Luxebox, a gifting consultancy, by Hina Oomer Ahmed guides people in the art of gifting, with equal importance placed on gorgeously packaged and styled gifts. On the website, she states, “Beauty is in the small things, in how the flower is placed, the right shade of the ribbon, the subtle fragrance of the candle. Which is why we believe in experiential and thoughtful gifting.” Create wonderful memories with their custom designs or ready-to-ship options that include everything from Champagne and luxury chocolates to gourmet treats and artisanal teas to organic beauty products and home fragrances.
