Let’s Gift Some Love

Karwa Chauth with #basanti

The other day I was speaking to one of my friends who got married this February, just before the lockdowns happened & unfortunately couldn’t even get a honeymoon. No dinners, no get-togethers her life had been a bland indoors event if I was to speak of it according to her as she married a guy who had been with her since college.

She told she been fasting for a couple of years but this was the first year she actually had to celebrate  Karwa Chauth traditionally with her Mother-in-Law, and she only wondered what she could expect. With the pooja & all the events around that day, her mind was just anxious about how she could bring a little joy even as the situation around us becomes tenser with COVID. Her relationship with her mother-in-law is lovely but as you live 24x7 within the same walls gaps do tend to arise. Life happens & opinions happen & so relationships evolve, and it is in our hands what we do with them. So as traditions imply, I suggested to help her relationship in the house, she gifts her mother-in-law a beautiful Unstitched suit set and put a small handwritten note along to appreciate how everyone at home had helped her settle in. With gratitude evolves love and happiness.

I asked her what her mother-in-law was liked & selected some outfits that she could gift along with some that she could get tailored for even herself for her first Karwa Chauth! So here’s a mix of our Karwa Chauth selections - both for gifting & an assortment of evolved girly pieces as well that can be tailored to your style.

My friend was relieved after this conversation, I hope you are too! Happy Karwa!
