Raksha Bandhan is a joyous affair for all Indian siblings. The bustling and cheerful chatter of relatives and children is a sweet melody to our ears during a festival like this. But this year, things are different. All celebrations have been carried out in a subdued manner, away from friends and family. Don’t let the pandemic dampen your festive spirit and affection for your brother. Let us help you with some ideas for a perfect Raksha Bandhan surprise.
Send a Meaningful Gift
Gifts are a unique way to show you care. Alter the age-old tradition of a brother spoiling his sister with lavish gifts. You can convey your affection for your sibling with a thoughtful royal gift too! Make the day joyful with a rakhi gift box for brother consisting of an elegant neck tie and an undeniably stylish pocket square. Go urbane with a dash of swagger and give your brother a gift fit for a debonair.
Send an Eco- Friendly Rakhi to his Doorstep
Let your brother be taken aback when he gets a very unique yet sustainable rakhi - a very special plantable rakhi! Carry on the proud tradition of sending this holy thread to your brother even if you can’t be present to tie it on his wrist. Choose a Rakhi that is sustainable and eco-friendly, one that aptly describes your bond. A number of sustainable brands like Bio Q and Be Abhika make these plantable rakhis with seeds which your brother can plant and remember your gift for years to come!
A Heartfelt Postcard
No Raksha Bandhan is complete without reminiscing about your childhood memories and getting nostalgic. Share your most joyous and memorable childhood photos with your brother in the form of a handwritten postcard and voice your love in the most distinctive way. While the rest of the world swoons to social media posts, you can think out of the ordinary and send an old school charming postcard.
Arrange a Celebration via Video Conference
Don’t fret if you are unable to meet your brother on this monumental occasion. Thanks to technology, you can still enjoy the day by watching him tie the Rakhi on his wrist and excitedly unbox your gift on a video call. Top it up with a few sweets and harmless banter, and you have the most heart-warming long distance Raksha Bandhan!
