It’s that time of the year again, when “friend-zoned” guys go MIA for a week to escape the purgatorial “Bhai-zone”! It’s also the only time when all of us take a breather from constant bickering and fighting with our siblings and take a moment (or a lot of fruitless moments, in fact) to think about potential gifts for the unbelievably irritating person you share your DNA with. The only day in the Indian calendar that celebrates the uniquely sweet-yet-caustic-at-the-same-time bond of a brother and sister is the festival of Raksha Bandhan.
We’re all familiar with the long, dragging hours spent online searching for the perfect Rakhi gift for your lifelong partner-in-crime that yielded no results. And you can’t get away with buying them a mediocre (or totally sucky) present, because let’s face it, you do love them more than anyone else on the planet! You’ll never hear the end of it if they manage to get you a half-decent gift.
So, to make things easier for you, SC suggests a few options for the perfect Rakhi gifts for ‘him’ and ‘her’.
Statement Accessories – Dare to venture here only if you have impeccable taste and are sure your sister will love it. We suggest Forever 21 India if you like the idea; they have some great statement pieces available online.
Gift Packs – These serve as a nice option that combine lot of cool stuff in one pretty package. We recommend The Body Shop (you can even create your own custom gift basket!).
