The festivities have started and I am busy choosing what I need to pick up for this season not just for myself but for my friends as well. Rather than buying items in bulk, I like to sort out what I want to buy. Most of the times, the gifts are picked in accordance to what my friends would like to have. So it is a potpourri of lots of things, skin care, hair care and crafts and decorative items that can be used often. Without much ado, here is my list of 6 eco friendly gifting options for Diwali.

I had spoken about them the last year as well and they were a huge hit with my friends. This is the second time in a row that I will suggest the skin care hampers from Prakriti Herbals. It has the basics of skin care and I have personally used these products so I do know how effective they are. These products suit all skin types and it isn’t very expensive either.
