Diwali is perhaps the biggest festival in Hindu religion and is also an important festival in Sikhism and Jainism. Although the religious significance of this festival varies within India from region to region based on beliefs and legends, one unifying factor is the worship of goddess laxmi( the Hindu goddess of wealth and prosperity). The rituals start from Dhanteras (celebrated two days before Diwali, with the customary buying of utensils, coins etc. made up of precious metals) and continue till Diwali itself, when the whole family participates in the rituals.
Given the importance of Diwali, organizations spend a lot of time and money on giving gifts to their employees, partners and clients, with the commonly given gifts being dinnerware, appliances, blankets etc. Although less common, various products having a religious significance are also given as gifts. So why not surprise the people you appreciate with a novel gift that matches the religious beliefs around Diwali.
