The joyful festive spirit of Christmas has spread across the city. With a little more than a week left for the festival, the markets are soaked in the yuletide spirit and the shoppers are splurging on everything, from clothes to shining stars and Christmas trees to food and drinks.

This is one such occasion that lifts the spirit of the businessmen as they prepare to make merry with attractive offers and variety of knick-knacks for the final festive season of the year before bidding adieu to it.

There are plenty of choices jostling for attention in the stores from snowmen, stars, bells and baubles to mistletoes, streamers and the ubiquitous holly.

Gearing up for the season, Darling’s Paradise has introduced a special range of candles for Xmas.

These come in shapes of a wine glass with attractive colourful jelly wax that can light up the dinner table with its subtle luminescence.

Candles also come in other shapes and varieties like floating ones and candles in the shape of brightly coloured flowers. The store also has Xmas trees in various sizes and all the paraphernalia to spruce up your Xmas tree or decorate your homes.

Chocolates

The celebrations at Pages Book Centre promises to be bigger and better this year. Adding a special flavour to the season, the store has brought exclusive varieties of melting Xmas chocolates apart from a whole range of greeting cards, Xmas trees and decorations.

Get ready to welcome the friendly old man with his bagful of gifts from Pages, who will be going around the major junctions of the city to greet people with special surprises.

The store also gives a host of discount offers on greetings cards.
