Karwachauth is an important festival for any married woman. With all the fasting, pooja ceremonies and preparations, this day should be made special for them with the perfect gift, don’t you think? Here’s a list to help you pick that ideal token of appreciation for the woman in your life.


Women can never have enough clothes, so this gift is always appreciated! You can pick anything-an elegant saree, a stylish top, dresses-just make sure you know her style.

If you are not confident about her taste, take someone who does with you. You can even opt for a designer saree or ghagra if your budget allows.


Since Karwa Chauth is such an auspicious festival, jewellery makes for a very apt gift, especially if it’s her first karwa chauth. You can choose from a wide variety according to what she likes and your budget. Even a small locket or a ring will speak volumes.


A cosmetic hamper is a very classy and useful gift. You can put together a few lipsticks, eye-shadows, glosses, eye-liners, foundations, exotic moisturisers, etc and put it all together in a fancy basket.

Make sure you know what brands and items she uses since women tend to be loyal to one and you don’t want to mess with that!


Just like clothes, a good bottle of perfume is always welcome, even if she already has a few. There are various brands, styles and smells to choose from – from mild to strong, flowery to musky. You can get what you know she likes, or buy her something different for a change.

Customised Gift:

This is a tough one! But the rewards are amazing. Nothing speaks like ‘I love you’ than a thoughtful and personalised gift. It can be something simple like a scrapbook of all your memories together or something elaborate like a professional photo shoot for her. Get creative!

Gift Voucher:

This is an option when you have to go for karwa chauth to an acquaintance’s place. Rather than wondering what the people may like, it’s better to get a gift voucher of a shop so that they can later go and buy according to their choice. Nowadays, all big stores give them out and they make a sensible gift item for people you don’t know well.

Dry Fruits/ Chocolates:

You can never go wrong with this one, since dry fruits and chocolates certainly suit this occasion. A basket filled with goodies like assorted chocolates, dry fruits and snacks also makes for a great gift, especially when gifting an older woman in the family.
