Luxe gifting is the call of the hour as Diwali looms. It’s not every day that we buy our close friends and family gifts, so when we do, why not pull out all the stops? Here’s a handy guide to luxurious gifts for the festival of lights.
Manish Malhotra x Marriott Bonvoy Diwali Hamper
Embellished with gold porcelain, the hamper exemplifies designer Manish Malhotra’s luxury design philosophy. The custom-made hampers are a mix of traditional and contemporary picks including a selection of pralines, exotic Indian sweets, assorted nuts, and signature JW Marriott desserts, along with wine, Champagne and designer diyas. Call +91 33 6633 0000 or +91 90070 62262 to book.
Staycation at The Glenburn Penthouse
A staycation at The Glenburn Penthouse allows you the luxury of a getaway while still being amidst the festivities. Located atop Kanak Towers on Russell Street, The Glenburn Penthouse offers one of the best skyline-friendly views, so you’re likely to see the city’s best fireworks! The Penthouse has nine suites — including four Grand Bengal suites — all done up in elegant interiors, a host of curated artworks and a stunning Hindustan wallpaper that was rolled in from Paris. Pick your favourite spot in the property here.
A bottle of Champagne
Champagne is a great gift, especially if you’re attending a festive soiree. What’s readily available in Kolkata is the Moët & Chandon Brut, and GH MUMM. If you do manage to get your hands on a Dom Perignon, go for it. It is one of the world’s largest and most famous champagne brands.
Apple’s iPhone 14 Plus
Who doesn’t love an iPhone? Apple’s iPhone 14 Plus just released and many of your loved ones are waiting for an upgrade. Available in blue, purple, midnight, starlight and red, the latest drop caters to everyone’s taste. It is priced upwards of Rs 89,900. Bet no one will return this gift!
Bellagio Poker Chip Set
Diwali is incomplete without poker. A high-end poker set makes for a great gift for all poker enthusiasts. If you can get your hands on a collector’s item or a classic poker set, there is nothing like it. We recommend the luxurious Bellagio poker chip set, which has 500 poker chips, four packs of PSI Playing Cards and one black dealer button, all packed within a neat black leather carrying case. It costs Rs 13,000 on Amazon India.
