The exchange of presents is one of the biggest highlights of Diwali, especially for children. They anxiously await the festival of lights for this reason. While not many people will be celebrating in full zest and fervor this year, due to the coronavirus pandemic, we assure you your little ones at home will be disappointed if you do not buy a gift for them either. It does not have to be something that will drain your pocket but just a small token of love and appreciation. Below, we have compiled for you our favourite picks of budget-friendly options for your nearest and dearest. Give it a read:
Small trinkets are every girl’s favourite! Head over to a jewellery store and buy the precious women in your life – daughter, wife or mother – a gift they will always hold close to their heart. Bracelets, anklets, pendants and earrings in silver would be your best and least costly option. You can also get the acessories customized with their initials. Trust us, they’ll love you for it.
The only catch here is knowing what kind of fragrance the person you are buying it for is fond of. While some people prefer stronger scents, others are more inclined towards floral and sweet smells. Perfumes are a great gifting option for both men and women. One can never ever have enough!
- Box of chocolates
Who doesn’t love chocolate? No one! Sweets on Diwali are considered to bring in luck and end the day’s festivities on a high note. Chocolates are also a great idea because there is a plethora of options you can choose from, ranging from cheap to expensive. You can give something along with chocolates too, such as flowers for a girl or a tie and cufflinks for a male.
- Decorative items
These can also be a cute idea. Think candles, lamps, photo frames, serving trays and the list goes on and on. But make sure to pick something they would like and use. There is no point in spending money over something another person would not appreciate. Afterall, they need to use it, not you!
- Gift voucher
If you are an indecisive person and will never be able to choose a present, this one is for you! A gift voucher of a certain amount, from a salon, clothing store or electronics and gadgets shop can be a good option. But remember to make sure you inform the person receiving the present about the voucher’s expiry date.
