Love, light and prosperity — that’s what Diwali is all about. With lots of house parties and pujas to attend with friends and family this festive season, picking out the perfect gift for your loved ones can seem like quite the task.

Here’s a handy list of goodies to give your near and dear for the festivities, and there’s something for everyone.


Plants and planters

These antique-style, quintessentially Indian design brass planters have a nostalgic traditional touch, that can be a chic addition to any home. Fashioned to look like brass cups, these planters have the perfect festive touch without being over the top. Gift them as they are, or plant a little sapling in there for your plant parent friends and family.

Luxury Jewellery

When it comes to Diwali gifts, luxe is often the way to go, especially for those who you know closely. BlueStone’s Erratic Two-Way Ring is versatile and fashionable. Available in rose and yellow gold finish in 14 carat and 18 carat, the diamond-studded finger ring can be worn two-ways by flipping the disc incorporated into the design.

Pujan Samagri Box

Phool’s hamper for the festive season is an ideal gift for friends and family across many age groups. The Pujan Samagri Box includes all the things you might need to have a puja at home, from ceramic diyas to incense sticks, camphor to Lakshmi and Ganesha idols. Plus, they’re an eco-conscious brand making this a thoughtful gift for Diwali, and it comes in a beautifully illustrated box.

All-in-One Diwali Gift Hamper

Sweets and food-goodies make for the best gifts for festivals.

It has Indian Original Masala Chai by Vahdam, Gluten-Free Indian Cookies by Bombay Sweet Shop, Brass Diyas by P-Tal, Aloe Vera Toning Mist by Juicy Chemistry and Assorted Red Velvet and Cookies and Cream by Nova Nova. Festive goodies to self-care, this box has it all.

Gifts get even better when they’re not only thoughtful but also great for the environment. For friends and family who appreciate doing their bit for the earth and are constantly on the move, this hamper from Brown Living India is perfect. It has a luggage tag, journal, cutlery with a pouch you can carry it in and more. This gift box is eco-friendly and totally plastic-free too.
