Best Contemporary Gifting Ideas in any Occasion

Author: Dev BT


When it comes to Gifting in any occasion, sometime it is very difficult to decide what to gift what not to; and one of the key deciding FACTOR in most cases depends on COST factor.

However, most people’s gift buying decision depends mostly on OCCASION, there are some Contemporary Products Ideas which can be gifted at any occasion and the receiver will appreciate and remember you for long time till that product is part of their life.

Our Suggestion is…If you are planning to Gift something, think Carefully and Gift something which leaves a long lasting impression IN THE MIND OF RECEIVER!!!

In Indian culture offering Sweets, Dry fruits, Namkeen are very common, if you want the person to remember you for long long time, present those Gifts which they remember you whenever they come across that Gifts and the Gift should be liked by not just by one Individual but by other family members and home visitors, everyone should be Impressed by looking @IT. Is it Possible? YES, it is!! The Best Gift to present is TANGIBLE Gifts which can sustain for long time, visible to every home visitor or visible to his friend or business circle also. Sweets, Dry fruits, Chocolates can finish in a week or month and than all is forgotten, but TANGIBLE gifts remain in their mind for long time and in some cases if is remembered by their family and friends as well.

Just sharing this little personal experience, in 2015, I got a call from an Old client, and he mentioned that, he recalled my name by chance looking at the wall Painting which I had gifted him during Diwali 2008, he wanted some Retail Consultancy advice for a new venture and to my surprise I was really pleased that an old client is still calling me after 7 odd years, due to what I had Gifted him!! And Guess how much that Painting was worth? Just Rs.2250 only and it was a Beautiful looking Running Horse painting in Golden color, which he had fixed on his drawing room wall, and still adorn that wall (as I had visited his home in 2016 end).

Few of the best GIFTING ideas I would like to share with my readers, which I  had personally applied in my Personal and Professional life to create long lasting impression & build relationship, and people still remember me after many years for what I had gifted them in few cases.

My Philosophy is very simple, I am allergic to Fat food, Sweets and those products which gets ROTTEN in few days, rather fond of those Gifts which can last atleast couple of years!! It won’t cost BIG, in most cases, even less than a Well known Branded Dry Fruit box, what you need is just a little bit of Creativity, little bit of Research and little bit of Common Sense.

Normally what happens in every household, what you Gifted, ends-up passing-on to another one coz it was not so IMPRESSIVE OR ATTRACTIVE, however, the cost was almost the same. So always Gift something the Receiver find it hard to PASS-ON TO ANOTHER PERSON.


In Another Example, if you want to be Remembered by someone every Morning, Try this Gifting Ideas 15 BEST RAINFALL SHOWERHEAD & HOW TO CHOOSE THEM!!

Editor's Favorite Gifting Idea

Swarovski Crystalline Stardust Pen, Set of 3 - MRP Rs.12,386 @Time of Publishing.


Branded Pens as a Gift is mostly used in Professional and Corporate Circle. It is one of the most Effective and Traditional gifting ideas practiced by Professionals worldwide. 

Mont blanc – There’s no doubt, it is everyone’s favorite and everyone Dream of owning a piece of Mont Blanc (most people with brand consciousness), a globally renowned name, falls under Luxury/Premium category, owning Mont Blanc is a sign of Status Symbol. However, the key-deterrent is Price and it’s maintenance cost.

SWAROVSKI – A well known and highly popular brand known for it’s Beautiful, Glittering & Shining Look & Attractive Designs, everyone love to own a piece of Swarovski and very popular and well known BRAND  worldwide. The pen category starts from Rs.1950 (or less in some cases during seasons sale period) and it is one Gifting Product which suites in any occasion. It’s been my Favorite since I bought 1st Swarovski product in 2002.

There are many Brands from Lower to Premium Category, the Gifted category mostly depends on the Stature or Position of the Receiver, Higher the  position Premium the category. However, it doesn’t need to be Premium every time, there are very good branded pens which creates very good impression with impeccable quality and last for many years, few of them are like CROSS and SHEAFFER

Few of the Top Well know Brands are;

  • Mont Blanc
  • Sheaffer
  • A.T.Cross

  • Faber – Castell
  • etc.

Among all these, MONT BLANC is the most Premium and most Desired Pen brand by Corporate Professionals, if you can afford it, buy & offer as a gift, it will do wonder for your business relationship in the long run!!

This is one of the MOST EFFECTIVE GIFTING IDEA, since everyone carry a Pen, especially working Professionals regardless of Gender. The best thing is … EVERYTIME HE/SHE START-WRITING, THE PERSON CANNOT IGNORE THE GIFTER!!! THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE GIFTING IDEA AND I STILL PRACTICE IT in most Occasion. 

Assorted Chocolates Gift Pack

CHOCOLATE – A mouth watering combination of your favorite chocolates and tea light that will bring happiness and light up your home. This is one of the most Common Diwali gifting idea, however, I don’t practice it at all due to Health & Hygienic Reason. Every product which contains milk has got limited shelf-life and most retailers carry-on selling these products with new expired-tag, YES…you heard it right!! Once the expiry period is over, they will fix-new expiry TAG. Do they bother about the Consumer’s health? Forget about it, most retailers are not bothered about it. And in many instances finding FUNGUS or DEAD FLY OR COCKROACH is a very common incident. 

And Remember, it’s not good for Children’s Teeth, it’s the biggest Culprit if consumed regularly since it contains CAFFEINE. 

But still it is one of the Most Common & Popular Gifting ideas.

Zippo Gold Dust Lighter

Don’t take me wrong, I am not promoting Smoking. Zippo is a Sign of Prestige & Status, a person who carries Zippo in his pocket feels special and it’s a Prestige Symbol for most of it’s Owner. 

And to remind you, Zippo is not meant only for Lighting a Cigarette!! It can be used at home for any purpose when ever there’s a need for Lighting something, for example sometime your Gas lighter doesn’t work and there’s no Match box as well, but you have Zippo in the drawer, and at this time you can use Zippo too. 

Gifting Zippo someone means creating a positive impression and keeping yourself in the Memory of that person for many years to come.
