I have gifted pearls to many people many times. I always bought them from Mangatrai, where you get 30 to 40% corporate discount. Many of my friends suggested to buy from Charminar area where the price is cheaper. But I am not sure where exactly I can shop in that area, so I kept to Mangatrai. As per my friends, Mangatrai Madhapur is better than any of its other branches.
You can buy pearl sets(ear rings and chain), bracelets, etc.
- Handbag/Wallet/backpack/make up purse:
This wallet is customized with “The secret of Walter Mitty” movie quote.
Saree, T-shirt, dress material, khadi,etc

- Crazy stuff:
The thing about crazy items like this is you don’t feel like spending your own money on them, because you feel that you are wasting your money on spending on something like that. That’s why it’s awesome when somebody gifts those crazy items to you.

Phew, that was a long list and it’s not even the end. DIY and customized gifts in Part-3.
Remember friends, it’s all about giving and receiving and sharing and having…and giving..
