Diwali, the festival of lights, is a joyous religious holiday celebrated by Hindus, Sikhs and Jains. Characterised by colourful rangoli, dazzling fireworks and delicious food, Diwali honours the Hindu goddess of wealth, Lakshmi. The endless number of lamps and lights that you find in peoples’ homes during the celebrations are said to help the goddess find her way inside in order to bring prosperity. Diwali is also a celebration of the triumph of good over evil, as it honours the return of Rama and Sita to Ayodhya after defeating a malicious king named Ravana.
This auspicious time of year isn’t just about lights and legends, though. It is a time when people gather to enjoy feasts and fun with their loved ones, as well as to exchange gifts. In the corporate world, gifts are also given as a way of strengthening business bonds with existing and prospective clients.
As this special holiday is upon us, we have decided to combine two important elements of any Diwali celebration – tea and mithai (Indian sweets) – and introduce a catalogue of one of a kind AVANTCHA™ Diwali gifts. These thoughtfully-curated gifts range from VIP options, through to deluxe and petite selections.
No matter whom you’re shopping for – friends, family, staff or clients – there is something for everyone. The Grand Diwali Chest, for example, is part of our VIP gift selection – inside an elegant wooden tea box, you’ll find a variety of specialty loose leaf tea tins or silk tea bags, while a drawer holds a selection of 20 mouthwatering Mithai. It is the perfect gift for any discerning tea lover.
Gifts curated for Diwali
The highlight of all the AVANTCHA™ gifts is, of course, our tea, which is sourced from the finest gardens around the world including ones in India, a country steeped in tea tradition. One of the varieties that you can select for your chosen gift set is our Organic Masala Spice Chai – a combination of traditional Indian masala spices blended with strong Assam black tea that is complemented with Rooibos, giving a touch of sweetness.
Another popular option is Golden Assam Mangalam, which is sourced from one of the finest gardens in Assam, the Golden Assam Mangalam Estate. Pleasantly sweet to creamy in taste, this tea’s aroma is dominated by a robust maltiness, making it the king of Assam teas.
To make your selection that extra bit special, you can also choose our corporate and customised gifts service. We can add your business logo or individual names onto your gifts, wrap them beautifully and arrange for delivery.
