10 Unconventional Gifts for Couples

Hiy,

I have been wanting to do this post for a while but the fear of contacting the various artists and enterprises had stopped me, but as I grow more confident with the blog I will be featuring more outside businesses and new ventures. In today’s post I present 10 unconventional gifts for couples. Please note all the products and services mentioned are available in Kolkata and most of them also cater to the rest of India.

As much as we love the idea of a beautifully wrapped set of silverware, household items or personal accessories; one cannot deny the charm in a more thoughtful, personalized and experiential gift. By personalized I do not mean the usual photograph related personalized items available so commonly. These are fun gifts either created by artists or experiences that let the couple spend quality time with each other. The following gifts are apt for weddings, anniversaries or to show your appreciation to any couple.
