by Rahul Mittal

Holi, the vibrant festival that marks the arrival of spring, is a time for celebration, joy and togetherness. Holi resonates with water balloons, bright hues of colours and traditional gulal, buckets full of coloured water, homemade delicacies and refreshing drinks to beat the heat. As we prepare to drench ourselves in nostalgia, fun and laughter, why not add an extra touch of thoughtfulness by gifting your loved ones something DIY? To elevate it further, if the creativity is amalgamated with a personal touch, it will be fascinating to see the sparkle in the eyes and smiles of your loved ones. In this blog post, we'll explore six unique and creative DIY Holi Gift Ideas that are sure to put a smile on the faces of your loved ones. 

Holi Origins: Triumph Over Evil 

Holi's origins can be traced back to Hindu mythology, the story behind the origins of this beloved festival is no less riveted than how it’s celebrated. One of the most popular legends is that of King Hiranyakashipu and his son Prahlad. Hiranyakaship, a demon king, wanted to banish his son Prahlad, since he was a devoted follower of Lord Vishnu. Hiranyakashipu was conceited and considered himself above all divine forces. He detested Prahald worshipping Lord Vishnu instead of him. 

Hence, Hiranyakaship obsequiously decided to end Prahlad’s life, and sought the help of his sister, Holika, who had a boon that made her immune to fire. They conspired to burn Prahlad alive. However, due to his abiding devotion, Prahlad emerged unharmed, while Holika perished in the flames. This event is commemorated as Holika Dahan, epitomizing the victory of good over evil. 

Gifts, Celebrations And More 

In India, the connotations of gifts are far deeper than just the materialistic value; they are often visualised as symbols of love and respect, while also carrying traditional and religious meaning.  
Gifting requires thoughtfulness and understanding of the receiver’s needs. Handmade or DIY gifts are the absolute way to show that special someone just how much you adore them. Even with kids, they allow them to demonstrate creative skills and these gifts can be tailored specifically to the individual preferences and style. You don’t have to be a professional crafter either; or spill out huge money, simple DIY projects with supplies found around your home are often more meaningful than anything that is store-bought. Another benefit is, giving DIY gifts teaches your children important life skills like budgeting, problem-solving, and planning ahead.  

Similarly, with so much happening around us, it’s easy to sideline health and fitness goals. These DIY gifts can be paired with our nutrient laden, tasty nuts in the most versatile flavours. They can keep you on track and make the best of gifting options. Check the list of Go Nuts bestsellers today.
