the cashew nuts. Adding these items to your hamper box will not only make your guests happy but they will

Bangles, sunglasses, scarves, hats

How about we go old school and start off with some bangles as giveaways for the lovely

ladies attending your mehendi function? Mehendi is known to be a colorful and fun event,
