Diwali is just around the corner and Hindu families around the world are getting ready to celebrate the biggest festival of the year. Deepawali is a great time for togetherness and is also a celebration of the good things in life – relationships, food and revelry. A big part of Diwali celebrations is the exchange of gifts between friends and relatives. Usually, people prefer giving gifts that include something sweet and decadent, which are usually ladoos, mithais or nuts and dried fruits. However, Diwali gifts have now evolved to include more mindful and thoughtful eatables, which are not just delicious but also nutritious. A number of hospitality brands have started promoting gift hampers, which are customised to the needs of a whole family as well.
