Raksha Bandhan, which we lovingly call as Rakhi, marks the auspicious beginning of the festive season each year and brings along with it, a joyous hustle in the markets for the buying of beautiful rakhis and rakhi gifts. Doting sisters see no bounds to pamper their adorable brothers with the best that they can present. And that's why we bring to you these ideas for rakhi gift for brothers.
Other than the conventional gifts like chocolates, apparels, and accessories, there are some unconventional yet useful and creative gifts that sisters can buy or create for this Rakhi.
Here are some brilliant ideas according to the age group of your brother.
The Kid Brother
If your brother is a little boy, you can gift him a stationary basket filled with colors and fancy erasers and pencils. You could also add a coloring book or a story book. A milk mug with his picture on it or a sipper would appeal to a kid too. His favorite superhero can also make a great gift. Not to mention, a video game would definitely make the little one jump up and down with joy!
The Teenage Brother
For a teenager, tickets to a nearby amusement/water park might thrill him immensely and even better if you can include one of his friends. You could also gift him accessories of his favorite sport like a football or a cricket bat. Or even a large poster or a T-shirt of his favorite Rock band would do the trick!
The College-Going Brother
If the young lad in your family is college going, the best Rakhi gift would be a cool gadget (only if your budget allows). Your brother might adore you for the latest version of the play station or Xbox 360 and if he already has the equipment, you can gift him the CDs of the latest games available for that particular gaming device. Apart from that, a top designer brand’s t-shirt, a smart backpack, sneakers or a cool bracelet, which he can show off among his friends, would be an awesome gift. A hamper of toiletries or a nice shaving kit is also a good gift for Rakhi.
The Working Brother
For a working professional, nothing pleases more than a nice tie/cufflinks for one of his special meetings. A smart briefcase/laptop bag that he can carry around would also be very useful. A souvenir for his office table, a nice picture frame (an electronic frame is a very good gift, if your budget allows), a best brother mug for his coffee breaks will always make him smile with each sip as he thinks about you!
The Married Brother
If your brother is married, probably, it would be more considerate to include his wife too. You could gift them a couple spa session; a nice camera for him to record all his beautiful memories; or a handmade personalized collage of old and new pictures which will remind him of his childhood memories. You could also buy them a home décor item or a small piece of furniture to grace their home.
The Traditional Brother
Anything bought with love and topped with some sweets would please your traditional brother, especially when presented along with an elegantly decorated Rakhi Thali. Combined with dry fruit box, it would definitely make a special gift. You could also gift them a music collection of old songs and ghazals or talk CDs of some genuine spiritual gurus for their mental peace.
Make this and every Rakhi a very special day for the very special man in your life. Brothers are, after all, one of the best gifts for the entire lifetime.
