Candles and diyas
No one can think of Diwali without candles and diyas. The latter come in various colours, shapes and sizes. In candles, take your pick from a huge variety including tea light candles, sparkling gel candles and golden spiral candles.

Ganesha idols
Ganesha, the remover of all obstacles and Lakshmi, the Goddess of wealth, are both worshipped on this auspicious occasion. By gifting someone a Ganesha and Lakshmi idol, you’re wishing him wealth and prosperity. Apart from idols in silver and gold, there are also intricate wall hangings, brass statuettes, etc.

What is Diwali without sweets? Apart from traditional mithai sold in beautiful, chic wrappings, there are also a variety of chocolates to choose from.

Many of people prefer buying gold and silver jewellery during Diwali. Keeping this in mind, lots of melas have come up with stalls selling silver and gold jewellery.
