    Most Promising Review: "The results look amazing. Mind you, these aren't RGB LEDs. Instead the red, green and blue LEDs are placed sequentially. So only 1/3 lights will glow in a single colour. But they're bright enough to light up the room." – Prateek SPK

    9. Or if you want to go all out on the post-diwali gaming sesh, get this James Bond-themed poker set (₹6,500).

    Most Promising Review: "The chips sound and feel great and rich, as if they're from some professional casino. That is really great, but the only downfall is the colour combination. It can really get confusing between the 500 chip stack and 1000 chip stack." – Amit

    Get it here.

    10. This pair of earplugs which might be useful if your friend is a big fan of fireworks, but not a big fan of tinnitus (₹274).

    Most Promising Review: "Initially, it wasn't working properly for me. With some trials, I figured out that I was using the plugs incorrectly. They do not become more efficient by pushing further in, but actually block noise better if they are adjusted to sit on the contours of the ear passage." – Salil Kumar

    Get it here.

    11. And if you want to go full-on old school, get them this festive collection of dry fruits (₹1,328).

    Most Promising Review: Nice product. However I gave it only a 3-star review because the quantity shown in the image differs." – Ksha
