Huh, Amazon has quite the selection in India - who knew?

My girlfriend in the UK swears by Ali Express, shipping takes forever but the prices are right.

Just remember that you want a stainless steel head, and its good if it has holes in the base and a wavy bottom edge to let the air out.

It doesn't need to be overly powerful as it won't usually have to be cutting things up, more just mixing liquids together.

I think it's better to buy a good one once than many cheap ones. So check the reviews and buy the nicest one that your budget allows.
Another good place to look might be restaurant supply places.

Sometimes Thrift (second-hand) Stores have them, at least here in the US (I'm not sure if second-hand stores as big a thing where you live as they are here). Trying out a used cheap second hand one might give you a better idea of what features you want when it's time to invest more money.

If it's a stick blender you want, the most important-to-me feature is that the blending arm be removable for easy cleaning. A close second to that is that the blending arm be long for when I want to blend larger amount of oils. No one wants to use a SB and have the motor part get into the soap, which can happen if the blending arm isn't long enough.
