With little brothers at home, things are a bit different for sisters on Raksha Bandhan. Those little ones are quite demanding and hard-to-please (yep, don’t go on those innocent faces). So if you’re planning for a traditional rakhi thali, regular rakhi thread and some boring gift item for them, let’s not kid, you’re just days away from becoming the “worst sister ever”.
You need to be a bit different—do something unique that your brother brags about at school to his friends.
Lost? Clueless? Wondering “what”, “how”?
Simmer down, we answer your ‘what’s and how’s’. Here is a 5 step checklist to make this rakhi a fun and jubilant one for your adorable little brother.
Ditch those classy rakhis, go with the fancy ones instead
The traditional jewel rakhis are pretty charming, but they work with the elder brothers. For the little ones, buy rakhi online that are a bit fancy, colorful and makes people go “wow, look at that!” Many top e-stores always introduce such unique varieties every year. This season, rakhis with teddy bears, Spiderman, angry birds, Sponge Bob, and Winnie the Pooh are trending. Pick one of these and be camera-ready to capture your bothers’ priceless expression.
Prepare rakhi thali a bit differently
Rakhi thali Kolkata with moli, roli, rice, kalash, diya, and sweets are very appealing. However, they are very traditional. Decorate things a bit differently; add to it the panache of modernity. Keep a cute, little idol of Lord Ganesha, replace the sweets with chocolates, the diya with small electric lantern, and make the thali a bit colorful.
After Aarti, treat him with scrumptious cake
Follow the Aarti with a cake cutting session. Order a custom cake of his favorite flavor from top e-store. Ask the store to decorate the cake with different icing, designs and texts over it and wait for his eyes to gleam and mouth to water.
Delight him with chocolate hamper
Handing regular chocolates is a thing of regular days. For Raksha Bandhan, you need much more than those small packs. Offer your brother a big chocolate hamper. You can buy such hampers from any top online gift stores. The basket filled with different varieties of custom chocolates is sure to delight him to the most.
Plan a trip to his favorite destination this Puja Vacation
How every vacation he pushes the parent for a trip to his favorite spot, remember? Bring his dreams to reality. Treat him with an early plan of this puja vacation. Plan a family trip to his favorite destination, and throne yourself as the “best sister ever!”
Use this 5 step checklist and make this year’s rakhi as awesome and jubilant for your little brother as possible.
