In the pursuit of being unique and standing out, if you have run out of gifting ideas, we found you Mela, a cute little store in R City Mall in Ghatkopar that deals in all things ethnic, and make for a superb gift.
Nestled cosily between two giants on either side on the 2nd floor of R City Mall, Mela is a one stop shop for Indian handicrafts in all its glory. From fashion accessories and home decor to art and craft- we found it all right here.
If you're looking to amp up your living room , pick up ethnic cushion covers that are priced at only INR 200 and upwards. While you're at it, you might also want to check out some antique pieces for your side table (you can gift it to someone too). We picked up the brass auto-rickshaw for INR 1,500 even without a second thought!
They also house a brilliant vintage collection of utensils (collectors ahoy!) such as bottle openers, lunchboxes and chapatti boxes that might be hard to hunt for elsewhere in the city. The collection will cost you anything between INR 500-INR 6,000 approx. depending on what you choose.
For the ladies, they have a mindblowing collection of handcrafted jewellery that would go well with your outfit during the festive season. Just as we were about to bill our purchases, we chanced upon some gorgeous ethnic bags with such intricate design work that we couldn't help but pick up for INR 2,000. The prices of all their products depends upon the intricacy of designs.
You can choose a few gift-worthy items from here, and we're sure you're going to be acing the gifting game this season.
