Last week, many cities across India saw the first few hints of the mighty monsoon. It couldn’t have come at a better time, the summer season was starting to get tiresome! Not everyone likes the monsoon though – so, we thought we’d put together a list of monsoon essentials to make the season a lot more enjoyable. For those that are big lovers of the rainy season, we’re sure you’re going to buy something off this monsoon essentials list!

So let’s get started!

1. No Wet Umbrellas In The House!

One of our biggest pet peeves is soaking wet umbrellas being dragged through the house. Thankfully, there is a solution to this problem – an umbrella stand. Put this chic, white and gold umbrella stand near your main door, at the first signs of the monsoon season, to save yourself from wet floors!

Rs. 800


2. Matches Any Outfit!

If you’ve had your eyes on this umbrella, ever since it was first seen, being used by Serena Van Der Woodsen, in the TV series Gossip Girl – well you’re in luck! We have it stocked on PropShop24! Grab your #cheekychic umbrella, wear your most Serena-esque outfit and enjoy the monsoon season!

3. Masala Chai Heaven

No monsoon, we repeat, NO MONSOON is complete without a steaming cup of masala chai. Don’t let the first rains pass you by without this spicy aromatic tea. This one has a blend of Cardamom, Cinnamon, Pepper, Ginger and Cloves. It’s also a great gift idea for your friends who are visiting from overseas.

4. Card Game Bliss

Here’s a question for you, what’s an absolute monsoon must-have for when the power goes off? Well, besides a torch – it’s a pack of playing cards, of course! We have all experienced a blackout when there is a heavy storm, so why not make it a fun and memorable experience, call your friends and start a round of teen patti or poker!

Elephant Playing Cards
Rs. 199


5. Sweet Treats!

Hands up if the monsoon season gets you strangely hungry and craving sweet treats! If that’s you, then you’re going to have to stock this mug cake mix in your pantry. It’s dairy-free, eggless and perfect for any unexpected guests that get stranded in the rain!

Rs. 249


6. Mood Lighting

What’s the best way to brighten up stormy, dark days, you ask? That’s easy, a day lamp! Just like night lights, day lamps brighten up a room without having to use all the lights. This LED lamp is bright enough to use during a storm, plus, it looks super cool when used as a night light as well!

Minimalist Etched Lamp Light
Rs. 3388


7. Always Hungry!

Would our monsoon essentials list be complete without a savoury snack? We’ll answer for you – NO! Salty snacks and the monsoons are a perfect combination. Instead of the usual packet of potato chips, why not change things up a bit this season and opt for these beetroot chips! Try it, you won’t be disappointed.

Beetroot Chips
Rs. 180


8. Snuggle Up!

During the monsoon season, there is nothing more relaxing than snuggling up with a blanket, on the couch and reading or watching your favourite TV show. If you don’t already have a throw blanket, then it’s time to get one. This heart knit blanket has to be one of our favourite monsoon essentials.

Rs. 1800


9. Soup For The Soul!

A bowl of hot soup on a chilly, rainy day – yes, please! Order in your favourite soup and serve it up in this cute soup set. It comes with a platter, a soup spoon and bowl. It’s also a really considerate gift to give your bestie if he/she has been suffering from the nasty flu!

10. Unwind With A Book

There is something relaxing about the monsoon season – especially when there is a storm outside and you can’t make it to the office. Those are the times when you need to crack open a book (and a bottle of wine) and unwind. Keep track of your progress with this eclectic bookmark of the Gateway of India.
