It’s that time of the year again, when markets in India are flooded with pretty rakhis and gift boxes for Raksha Bandhan. While sisters get to choose from plenty of beautiful rakhis for their brothers, the men don’t have it quite so easy.
Choosing the perfect rakhi for your first and original best friend in life can be a daunting task. If you’re one of the many men whose idea of a great Rakhi gift is a box of chocolates, you may want to step your game up this year – and we’ve got your covered. (Ladies – if you’re reading this, you may want to casually share it with that brother of yours.)
We’ll make this simple: When buying a gift for a girl, you can never go wrong with jewelry. The real trick however, is choosing the kind of jewelry that your sister will actually wear and love.
Here are a few options for you to consider:
It doesn’t matter whether your sister is a young college student, entrepreneur or stay-at-home mom, she can always use a pair of gorgeous drop earrings added to her wardrobe. These earrings are super versatile and can be worn with a silk kurta for an elegant look or with a little red dress for a chic statement. ISHARYA has a wide range of modern and sleek drops that any girl would love. The Deco Mirror drop Earrings and rose quartz fuchsia Gem Rocks libra earrings, among others, will add the perfect touch to her outfits. The fact that drop earrings are always popular choice among celebs, will only double her happiness.

While she’s tying a sentimental rakhi onto your wrist, why not add some bling to hers? Our silver Dew Drop Mirror bracelet, inspired by nature, is a gorgeous option for a Rakhi gift. The Prism Mirror pearl bracelet is another piece that will make you the best brother of all time when it comes to gift-giving. Hoping to capture the meaning of this colorful, vibrant holiday in your gift? Check out the Rani Rocks multi stone bracelet.
Maybe your darling sis is more of tomboy, and prefers to keep her jewerly simple. In any case, stud earrings are a must have for any girl, especially those who don’t like experimenting with jewelry too much. Buying a boring pair of studs that look just like a pair she already owns might not get you any brownie points. The trick here would be to buy studs that break away from the usual designs. ISHARYA’s Origami gold stud earrings and Deco Mirror stud earrings are smart choices. Social diva or punk rock chic, these beauties are loved by all!
Not to be confused with the cuffs at the end of your sleeves – like our statement cufflinks. Slim cuffs are a great accessory to dress up the wrist without the weight. They can instantly give a lift to her outfit (both Indian and western), and adapt to the look she wants to sport. Surprise her with the Op Art slip on cuff for a bold and beautiful Rakhi gift. If she is more discrete with her style, there’s nothing she would love more than the silver Deco Mirror cuff. Pick the Jewel Rani shaded pink slim cuff for the trend-setting sis.
Every girl wants that perfect piece of jewelry that will add an element of everyday glam to her wardrobe. A layered pendant is just that! It can be fun and feminine at the same time. Delicate when paired with warm colored Indian outfits; but adds some edge when worn with a white tee and jeans. If you like the classic look, go with the Dew Drop Mirror layered pendant available in gold and silver. For a more colorful personality, pick the strawberry ice Dew Drop enamel layered pendant. Even better? Layer your choice of two separtae pendants for a unique looks like our Croc triangle pendant and Croc rectangle pendant below.
The bond between a brother and sister will always be special, and you don’t need Rakhi gifts to prove it. However, there’s no harm in putting in a little extra effort to show your sister some love. Think about all the times she had your back growing up! Siblings are amazing, and should be celebrated at least once a year. Have a Happy Raksha Bandhan!
