Raksha Bandhan 2018: 10 Best Gifting Ideas For Your Sister

“Dhage Dhage se bandha yeh tyohar Jisse nibhate rahe hum har baar Rakhi ke is shubh mauke par Behna tum bandhe rakhna yeh pyaar!”   In 326 BC, the great Macedonian conqueror, Alexander the Great set foot on Indian soil, only to come face to face with his worst nemesis, King Porus. Legend has it that Roxana, Alexander’s wife, who was particular worried about his well being came to know about the Indian tradition of Rakhi and sent a Rakhi to Porus. As the popular story goes, that symbol of love tied on his wrist made the valiant Indian King resist the temptation of killing Alexander. Indeed, for centuries, the festival of Raksha Bandhan has been a celebration representative of the affectionate bond shared between brothers and sisters. Right from the times of the Mahabharata, when Lord Krishna vowed to save Draupadi from all harm after she tied a piece of her saree around his wrist, Raksha Bandhan has held a paramount place in our culture. For most people, just hearing the word ‘Rakhi’ brings back cheerful memories from our childhood. The times when we would eagerly wait for the day to arrive just to flaunt our rakhi-filled wrists amongst our friends. The times when we would save our pocket money for weeks, just to buy the perfect gift for our sisters. Those priceless moments of sibling love overshadowed all other joys and sorrows; arguments and fights that are part and parcel of this sacred relationship. Timeless and eternal like the bond itself, the emotions associated with this harmonious day haven’t changed for most of us over the years. As we get set to embrace the occasion once again, here are some unique gifting ideas for you to make the ‘special lady’ in your life feel extra special:
