Rakhi Gift Ideas and Tips for Selecting Rakhi gifts
Rakhi is the festival of abundance, joy, emotional and memorable moments for any family. Especially two members are very excited about the day. Brother and sister are the energy source of any family and that source becomes more intensify at this day. Mothers and sisters of a family prepare delicious food and sweet dish.
The preparation of Rakhi starts weeks ago. Siblings start planning for how they want to spend the day. How they will celebrate with each other, which dishes they would like to have and most importantly and what type of gifts they are expecting on the day of Rakhi.
Cash and what more?
Earlier, brothers used to give money as a token of the wish. They make a cover and place a decent amount of cash for the day of Rakhi. So when the sister ties the rakhi on the wrist, brothers give cash and sister happily accept it.
Gone are the days when such give-and-take used to happen on the day of Rakhi. Now the time has changed and so do the type of gifts on the day of Rakhi. People are more emphasizing on the other gifts rather than cash. Brothers do give cash to the sisters because it is a ritual, but they love to offer their beloved sister with exciting and (sometimes) expensive gifts to show their love. But most importantly, the challenge is which gift to choose and the little anxiety of the uncertainty of your gifts being liked. Well, we have come up with a set of guidelines and ideas of what you can choose and how you can choose a Rakhi gift for your sibling.
Understand their personality
Before choosing present for anyone, we must have a decent idea of how that person is. If you are choosing a gift for your brother, keep in mind that how he looks and what he likes. If his skin tone is grayish and you brought shirts whose color does not go with her skin tone, then your gift would be a total disaster. If you are choosing a shirt, understand that what type of color suits your brother. During your other shopping, which type of color does he picks for his clothes and decide accordingly.
If you are choosing a gift for your sister, you are lucky because girls can be offered with wide range of gifts and clothes. In market, there are so many options available to choose from. You can go with kurtis, leggings, lehenga, top, jeans, skirts, bracelets, hairbands, keychains, etc. Here, also make sure that what type of clothes your sister often chooses to buy, what kind of accessories she likes when she goes out and decide accordingly.
Break the stereotype
Brothers often choose wrist watches or bags to gift their sisters. Also, sisters decide watches or wallets for their counterparts. Many of you must have used these gifts already. So kindly avoid purchasing the similar type of gifts if possible. Keep in mind that should be surprising and hard to guess. Nobody can predict what you are offering as the gifts.
Seek help from others and know their hobbies
Only a boy can understand what type of surprises a boy expects and vice versa. Sisters can ask father and brothers can ask mothers or sister-in-law what they should gift. If your brother likes say Marvel Avengers, you can gift him a t-shirt of Iron-man or the Hulk. In other words, themed clothes as per the liking of your counterpart. You can also give a cool sunglasses shades if your brother/sister frequently used sunglasses in outings. You can go to the nearest opticians or showroom and ask for trendy shades. You can bring one of your male friends to choose a decent product. Perfumes are also one of the good options you can go with. Don’t spoil the mood with a strong or the type of smell your brother/sister does not like. You should go with this option even if you know your sibling properly. If your brother/sister like to paint, you can give them a set of acrylic colors and a few canvases. Don’t forget to add professional brushes in the list.
