Boundless laughter, lovable family time, infinite lights, zestful sweets, diyas and candles, colors and of course excessive gifts – these are the things that make Diwali, a nonpareil Diwali! It’s that time of the year, when we transform ourselves from the “miser souls” that we are to the most “affluent-extravagant mortals!” It’s the time to celebrate each other and for spreading joy, cheer and delight all around. (Undoubtedly, we do it lavishly and with style!)

Like me, if you wish to think out of the box of typical Diwali presents, these 5 awesome foolproof gifting ideas are meant for you –

1. Deserts and Confectionery Items 

Gone are the days when an expensive “kaju-katli dabba” did the trick! With changing times and increased awareness, people now prefer fresh, healthful alternatives. Fat-free chocolate box, gluten-free biscuit cans, low-calorie cakes, vegan pastries – the choices are limitless. Thanks to internet shopping, these are available a click away, plus the range is abundant. From being regular to being extraordinary – this is a perfect gifting idea this season.

Where To Buy –

2. Dry Fruits

Dry fruits still remain the all-time favorite gifting item, even though love for “mithai” faded over the years (and generations!) With changing times, the regular “kaju-badam-kishmish” combo, evolved into high priced, exorbitant and exotic dry fruits like – Blue berries (Rs 4000/kg), Pine nuts (Rs 4000/kg), dried Apricots (Rs 500/kg), Prunes (Rs 500/kg), Fig (Rs 450/kg) and US imported Almonds (Rs 750/kg). Perfect gift to make a long lasting impression on your Bosses! (Being nuts about nuts!)
