Gift yourself a Snow Tree for this Christmas

When someone says Christmas, Santa Claus would be the first thing that would come to our minds. The Gifts that Santa presents to the children at night during the joyous festival is often shown in many cartoons. The Gift Hub is one such gift décor that was opened just two weeks ago and is located at Red Fields Road, Puliakulam, Coimbatore.

The shop has a variety of Christmas gifts and articles for decoration including a few new arrivals like Snow Tree, Fiber Optic LED Tree, Dancing Cap, Climbing Santa Claus, LED Candle Lights, Poly-marble Crible Set, Snowman Pen, Santa Pen with Lights, Santa Costume set and so on. The price of the gifts range between Rs. 70 and Rs. 12,000. For the first-time, the female Santa costume has been introduced to 1-30 age group at a starting price of Rs. 580 with both Velvet and Cotton material.


Ginu Mol George , a 21-year old B.Com graduate, who was working in an animation company at Saravanampatty resigned her job to help Mr. George Antony, her father to look after the shop. “When my parents suggested the idea of opening a shop for Christmas, I got interested. At first we planned it as a seasonal shop, but with the overwhelming response from the customers, we have decided to continue to run the shop beyond the festival,” said a delightful Ginu, who is also planning to do a part time MBA to become a professional entrepreneur.

“It’s been only two weeks since we opened the shop. But, in this short time I came across quite a number of people from whom I have learnt a lot of patience,” says Ginu who had some interesting experience with transgenders, who visited their shop recently. “We are generally highly prejudices against the transgenders. But, I found the prejudice unfounded when some transgenders visited our shop. They were very kind and did not even bargain as much as the usual customers do,” added a beaming Ginu.

A sportsperson herself, the 18-year old Jincy Mol George is a national level basketball player representing Bharathiar University and is pursuing her degree at a private college in the region. “Instead of sitting at home and getting bored, I have a schedule in the evening now, coming to the shop and helping my sister and parents, which is a new experience,” she said.

“Gaining the attention of the locals, The Gift hub is also planning for an online platform in the future,” says George Antony and Tessy George. – Tamil Meganathan.
