Sisters are special. They are kind,considerate and care for you. They are the closest member of this close knit community of ‘women in your life’ and you can not stop adoring them ever. And what more,they are your trialed and tested guinea pigs,preferred torture zone and ultimate horror (of course on the lighter note). You love them no matter what, and so Rakhsbandhan is the perfect time to express your love and pamper her some more. She kind of deserves it. Doesn’t she? But buying gifts for a sister is a tedious task (all credits to the tantrums she throws), The Rakhi gifts are menat to be flaunted before her friends and kept safely for rest of her life. So it should be special and here I help you with this because I am one of the luckiest sister on this planet to have best of brothers (especial mention to Sunny and Kshitij) to pamper me way too much and showering the gifts all the time. So I am kind of gift expert by now. Here are some of the best gift ideas for Rakhi.
A box of cupcakes
Cupcakes are the cutest edible things on the planet and they will make the perfect bait for her Rakhi selfies with you. Just make sure to wrap it real nice. And yes box of chocolates or macaroons fall under the same category, the choice is really yours.
Teddies are messiah of all things finest. There would be no little sister on the earth who would not like a teddy by the Big Brother. Just make sure to gift it along with bundles of fresh flowers,preferably her favorites. And a card may be?
Perfumes are something all girls like and this is the kind of gift your sister will cherish for a really long time (till it finishes). Luxury perfumes will also aid to her Instagram posts and she will definitely use it. Perfumes falls under classiest gifts and exude a royalty. Don’t think before buying it for your sister (or any other girl who matters to you)
The younger brothers can especially go for customized gifts for their sisters on Rakhi and the big sister would definitely see the efforts behind the adorable gifts and would always keep around herself,no matter where she is.
All girls love to read,gifting a book along with flowers,chocolates or even a perfume is not a bad idea. In fact an excellent idea! Just make sure to know her genre. Mostly girls prefer romance,chick lit or humor genres. Wrap it real nice and wait to see the brightest smile ever.
A watch is the safest gift that exist on this planet. Metal,belted,golden,steel and etc no matter what type, it is bound to be rigorously used and cherished for ever. Bonus points for it being always close to her. After all the bonds between a brother and sister are priceless.
Rakhi festival is all about making your sister special. So how about a pendent with her name initials or yours along with it too? Contrary to your beliefs it’s not dad or her boyfriend but you, who she loves the most. It would be an extraordinary gift,just make sure to carry a handkerchief to offer when she cries.
A Quirky bag
Girls can never do without a bag hanging around them all the time. So how about buying her the quirkiest bag in the store? The basic rules goes like most interesting and fun bags for younger sisters and most elegant and super stylish for the elder sisters. You can also fill the inside of the bag with lots of goodies like chocolates,cards,accessories and etc.
Rakhshabandhan is the day when you can easily splurge on your sister. She is special after all. All girls like to click pictures and gifting her the camera of her dreams,preferably a DSLR would be an iconic idea. Her joy would know no boundaries and all her friends would sigh with jellousy. Can you imagine her pride when she will flaunt it to the world, click all those stupid pictures and later tag you on them? Priceless!
Dresses are also among the best Rakhshabandhan Gifts and feel free to gift it to your sister. Though buy something which suits your relationship. Like a printed slogan t shirt just for her would make her smile all day and feel very proud of you.
And don’t worry brother, if you are away and can not gift her anything then you should know it does not matter to her in reality. You are already her precious gift and all she ever wanted was for you to be around. You broke her dolls,snatched the TV remote, made fun of her friends and never really cared but she knows how much you love her and put faith into this one relationship of her life which would never let her down.
Make it an exclusive dinner/lunch date with your sister and listen to all her complains non stop and if you are away then there is skype and Facebook to keep you guys connected.
True relationships never blame distance between them.
Happy Rakhsabandhan guys.
