The ‘Diwali Sweet Box’: Do Something Different this Year!

The triumph of good over evil, the core symbolism of the Festival of Lights, is always celebrated with fireworks, diyas, gifting, and of course, much feasting with a generous presence of sweet dishes. The Hindi phrase ‘muh meetha karo’ literally means ‘sweeten the mouth’ and is part and parcel of all auspicious happenings in Indian festivals. The Diwali sweet box too takes centre stage in the festival and is the mandatory traditional gift. Typically, an assortment of Indian sweets is what makes up the Diwali sweet box: a range of delicious laddoos made of boondi, besan and more; kaju katli and other barfis; pedas and petha are the favourites.

Diwali Chocolate Boxes: Especially Curated & Personalised

This year, we suggest you give the Diwali sweet box a ‘delicious twist’ to surprise friends and relatives. Let your gift stand out among the mithais. Serenade your friends and relatives with a medley of the finest chocolates - chocolates that are specially curated and personalised with the giftee’s name, photo and a message from you.

Yes, that is what CadburyGifting allows you to do. You just need to pick your Diwali chocolate boxes from the Diwali gifts page on our website and follow the instructions, and your gift will be delivered in a maximum of seven days. So, get going! Time is running out. Make that list of people you need to gift and pick the Diwali chocolate boxes that match their likes.

Diwali Gift Ideas for Family

For your immediate family members, click on ‘personalised gifts’ and choose Warm Wishes Silk Bars for each, and personalise the chocolates with a photo of the giftee and yourself, his or her name and a from-the-heart message. Order the individual Diwali chocolate boxes in advance and keep them handy to surprise the family on Diwali day, or send the chocolates to their workplaces. Be it your mother, father or sibling; they are guaranteed to be bowled over by your gesture, and especially your note. (Go on, be mushy. It’s Diwali!)

Diwali Gift Ideas for Employees

This year, replace the mandatory box of mixed mithais with Diwali chocolate boxes. The Celebrations Assorted Pack is a good one to pick for employees. Another Diwali sweets box that does nicely for employees with kids is the Warm Wishes Kids Potli. If you have a relatively small staff, it would be great to personalise the gifts with their photos, names and your message. For organisations with larger groups, you may want to limit the Diwali chocolate boxes for the inner circle, but this Festival of Light, we would urge you to spread the joy, even if it means expanding your budget this once. As we say in CadburyGifting, let there be #joyinsideandout this Diwali!

Diwali hampers for your special people, your heroes

This Diwali, sit down and think of all the people who make a difference to your life, people who you admire, look up to and respect for all the good they do. For such inspirational people, your heroes, send them a special Diwali hamper. Fill up the hamper – perhaps an attractive cane basket - with a carefully curated set of gifts. Things that the giftee would cherish and enjoy: books, music, artwork… and a Diwali sweets box from Cadburygifting. Maybe the Celebrations Rich Dry Fruits Gift Hamper comes with a brass diya, an auspicious token of Diwali. You can customise the hamper with 5 chocolates from the CadburyGifting Silk or Dark chocolate range; and the Rich Dry Fruit Chocolate Pack.

Best Diwali Gift for Boyfriends or Girlfriends

Surprise him or her with a Diwali sweet box of chocolates before the festival. A gift of delicious Silk Miniatures would be great for this. Personalise it with a photo of the two of you together and a funny, romantic message. Maybe, something like this: ‘2 dozen sweet reasons I love you… enjoy the chocolates, reasons to follow :)’ You may gift him any number of things, but this sweet gift of love, a surprise, will touch his heart and make him smile, for sure. Time is running, so do this fast!
