Rakshabandhan is just around the corner and when it comes to rakshabandhan gift ideas, you can’t get away with a box of chocolates or an envelope with money anymore. Whether it’s a sister with high expectations, a doting brother or your younger cousins, why not put in some extra thought and effort into their rakhi gifts and make the festival memorable for them?
We’ve got rakhi gifting ideas for all, whether it be the most difficult to impress sibling or the most easy going one, so let’s start shopping!
For the Trendsetting Sister
She likes to dress up and be pampered and while she knows her rakhi gifts are going to be all things fashion, you still need to make sure that you’re picking the trendiest pieces. Want to play safe? It’s hard to go wrong with a light, daywear perfume with floral notes as it works for all seasons. If she’s one of those girls with an understated glam style, a sleek, rose gold analogue style watch will be the perfect addition to her closet. Show her, and her locks, some love by gifting her a hair curler and saving her those expensive trips to the salon. But if you want to give her a REAL surprise, put all her gifts inside a compact, neutral-toned handbag and watch her dance in glee as she discovers each one! Want to start revealing the rakshabandhan gifts for your sister a day earlier? Buy her an indo-western outfit for the big day and you’ll definitely be her favourite sibling for the entire year!
For the Homebody Sister
She’s either curled up in a corner at her home, or at the mall shopping for her home. When you’re looking for rakshabandhan gifts for the sister who loves her house more than everything else, there’s nothing she’ll love more than some thoughtful pieces to amp up her home decor game. A delicate and contemporary flower vase can really lift up a dull corner in her house, especially if she’s someone who cares about the smallest details. If she loves baking, and if you’re the first one to taste her amazing cakes, let her know how much you love her cooking with a cake stand to display all of her lip smacking delicious creations. Want the rakhi gift for your sister to be displayed up front and center? A serene Buddha statue in stunning rose gold will be hard to miss! And if you want to gift her something to remind her of your love, there’s nothing better than a photo frame filled with pictures from your childhood together, even if they refresh embarrassing memories.
For the Tech Savvy Brother
Is he the one who was always opening up toys and TV remotes as a kid to see what was inside? The one who wants to buy every latest gadget in the market? Well, we haven’t seen his wishlist but there’s no going wrong with some cool gadgets as rakhi gifts for the brother who is a tech freak. A sturdy digital watch is both a fashion accessory and a utility, something he’ll wear for years and years to come. If your brother is not a huge fan of no shave November or if you think he desperately needs a shave, no better way to convince him than a skin-friendly electric shaver for a quick clean-up! And for that hustler who’s either staying up nights to work or always on the move, a coffee machine will be the best addition to his home. For final touches, gift him a sturdy laptop backpack that will be his favourite travel companion.
For the Fashion-Forward Brother
He’s got a colour coordinated wardrobe, an envious collection of watches and a sneaker collection he won’t let you touch. Know what’s the best rakhi gift for your brother? More additions to his curated closet! Men can never have too many basics, so go for a white shirt with a twist, an elevated essential he’ll get a lot of wear out of! He probably has a few good wallets already but a leather cardholder is a simple, yet super useful accessory. And if you want to push him towards a more experimental style, choose an out of the box watch with a designer dial that complements both casual and formal outfits. Lastly, throw in some extra love with a beard oil a must-have grooming accessory for a brother who loves to spot a beard!
For the Tiny Tots
When your younger siblings force you to play with them, might as well have an interesting gameShopping for your younger siblings can be hard, especially when they get bored of their toys so quickly and even more so, when they seem to be growing up by the day! But when you know you’re going to be forced to play with them, might as well buy some toys you’ll enjoy playing with! An air hockey table is a great way to spend time with younger siblings this lockdown. If they’re obsessed with fairy tales and all things magical, a unicorn watch will be a prized possession. Talking of prized possessions, introduce them to music at an early age with a tiny guitar and who knows, you might have a prodigy to your name. Finally, don’t forget to dress them up this rakshabandhan with ethnic wear outfits for both girls and boys .
