As sanitizers, work from home, social distancing, face masks have become the new norm, festivals are not the same anymore. Diwali is around the corner, and the arrival of the festive season isn’t as exciting as before. This Diwali, we will miss getting together with siblings, relatives, indulging in fun games, and whatnot.

But let this pandemic not act as a spoiler and dampen the festive spirit. You can have a good time this Diwali with your near and dear ones while staying safe at home. 

Here are five virtual Diwali party tips to keep you and your family in the festive feeling while staying safe:

Throw a Virtual Party with Relatives:

As getting together and celebrating Diwali with relatives is still not safe, you can organize a virtual party via video conferencing apps. Connecting virtually, you can play games, gossip for hours, share feelings and do whatever makes you joyful. You can illuminate your house and give your relatives and friends a virtual house tour.

Cultural Celebrations:

Entertaining performance in a virtual party is a must. So, go on - dance, sing & relish the most delicious meals. Take the lead and organize an online fashion show in ethnic wear. It’s time to get virtually trendy! Work on some brilliant ideas that make everyone participate in your virtual party, such as a stand-up comic, enacting movie scenes, music, virtual tambola, etc. 

Rangoli & Home Décor Competition:
Like several other things, Rangoli making has also been a Diwali tradition. You can time and plan the activity with all the relatives over the virtual video call, make rangolis together, and pick the best Rangoli. Likewise, you can give a virtual tour of your home to all your relatives, and similarly, you can ask other participants to do the same. Whichever house gets the maximum points wins the game! 

Shop Online And Dress Up With Ethnic Wear and Accessories:

Numerous e-commerce online shopping portals are rolling out Pre-Diwali offers, allowing you to select the best watches to buy in India, ethnic wears, LEDs, and so on. You can explore thousands of options and choose ethnic wear, fashion accessories, etc., that give you a perfect look this Diwali. You automatically feel good when you dress well. In this way, you won’t miss out on the feeling of Diwali. You can also get your hands on a Timex watch this festive season. They’re stylish, fashionable and supremely affordable. Timex is also offering a massive discount of up to 40% this festive season. So, make sure you get yours! 

Colourful Carnival:

Let there be a virtual drawing and painting competition. Draw, paint, and sketch this Diwali, as your family gathers virtually. This activity will engage everyone and dig out the good ole’ childhood memories. Once again, we will be reminded of the days gone by, when we would paint diyas, make paper lanterns, decorate the house with flowers, etc. This Diwali, let us make this virtually possible for all our family members. With simple painting tasks, craft paper art, etc., we can all treat ourselves by decorating our homes with lovely hand-made items!

Whether it’s for the best ethnic dress, or accessories, or beautiful home decor, give prizes to inspire everyone to dress up and decorate their homes for the festival. The gifting ideas could be many, ranging from premium champagne brand to your male cousins, or Timex 21 Jewel Automatic Analog Silver Dial Men's Watch, an enchanted necklace set to ladies in the house, or branded watches for girls, the purpose is to bring joy on everyone’s face, have some entertainment with your family, and not just virtual happy hours!
