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 inception: The Style Salad was co-founded by Shweta Raman and Saloni Shah, who have a background in fashion and have a keen eye for putting things together. They firmly believe that style is not just limited to fashion, but extends to lifestyle and presentation as well which is why they named their venture The Style Salad. ‘Style’ alludes to presentation and ‘salad’ is a mix of organic cosmetics, gourmet food, decor, stationery and lifestyle products.

Why you should choose them: Besides offering complete customisation and personalisation services, they also offer thematic pre-packed boxes to make gifting much simpler. For example, there is the ‘first coffee box’ for the coffee lover, the ‘escape box’ to pamper a loved one and the ‘home box’ for housewarming parties. Creative souls can build their own boxes by opting for the ‘toss up your own’ service on the website. For those who have a fixed budget or are pressed for time, they also offer the option of personal shopping where they specially source a certain item that’s not available on the website.

Quirkiest creations: “We were quite pleased with the box we created for a gentleman’s 60th birthday who loves to travel and appreciates good wine and food. The hamper included a wine-shaped cheese board, a passport sleeve, a universal travel adapter, contemporary mugs for sangrias and coffee and gourmet treats like banana bread and coffee-infused stroopwafels.
Another one we are really proud of is the box we put together for a client’s fiancé who is a whisky connoisseur and a golf enthusiast. It included an executive golf kit, a leather hip flask and a designer bow tie.
For yet another hamper, we sourced a Swarovski pen-cum- USB and loaded a curated playlist of 70s music into it, and included a designer scarf and a wine bottle with a custom label. The recipient absolutely loved it!”
