Raksha Bandhan means celebrating the bond of protection that comes from both siblings. Be it emotional, physical or financial security, sisters never step back from their responsibilities. Hence, today is high time that we break through some of the stereotypes and step into the world where we acknowledge her.
And why only her, why not parents as well. If there’s one thing I have realised during the pandemic, it is that each bond we share is strengthened with security and it is truly important to celebrate that. Today, in this article, the gifts are not only for sisters or brothers but for everyone that supports your growth by offering you security.
Now, if you are looking for a special gift, what’s better than making the sister feel empowered too. So, whether you are a sister looking for rakhi or a brother searching for a gift, buy a bracelet and rakhi gift set.
A matching rakhi and bracelet set is perfect to make your sister feel great as well. At the same time, a bracelet will last longer than the rakhi and is a great gift that she can pair with other outfits. Now, most of the time, these sets are designed for Bhabhi and Bhaiya, as the ritual of offering Lumba to the brother’s wife exists and are easily available in online stores.
Times are different today and men are taking skincare seriously. Hence, the market for men’s grooming is growing rapidly. From shaving kits to face masks, men can now not complain that they don’t have many options available. Beardo, The Man Company, are a few names that are offering combos of beard grooming kits including oils etc, skincare ranges, hair products, perfumes, etc.
These are perfect if you want them to try something they will usually not for any reason. And if they love it, what’s better. Now, if you know what they like, it is great, but if you are not sure, going ahead with a face wash, face scrub, moisturiser, face masks, a perfume, can be a great combo you can customise for them. My favourite is Ayushman Khurana’s caffeine range by The Man Company.
Women hygiene has always been a taboo that social media is shattering. Luckily, it did not take educated and smart men and women from across the world to realise that it is the most natural part of our lives. So, for all those men in this logical world, brands are out there have crafted combos and gift sets which include sanitary napkins, tampons, hygiene wash, travel kits, etc for you.
It is not only a Raksha Bandhan 2021 gift that you are gifting your sister but shattering several stereotypes and ensuring that she knows you care. You may not feel her pain, but you are here to support her health and her decisions.
The best part about India of today is that as we are adopting western wear and broadening our horizons, our festivals allow us to balance it and celebrate our roots. So, even though, you have no fashion bone in your body or tons of money to spend this Raksha Bandhan, Kurtis is the best choice you can make, they are again, very sustainable, very classy and very desi.
And the best part is that they won’t burn a bole in your pocket. From Amazon India to Myntra, visit any online store, type in Kurtis or visit their ethnic wear section, select Kurtis, sort the results with their size and occasion and prices from low to high. The key is to find something that is not too cheap and not too expensive. So something mid-range, neutral colour like white or black or colour your sister loves and is cotton, so it's wearable during the monsoon reason. And unlike many women clothing, Kurtis is offering pockets, so that’s also a practical nice touch which is also where she can keep some cash gifts from relatives.
One of the most important parts of adulting is realising which investment is better a perishable gift or a hair straighter or steam press. Well, when we survive a pandemic together, we know it's important to save money for the unseen circumstances but at the same time, spending money or shopping brings us happiness.
So, when we are gifting someone experiences, it's best to gift something that sister is in dire need of rather than “gifts” which are just something one is bored of. It is indeed going to be a special Raksha Bandhan when you will not be gifting just Ferrero rocher or a random cup rather something that your sister needs.
