Say it with gifts


IT IS a gift collection with a difference. Fluorescent glass containers edged with etched silver gold leaf and spangles, exquisitely crafted silver puja items in avant garde shapes and an array of silk and brocade upholstery and cushions, zari lace and crinkled tissue table linen give a new dimension to festive gifts. The Ambience collection offers just the right mix of colours, elegant concepts and textures. All the gift items are made of organic materials.

The glass votives from `Manna' of Delhi are scene stealers. Crafted out of bright red, yellow and green glass, the tiny votives are rimmed with silver and gold leaf painting or touched with gold and silver spangles. The larger votives are coloured fluorescent silver on the inside, giving them a traditional look. The votives hold candles for lighting up and can also be used as decorative artefacts. Other options for lighting up the festive spirit are candles and wrought iron garden diggers with pretty glass globes, as well as a range of candle stands.

Ravissant's silver puja items such as bells, `thals' and candles charm with their delicacy of execution and contemporary lines.


Zari, brocade and tissue set the tone in cushions, table and bed linen. Opulent yet restrained in design and treatment, the cushions come in jewel tones while the table linen runs the gamut from zari bordered jacquard, brocade and silk table cloths and table mats to ethereal organza napkins.

Small gift packs of Good Earth's coffee and tea mugs, aroma therapy candle packs, Bath and Beauty packs from France and many other gifts form part of the Ambience Festive Gift Collection. And don't miss the chic and minimalist sandstone vases and ashtrays.

Available at Ambience, 37, Bheemanna Garden Road, Raja Annamalai Puram.
