A beautiful and engaging gift adds a special touch to any event or occasion. Almost every culture has traditions and customs related to exchanging gifts. During weddings, giving a return gift to the guests is one way of expressing love, gratitude and appreciation towards them for attending the function and blessing the couple.
The European royal dynasties established the practice of giving a return gift. It is believed that they used to present their guests with gems, diamonds and other precious stones in bonbonnieres, which are small attractive boxes. In many cultures, sugar and almonds were given as gifts as they are a symbol of luck and success.
Giving return gifts is an indispensable part of Indian tradition too. We believe in the saying "Atithi Devo Bhava" which translates to 'A guest is equivalent to God'. India's indigenous Handicrafts and artefacts are a living legacy and a testimony to the perseverance and passion of our artisans. In this blog, we have covered a few meaningful ethnic return gift ideas that will help create long-lasting memories.
