Best Online Stores for shopping Quirky Stuff & Gifts in India 2022

Many people are attached to brands & so they only prefer buying labeled clothing. But there are a few of us who like to explore more niche local products that are offbeat in style.

We see our fashion choices as an extension of our unique personalities, so it’s no surprise that our tastes are what the crowd would call “funky” as well.

As a proud rebel (especially when it comes to shopping), I’ve curated this list of some amazing online stores where you can buy “hip & urban” stuff like funny t-shirts, wellness products, utility items, and all other kinds of exclusive merchandise.

There are a couple of advantages to choosing these stores.

  • Firstly, you’ll find hand-picked quality products & reliable customer support as the startups depend on their growing customer base to survive.
  • Secondly, you’ll enjoy rewards & discounts if you shop on their websites directly because it saves the businesses money that they would otherwise have to pay as commission to Amazon.

Explore my list, and go buy something as a treat for yourself on payday. Even better, gift it to someone you care about at work, college, or home.

Let’s go Shopping, babe!
