Mother’s Day with Woohoo!

Mother's Day, mother's day gift, mother's day e-gift

“Mama” – this wonderful word has countless wonderful emotions attached to it. Any language, any age, any gender, this word spells unconditional love. It was not until I became a mother that I realized the amount of patience, love, sacrifice, selflessness that goes into making a mother. Mothers Day! Thanks to the western influence, our country has started to celebrate relationships in newer ways!

It Was A Really Unexpected Surprise

I was caught by surprise this Mother’s Day! My kids tried hard to make the day as special as possible. Bed coffee, followed by breakfast (what ever their little fingers and minds could cook up), questioning glances endeared me and even before I could hug them to my heart’s content, they presented me the best gift I could have ever asked for. A wonderful Mother’s Day gift card, beautifully enveloped with a bouquet of yellow and pink roses, all with the help of their great daddy of course!  I went speechless, what an amazing gesture! Opening the envelope, a beautiful gift card from Hidesign stared at me.  Lunch was ordered and I was treated like a queen the whole day!!

A Mother’s Day To Remember With Woohoo

I have always cherished bags from Hidesign. Their rich leather, exquisite patterns, stylish models, premium colors set them apart. It surely makes you feel special to be carrying one! Each Hidesign product is handcrafted with much care and finesse. The very next day, I went to the nearest Hidesign outlet to pick up my gift. My family gifted me their love in the most awesome way! Thank you Woohoo! It definitely feels glam  carrying the  most  chic and gorgeous bag you could ask for!!! – Annie Jose

#WoohooDiaries4

By Rujuta Jadhav

Teachers are one of the greatest people you come across in your life. They are not only the selfless givers but also the mentors in your life. I would like to thank Arpeeta ma’m for creating an environment of enthusiasm for learning, appreciation for growing and room for making mistakes along the way. I am grateful to have her as my teacher. She has treated her job not like a profession but her passion. She has been a teacher who never showed me the way, instead taught me how to search for it myself. She has been not just a teacher but a parent to me. No amount of thanks will be enough for all that she has done for me. I found guidance, friendship, discipline and love, everything, in one person. Without her, I would have been lost. She has inspired me to do better in life and guided me throughout. Thanks for being a true mentor.

There are people who come into our lives and leave a burning sensation that lights up inside each of us. In my life there is a Ravi Lekhwani Sir, who I met twelve years ago. He has had the biggest impact in my life and has kept this feeling of hope inside me.

I am able to look into the mirror and, for one of the first times ever, be proud of the person that I am. You believed in me, and that’s all that I really needed. You took the time to care, and not only that, but you made sure that I knew you cared. That has made the difference.

I remember one incident. I went for an interview and because of low confidence I was not able to complete the task they had given me. I felt disheartened and felt like a loser. In place of going home, I went to my computer teacher at the institute. He ask me to do the same project which tha interviewer had given me and I failed. He tried to boost me and remarked that “being disheartened can’t make you a winner. If you want to be a winner, then keep rolling.” His words had done a motivational magic and pumped a lot of confidence in myself, resulting in me getting my dream job at the leading university as a computer lecturer.

We will probably never forget that person because we owe a little part of our identity, who we truly are, to them. Without them we might never have become the person we are today.

#WoohooDiaries3

By Bandini Pravin

I still remember my teacher always used to say that it doesn’t matter how much marks you get in your exams or whether you have topped in the class or not. The most important thing is how well you can implement your learnings into your life and make it better. She used to always say that all work and no play is not a balanced life. One has to go out and play with others, meet others to learn something more which no school or teacher can ever teach. Every day brings in some new learning for you which can be in any format and the day you are not learning even one new thing then it’s a waste of that day. I really respect her for her thoughts and it has actually made lot of change in my perspective of life…. :)

My teacher, Priyanka Jain, was my favourite teacher in school. She has always been my mentor and my inspiration. When I was in school, I would get nervous and stammer while talking. All my classmates would make fun at me. I would then feel bad and cry for hours. At times I did not even feel like going to school. But my teacher made life in school easier for me. She requested the students to help me rather than tease me when I stammer. She would reward star points for students who did good deeds. Thus, my classmates stopped making fun of me when I stammered. They would help me with my speech. My teacher too put in lots of effort. She mentored me constantly and made me feel positive and happy. Every day after school she would spend an hour teaching me and training me. She would fill me with her positive thoughts. Within few months I regained my self-confidence and I actually stopped stammering. She also taught us Math in school and at that time I actually had the least interest in that subject. She realized that from the very beginning and so she always got me involved in every mathematics activity or project in class. In her own way she would motivate me. She would explain the same problem to me over and over again, till I actually understood it. She was very patient with me. Initially when I would score less, she would not shout at me. In fact, she would motivate me to work hard. Thus, I got influenced by her & I put in all my effort to study. Very soon I began to understand math easily and I soon loved the subject too. I owe all my success to her because she taught me that perseverance is the key to success.

