In India, the festival season begins in August with Onam (August 23) and Raksha Bandhan (August 22) and Ganesh Chaturthi in September. Leading brands and e-commerce platforms offer discounts and deals to coincide with these festivals

Onam, which is a 10-day festival celebrated in Kerala, is a good occasion to buy household gadgets, clothes, jewellery. This is when appliance manufacturers launch new models and also have discount campaigns, making it a good time to buy washing machines, vacuum cleaners, etc. This is also a good time to undertake renovation or repairs in your home as you welcome King Mahabali.

For Raksha Bandhan, gift your sibling with the last mobile phone or a premium watch. You could also look at clothes, gadgets for personal grooming or video games. A high-end digital SLR camera or a set of home exercise equipment are some other gifts you could consider. Watch out for deals and discounts or extended warranties during this period.

Before Lord Ganesh comes to your house for Ganesh Chaturthi, make sure your house is ready for the Lord and visitors alike. This is a good time for any overdue repairs, new tiles for your floors or maybe just a fresh coat of paint for your walls.
