Gifts which are thoughtful, unique while also being useful are a tough ask. As you browse this gift list, names of your friends and family members will start popping up in your head. Go ahead, indulge them! 🙂
1. Essential Oils Combo Pack
The two gift packs below are perfect for adding a touch of luxury to anyone’s skin and hair care routines. The combo oils complement each other and can be used right out of the box!!
Essential oils are packed with powerful health benefits and can help in balancing hormones, curing skin and hair problems to strengthening immune system and everything in between. These highly concentrated oils are very volatile and need carrier oils (like castor oil) to transfer them effectively to your skin.
This ‘Castor Oil and Tea Tree Essential Oil’ set is perfect for blemish free, acne resistant skin care routine.
‘Castor Oil and Rosemary Essential Oil‘: are a powerful combination for ensuring strong and long hair. Massage into hair after diluting the Castor oil in the right quantity with Rosemary Essential Oil.
2. Aromatic Diffusers
Diffusers are a great way to introduce beautiful and natural fragrance into any home. There are various types and you can find one which will suit your budget.
To experience the medicinal effects of the essential oils, they should be diffused with ultrasound instead of heat. The ceramic type diffusers use heat and are the cheapest. They are great if you want to use the oils only for fragrance.
Although essential oils are not cheap, and an ultrasonic diffuser makes sure that their medicinal benefits are preserved after diffusion. they can become expensive but the basic ones start from Rs 1.7k or so.
Portable Ultrasonic Diffuser: (operable by USB for use at your desk or even in the car!)
3. Puja Diyas and Incense Sticks Set
These Ready To Use Cow Ghee Diyas are the most adorable and useful thing I have seen in the markets this year! Made of pure desi cow ghee, they smell heavenly even when inside the box. They come with a small stainless steel diya holder in this gift version on Amazon:
Gift them along with these all natural Ayurvedic incense sticks. This is a perfect gift for your parents or your religious friends.
Patchouli Ayurvedic Incense Sticks by Omved. According to the company their Ayurvedic incense “do not contain synthetic fragrances, glue, toxic fillers or burners, charcoal or dung…thus creating non-toxic incense sticks, suitable for indoor use.”
4. Nuts and Berry Mix
Dry fruits and nuts are extremely popular for gifting around Diwali season. This gourmet set has delicious walnuts, dried cranberry, pumpkin seeds and a nuts and berry mixture. Your health conscious friends would adore you for this unique curation by Nutty Gritties.
5. Energy /Protein Bars
These protein bars are far more convenient than protein shakes – gift them to your gym friends and health buddies. They are packed with 20g of protein, 10g of fibre and 300mg of omega3 fats – all in one bar! If that wasn’t enough, these Protein Bars from YogaBars stand out for their use of only natural ingredients and no emulsifiers, artificial sweetners, stabilisers, to ruin the healthy eating experience. In short, their ingredient list is clean whole foods – a rarity nowadays.
Your health conscious friends and family would love to have them stocked in their offices to get over the sweets after the festivities are over!
