    Hi pal


    Also for babies within 1 year you can buy "one ease" (spelling may be wrong) the dress from head to toe as it is not available out here..

    We get onesies in India too. However I dint find much use of them when I was in India as we dont put diapers. So get one or two pieces of them as they are less expensive.

    I wanted to share my knowledge related to desi online e-commerce shopping portals. While I was thinking of sending a gift to India, I came to know about Kharidari through my sister, a good place to shop if you want to send gifts to India for your beloved one's back home.Especially there is a good collection of Rakhis.I just sent a colourful Rakhi.

    I went to the site which had a pretty user friendly UI compared to others in the same space. Product selection was pretty good as well and having placed the order the post sale support was real good as those guys would get back to me within 24 hrs if I had any questions related to the order.

    Since then I've placed few more orders at Kharidari and their consistency in order execution is unparallel. I wanted him to give some surprising gift and hope I gave it ..



    Best Regards,
    Idithri

    hi padma,

    the puzzles r really good. i cariied a game set which will have chess, ahinese checkers and another one in one single box.

    i got some jump drives for my cousins, and perfumes. i took winter t- shirts for my perippa and elders.

    i got the big coral which they put in the thaali( mangal sutra) for all the ladies in the fmaily. i took small glass beads strand for all the girl kids.
    also watches r good options. u can give digital camers to your father. it is also there for less price check it.

    some microwavable bowls like faberware. knifes, peelers,garlic crusher, equal for the sugar patients......use and throw razors. use and throw pens. and soo on.

    now it is school openeing time get all the cheaper stuffs like 1 cent and other u can gift them for your servants kids and other poor kids... i normally get it and stock it.
