It is that time of the year every sister eagerly waits for! No matter how much you pamper her throughout the year, she always awaits Rakhi surprises! This is one particular day, she can rightfully demand anything and you just can’t say No!

If you too have a sister who simply loves unique and out-of-the-box gifting ideas, here is the list of ideas that will help you make the best choice for your sister and make this festival super-duper special.

1. For all the times you won’t be around – You can’t accompany your sister everywhere she goes and you have to let her manage things on her own to make her independent. With that said, how about gifting her self-defence and fitness training classes so that she can take care of herself in difficult situations? This Rakhi, gift her strength and she will thank you not just on the festival day, but throughout her life. You can choose from a variety of options from HRX, Cultfit, Anytime Fitness etc.

2. What better than a rejuvenating spa experience! - Even the thought of a spa makes one feel relaxed. This festival, gift your sister the luxury experience of relaxing at a nice spa and let her feel fresh and rejuvenated. If you want to gift your sister nothing but the best, there are some great spas like ‘CHI, The Spa’, Hotel Shangri-la's - Eros Hotel, Delhi, which your sister will simply love. Spread over 20,000 square feet, Chi Spa boasts of five spacious treatment rooms, including a special couple’s suite. The spa products used are organic, natural and include internationally renowned brands such as Zents and Omorovicza.

3. All that glitters is indeed ‘gold’ - Jewellery is a woman’s forever friend, so what better than gifting your sister diamonds or those favourite pair of earrings or bangles, she has been eyeing upon since long. These will be with her throughout her life and will remind her of you every time she dons them. So, what are you waiting for? Reach out to your nearest stores like Caratlane, Kalyan etc and make full use of the Rakhi discounts they are offering!

4. A box full of health – While you wish the best for her, why not gift your beloved sister a box full of health and energy. Evocus- India’s first black Alkaline Water, is all set to usher in a new era of water that not only hydrates, but also helps stay active, alert and healthy. It contains antioxidant, anti-aging & anti-disease properties; cleanses the colon; rejuvenates the skin; and lubricates muscles and joints.

5. Because putting on make-up needs no reason - Make-up for some of us is not just a collection of beauty products, it is much more. It magnifies the beauty that already exists. If your sister too loves to put make-up and does not step-out without it, here are some wonderful make-up gifting options that you can gift her. The famous beauty and makeup kit from the new collection of Masaba-by Nykaa, the i-diva beauty box, make-up boxes from Sephora etc. is bound to make her day and make her feel special. 

6. A lifetime experience and countless memories - Irrespective of the fact that your sister is a frequent traveller or not, none will dislike a holiday. Gift her a holiday to a place she has never been to and she will never be able to thank you enough. It need not be an expensive or an international holiday, even three-four daybreak to a great hill-station or a beach can do wonders. Many options on the internet can help you plan a perfect holiday for your beloved sister like Tripoto, Makemytrip, Trivago etc. So, go ahead and gift her a holiday of a lifetime!

7. A laid-back evening and sometime of her own - If your sister juggles between work and home and often gets no time for herself, why not gift her something that she can sit back and enjoy. Give her a chance to watch her favourite shows through Amazon Firestick, Chromecast and let her sit back and have a chilled-out evening. 

Regardless of how hard we try; we cannot know exactly what might make your sister, the happiest. Only you know what can put a smile on her beautiful face. So, why wait? It will take just a little time of yours and a few bucks to get that perfect smile on your sister’s face. Believe us, that smile will be the most precious return gift ever!
