Must-have items in your Diwali shopping list:

1. Puja shopping list

Diwali puja is a time for devotion and gratitude. A time to perform the rituals with reverence and devotion. Traditional diyas and candles are essential for illuminating the puja area. Along with many other decorative objects, a decorative Urli is essential to hold various puja items. Scented candles on the other hand with their aroma create the perfect ambiance for indulging in rituals and devotions.

6. Lighting

Lighting plays a pivotal role in transforming the ambiance of your home during Diwali. The right lighting choices can create a warm, inviting, and festive atmosphere that enhances the overall experience of the festival. Diyas (oil lamps) and candles are the heart and soul of Diwali decorations. Placing diyas and candles in your house infuses a soft, warm, and intimate glow. The flickering flames create a serene and traditional ambiance that evokes a sense of peace and spirituality. While decorative lanterns and lamps add a touch of sophistication and elegance to your beautiful Diwali decor, hanging fairy lights or string lights across walls, doorways, and outdoor spaces can instantly transform the ambiance. They create a cozy and festive atmosphere.
