7 Unique Gifts For Men (To Break The Monotony)

Guys and gals, let’s be real. Men have limited options when it comes to gift options. I was browsing creative ideas for a gift for a friend and lo and behold there was just the basics available. And I ain’t shunning those basics. I mean who doesn’t like receiving an expensive perfume or a bottle of wine but come on! It’s sad, really, that men don’t get to have the wide array of options that women seem to be bestowed with.

P.S. For all of you interested in buying one of these presents, I’ve linked the websites to the pictures. I feel very cool about doing this!

The Single Girl Perspective: The Reality of Indian Weddings – Things People Say

Choc-a-block was our November and December with Big Fat Indian Weddings and our dates were *drum roll please* EACH OTHER. And after the excitement, entertainment, selfies, and indulging in some real good food was over, we started noticing a inevitable pattern. No matter where we went, or who we spoke to, it was almost like all the people, specifically Aunties  (sorry Aunties, we still love you), had a script they adhered to. And we were target practice!

Amongst the many things we had to listen to, the following are a few that we had to bear the brunt of, over and over and over again and what our thoughts were. Phew! Continue reading “The Single Girl Perspective: The Reality of Indian Weddings – Things People Say”

DIY Sweaters, For Mugs!

Its the typical North Indian winter. It’s cold. It’s lazy. And tis’ the season when you crave delicious hot beverages. So trying out my beloved Gayatri’s hot chocolate recipe, as a cure to my dull mood on a cold Thursday afternoon, seemed absolutely perfect. Let’s take a minute to appreciate what an amazing recipe it is and how any of you who haven’t yet tried it are missing out on a cup filled with goodness and chocolate and warm hot winter love! Those of you who are yet to try it, here is the link. http://twogirlsandcoffee.com/winter-hot-chocolate/   image   Anyhow, I had a small issue. And much heard in the typical Indian household too, “Chai thandi ho gayi!”. (For our non-hindi reader “The tea has gone cold!”). Disaster. No less. Either calls for reheating of the beverage, a task so unnecessary. Or gulping down your drink before it turns tepid. Or making another cup full that takes a whole lot of work. But there is a cure. And a rather cute one! A warmer or sweater for you mugs. Here’s a very very simple DIY to keep those mugs and cups warm this winter season! ❤️    image   DIY MUG SWEATER: *Christmas Season Special*  🌟🎄🎅🏼🎁🎉 1) Go buy yourself a pair of cheap but cute looking socks, winter prints, woolen, and bright and colorful ones works so well. 2) Now take your mug and fit into the top part of your new woolen sock, where the rim is snug, and nicely measure the length till the bottom rim of the mug. 2) Get a pair of scissors and cut the sock where it touches the bottom part of your mug. Make an inch long slit in the middle for the mug handle. 4) Now pour your hot beverage, and your DIY Sweater for your mug is ready. xoxo Tag us in pictures if you do try this little fun winter DIY activity. 🤓 @twogirlsandcoffee on instagram Or hashtag #twogirlsandcoffee #artistrybysahej   😊

What Women Want in Their Men…

Every girl expects a certain amount of respect and love. The chivalry that surrounds a gentleman can never be over taken by the lure of feminism. Do not get me wrong! I am the first to stand up for equal rights and women power but I still believe in the olden values. The ones that seem to have gotten swept under the rug.

Winter Hot Chocolate

So I have a thing about winters. I’m not the biggest fan of them. Rather I look like one awkward penguin or rather polar bear right when November begins. My fluffy blankets, oversized sweaters, furry slippers, and any other overly warmth providing item seem to never leave my side. That’s just one of my many quirks. I love to hate the winters.

Cheeky Cocktails!

“Cocktails, please..?!”

I think I can go out on a limb here and say that the art of concocting a cocktail is one of extreme finesse, technique and accuracy. Or as you all know, a favourite word of mine, an artistry.

Why then, do we take cocktails for granted. It’s a lot like baking, once the measurement is out of the window, the key essence of the cocktail is lost, leaving you with just a mix of tinctures, yet the paradox of this rather technical art, lies in its scope to mix and match, alter and create potions, hybrids and combinations as per your taste, mood and interest!
