It’s tough when your loved one is far away from you. You miss them a lot, but you can’t meet them. The schedules are too busy to manage time to surprise them every week. In a situation like this, how will you show your loved one that they mean the world to you? The only resort to make them feel special is by sending them gifts. It surely cannot substitute your presence, but it reminds your partner how much you miss them, and how valuable they are. 

The gifts don’t need to be expensive. It’s the thought and love that you have invested while getting it for your partner. The loveliest gift could be a ticket to visit them, but we know that it is not the most affordable option. However, you can choose to send some tokens of love that you can easily customise according to your tastes and preferences.

Now when you have decided to send your loved one a gift, the real task of choosing the gift begins here. To help you make the right decision, here we have curated a list of love wrapped in gifts.

In the generation of 5G, distances are no more a hurdle for communication. The moment you miss someone, your smartphone is at the rescue. You can text, phone call or video call them. It has become so easy that the importance of handwritten letters has almost vanished. Writing a letter is very intimate and exclusive. It’s beautiful when you pen down your feelings for somebody. It brings tears of joy and pain. It is a keepsake that one can hold and cherish forever. 

To write a letter is not a very difficult task, but it takes time and contemplation to express your feelings. 

Flowers

Flowers are one of the pleasing things on earth. You don’t need to look for a special occasion to send flowers to your loved one who is living miles away. They are a token of love and affection that will brighten up their day. Find out which flowers they like the most, and send them a bouquet with a special message wrapped around it. If you aren’t able to find out what their favourite flower is, go with red roses. Sending flowers has become very easy these days; many websites are providing such services.

DIY Photobook

Memories keep you going when you are in a long-distance relationship. You scroll through the pictures of the times you were together and smile at those sweet memories. Making a DIY photobook can be a heartwarming gesture which will make you both nostalgic and happy. Every time you flip through the photographs, you will walk down the beautiful memory lane that you two created together.

You can buy a scrapbook or create one with loose sheets. Select some of your fondest memories, paste them in your scrapbook and write cute little captions below them. You can also convert this Photobook into a Table Calendar and put your craft to use.

If the photobook idea is not your thing, get a nice frame and place your favourite picture in it. 

Cakes

Your sweet presence is not there, but a cake can be a good idea. Sending cakes is an ongoing trend. Be it their birthday, your anniversary or an apology; a cake at midnight always wins the heart. These days you can send your bae their favourite cake with a click of a button. Thanks to websites like India Cakes that helps couples to surprise each other from miles away.

Getting customised merchandise for your loved is the best way of expressing your feelings to a person. One puts a lot of thought while choosing it; therefore, they are exclusive. From T-shirts to cushions, you can get everything customised. It will add a personal touch to the gift, and the concern you have put in will be evident. 

Gift Vouchers and Coupons

If Bae doesn’t approve of your shopping choices, give them the liberty to shop for themselves and send them gift vouchers and coupons. 

You can also give them a voucher for Spa or a day at Salon to relax. If you can’t be around, let them have a day pamper themselves.

Journal

If your loved one is fond of penning down her thoughts and ideas, a journal is a great idea. It will reflect that you respect them and their choices. Encouragement is the most significant gift that you can give to your loved one. You can buy a journal made of handmade papers or get one customised.

Headphones

Giving a cool pair of headphones can be a thoughtful gift. Your significant other would use them every day and will remember you every time they use it. These headphones are going to be with them on a movie night, or while listening to their favourite music, and most importantly while talking to you. How amazing would it be to listen to your bae’s voice in HD?

For the eternal love…

In times of technology, it’s easier to bridge the gap between two souls who are madly in love with each other. These gifts are nothing but an instrument to let the spark ignited. Your loved one will feel your presence even in your absence, what else could be better than this?

After Each Successful Film, Question Arises: What next?

This includes all - big as well as medium-range producers

With the kind of films that unspool every week, one can conclude that there is a dearth of not only ideas but also direction! A varied kind of films are being made. Each filmmaker trying to come out with something different. This includes all – big as well as medium-range producers. The idea seems to be taking a shot in the dark. It is all about taking chances.

