Are you looking for family gift ideas for your loved ones this Diwali? In this festive gift guide, you’ll get Diwali gift ideas, Christmas gift ideas and more.

The Indian festive season, which starts in August, continues on for over 5 months until New Year. From Ganesh Chathurthi to Dussehra, Diwali, Christmas and New Year, Indians get busy preparing for celebrating with their loved ones.

Most of these festivals bring with them the fun of shopping and exchanging gifts with family and loved ones. Many Indians live in multi-generational, extended family units with parents, grandparents, and sometimes, sisters and brothers, too.

Gift-giving is, hence, a multi-generational affair with families looking to purchase gifts for all ages, from stocking stuffers for toddlers to gifts for young adults and gifts for old people.

India is also a multicultural society, with Indians from different cultures exchanging gifts at different times during the festive season. Indians love to celebrate festivals across regions and religions with gusto and happiness all around the year.

However, there are also many families that celebrate all cultures and traditions because they bring so much joy into our lives. In this article, we’ll share some family gift ideas for all generations for the festive season in India.

Family Gift Ideas

Looking for practical Christmas gifts or Diwali gifts for family members who live in another city? One of the most thoughtful family gift ideas for your entire family during the pandemic is the Aayu Card from MedCords.

This is a medical subscription which can be availed of by a family of 10 members. The Aayu App Medical Consultation is valid Pan India and any family member can take a doctor’s consultation through this app. 

Couple this thoughtful family gift with beautiful Face Masks from ivillage that are made by women in the rural sector. Every mask sold, helps a woman earn a livelihood.
