With Diwali almost upon us, it’s time to get those mithai gift boxes for your loved ones, to shower them with the appreciation they deserve at this special time of the year. We all have our beloved stores where we make our annual pilgrimage to stock up on traditional, sweet Diwali gifts, but how about trying something different this year? Let’s take a peek at some of the best places across the country that will blow your socks off with their festive temptations!
With fusion mithai continuing to be the rage and with competition becoming fiercer every year, Nihira & Co takes the luxury mithai game to another level! Think gorgeous looking Motichoor laddoos flavoured with champagne, blueberry, lavender & wine and sumptuous Cheesecake barfi, to name just a few. Although they are based in New Delhi, they ship pan-India and their products are customisable too.
