It’s that time of the year again when you can flaunt your largeheartedness to the hilt. Yes, Diwali is almost upon us and the gifting frenzy is at its peak. Sweets of course rule the roost but, sweets are also a health hazard and most health-conscious people are happier staying away from them. With the Supreme Court banning sale of crackers in Delhi, the tone and tenor of a healthy Diwali has been set early this year.
Here we have tried to share some healthy Diwali gifting ideas for your loved ones that will light up their lives in the months to come.
This year ditch the sweets loaded with sugar and calories and go for dry fruits and nuts. Nuts are a favorite in the Diwali gifting tradition and therefore, very easily available in the markets.
Fresh Fruits Basket
Another traditional favorite are fresh fruits. Get your local fruit vendor to load up a basket full of the season’s best and wrap it up in see-through colorful wrappers. Fruits are loaded with vitamins and antioxidant that will make the recipient love you for your thoughtful gesture.
Healthy Home Appliances
Gift a juicer or a hand blender to your loved ones so that they can make and drink fresh fruit juices right before they start their busy day. Another favorite is air fryer that cuts down intake of calories by notches. Samosas are now so much more healthy!
Full Body Health Check-up
We know that it is a bit of a bore but, if someone in your family needs a full body check-up done but, has been dilly-dallying for a long time, this is your chance to make them change their mind. Throw in the fact that you will accompany them and you would have made someone feel really cared for.
If you have been persuading your friend or spouse to accompany you to the gym for a while, then, go for it. It will surprise them and make them feel special. Plus, you will have company everyday at the gym.
If you think that the women in your family have been working extra hard trying to make Diwali special for you all, then think no more. Get them full spa sessions that they can redeem right before the festival. They will love you for this one.
If you have retired members in your family who feel restless and crave social interactions, you should think no more. Buy them a membership to a nearby club where they can meet like-minded people, use the gym facilities, read at the library or take the family out for cozy dinners. They’ll really bless you for being so thoughtful.
Wishing you and your loved ones a very happy and healthy Diwali!
