You can find an endless list of things to buy in Shirdi that you can take back for your friends and relatives. Most of these things are related to Sai baba such as books full of his teachings, souvenirs, figurines, pictures and even stickers and keychains. The place where you should buy all these things is the Temple Road in Kopargaon and some of the popular things that people buy here are:
Shri Sai SatCharitra
This is something that you must surely get if you are visiting Shirdi and it can be for yourself or for people close to you who are devotees of Sai Baba. The benefit of buying this book is that you can get it blessed inside the temple and this is done by a large number of devotees who visit here from all over the world. This book is also bought by a large number of people who are new to following Sai baba and want to learn more about his teachings. Bibhuti from the Dhundi.
The Bibhuti or the ashes from the Dhundi in Dwarkamai is given to the devotees inside the vicinity of the temple from the Sansthan office. You do not have to pay for this as this is given to all devotees free of cost as this is considered to be very sacred and is obtained from the ever burning fire at Dwarkamai.
You can purchase souvenirs and objects such as discs of bhajans, pictures, shawls, clothes and books from Shirdi to carry back home.
You must bear in mind the fact that Sai baba always made efforts to help the poor people and used to beg for them and bless those who donated. You must also try and help the poor here when you visit in whatever way you can. You can even get some clothes to donate to the poor here who would bless you in return.
