The Embark of the Festive Season – Rakhi

The second half of the year in India invites the festive season. August embarks all the colours, sparks and happiness for the beginning of all the festivities. Amongst all the celebrations, Rakhi is a festival where we celebrate the power and bond of relationships. Generally, in most parts of the country, it is celebrated to remember and honour the beautiful relationship of a brother and sister. But many people also observe Rakhi to celebrate other relationships.

As we speak, it is that time of the year again, when sisters and brothers all over the country eagerly wait for this day. Food, gifts, new clothes and a complete celebratory environment is what the day brings about. Given this day has a major inclination towards exchanging love and care in the form of gifts, let us discuss some brands that offer best of the styles, designs catering to both the genders. Also, let us look at other quirky ideas to surprise your brother or sister with nothing but joy and happiness.

1. The Label Life

Designer bags, shoes, clothes, home essentials are all that a girl loves. The Label Life comes at a rescue for all the brothers out there, those who have a fashionable sister and those who just want to pamper their sisters with designer styles, at an affordable price. My recommendations would be the beautiful Indigo Floral overlap sleeve tie dress and Rose Geo Wrap dress. They are both elegant, beautiful and very much festive. Visit:

Ladies, it has become now less complicated and more happening to find gifts for your brothers. The Man Company has a wide range of grooming products when it comes to men for their body, hair, beard, shave and fragrance. They are currently offering Rakhi gift boxes where they have tied up with Arrow, and you will get a complimentary INR 1000 voucher from Arrow.
