No matter how much they tease, annoy and bicker with one you, when the time comes, they will be there to defend you at all costs. The bond between a brother and a sister is really special and to celebrate that special bond we have ‘raksha bandhan’ also known as ‘rakhi’. The sister ties the rakhi to let her brother know that she trusts him, and in return he gives her a special gift thereby reaffirming their promise every year. Meethai and chocolates are a must, but there is always that one special gift that she anticipates. Here are some suggestions you might like if you’re doing some last minute mission shopping:

1. Perfumes
