Diwali is ’round the corner and that means two things – getting the gifting in order and redoing your house. What if you could combine both? While shopping for gifts, also come across decor ideas that could give your home a much-needed fresh lease of life? So we put together a Diwali gift guide that is sure to also help you do up your home. Take your pick from a range of scented candles, bed linens, photo frames and statement tableware pieces.
A perfect set of tapas plate is evergreen. These faded Tuscan stoneware pieces feature colourful toucans, Chinese bellflowers, and lush foliage. The best part is that they work well for all occasions.
Festive season calls for going back to your roots, and what better way than gifting these hand-painted set of metal plates and platters. Baarique has a vast variety of designs and tableware to choose from, and prices vary according to both.
Reed diffusers not only make for fragrant gifts but also create a sense of calm when placed in one’s living space. The reeds are partially immersed in a bottle of fragrant oil, and this leads to the fragrance rising up the reeds and diffusing in the space. Great for good sleep and creating an inviting ambiance, our favourite is the lavender scent that exudes a sense of warmth and is perfect for the festive season.
Candles make for an easy, useful Diwali gift. Just in case you want to veer away from earthen diyas, these cool Intiki ones made in brass are a good option.

Whether you are a minimalist or a maximalist, bed linens make for a perfect gift for Diwali. We suggest veering away from lighter hues, and instead embracing dark, decadent tones of greys, blacks, and blues with Address Home’s new collection Noche. Bed spreads in viscose velvet, faux silk, and cushions featuring techniques of surface ornamentation exude a feeling of luxury and warmth.
Everyone can do with a bit of greenery around them. While the standard pots set in a corner is a done to death idea, add a bit of character to your living space with these white hanging planters.
