Must Buy Diwali Gifts from 6 Women-led Businesses
Being a small but proud business ourselves, we understand what goes behind curating gifting options during the festive season. We personally believe that supporting small businesses is a win-win for both the buyer & the seller.
The customers (you) play a huge role in supporting a small business by giving a shout out & throwing light on otherwise unnoticed, good brands. And the seller (us) get recognised for our good & ethical work, that would otherwise be difficult to make a mark at a national market.
So we give you 6 small businesses that you can buy from, to gift your loved ones a Diwali that’s more meaningful:
