It’s that time of the year when all married and soon-to-be-married women are all-set with their best festive attire, jewellery, nail art, mehndi in various designs as Karwa Chauth is here. Karwa Chauth falls on the fourth day of the Hindu lunisolar calendar. ‘Karwa’ stands for an earthen pot used to store wheat and ‘chauth’ stands for the fourth day. These pots are decorated with attractive designs and sweets and bangles are placed inside them before being exchanged with other women during the puja rituals.

The auspicious day of Karwa Chauth is all about festivities and showering love on your better half, but what about getting a (few) present(s) for your lady love on this day when she completes her day long fast with moonrise today? While the times are a changin’ and men have been taking initiatives to participate in the fasting rituals with their better halves, a thoughtful or an innovative gift is something everyone will always appreciate. Even though the festivities of Karwa Chauth began earlier this morning before sunrise, it still isn’t too late to get them something they’ll love to own.

Gadgets

Amazon sale that started on October 13 is on until today and it’s the best time to check for some gadgets your man would love to own or upgrade to. From big offers on low to medium cost phones, tablets and more, the options are plenty.

Amazon Fire TV Stick

Love and relationship building is no longer about dates and fine dining. The true test of a relationship is the commitment towards watching a new TV show or a movie together. Buy the Amazon Fire TV stick for your man and subscribe to a few, if not all the OTT platforms and spend most of your weekends in, cozying up to one another as the winter sets in.

Diya for your home’s puja room:

Borosil has introduced a range of diyas for the festive season, made of brass and nickel and is a perfect blend of traditional handicraft with modern technology. It is a great addition to a Puja Room, especially if the mandir is in the kitchen, as these can be used even with the fan on. The diyas create a calm, meditative atmosphere and the borosilicate glass chimney stays crystal clear and doesn’t get over-heated even after burning for long hours.
