With these, you will also be gifting them the beauty of a new regime of self-care and the gift of time.
WHY DO WE GIVE GIFTS?
The practice of gifting has been prevalent since ancient times across all cultures and holds special significance in the Indian context where giving gifts or 'daan' was an important aspect of one's dharma or duty. It has found mention through Kamadhenu, or the Sacred Cow, and KalpaVriksh, the wish-fulfilling divine tree, which gave gifts of abundance. Or Sudama who carried gifts for his friend Lord Krishna. Gifts carried by the Maggi is mentioned in the Bible. In modern traditions too, every festive occasion is marked by people meeting and greeting each other and exchanging gifts.
"It blesseth him that gives and him that takes"
Shakespeare might have said this about "the gift of mercy" in the "Merchant of Venice", but it applies equally to all gifts. Because at the core of any gift is the the thought of "giving". And giving could be a physical gift or an act of kindness or the gift of time. It basically implies that you want to help and that you care. It also indicates empathy, because you need to put yourself in the shoes of the receiver to figure out what that person needs or wants. Empathy and act of giving, according to scientific studies, releases the happy hormone "oxytocin", which courses through one's brain and body and makes one feel good. The receiver, too, feels delighted, whether it is a surprise or even if it is a planned one. A feeling of being thought of, being appreciated and cared for. So gifts provide a good feeling for the giver and the receiver, and definitely a way to establish the special bond or relationship between them.
Festive times and celebratory moments are the perfect time for a gift, a gift for yourself, or for someone else like friends, lovers, family, professional or business. The festive season in most cultures starts with Navratri & Dussehra, proceeds on to Thanksgiving, Diwali and Christmas. Planning gifts early can leave you stress-free. And if one is not very well-planned, identifying some good sources for thoughtful gifts the year round is a good idea for even last minute gifts. With either of these courses of action, get ready to enjoy the festivals or any occasion with full fervour.
8 Best Diwali Gift Ideas To Find The Right Sustainable Gifts
How often have we struggled to find sustainable gifts for people--loved ones or stark strangers, friends, spouses, lovers, brothers, sisters, bosses, employees, business associates, babies, children, neighbours!
We have an endless stream of questions before we zone into the perfect one -
- Will it be unique / creative? Will it be different from what others are giving?
- Will it be appropriate for the occasion whether its for festivals, birthdays, anniversary or corporate gifting.
- Will it be something desirable? Will it look appealing to the receiver? Will they "love" it, or do they aspire for it?
- Will it be useful, even if I don't know their exact needs? Will it be considered valuable enough to not go waste? Or will it just be passed on by the recipient to the next in line?
- Will it look thoughtful? Will they feel that it is perfect for them and just what they needed? Will I be thanked for it from the bottom of their heart?
- Will it be a sustainable gift--can it be enjoyed by the recipient over a longer period of time?
- Is it an eco-friendly gift? Now that we're all realizing the importance of sustainable lifestyles for the planet, most people look for gifts that are not only beneficial to them but also harmless for the planet.
- Finally, but as importantly, will it fit into my budget?

2 - Rediscover Ancient Traditions for Modern Lives
TURMERIC or Haldi, Haridra, Manjal as it is also known, is India's ancient secret for skincare & wellness. It is inextricably woven into the fabric of Indian culture through cultural ceremonies, rituals, and daily life. It has been recommended in Ayurvedic texts for its protective, preventive, therapeutic, balancing, healing and cosmetic properties.
Turmeric paste was applied regularly for babies, children, teenagers, brides-to-be, young couples, women of all ages, to counter the effects of age, environment and lifestyle, and to prevent and address specific issues like acne, blemishes, scars and uneven skin tone. Forgotten traditions, busy lives, the characteristic yellow colour, the mess, the time-consuming routine of turmeric paste application discourage us from reaping the benefits of this powerful and magical turmeric in our modern-day lives.
Parama Naturals aims to bring back the multifarious benefits of Turmeric in a modern, easy-to-use format. Experience the healing touch of mother turmeric in stain-free formulations, combined with the soothing touch of cold-pressed oils. Get natural antioxidants in potent doses for protection from the harmful effects of environment, aging and chemicals.
