The act of gift giving for special occasions and holidays has become a strong part of our activities and we tend to rely more and more on date calendars to remind us of those upcoming events. If informal selection of gifts was once trendy, today it is more favorable a practice to invest time and thought into the selection of a personal gift. Unique handmade jewelry, Judaica, and fashion gifts produced by Israeli designers and artisans are gaining in popularity.
As we invest more time and effort into personalizing a gift, Internet handicraft sites like Israel’s U-boutique.com, provides a convenient solution to our holiday gift needs by offering a wide selection of Made in Israel handmade and unique gift offerings. The recognition of the quality handicrafts produced by Israeli artisans is due in part to the advent and popularity of Social networks like Facebook and Twitter. Photos and descriptions of Israeli gift items are shared with friends and loved ones of buyers around the globe. The result has been that many unique Israel made gift items have been purchased by buyers in Asia, Australia, Europe, and North and South America.
“There is no doubt that the creations of Israeli designers are becoming trendy in the world of fashion,” says Nir Golshtein, Marketing Manager for U-Boutique. “Israeli designers and artisans have learned to adapt themselves and to offer their personalized creations as suggested gift items to buyers around the world. We now represent more than 200 Israeli designers and shop owners who remain current regarding new trends and directions in the world of design, while at the same time growing into a trend themselves.”
As the Jewish New Year approaches Israeli designers are offering a wide selection of jewelry and traditional Judaica gift items for purchase through the U-Boutique site. Personalized contact with many of these Israeli artists enables a buyer to customize his/her purchase making for an even more rewarding holiday gift giving experience.
