Staying Connected with Grandparents

What do you remember about your childhood?
Playing around with your friends, your school, school friends, summer / winter vacations, meeting your cousins and last but definitely not the least your time spent with your Grandparents.
We used to live in a Nuclear Family and my Dadu and Dadi lived in a different city but I remember my mom and dad making a point going to meet them and talk to them whenever they can. My Nanaji and Nani stayed in the same city and either we or they came to visit every week.
The times may have changed but the love that grandparents share for their grandchild is and always will remain the same.
Even today when I close my eyes and remember the good times spent with them I remember stealing toffees that were kept under Dadu’s pillow, My Dadi teaching me acu-pressure benefits of folding hands and doing Namaste, I was so mesmerized by the speed by which my nani could knit even while she was talking to us or with her eyes closed and ofcourse my headstrong Nanaji who al…

Online Gifting has a New Name, IGP: Indian Gifts Portal

Hey All,

This was a long pending review. Recently on a recommendation of a fellow mom blogger I came to know about this wonderful gifting portal www.igp.com and being a blogger as well as a gifting fanatic I ordered a gift for my son.



Online Gift Shop for every Occasion

We have occasions all the time be it a birthday in a family, an Anniversary , or a festival IGP let’s you choose from wide variety of gifting options and send them directly to the footsteps of your loved ones.

IGP has somehow simplified the whole gifting process. They have already categorized your gifting needs based on occasions, relationships, city, country , personalised and you can even find same day delivery options for perishablegoods like Cake, Flowers, Chocolates etc. 

Online Indian Gift Portal
IGP: an Indian GIfts Portal

I am just not an outdoorsy person and going to the market in this scorching heat is just not for me. Thank You IGP! For taking care of my gifting needs, I could search a gift online through the Mobile Website, paid it online for it, entered the address where I wanted the gift to be delivered and voila! It was packed, sealed and delivered, with a gift card inside letting the receiver know who has sent the surprise along with the discount code which he/she ca use in their next purchase.


categories based on occasion, relations etc.
Upcoming events and gift categories at IGP

Since summer holidays are going on, I was searching for Memory Game from Fuskool for my son, which is my all time favorite from my childhood. Thought it will help Kabbir boost his concentration and for once he will have a game which he could play just by sitting at one place even if it could engage him for 10 min’s, which is quite rare with him. I would have been happy. But I just couldn’t find that game anywhere. Here, igp came to my rescue I immediately ordered the game and it arrived in 2 days!


Picture Courtsey: That Imperfect Mom

The bell rang early in the morning and like any other doorbell Kabbir is usually the first to respond and he went running for the door, though he didn’t open the door but in a way he was there to receive his gift and his excitement went just way up the roof as I handed him his gift!!!

We opened the gift immediately and found our memory game. We just couldn’t wait to play with it we also found a gift card inside. It’s been already a week and Kabbir is still enjoying his game sessions with dad and me. Well we have realized he has a very sharp memory and is so confident playing it,matching the cards one after the another. He is already winning from us in every game. Yey!

Now, back to IGP
If you go through their website you will see that they have made it quite easy for their customers. Along with the various categories they have already charted out all the Upcoming Festivals, basically helping people like me who have no clue about the next event until the festival is just round the corner and then I go running aroung looking for gifts for family and friends.

Like, just yesterday as I was going through www.igp.com I realized Father’s Day and Rakhi are coming. Thank God! I was notified early and this time I am quite sure my Brother will receive his Rakhi before hand. Yey! To that…my mom will be so proud. And our Daddy will receive his gift for the first time in last 4 years.

Suggestion:
If I can give a suggestion to IGP it will be` if they can please sync my entire Facebook friendlist & their Birthdays I will be one happy mom. For once in my life I will be on time to wish or send gifts to my friends who have even stopped complaining that I don’t remember their birthday!

Mommy Verdict:

I give IGP a big thumbs-up for the variety and the categories they have on their website, it is just so good.

Existing gifting combinations or if I can say combo’s are well though-out. Helping ever busy moms, forgetful husbands, men with no clue, brothers living in other cities or fast paced kids of today save time and the effort to find the perfect gift for their loved ones.
IGP is all you need one stop gifting shop.

You can follow IGP on Instagram and Facebook to get more updates and discounts:

How Motherhood Changed Me

Don’t we all wish motherhood would come with a Little Black Book which could help us cheat whenever Life gets tough. Even after 4 years of being a mom, there are time where i still feel like a new mom all anxious and confused, who could not sleep for 7 days straight when she first held her son, Kabbir. But isn’t it ironic that those Groundhog Day’s in a mom’s life are the ones that taught me the most and helped me grow.
Motherhood has changed my life in profound ways…
So here are my top 10 ways Motherhood has changed my life.10. Rome wasn’t built in a day: Motherhood has definitely helped me understand the Phrase “Rome wasn’t built in a day”. We may have N number of things to do at one time, you may have a house to clean, a toy rampage to organize or a clingy toddler who would not just settle, a sink full of dishes and millions of house chores to finish but I have understood motherhood is EXHAUSTING.It takes time but I have learnt to relax and say it is OKAY!  Yes, it is okay to let go of…

Insecurities of a Working Mother

This article was way to important for me, had been waiting to write it down way before I even started thinking about blogging, yet this one took me the longest time maybe I am way too close to this topic and was continuously in search of the right tone to write about it. I wanted to be so perfect that somehow I was loosing my inner voice and true emotions. So today, I decided to let go of all apprehensions and write my heart out… So this article may offend a few people, or may have grammatical errors, syntax can be wrong but I am sure you will get the semantics.

I had emotionally rough pregnancy definitely not the cinematic version that I had imagined since my child hood it was way worse…somehow it passed and as Kabbir was born my worst nightmare began (which I can tell you all maybe in my next blog post). The Japa, the breastfeeding, the inconsolable new born crying his lungs out along with continuous pressure from the in laws to breastfeed the new born even when I was unable to feed d…
