Classy Things: Quality Gifts Symbolising Memories

Jaideep Prajapati,MDThe Indian e-commerce industry growing rapidly over the past few years, coupled with a large customer base, has made online gifting into as a lucrative segment. Afford-ability and diversity play a key role in the segment's growth. Adding to these benefits, comes personalised gifting which is in trend nowadays. With such a unique idea, comes Classy Things, a brand that provides customised gifting products and accessories for men, women and couples for various occasions.

The Mumbai based company was founded by Jaideep Prajapati. Hailing from a traditional Marwari business family, Jaideep was always inclined towards starting something on his own. Post his MBA, he launched a customised t-shirts business which was a trend at that time. However, he remained on the lookout for developing something unique and saw scope in the gifting market which showed great growth potential. With one eye on international expansion, Jaideep founded Classy Things in 2019.

can be afforded by a large demographic," says Jaideep. Classy Things also specializes in customised gifting for couples. The products are made available on most ecommerce platforms including Amazon, Flipkart and Meesho apart from other e-sellers.

The feature that differentiates our products from others in the industry is that they are made from 100 percent vegan leather which is animal cruelty-free and at the same time gives a premium look. Also, the pricing is affordable as compared to the other brands.
