This Diwali season, dna gives you a variety of unique gifting options to give your loved ones

The best part about any festival is gifts. And when it comes to Diwali, the excitement is surely tilted towards what to gift your loved ones and vice versa. This year, move on from your regular gifting options of dry fruits and sweets, to something that your well wishers will truly cherish. To make your hunt for the perfect gift easy, dna brings you some incredible options that will definitely light up your Diwali this year.
Awanti Warde of Cupcake Factory has designed colourful gift hampers of delicious goodies this year. “Our Diwali gift hampers contain assorted cupcakes, brownies and cookies. Right from Cream Cheese Browny, Chocolate Drop to Oat meal Cookies (for the health conscious ones), the gift hampers contain all of this and more,” she said, adding that the cost of the hampers begin Rs600 onwards, depending on its size and quantity. Courtyard by Marriot Hinjewadi has also come up with special crafted hampers available in three categories—Classic/Premium and Exotic, for this Diwali season. Starting from Rs600 too, these hampers include an assortment of gifts like homemade chocolates, Indian mithai, a variety of cakes and brownies, an imported wine bottle, and a box filled with numerous sugar free chocolates among others. 
Another very unique gifting option this season is the Gourmet it up Diwali card, which will enable your loved ones to enjoy unique dining experiences at some of city’s finest dining destinations. Speaking on the creation of the card, Kunal Jain, co-founder, GourmetItUp says, “Our gift cards were created by popular request from our regular customers. They’ve had great dining experiences through GourmetItUp and felt that their friends and loved ones would really appreciate a guided dining experience as a gift. Its always hard to pick a perfect gift but who doesn’t enjoy a great dinner?” The Diwali Gift Card can be bought at a value of Rs 10,000.
And for those who are still looking for variety, for the sheer exhaustion of food and sweets and anything else that is edible, Pan India Paryatan Pvt Ltd, the pioneer of amusement parks in India, has designed a one-of-kind gifting option this Diwali season called the Essel World Thrill box that will offer multiple pre-paid visits to Essel World and Water Kingdom. The box consists of four Passport Annual Pass. Each Passport entitles the guest (non-transferable) to visit either of our parks three times in a year; this makes it three visits for four members in a year. One can also benefit by availing special discounts on Food & Beverage, Paid Attractions, New Years Eve Bash and lots more. Talking about the new offering, Shirish Deshpande, CEO, PIPPL said, “EsselWorld Thrill Box is a unique personal and corporate gifting option. It’s very different from a tried and tested, one-time-use gift. This innovative gifting option gives a huge saving opportunity where people can rejoice this gift with thrills and chills all around the year.
The box is priced at Rs 4200 each and if one
is to buy it from Essel World Freeze Pune, at
Inorbit Mall then he will be able to avail it for flat Rs 250 off.
