It is one of the most endearing festivals in the country, celebrating the eternal bond between brothers and sisters. Raksha Bandhan is one of the most special days in the Indian calendar every year, when sisters tie a Rakhi on their brothers’ wrists, and the brothers give them gifts and promise to protect them forever.
But who says the onus of gifting is on the brother alone? You can also gift him with something special to mark the occasion and make it a Raksha Bandhan celebration to remember. If you’re mulling over the idea of gifting him something nice, this article is the right one for you.
Want to gift your brother something different this year for Raksha Bandhan?
We have 5 great gifting ideas:
#1 Get Him a Personalised Rakhi
If it’s Raksha Bandhan, there has to be a gorgeous Rakhi to tie on your brother’s wrist. He loves keeping the Rakhi you give him every year, but this year, get him one that he will cherish forever. Look up companies that personalise Rakhis – it features his name as a centrepiece and is studded with precious stones, or made of silver and/or gold threads. You can customise it the way you want, so that the result is a stunning Rakhi that your brother will admire and love to flaunt all day.
#2 Rehaul His Bedroom
Most men have an easygoing attitude towards bed linen, but that is not to say that they do not appreciate fine bedding. Check out your brother’s bed linen and make a note of what you can buy him in terms of new bed sheets, or pillow covers, or even a new blanket. Or just give him a new set of bed linen featuring a double bed sheet with matching pillow covers, a new dohar or comforter, a duvet cover and a matching floor rug. His eyes will light up when he sees the gift and he will love snuggling up in his new comforter and bed sheet set on cool nights.
#3 Gift Him Designer Bed and Bath Linen
While you’re busy trying to rehaul his bedroom, make things a little more special by gifting him designer bed linen by celebrated fashion designer - Ritu Kumar! SPACES recently announced a co-branded collection of bedsheets, comforters and towels that will add a touch of elegance and sophistication to your celebrations. The collection incorporates traditional motifs that don’t just match the vibe of every upcoming festival but also go seamlessly with any kind of visual direction you aim for.
#4 Give Him a Backpack Full of His Favourite Things
Every man loves a good backpack. It carries everything he needs on a trip, or a casual day at the office, or when hanging out with friends. If you’re getting him a backpack, add things in it that he will like – a jersey for his favourite football team, a new cologne, a box of his favourite chocolates, a pair of expensive but quirky socks, a zany new keychain, etc. It will be like opening a treasure trove and he will love the gesture, especially the fact that you got him all his favourite things in a new carryall.
#5 Gift Him a Box of Office Accessories
If your brother works in an office, or even has an office set-up at home, you can give him accessories to keep on his table. These can range from a new cup holder to phone charger, a new tackboard with a set of photos of his travels and friends, a new idol of the God he reveres most, a poster of quirky inspirational quotes, etc. You can even gift him office stationery that he will enjoy using, plus a new lamp for his desk.
