The history of Rakshabandhan records back to Hindu mythology. As per Hindu mythology, in Mahabharata, the great Indian epic, Draupadi, wife of the Pandavas had torn the corner of her sari to stop Lord Krishna's wrist from bleeding (he had accidentally hurt himself). Thus, a bond, that of brother and sister developed between them, and he promised to protect her.
27 August 2021 will be observed as Raksha Bandhan in India.
Raksha Bandhan is all about celebrating the relationship of brothers and sisters. It is the festival that is solely dedicated to this wonderful relationship. The bond of a brother and a sister is a unique one and cannot be compared to any other bond in this world. A brother and a sister fight, laugh and play together, but their affection for each other remains the same no matter the circumstances. This Raksha Bandhan 2021, when all the sisters are looking for the most desirable rakhi and present for their brothers to make them feel happy and special, don't you think that you should also go the extra mile to select the perfect gift for your dearest sister on this special occasion. Well, you ought to find a gift that not only compliments her personality but also makes her feel special. Here are some ideas for gifts for your sister or brother that will instantly light up a smile on their faces.
Though the pandemic is not over yet, and several states are still under partial lockdown, you can celebrate Rakshabandhan 2021 by either sending your sister a gift through online platforms or by handing them the gift personally. Here are some gift ideas:
Well, we all know that the previous year has been rough for many of us. Economically we might not be as stable as we were 2 years back. Buying an expensive gift for your dear sister might be challenging this year. Don't worry, she's your sister and she understands everything! Although you can light up her face just by hugging her and saying how much you care for her, you can add just little affection by gifting her a bouquet of chocolates! Girls and chocolates go hand-in-hand!
Girls can never say no to bags and wallets! They always need a new bag no matter how many bags they already have. Be it a wallet, a purse, a clutch or a hobo, they just need it!! To add that extra care, you can always opt for personalising the wallet with her name on it. Oh! She'll love it!
No woman on earth would say a NO to a make-up kit! Ladies love doing make-up. Be it a gorgeous lipstick, nail polish, or a whole make-up set she'll start dancing with joy once she unwraps the gift box!
What's better than a smartwatch for your busy and health-conscious darling sister?? She must be struggling real hard while tracking those stubborn calories. Why not help her burn that extra fat by gifting her a smartwatch? She will absolutely love it!
It's a known fact that girls value memories more than boys (no offence, please!), so why not gift your lovely sister a set of sturdy photo frames? She would love caging those priceless moments shared with her dear ones. Also, to make her extra happy, you can laminate a picture of both of you from your childhood days! I bet it will bring tears of happiness to her eyes.
Hey sisters! Are you feeling lost while thinking about what to gift your 'khadoos' but sweetest brother? Well, here are some gift ideas specially crafted for those confused sisters out there:
When we are talking about men, gift options become narrow. But, a wristwatch has been topping the gift charts for men for ages. Gift your brother a sturdy wristwatch and watch him smile (rare moment, huh?). Smartwatches are in trend, and your brother might start dancing if you gift him a smartwatch. Try it out yourself!
They might take 10 minutes to get ready and still manage to look stunning, but they too spend time in personal grooming. Gift your brother a grooming set and help him reduce that 10 minutes to just 5 minutes!
Well, well, well, as said earlier, not even aliens hate chocolates! As a matter of fact, the once-in-a-blue-moon visits of aliens are because of chocolates (to be proved soon, LOL). Gift your brother his favourite set of chocolates this Rakhi, and he'll be more than happy.
For those minimalist brothers out there, make them more than happy with a personalised leather wallet. They will love keeping their money inside a wallet that has been carved elegantly with their names.
To add that extra woo to your brother's looks, gift him a pair of retro-styled sunglasses. He might be struggling to get those likes on Instagram, help him out. If not retro-styled, you can also gift him a pair of Aviator-styled sunglasses (Kabir Singh, correct!) and watch him woo his followers!
These were 10 gift ideas for Raksha Bandhan 2021 that will definitely make your Raksha Bandhan more memorable.
