Gift uniquely & gift well

May 1, 2017 | Inspire

The year is hotting up and as we welcome in the Gulf’s sunny May days, we’re hitting up the marketplace for some pre-Summer shopping action.

Gift and give back, support local brand Qissa’s Bliss Bag Project for child refugees, discover original souvenirs to take back home over the Summer Holidays, farewell dear friends moving abroad or find thoughtful gifts of thanks for your children’s teachers.

Whatever the occasion, make an inspired choice and let your small local brands help you get your gifting needs sorted. Gift uniquely and gift well.
