Quarrels, banter, or unconditional love, whatever your equation with your sibling may be this year, it’s the season to spoil and be spoilt. Raksha Bandhan is the perfect excuse to pamper your loved ones, or to get them to tick things off your own wish list. Whether you’ve saturated your time together at home under lockdown or have been keeping up with each other via FaceTime, express your gratitude this Rakhi through thoughtful presents that they’ll remember. Here are some options that you can order online from the comfort of your own home.
If your sister is a lover of classic pieces, consider a season-less piece of jewellery like a dainty ring, stackable necklace or contemporary earrings. We have lightweight options from Stac, Outhouse and Raniwala 1881 that she can wear to practically any occasion. Looking for an investment-worthy gift? Gucci’s new pastel-hued shoulder bags will be the perfect purchase. For beauty junkies, splurge on Dyson’s all-new Airwrap set in metallic red, book something more personalised for them like a subscription kit by Mooibox, or order a luxurious hamper from Luxebox. Surprise your brother with Louis Vuitton’s cutting-edge wireless earphones, which are perfect for those always on the go. Or encourage them to indulge themselves in self-care with a facial kit from Kama Ayurveda. Want something they can get most use out of? Pick from Nicobar’s brass-finish brass set or go for Araku’s coffee hamper that comes with its own vibrant espresso cups.
Sweeten your day with artisanal desserts from Bombay Sweet Shop or JW Marriott Juhu, healthy treats packed in the ‘celebration hamper’ by Brownsalt Bakery, or enjoy the day baking with your sibling using a DIY chocolate cake, cookie or pancake kits from Ether by chef Prateek Bakhtiani—and later relish the sweet treats together! You can also customise a hamper with different varieties of baklava from Hurrem’s. For more, scroll through our edit and get inspired to pick the suitable gift for your close one.
