nearby cars. It is a common occurence and I’m sure I have encountered similar incidents innumerable times before. There was this SUV that was coming by in the lane I was trying my car to get into. I generally prefer avoiding getting into clashes, so I halted till the SUV passed by. But to my surprise the SUV gave a halt and made way for my car to take the lead. Read more
