Rakhi is by far the most important day for a brother and sister. Both eagerly await the whole year for this day to come. More than a custom, this day is filled with fun and celebration for the siblings. They get dressed in their best, save a lot to buy gifts and prepare good food to feed each other. Every brother and sister definitely plan on some raksha bandhan ideas to make rakhi special in their own ways. Try on these rakhi ideas and give some pleasant surprises to your brother or sister this festival.
Collage- What are the raksha bandhan gifts that you have planned for? The usual stereotypical stuffed toys, watches, mobiles are a big bore. Try on something new. You must be having many of the childhood photographs of you and your sibling together. Pick out your favourites among all of them. Make a collage and fix it on the wall as a part of your rakhi decorations. You should do this when your brother or sister is not at home. They will come back only to discover the most pleasant surprise of their lives!
Hand Made Gifts- What else can make rakhi more special other than making something on your own for your brother or sister. Make a card or a small painting for them. The best would be to prepare each other's favourite dishes and make rakhi special. You might be an amateur at this. But trust me, this effort of yours will show how much you care for each other.
Make It A Sibling's Day- You must have heard of many days like Mother's Day, Father's Day etc. So why not make rakhi a sibling's day? Keep all work at bay and take a leave from office. Both of you might go out for a dinner or lunch together. If you have more cousin brothers and sisters, then invite them too. Arrange for a party and enjoy the day to its fullest.
Make A Note- One of the best ideas to make rakhi special is to write something for each other. Write how your brother or sister has made your life all the more beautiful and why they are so important to you. You may also write about the most funny and memorable moments that you have shared together. This will make you smile with the sweet memories of the past. A special and touching gift for your brother or sister.
