9 Unique Diwali Gifting Ideas

Who doesn’t love receiving thoughtful presents during Diwali? We all admire that relative who manages to pick the perfect gifts for everyone, don’t we all want to be like her? But the question remains how!

The regular marketing for these age-groups via advertisements also helps in gauging the current trends and their preferences. But what do you gift to the senior adults of the family?
