Raksha Bandhan is a Hindu festival which celebrates the special bond between siblings. Raksha, meaning protection and Bandhan meaning to tie, symbolises the knot of protection which is the rakhi that we tie.
Growing up I absolutely loved this time of year, going with my Mum to pick out my special rakhis, going to get their favourite mithai (or chocolate) and getting the tray ready to go to their house.
It’s the norm (by no means expected) for brothers to give money to their sisters as a token of appreciation, but in recent times it feels a lot more personal and thoughtful to gift something they might like and actually use instead. This way when they use it they’ll remember their special brother gifted it to them rather than putting the money in their purse and forgetting who gave it to them!
See your sisters face light up as they receive something different this year – I promise you they will love you (even more) for it!
