A start-up founded in 2012, Bangalore-headquartered Caricme offers users to send out personalised gifts. It differentiates from other gifting portal in the manner that it lets users convert pictures to caricatures, that can be put on objects to be used as table-top showpieces, clocks, kitchen tiles, plaques, mementos, T-shirts etc.

The firm provides gifts for Birthday, Anniversary, Wedding and Farewell and according to the interests, budget, location, age, occasion etc of the recipient.

When asked what problems they are trying to solve, the team told iamWire “One is the problem of gifter/ Buyer who is always grappling with the issue of finding the perfect gift according to the interests, budget, location, age, occasion etc of the recipient. Second is the problem at the recipient end, who is generally unhappy with the gift received either because he/she already have it or because it’s of no use. These two problems have made the exchange of gifts a very formal and uninteresting exercise, both for the sender and recipient. Caricme combines its clients’ desires for a thoughtful, personal gesture with all the best-loved nuances of conventional gift-giving.”
