For those who like putting a little bit of love and thought into buying presents,Diwali is almost nirvana. So many terrific things to choose from, so many loved ones to make happy. That sometimes, too, is the problem: the problem of plenty. There’s an easy way to solve that.

Fortunately, at The Purple Turtles, we have shiny, pretty things to suit just about any sense of style. Run through this list of our top 10 picks for the gifting season and we assure you you’ll come back for more than a couple.
