This time around, gifts are getting kinkier. India’s third largest e-commerce site Snapdeal saw a rise in orders as people set out to celebrate the day. Interestingly, the sale of lingerie on Snapdeal doubled over the last year. “Bikini jewellery was a new entrant to top sellers on Snapdeal,” said the company.
