It is difficult to miss the pink signboard of Mesmerize which is located right opposite Archies on Luz Church Road in Mylapore A family of mom, dad and their aged mom sit in this tiny gifting store, greeting you inside as you step in. Upon chatting, we found out that this store has been around for 18 years and offers gifting options for all age groups.
Their greeting cards made us go 'aww', and we could not resist buying a few of them for our family and friends. From birthday cards, wedding anniversary cards, cards to uncles and aunties to retirement cards and season's greetings - Mesmerize will take you back to the good old days when you gave greeting cards as gifts and made the days of the people in your life. Prices for cards start from as low as INR 60.
Not just cards, they also have stuffed toys, flowers vases, luxury pens, watches, sunglasses, coffee mugs, gift wrapping papers, cute pillows, designer calendars, ceramic idols, wall hangings and more. It is amazing how Mesmerize has lasted this long, considering the growth of online brands with pop culture designs. We particularly loved their unstuffed teddy bear made of artificial roses holding a rose. It comes in red and baby pink colour and will be a perfect gift for bae. It is priced at INR 500.
