How To Make Rakhi Bonding with Sister Special

Coffee, chocolates… and gossip. Few pleasures in life compare to chatty sessions with a loving sister who is more of a best friend and confidante. And when there is chocolate at hand, the late-night bonding just gets better!

Come the season of Rakhi, a festival that celebrates sibling ties in all its myriad nuances, these sessions become all the more special. Here are some ideas on how to make Rakhi and activities around the festival good fun.

Importance of Rakhi

The importance of Rakhi has many dimensions. Most of all, it underlines the special bonds between siblings. One way to celebrate this is to make your midnight sessions with your sister fun as well as meaningful.

Discuss how to make Rakhi truly special this year – maybe both of you could check out Rakhi making ideas and the best Rakhi designs on the internet to turn out DIY rakhis instead of the usual commercial ones? With handcraft fast fading from our lives, this gesture would be much appreciated.

If you enjoy getting to know the backstories of festivals, you may want to read up the legends about why Rakhi is celebrated, and the true significance of Raksha Bandhan.

Of course, the sessions with your sister are no fun without walking down imaginary ramps strutting your style, give each other makeovers, listening to your favourite music, catching up on serials together…

Here are some more Rakhi celebration ideas to spice up your girlie sessions.

Creative Chocolate Gift Idea For Sister

The main idea is to gift in advance and to make sure both of you enjoy the gift together! Surprise your sister with a Premium Gift Bag from Cadbury with an assortment of Dairy Milk chocolate bars you know she loves. The best part? You get to add a personalised video along with your gift. Check Cadburygifting - it’s super easy. Just remember to place the order at least a week in advance from when you intend the gift to arrive.

RAKHI - Bonding sessions with sister

In the video, which is for her eyes only, you can pour your heart out and tell her that without her, the significance of Rakhi is lost for you; and that she is so much more than ‘just a sibling’ to you. Reminisce about your escapades together, times when she bailed you out, times when you loved her the least and the most. Add your Rakhi wishes for her, which you promise to renew on every special occasion in your lives till they are fulfilled.

Once she gets her gift, carry the goodies for your nightly gossip sessions. Enjoy the video together and the assortment of chocolates. On a Friday night, add some coffee to the mix and enjoy!

Gift Ideas for Chocolate Lovers

Hatch a special gifting plan to do so!

Here’s the thing: One reason why Rakhi is celebrated is that it brings families together. But given the situation, it is likely that you may not be able to have a big Rakhi get-together this year. So on your night sessions with your sister, make a list of all the people who you generally meet for Rakhi, plus all those out-of-town friends and family who are special to the two of you.

Next, carefully go through the chocolate options you have for the Cadbury Premium Silk Bar pack on Cadburygifting. Pick a chocolate that matches the giftee’s personality and write a message to highlight that. The personalised gifting option on Cadburygifting allows you to add a photo to the pack and add a message as well.

Here are some fun ideas to inspire you:

For the out-of-town cousin: ‘A Silk Fruit and Nut bar for our “completely nuts” Brij Bhai! Love, from your Dilli Behens’.

A Rakhi message for the brother could be: ‘Missing you much! Rakhis to follow, but here’s a sweet lead up – a Silk Oreo bar. An interesting mix, just as you are!’

For the fun-loving Masi: ‘Hope you can join our midnight goss sessions soon, Masi! A Silk Bubbly (just as you are) to wish you a joyous Rakhi.’

For the stylish friend: ‘Nothing but Silk Mousse for our super stylish friend. Wishing you a sweet Rakhi in advance!’

Don’t forget to click lots of pictures of these fun midnight sessions. The beautiful brass diya that comes with the Premium Gift Bag is a great prop to add a glow to your pics.

Go ahead, enjoy your pre-Rakhi planning sessions with coffee, chocolates and lots of chatter!
