Candles – At the Maeva Store, we like to consider ourselves something of candle connoisseurs, because we bring to you the most elegant and the most exquisite range of candles.

Torans – Marriage means family – for the newly married couple, it is the start of a new life and for many, it also means the entry to a new home. And what better gift for a loved one than a beautiful toran, which can adorn their entryway! Whether you want to pick out something in traditional colors such as orange and maroon, you will find them, but if you want something a little more modern, you can also find torans in light pink and fuchsia pink!

From small arrangements to large ones, there are plenty to choose from – so, let’s say, you want to pick out something that is small and delicate looking, you can pick from the range of succulents on offer or if you want to opt for something big, you could look at something like the Paris fleur table decor.
Photo frames – For a newly married couple, the one thing that they will want to show off will be their photos and given that there will be plenty clicked at the wedding and at the ceremonies, they will have several photos to choose from. However, when they have to make the choice from what type of photo frame to showcase their pictures in, there should be no confusion. The Maeva Store offers striking floral photo frames, which will only add to the charm of the photos.

There are certain smells that we always associate with pleasant memories – for some, it is the smell of earth, after the first rains, for others, it is the aroma of incense sticks in the prayer room. There are certain smells that always relax your mind and calm your body – these are the smells that remind you of something or someone nice or take you away to a world that is far away from the harsh realities of life.
Unfortunately for us, we are at a time in our lives, where things are not in the best of state and we need that positive reinforcement. Almost all of us are locked inside our own homes, with nowhere to go and not much to do at home. Many of us are also having to work from home, which can prove to be quite tough, especially when you have multiple people at home; on the other hand, people who stay alone will also tell you a similar tale that they too miss a certain sense of comfort.
However, if you are a regular shopper at the Maeva Store, then making an environment that comforts you and soothes you, should become a lot easier. Allow us to tell you a few simple tips and tricks that will help you stay focused a lot more easily, during these trying times.
First of all, clear out an area that you intend to use as your workspace and then take a little time to set it up. If you have any floral bouquets, table décor or succulents that you have already purchased from the Maeva Store, set them up to make your workspace pretty and inspiring. Now, let’s move on to creating the perfect atmosphere – let’s say you have been assigned to write an article on travel and tourism, you will want to be actually sitting on a sunny beach, with one of those exotic looking cocktails by your side. Unfortunately, that would not be possible, but you can always create that same atmosphere, by using fragrances that remind you of the ocean. You can choose from your gorgeous looking Amalfi Coast candles or you could look at Walk by the Beach, because these are sure to transport you to the coast and you will be able to feel your creativity ramp up several notches.
Now, let’s say, you need to get that extra energy to complete an urgent project for work, but your mind just refuses to wake up from this deep slumber like mood. The reed diffusers with some soothing spices, essential oils such as Lemon, Mandarin, Refresh, Energising, mood elevators such as Limitless and Walkin’ on Sunshine are great to pep you up and give you that zing in your step. And when you are done for the day, and just want to relax and retreat to some quiet corner of your mind, choose from the essential such as Spiritual, Patchouli, Serenity or mood elevators such as Space Of Your Own, Deep in the Forest or Quiet Rendezvous. And don’t worry if you don’t have all of these – use what you have and make sure that you add the rest to your wishlist!
The great thing about these essential oils and mood elevators is that you need not get any special aromatherapy sets – if you have any one of the Maeva Store sets – Owl, Bunny, Amore, or Red Heart, you can use them!
In case you have our wax sachet, White Tuberose or you have any of our fragranced sachets such as Seashore, Sandy Beach, Juicy Apples, Vanilla Spice, Gardenia, Exotic Garden, you can leave them hanging around anywhere in your home and their incredible fragrance will transport you to a better world.
Try doing any of the above and we are sure it will your lockdown a little more efficient and interesting.
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. At the Maeva Store, you can find so many things – from things that can embellish the front door to little knick-knacks that can adorn your bedroom; whether you want to gift something for the living room or pooja room, kitchen or even bathroom, it's all here.