From her I learnt to try and try till I succeed. She helped me build up a base for my self-confidence. My teacher has been my true inspiration.

#WoohooDiaries2

By Sakshi Bansal

When I think back to all the learnings that took place up until now I have to say that my idol and my favourite teacher is my wonderful mother, Poonam Bansal.

My fabulous mother has always been a great inspiration and supporter in each and every thing, throughout my life. The bond between me and my mother is not only limited to mother and daughter but it is far beyond it, as she is a great friend, a teacher and a trainer too. She represents a true picture of peace, contentment and courage and poured all these qualities in me to make me a better person. She has always taught me not to flummox and never say die but stand up to whatever the situation be.

She always says this catchy phrase…

“Ya to koi chiz asaan hoti hai ya bahut asaan, mushkil kuch nahi hota”, which really helps me in achieving anything I want.

Thank you so much mom for being such A Great Inspirer, An Empower and An Engager.

I am truly blessed and treasured to have you.

By Manju Nihalani

The sudden loss of my father left me forlorn and distressed. I was in 11th std. I lost my interest in my studies. One day my Principal, Sister Mabel, called me to her office. She gave me hug and asked me to cry my heart out. She spent almost an hour with me. Talking about my family, my dreams, my goals. Once I was calm and poised as she made me understand that life does not ends here. I have to be strong enough to face all the tragedies, hardships and difficulties.

Her compassion, ardent love, encouragement, appreciation once again made me lively and confident. I passed my board exams with flying colours.

For me, a TEACHER is an Angel. A person who can judge your virtues and vices, who can bring out the best in you. From the core of my heart I am always thankful to Sister Mabel who believed in me and made me a better person to live in this world. Sharing a memorable picture when I met her almost after 22 years and enjoyed the same warmth and comfort.

Birthday gift ideas for your roommate on his birthday

Gift, gifting, e gift voucher, Woohoo app, gift cards, gift vouchers, e gift cards

He’s your Friday night beer-buddy, and he’s the one who does your laundry when you forget it. You burn the rotis and he makes the daal too thin, but he’s the one you cook with. He’s the one who tells your mom on the phone that you’re busy at work when you don’t want to be disturbed. There’s so much you do with your roommate – so how do you plan to make his birthday special for him this year?

Gift him a gift card

You know your roommate best – his little hobbies, his likes, dislikes and the things he collects. So what’s he into? Music? Mobile phones? Stylish and funky watches, sunglasses, and belts? Perhaps less funky, but classic and stylish watches? Sportswear, sports shoes and sports equipment? Evaluate his latest passion and buy him a gift card from the right brand.

For those stylish watches and sunglasses, Fastrack is your best bet. For the latest mobiles and smartphones, you could get him a gift card from Croma, E-zone or The Mobile Store. If he’s more of the elegant, gentlemanly type who likes classic, stylish watches, think in terms of Helios and Titan. If he’s a sports freak, you cannot do better than Puma, or Nike gift cards.

If you want to make his birthday gift more personal, you can gift him instant e-gift vouchers with the Woohoo app – to which you could add your selfies, pictures of the fun times you’ve had together, a voice note and text.

Basically, all you need to know is what he likes. Buying the right card takes only seconds!

The #MyWoohooTeacher contest that ran for about a week on Woohoo’s Facebook page saw heartfelt messages pouring in from across the country. Students (young and old) expressed their gratitude towards their teachers. #MyWoohooTeacher, Teacher's Day, Woohoo.in

Here are two of the winning posts from the #MyWoohooTeacher contest.

Simar Chugh:

#MyWoohooTeacher #TeachersDay @WoohooGifting

Teacher is a light that shows us the right path for our bright future. She is a guiding force to make us excel in everything we do. She keeps on motivating and encouraging us throughout our learning period. My English teacher Harvinder Kaur was a real gem. I feel great to be taught by her. She always used newer methods to explain various topics to me. She taught all of her students to work extremely hard to earn the grades that they received. She never hesitates to listen to problems of the students and she is always ready to help anyone at any time. I feel she resembles a candle which consumes itself to light the way for others. She taught me many values and nurtured many virtues which I cherish till date. Thanks for instilling great values during my formative years. I remember you often. Thanks for being there.

