Totally complementing our edition ‘50 First Dates- prep up to have fun’, today we tell you the story of Mr. Chetan Murthy of Gifts of Love for our #TuesdayTale. This gift store is a vibrant mix of fun and quirky range of lifestyle accessories, stationery and gifts.
Chetan and his family had been in the business of designing and printing for many years and thought of introducing some awesome stationery to the markets of Delhi. They were one of the select few stores offering some coolest stationery in Delhi. So, they set up Gifts of Love in 2001, with 5 products to sell initially, at the Blind School Diwali Mela in New Delhi, and moved on to their first retail store some years later. Chetan reminisces “We have grown a lot in terms of product category; however we still absolutely love the sweet smell of fresh new stationery. We love colour, we are inspired by creativity and have a keen eye for good design. At ‘Gifts of Love’, we celebrate the joy of gifting every day!”

Our customers love the burst of colour, and the great mix of accessories and gifts available at the store. From elegant money envelopes, to storage solutions, and the super handy magnetic collection, they love it all. And every time they come back they are happy to find new stuff.
2) What are the things one should keep in mind while buying a gift?
Let your gift be basic and simple, but surely significant. At the same time make sure that the person receiving it can relate to it. Knowing you made that little extra effort to get him/her something will be really appreciated.
3) Can you give some gift suggestions from gifts of Love?
