Diwali is a time for celebration all over the country. Weeks before the Festival of Lights arrives, people are busy preparing sweets, cleaning their homes, putting up lights and shopping. The shopping expeditions are not just to buy new clothes and home accessories, but also to pick up Diwali gifts for the special people in our lives, and for colleagues and business partners.
For years, Diwali gifting options meant people would exchange sweets, either homemade or readymade, or boxes of dry fruits bought especially for the occasion
However, things are slowly changing now. People are exploring different categories of gifts for Diwali. Electronics, home and kitchen accessories, clothing, shoes, cosmetics, expensive stationery and even paintings are finding favour among individuals looking to make their Diwali gift stand out from the crowd.
Don’t worry, you don’t need to follow suit. To make your Diwali gift special, you can spend more time and effort than money. Instead of purchasing a gift, why not try and create or put together a unique gift hamper for your loved ones? Not only will your gift be more memorable, but the receiver will feel more special simply because of the effort you took.
We’ve put together some unique Diwali gift ideas. Take your pick from one of them this festive season.
Our Top 5 Diwali Gift Ideas
#1 A fusion of teas
Know someone with a passion for tea? Why not put together a thoughtful selection of their favourite teas into a beautiful gift box. The receiver will be touched and amazed at your thoughtfulness. You can throw in a few handmade blends along with herb flavours as well as the more regular variety. With Diwali being a season of indulgence, a healthy gift option is always welcome.
#2 Say it with glass
Take a random selection of glass jars and transform them into magical gifts. Create a handmade design using gels, paints, sparkle and sequins. You can also write a message on these delicate articles for a special person. These handmade gifts will generate much appreciation wherever they go. You can fill the jars with decorative items or fairy lights or a selection of candles to create the festive mood of Diwali.
#3 Aromatherapy meets celebration
Diwali is the time for celebrating. And if your gift can be one to help celebrate Diwali that makes it even more special. How about combining aromatherapy with light accessories? Simply take unscented candles, wrap cinnamon sticks all around and tie with a string to create a rustic and exotic gift. When lit, the cinnamon sticks will give out a wonderful aroma and usher in the festive spirit.
