Chocolates, Sweets and Dryfruits

You can never go wrong with chocolates and sweets! Diwali festivities are the time for indulging in all the carbs, sugars and fats – it’s the season after all!

Stick to the basics and take the classic route – a bouquet of flowers. Everyone loves receiving flowers, and we couldn’t imagine a simple yet personal way to express love and admiration than a bouquet of flowers. The best part about gifting flowers is that you will never run out of options to choose from! Reds, violets, blues, pinks, you can pick, choose and select from a spread of flowers, personalize it and handmake your very own flower bouquet – a perfect Diwali gift! 

Led Candles

The other name for Diwali is ‘Festival of Lights.’ Needless to say that all homes are decked up in glimmering diyas, candles and lanterns. Whilst traditional diyas are the norm, LED candles also make for ideal Diwali gifts given the many features that make them stand apart from traditional candles! Its longevity and no flames make it as good as the traditional candles, but better! Moreover, they are not only kid-friendly but are also long-lasting – making for a unique Diwali gift indeed! 

Candle Holders and Tea Light Holders

Given the obvious implications of the festive season, candle holders and tea light holders are an obvious choice for Diwali gifts. Each home, in every state, city, and town will be ornamented with diyas, candles and beautiful lanterns. And the ideal Diwali gift that complements it all would be candle and tea light holders! There are loads of varieties of candle holders, ranging from simple brass ones to ones with intricate handpainted patterns. What’s more? You can customize these as per the liking of your loved ones! 

Fragrant Room Diffuser Sets

Room Diffuser sets make for the ideal Diwali gifts. Given Diwali’s obsession with fragrances and aromas, it only is justified that you add room diffuser sets to the long list of Diwali gift ideas. Everyone loves a fragrant room and home. Your families, relatives and friends are all going to be elated to have a home that not only looks amazing, but smells great too! Moreover, the plus side of room diffusers is the sheer amount of customisations you can indulge in, according to the tastes and preferences of the receiver. 

Premium Diwali Gift Hampers

Instead of sticking to only one gift or present, why not make a personalised premium Diwali gift hamper? You can customize this, with a variety of knick-knacks in accordance with the tastes of your loved ones. Be it an aromatic candle, perfume, healthy snacks or even mouth-watering sweets, you decide what to include and what not to include.
