Startup of the year, GiftsOnAir, is all set to bring in some celebrations and festive cheer for the offline retailers. Festival season is one time of the year when everyone wants to go on a shopping spree. Most Indians believe that this time is auspicious to buy new things. Apart from this, there is one more reason to indulge – the discounts that are being offered!

In the past few years, the online marketers seem to be making the most of this time by offering great exclusive offers, cash backs etc. The likes of Amazon and Flipkart are leaving no stone unturned to woo customers to shop on their platforms. As a result, the offline retailers have witnessed a downfall in not only the revenue but also in the footfalls in their physical stores.


In this market scenario, GiftsOnAir is coming to the rescue of the offline retailers and helping them to compete toe to toe with the ecommerce websites. GiftsOnAir believes that a customer is looking not just for convenience or the best deal but the whole shopping experience and thus focusing on offering uniquely crafted experience to every customer.

We agree on the fact that one should adapt and move ahead with time but won’t it be great if there is a medium that bridges the gap between the offline and the online? GiftsonAir is that very medium. Also, why wait for festivals to get special offers when you can get these offers 365 days, GiftsonAir is there for the offline retailers and it is here to stay.”
