When it comes to love, we always put love between partners first, but in fact, love between brother and sister is just as important and by all characteristics very specific. Our relationships with parents and siblings help us create specific forms of emotional connection. With their help, we discover a world that should be a safe place for us and in which our needs should be met. A place where we are safe and loved.
The brother is the sister’s greatest support, and the sister with her love and attention takes care of the brother for the rest of her life. It is to this kind of unbreakable bond and love that the festival celebrated in India is dedicated.
Rakhi is a type of bracelet that sisters put on brothers around the wrist. This bracelet can be given by a girl or a woman to a person with whom she is not related, but she cultivates the same kind of love for him as if she were.
Nowadays, many people leave the country where they were born in search of better living conditions. Yet what we should never forget is who we are and where we come from. Therefore, preserving the tradition is very important. Even if you were in the country and your brother or sister stayed there, send rakhi to India, let your sibling know that you are thinking of him even though you are hundreds of miles apart.
In addition to the bracelet, it is customary to give each other a gift on this day. If you have no idea what this could be, here are a few suggestions below.
The most beautiful gift you can give someone is your time. Organize a trip with your sibling, ride a bike, go bowling, walk through the woods, talk, laugh, reminisce about childhood events. In this way, you will no doubt strengthen your connection.
A gift that always burns, no matter how old you are. Chocolate is a modest but very nice way to tell someone to take care of it, to show gratitude for the selfless love you receive over the years.
Modern technology is evolving every day, and it is up to us to follow the trends. The smartwatch is not only modern in design but also very useful, especially if your sibling is a person who leads an active life. In addition to serving as mobile phones, these watches also have many other gadgets such as heart rate measurement, sleep quality, as well as calorie consumption, and mileage during the day. No doubt a gift that will delight many!
While we love modern technology, there is nothing better than relaxing while reading a favorite book. A book is always a good and valuable gift. Find the genre that your loved one prefers and give her a book of dedication. This is one of those gifts that stays for a lifetime.
Puzzles are the perfect gift. Of course, we are not talking about any puzzles, but personalized ones. Today it is possible to order puzzles with your shared photo. Enjoy the time as you assemble it, and once you’re done, frame it and hang it on the wall.
5. Belt or wallet
With this gift, you can’t go wrong when it comes to a man. If you are not sure what your brother would like, choose classic models in black or brown. There is certainly nothing wrong with that. You can also combine these two gifts.
6. Gift card
Women adore this type of gift and let’s be honest, it’s a much easier job for men too whether it’s a gift for a girl, a sister, a mother, or any other female person. A gift card from her favorite store will definitely bring a smile to her sister’s face.
8. Course payment
There is an unfulfilled desire in each of us, something we want to learn to do, but we have never had the opportunity to do so. Well, this holiday is the perfect “excuse” to give your brother or sister a voucher for a knitting course or work in Photoshop. This gift is very useful and valuable in itself, especially if we add to that the fact that you have listened carefully to the wishes of your sibling.
9. A gift for car lovers
If the person you are buying a gift for is a lover of your car, then it is not a bad idea to buy something for his four-wheeler. A phone holder is something that will be useful to any driver. If you’re more into something more specific though, a keychain can also be very interesting. It’s up to you to choose a special pendant or make it yourself.
10. A friendship lamps
Another very nice gift for a brother and sister who no longer live together. This lamp comes in pairs – one for you, the other for your brother or sister. What’s interesting is that these lamps are connected by an app so you can “manage” the other one whenever you want. Let your sister know that you miss her by turning on the light on her lamp even though you are miles apart.
Giving gifts is as old as humanity. The happiest are those people who rejoice in someone else’s happiness, if you are one of them, you will enjoy giving. It has been proven that most people have a greater sense of satisfaction when giving gifts than when receiving them.
The gift should be as specific as possible according to the character of the person you are buying from, that is, it should be as personal as possible. You need to make sure that you buy a suitable gift so as not to offend the person you are buying for.
A gift does not have to be expensive to be good. Moreover, there is a saying that life does small things. It’s okay to give away something of great monetary value, but attention, love, and time are something that is priceless.
