Raksha Bandhan festival is all about celebrating the heavenly bond of sister and brother. A bond so pure and perfect, full of bittersweet moments of childhood, grows to have each other’s back. From silly remote fights to fighting the world for each other, Raksha Bandhan sure has the ability to pull the siblings together even if they are living far apart.
Raksha Bandhan has its roots way back in ancient times. Raksha Bandhan is called Rakhi Poornima because it is celebrated on the full moon or Poornima of Shravan or Sawan Month i.e the fifth month of the Hindu solar calendar. Rakhi is not limited to the biological siblings but it goes on to celebrate the fraternity between people from different religious backgrounds. The stories of Lord Krishna and Draupadi, Rani Karnawati and Emperor Humayun, and Rabindranath Tagore are a few examples to justify the fact about the importance of Rakhi and how it is not limited to just biological siblings.
To enforce this delightful and pious bond, we celebrate Raksha Bandhan’s festivities. The sister ties a holy thread on her brother’s wrist after applying Roli and Chawal Tilak and then they together pray for each other’s well-being after feeding the sweets to each other. On this Raksha Bandhan, we are trying to eliminate the fact that only sisters should get the gifts. Brothers deserve the world on this day. Rakhi gifts for brothers include various options as it is easy to gift something to your brother as you know him more than anyone in the world. We have a few ideas for Rakhi gifts for brothers which they will surely love.
What better way is there for that protective, hardworking brother of you to show much you care for him and look after him. Plants have the ability to change boring and mundane moods to happy moods. Plants are therapeutic. They surely have the ability to make everything look positive around them. Plants like Syngonium, Jade Plant, Pothos plant etc. not only work as natural air purifiers but also bring good luck and positive vibes. Get a plant for your brother along with a Rakhi and make this festival an eco-friendly one.
Does your brother love chocolates? Does he like sipping coffee? Do you want to melt the heart of your brother? If the answer to all of these questions is YES then this section is for you. Make a commendable hamper for him with his favourite chocolates, a customized coffee and a hand-written note expressing what you think about him and how grateful you are for having him as your brother. A customized mug can have some catchy words that express his nature and you can also add a picture of him.
Rakhi with a Watch!
Almost every person likes wearing good watches. To pair your Rakhi with a gift, you can consider getting him a watch that suits his personality or if he is a healthy gym freak then a smartwatch would be a nice gift for him. Even if he does not think about his health right now then a smartwatch will give him a push to think about his health and try to stay healthy as much as he can after getting a warm push from his beloved sister.
Wireless Speaker or AirPods!
