It is that time of the year, when the heart shaped confetti pops up everywhere you look and love is in the air. With less than a week to Valentine ’s Day, if you need help to get the perfect gift for your better half, we are here to help.
A common misconception we often hear is that, designer labels are expensive and only fits a wedding shopping budget. The truth is, a lot of ‘gen next’ designers doing fabulous work, are priced a little above at what you spend at high street labels like Zara or Mango. Chances of seeing someone at brunch in the same Mango maxi as you are high, so instead we are looking at design labels to with one of kind pieces to add to our gift list! These designers have showcased at the Lakme Fashion Week and Amazon India Fashion Week and are priced below 10,000 INR (150 $). In this post, we are listing gift ideas for the man in your life.
