Unique gift ideas for Holi


Giving gifts can be a little confusing at times. But if you take a closer look giving gifts can be simple and fun too. Just make sure who are you giving the gift to and our unique ideas will make the ride smooth.


As soon as you hear the word Holi, colours splash across your mind. You begin to wonder how can you add to the happiness of your dear ones this year too?

Giving gifts is always a brilliant way to express your feelings. But giving just what someone needs, can be really nice. And giving something that is really unexpected can mean a lot. Here are a few simple but smart ways to make Holi even more special for your near and dear ones.


Home Care Kit

Create a Home Care Kit. While choosing the things for making this kit keep in mind the person's preferences of scents and smells. Picking a floral aroma for someone who prefers woody fragrances will not be very great.

  • Pick up an effective stain free for easy cleaning. This can help clear stains easily. It will save effort and time.

  • A mild hand wash can be very helpful. Since hands are the ones that are overworked during festive seasons, using harsh soaps can make them rough. A mild hand wash with a certain fragrance can be a small treat or tired hands.

  • Freshly scented towels can refresh a person. With all the running around on the day of Holi, a pack of freshly scented towels can be helpful to wipe sweat and colour in case somebody has to move out. The light fragrance makes the senses feel good.

  • A moisturising lotion is a must during this time. Playing around in water, cleaning and bathing can take away a lot off moisture from the skin. A quick application of moisturiser can give a boost to tired skin. Buy moisturisers after checking their ingredients. A water-based moisturiser is always safe.

  • Exotic incense stick can change the aura in the house. Skip the usual sweet scented ones. Pick a strawberry, musk or lemon scented incense. These can really add to the atmosphere of the house after a long day of celebration.

  • Scented candles never go unappreciated. They enhance the interiors and when lit can transform the ambience too. At a time when someone wants to simply put up their feet and be at home, scented candles always help to relax and unwind.

  • Potpourri and air freshener sprays are really helpful. Once the house is clean and the guests are gone away, a quick spray of air freshener can rid the house of any foul smells. Having potpourri around is a great way to add to the clean feel of the house. They can be used in cars too.
Pack these up with the best of decorations, Voila! You have a special gift that will be sincerely appreciated. Though it is a simple gift, the goodies inside will surely help ease post Holi stress.


Personal Care Kit

A Personal Care Kit never fails to impress. Since most people are smeared and stained with colours, a Personal Care Kit can be helpful. Here's how to make one.

  • Pack a coconut oil bottle. Applying before and after playing Holi can help retain the moisture in hair. It can also save a lot of damage to hair.

  • Get a packet of sandalwood powder. Sandal wood powder is known for its cooling properties. It can make a good skin pack. It can help in case of skin inflammation.

  • Buy a moisturising cream. Pick a water-based one and add it to your cart. Applying a moisturising cream is a must before playing Holi. It can save a lot of agony. Buy a good one and it can be a wonderful addition to the kit.

  • Nail paints can prevent fingers from being stained. So choose from the wide range available.

  • A good facial cleanser can do a lot for the skin. Pick a trustworthy brand to be sure about quality.

  • People are out all day long and can get bad tans. So a sun tan lotion can be a beneficial addition. It can prevent tanning and keep the skin safe.

  • A plain t-shirt can be used for emergency. In case somebody needs a change, a t-shirt can help. So choose a dark colour and add it to the basket.

  • Some scented tissue can be of use after a lunch at a friend's house or to wipe. The scent helps freshen up immediately.
Pick a box and pack these up. Cover with gelatin paper and tie a ribbon. You can even top it up with a flower or card.


The Spa Kit

Buy a range of Aromatherapy Oils. They can help soothe and relax the senses and even pain. You are sure to receive some blessings for being so thoughtful. After Holi, who would not want to destress?

You can make your own exotic Spa Kit too. All you need to do is pick the things mentioned below.

  • Bath salts

  • Massage oils

  • Natural soaps

  • A comforting loofah

  • A fruit or vegetable face pack

  • A pumice stone

  • A natural cream or Aloevera gel
Pack these up together. If you want to take this further, give, the one you are giving this gift to, a stimulating and soothing head massage.


Fun gifts

Gifts become more memorable with a surprise. You can make Holi even more exciting with some interesting gifting options. Surprise the ones you love and adore.

  • Healthy snacks. Buy roasted snacks and wrap them up in a sweet meat wrapping paper. It is great for people who enjoy munching.

  • A plant. They are longer lasting than fancy bouquets and send across a caring message.

  • A CD of Holi songs can make celebrations fun.

  • Story books about Holi.

  • A colour bouquet

  • A set of natural colours

Now you have a list of options ready, so choosing can be fun. You have the liberty to even design your own gifts. Take your pick and make somebody's Holi truly special.
