Fragrances & Grooming
Fragrances are a sure-fire hit as Diwali gifts for men and women alike, and if the men in your life aren’t big on fragrances, this may be the perfect opportunity to get them started. Both Bvlgari and Burberry have some woody and spicy fragrances that men would love to make their signature scent. The Bvlgari Man Wood Neroli perfume has neroli and bergamot mixed with Cedarwood that gives it an earthy aroma. In contrast, Burberry’s Mr. Burberry Element Eau De Toilette has a modern, masculine smell brought about by the Green almond and juniper essence.
A shaving kit like the one from Bombay Shaving Company also makes for great gift items for Diwali. Complete with a razor, shaving brush, towel, pre-shave scrub, shaving cream and post-shave balm, it is an ideal gesture for any man.
Another much-loved gift for men is a classic watch that they can wear anywhere they go. A minimalist timepiece from Titan like the water-resistant analog watch with the Black dial and Brown strap or the Black and Gold watch from Daniel Wellington with a metal mesh strap will be loved equally. Fossil’s Garrett Gen 5 touchscreen smartwatch is a better bet if he is a fitness buff.
