Gift curator DhoomBox heralding a new gifting concept in India, has announced the availability of “Dhoombox” at “The Box” in The Park Hotel in the heart of the city, in Connaught Place Delhi. “The Box” houses a wide array of handpicked cosmetic products, office accessories and designer labels.
With the addition of the new outlet, Dhoombox is now available at Nine (9) locations in Delhi & NCR.
“The Dhoombox idea is not only to gift experiences and services BUT to gift the CHOICE” said Jeremy Grasset, co-founder of Dhoombox.
The Rs 500 – Rs 3000 Adventure, Kids, Wellness, Gastronomy, & Getaway DhoomBox package boxes are well thought of choices keeping the entire family in focus. Dhoomboxes are already available at KAC
at Meharchand Market, GIFT OF LOVE at Select Citiwalk Mall in Saket, SHIVALIK GIFT PALACE in Malviya Nagar, KIDS PORT in DT City Centre Mall in Gurgaon, PURPLE JUNGLE in Hauz Khas Village, LOLA'S WORLD in Hauz Khas Village, and IN & OUT CONVIENCE STORES in Sector 44 & 49 in Gurgaon.
A Dhoombox contains: One catalogue including up to 30 packages to choose from, and ONE prepaid voucher to redeem the selected activity. The receiver can browse through the well-explained catalogue, choose any of the services on offer and access the same, assisted by a dedicated Customer Care Executive.
Every Service Provider is contractually committed to accept the Dhoombox voucher as payment for their activities. Dhoombox is therefore in a position to guarantee that a valid voucher will always be accepted by every Service Provider referenced in the box.
Each Gift Box has been curated with a rich collection of high quality services from well-known providers. These include paragliding in the hills of Himachal Pradesh, or even a Yak Safari in Leh. In the 'Wellness Dhoombox', for example, there are more than 30 options to choose from - such as spa treatments, swimming lessons, chanting classes, yoga sessions, martial arts training and art and craft workshops.
This unique and novel gifting concept is the first-of-its-kind in India. According to the ‘Dhoombox’ team, the notion of 'Gifting in a Box' that kicked off in the 1980’s in Belgium has found huge success in Europe and the USA. Today, the Experience Gift Box Market is a major segment in the worldwide gifting market. More than 8 million Experience Gift Boxes were sold worldwide in 2011, generating more than $3.5 billion in sales revenue. French company SmartBox, the pioneer of the industry, operates in 21 countries, has a repertory of 450 products and is present in 6,000 retail sales points.
The Indian Gift Market is worth $30 billion annually, where prepaid gift cards alone accounted for $403.8 million in 2011 and is growing at a rate of 30% per annum. Dhoombox operates in 45 cities across India now and is aggressively expanding further. “We aim at becoming the market leaders” says Dhoombox founder.
Co founded by Frenchmen Mathieu Jouve-Villard & Jeremy Grasset, Dhoombox was launched in October 2011 by an Indo-French team. These original “gift boxes” allow the receivers to choose an experience of their fancy out of a thrilling selection of up to 30 exclusive activities that have been carefully crafted. So not only do they get to indulge in an entire experience, they get the gift of CHOICE. These boxes are available in nine retail outlets in the NCR. A Dhoombox Gift Box can also be bought over the Internet (www.dhoombox.com) and other gifting websites (www.giveter.com and www.tajonline.com). For further details please visit www.dhoombox.com
