So we decided to explore different websites for online gifting and zeroed in on Indian Gifts Portal because this one is proactive.If you are at a loss about about what to gift,they have a wide range of suggestions and filters according to profession,personal taste,age and sex of the person whom you want to gift.So for an elderly father, you could select from sugar free goodies,a carved walking stick or even a pocket watch ! … And there are many more to choose from .
After going through the exhaustive gifts menu the kids asked me to order a Park Avenue Essentials Grooming Kit for men .

CONS of IGP.com
1. I found that there was no detailed description of gifts, like for instance for a shirt, it was not mentioned if it was slim fit or a regular fit neither a size chart was included.For jewellery,the description does not include the length or width of the article.Though they do have a provision wherein if you are interested in an item and want to know details of the item selected,then you can just fill a form through their website and they will call you back or send the details .I did not try this feature though .
FINAL VERDICT – I rate it a 4.5/5. This one makes gifting a pleasure to both the giver and the receiver .
