Festive Gifting Ideas – 2018

Gifting sweets and chocolates and dry fruits are now so passé. If you’re running out of inspiration and gifting ideas – we’ve got the perfect selection for you to choose from. Our ultimate gifting guide is guaranteed to make you the toast of your family and friends. So that you enjoy the festivities to the hilt!

Our selection stands out for one very important reason. Everything and we mean everything you see on www.worldartcommunity.com is hand-made. Crafted from the design sensibilities of our artistic partners and meticulously created from their efforts. And we give you many more reasons to shop
handmade this festive season !

Reason # 1

You can support local artisans and their craft, and therefore their local economy and community.  And in turn help preserve crafts that would otherwise run the risk of fading away into oblivion.

Reason # 2 

Handmade products are of high-quality and well finished and hence built to last. That’s because artisans take immense pride in their work, and would want it to last.  Materials and trims are hand-picked by the individual craftsperson which no big manufacturing company can claim to do.

Reason # 3 

Handmade gifts are mostly one of a kind. And they are the best on the block.  Cool, trendy, unique, and usually one-of- a kind, you can find some really awesome handmade stuff that’ll make everyone ask “Where can I get one just like this?”

Reason # 4

You can get customised products ! Since each and every item is made by hand, you can modify the colour or size or motif of something you are interested in, or even get a fully commissioned custom order done. The possibilities are awesome and endless. Do drop in a message to us should you like to customise or bulk buy at contact@worldartcommunity.com and we’ll be happy to help.

Reason # 5

You’re doing your bit for the environment.  Because handmade items aren’t made in a polluting, waste-producing factory and shipped halfway around the world burning up huge amounts of fuel and energy.
Buying handmade and local products greatly reduces your carbon footprint on the world.

Reason # 6

You can create a unique connection with your artisan.  You can get to know about the person who made the item with their own hands. It’s like the artist is sharing a part of himself with you – and you are privileged to know the artist as well. There’s a warm feeling that you get – knowing that you’ve made a difference to someone’s life. And that you’ve helped support someone directly.   You don’t have to pay middlemen – and other levels of
people – it’s just about you and the creator of what you are buying !

Get ready to explore our festive handmade gifting options – for a wonderful and Green Diwali this year !
