RedPolka.com's window to share notes on fashion, Lifestyle, Designs and also Shopper Marketing


The season of gifting has arrived! The truth lies behind the fact that everybody loves receiving gifts, but when it comes to giving gifts, there is always confusion on what to gift, and where to find it. Gifting is one of the very important nuances of social interactions, more for the giver than the recipient. Some might think that the holiday season, festivals, and celebrations have become materialistic, heavily! But, we think gifting is the best time to exchange love and cheer. We at Red Polka curate beautiful things from fashion and lifestyle, just for you. And, now as we list down a few gifting options for you, we thought we might as well share some of our thoughts and bundle up this season’s gifting essentials!  

  • Think about the person you are buying for: Consider their interests, personality, hobbies etc. Think about what they would appreciate most. Don’t just buy something that you think will be convenient; really spend some time thinking about their ideal gift.
  • Tip- Ask their family and friends if they have mentioned anything that they would really like.
  • Create a budget:Is it Season gifting is all about spreading the cheer, right? Budget your gift shopping, and make the most of it.  You can also just plan to spend the same amount of money on this person as they’ve spent on you in the past.
  • Still clueless? It’s time to trawl the shops: The market is your playground! All the shops all around the world are selling the best this season. Go into quality shops, look around and look closely at everything that catches your eye or resembles that person’s personality. Imagine you are the person you are buying for. Imagine how much you would use this thing; what you would use it for, how good it would be to them. If it seems like an ideal present, consider it.


  • Not every one of you wants to buy a gift in first go, so-

The best thing to do is remember where you see certain things and go and check out some of the other shops! You could find something a lot better, and then you would regret buying the first thing you saw! After you have checked what’s on offer, decide which item your friend would most like. Check the price; check that it is not too ridiculous! Then finally buy it! Wrap it up! Gifting is all wrapped up in presentation. It’s usually the thought that counts when it comes to gift giving, but research indicates that the wrapping is just as important. Either go to a department store with a gift wrap service or carefully wrap it yourself to get the best results! More and more gift wrapping services are cropping up, with some wonderful ideas.  Check out what how we at Red Polka get gift wrapping –

  Unsaid rules about gifting  

  • Get a gift, give a gift: gift exchanges must be reciprocal.
  • Even-Steven: gift exchanges must be of equal value.
  • Come one, come all: gift exchanges must extend to every member of a relationship category.
  • Gift personality: Choose something that reflects the person interests or personality.
  • Money is not a gift: The idea that “you can never go wrong with money” is not necessarily true. Carefully consider your relationship with the person and the reason you’re getting the gift.
  • Cheap is really cheap: Don’t just choose something because it is cheap.
  • Keep the receiver in mind: Make sure you’re thinking of them when you are looking for presents, don’t assume they’ll like what you like. Equally if you live with the person or such like, don’t buy something for yourself and say it is for them.