Ishani Dhar Dutta:

#MyWoohooTeacher #TeachersDay @WoohooGifting

My favorite teacher, Ira Gayen, is the best teacher in this world. Wherever I go in my life I will always remember that I have excellent leadership as a teacher – you. I found the manual, friendship, discipline and love, all rolled into one. Without you, I would have been lost. THANKS for guiding me, inspiring me and making me what I am today.
I will always be grateful for all the hard work and effort that you put in the field of education for me. You are a friend, philosopher and guide, all formed in one person.
Her lessons were extremely interesting. She was efficient and absolutely fascinating with her lovely personality. She made every student feel like one of her own. She shaped my destiny and gave me confidence. She encourages us to ask questions so that we may be able to understand the subject well. She never loses patience with those students who take long to grasp the subject. She is a great combination of kindness and strictness.

She is courteous to her colleagues and the principal of the school. I have never seen lose her temper. She makes me love going to school. She is an ideal teacher and a good role model. She always used to make the class laugh and she always had everyone’s attention. I don’t ever remember a single time when she had to tell anyone to be quiet. All the students had a natural respect for her.

Aapse hi sikha, aapse hi jaana, Aap hi ko humne guru hai maana, Sikha hai sab kuch aapse humne, Kalam ka matlab aapse hai jaana.

Thank You so much for being with me in every path of my Life like a Supportive backbone…I love you and Miss you for all the difficult MATH Calculations.

Gifts for your friends relocating to a new city

woohoo.in, gift card, gift cards, gift voucher, gift vouchers, gifts, gift ideas, gifting, e gift cards, e gift voucher, relocation gifts, relocation gift ideas

While it’s exciting to move to a new city, it can also be tiresome. Relocating to a different city poses a number of challenges to a couple. For one thing, they have to sort out where they’ll live, how they’ll commute, where to send kids to school, how to arrange for amenities and so on. These challenges will take some time to overcome. Be sure to support and cheer your friends with gifts that they can use in their new home!

Let your gifts help them furnish their new home

While relocating to a new city, it becomes necessary to get rid of several belongings and move with a lighter load. Most people need to buy new furniture for their new home. Your friends might be wondering where and how to buy new furnishings and home goods. If you know a bunch of their friends, you could all pool in and buy the relocating couple a gift card from The Home Stop, Lifestyle, Shoppers Stop, Central or @Home. These are large shopping malls that sell every imaginable item of furnishing and home equipment one can want.

Gift them a well-deserved break!

Relocating to another city could be physically and mentally exhausting. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could gift your friends a short and nice trip or an experience to unwind, feel refreshed and good about the new possibilities that are in store for them? How about a gift voucher for a fine dining experience? You can choose a restaurant based on the couple’s favorite cuisine, such as Mainland China for Chinese, Spaghetti Kitchen for Italian, Oh! Calcutta for some Bengali cuisine or a host of other interesting options. Or, send them both to PVR Cinemas for a nice movie together. A nice and short weekend trip is also a great gift idea. You could pick a gift card from MakeMyTrip.com or Cleartrip.com.

Gifts that won’t be misplaced

You like the idea of gifting them these gift cards, but fear they might happen to misplace the physical card in the whole process of packing, moving and unpacking? There’s a perfect workaround! You can gift all of this via the Woohoo App. This way your friends will receive your e-gift voucher on their mobiles and will not run the risk of losing it. Not just that. To make the gift even more special, you could personalize it with pictures of fond memories, a voice note or a text message.

You know they’ll thank you for your warm gesture!

What to gift my team member on his birthday?

Gift, gifting, e gift voucher, Woohoo app, gift cards, gift vouchers, e gift cardsIf you’re managing a team of people, you know team work is crucial for the success of any project.

You know it, we know it and your team members know it– they are important to you.

What Would You Do For A Family Member’s Birthday?: Most people spend a minimum of 8 hours at work, and a maximum of anything up to 24 hours on occasion. Your team is your extended family, and there’s no two ways about it. So what would you do if it’s your brother or father’s birthday? Wouldn’t you get him something really nice? Yes, you would. That’s what families do.

Birthday Gift Cards Make The Best ‘No Headache’ Gifts: Think about it – if you have a team of 10 people, how much time would you be spending shopping for gifts? Imagine the time you would need to buy gifts for all your teammates. With gift cards and gift vouchers, you only save yourself the time and energy but also gift your team mates the ability to select what they want from over 100 top retail brands – all this from the comfort of your desk. With Woohoo.in, the gift cards superstore, all your gifting needs are met with just a few clicks.

Which Gift Cards Would Suit Your Team Member Best?: You’ve worked with him, you know him best. Is he a sharp dresser? Then consider gift cards from P N Rao, Marks & Spencer, Van Heusen, Shopper Stop and so on. Is he crazy about tech? How about a gift card from Croma, The Mobile Store or E-Zone? Loves watches? Think of Titan, Helios and more. You have plenty to choose from.
