Raksha Bandhan is just around the corner and there's no way we're letting you gift your adorable sisters just money. We know finding the right gift can be hard but come on, nothing is impossible. After hours of brain-storming and window shopping, don't give up. You haven't been looking in the right place till yet!
Brothers and sisters, together as friends, ready to face whatever life sends.
Falling on August 26th, 2018 i.e., Sunday, Raksha Bandhan is that auspicious day when we celebrate the bond between brothers and sisters. On this day, the sisters tie a thread around their brother's wrist as a symbol of love and in return, the brother pledges to protect his sister.
Don't worry. Buying the right gift is very important so we have some ideas for you. Have a look and you never know, you might just surprise your sister after all.
Customised coffee mugs
Coffee mugs never go out of fashion as a Rakhi gift. Make your sibling feel special with a customised coffee mug this year. You can either go for coffee mugs with quotes that aptly describe your sibling or the ones with their zodiac signs.
Houseplants make a great Rakhi gift as they show how much thought you have put in while choosing them. Also, houseplants have a magical way to brighten up homes and workspaces. Apart from decorative purposes, houseplants offer a number of benefits like improving the air quality and bringing down the stress level. From aloe vera to lavender, your choices are plenty. Make sure to choose a good quality pot and tie a ribbon around it before handing it to your sibling.
Regardless of whether your sibling is an aspiring writer or not, you can always gift them a journal. You can pick a memory journal if your sibling likes to pen down her thoughts on paper. For wanderers, a travel journal is a better-suited option. With just a little effort, you will find journals with quirky designs, bold colours, and pattern.
Scarves are a timeless wardrobe accessory as they can transform even the most boring outfit into an eye-catching one. Since the floral trend is still going strong, you can play safe by gifting a floral printed scarf. If your sister has a bold sense of fashion, pick a scarf with an animal print. Headscarves are also a great choice since they are in vogue right now.
From clutches to handbags, bags have always been a must-have possession for fashionistas. Instead of gifting synthetic bags, gift your sister an elegant, silk tote bag that is both useful and beautiful at the same time. Baguette and satchel bags are also currently taking the fashion world by storm. Make sure to do your research first before picking a bag for your sister. If she is a working woman, gift her bag that is large enough to hold all her essentials.
So were these ideas helpful? Have a great Raksha Bandhan weekend and stay tuned for more health and lifestyle-related updates.
