For years, wedding gifts were always the same – you could gift the newlywed's crockery, silverware, sets of glasses or teacups, lamps or the easiest way out, some cash inside an envelope. More recently, people have opted for gift vouchers, because it saves them the trouble of having to think of getting something unique and innovative and many feel that a gift voucher allows the newlyweds to buy something they will like or want.
But when you come to the Maeva Store, you will realize that you want to pick up gifts for the newlyweds on your own, because what we have on offer is beautiful, unique and crafted to wow! As a matter of fact, we are so confident that even though you might be here to shop for a loved one, you will end up buying something yourself too.
When you are shopping for newlyweds, you need to remember that they will want something that will work well with their new home. Their home could be a brand new one or it could be one they are renovating to make their own, but everything they add to the house is what will make it their home.

Alternately, you could consider a floral rangoli mat, which can be kept on the floor, kept on a cabinet or even hung up on the wall, a little DIY that can be done easily in case one needs to play around with the decor and this will ensure multiple use of the gift too. We suggest the Aaral Rangoli Mat for the traditional, the Tisya Rangoli Mat for the truly feminine, and the Enchanted Rose Rangoli Mat for those who prefer the classics.

If you are looking for something that is simple and classy, you could check out our range of candles – from taper candles to tea lights, from pillar candles to candles in tins. We love the Ceramic Pineapple Candle for its sense of whimsy, the tuberose 12oz wedding jar for its sense of elegance and the Monogram Candles for their sense of exclusivity.
There are also several floral décor items that will look great anywhere around the house, such as the Aster Gift Cycle or the Victorian Floral Bicycle. These can make a great addition to the coffee table, side table or even on the crockery cabinet. You could also look at table décor items, which could easily become statement pieces for the dining table or even the coffee table in the living room. Our suggestions include the Wonderland Table Décor, Purple Haze Table Décor, and the Vintage Table Décor.

Let's get the basics right first. Do you know what exactly are Mood elevator oils?
The Mood elevators offer a respite for stressed-out souls with a range of essential oils to lift you out of the doldrums and help you look forward with a newfound, positive attitude.
Next, how do these scents affect your mood?
The Mood elevator oils can either be inhaled or applied to skin.
It turns out that your sense of smell is the most powerful of all your five senses. In fact, the deep limbic center—the part of your brain that controls your emotions is connected to your olfactory system, which means that different scents can affect your mood or evoke certain memories and emotions.
When inhaled, odor molecules travels through the nose and affect the brain, through a variety of receptor, one of which is the limbic system.
When mood elevator oil is applied to the skin, their healing components are absorbed into the blood stream by the pores and hair follicles.
5 Mood elevator oils that will help you with anxiety.
Firstly, what is anxiety?
A mental health disorder characterized by feelings of worry, anxiety, or fear that are strong enough to interfere with one’s daily activities.
Anxiety is a tough battle to face day in and day out, which makes having a natural solution, such as an essential oil blend, important. Here we are breaking it down for you the natural ways to fighting Anxiety. Read to know which blends will help you get through the day peacefully.
Limitless: Limitless combines exotic tea-tree, juniper, frankincense, and myrrh to create a spicy yet sweet aroma with multiple layers of softness. This blend has an enticing and enchanting aroma that works with your body’s natural chemistry to create a complimentary aroma. This blend of essential oil calms you down.
Suggested use: Place a few drops of Limitless oil onto a cotton ball or handkerchief. Inhale the aroma two to three times to help relieve anxiety.

With a soothing aroma, Feelin’ lucky is packed with essential oils that can boost immunity, increase euphoria while also relaxing the system, thus being the best pick for a healthy life.
