Gifting ideas

From traditional `urlis,' `diyas' and treasure boxes to options in porcelain and ornamental jewellery, Aishwarya is a new store for gifting ideas and stuff for home.



FLOATING FLOWERS: An interesting arrangement with an `urli.'

FOR ANTIQUE urlis in brass, diyas, bells, bright ginger treasure boxes in wood and brass from Kerala, and other traditional gift ideas, Aishwarya is a new artefacts and gift shoppe in town. "Urlis filled with water topped with fresh flowers and a diya afloat and kept in the northeast direction are said to bring in good luck," says G. Padma Reddy, owner Aishwarya (translated prosperity and happiness). The laughing Buddha in onyx in different sizes is yet another good luck charm from the Orient for gifting.

For divinity, check out the frames that hold deities adorned with semi-precious stones. These frames with pre-recorded chants are priced between Rs. 4,000 to Rs. 40,000. One can sure choose quite a few things here for the prayer room at home.



BOLD AS BRASS: Choose from bells, boxes, pictures and lamps.

Also on offer are the colourful silk braids adorned with dry flowers ideal as wall hangings. Porcelain vases, cheerful coffee sets (Rs.400 to Rs.1,600) and a wide range of decorative polymer figurines for the shelves and refrigerator magnets. For ornaments, check out the one gram gold ornamental jewellery sets in ethnic designs comprising necklaces, bangles and earrings (Rs.900-Rs. 3,000). For the walls, three-dimensional painting depicting English taverns and hunting scenes made with marble powder are attention grabbing. Twigs of artificial flowers, glass flowers and fruits are other knick-knacks to check out apart from the dolphins and colourful fishes in the popular Morano glass.



TREASURE CHEST: A perfect gift.

Aishwarya is located on 1st Floor, Sita Towers (Opp. Pantaloons) Begumpet and can be reached on 7765542, 6270775.
