Gone are the days when brothers used to pay cash to their sisters on Raksha Bandhan and take a sigh of relief. In this era of sending rakhi online, our sisters too have gotten picky over time. They want gifts and only the trendiest ones, the pretty ones. And this is where the trend of exchanging rakhi gifts started and nobody’s complaining, to be honest. But how do you move along with this trend? By going through the rakhi gift ideas given below, especially for you! Check them out:
- Mini Plants
These gifts are the perfect option for the environment lover. If your brother or sister aspires to be a plant parent, these could fulfil their ambition easily. These lush green plants are symbolic of growth, wealth, and prosperity. What better occasion than this to spread such positive vibes!
Novelty chocolates can be easily combined with rakhi sets, soft toys, cakes, jewellery pieces, and more. These are in fact the perfect rakhi gifts for your brothers, especially the ones younger than you. The flavours available in these chocolates would convince you to buy an extra set just for yourself. You get orange zest, cranberry, almond, pistachio, hazelnut, and many more.
- Custom Cakes
Now, these can become anyone’s favourite because they’re soft, sweet, delicious, and personalized. But make sure that you don’t choose a variety with too much icing on it. Something like Red Velvet, fresh fruit, mango cream, chocolate overload, and dry fruit should be your preference. They are juicy and well-balanced in taste and texture.
- Crystal Accessories
Crystal cubes, pen stands, crystal photo frames, crystal accessories for your study table, and those intricately carved holy symbols and signs in crystal blocks are quite popular. They’re a bit higher in the price range but worth every Rupee. Crystal photo frames in particular sell like hot cakes because they can be personalised with a loving and cute photo of the brother-sister duo on this special day.
- Soft Toys
Soft toys never get old. And neither do lovers of soft toys. They’re the all-time favorites of a whole generation and are the perfect rakhi gifts for sisters of all ages. The biggest determinant here will be the size of the toy. Let’s face it, you gotta have enough room in your room to flaunt it with pride.
- Rakhi Special Jewellery
Although there are varieties for both men and women in this category, women’s jewellery pieces are much more in demand. They’re timeless, always in trend, affordable, can be customized, don’t cause skin rashes, and are durable. And the best part is that all these customized rakhi gifts can be combined with a set of beautiful rakhis, sweet boxes, chocolates, tilak and aarti sets, and a lot more.
