Your guide to gifting

By Drishti Kapadia  October 14th, 2019

The season of soirées and weddings is almost here, and so is the pressure of coming up with unique presents. In Ancient India, people gifted each other cattle and grains to show their love and affection and, though that may not be a very relevant option today, here’s a chance to give your near and dear ones something meaningful. Forest Essentials, the luxury, Ayurveda brand has launched its latest gifting collection and it’s all inspired by cosmic symbols and Indian mythology. Go through our gifting guide to get your hands on some unexpectedly impressive goodies that show you really care. These are available in Forest Essentials’ stores across India as well as online.
