A day when all of the bickering and squabbling is set aside for a brief truce between brother and sister – Raskshabanshan is a celebration of this unique sibling bond. As far as tradeoffs go, the Raksha Bandhan deal is a pretty sweet one. One rakhi equals one gift.
The giving of the rakhi from sister to brother symbolizes protection against evil or in other words, a reminder that your sister will always have your back. But how does one find a gift equivalent to eternal protection? Well, if you’ve been stumped on what to get your sister or have just procrastinated until it’s too late, here is a foolproof solution that is sure to win her favor – Get her jewellery.
Appeal to the fashionista in her with some timeless jewellery and give her a gift that lasts longer than the box of chocolates you had originally planned to get.
Jewellery is one of the easiest gift fixes and is guaranteed to work. For starters, designer jewellery is not something that people often buy for themselves which is what makes receiving this kind of luxury item so exciting and special. It represents thought and care and thus has sentimental value as well.
Furthermore, jewellery is also a functional, wearable item that any girl is bound to have use for. This means that it won’t just sit in the closet gathering dust, but is a useful gift that serves a purpose. With jewellery, you don’t have to fret about size or styles or whether they already own the same thing or not.
You can get a big statement piece for someone with a bolder personality or find something more understated for someone with a more subtle style. The variety in the styles and designs is tremendous and this gives you a broad range of options to choose from.
So, to help narrow down your options, here are 10 of our favourite jewellery pieces to commemorate that special bond on Raksha Bandhan.
