Perennial Gift Boutique will be a place providing gifting solutions to the people. Social expression industry in India has never been given due importance mainly due to two reasons: a) dominance of few market players and b) under estimation of the market. Sensing the huge potential of the market, this business plan aims at helping the individuals in various gifting stages i.e. from deciding what to gift till the gift is actually delivered to the individual.

Business Idea
Perennial Gift Boutique will be a catalogue cum display store that will have various gifting options at disposal ranging from cards to souvenir. The USP of the boutique will be that it will provide customary solution to each individual just like a consultancy. Each customer will be treated separately and gifting options would be given as per their need and budget. We would not give direct competition to the big players like Archies, Hallmark and Expression instead we will tie up with them and create an image of gifting solution destination.

Idea Generation
The idea of a gift boutique is not generated but was with me from past few years. I have seen my friends, relatives and family members asking me that what they should gift to some or either person. One peculiar thing was no matter how close the person was to whom they wanted to gift but they all had a budget in mind and wanted to get the best gift within that budget. This gave me an idea that there can be a store which can help people having same issues. And the result is Perennial Gift Boutique.

Bad Idea to Good Idea

Earlier the idea was that I will open an online facility of providing service and it will not have any physical place. But this idea had certain lacunae. It was killing the aspect of personal touch the very basic ingredient of gifting feeling. There was also the problem of inventory management, delivery issues and maintenance of E- system. Then this idea was molded and given the present state where we will not be operating online instead a store would be there and we would be collaborating with players like Archies.

Of this, the organized sector accounts for approximately Rs. 150 crore (US$ 33.3 million). The greeting card market is estimated at Rs. 250 crores in terms of consumer spend.
