Do check the Janpath market for some quirky T-shirts and bags, beautiful lampshades, trendy jewellery and embroidered footwear.

You can also get gol gappas packed in any of the famous chat shops. They pack all masalas and water in sealed bags. All you need is to buy the gol gappas and boil potatoes and you are all set to have the famous Delhi gol gappas in your house.

Delhi also has some of my favourite book shops where the owners still read and actually recommend good books to book lovers. The best one being Midlands in Aurobindo Place market.

In case you are looking for trendy boutiques for clothes, home décor stuff etc then visit Hauz Khas Village and Shahpur Jat.
