Gossip Monger To Animal Lover: Gifts Under INR 500 For Every Type Of Friend


    This one's mainly for our little social butterflies. Or those folks who know absolutely everyone in town.  You know, like friends of friends of friends. Or those who are legit invited to all parties and social gatherings. Most of you either are one of them or sure know many like these in your circle. 

    Now, if you fit in the former category, we know the struggle. Zillion birthdays, parties, festive gatherings (think Diwali parties or Secret Santa) and the list goes on and on. And in such cases, gifting kinda becomes annoying. Yep, we know you love them, but it also adds up to your spending. But who says thoughtful gifts have to be super expensive. While, how much you decide to spend is super subjective, we've asked a few folks around (friends, colleagues, etc.) and got to know that more or less people are willing to spend approximately INR 500 - INR 1000 for gifts.

    So, we've made life (and gifting) super easy for you and rounded up a few gifting ideas which are under INR 500. They're thoughtful, will be loved by your friends and won't burn your pocket. Win-win!  

    Here's a list of gifting ideas under INR 500:

    For Your Crazy Bhukad Friend

    Mini Happiness Box

    Of course, there's a lot (and a lot) you can gift your foodie friends, but we settled on this amazing mini happiness box. A few of LBB's folks sent across these mini-jars to their loved ones, and it's now officially a go-to for everyone when it comes to a thoughtful yet budget-friendly gifting option. 

    They'll remember you every time they open these jars of sweetness. These spreads come in five flavours including Vanilla Honey, Orange, Mango Jalapeno, Wholegrain Mustard and Rasberry Strawberry (our favourite). Each jar is 40 grams. Depending on how bhukhad your friend is, it will last them a good three to four months. 

    Price: INR 360

    Psst: They'll love the fact that they can reuse the five glass jars once the spreads are over. (haha!)

    You can also opt from these amazing snack hampers your foodie friends will love. 

    For That Friend Who LOVES Gossip

    Gossip Monger Wooden Medal

    Let's just accept it. Life and social gatherings without them are so boring. And they deserve something special to keep up updated with all the gossip. Who's shifting to the States, who's getting married, who recently broke up, screenshots of spicy conversations, and much more *wink wink*! 

    We've found a perfect gift for those gossip mongers in your life. A customised and chic wooden finish medal which says 'Biggest Gossip Monger'. Make them feel special for the public service they're offering you (as Rachel Green would say).

    Price: INR 499.

    #LBBTip: there are four design options available. And you can get it further customised as well (additional charges for that) 

    The One Who's Polar Opposite To You

    Yep. From bluntly telling you when you're wrong to almost always having a fight choosing one restaurant/cuisine - every social circle has an example of these. But, deep down you know you guys are like burger and fries. Better together. 

    And what could be more ideal than this uber-cool graphic frame? It's just perfect and will make them love you even more. And it's super compact and versatile. Can be hung on the wall or simply set on a table.
