Gifts with a twist
Pulling the Right Card
A pack of cards can indeed change fortunes, especially if the pack is made of gold. Homeshop18.com offers a variety of gold-plated playing cards. Made using 24k gold, a pure gold bar is compressed into a thin foil and fused with silicon to give it strength and durability. Each of these cards is non-tarnishable.
Available at homeshop18.com; Rs 835, Rs 999, and Rs 1,999 for the three variants
