Diwali is here and we all expect our loved ones to go all out and make the festival worth its sparkle.
Well, wishful thinking but if you’re the one who has to do the seasonal shopping, it can get confusing. We’ve carved the path forward for you, all you have to do is choose, click and order for your special someone. Here’s guaranteeing gifting success this Diwali, with our pick of the best gifts under ₹10,000 this Diwali.
Steelseries Arctis 5 (₹9,999)
Good games will introduce you to good experiences. Competitive games will introduce you to high-tech gadgets that’ll give you an edge. Steelseries Arctis 5 is exactly that. A gadget of ear-cushioning love to help you in every step of gaming. The headphones sport DTS headphone:X 7.1 surround sound. Customise a multicolor disco around your ears and configure audio profiles with desired application launches. You can even preset the equaliser to suit your need and give it a colour to identify it. The Steelseries app does that easy job for you. It has a retractable bi-directional microphone with noise cancellation and the ski-goggle headband is nothing short of comfort. Speaking of which, the airweave ear cushions stay cool and dry even during extended hours of gaming. You’ll only feel the stress when your mother barges in demanding a productive lifestyle. High-tech gadgets come at a cost but splurging ₹10,000 on Amazon India for this won’t pinch you, we promise. It’s got the Stuff treatment.
William Penn Secrid Cardslide (₹5300)
It’s 2017 and whether you like it or not, wallets are still one of the most gifted items out there. Geez, it just occurred to us that if we saved the money we spend on gifting wallets to our loved ones, we might end up with some money to put in our wallets. But we digress. The fact is that we need to update ourselves to better match current times. And we can think of no better way to do it than with William Penn’s Secrid Cardslide. This baby will keep your precious paraphernalia from breakage as well as digital theft, and we all could use the digital protection as we move towards to a cashless economy. The William Penn Secrid Cardslide is as far from the traditional wallet as the horse drawn carriage is to the modern automobile, while at the same time it keeps up with our traditional gifting habits.
Hasbro Monopoly Electronic Banking Game
This festive season, spend some much needed quality time with your family. Lounge around, play board games and bring about some competitive spirit with Hasbro’s Monopoly, surely one of the most played board games in the world. Give the tried and tested game a tecchie makeover with the Electronic Banking edition, where the currency is replaced with credit card-esque cards and the bank is now a machine that looks like a calculator. Certainly helps with setting up and packing, thats for sure. Buy, sell, negotiate the best deal and win against cutthroat competition i.e your family and friends. Hell, we can't think of a better way to bond with your loved ones than shoving your win in their faces.
Armani Exchange (from ₹8000)
Countdown to 2018 with this good old fashioned ticker by Armani Exhange, with better design than we’ve seen in a long time. The geometric silicone straps are simple to look at, yet solid, precise and uniquely beautiful. Makes for the perfect gift for someone with a taste for industrial design, who’d appreciate its water resistant properties and accurate readings of date, minutes and seconds. This casual timepiece is available in two other colour options - green and black; and blue and yellow-lime.