Let’s start with the entrance of the home – whether you choose a traditional toran or a more contemporary wreath, you will find them both in abundance of designs, shapes and color palettes. Whether you want to pick the traditional colored marigold and red toran or you want a wreath that will their guests a warm welcome always, you can take your pick here.
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.
When you are considering something for the living or dining spaces, the Maeva Store has an absolute plethora of stunning choices. 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.
The Maeve Store also offers you an extensive range of fragrance diffusers and mood elevators, which can change the mood in any room, be it the living space, bedroom or even bathroom. Should you pick out the aromatherapy sets, you can enjoy your favorite fragrances anytime, any place and even on their own, they make for classy décor items. We suggest the Amore Aromatherapy set, the Moon Mist Diffuser, the Under the Mistletoe as well as the Orange and Cinnamon diffusers; and as for the mood elevators, there are so many to choose from, that we suggest you create a hamper, rather than sticking to just one!
Or in case you are getting confused about what to pick up, just go ahead and create a hamper with a little bit of everything! Shop the collection at The Maeva Store
It's that time of the year again – the new year has settled in and before you know it January will be over and February will have started. And as soon as January comes to an end, there is this feeling in the air; a feeling that only those who are truly madly deeply in love will be able to fathom. It's Valentine’s season and love is literally in the air, because no matter where you look, you will find something that reminds you of your special one – whether it’s the gorgeous red roses or the overdose of pink hearts that you can see on storefronts.
But when it comes to your special someone, you know that you want something that is out of the ordinary – you know that you don’t want to buy them just a bouquet of flowers or a box of chocolates. You want to get them something that not just oozes romance, but also shows the effort that you have put in to get them a gift that is just a unique as them. At the Maeva Store, we consider ourselves as somewhat experts when it comes to the most interesting, whimsical and romantic gifting options and as Valentine’s Day approaches, we invite you to take a look at what we have in store for you.
We agree that nothing shows love more than flowers, but the fact of the matter remains that fresh flowers will look great on the first day. By the second day, they will have started wilting and after the third day, you might be considering throwing those almost grey flowers into the trash. All you will be left will be the memory of how beautiful the flowers were – however when you choose to shop at the Maeva Store, you can have a gorgeous bouquet of dried flowers, which you can keep for as long as you want! For instance, when you look at our Pink Elegance Bouquet, you will see a beautiful collection of colors and carefully crafted flowers, which will last you a lifetime and that too without a drop of water! We have a huge range of bouquets and you can choose a color palette that your loved one loves.
You know that your beloved is a cut above the rest and you know that he or she might not be satisfied with a traditional bouquet, which is why at the Maeva Store we have a range of products that are floral in concept, but unique. For the metrosexual man who owns a walnut coffee table, there are floral table décor pieces like the Wonderland Table Décor and the Spring Treasure Table Décor; for the traditional romantic, there are Summer Fantasy Oval Wreath or the Regal Roses Floral Arrangement, which can be placed on the wall to create that atmosphere of eternal romance.
When you want to create an ambiance that is dreamy and straight out of a fairy tale, the one thing that you will most certainly need is candles. Nothing says romantic quite like the gentle, warm flickering light of the candle and when you have innumerable of them alight, it can become quite the grand gesture. At the Maeva Store, you will find candles in every color, size and a spectrum of shapes too and because Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, we have an entire stash of pink and red candles too! Make sure that you check out the Cupid and Psyche range of candles, which has plenty of options especially for Valentine’s Day. We suggest the Cupid and Psyche pillar candles and we think that many of you might also like the Pink Champagne Candle.
If this Valentine’s Day is the day you are planning to propose to your beloved, then here are some interesting ideas – use the floral arrangement of the Victorian Floral Bicycle as the ring holder or you could hide the ring inside a Mogra Gift Box! With the Maeva Store by your side, you can make your entire proposal a grand affair – pave the way with floral mats, so that your special someone doesn’t have to put their feet on the floor; decorate the entire room with our range of floral bouquets, get subtle fragrances going in the diffusers and light a candle in every corner of the room and then when you go down on your knees with a stunning ring in hand, there is no way that your special someone will be able to say no to you!
