Quirky And Useable Diwali Gifting Ideas
It is almost Diwali and amongst all the celebrations and lights, we must prepare our homes for the endless arrival (read: clutter) of standard hampers, trays and boxes filled with the usual suspects – diyas, mithais and dry fruits. Let’s face it, even though we’d sometimes much rather not receive one more box of dry fruits, we’re guilty sending similar hampers, trays and boxes to our loved ones. It’s a cycle and its time we broke it. Say goodbye to standard Diwali gifts this year and swap them for these quirky, unusual and actually usable and exciting alternatives!
Cut the Calories
Skip: The tradition sugary treats and unnecessary calories (we know we can never stop at one)
Opt for: Delicious healthy and gluten-free treats from Cheat Clean.
Laugh a little
Skip: The typical designs on typical Diwali cards.
Opt for: These quirky and creative cards from 10AM, instead.
Skip: Bags and bags filled with dry fruits.
Opt for: These edgy and perfectly packaged tea hampers from TEABOX. Come on, who can have too much tea?
Because, we got to light it up.
Skip: The sparkly red-yellow-green diyas.
Opt for: Modern candle holders or pretty lotus shaped holders that you can use tea-lights with. Painless and timeless.
