Dhan, meaning wealth and Teras, meaning thirteen, the festival of Dhan Teras falls on the thirteenth day of the Ashwin month. According to the Hindu Lunar calendar, it is celebrated three days before Diwali, thus marking its beginning. It is the day Goddess Lakshmi is worshipped as many devout Hindus believe it will bring them success in life, lots of wealth and prosperity. This is why; it is the perfect occasion to start new ventures as well.
Decorating the house with flowers, diyas and rangolis, purchasing gold, silver, new utensils, Lakshmi puja and exchanging gifts, all this is significant to the festival. For some it is the day of new beginnings. Thus, perfect gifts make it more memorable. Here are some Dhan Teras gift ideas for your inspiration:
Home and Kitchen Appliances: Festivals are occasions when old things are replaced by new ones. Home appliances such as a fresco coffee maker from Morphy Richards or efficient cook tops from Phillips are few practical and useful presents you can gift this year.
Gadgets and Computers: If a loved one is beginning a new business, he or she should do so with a new laptop. Similarly, a perfect camera would be the best gift for a photography enthusiast. As far as gifts for youngsters are concerned, it is never too soon to buy them the latest mobile phone
Home Décor and Furnishing: Needless to say, this is quite favourite with most homemakers. No festivity is complete without a festive décor both inside and outside the house
Festive Hampers: Diwali being just three days away, this auspicious occasion calls for some sweet treats and crunchy nuts. Beside contributing to the, colourful and joyous ambiance, flowers also bring prosperity at home.
