Employees are the backbone of any organization. They make the company what it is and where it stands. There is no better occasion than Diwali to make them realize their worth and what they mean to the organization.

Diwali celebrations at workplace are often a lot of fun and Diwali gifts/bonuses are an added treat altogether. Pampering employees on festive occasions play an important role in organizational efforts of employee engagement and employee retention.


Diwali happens to be one of the most important festivals in India, and all companies; big or small, must leverage this as festive gifting for employees is something which stems the spirit of growth and harmony in the work culture and make the most out of this festival.

Let us look at a few gifts you can give to the employees this year on Diwali.


Diwali Gift Card

A Diwali gift card is one of the best gifts you can give your employees. These cards can be customized and can be distributed to all employees without the hassle of physical gifts that are difficult to handle and customize. These cards can be used to buy anything they choose to, as per their preferences. A Diwali Gift Card comes with a pre-loaded amount for the user to use it across retail stores and leading online portals. This gives unlimited freedom to the cardholder, to use the card not just to buy the things he/she needs but also to pay utility and fuel bills.


A Box of Assorted Chocolates

A box of chocolates and dry fruits is one of the most preferred gifts for the occasion of Diwali. Friends, family, employers or employees - it is an ideal gift for everyone. One can always choose from a variety of chocolates and can even gift a combination of a few. A cherry on the top, you can make colourful and decorative baskets, that will help you stay in the true Diwali spirit. A box of dry fruits is always a good way of saying you care because they are good for the health. Just pack them in a beautiful box and hand them over to your employees on Diwali!


Backpacks/Laptop Bags

When we say backpacks, we don’t restrict to a laptop bag; it can be anything from a handbag for the female employees to mini travel luggage bags - suiting what your budget is and how many employees are there in your organization. You can also customize the bags with your company’s logo or name on the bags for the employees to always cherish the customized gift. 


Home Decor

Last but not the least, items for home décor can also make for a great corporate Diwali gifting idea for employees. Under this category, you can choose from many options like candle stands, statues, showpieces, flower vases, chandeliers and other such products. In this category, you might want to gift a pack of aroma candles, icons and idols, flower vases, candle holders and other such products. A lot of employers choose a mesmerizing grand statue of lord Ganesha for the festive season. Moreover, while gifting a grand Ganesha idol on Diwali can be an excellent idea, nowadays offering a Buddha idol is also accepted very gracefully.


The tradition of gifts on Diwali has a long-standing tradition in India and all organizations, large or small, have been successful at maintaining this festive culture for years now.
