Bombay Dyeing came up with a creative concept just in time for Diwali in 2018 called Gifting Redefined. Finding an ideal gift for our dear ones may sometimes be quite tedious. Gifts such as dry fruits, sweets & chocolates are making way for non-traditional alternatives. Understanding the shift in the consumer preferences Bombay Dyeing, the flagship company of the Wadia Group added ‘Bedlinen’ as an alternate to traditional gifting. People always want to gift something memorable to their near and dear ones that would be cherished for long.
The new campaign on this concept narrates how Bombay Dyeing bed sheet is an ideal choice as a Gift with striking designs, rich textures and superior quality fabrics for this festive season.
The advertisement had already crossed 1 Million views on you tube within 2 days of campaign launch. The campaign had been conceptualized on the basis of changing consumer preferences towards gifting. Feedback from business partners and existing customers gave them an understanding that consumers are moving away from the traditional gifting like dry fruits & confectioneries which are consumables.
There was a demand for unique and long term gifting ideas. What can be better than gifting bed linen sets in varied colours, patterns and designs. It is an ideal gift for every occasion may it be marriage, festival, birthday, anniversary or housewarming.
