Diwali - the festival of sweetness and light. A time for families to come together and friends to celebrate the triumph of good over evil and light over darkness. A season of special offers, discounts, sales and deals.
While it’s certainly a time for festivities and good cheer, Diwali can also be hard work. From cleaning the house to redecorating it to planning elaborate dinners and party games, there is certainly a lot to be done. That is why we recommend that you get to it bright and early!
Whether you’re planning a party, playing host, or celebrating with your family, there’s prep work to be done. Make sure you do your online Diwali shopping early - not just to grab the best Diwali deals and offers online, but to ensure that you aren’t panicked or hassled during the festivities.
Here are some shopping tips to help you out:
-Make a list of what you need before you start shopping, starting with the big ticket items: replacing your old sofa with something new; getting a sofa bed to accommodate your guests; choosing brand new cushion covers, curtains, or rugs to give your rooms a new look…
-Remember that what you order may take up to three weeks to come home. So, if you come across a Diwali special offer you like, place the order as soon as you decide, so you get it delivered well in time.
-Diwali deals are usually valid only till stocks last - if you find something you really like, it’s best that you complete the purchase quickly, so that the offer doesn’t end while you’re still debating.
-Lastly, online Diwali shopping offers may look dazzling and it’s easy to get caught up and buy too much. Be careful not to go overboard, especially with perishables like sweets. Consider getting gifts like tea lights, cushion covers or table linen, which are more thoughtful and last long.
