During Navarathri it is customary to give betel leaves with areca nuts (vethalai pakku) along with kumkum to women and children who visit our homes. But as time flew by people started the gifting trend. Usually the gifts are steel boxes, plastic items, kumkum dabbas, blouse pieces etc. But in the recent past we can see a lot of people becoming very choosy about their gifting options and quiet a few have chosen the eco friendly path even in their gifting ways. We at sapthavarna salute these futuristic minds.  As we celebrate good over evil this festive season lets also fight environmental pollutants and choose more sustainable options.

Here we are listing five of our favourite unique gift options which are both fun and nature friendly.
