Give us a brief introduction to your brand. What is it related to, and how it got initiated?
The word ‘Hadya’ is an Arabic word, and in English, it means gift. The idea was to disrupt the gifting industry, which was untouched. There was a lot of room for improvement. The model is about gifting your emotions to your loved ones with just a click.
Our research showcase that when people buy gifts for different people, they are not concerned much about the monetary exchange. Nonetheless, they want something perfect and as per their requirement. Hadya started its operations in 2019. We were available on Facebook, Instagram, and a dedicated website.
We began with customised gifts such as mugs, jewellery, etc. Some essential products, such as cakes and bouquets, were also available. Our model was strong enough for bakeries like Pie in the Sky and Sacha’s. They partnered with us at the beginning of our operations.
There are many gifting shops available online. How is Hadya different from all those brands?
Our customised services set us apart from others in the gifting industry. We cover every customer’s touchpoint. Firstly, our agents first understand the need of the customer and then offer a variety of products. Furthermore, people present in the industry usually sell what they have on their websites.
Most businesses are reluctant to amend their product list as per the customer’s needs. However, we are the opposite. We have listed numerous products on our channels to comfort those clueless about what to gift.
Who are the people behind Hadya?
The idea just popped out while discussing how people are deprived of quality gifts. We were two people in a room, Salman Hanif and Sajid Katiya.

Salman completed his bachelors from IBA Karachi and is currently pursuing his MBA from LUMS. Salman is passionate about doing business. He wants to become a successful entrepreneur. Moreover, Salman thinks of uplifting society with his innovative ideas and leadership qualities.
