Diwali is one of the biggest festivals in India and is thus celebrated with a lot of enthusiasm. Diwali is also an occasion when families and friends bond over celebrations. Sweets are exchanged, greetings are shared and gifts are bought to celebrate togetherness. MetroMela helps you with personal gift ideas for this Diwali.
Sweets and more
For sweets, our obvious choices are Haldiram's and Bikanerwala. They have the best quality Indian sweets in Delhi. But if you are looking for something contemporary, then check out the Diwali gift hampers at The Old Baker in Delhi. They have whiskey or wine, pasta, nuts, chocolates, cookies etc. You can get them customized based on your requirements. If it’s a simple chocolate box that you need then your neighborhood grocery store would be of help too.
For electronic items visit the Gaffar Market in Karol Bagh. You can get to see a good variety from local and international brands, so you can select based on your budget. Since it is Diwali, many of the brands like Croma and Next have come up with special schemes and discounts too.
Silver Ganesh idols can be a good buy this Diwali. Visit the Episode stores in Delhi that have come up with a variety of silver gift items for Diwali. Art D Inox and Good Earth also have attractive kitchenware including stainless steel cutlery, tea sets, vases etc. Candles, candle-stands and lanterns are also popular picks for this festival. To buy these you can check out the Diwali exhibitions in Delhi which have a number of stalls for scented candles and lanterns. Candles with different fragrances like lemon grass, orange, vanilla etc are also available at Oxford Book Store.
Bed sheets, wall hangings, pottery, tea light holders, wine glasses, barware etc could also be good gift options. Fabindia or Good Earth have a variety of such items. Most of these stores have special schemes and discounts for Diwali and so you may get them at reasonable prices.
