Diwali is known as the festival of light and is famous for the firework displays that mark this occasion. There is a whole range of ideas from traditional gifts to eco-friendly options to choose.
1. Statues of gods and goddesses
Diwali is a time for worshipping a lot of gods and goddesses. Some people seek the blessings of the generous Lord Ganesha, Goddess Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth, brings prosperity to her devotees.
2. Handmade candles
If you want to add a personal touch to your Diwali gifts, you could buy some candle wax and fragrance oils at the store and make your own candles
3. Ethnic wear and jewellery
There is no better occasion than a religious festival to flaunt your ethnic side. This could be a suitable time to provide friends/family with an opportunity to expand their wardrobe.
4. Solar lawn lights
Almost all people deck up their houses during this time of the year with lamps and fairy lights. This year, you could give them a set of LED lights that are powered on solar energy.
5. Potted house plants
Another way to embrace green Diwali is to make an attempt to reduce the air pollution that is caused by the burning of firecrackers during this festival. There are a number of house plants to pick from.
6. Watches and sunglasses
Accessories make the best gift items because they suit everyone, regardless of gender or size. Watches and sunglasses are also available in a variety of price range.
