Fruits, dry fruits, sweets (instead of sweets, they are kept at home. You can also keep the sweets prepared in the water) and two water pots – one to offer water to the moon and the other to give water to the husband, so that after drinking the water himself, water is given to the husband first—that is, we consider him as God and then first offer it to him and then eat it ourselves.
