Diwali: This is India’s biggest festival for sure. In each and every state this festival is celebrated under various names and rituals. But the underlying factor remains the same and that is lighting up diyas, lights, and candles to ward off all the negativity from life and usher in lights of hope and positivity. For this festival, you can get some jewelry and garments for the ladies of your family. You can think of antique candle holder for a distant relative and obviously lots of firecrackers and chocolates for the kids.
New Year: New Year means a new beginning and thus each one of us shed off the past aches and pains and start the year with new spirit and excitement.

Raksha Bandhan: This festival is solely dedicated to brothers and sisters. There are numerous websites where you can do the rakhi online shopping in India for the basic things like rakhi threads, puja thali, sweets, and dry fruits which are like the customary gifts on this season. Apart from that, you can pick up the latest designer gown and handbag for your darling sister. You can also enroll her to a dance class if she has a hobby of dancing. For your brother, you can select the personalized t-shirt along with a ticket to his favorite destination. A new shaving kit and bathing kit is another interesting gifts for him.
Holi: The world gets mesmerized with the way we Indians celebrate Holi. We almost drag friends and loved ones out of their house and smear colors on them. Gulaal along with some sweets, dry fruits, and an idol of Lord Krishna and Radha would be a nice gift idea to be presented to all your relatives and guests. Apart from that you can call up friends and host a lavish dinner party where bhang has to play an important role – right?
Eid: Like all other famous festivals, this one also believes in spreading love and light. We pray to the almighty to fill up our mind with light of truth and wisdom. As a special gift for your loved ones on this occasion, you can choose a lampshade with “Allah” written over it. You can a personalized cushion with something like, “Peace begins with smile! Wipe all your worries with a smile on this Eid”.
