DIWALI 2018 GIFT GUIDE
The A-to-Z of festive gifting
With Diwali right ’round the corner, it’s time to check those gifts off your shopping lists our lovelies. We’ve found you gifts perfect for everyone from your mum to your boss, your soon-to-be fiancee and your employees.
FOR THE WIFEY
The wifey’s always all about the fam, and she’ll always love the thought behind a gift more than anything else, and a chic collection of photo frames with pictures of the kids, you, her and the doggos in it is something she’ll be touched by even months down the line.
Or, a lamp to set the mood on days you surprise her with a date night at home, would make her pretty darn happy too.
It usually doesn’t take too much to get the kids excited ’bout anything new, so as long as you know their lil preferences (like your girl likes brightly-coloured stuff, and your son is big on cars, or vice-versa). A bright pretty rug and a decal with cars should pretty much help bowl ‘em over, and you can even set it up in advance, so they can be totally taken aback in a good way when they chance upon it.
We’ve all been there, back when we were getting our ‘starter’ pads ‘started’ ya know? And, there’s no better housewarming gift (or on any other occasion for the first year at least) that would be more appreciated than something that would fit right in in his or her new home.
If Seth Rogen’s ‘Bad Neighbours’ taught us anything, it’s that bad neighbours can totally wreck the experience of living even in the most beautiful home. And there’s no better way to keep the peace than to let them know you appreciate ‘em every once in a while.
Diwali’s all about bringing home Ganesha (good luck) & Lakshmi (prosperity), and we are willing to bet your employees will like a fanc-ey flower vase and a Ganesha statuette to go with over an impersonal box of sweets or a set of cheap glass glasses (we’ve all been at the receiving end of such gifts, no?).
