6 Curated Boxes For Those Who Like Unpredictable Gifts

Text by Sadaf Shaikh

From jams to stationery, founders tell you exactly what goes into the making of the perfect present

THE LUXE BOX

The inception: For founder Hina Oomer-Ahmed, a Mumbai-based personal stylist with a diploma in image consulting  from New York, curating gift hampers was a natural extension of her inherent aesthetic. While she was cognisant of the market for subscription boxes, she was perceptive enough to find her niche in the luxury gifting space. She played to her strengths and combined different items which had their own utility, but when presented together, provided a spectacular experience to the recipient.

Why you should choose them: Luxe Box is an amalgam of products that Hina has personally tried and tested. This is why she can confidently vouch for the quality of each item – right from the cosmetics to the oils and granola. No item is taken at face value alone.

Quirkiest creations: “For a gentleman’s 40th birthday, which had a classic black and white theme, I put together a combination of bespoke products that included a sleek black tie, an aftershave balm and a vintage silver-embossed black diary. Since the man considered himself a fitness fiend, the hamper was topped off with chocolate chip granola, almond butter and body massage oil.
The floral boxes are my personal favourites wherein I incorporate products associated with a recipient’s favourite flower. In it, I include fragrant floral combinations which usually go with a corresponding perfume so that the person has a beautiful box of their favourite scent at hand.”
