A big part of celebrating the festival of lights is gifting. And besides the oh-so-popular box of mithai gifts, there are so many thoughtful gestures you can make to your family and friends. Be it an aromatic fragrance or an everyday handbag, here is our round-up of amazing Diwali gift ideas you can find at Lifestyle Stores…
We all know that one person who is a watch connoisseur. The one who always matches his or her watch to their outfit, and has a wide selection they are always talking about. So, this Diwali, why not add to their collection with one of the striking watch designs available at Lifestyle Stores?
For women, the ultra-luxurious gold watch from Guess embellished with studs around the watch face and strap is an eye-popping design any fashion diva would love in her collection. The fitness freak would appreciate Fastrack’s smartwatch more, made with all the parameters she will need to track her workouts.
An all-time favourite in men’s watches has been Casio’s G-Shock range. Anything from this collection would please him – this stone grey analog watch will let him pair it with most of his clothing. And for the man who loves minimalist fashion, Guess’ black analog watch with a stainless steel strap is a sleek option.
There are many worthy reasons why fragrances make a good gift. Not only are they versatile, but they are also universal. Most people use some form of a fragrance, be it perfume or a deodorant. If you’re looking to gift something personal, fragrances are perfect because they are usually worn every day, making them a reminder of you with every spray.
Choose from many big brands in fragrances like Davidoff and United Colors of Benetton. For women who like floral and aquatic notes, Davidoff’s Cool Water Reborn perfume is a memorable gift, as is Purple from United Colors of Benetton with a delicious mix of fruity and floral aromas.
Mont Blanc and Lacoste have equally amazing Diwali gift ideas for men. Presence from Mont Blanc has a classic masculine scent brought by spicy and woody ingredients – ideal for those who like a distinct fragrance. Lacoste’s Eau Fraiche, on the other hand, has a more citrusy finish.
Another popular category for luxury Diwali gifts ideas is sunglasses. They make special gifts since they can be used throughout the year, and for those who like a bit of jewellery, sunglasses are a fashionable alternative.
Classics for men include IDEE’s square sunglasses in grey and black. The retro shape is always stylish and can be paired with formals and casuals alike. Forca’s square sunglasses with a more distinct black frame is another option that will be well-received.
For women, tortoiseshell patterns are a heavy favourite that can be seen in these cat-eye sunglasses from Tommy Hilfiger. Bebe’s butterfly sunglasses with metallic gold rims are a stunner too!
Have you thought about what to gift someone for Diwali? Some of the best gifts are not just memorable; they are practical too. So why not get your close ones a handbag or wallet? If it’s a big bag, you can create Diwali gift hampers by throwing a few small things into the bag.
Women will cherish both these bags from Elle and Code. They are versatile and can be used on many different occasions. Elle’s handbag in beige comes in a snakeskin texture and a very prominent logo design, while the ruched handle and tassels are the main features of the green handbag from Code.
For a man who spends his time travelling, the blue hiking backpack from Wildcraft is one he will frequently use, while the brown single-fold wallet from Tommy Hilfiger can be his day-to-day companion.
Although it can be a bit tricky to buy someone a pair of shoes as a gift, if they’re close enough to you and you know their shoe size, they can be a caring gift.
Puma’s brightly colour-blocked lace-up shoes would do nicely for an active woman. The brown gladiator sandals from Allen Solly would be preferred by someone more laid back.
The brown slip-on casual shoes from Forca and the white striped lace-up shoes from Lee Cooper are ideal for any man.
