The five-day-long Diwali festival is an occasion most of us look forward to, well, for several reasons! While for some these days may just be the time for catching up on much-needed relaxation; for some, it may be an opportunity for catching up with all of their social favorites. No matter what your Diwali plans are, the fact is that you just cannot avoid the socializing part. And as the norm dictates, you may have to arrange for multiple gifts to follow the societal ritual of gift-exchange. Chocolates, hampers, e-vouchers, and of course, cash always counts in- you surely have plenty of choices. But when it comes to choosing a gift for your near and dear ones, you may need to deviate from these regular gifts and put in a little more effort.

These gift ideas can brighten up the occasion further for your special ones.

Diwali Gift Ideas

1. The Eternal Silk Weave

Navy Blue Art Silk Woven Saree with Contrast Border and Pallu

Indian silk weaves are a legacy, they reflect the richness of the Indian cultural heritage. With its timeless allure; you can never go wrong with gifting a silk saree! A handloom saree made with fine silk, a Banarasi brocade drape, or an ornate art silk saree are fabulous choices for pampering your mother, daughter, wife, and all the precious ladies in your life. And while the occasion is strictly cultural, you might as well opt for vivid details and glorious metallic ostentation.

2. Dapper-wear for Men

Brown Polyester Printed Kurta Pajama

The love for gifts has no gender-bias; men too feel equally thrilled on receiving them! A classic plain or printed kurta is a safe bet if you don’t know their choice. Else you can go ahead and gift them something trendy like a designer indo-western suit. Add a wallet and a perfume bottle to make it a special hamper, and then- see him smile all day!

3. Chic & Casual Kurtis

Light Pink Poly Silk Anarkali Kurti with Foil Print

It’s a delight when you receive a gift that matches your choice! No matter how alluring the Indian saree is, not all women may cherish getting something so elaborate. Designer Kurtis or even plain ones are an option that you may like to explore, especially while buying gifts in bulk for your cousins or gang of girlies!

4. A Classic Staple

Yellow Cotton Block Printed Anarkali Palazzo Suit with Banarasi Dupatta

The rule goes as- if you don’t know what they like, then stick to basics! A semi-stitched churidar suit with evergreen details like flower vines, or a similar classic is a fail-proof gift for the occasion of Diwali. This option comes handy when you’re picking a gift for women with whom you share a formal relationship, like your in-laws, or any other connection where you wish to extend warmth without getting too personal!

These were our top picks as ideal gifts for Diwali 2019. You can augment them to keep up with the grandeur surrounding this sparkling festival.
