    Is a revolution in the gifting industry on its way?

    The Gift Industry which has now reached the 1000 Crore mark has become an immense market place and is growing with the various options and ideas coming up.The traditional ideas of gifting are now exhausted and new and unique ideas are now in vogue. Wittygift is the first ever company to enter the experiential gifting market in India. This concept is extremely famous in the Europe and has been recently got to India by Manvinder Kohli and Samuel Ziza in 2009. It gathers a range of experiences and categorizes them into Wellbeing, Culture, Leisure and Sports & Adventure.

    Gift is used as a means to strengthen relationships and studies show that experiences make us happier than possessions; experiences continue to provide happiness through memories long after the event occurred. So this concept of gifting an experience is expected to create a buzz in the gifting industry.

    The culture of gift giving was earlier restricted to festival season, however in recent times it has emerged as a tool for marketing, HR and PR Departments in all businesses and therefore the WittyGift boxes are now becoming popular among the corporates.

    How many of us want to go to the spa to pamper ourselves but are too lazy to go there? Or always dream of learning a few steps to shake a leg at the most awaited college or office party? Wouldn’t an experience box make your life easy as the first step is already taken for u! WittyGift has tapped this very need and is now tying up with the best suppliers in town to make your gift special and elite!

    So I guess clothes, bags, flowers, chocolates are soon going to become outdated. It is time to go beyond material gifts and try out something new and fun! WittyGift seems to be the formula for a perfect gift to leave an everlasting memory…

Whether you are a Home Decor Enthusiast, a Home Lover, or an Interior Decorator, we are sure some time you would have wondered…’Why isn’t there an online place where I can find everything I need, research it well before I buy it? Well…we’ve created one, and are sure our users will love it say the Founders of Home Ideaz! HomeIdeaz.in has been founded by an extremely talented Team, with a deep passion & love for Interiors & Home Decor.

    Our Vision:

    Co-Founder & Head Business Development, Ashokh Bharggav says – ‘The Indian Home Décor Market is a 15Bn$ Offline Opportunity, which we are addressing & we have massive plans to integrate this Industry online & our Beta Launch is the 1st step forward. We are also in talks with a large no of Offline Retailers & Merchants & are rapidly working towards offering the largest Indian Online Collection of Home Deco Products apart from the 3,500 products we already showcase for our users.

    We also see Home Ideaz as a very strong ‘engagement’ tool & platform for Interior Decorators, Architects apart from Retailers in reaching out to users pan India & engaging them.

We live in a very socially integrated world & users like to see, review, actively engage, discuss, & at times even try out products before they buy.

Its our vision & passion to bring these elements at HomeIdeaz.in in the coming days…and we are sure our users are going to love what they see and engage in as we move forward! Our Beta Launch is the 1st step forward & all I can say for now.is watch this space for more!’
