Every Diwali your house is flooded with the same old Mithai boxes, chocolate packs and snack hampers. Ever feel like it’s just something you do out of compulsion? I, for one, know for sure that most people are just going to pass on the gifts they receive to someone else. Well, this year, I am going to aim for better gifting. Gifts that mean something, hampers that will be used by the person you gave them to, sweets and snacks that kids can’t keep their hand off of.
Everyone loves chocolates, I mean who wouldn’t the creamy goodness and the sweetness with the perfect amount of bitterness and just perfect, I already crave one now. So this Diwali you could gift your loved ones hand crafted chocolates and maybe buy some for yourself too?
