Choosing a nice gift for a friend can be quite difficult than it seems. More often than not, you’ll be wondering what to get him/her and running out of ideas pretty soon. You realize that, they already have most of the things and you are left with very little choices. If you’d ask me, a very ideal gift would be something personalized. Even if it’s a small keychain or pen, when you customize it with their pic or name, it automatically becomes very special and holds immense value to it. This has always been my go-to strategy and never seemed to fail to impress the other person. Fortunately, I was introduced to one such personalized gifts website called IGP.com and invited to review the same.
IGP stands for Indian gifts portal and one of the biggest multi category online gifts website. In most cases you either finding sites delivering only flowers or cakes or maybe the occasional Teddy Bear. IGP.com thankfully has a lot more variety than the traditional gifting options, giving us the much needed interesting choices we need.
The Personalized Gift Collection
Customization is usually the key in gifting and making the occasion memorable. A gift with a photo of your friend and their name engraved can be a delightful, well thought out gift. You can be sure, that it’s going to a prized possession forever. This could include a mug / tshirt / pen drive/ photo frame/ desk clock or even a perfume bottle with his name engraved. Now who would have thought of that?
Creative Gifting Categories
As the name goes, you may be able to find gifts in several categories. They even made it easy by sorting it out against festival days, occasions and the type of recipients. These include
- Home & Living: This includes everything you might need for home (clocks/wall decors/Showpieces/mugs/office stationaries/ room decorators and furnishings.

- Toys & Games: This section includes all types of indoor & outdoor games for kids, board games, soft toys etc.
- Gourmets: Probably my most favourite section in the site. They have a good variety of imported and Indian chocolates, sweets, dry fruits etc.
- Cakes, Flowers and Teddies: As expected from a gifting site, you get a fair share of delicious cakes and flowers to deliver to anyone you’d want.
Apart from Product level categories, they have also sorted the gifts based on the occasion . This includes Birthdays, Father’s Day, Mother’s Days, Diwali, Friendship Day etc..
My Picks from IGP.com
After sifting through the entire collection for almost a day, I narrowed it down to a Park Avenue Gym Fitness Kit, a set of Superman action figures, a Vintage Aeroplane collectible and a Lomani brand of EDT kit.
After much deliberation I ended up buying the Lomani Deo-EDT combo kit for men at a price of 950 or so. This seemed to be an excellent deal and being a perfume lover myself, I couldn’t wait to try this out. The buying process worked smoothly, checked out and got the payment done in a minute or so and I received the mail almost instantly.
The estimated time was roughly 3-4 days, but I had the product delivered, in 48 hours flat. The products came in a nice big carton neatly sealed. More importantly the perfume kit was wrapped with a ribbon and came with a small wooden tray as well. This seemed to be a perfect gift, you could give to anyone.
