10 Best Rakhi Gift Ideas

Rakshabandhan or Rakhi is the celebration of one of the purest and innocent of relationships – the relationship between a brother and a sister. They have grown up together, they have laughed together, they have been through so much together; they fight, they crib, but they’d leap before the bullet to save one another. They have a unique place in each other’s heart that no one else can ever take. So Writer’s Pad thought of digging a little into the ways brothers can make their sisters feel special on this auspicious day.

A box of chocolates:

Women indulge in chocolates and no matter how old your sister gets she’ll always love them. Some companies compile special packs of assorted chocolates exclusively for Rakhi, so make the right choice and get the best one for her.

Wrist watch:

Along with being a necessity watches make for great fashion statements and girls know that very well. Irrespective of your sister’s age, a watch will always make a good gift. But make sure to choose the right one – if she’s in college then give her something trendy, if she’s working then she’d prefer something a bit more classy.

Designer gift:

All girls without exception love labels. Period. If you can afford it then this can be a really great idea. A designer saree, salwar suit, dress, shoes or bag is enough to warm the cockles of her heart.

Fragrance:

A perfume is a great gift to make someone happy. If you can afford, then get a perfume with designer label for your sister. Something like Burberry or Bvlgari.

Spa Hamper:

Your sister spends quite some of her time and money in the spa or the salon. So why not give her something that would enable her to do some of the beauty treatment in the comfort of home? A spa hamper is an ultimate collection of aromatherapy goodies and comes in an  attractive treasure box.

Memories collage

If you are looking for something more personal, here’s an idea. Collect childhood photographs of your sister and yourself, scan them, design a collage, then get it printed and laminated. You can add a special message or an original poem and this can be your unique personalized card!

Sponsor a trip

Gift your sister a vacation! Arrange for flights, hotels, fun activities and other things from before hand. To make it more fun, don’t tell her about the arrangements that you’ve made. Just give her the ticket and send her off. Have someone from the hotel pick her up from the airport/ station and get them to give her letters from you everyday, telling her about the day’s plan. She’ll love you eternally for such a great and thoughtful gift.

Monogrammed gift

A purse, a jewellery box, watch case or even a journal … a monogram of her intials can make all the difference. If she’s about to get married, then a gift with the monogram of her new initials will totally ‘wow’ her.

Plan a sister-and-you day

Plan a day of activities for the two of you and ONLY the two of you and relive those brother-sister moments of childhood.

Gift according to hobby

If she loves music, gift her a music concert pass. If she plays an instrument, buy her a new and better version of it. If she loves books, get her the latest book by her favourite author. To make this more special, you can get limited edition things. For example a limited edition guitar or in case of books, may be a rare, out of print edition or a manuscript if you can manage.

Not everyone gets to be a part of this auspicious occasion. Not everyone has a brother or sister. If you’re one of the lucky ones, then cherish this beautiful relationship and celebrate this exclusive festival in the best way possible.
