Gift Bal Ganesha on the special occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi

Ganesh Chaturthi is celebrated with a lot of pomp and show especially in the states of Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, and Karnataka. This is an auspicious occasion when Lord Ganesh after being beheaded took rebirth after his cut off head was replaced with that of an elephant head. The celebrations last for as long as 10 days. But the preparations start well ahead of time including making giant sized Ganesha statues and figurines. And as we know that no festival is complete without exchanging gifts, on this occasion too people exchange gifts and goodies. Although there are different types of gifts that can be bought for your loved ones, you can gift bal Ganesh to the ones you love. It is believed that if you gift it to someone, his life will be devoid of troubles and sorrows. He will be very prosperous in whatever he does and will bring good luck to the household. It is usually said that more than buying a Ganesha figurine for oneself, if someone gifts bal Ganesha to you, it is better and works better.

Ganesh Chaturthi gifts - Your options

There is no doubt that if you gift bal Ganesh to someone, you are a true well wisher. But if you don’t gift it, it does not necessarily mean that you don’t want the good of your friend. You have other options too. Some of the options include the following-

  • Dry fruits - A box of dry fruits can be perfect for the occasion. You can also make the gift at home. What you can do is buy a designer box, buy almonds, raisins, cashews, pistachios, and walnuts separately. Buy a designer box that has different compartments. Thereafter, you can fill these compartments with the dry fruits you have bought and gift it.
  • Handbags and handicrafts - During this period, you will find that there are a number of handmade products available in the market. With the preparation of this festive occasion, most of the handloom and handicrafts store shelves are stacked with such items that depict the image of Ganesha, both in his younger days as well as when he is a grown up. These images are designed on T-shirts, table cloth, bed sheets, bed covers, upholstery, and wall paintings or wall hangings. You can buy one such item and gift it to someone special.

Just as there is no dearth of options when it comes to gifting items, you can buy just anything under the sun that is related to this special occasion as a gift.
