If you are invited to a Holi party on March 2 and are wondering what gift to take for your hosts, here are some unique ideas. Add colours to your gifting options on the festival of colours by getting a green plant, a gold coin or orange sweets like gujiya. Think out of the box with these colourful suggestions:

*Green: As the colour green signifies peace and harmony, how about getting a potted plant or terrarium as a gift? Plants make a perfect gift for various occasions as gifting your loved ones with plants spreads positive energy and improves the quality of air in a home.

*Yellow: In India, gifting gold jewellery and idols is considered auspicious for celebratory occasions. The colour yellow signifies piousness and gifting something as precious as gold in an earring or a gold coin has an intrinsic value.

* Orange: Every festival or occasion is incomplete without sweets. Gifting sweets has always been the benchmark of Indian tradition, especially during festivals. Get your loved ones sweets and savouries like malpuas, gujiyas, motichoor ladoos and more.

* Blue: As the colour blue signifies calm, gift your friend or a family member a travel gift card. Gift a travel experience which can last for a day, a week or more.
