This Raksha Bandhan pamper your sister with a relaxing spa or a gourmet dining experience in a stretch limousine and show you care. Flatter your wife with a supermodel makeover experience or your husband with a funky tattoo at a stylish studio. Immortalize a baby’s handprints in clay or get a family portrait done in charcoal. Give a romantic getaway in a hot air balloon as an anniversary gift to a best friend, jump off a plane with colleagues for a skydive adventure or drive a Formula 1 car on a race track on your birthday. Surprise your mother with the relaxing wonders of Javanese and Balinese rituals or your dad with a surreal wine trail experience. Whether you are a resident Indian or NRI shopping to send gifts to India was never this stimulating. You can now gift emotions and everlasting memories as unique gifts to India with the launch of ExcitingLives.com.
ExcitingLives.com, the experiential gifting company is changing the way people gift their loved ones, business associates or employees. It offers a refreshing range of gifts India has not seen, and a far cry from gifting items of jewellery, electronics, clothing, or sweets and chocolates.
“Many people are rejecting mundane gifting ‘chores’ and starting to look for more creative forms of giving that make a lasting impression and are truly cherished,” says ExcitingLives.com Founder and CEO Rohit Saxena. “Books, DVDs, shirts were good as gifts over the last decade but not quite anymore. The emotion that resonates when you gift a professionally done family portrait to your parents is much more valuable than when you gift yet another gold pendant or a sari or a new mobile phone any day,” adds Saxena. Add to that a user-friendly website, a lively interface and great service and you have an unbeatable shopping experience.
“ExcitingLives.com combines the convenience of online shopping with a soulful gifting experience,” says Vandana Srivastava, co-founder and Creative Director, ExcitingLives.com, based in the UK. “We aim to combine our rich cultural legacy with new age appeal while retaining character, and the response has been fantastic,” beams Srivastava. She should be pleased, now busy crafting innovative experiences in the UK and US to be launched shortly for high-fliers jet-setting every now and then, and for their friends and family based there.
ExcitingLives.com offers a variety of experiences under categories like Body & Soul, Culture, Outdoors, Cars and Planes, Kids, etc. They cover a wide range of prices and something can be found to compliment any individual, couple or group, and appeal to a wide range of emotions — from adrenaline to thrills and spills to serene to cultural to just plain impulsive.
