Deepavali, or Diwali, is the festival of lights, which symbolises victory of light over darkness, good over evil and knowledge over ignorance. This year’s Diwali is just around the corner and everyone would be in search for the perfect gift to give to their dear ones. So, here are 5 great Diwali gift ideas to help you out with:
- Flowers & Cakes
These are the perfect gifts for special occasions. You can prefer to gift your loved ones roses – pink, yellow, red or any other color, gift baskets comprising of cakes and bakery items, and a variety of flowers. You can also consider beautiful bunches, stunning bouquets, delicious cakes and you’ll also find combos of these items in the market.
- Candle Lights, Décor Lights & Traditional Diyas
Since Diwali is the festival of lights, most of the Indian families prefer decorating the interiors and exteriors of their homes with different designs, colours and lamps. These can be the most significant and appropriate gifts for the occasion.
- Indian Sweets, Chocolates & Cookies
The diversified geographical features and cooking cultures in the different regions of our country adds diversity to the range of sweets we have. You can buy different kinds of sweets special to different regions and cultures. If you can buy them from the most renowned makers of that particular sweet, it works out better. These gifts add spice or should we rather say sweetness to the festive celebrations of your loved ones and will be remembered for a lifetime.
- Religious Gifts, Statues & Figurines
Being a religious festival, there would be arrangements for worships in most Indian homes. Religious gifts such as the utensils required for the poojas and the idols of Lord Ganesha & Goddess Lakshmi can be the most relevant gifts that would wish good fortune and blessings for your loved ones.
- Gift Cards
This is the most practical gift one can buy, though some might argue they are too impersonal. But everyone will agree that they are better than receiving something that you cannot use. Plus, both the parties can avoid the awkwardness of when the receiver doesn’t like the gift. Gift cards guarantee gifts people love, saves money and time, and with the online gift cards you don’t even have to leave home for buying.
- Giving off sweets is an important tradition for almost every festival in India, especially Diwali. While spreading the sweetness, also remember to take care of your own health and that of your close ones. Gifting a glucometer, especially to people with diabetes, goes a long way in showing that you care for them. May health win over diseases! And a happy festive season to everyone.
