Good Luck Charms
Diwali is an occasion when we wish good cheer and prosperity to one and all. Then, how can we leave out our dear friends? This Diwali, present your friends with such gifts that are believed to be the harbingers of good luck and well being. To girls, you can present charm bracelets and pendent necklaces that have various auspicious religious motifs engraved on them, such as Swastik, Shree, Om, etc. Friends can also be presented with idols of deities, like Lord Ganesha and Goddess Lakshmi, along with auspicious silver coins, as they are symbols of good omen. Specially designed wind chimes for Diwali can also be found in the market; they make great Diwali presents for friends.
Candles and Diyas
The name of the festival Diwali, in itself, means 'row of diyas'. Then, what could be a more apt gift that you could give to your friends than diyas and candles? If you had assumed such gifts to be boring, it's time you sit back and think again. Today, you can find numerous permutations and combinations of diyas and candles available in the market, ranging from traditional ethnic to slick designer ones, all revealing off an absolutely stunning appearance. Aromatic and gel candles are also great gifting choices for Diwali and make wonderful decoration pieces. Besides these, you can also present ornate candle stands of different shapes and sizes to your friends that will remind them of you throughout the year.
Personalized Gift Items
Modern technology has presented us with many new options through which we can make many standardized gifting items unique by infusing our own creativity into them. Today, you can personalize a variety of items, such as T-shirts, coffee mugs, key rings, bed sheets, etc. You can get a message, picture or Diwali greeting printed on these items and give them a touch of personal emotions before gifting them to your friends. This Diwali, you can present your close friend with a coffee mug that has yours and his/her picture on it; this will definitely be a memorable Diwali present for him/her.
Rather than gifting your dear friends with traditional mawa and khoya sweets, add a twist to the flavor of this Diwali, by presenting them with delightful and finger-licious chocolate hampers. These beautifully decorated hampers consist of an assortment of branded chocolates, both domestic as well as international. Choose a hamper based on your friend's taste and liking. If you plan to spare no expense to impress your friends, then you can also gift them premium quality handmade exotic boutique chocolates. There is no dearth of chocolate flavors available in the market, such as unsweetened chocolate, bittersweet chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate, white chocolate, dark chocolate, etc. So, have a ball experimenting with these delicious gifting ideas.
CDs and DVDs
Well, who better than you can know your friend's taste in music, movies and computer games? Make this Diwali extraordinary for them by gifting them with self-made hampers, which are a collection of their favorite music CDs, DVDs, movies, or computer games. Take a wicker basket, place your compilation of CDs in it, and gift wrap it with satin or tissue cloth to give it an ethnic festive look. Your friends will certainly appreciate your effort and shall always remember these fond memories of you while enjoying your thoughtful gift.
