10 Diwali Gifting Ideas that your loved ones would love
- Personalized Food Hampers
Food hampers are ultimate happiness. You could customize the hamper or basket as per the person’s choice. Make a special coffee hamper with different kinds of coffee, cookies, chocolates and a mug.
For your gym freak friend, make a basket with green tea, granola bars, gluten free cookies, raw pressed juices. It is all about picking the right items.
- Gift Cards
Nothing beats the happiness of choosing your own gift. Gift cards give the person this freedom. You can get gift cards for a particular brand like Shoppers’ Stop, The Body Shop or give gift cards for online shopping.
If you and your best friend or favorite cousin are not going to be together for Diwali, you can send an email gift card and spread the joy.

- Beauty Hampers
Beauty hampers make the perfect Diwali gift. A lot of leading beauty brands have their own gift packs so you can easily pick one up. Or you can customize the products as per the person’s liking.
Add bath and body care products, hand made soaps, organic scrubs, face masks, essential oils…so many things to choose from.
- Dry Fruits
Passé enough? Well, we meant giving dry fruits with a twist. The twist is DIY ideas. A beautifully decorated box, a handmade Diwali card to go along, and cute DIY packaging ideas would make a huge difference.
Take the love of reading to a new level with Kindle. It makes an ideal gift for your beloved family member or bestie.
And just in case the person already has a kindle, you can consider gifting a pretty kindle cover. It’ll be such a useful gift.
- Diwali Goodies
What can be better than Diwali goodies at Diwali. You could make a gift set of hand painted diyas, Diwali lanterns, and bird cage with fairy lights.
Buy diyas and paint them yourself. Or you could also buy diyas from NGOs and help them have a happier Diwali.
Electronics are a good gifting choice. You could choose an air fryer for your health conscious friend, hair styling tools for your fashionista sister or a hand blender for your foodie uncle. Electronic gifts like a hand held massager or an electric blanket would be ideal for your grandparents.
And the best part is that there are various Diwali sales during the season, so you can pick up the product at a steal deal as well.
- Crystal Items
Crystal items are considered to be auspicious gifts during Diwali. But instead of giving those boring items, think out of the box. Fill the vase with aroma potpourri or flowers, and the bowls can be filled with dry fruits or handmade chocolates. You can also consider gifting a vintage crystal tea set or a dinner set.
- Wine Bottle
A bottle of wine is one choice that always helps. Classy and chic, give a new turn to the festive vibe with an exquisite bottle of wine, or a wine hamper.
Add a personalized Diwali message, and use creative DIY methods to wrap it and see how stunning the simple bottle would turn out to be. You can give it with a bunch of flowers or chocolates and it’ll always be a hit.
- Spa Appointment
After all the running around and festive madness, it’ll be great to relax and rejuvenate. A spa appointment would be an ideal way to pamper your loved ones. You could also think of a couple’s spa appointment or even a hair spa session, depending upon the person’s likes and preferences.
Unusual yet useful, a spa session would be that much needed break. So gift it to your parents, or newly-wed friends and let them enjoy.
Hope these Diwali gifting ideas help put an end to those boring and cliché gifts. Have a great festive time…
