Curated by Bani Chawla & Suchita S.

October always brings with it loads to look forward to – Diwali, Christmas, New Year, Weddings, and just plain gorgeous weather! Your social calendar is probably filling fast, starting with Diwali dos. Diwali has been synonymous with dry fruit and mithai boxes, and we all know we collect what we receive, only to hand it over to the next person {from a different social circle of course} who invites us over. This season, LBBD got creative and has curated a list of lovely home decor gifting options – stuff that doesn’t put a giant dent in your pocket, and stuff that the recipient can use and will hold onto. From designer tins for the kitchen, or even the dining table, to wall art and coffee table books – there’s something for everyone.
