These super cool printable ‘breakfast in bed’ tickets! Or personalized business cards for those who really want to make a unique style statement. Get creative with your thoughts and get printing!
The last minute Diwali gift that keeps on giving!
Nope we’re not talking about creating a secret Santa for Diwali (would be a fun idea though!). We’re talking about something unique and thoughtful that will help you spread the spirit of giving not just at Diwali but beyond: gifting a charitable donation. Identify a charity or a cause that is close to the recipient’s heart and gift a donation in their name. A wonderful way of starting something new this Diwali that will truly spread the spirit of the festival of lights.
