Finding a rakhi gift for sister that fits your budget, is unique and that she will like is a task easier said than done. Well, not anymore! Believe or not, every woman loves shopping. Especially ethnic shopping. Surprise her with something she loves, and we promise, she’ll give you her share of the maggi too!
- Sanganeri kurti set
If your sister is constantly complaining about not having enough clothes, a sanganeri kurti set is the perfect gift. It usually comprises of three pieces – kurta / kurti, bottom and dupatta / stole. Given the fact that it is a heritage print born in the by-lanes of Rajasthan, your sister will surely think that you have put a lot of thought into the gift. Just ensure it is an authentic, handblocked sanganeri kurti set.
- Ethnic tunics
When it comes to Indian wear gifting, you can never go wrong with ethnic tunics! Available in a variety of silhouettes, colors and styles, just pick one that matches your budget. If you are confused about which one to buy, pick in a similar silhouette that your sister generally wears.
- Kalamkari dresses
Dresses are every woman’s first love. If you want her rakhi gift to be a memorable one, kalamkari dress is the answer. Usually designed in earthy hues, it is the epitome of art. And we are sure your sister just wouldn’t get enough of it. Just like any other heritage print, if you want to buy kalamkari dresses online, just ensure the brand gives you what it promises. And one of the easiest ways to cross-check a brand’s genuineness is by tracking their social media presence and google reviews.
- Indigo print kurta
A simple, classic and no-fail gifting option is indigo print kurta. Available only in shades of blue, it is actually one of the more popular Rajasthani prints amongst women. If you want to make her feel a little extra special, get her matching pants and dupatta with the indigo print kurta. And don’t worry if you just get her the kurta. We promise she will equally love that too!
- Hand block print dupatta
Whether used as a fashion accessory or a cover in sultry summers, dupattas are certainly love! The best part about gifting dupattas for rakhis is – you never have to worry about sizes. Just pick the one that you think would pair well with most colors, is preferably made from cotton or chiffon and has an uber chic print / border on it. If you think your sister will not wear a dupatta, an ethnic stole in heritage prints like hand block, sanganeri, ajrakh etc. are equally elegant and affordable rakhi gifting options too.
Of course, all these are great suggestions for rakhi gifts. But but but, where can you buy them and be assured of their authenticity? Explore brands like Vishnu – a homegrown brand in Khan Market that works with generational artisans across India to create one of its kind masterpieces!
