R is definitely for Rakhi! On any regular day, most brothers and sisters won’t admit just how much they adore one another and value having each other in their lives - but on Rakhi, this bond becomes more special than ever, and we are NOT ashamed to admit it! So, bhaiyas... this year, in return for our awesome love and protection, we want pressies! And just in case you were having a momentary blank when it comes to your ready list of gifts for us, we’ve made it so very simple for you! Here’s our list of must-haves that we want!!
1. Beauty Box
Pampering your sister is what Rakhi is all about, really! And giving her a luxury home spa set might just be the best way to do it! We can’t think of a more relaxing way to chill out! POPxo Loves:Kama Ayurveda Luxury Home Spa (Rs 1550)
2. Clutches Of Love
So, the item that tops most of our lists is a brand new clutch! Clutches are awesome as they hold the absolute essentials: money, cards, keys, phone and a lippie! This one is beyond gorgeous and would dress up any outfit perfectly! POPxo Loves:Duet Brown Clutch (Rs 5,200)
3. Rakhi For A Rakhi?!
“This jewellery makes me look fat…” said no woman ever! How true this is, and what better way for your bro to reciprocate your rakhi than with a rakhi of his own?! We think bracelets would make perfect rakhi gifts! POPxo Loves:Amrapali Silver Hanging Charms Bracelet (Rs 3,900)
4. Mind, Body & SOLE!
So, you know that silly old saying about not giving people shoes because they will walk out of your life?! Um...wrong! The most gorgeous pair of shoes would rather send any girl running into her brother’s arms to give him a big hug!
Sunglasses are the best and most versatile accessories! They frame your face perfectly and always add a little bit of dramatic flair to whatever it is that you’re wearing! These ones, though, are just the coolest ones we have seen - all year! POPxo Loves:Fround Ombre Frame Sunglasses (Rs 595)
6. Pamper Me Silly!
Think of the amount of time you spend at the salon! Now, think of the amazing amount of time you could save by giving yourself a pedicure at home! The best way to get that professional looking pedi would be to get super smooth feet before applying any nail colour! Scholl’s pedi will remove all your dead skin and leave your feet feeling silky, soft without having to leave home at all.POPxo Loves:Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Electronic Foot File (Rs 1800)
7. All Kinds Of Time
The year has gone by so quickly already! We’re sure you want to spend lots of quality time with your sibling, especially on Rakhi. So why not ask for a watch?! POPxo Loves: Fossil Season Stella Analog White (Rs 4,796)
8. Maxi Dress Mania
Let’s be honest, it’s just about the biggest trend there is right now! Along with being super comfy, maxi dresses are so stylish! We think they’re the perfect day-to-night outfit! POPxo Loves: Frena Love Ikat Maxi Dress (Rs 2,100)
9. For Me? Makeup!

Receiving a sari or suit is one of the more traditional gifts one can hope for on Rakhi. With the festive season just around the corner, it could make the perfect pressie! Plus, think of all the filmy photo ops on Rakhi itself! POPxo Loves:Rohit Bal For Jabong Off White Kurta Churidar Set (Rs 6,000)
