The COVID-19 pandemic has made every day feel the same. With the festive season around the corner, the lockdown has put all plans and celebrations on hold. While families struggle to come together to celebrate, now is the time to make the most of what's available.
The upcoming festival of Rakhi celebrates the love between a brother and sister. It is one of the most looked forward to in our country.
For years brothers and sisters have shared a bond that includes quarrels and arguments over the smallest of things. From fighting to becoming a pillar of support in the most stressful times - siblings share a unique relationship. It's the kind of love where you'd happily give them anything they wished for, but God forbid they touch your belongings! From bossing the younger sibling to being their shield, brother and sister dynamics has it all.
But considering the lockdown restriction, this year visiting your loved ones may not be an option.
Here are some gifting ideas for your brothers and sisters to make this Rakhi special from a distance.
What is better than having a good meal with your loved ones! On Raksha Bandhan, celebrate and cherish the bittersweet relationship by ordering their favourite food from the top-most favourite restaurant. Log into Zomato and Swiggy and find exciting offers. Also, better don't forget to call for that big ice-cream bucket.
Rakhi gifts can be tricky, but when she loves home décor, you can never go wrong as there are multiple options available online. Send some love along with showpieces, sculptures, hang mirrors, candle holders, and even things like bookends or bookshelves if she is a reader. You can choose some amazing pieces that are useful and can easily match her personality and taste on Flipkart.
As we all are in favour of OTT platforms, it's the time to gift your sibling with a complete OTT subscription that could better their time at home. Let the chill phase set in with their favourite shows and movies on Alt Balaji and Sony Liv without asking for your password to access. Pay at your convenience by LazyPay.
Where wearing masks have become the new normal and a fashion accessory for 2020, sunglasses are not too far behind either. How about gifting your sibling the trendiest sunglasses with multiples colours and shapes on Coolwinks. No compromises with fashion!
