Perfect Gifts To Brighten Up Your Deepavali!

Celebrated against the triumph over darkness, Deepavali has always been about vibrant colours. This celebration is always accompanied by mouth watering delicacies and wonderful gifts. A huge part of my childhood has always been me looking forward to help my mum make murukku upon approaching Deepavali. My sisters and I would take turns in shaping them which then my mother and grandmother would fry it. That is also the time where we would totally indulge ourselves in sinful desserts. Calories do not count during Deepavali!

The best part of all is the gift hampers that we would receive throughout the celebration as Hindus believe that exchanging gifts is a way to express our love and that we wish only the best for the other families. This gift exchange tradition have grown when it comes to celebrating Deepavali Malaysia. This gift exchange platter would often include an assortment of sweets, dried fruits and savoury snacks. If you are looking for Deepavali gift ideas for your festive needs then this article is definitely for you.
