When people say, “Don’t bring gifts,” don’t believe them. Everybody likes gifts and what better time to treat friends and family to thoughtful presents than during the joyous festival of Diwali! Diwali is not just a festival of lights, it’s also a time for lighting up people’s lives with love and happiness. So, do yourself proud by selecting some memorable gifts for your loved ones. Don’t know what to get? Well, we have the perfect list of Diwali gift ideas for you. But before we dive into that, let’s take a quick look at the tradition of gifting itself.
Gifting on DiwaliThe tradition of gift-giving during Diwali has been around for generations. Even today, we exchange gifts to shower love, affection and blessings on our near and dear ones. But gifting has become a lot more complex, thanks to e-commerce platforms and social media. There’s so much to choose from (and there’s always so little time!) If you’re in this boat and don’t know what to pick, we have some creative and quirky Diwali gift ideas for you. Whether you want to gift your loved ones a hamper full of sweet treats or even an inedible but unique gift, we have you covered. Have a rocking Diwali by getting the right gifts for yourself and your loved ones!
Theobroma’s Diwali GoodiesWhen it comes to Diwali gifts, sweetmeats are always the best things to give. You can be sure the receiver of the gift will make use of your gift and enjoy it as well! But instead of the usual barfis and mithais, this Diwali get a little experimental by gifting some of our confectionaries. They are just as sweet, and we contend, even more delightful. We offer a wide range of desserts, sweets puffs, biscuits and pastries that are scrumptious and satisfying. We also offer a whole range of savoury goodies for those who do not have a sweet tooth. There’s artisanal bread, sandwiches, rolls and lots more.
The best part is that you can order all these goodies online and have them home-delivered and ready for gifting in no time! So, make your loved one’s Diwali extra special with an edible treat from Theobroma.
Box of HappinessIn case you aren’t sure what to gift your loved ones, we’ve done the guesswork for you and created Diwali gift boxes with a variety of treats in them. If you believe in the saying the more the merrier, you’ll love our Confectionary Gift Box (9/18 pieces). It contains an assortment of delectable, bite-sized confectionaries like Paan and Gulkand Laddus, a Strawberry Ganache Pot, Chocolate and Orange Roll, Badam Pak Brownie, Chocolate Walnut Fudge and lots more. Isn’t your mouth watering just reading this list? But wait. We have a lot more.
If you (or the person you’re gifting) loves all things French, opt for our Financier Gift Box. It contains classic French cakes made of beurre noisette (brown butter) and comes in mouth-watering flavours like Blueberry, Apricot and Almond, Pistachio Raspberry, Salted Caramel, Mango Passionfruit, Chocolate and Hazelnut Praline.
Delightful HampersIf you believe in living life king-size, you’ll love our Diwali hamper ideas, which include our Premium and Luxury Diwali Hampers. Our Diwali hampers are bursting with all things sweet and heavenly and include a Confectionery Gift Box, Assorted Savouries, Chocolate-coated biscuits, Eggless dense loaf, Palmiers and lots more. But if the person you’re gifting doesn’t have a sweet tooth, you can gift them our box of assorted savouries instead. This includes a mix of crunchy, delicious crackers like Bajra crackers, Nachni crackers and Sourdough Black Pepper crackers. You can also opt for our sweet braided loaf called Babka, which is made with our signature chocolate hazelnut praline spread and garnished with glazed nuts. These are limited-edition offerings, so, as they say, make hay while the sun shines!
‘Rock’ On with ChocolatesIf you want to give someone a small gift that packs a massive punch, a box of Theobroma’s almond rocks (250/500g) is the perfect choice. It’s also a great way to gift dry fruits, but with an extra bit of pizzaz. Our almond rocks are made up of crunchy toasted almonds and chunks of pure dark chocolate. The sweet and nutty flavours combine with each bite, creating magic in your mouth. The best part is that our almond rocks come packaged in an exquisite-looking box, which means that you don’t have to spend time gift-wrapping or embellishing it. Our wholesome almond rocks will surely leave a lasting impression on everyone’s mind, so don’t hesitate to show up with a box of them!
Take the Cake (Literally)Haven’t had time to shop? Send cake for Diwali to your friends and loved ones! A simple cake can save the day and ensure you don’t show up empty-handed when you visit them. You could opt for our fruit cake, a red velvet cake, a melt-in-the-mouth cheesecake or a delicious chocolate cake. Theobroma offers a wide selection of decadent cakes for the festive season; our Chocoholic, Fresh Cream Pineapple, and Theos Dutch Truffle cakes are extremely popular when it comes to Diwali gifting. If you’d prefer something smaller, we also have a wide range of pastries for you to choose from.
Scrumptious CookiesCookies taste great with milk, tea or can be enjoyed as is. This Diwali, gift your loved one this versatile snack to make their snacking more enjoyable. Among our top picks is a box of delectable butter cookies made with almond flour and vanilla. We use pure butter to make our cookies which gives them a mild caramelised flavour. They are also eggless, so these cookies are a great gift for someone who doesn’t eat eggs or prefers eggless sweets. You can also choose our chocolate-covered biscuits, which we’re offering exclusively for the Festival of Lights. Coated with pure milk and dark chocolate, these biscuits are a great gift for adults and kids alike!
Tea-time TreatsNo visit to a loved one’s house on Diwali is complete without a cup of chai and snacks to match. So, if you are going over to a loved one’s home for an evening cup of tea, what better gift to take with you than an assortment of Theobroma tea cakes?
You can choose from our wide range of tea cakes, which includes our classic Theo’s mava cake, banana cake, our dense loaf, among many others. Each one of our tea cakes are extremely yummy, while not being too sweet or overpowering. They are made with time-honoured recipes and using the finest ingredients. Slices of our tea cakes make for really for really great high tea petit fours. To make your gift more thoughtful than it already is, carry along a brew or two from Theobroma. We have a host of hot beverages like Americano, Cappuccino, Latte and our signature Theo’s Hot Chocolate. Enjoy some effortless tea time bonding with this gift package.
Brownie PointsGet brownie points for your yummy gift by gifting friends and loved ones our exquisite brownies. Our brownies are made with a unique family recipe and have a taste and texture that’s unparalleled. Some of our bestselling brownies are our Choco chip brownie, Millionaire brownie, Overload brownie among others. If you’re looking for variety (because it is the spice of life) gift our assorted brownie box. It includes 6/12 pieces of egg or eggless brownies, depending on your preference.
But if you want to pair your Theobroma Diwali eatables with something more long-lasting, you could pair your edible gift with an equally fun inedible gift like:
Party Games!Diwali calls for a lot of entertaining, but a party without games can get boring quickly. Gift your loved one’s quirky games to keep their party going. You could opt for classics like Monopoly, Scrabble, UNO, Jenga and Hangman, but you can also choose more contemporary, quirkier options like Cards vs Sanskaar, Cards Against Humanity, Desi BS, and Shasn. Then there are time-honoured favourites like Pictionary, Taboo and Twister. Mix it up to keep it fun!
Whether you wish to send cake for Diwali, a whole box of goodies or a unique home decor item, it’s the thought that counts so go ahead and send that gift! We hope our exciting list of Diwali gift ideas has made it a little easier for you to shop for this festive season. Another great tip to remember when gifting is to gift the person what they like, and not what you think they should like. Asking the person directly or indirectly what they need or what has caught their eye in the recent past is a good way to find out what you could gift them.
So have a blast this Diwali (but please keep it noise and firecracker-free). Stay safe, stay merry. Happy Diwali!
