  1. DIY rakhi – We are pretty sure that every year you look forward to shopping for the best possible rakhi for your brother. But what if this year you end up DIY-ing a rakhi out of your immense love and creativity for your brother? That would have been a really nice gesture. No riches of the world can ever match up to anything made out of love. There are different kinds of rakhis that you can choose to DIY. Make sure to check the materials required before proceeding to make a rakhi. If you have some leftover greeting or wedding card materials you can choose to affix them on the rakhi as embellishments. 
  2. Prepare some sweets – For every Indian festival to be made special, some desi sweets need to be in the picture. So this year instead of your mother making some sweets like besan ke ladoo, kheer, jalebi,etc., you can choose to prepare some sweets out of your love. The sweetness and the warmth in these sweets is sure to make your rakhi celebrations super special. 
  3. The More, The Merrier Hence Gift Hampers – Why choose to pamper your brother with a single gift when you can gift multiple gifts coming placed in a beautiful hamper? You can choose to self customise a gift hamper by shopping different gift items for him and then placing them in a basket wrapped with cellophane paper. Or else you can always purchase the ones found in the market. There are different options made available for gift hampers for example grooming gift hamper, chocolate gift hamper, etc. 
  4. DIY photo collage – Another DIY gift that you can choose to gift your brother, this Rakhi season to express all your heartfelt rakhi wishes. Gather all those glimpses of the good old days and make a photo collage made out of it. You may find some easy tutorials online that you can consider. There’s nothing more priceless than gifting a dash of nostalgia, so try gifting a photo collage made by you for your dearest brother. 
  5. Spend some quality time together – Your brother wouldn’t want anything from you other than some quality time spent with him, just like the old times. Leave all the misunderstandings in the past and cherish your bond of siblings as you both talk your heart out with each other. Ask about his life and various experiences to get to know him better. Don’t raise any questions which would create any moment of awkwardness. It’s rakhi time, remember? Make the conversation light-hearted and happy. 
  6. Spend A Day Out Together – Go out to explore some new places in your city along with your brother. Or take him out for shopping. The idea here is to spend a day together outside as you both bond well with each other. While doing so you would realise that there are many unknown sides of your brother which makes him an interesting person to look upto. It is going to be a very special way of spending some time together with your brother. His heart will surely melt into tears, out of all the fun you have fun for him.
  7. Throw a siblings reunion party – Raksha bandhan is all about siblings and the bond/love they share for each other. This is why it makes perfect sense to throw a siblings reunion party. How often do we get a chance to interact and talk our hearts with all our siblings? Not that often, right? Hence on this Raksha Bandhan get some food and drinks ready as to throw the best ever siblings party to make your brother and other siblings feel super special.
