Never judge a book by its cover, they say, but how can we not judge when the expectations don’t match the reality?
Haven’t we all been in a place where we had to smile and pretend to like a gift even though we couldn’t help but wonder, what is this? Is this really for me?
Our expectations remain unmatched when the reality is often deluding.
We might know what we want, but do our loved ones? Keep reading to know the epic fails that occur when the art of gifting hits the battle of Expectations vs Reality.

From yours truly
After reading the card that you made all by yourself with your store bought glitter and stickers, not forgetting the use of multiple sketch pens and personalizing the card with anecdotes of the friendship you share – he is bound to feel so special and be eternally grateful for your handcrafted bliss! Right?
Sorry to burst your bubble, but no. A messy card with glitter coupled with bad handwriting is a recipe for a disaster not a memorable token of love. A handmade card is cute and all, but a simple, generic card hardly holds to today’s standard of gifting. Pssssst! Want to up your card game? Deal Delight’s got you. Personalized explosion boxes are what you need and we’re more than ready to deliver. Whether it be gifts for girls or gifts for guys, we’ve got it all. It’s the age of customized gifts, buy your explosion boxes today at Dealdelight.in!
Creative with collages
Since my friends put up collages wishing their friends on Instagram and Facebook, I have to do it too, right? It’s expected of me! But I want to give a present. How about I make a collage with all the pictures and stick them on paper and gift that! Nothing can go wrong, the pictures are beautiful, I’m certain it’ll be cherished.
WRONG! An A4 sheet with a print of a collage made by an amateur doesn’t scream ‘cherishable’.We don’t want to be the bearer of bad news, but nobody wants a piece of paper on their birthday! The collage will receive a shy smile but calling that a present will definitely receive a giant frown.
Pssssst! We’ve got professionals on our team who can jazz up your present. Deal Delight is coming to be known for its customizable products. Ditch the self made collage and opt for personalized albums. We all love pictures, let’s cherish them forever by bringing back the all in one album! Shop at Dealdelight.in.
Painting isn’t hard
Don’t we all think we’re Picasso the second we pick a paint brush? You’re certainly going to use all colours and make a masterpiece that can be sold for millions! Not only is it a gift for your mother, but it is a gift for everybody, nay, gift for mankind.
Utter confusion. What did you even paint? Your abstract piece of art may make your mother say ‘I like it’ but nobody else will. The truth hurts, we’re sorry. Not everybody can paint, maybe you should drop your brushes and pick a phone and do some online shopping.
Pssssst! Leave it to the pros. We at Deal Delight harbour painters who can blow your mind away with their skills. From classic scenery paintings to resin art, we’ve got it all! If you can think it, we can paint it. Head over to Dealdelight.in today!
I drew you!
Portraits – we all know a well made portrait of someone you love makes a lovely present. The streets of Paris has many portrait artists, but being in India, this task of sketching out a person is bestowed upon a simpleton. She sharpens her pencil, places a fresh sheet of paper and is ready to capture the very essence of her beloved. Success is assured, isn’t it?
NO! Look at that, you’ve made him cry. Your portrait resembles a cartoon character! Portraits are hard work. Even artists shy away from the task of sketching a person because it’s so hard. Someone who can barely draw a sting figure cannot succeed in drawing a portrait, but you have succeeded in breaking his heart.
Pssssst! We know portraits are a lot of work but we don’t mind doing it just for you! Head on over to Dealdelight.in to be greeted by artists whose skills are at par with Leonardo Da Vinci. Don’t take our word for it, find out for yourself!
