It’s that time of the year when everyone’s busy picking and choosing the best Diwali gifts to present to the fam, BFFs, and colleagues. While the nuts and dry fruits hampers are a staple (we got about six of those), this year we are telling you and ourselves – no more nuts! Instead, we present to you a list of creative (and quirky, if we must) gifts that make the perfect Diwali gift hampers. The best part about these hampers is that they can be part of a larger Diwali gift hamper as well. See, we are cool that way.

There's always room for light and colour during the festive season, and Kolour Theory has got both covered with their hamper. They've got adorable dessert themed handmade and hand poured candles, as well as a pretty stand for the candles.

A gifting brand through and through, you're sure to get a festive gift set that's appropriate as it is useful and tasteful too. Their hampers include a mix of trays, chocolates, coasters, candles and diyas across budgets. We specifically loved their trays and chocolate hampers, starting from INR 1,300 as these are not too extravagant and yet, make a statement. Prints of peacocks, banyan trees and mandala-cum-rangoli artowrk on the trays, coasters, and candles are what make these gift hampers, perfect presents. Read more about Footprints Forever here.
