How would you buy seven handloom sarees to gift your wife like a pro?


You love your wife and want to gift her ten sarees. But you also are the first time buyer on your own, with the dread that your selection could fetch dejection or an “It’s OK”, instead of the broad beaming smile that you wish to see on her face.

Don’t worry! We wish you to be able to do just that. All that you have to do is follow the helpful pointers for the making of the selection.

Where does one start?

  • Take a peek into your wife’s wardrobe (in her absence of course, since you have to surprise her). Your wife’s wardrobe gives an idea about her taste in the type of colors she goes for on an average (light, dark, pastels, the healthy mix or whatever) the designs that she prefers (geometrical shapes, florals, imagery, abstract shapes etc.), more of a certain fabric (more silks less cottons, balanced mix etc.)  Once you have taken a fairly good look at it, it gives a fair idea on what her choices have been in the past.

Don’t worry this is only for a start!

  • Women are intuitive about the colors that suit them

The colors she prefers on an average tells of her like for that particular color /s. While color is a must in specific choices, you must be prepared to accept a remark like “what one more of this hue?”  Women are color-intuitive knowing the colors that suit them and the ones that don’t. But there are helpful measures in more or less hitting the nail on the head.

Fair complexion and pale color women look more appealing in bright colored sarees online that tend to make them appear lovely in colors such as off white, light pink, white, yellow, peach etc. For that matter any fabric and color suit fair complexioned women.

For the dark or tan or dusky colored women, sarees in dark pink, dark purple, maroon, green or completely contrast colors like white and off white suit a lot. Less jewellery, make-up fine-tuned to match the color of their saree as would the accessories, would make them very appealing in light colored floral sarees.

You know the skin color of your wife, making at least three or four choices accordingly should not be difficult.

  • When in doubt keep it simple is the general rule

You are buying for the first time and you also seek her approval for having selected correctly, so do not go for the multicolor, fancy embroidery border stuff because the jazzy could be a ‘put-off’ despite your best intentions. A simple lightly decorated small motif saree or a light colored floral scape or a nice appealing geometrical design should do wonderfully.

  • Restrict the budget

The first attempt is always a feeler to get to know better. Even your wife will understand if you do not go for the costly at first go. Stick to smooth textured, soft feel fabrics. The fabric does matter and buying five silks and five cottons could give some measure of confidence for the next time.

  • Black never fails to impress

A color that is universally popular, even if you do not know anything about a woman’s taste, even something simple or slightly adventurous in black is bound to be appreciated. Here you just have to ask for the shopkeeper to display his designer black sarees in pure silk or the lighter chiffon or georgette sarees, and select what your heart recommends would look good on your wife.

  • One valuable way to choose is by body shape

      You know your wife’s taste from her cupboard, but remember how she wears her saree. That will


  • Women with pear-shaped body have a heavier bottom compared to their upper body. So, they should go for fabrics like chiffon and georgette, as these would balance out their upper and lower part.
  • Those heavy around the bust and stomach, are said to have an apple-shaped body. Opting for sarees with beautiful embroidery work, would complement their body well.
  • The overweight or bulky looking would do well to dress up in chiffon and silk sarees as that will give the body a balanced shape, and draw attention away from the problem areas. Dark colours would help.
  • The voluptuous figure or the amply-proportioned one looks very appealing in light semi transparent stuff like Georgette, chiffon and net fabrics in the dark colors or deep shades. Light ornamentation like little threadwork and minor beadwork would do.
  • And of course if slim almost anything looks nice. Heavy embroidery or beadwork, big and bold prints and in the vibrant colors.
  • Of course the slightly short and slim would be better off with thin border to seem taller than actual. And small to medium size prints would appeal.

  • Classy and not fancy beyond 40

Age sometimes plays a part and if your wife is in the 40 + bracket, just add the classic to the collection like Kalamkari sarees, Chikankari etc. that are traditional yet quite in fashion. Not so loud in color or gaudy, is the preferable taste of your wife we are sure.


Well then go ahead and do your best. Do not take help from another woman even if that remark were to come up, for we are sure that you love your wife very much and she reciprocates. So what if a few of your choices do not actually match her choice, for she surely would make it seem that you care for her so much that nothing you have chosen for  her could be wrong.
