Mr Modi thanked Mr Sharif in a tweet today: "Nawaz Sharif ji has sent a wonderful white Sari for my Mother. I am really grateful to him & will send it to my Mother very soon."
Mr Modi had, in a move described as "bold" invited Mr Sharif and leaders of other south Asian neighbours for his oath ceremony.
Immediately after being sworn-in on May 26, Mr Modi took to Twitter to share his informal conversation with his Pakistani counterpart. He said Mr Sharif had talked about pictures of Mr Modi's mother offering him sweets.
He also tweeted, "Nawaz Sharif ji told me that he stays in Islamabad but goes to meet his Mother once in a week."
Mr Modi had sent the shawl for Mr Sharif's mother with the Pakistani leader, whose daughter Maryam Nawaz Sharif had tweeted, "Thank u v much PM @narendramodi for the beautiful shawl for my grandmother. My father personally delivered it to her."
