Diwali is on 27th October 2019 and that means the time of the year has arrived when you have to buckle up and first of all make lists. A list of things you need to renovate or redecorate your house, things you need to cook the delicious meals, people you need to gift, and what to gift. This is also the time of the year when you will see flashes of sales going on in various shops to lure you. But don’t lose your track and stick to your list only and that way you will save much.
This festival of lights is all about a celebration of the victory of good over evil. Diwali is also about removing all sorts of darkness from life and filling it up with hope and positivity. The exhilarating celebration includes homework and the homework is nothing but shopping. Your home needs to dazzle up to welcome the blessings of Lakshmi Devi and other guests. The gifts need to be sorted because they are the token of your love, respect, and gratitude.
So, here is a list of things that you can shop for and impress your friends and family members easily.
Buy it for yourself and also for others because this is the most relevant Diwali gift that resonates with the spirit of this bright festival. You will come across varieties of designer diyas available in sets. Some are designed like diyas but have candle wax in them and they are easier to lit up as you don’t need to put oil and cotton in them. But you can choose the beautifully colored clay diyas for those who prefer traditional things.
For your darling wife or daughter, you can opt for a designer label dress. Manish Malhotra or Sabyasachi Mukherjee are all-time favorites in the list of the ladies. And anything created by them would make your wife or daughter or mom or girlfriend happy.
There is nothing better than personalized gifts when you have to show your reverence and gratefulness towards someone. You can order for personalized mugs, LED cushions, photo frames, chopping boards, lamps, etc. for your parents. In fact, you can settle for one type of personalized gift for everyone in your family. All you need to do is search the best photographs of your family members and select a product type to get that perfect Diwali gift.
A Diwali gift for your wife or girlfriend must be special. Buying gold and silver is considered auspicious during Dhanteras – the 1st day of Diwali. So, walk into a jewelry showroom and take advantage of their deals or offers and buy jewelry for your wife, girlfriend, sister, or daughter.
For your mom or aunt or a friend who loves to cook, you can settle for kitchen essentials. During Diwali, most of the online portals run lucrative sales where you can shop for those items you are looking for. A set of induction-friendly containers, colorful pressure cooker, cool storage boxes, a gorgeous set of tea port & cups with saucers, etc. There are various items to impress your loved ones.
Home Décor Items
There are so many things that fall under home décor that you will be flooded with choices. So, it’s better to jot down the likes and dislikes of your friends or relatives before buying a home décor item for them. For example, someone who loves to read books would appreciate a funky bookend. Someone who is a believer in Feng Shui would love a lucky turtle or wind chime. Therefore, look out for fancy lamps, bright curtains, decorative door soans, or quirky posters and shop the best ones for Diwali.
Due to the incessant use of firecrackers during Diwali, the level of pollution goes up, especially in the metro cities. So, plants would be a great gift cherished by your family and friends. On any weekend or while returning from work, go to a nursery and pick up some plants that are easy to care for and are fuss-free. Given the shortage of space in all the modern houses, indoor plants or bonsai or terrariums would be a great choice. They will break the monotony of the household objects and furniture apart from boosting oxygen supply.
This is a thing that can be given to anyone and everyone would love it. Those who face a lack of time to go out and shop or to look online and shop can simply send the mouth-watering boxes of chocolates. The branded ones or the exotic ones – both will work wonders. Those chocolates in the shape of a diya or “HAPPY DIWALI” written on them are also gaining popularity. So, choose the chocolates wisely and surprise your best buddies or relatives.
We hope these shopping ideas would help you a lot to surprise your friends and family this Diwali. So, hurry up and hit the stores to avoid the last-moment rush.
