Gifts with a Cherry on Top!

February 13, 2015 - by Naureen

As a child, the concept of Valentine's Day represented the innocent exchange of character-themed cards and the over- consumption of candy conversation hearts. Growing up, however, I realized that a valentine went beyond a cute bumblebee requesting the recipient to "bee mine." Valentine's Day celebrates the love between two individuals. So, don’t get me wrong, I’m not a total cynic. I too appreciate the notion of gifts in the name of romance, which is why I’m doing a review of an amazing company that facilitates gift-giving. We’re checking out CherryTin, an online service that delivers gifts all year long- (just in case you feel like showering your loved ones every single day and not just v-day.)

I received a generous package of gourmet tins from CherryTin that featured quality cashews, chamomile tea, and paan masala raisins. While this varied assortment may seem odd, the beautiful packaging really tied the gift together. And it’s important to note that as the buyer, you do get to choose your own selection of dried fruits and nuts. This customization option applies to a number of their gifts- from HappySocks and cufflinks to Ferrero Rocher- you pick what to put in your gift box.

The unique selling-point of CherryTin is evident with its name: the packaging. I’ve never received a gift put together so thoughtfully. Every detail from the hand-written letter to the beautiful cherry box was stunning. Currently, I’m using the exterior packaging as a memento box and the tins as my personal tea bag containers. You can even use the pieces as décor elements in your home, as I have shown below.

At the Big Fat Indian Wedding, we would like to especially focus on the wide variety of wedding gifts you can order from CherryTin. Bride-To-Be's in search of the perfect wedding day memento for grooms, look no further! They have sterling silver cufflinks that can be paired beautifully with some quirky Happy Socks. I know my former groom would love that! Brides and grooms can also find a number of unique knick-knacks for wedding favors for their guests. For those attending a wedding, they also have a number of traditional gifts like silver kottans. The woven pattern on these pieces is so intricate and beautiful- they make stunning servingware for special occasions.
