8 Thoughtful Diwali Gifting Ideas For The Beauty And Skincare Junkie!
Diwali is at our doorstep (quite literally, because rangoli and diyas are all set up!), and my hectic work and social plans have kept me from getting my Diwali gift shopping done in time! I love showering my girlfriends and relatives with thoughtful gifts that they can actually use during Diwali and the following festive and wedding season. Usually, it’s a whole lot of makeup, because duh! But this past year has been all about going natural and taking care of our skin. So I’ve collated a list of thoughtful, organic and even eco-friendly skincare and beauty hampers that show how much you love and care for the person you’re gifting them to!
Take a looksie!
1. Beet Tint + Celestial Pop Highlighter From Ilana
For the one who isn’t a fan of makeup but would love that subtle inner glow and flushed look on their cheeks, the bestselling Beet Lip & Cheek Tint and the Celestial Pop highlighter duo from Ilana are the perfect gift! It’s non-toxic, sustainable and clean beauty for your loved one!
Price: Beet Tint (INR 1220); Celestial Pop (INR 720 each)
2. Diwali Glow Kit from Nourish Mantra
What’s that about don’t burst pataka, be a pataka on Diwali? Well, that takes a lot of work, if you ask me. And this Diwali Glow Kit from Nourish Mantra might help with that.
Inside the kit are three products: A Vedic Elixir 8-In-1 Rejuvenating Facial Oil for that glowy, lit-from-the-inside skin; the Kashmiri Lavender Hydrating Mist, perfect to keep the face feeling fresh through the day’s festivities; and the Sandalwood and Turmeric Trueglow Face Mask, to reboot the skin after a day’s worth of celebrations! Anyone would love that!
Price: INR 3370
3. Charcoal Face Mask and DIY Face Clean-Up from Amrutam
My friends and I love doing face masks together. So if everyone’s at card parties, and you want to do is chill with your girls, on the Diwali weekend, why not gift them something you can try together? Amrutam, a luxury Ayurveda brand with handpicked and ethically sourced natural ingredients, has this charcoal face mask with ingredients like Charcoal, Manjistha, Multani Mitti, Guava, Chironji, and Marich. And for those with acne-prone skin, its DIY clean-up is anti-bacterial and anti-fungal, and definitely worth trying.
Price: Charcoal Face Mask (INR 1100); DIY Face Clean-Up (INR 1309)

The Ayurveda Experience (TAE) has a bunch of gift sets for not just for regular skincare but also concern-specific ones, such as acne and anti-ageing, and haircare too. Best part? They’re for every budget!
Price: INR 700 – INR 3000
5. Anti-Bacterial Cosmetic Disinfectant from Code Beauty
Makeup toh sab hi gift karte hain, but what about a makeup sanitiser? Unique, right? And so perfect for someone who is conscious about the products they use on their skin! Code Beauty is a brand that has a sanitiser that you can spray on your eyeshadows, powder blushes, bronzers, pressed powders, make-up brushes and even your hair-styling tools… all of which you’ll be using quite a bit during Diwali, right?
I am telling you, it’s a super thoughtful gift!

6. Hair Care Trio Pack from Faith And Patience
Tresses can be stressed with all the heat styling and product use that they’ll be subjected to during this festive season. So a haircare gift hamper like this one from Faith And Patience shows that you care. It’s a pack that comes with a shampoo and conditioner made from sustainably sourced camel-milk, and a hair grow therapy oil shot that’s a concentrated blend of 9 exotic oils.
As someone who has tried all three products in this hamper, I totally recommend this, as it is also the perfect size to try out the products for the first time!
Price: INR 650
7. Gift Boxes from SkinKraft
This brand is all about AI-enabled customised skincare, and nothing says unique and special than a gift that’s tailored to the receiver’s needs, na? SkinKraft has come up with two limited edition gift boxes that include a range of products that would makeup an entire skincare regime.
Price: 7-Piece Box (INR 1499); 5-Piece Box (INR 999)
8. The Nourishment Collective Box from The Earth Collective
The Earth Collective has a very gender-neutral approach to haircare, which means they believe haircare is for everyone and not just women. Their products are a fine mix of Ayurveda recipes and modern science. Their gift sets for Diwali are all about a complete nourishment ritual for hair, and therefore, includes 5 products: a scalp tonic, a hair cleanser, a conditioner, a hair mask and an overnight hair illuminator.
Price: INR 3550
Aren’t these lovely ideas? You can gift your gal pals or sisters the boxes itself or even mix and match products from multiple brands to give them a customised and considerate gift that’ll make them think about you, everytime they use the products! Or when they get compliments for their healthy skin and hair! Happy Diwali, ladies!
