When fall hits, South Asians worldwide start gearing up for Diwali, also known as the Festival of Lights. The five-day festival is over 2,500 years old and is celebrated by Hindus, Sikhs, Jains, and Buddhists. This year Diwali will take place on October 24—the holiday generally falls between October and November, depending on the lunar calendar—and includes an abundance of food and sweets, dancing, and family gatherings to honor the triumph of good over evil and light over darkness.
A big part of the holiday involves giving loved ones gifts to celebrate togetherness. Gifting is also a way for elders to give the younger generation their blessings, which is where we come in. Whether you’ve been celebrating the holiday all your life or caught only a glimpse of what Diwali can be in that one episode of The Office (the one in which Michael Scott sings and dances to support his colleague Kelly Kapoor at the company party), we curated a list of thoughtful Diwali gift ideas, many of which are owned by South Asian businesses, in this one-stop gift guide.
Scroll down for the best Diwali gifts that anyone—from your dear nani to your fiancé—will love. (Psst: If you find yourself still short on Diwali gift ideas, money is a totally fine and, of course, welcome gift.)
