Diwali is one of the most auspicious festivals of India. It is one of the most widely celebrated festivals around the world. People also perform pooja with all the Diwali pooja essentials, to ensure that they always have peace, joy and prosperity. The festival evidences the triumph of good over evil and hope over despair.
The festival of lights I celebrated by decorating houses, dressing up in favourite traditional attires, and the most loved tradition - exchanging gifts with your loved ones. As much as we love hogging mithais and chocolates, gone are the days when you could give those as a Diwali gift, especially to your friends. The sole dilemma of ‘what should I gift to my friends and close ones?’ is often remained unanswered. This year, switch it up by giving them one of a kind, environment friendly gifts. There are a lot of eco-friendly Diwali gifts available online. To make your job easier, we have listed unique, wonderful eco-friendly Diwali gift ideas for friends for every type of friend you can ever have.
