We have already talked about gifts for your friends and family members but now it is time to graduate to the most important gifts, i.e., gifts for yourself! While we definitely suggest treating yourselves to a lot of edibles this Diwali, we thought why not also look at a few things that are more long lasting than food items. Let’s zip through our curation of gift items just for you!
Mud and Moon Banaras Soap | Shop Now
Mud and Moon has launched an entire collection of plant-based soaps for Diwali retailing for Rs. 1500. It has four distinct soap bars with unique composition but we have a favourite and that is the Banaras Stripe! It has layers of beautiful rose clay, french red clay, indigo, multani mitti, turmeric, charcoal, and chocolate clay. Add to that, it is infused with essential oils of eucalyptus, cedar, pine wood, and lemongrass. Bathe with Banaras Stripe on the D-day and emit the most Indian earthy scent! Mud and Moon does not have a website yet so you will have to DM them on Instagram to place an order.
Anavila Dhanak Tunic Set | Shop Now
A yellow flowy kurta in matka silk is right out of our Diwali dreams. It belongs to Anavila’s latest collection of festive suits and sarees called Dhanak. Thankfully, the set consists of a matching top and bottom otherwise finding matching pieces to complete a pair can become a nightmare sometimes. The best part about this tunic set is that it goes well beyond the festive season and can be worn with or without layers according to the season.
Krithaa 10 Paise Cufflinks | Shop Now
Men often struggle to find something beyond regular shirts and khakis for themselves every festive season but we have found a perfectly interesting gift for all the daring men out there. It’s a pair of cufflinks from Krithaa, a homegrown jewelry brand. The 10 paise coin is made out of brass with an oxidised finish and can be easily tucked on to your full sleeves shirt for an elevated look.
Burnt Soul Ikigai Saree & Blouse | Shop Now
If you are committed to wearing sarees on festive occasions, then this one’s for you. It’s a vibrant saree in coral colour with intricate dabka work and sequins. The Ikigai blouse complements it the best for a day look and you can find it here. But if you are looking to make a glittery statement, then you can go for a shimmery blouse in silver sequins to amp up your look.

Are you a simple soul who would rather be wearing something simple and sipping a cup of tea this Diwali? Then, we have just the right thing for you. It’s a brass tea strainer worth Rs. 499 only.
