Happy Raksha Bandhan 2019 | Raksha Bandhan, in India, is one of the biggest festivals of the year, celebrated on Shravana Purnima (the fifth lunar month in Hindu calendar). On this auspicious day, a sister ties a rakhi (a sacred thread) around her brother’s wrist and both celebrate their love for each other. Raksha Bandhan, also known as Rakhi, is an occasion where a brother promises to protect his sister at all times and gifts his sister in exchange for her tying him a rakhi. With changing times and a lot of variety, it may become difficult for a brother to pick the right gift (s) for his sister. In earlier times, the brother would give cash or whatever he’d prefer but these days, it’s all about innovation. Let us help you out. If your sister loves food or shopping, here are a few suggestions that can come handy in selecting gifts for your sister on Raksha Bandhan.
1. A shopping voucher
Nothing excites a shopaholic quite like a free pass to shop. Shopping vouchers are easily available at brand stores and outlets in malls and even online. You can simply purchase one and gift it to your sister. Let the wardrobe flooding begin!
2. Makeup kit
“I have enough makeup,” said no girl ever. Every new lipstick or shade of foundation has to be tried on – because we are all our own influencers you see. So dear Bhaiyas, pick up a kit that has all the essentials your sister needs and be ready to win the ‘Best Brother of the Year’ award.
3. A short stay
School, college or work – it can all get tiring after a point. Since it’s the Independence Day 2019 weekend too, whisk away your sibling/cousin for a sweet sojourn. Thank us, later.
4. A food haul
I mean, there is nothing that trumps the love for food, for a foodie. If she loves everything on her plate and likes it full, take her to the best restaurants in town and put all that’s ‘yummy in her tummy.’
5. A gym subscription
Fitness is a priority and wouldn’t you want your sister to stay healthy and fit? Guessed so! Gift her a yearly or a half-yearly subscription so she doesn’t skip her workout sessions. We bet you’d earn brownie points for being extra responsible!
