Gifts: a doorstep to emotions 

Mohan belongs to a middle-class family and during his entire life, he saw how his father struggled to make him a successful career. The moment he got his first salary he wanted to gift something to his father to express his emotions. He thought of many options and at last, decided to gift a watch. 

But to select the watch he has set some parameters and even after visiting many stores nothing caught his eye. Suddenly one fine day he saw his boss wearing a premium watch and he could not take his eye off it. 

After inquiring from his boss he directly went to the Zimson watch showroom in Ampa SkyOne – Best Shopping Mall in Chennai and there he found many models which passed his pre-requisites. Finally, he got a wonderful watch and gifted his father, making him proud. 

This is the true story of one of my friends, compelling me to keep Zimsom watch at the first spot in this list. If you visit Ampa SkyOne apart from Zimson there are too many options available with the best facilities and ambience. You should visit this place at least once to understand the legacy of this mall. 


Gifts are special because the person for whom you are purchasing is special in your heart. But it is very important to select the perfect gift depending upon the time and person to whom you are going to gift. If you fail to select an appropriate gift, then the meaning and value of the gift are greatly reduced and all your efforts can go in vain.
