Diwali, the festival of lights, is the time for all things new – clothes, gadgets, relationships and beginnings. Gifting is a major part of the celebrations, and this is what makes it a time when everyone secretly wishes to receive presents.

Giving and receiving is sure to light up a smile across everyone’s faces. However, when you have a big khaandaan plus several friends, quite a bit of planning is involved. Planning for a gift need not always be a time consuming job, a number of options can easily leave you spoilt for choice. While dessert hampers and chocolates are a gift idea that never gets old, you also can’t go wrong with giving gift cards and vouchers!

For the home:

Cell phones, bed sheets, cutlery or even apparel can make one’s day or even a year! At HyperCITY, a silver bowl set with spoon can cost Rs 799. Customised gift hampers which could include ingredients from an international cuisine for the one who enjoys cooking, is a great option. The online portal LimeRoad also has décor to pep up your home. For example, a brown wooden hand carved t-light could cost Rs 749; or a crystal embellished sculpted gold ceramic vase could cost Rs 990.

Jewellery:

Diamonds are a woman’s best friend, they say. While it need not be the case always, it’s good to ensure you get the best for your loved one. Forevermark diamonds, a brand found in many stores is known for its elegance. With designs inspired by the traditional Indian diya, the collection can easily excite anyone. Diamond earrings or a choker can be a perfect adornment with a flowy Anarkali or a chiffon sari.

Traditional jewellery tends to be heavy and chunky, and can be swapped with light-weight versions that include a variety of stones to choose from on the website ilovediamonds.com. Rubies, emeralds, blue topaz and a variety of rare gem stones can add a special sparkle.

Personalised messages:

If nothing else, friends and family always enjoy hearing an affectionate word which affirms your bond. A personalised message can be sent on the N-gage app, which allows you to send cards, doodles and stickers to which your own message can be added in order to make it personal.

A lot of products can be purchased via online websites that have much to offer in terms of sales and discounts. One such is the UC Browser from UCWeb which tied up with Amazon.in. The 14-day ‘Diwali Shopping Carnival’ will be open to users of UC Browser – the lucky ones will win discount coupons, gift cards and vouchers. A coupon winner can avail an additional 3-5% discount over the offer on Amazon. The gift card and vouchers can be used on purchases from Amazon.in. The offer will be on from November 2 to 15.

Edibles:

Whether chocolates for the chocoholics, or dry fruits for the health conscious, treats such as these have a special place in all of our hearts. Chocolate Gift Boxes such as LuvIt chocolates available in different sizes can even be gift wrapped. Chocolate praline boxes, hand-crafted chocolates filled with whole nuts, etc. or a simple box of assorted dry fruits.
