It’s the holiday of lights, sweets, new outfits, and, of course, presents!!! I can’t help myself; when it comes to Diwali gifts, I’m as thrilled as a child, and everyone knows it! Birthday presents are not the same as Diwali gifts. They have a more festive feel to them, which birthday gifts simply cannot equal! It’s a true instance of ‘the more the merrier’ when everyone is gifting each other all around! However, buying gifts for everyone may be costly, not to mention harmful to the environment. It can also be tedious, particularly when you receive identical sets of the same item from different persons. Why be ordinary when you can be unique with simple Diwali presents that you can make yourself? Yes, we’re talking about going handmade, and we’ve compiled a list of some of the most simple ideas that are also functional and don’t require a lot of time or money to create. Yes, the kids can include these in their Diwali activities, especially if you’re throwing a special Diwali party for them! You may also buy Diwali gifts online at a low cost to make your Diwali even more spectacular.

Dry Fruit Crackers for Diwali:
Diwali is synonymous with crackers, but The Craftables’ dry fruit crackers are the safe type! These multicoloured crackers are simple to make with a short trip to the craft store. You could fill them with candies or sweets, but I think you’ll agree that dried fruits and nuts are healthier!
On Diwali, everyone wants Rangoli powder, so give them a handmade version that will make everyone happy, including the environment. This Fun Littles Rangoli powder recipe is simple to create and can be coloured with vegetarian food colours to achieve the appropriate tones.
String Lights Made of Paper Cubes:

Tealight Holder with Pistachios:

Diyas that are environmentally friendly:
No Diwali celebration is complete without the lighting of a few (or many) earthenware or clay diyas. We’ve got a recipe for making diyas with chapathi dough!
