If you blindly love stationery, place an order for Origin One’s surprise box of goodies that’s hand picked from their own collection of design-drooled ware.
Apart from the packaging that comes tied in shoe-lace inspired string and a box that’s covered with enough to keep you from opening it, what I like is the thought. A surprise box you pay for. Fair. Fun.
Order yours here.

‘97% India’ is the tagline. The rest of the 3% is open to the world and its influences.
With its Nandi tones and crimson shades, No-Mad crafts products straight from the heart. Distinct and very wantable.
When K first pointed me to their post, the first thing I noticed was the effort that went into each carton. The sides were hand sewn and the whole package was well thought through. Careful placement of the label that was so central and so easy to have been done in a slap-on-postage stamp kind of way. But not.
The cloth bags carry on it the very Indian buta print. A bold red and 100% cotton make these pouches very reusable. The canvas labels on it are inspired by desi laundry tags – perfect in its finish and charming in its source of inspiration.

Grey Garden has launched their Bento meals. Bento, traditionally a Japanese convenience meal, is meticulously packed with love (and a lot of times, with elaborate decorations on the food). The food is packed into either a disposable box using eco-friendly materials (like the one featured here) or there are the more expensive ones made of lacquerware. In India, we call it tiffin box. But sushi in a tiffin box would so not be right, no?

Truly unique packaging. Everytime I see the pack or even their logo, I drool.
Two lessons: 1. Don’t keep changing the pack design. 2. What the pack contains is very important.

When what you pack inside is colour-blocked Channapatna toys, then what you pack it with should look just as traditional, contemporary and young as what’s within. N’est pas?
Order one here to receive this lovely box with lovelier things inside.

This box, recently in the Pii family and handed down from the last generation, is delicate, tiny and filled with fine filigree work. From research it looks like the origins are Cuttack. More precious to us for it’s emotional value. Do you have a memory pack too?
Quillkaari make these lovely delicate, handcrafted paper accessories, and they send these across to their customers in the most endearing way. The way happy people decorate gift boxes – simple brown boxes, playful scribbles, cute messages and intricate Quillkaari decorations.

The ‘ish watch’ pays tribute to IST (Indian Stretchable Time) and every one of us Indians. What Pii really liked about this piece is that the designers have spent just as much love on designing the box as they did on the watch. Created by Hyphen for Filter.
The Memory Box for children. Handmade and personalised to hold little objects that are close to your heart, or your kids’. Lovely thought from the lovely folk at Elephants Remember.
The Jeff Koon-inspired poop bag box. 3 different sized boxes :) with an easy pull-out slit on the side. Hmm…Makes that chore fun. Designed by Janavi Kothari, http://janavikotharidesign.blogspot.com/
