Think out of the (sweet) box this Diwali

Diwali is round-the corner and when we say celebration we mean “what sweet to eat”. The word “mithai” can be coined as the synonym of Diwali as it is the festival to feast on sweets. Loads of greasy sweets come in the form of gifts from family and friends and if you are a health fanatic, you are deemed to be unpopular. But the fact is that the culture of sweet-eating that peaks at this time can help trigger long-term health problems, with diabetes to start with. The biggest challenge is counting the calories which we manage to gain during this festival. Does this mean that we should stop the traditional gifting culture during Diwali? Not really…….
We can be a little untraditional and gift everyone some healthy and creative gifts which are always appreciated.

Glance through these five-exciting ways of gifting health and happiness to your family and friends for this Diwali. -

Fruit basket for a junk gourmand – the healthiest gift you can give - Fill the basket with some exotic fruits like prunes, peaches, apricots, strawberries, oranges. Fruits are excellent source of vitamin C, potassium and fibre. All departmental stores like Spencers, Natures Basket, or Godrej Fresh hold exotic fruit baskets. Gift fruit baskets and keep the loved ones off the junk foods.
Exotic herbs for hale and hearties – Explore the world of herbs in the gourmet food shop and make a gift hamper with bottles of herbs, spices, bottle of olive oil, bottle of Dijon mustard, bottle of balsamic vinegar and some seasonings. This will be the most welcoming gift, as these are not only healthy but are also non-perishable and friends and family can enjoy them for months at length.
Basket of Tea for busy bees – Gifting tea is like bestowing an opportunity for your loved ones to stop, relax and rejuvenate. What else can be the best if not for a basket full of herbal tea, green tea, organic tea, tulsi tea and other flavoured tea? Create your own tea hamper or order it online and you will never miss that illumined smile of your loved ones.
Spa vouchers for the knackers - Diwali is one of the festivals where everyone wants to look to their best. The kind of busy schedules most of us are in these days, a relaxing spa treatment or a massage will be the most craved one for many. A spa voucher of the nearest spa centre will be the ideal and unique diwali gift. Gift them an exclusive spa voucher and see for yourself the best wishes pouring for you from your loved ones.
Go Green & be eco friendly – Gifting potted plants in another unique way of diwali gifting. Now a days most of us love to have indoor plants and small potted plants to add greenery to our home décor. Moreover, when we embellish interior spaces with houseplants, we let plants to interact with our body, mind and home in many ways that enhance the quality of life. Just walk into the nearest plant nursery and pick out few useful and unique potted plants. Even Ferns and Petals are also offering a special range of potted plants for this diwali. So gift your loved ones with potted plants and Go Green this diwali.
“May no gift be too small to give, nor too simple to receive, which is wrapped in thoughtfulness and tied with loads of love” says L O Baird. It is rightly said that the size of the gift does not matter. It is the thought that matters and any gift which is thoughtful, sensitive, and effective is the most unique and useful gift.


Health and Happiness are the best gifts of all….
