As we settle into the festive season, it’s time for cleaning, shopping, indulging in delicious food and of course, decorating your home. Finally, after two long years, the season shopping is back in full swing, with the biggest festive exhibitions showcasing physical festive edit pop-ups.

Here are the best festive season pop-ups worth a visit in Delhi.

A one-stop-shop for all your home accents, Mi Casa Collection is back with a bang this year. From art to home interiors and spatial design inspiration, the two-day festive pop-up houses it all.

Sharing a few tips for the festive and gifting season Sonali Batra and Akshita Sekhri, Co-founders Mi Casa Collective weighed in.
“While planning a gift for my loved ones, I love to curate unique pieces that would fit perfectly into their home and complement their personality. I am always on the lookout for new decor brands and quaint collectables. Some of my favourite gifting pieces include English tea sets, colourful enamel cookware, victorian quilted table linen and quirky decor centrepieces.” – Sonali Batra
“Post-pandemic gifting is all about as personal as it gets. Instead of doing cookie-cutter gifts, mindful gifting is the need of the hour. I always try and customize the gift as per the host to see what they would like or use rather than just gift something in bulk. Something indigenous and sustainable is always what I try and incorporate in my gifting. Potted plants or earthenware is what I would choose to gift this season.” Akshita Sekhri
