Hello everyone! I belong to a quintessential Punjabi family – one that thrives on vibrant traditions, hearty laughter, and, of course, delicious food. As we gear up to celebrate Lohri, it’s not just about the rhythmic beats around the bonfire or the resonating chants of “Lohri Di Lakh-Lakh Vadhaiyan.” It’s a celebration that encapsulates a new beginning and the joyous season of harvest.

The word ‘Lohri’ itself is derived from ‘Tilohri,’ where ‘Til’ symbolizes sesame seeds and ‘Rorhi’ represents jaggery or gur. These ingredients, along with nuts, play a crucial role during Lohri as they are rich sources of nutrients that keep our bodies warm and energized in the chilly winter.

Growing up, I cherished the fun and frolic associated with these festive rituals. However, as I matured, I discovered the true essence of Lohri – a celebration of new energy and a gesture of goodwill towards our loved ones. Sending ‘Shagun’ in the form of Gur, Til, Rewri, and Ground Nuts is a way of expressing care for their health and well-being.

Life took me away from my hometown, Bathinda, to Delhi for work after graduating. Yet, I carried the traditions of Lohri with me, packed alongside my memories, in my American Tourister trolley.

Lohri festivals hold a special place in my heart, evoking nostalgia and an insatiable desire to revisit those cherished traditions. For those unable to be physically present with family and friends in their hometowns or ‘Pinds,’ technology offers a delightful solution – “Instant Gift Vouchers.”

This year, unable to go home for Lohri, I sought an instant and hassle-free gifting option. I longed to send the warmth of Gur and Til, coupled with dry fruits, to wish my family health and well-being. Opting for the convenience of technology, I chose Zomato Gift Cards worth ₹1000 from GyFTR on the YesCart platform using my Yes Bank credit card. With a FLAT 4% discount, I saved Rs.80 on my purchase.

The seamless gifting process delighted me – both my mother and aunt received the Gift Cards instantly, allowing them to order dry fruits, jaggery, and other food items of their choice worth ₹1000 from their favorite outlets using the Zomato Gift Card.

Lohri also holds a cherished tradition for Punjabi families – welcoming the new bride with gifts. This year, with my elder brother getting married in December, Lohri holds extra significance for my sister-in-law and the entire family. To remind her of my love and admiration, I chose Myntra Gift Vouchers along with a PC Jeweller Gold Gift Voucher.

For my brother, an Arrow Gift Voucher was the perfect addition, allowing him to select from a range of finely crafted t-shirts.

Shopping for Gift Cards from GyFTR on the YesCart platform enhances my gifting experience, making it both convenient and joyful. Being instant while saving money without compromising on quality is a win-win.

As Lohri aligns with festivals like Makar Sankranti and Pongal, let’s embrace the spirit of celebration. Wishing everyone a festive season filled with joy and tradition.