Some producers are falling back on period costume dramas, which work out very costly and not every director’s cup of tea. This genre was avoided for a long time mainly because of these two reasons, capability and cost. Yet, we have had period films like “Bajirao Mastani” and “Padmaavat”, “Manikarnika” and “Kesari”. There have been a few flops in this genre like “Mohenjo Daro”, “Rangoon” and “Thugs Of Hindostan”. The backers of such films would do it only on the basis of saleable stars, coupled with a capable director. Still it often proves risky.

Each week, a new kind of film is dropped in the market. For instance, last week we had “Khandaani Shafakhana”, a film discussing sexual problems for those who can make sense of the title! For one, sex and problems related to it are not generally discussed in India. Delhi and surrounding areas do have such clinics but that does not make the subject acceptable all over.

One may have thought if Vicky Donor could work, why not take it a step further? An odd subject like “Vicky Donor” or “Piku”, very personal to people, does work. But they need to be woven into a plausible story and dealt with a fair amount of humour. Recent such films are “Piku”, “Padman”, “Toilet: Ek Prem Katha”. This is called reaching out to personal matters of people. Humour is a must since it delivers the message without making the proceedings seem mundane.

It seems filmmaking is all about inspirational and awareness films. A small film about a person few had heard about, “Paan Singh Tomar”, followed by “Bhaag Milkha Bhaag”, opened up a new genre – the biopic. “Neerja”, “MS Dhoni: The Untold Story” and “Dangal” followed in quick succession. The film industry calls this a �daur’ (trend). It does not last long, though.

Most writers who script stories like “Piku” or “Vicky Donor”, or directors who make films like “Dangal”, “Bhaag Milkha Bhaag” and “Neerja”, have always had this problem: What next? They usually have nothing that matches the earlier success. No maker seemed to have a worthy successor. So, they go back to usual claptrap and come a cropper.

There were also some biopics like “Manjhi: The Mountain Man” or “Sachin: A Billion Dreams” where the makers just chose to go with the trend but turned the film into a documentary. A film like “Sachin: A Billion Dreams” costs crores as royalty to the character on whose life it is based, as well as to acquire real life footage. The film on Sachin was a victim of failing to dramatise. The idea is to pick a life story and add a fair amount of fiction along with music as was done with the Dhoni film.

Akshay Kumar has become a torchbearer of the films that convert real-life stories into reel life sagas. He has been greatly successful in his endeavours. His image of being a thoroughbred nationalist probably adds to the acceptability of his films. His instincts and beliefs seem to be paying up so far.

Then, there is John Abraham. He loves to play the incredible hulk tackling major cases like the Rajiv Gandhi assassination or Pokhran nuclear tests. He has been partly successful.

It is believed that there are only seven basic storylines in this world. Films were made accordingly. There was a time when some makers stuck to making religion-based or mythological films while a few others only made horror movies. The mainstay for most makers, however, was romance and family socials. Action movies were not in vogue in the mainstream cinema till mid-1970 and action, in a measured amount, was a part of regular movies. Otherwise, the action movies as such were rated as B-Grade, released only at designated cinema halls and were left to actors like Kamran Khan and Sheikh Mukhtar. Dara Singh later introduced action movies where wrestling was the theme.

There were a few costume dramas and comedies. While most producers stuck to their formula of catering to the family audience, some even stuck to certain alphabets to name their films with. Producer J. Om Prakash (who passed away last week) named all his films starting with alphabet A as did producer Mohan Kumar. Another filmmaker, Arjun Hingorani, preferred alphabet K to name his films. Filmmakers, like many others, are quite superstitious and this trend of faith in a certain alphabet still prevails in filmmakers like Rakesh Roshan, whose films have titles beginning with K.

Now, the genres of family socials, horror and mythology have been taken away by television serials. Action films are accepted only coming from a couple of stars. There is little choice left for filmmakers.

The limited choice is between romance, action and comedy, with few writers and makers to justify the last named. While ideas are borrowed from foreign films (which includes this year’s National Award winner, “Andhadhun”), and films from South languages are being sought once again for remakes by a few.

So, after each successful film, the question arises: What next? From the records, the makers of “Piku”, “Bhaag Milkha Bhaag”, “Dhoni: The Untold Story”, “Dangal”, “Neerja” and many such films have either delivered flops or are at a loss for idea for their next!
